8. not me, but maybe because it's a "nothing" story?

He didn't say anything that hasn't already been said a thousand times by other politicians.

Now that Jimmy Carter speech you mention, that's something else. I've gone back and read that several times and it's excellent. These throwaway words from Obama don't even deserve to be mentioned in the same thread as that speech.
