It's not a matter of too much nitpicking; apparently no one here gets the point because they are so busy flashing their bias nothing else matters. This IS NOT about party issues; as anyone should know by now I can't stand either the asses or the elephants (actually I mostly consider them all asses, but that's a different point entirely...).
The point is that POTUS made a lot of factual assertions last night. If you're part of the group that is so in love with Obama that you'll agree with whatever drips from his mouth, OR if you are part of the group that wouldn't agree with him if said the surface of the sun would probably be considered hot by most humans, then it doesn't matter what he says or what I think or what the facts really are, right?
But my point was that my ears perked up when I heard him rattle that off, and hey, you can label it as too much nitpicking if you like (so you can comfortably ignore the point), but since it is not a factually correct statement, it simply made me wonder what else he was glossing over or ignoring or being less than truthful about amidst all the flowery rhetoric and falderal that are the foundation of most any political address.
As to intelligence, Obama has always been an intelligent, thoughtful speaker. I have no doubt he could write his own speeches and has the intelligence to do so, and I for one would give him props if he did.
