I’m seeing analysis that said Obama seemed afraid last night and I’m not seeing that at all. He seemed resolute.
He was delivering a 2020 version of FDR’s “day of infamy” speech after the Pearl Harbor attack. Like FDR, Obama was warning that the US faces a mortal enemy.
Obama was also reminding us that people like John Lewis faced worse than today, and triumphed.
I was afraid going in and am resolute since.
