If you’d like a little more detail, see PJTV‘s account of the speech. If you’d like the time-limited, vermouth-limited overserved kinetic martini-action version, see VodkaPundit’s drunkblog account.
And if you’d like to see how this speech SHOULD have been done, see Reagan.
UPDATE: More on Obama’s War from James Board, and a great post at RedState which includes some of the top Twitter reactions.
