The conservative commentary I’ve seen about President Obama’s speech of last night has been laudatory, and rightly so in my view. For example, Peter Wehner, who knows a thing or two about presidential speeches, writes that last night “Mr. Obama was president of all the people and spoke beautifully for them.”
Pete also makes the key point that “the president used the occasion to essentially close an ugly and unfortunate chapter of this debate.” In other words (mine not Pete’s), the hard left, having been. in effect, called out by Obama, will now have to crawl back into its hole on this issue. And conservatives, without forgetting the outrageous attacks by the left, can move on.
