One gem which was pointed out by Article One Partners (thanks) was:

Through patent reform, we can cut the red tape that stops too many inventors and entrepreneurs from quickly turning new ideas into thriving businesses — which holds our whole economy back.

This is encouraging; well, it’s better than going unnoticed; but the truth is that national politics of full of great ideas and intentions but has a few problems in the delivery department.  (Didn’t someone once say that they road to Washington was paved with good intentions?)

It was a politician’s speech and I don’t really expect changes as a result of one sentence; but here’s the questions: How do we go about making this happen?  How do we tell Obama we appreciate the sentiment and we would like to know what he is going to do to address the issue?

Food for thought.
