Fort Hood

Obama’s Best Speech Ever?

In case you had forgotten, President Obama can really give a speech. Was his address at the memorial service at Fort Hood on Tuesday his best speech ever? “They’ll be teaching this one in rhetoric classes,” writes Marc Ambinder, while Taegen Goddard writes it “may go down as one of his best ever.” Chuck Todd said it will be “remembered and quoted from for quite some time.” A sample of Obama’s words: “We are a nation that endures because of the courage of those who defend it. We saw that valor in those who braved bullets here at Fort Hood, just as surely as we see it in those who signed up knowing that they would serve in harm's way.”
