Offhand, does anyone know if Chimp's speech last night helped him in polls
I'm just wondering. We probably have to wait a couple of days to see if he got a bounce.

1. I am going with "nope" because of the media whorse's interpretation
The kindest one - "he is using Kerry's plan from last year."
We know by now that people wait for the Teevee to tell them what to think - and by en large, the Teevee said it was crap

3. No significant poll
would be complete at this point. Of interest is to try to think of how it played to each of the three groups of voters: those who support bush; those who will vote against him; and the undecided. While the speech was originally supposed to reach out to all three groups, by yesterday afternoon it was much less ambitious. It was no longer the president's electrifying war speech. It became a frank talk to "wobbly" republicans. It seems to have gotten bad reviews from even those republicans. As a democrat, I felt it was funnier than most of the things Saturday Night Live could come up with.

4. Thanks
we were dealing with storms and the basement so I did not hear it. It is good to know how someone outside the media felt about it.

6. As a patriotic American
who always wants what is best for this country, and who respects and has many republican friends and relatives, I must be frank: it was the single weakest speech that any president has given since at least 1932. I challenge anyone to find a less inspired, weaker "war time" speech. There are times when I feel conflicted -- because I SO WANT bush to lose -- but to see that sad a speech by what is supposed to be an American president hurt. I found myself thinking that all that I love about this country is at stake come November. I dug out my copy of the book "Lyndon," by Harwood and Johnson, and opened it to page 135: there, in front of me was a photo of the actual teletype of the speech LBJ gave when he withdrew in 1968. I wish some patriotic republican would slip it in bush's next speech.

8. I read today it didn't help

Can't find a link but fresno bee paper reported numbers are down, people think he is doing a bad job, think we should get out but we won't turn Iraq over in time.

And I also look to the fact that neither ABC, CBS, or NBC broadcast the speech (even though they were running reruns) as an indicator his popularity is DOWN.
