Here’s an excerpt from Obama’s Memorial Day address given in New Mexico:

On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the audience here today — our sense of patriotism is particularly strong. (Emphasis Added)

Powerline’s John Hinderaker has the details and, in answer to the obvious question, the aformentioned quote was the high mark of the speech. It pretty much degenerated into indecipherable sound bytes from there.

So much for Obama’s “soaring, hopeful” rhetoric.
