obama’s speech

Russell Korobkin details some praise for obama’s speech tonight which I generally agree with and then notes two weaknesses of which this is the 2nd:

Failing to attack the Bush administration for trampling the Constitution, trashing privacy rights, and mistreating prisoners of war.

Perhaps obama, as candidate for commander-in-chief, did not make this attack because he does not have a problem with at least the first two items on this list.

Or perhaps he fears the loss of too many votes from the Brooks and Dunn crowd, you know, the republicans.
