Can this guy Payack possibly be right? Is an America that has been informed so long by the right wing media now so totally stupid that Obama's speech was too professorial, too blunt for them? I'd hate to think that. I'm more inclined to believe that this guy is a pompous jerk. If you saw the speech -- a nice, tight 18 minute talk -- Obama defined the problem frankly, laid out what has been done and what needs to be done, and assured us that we will conquer this problem just as we've conquered other problems. What was Obama supposed to do? Talk down to us? Put a little cowboy swagger into it? Get Jeff Foxworthy to write his speech for him? Shame on you, CNN, for wasting the electricity and pixels to suggest that politicians should dumb down their language for us poor, stupid citizens.
