  • Populism with a Smile

    That was a better speech than I was expecting. It didn't seem frightened, or craven, or defensive, or weak...I didn't swoon like Megan (ha!). But on…

  • Seriously, Megan?!

    Wow--I'd always thought you were a steely, tough, self-reliant libertarian but...you're really a softie!!

  • The Readers Concur

    Writes my smartass buddy: "Who wrote this ending, Ron Howard?"

  • Law of Diminishing Returns...

    I'm a sucker for an Obama speech. I admitted that right off the bat. But I've gotta say, the quiet appeal for reason, bipartisanship,…

  • MIA

    Is Ambinder off drinking Wild Turkey with Joe Wilson?

  • Why Wait?

    Why wait for Congress to act on health care? He should have stopped being so self-regarding and cerebral and hands off and done what he does…

  • Retraction

    Did I miss the Joe Wilson shaming shots? I haven't seen a single one. Did he maybe just skip tonight's proceedings? Is there some kind of NASCAR…

  • Academic Squabbling

    Well, *kids* of academics quabbling--I DO think that Obama's failure to explain his policies--horrible, really bad failure, for which he has only…

  • Modesty FAIL

    Not buying the false modesty about how he didn't think his election would change everything, part the waters, etc. Coulda fooled me!

  • Oh Yeah?

    I'm the child of an academic (two, actually). I thought it was pretty good: ball's in your court, Republicans. Show us your plan.

  • Who's Hammered?

    A buddy writes: "Which college student is more drunk at this point, the one drinking on 'small businesses' or the one drinking on 'working families'?"

  • Joe Biden, Shut Your Mouth!

    Somebody tell Joe Biden that he's not at a standup comedy show. Laughing about bank bailouts, laughing about health care (did get his teeth…

  • Robin Hood

    Savvy maneuver to present college tax credit not just as a tax credit, but as one specifically funded by taking the money away from banks.

  • Obama Threatens to Veto Financial Reform

    Now there's a gambit I hadn't considered--a way for Obama to shore up his perception of weakness on Wall Street. If I heard him right, he just…

  • Barack Obama (R)

    Tax incentives, small-business veneration, glorification of the entrepreneur, chest-thumping on competition, and even a bit of nationalism. Obama…

  • Purple!

    Think Biden and Pelosi coordinated?

  • On the Bailouts

    The biggest problem this administration has faced is explaining what it's done to help the economy recover--it hasn't done much, or at least not much…

  • Body Language

    To me, Obama looked downright shaken in his post-Massachusetts interview with George Stephanopolous--the most rattled I can remember seeing him. FWIW…

  • Joe Wilson Under a Microscope

    Flipping through the cable networks, it's clear who else besides the president is going to have a lot of cameras trained on him: Joe Wilson. I'll bet…

  • What I'm Expecting Tonight

    For a couple of years now, the period leading up to big Obama speeches has had the same charged atmosphere that used to surround Mike Tyson fights,…
