Did you like Barry's SOTU speech? If you are a Dem, you probably did, if you're not maybe not so much. I thought it was a pretty good speech but that's all it was, a speech.

The last time I was moved by a political speech was Jesse Jackson, at the 1984 Democratic National Convention in San Francisco. I was 33 years old. I guess that was still just young enough. New day commin', ya know. If I watched that same speech today, I wonder if it would have any effect on me?

So far, I still like Barry. I'm still with the Dems. I'll keep voting for them. That just means that nothing has changed in America.

I wouldn't read anything else into it, either way.

I'm a Democrat, didn't find anything moving in it.

I think pretty much that the current crop of politicians use speeches to massage the base, and their biggest hope is to make it all the way through without stumbling.

Maybe politicians should quit giving speeches.
