    How dare CNN end the President's Speech with David Gergen saying:

    "This is supposed to be a more solemn moment, instead it was more like a pep rally", referring to people applauding during his inspirational and uplifting speech in such a difficult time. Another commentator said "You can have a memorial or a pep rally but not both". How DARE they! :evil:

    Fuck that odious FOREIGN station. They never stop in their attempt to divide the nation and tear down our president. Can they go any lower? I guess so.

    The FIRST man to stand after the President's speech was the Congresswoman's husband.

    That network is sick, sick, sick.

    Didn't see it but it doesn't get anymore sick than Palin and her gunhappy cohorts making excuses now for their unfortunate references to gun violence.

    No wingnut has come forward yet to apologize for that insane campaign strategy.

    I think the point is, is that it was a little confusing to see such excited sentiment in the crowd at what is intrinsically a solemn and serious occassion, and as a reporter, to any station, it was probably hard not to comment on. People really love Obama, and the fact that he spoke, and the content of his speech, his nonverbals, his tone, and his delivery. I thought it was really cool, that he was able to turn a solemn occasion into something joyous while retaining its propriety and purpose, and I bet it even made the family feel honored that people were so excited to simply be there, for whatever reason. It's a different way of looking at a memorial, but valid. Great job by him.
