I’m blogging this as I watch it.

Very nice to mix up the audience.  Changing seats changes dynamics.  Some might clap when they wouldn’t.  Others might not yell when they did last time.

“Sets our nation apart” is a tired concept.  From who?  From what?  being different doesn’t matter.  are we better?   better how?

Challenges that are decades in the making…  now that’s a concept!

Globalization… oh, wow.   folks who are now just recognizing this need to catch up!

Rules have been changed in the middle of the game… YES people.  that’s how it is.  There is no ruleset that stays the same… goodness.

Education… MATH BABY.   yeah, how many times have I heard “I don’t do math” in this country. A lot.  Learn it.  you need it.

Discourage vs. Challenge…. bingo.

Founded for the sake of an idea.  hmmm… don’t just memorize equations… what do you think of the world….  how many people watching this REALLY understand this???

Why outbuild the world?  Why?   what about doing it because it’s cool and a great strategy… we don’t need to “win the future”

Nation of Google and Facebook… oy!   that is a stretch…

I wanna see all this talk turn into action.  Sputnik moment?   R and D?   You need more than government to invest.   I just don’t see this generation of people doing R and D.  It’s a generation lacking imagination.   Facebook was not imagination.  it was a Hot or Not picture rating service.   And how has it REALLY changed things like the invention of the internet, the car, the plane, the lightbulb.  Maybe I’m romanticizing these inventions.

nearly half of jobs will require education that goes beyond high school!  yikes!

(was having a side conversation… so missed a lines)

Love focus on EDUCATION.    that’s what I care about.

goodness… border stuff.  get over it people.  yer forebears all jumped the fence.  get over it.

This is definitely a centrist speech.

I do like the Simplify Tax Code.

why promote only American jobs?  I just don’t get that.

concerns about health care law?  ya think!

Does he have this memorized!?

deficit… boring.

safe-havens.   nuclear weapons.  all this is big talk.   we’re not shaping a world that favors peace.  that makes no sense with the above sentiments about “make america the best”…. puhlease.   we defend our turf.  just own up to it.

Overall dynamic was much much better.  Far less “you lie” and standing Os.

only an hour.

good.

i’m kinda bored to be honest.

but that’s ok.

 

yer take?
