What was billed as a memorial for victims of the Arizona shooting rampage turned into a rollicking rally, leaving some conservative commentators wondering whether President Barack Obama's speech was a scripted political event. Not so, insisted the White House and host University of Arizona.
Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs said Thursday he and other aides didn't expect the president's remarks at the school's basketball arena to receive as much rousing applause as it did. Gibbs said the crowd's response, at times cheering and shouting, was understandable.

In the Wellstonian sense.
Looks like that had that slogan locked and loaded.
How incredibly stupid...to use that phrase when all trails lead to him...the left is dangerous AND stupid.God save us!
Did they win the game?

err... not getting enough rest.
“Looks like they had that slogan locked and loaded.”
Gibbs is full of it. WHy did Obama raise his voice at times? Lapse into campaign mode? He knew exactly what he was doing.
Watch Bush’s speech at Va Tech. He had the same tone throughout. Never raised his voice. Never courted any applause.
The two are night and day.
I completely agree. Obama’s inflection and cadence were intended to get applause. Everything about this guy is very scripted and planned.
Minimal input, my patootie. All that was missing was the marble columns because they blew the whole budget on the t-shirts.
It was Obama’s pep rally - - the victims were secondary.
I’d like to know what part of the school’s budget the $$ came from.
I didn’t watch obummer’s. Couldn’t bear it, as much as I tried.
At times of national anguish George Bush ALWAYS resonated. Always dignified and solemn and heartfelt; his first SOTU Address after 9/11 was the beginning of the end for me with the democratic party.

Was this little mealy-mouth punk asked about how he felt when Jan Brewer got boo-ed?
That site is scary. The logo is everywhere, but not the American flag.
