I'm saddened by the news that the dynamic duo of Hannity & Colmes are splitting up.  First Mike & Mad Dog and now this, what's next?

I thought it was an excellent speech. I liked the magnanimous tone of the speech and I don't believe he said anything out of turn.

As my sister commented to me, it was awful nice to hear a president say that Iran has a right to pursue peaceful nuclear power (not that I'm a fan of nuclear power, mind, but why shouldn't Iran have it if others do?) and that the Palestinians were entitled to their own state.  Imagine Reagan saying that!

I strongly disagree with the first point, and mildly disagree with "are entitled to" in the second.  I'm no neocon, but global politics ain't beanbag.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

Not me. There are more than a few things that Obama has done that I disagree with. However, I did like the speech yesterday. I think that the U.S. has to take a different tact with regards to its foreign policy. The threats and incendiary rhetoric espoused by prior administrations aren't going to cut it anymore.

Hey, I don't think anyone should have nuclear power; I just don't see why Iran can't when we can.

As entitled as the Israelis are, anyway.

You're not making any sense. Nobody should have nuclear power, but everybody has the right to have it and should?
