so -- the speech

Yes, I watched it. 

It was actually a decent speech.  Lots of platitudes about bipartisan support for Israel, and the support Israel has received from the Obama administration.  Biblical references to Esther and Moses -- not unexpected.  Holocaust references, the "never again" rhetoric  -- also not unexpected, nice touch to have Elie Wiesel in the audience.

He made his case forcefully but respectfully.

How much nicer would it have been had protocols been followed.

I am not convinced he's right, I am not convinced he's wrong. 

I think the deal happens regardless of this speech.

And he didn't offer an alternative.
