You can read the text of the President's speech at this link.
He defended his record and outlined a path for the future and got down right feisty saying:
Now, our friends at the Republican convention were more than happy to talk about everything they think is wrong with America, but they didn’t have much to say about how they’d make it right. They want your vote, but they don’t want you to know their plan. And that’s because all they have to offer is the same prescription they’ve had for the last thirty years:
“Have a surplus? Try a tax cut.”
“Deficit too high? Try another.”
“Feel a cold coming on? Take two tax cuts, roll back some regulations, and call us in the morning!”
He ended the Iraq war and will end the Afghanistan war and unlike Romney he payed tribute to our troops and veterans.
He blasts the Republicans on foreign policy:
"You might not be ready for diplomacy with Beijing if you can’t visit the Olympics without insulting our closest ally. "
The President didn't say it but how can you expect Mitt Romney to stand up to the Iranians when he won't even stand up to Rush Limbaugh after he insults a young woman.
