Well, at least somebody liked the speech.

In other ISIS-related news, none of it good. . .

The president is at MacDill Air Force base in Tampa today to discuss ISIS strategy:

The editors of the New York Times seemed shocked that something the president said isn’t really what the administration means:

A good question: why can’t the U.K. or America locate these guys?

Why can't British intelligence services locate Islamic State hostages? The latest in our Big Question series: http://t.co/BAAMLrVTr2
