We usually take the time to point out that good-sounding speeches are not as important as the policy actions that follow, but we’ve got to say that the President’s post-Orlando speech in response to Trump’s bluster was pretty unassailable. POTUS’s forceful reiteration of his refusal to say the U.S. is at war with “Radical Islam” matters, especially when others are not holding the rhetoric line as strong. We definitely take issue with some of the policies in Obama’s speech; linking the Orlando shooting to ISIL recruiting in the U.S. is tenuous at best. But Trump has been winning on style over substance for a year now, so to see the President go in for the win in the style department is an overdue relief. And maybe, just maybe, the polls will start to reflect the hollowness and bigotry that Trump has made a prominent feature of his campaign.
