    Folks give credit where credit is due it was an excellent speech by Enda. Anyone that says different is hiding behind a poster.

    Things are quietening down, the thread is returning to relative sanity, the mass hysteria has passed without any reports of miracles attributable to St. Enda. Good old P.ie cynicism reigns again and it suddenly looks most attractive.

While I don't feel comfortable defending Kenny, he certainly did fine.

    The speech was ok but the only way I can describe it is Enda lost the run of himself and even Obama seemed to convey this with his stifled laughs- but still he was a million times better than Cowen would have been.

    ah no - i'm not a Shunnser - typical or untypical
    i'm not a member of any political party.

    i don't know whether or not you're a 'typical' or 'untypical' Blueshirt
    you just sound like a Gorm Dearg guy.
    & i'm happy that i made you laugh.
    Read your posts. Your political leanings are obvious. The Blueshirts went out of existence around 1936. Even the BROY HARRIERS are gone. You are living in a historical time warp like the FF and Shinner posters here.
    This is 2011.

    I am one of those being driven away. There are far too many posters or trolls who don't seem to be able to abandon teenage levels of thinking about Irish Politics. A sad reflection on why we are where we are now.
    Far too easy to emigrate or post gibberish in the so-called protection of anonymity.

    I was shocked as Kenny was so upbeat and outspoken. He spoke really well.

    I have to say he did a great job. I wouldn't be a FG supporter but I always felt that given the chance Kenny would have potential to be good but at the same time if you really want to judge him come back to this issue in two or three years time. Remember at one stage Bertie was one of our most popular Taoiseachs.

    BOO HOO !!!
    looks like i hit a raw nerve
    i had thought you were a proud Blueshirt guy
    & that you would have loved the historical comparison of Kenny with a proud Blueshirt guy of an earlier generation
    & his gallant band
    who fought with such distinction for freedom, with ol Franco in Spain.

    i didn't realise that you hate to remember those heroes of yesteryear
    my oh my
