Sam Stein: ‘There Was Something Quietly Conservative’ About Obama’s Speech

‘I was struck, I have to say, by a how overt everyone was trying to reach out to Republicans last night’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
STEIN: "And now we have the president and his defining speech here. I was struck, I have to say, by a how overt everyone was trying to reach out to Republicans last night. It wasn’t just inviting Michael Bloomberg on the stage. It was Tim Kaine referencing the politics of his father-in-law. It was Obama referencing Reagan saying that’s not conservative."
BRZEZINSKI: "Absolutely."
STEIN: "And there was something quietly conservative about his speech where he said we don’t want to be ruled by one person. He can do this on our own."
