President Obama’s Newtown speech–What did he actually say?
Newton, Connecticut, gun control, and President Obama’s words
President Obama spoke from Newtown, Connecticut on Sunday night, only two days after a shooter murdered 26 people, including twenty young children. Overall this was a good speech, not a great one for the ages.
After appropriately waxing poetic, it was time to get straight to the point. He set it up well. Either he would offer specifics, or rely on the platitudes that frustrate supporters and critics alike. What would he do? What is the change?
For his fiercest critics, he did “it” again.
