No sirree, Bob from Oregon or Hal from Utah. Not a word tonight from this President about the greatest story ever denied.
No throwing open the doors of the great hall to the most stupendous opportunity and challenge humanity has ever faced. No walking through the gateway to the stars. Not this time.
Lots of rhetoric. Lots of ways to save a dime. Simplify, cut red tape, think bigger, freeze expenditures (yawwnnnn…).
You deserve to know, win the future, America is worth it. On and on.
No Abraham Lincoln, no Martin Luther King here tonight. Great opportunity missed.
How excruciating listening to such a speech when we know what awaits us.
