As For the Substance…

While it was beautifully and powerfully delivered, this is an enormous gust of gassy nonsense:

The journey will be difficult. The road will be long. I face this challenge with profound humility, and knowledge of my own limitations. But I also face it with limitless faith in the capacity of the American people. Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth. This was the moment — this was the time — when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves and our highest ideals. Thank you, God bless you, and may God bless the United States of America.

Who knew we never cared for sick people or provided good jobs to the jobless until this very moment?

Oh: One last thing: I don’t want to come together with anyone to remake this country. Improve this country? yeah. Fix some problems? Sure. But this country doesn’t need “remaking.”
