Yesterday, after Michelle Obama delivered an address highlighting the “improbable journey that’s brought us to this moment,” Fox News’s Juan Williams teared up as he talked about her speech, stating, “I’m just thrilled. I mean, it’s almost emotional. … We’ve never seen anything like that”:

As a human being, as an African-American, it’s unbelievable. And then to have a family situation, given all the tension in Black America over families, and to see that positive image there for everybody to see. … Man, that’s just awesome.

Watch it:

Former Bush adviser Karl Rove, however, had an entirely different reaction to the speech, claiming Michelle Obama could have done better “on saying I love America.” (HT: Andrew Sullivan)
