I thought his "We've come too far to turn back now." line wasn't quite as passionate or motivational as the "Yes, we can." of his campaign in '08, but I like the underlying message.

I like his message about insourcing and rewarding companies who manufacture here in the US. As an environmentalist, I wasn't too keen on his push to open up 75% of the available off-shore drilling resources and found it ironic when he mentioned the BP oil spill just a few minutes later.

You can find a recap here if you didn't get to watch~

Yes. It was a brilliant speech.

I'm amused by the right calling it divisive. 'How dare he call us out on our behaviour!'

I loved POTUS speech. I loved the fact he called the GOP on crappo. Eric Cantor looked like he was sucking on a sour lemon
