SOTU BLOG REACTION ROUNDUP
Kathy Kinsley heard it on the radio and said Bush sounded like Captain Kirk. Cool! Klingon bastards tried to kill my father!
Glenn Reynolds notes that he said the thing about having to be credible to be taken seriously before Bush. I’d note that Fonzie said it twenty years before either of them.
Steven Taylor has an early talking head roundup. Peggy Noonan and Pat Buchanan both loved it. Hmm.
Frank J watched the speech in HDTV and really liked the HDTV. Wanted more tanks, though.
John Cole has a few posts on it. He really liked the listing of countries in our unilateral war, too. Confirming my guess that that’s the line of the night.
Matthew Stinson has several comments. The funniest one is the Nancy Pelosi-botox one.
Kevin Drum says the Democratic response was “just horrible” and has numerous comments on the Bush speech, saying it did its political job well although he disagrees with several points and thinks some of it took some real nerve. He also notes that most of the domestic programs won’t actually happen. What else is new?
Everyone who mentioned the Democratic response thought it was abysmal. The opposition response always is. They should be canned. It’s not like there’s not a chance to speak in the days ahead. And, my word, Nancy Pelosi is a stiff. And Tom Daschle sounds like the SNL version of Al Gore. What’s up with that?
