Spengler: A Most Inspiring Speech

As regular COTTonLINE readers know, we often enjoy the commentary of David P. Goldman, whose nom de plume is Spengler. See his opinion of the President's speech in Poland.
President Trump's speech yesterday in Warsaw was better than inspiring. It was calculating and subtle, and sent strong messages to both our friends and adversaries.

It was a brilliantly crafted speech, the slickest as well as the most inspiring foreign policy address of any American president since Ronald Reagan.
High praise, indeed. Even though the foreign policy bar has been set fairly low during the last four presidencies.

Clinton was a good speaker but cared and spoke little about foreign affairs, neither Bush was memorable, and Obama was stylistically adequate but said hateful, anti-American things.
