Personally I thought 360 spent way too much time re-hashing. Then again this is 360 we're talking about. I wasn't too impressed.

It probably wasn't necessary to have the pundits analyze the President's speech--I think they could've let that alone for one night--the people at the memorial didn't seem to take issue with the setting or the speech, but leave it to pundits to always look for a problem when there isn't one--Gergen and Gerson were especially out of line, but we didn't need to hear from any of them, IMO. Great news about Rep. Gifford opening her eyes and appearing to respond to her husband and colleagues--hopefully she will continue to improve. Anderson's interviews with the Reed and Greene families were very moving--it's wonderful to know that the NYFD will be sending a 9/11 flag to Christina Greene's funeral--she was quite a remarkable child.

I too was not impressed with 360's over analytical approach to what President Obama said or didn't say.
I think the POTUS set exactly the right tone and gave us all comfort.
His delivery excelled and Cornell Belcher was right, he was just like he was during the campaign, only with more empathy. Personally, I found his speech captivating, and if it took this horrific tragedy to get the President's mojo back, so be it.
Sarah Palin should be ashamed of herself for not being accountable for her own actions. She has not only proven, by her latest statement, that she is unfit to lead, she's also incapable of accepting responsiblity with all of her venomous accusations and remarks towards this administration.
If any finger pointing is to be done, it should be in HER direction, with every finger on every hand in the United States.
(Gee, I hope that wasn't too harsh.)

It's called "covering the event", not "re-hashing".

I could'nt agree with Judy more,the President's speech was very apt and had the right tone. Also Sarah Palin really should be held responsible for her actions and so should be Glenn Beck, Limbaugh and others of his kind...

@anonymous 9:30am, it was re-hashing. All they did was discuss what everyone just saw an hour ago before 360 came on.

Every speech the President gives is covered (and yes, rehashed) after it is delivered. It was what I expected. Quite frankly, I don't care what any of those guys said, I'm just glad they said it long enough to get Dana Loesch bumped from the show. There was no place for her in that night.

Great news about Giffords. I was glad we got more information about that, and, of course, the very moving interview with Christina Green's parents. They are incredibly strong.

@Judy, you're exactly right about the President's speech and Sarah Palin. Some of the pundits have been letting her off too easy for whatever reason.
