No weird pupil dilation like W used to do when he got to the subject of terrists. Basically he has good TV skills and wore a nice suit, and didn't change much from Obama policy, so it's a low pass.

Basically the gist of it was, "I talk a lot of shit but when after 8 months I finally concentrated on the issue I realized Obama had it right." That's about as good an outcome as can be expected under the circumstances. I'm hoping he sticks to that script for the next 3 years.
