Color me unimpressed.
And really - I was surprisingly unimpressed with the whole thing. Just saying, "I'm going to keep us on offense" doesn't tell me much. Except for the specifics of "keeping the Patriot Act" and electronic surveillance of terrorist planks - this speech as a whole is pretty vapid. I mean we're talking Barack Obama territory. From the time he starts on marriage to guns to abortion to the "we need to be a big tent" party... it is VOID of substance.
I'm not sure he knows what a true "strict constructionist" judge is either. He kept repeating that when it came to guns and abortion - that's the kind of judge he'd look for. His record seems to show that he wouldn't know what one looked like if it him between the eyes.
And evidently the voters in Iowa and New Hampshire are losing interest...
