Once, many years ago, my brother Steve and I had a small disagreement and today I have no idea what it was about. But his daughter Lyndsay was in the living room and heard it all, and at the end she said, 'Uncle Dan, you are a good speecher!"
Well, I don't know about that but President Barak Obamas is a damn good 'speecher,' as we found out again in his last State of the Union speech before Congress. Everyone in the House was well-behaved and made no rude comments afterwords. The GOP knows they don't have an orator in their midst who can write and speak with such passion and discernment.
What the GOP wants is to fight, not in the sense of a genuine struggle but rather by unloosing an avalanche of invective aimed at the passion of the president and the ideas he so eloquently lays out. Surely they must know that its too late and they will have to live with his accomplishments staring them in the face.
And today Lyndsay is married, living in Utah, with some beautiful children. Now she is the good speecher too.
