Bad Reviews

Fred Kaplan of Slate lays into the speech, as does the Strib.

It wasn't a speech for the UN, it was a speech for the domestic audience. It didn't spell out a plan. It didn't offer any suggestion of what Bush might want from the UN. It seemed oddly concerned with the illegal sex trade (scroll down), but given the Bush administration's consistent blocking of funding for women's health I don't know what the hell that's about.
