    ignore the 40 minutes of pseudo-progressive puffery.  ONLY pay attention to the 22 seconds of hardline corporatist agenda items, as that's the only part of the speech that will become anything more than hot air.  Keep in mind that if you actually pay attention to the 40 minutes of smoke being blown up your ass, in a year or so the "pragmatic" power centrists will circle you demouncing you for "hearing what you wanted to hear" and "not paying attention to Obama's speech">  The real message from our power centrists, and it can be taken  to heart and followed as an ironclad rule:  the only words of Obama's that you should ever pay any attention to are the hardest corporate line.  Everything else is you only "hearing what you want to hear" and it's entirely your own fault, and has nothing to do with the fact that Obama's speechwriters have made 98% of the speech that kind of bullshit one must ignore if one is to "listen" the way our power centrists require.
