What struck me was the lecturing he did in the speech relative to divisiveness and then passive/aggressively scolded anyone who disagrees with him in a divisive manner. Did he not see how divisive, as opposed to being inclusive, he was?
The tone could have been a lot more along the lines of "I understand your fears", "I appreciate your right to disagree"...etc.
I don't ever remember Bush talking down to people. He always took the stance that he was the president of all of the people, those that agreed and disagreed with him.
