He sounded awful, which is not unusual, though I guess the speech portion was OK. The question and answer period was awful, with Bush on defense on both Iraq and the immigration bill. Though he defended the immigration bill better than the war. It's really just a sorry dance that I guess will be replayed endlessly until Bush leaves office. Unless the surge works and September brings a better outlook to the war, but I doubt that either the press or Congress would even acknowledge a successful campaign.
