Though I'm not a conservative, this year I have very much enjoyed listening to conservative talk radio, especially Fox News. In previous years I would not touch it. My side, this year (I switch sides every few years), does not have anything interesting to say. Well, at least not what I am interested in.
This is an interesting and refreshing subtext in Obama's entire speech -- he says things are "facts" and not opinions. Considering the lunacy that passes for "political debate" on American television screens -- where there are always two points of view, and every "fact" is subject to spin from one side or another -- it is a breath of fresh air.
