Oh, my. Where to begin, on an examination of Obama’s speech to the Middle East? I’m certainly not going to hit you with all 6000 words.  I can’t even jump on everything in the speech that should be jumped on. An intensive response would take a week to formulate and still not cover ten percent of the […]
