Hitting The Reset Button

After listening to Obama's entire speech again and reading through the blogosphere it seems to me that a good portion of the commentariat of the same blogosphere missed the point of the speech. This speech was Obama’s way of hitting the reset button on our foreign policy as it relates to the Middle East and the rest of the world effected by our so-called Global War On Terrorism. Secretary Clinton’s forceful words on Israeli settlements and President Obama’s willingness to address Arabs and Muslims as equals is sending the right message. The stage is now set for a new beginning. Let’s see what the administration actually does. The proof will come through how foreign policy is conducted and how we spend our money. Until then all the punditry means nothing.
