US government looks for opinions on Obama speech

I knew the Public Diplomacy folks were working on something like this. Every time there is a major presidential address the U.S. embassies and consulates go on full alert to nail down reactions from their sources. So the public affairs people run around to universities and journalism contacts. The econ officers talk to economists. The military people spend some time with the local brass. Etc.

And lo and behold, the U.S. consulate in Hong Kong used an e-mail blast to hit their audience. (At least the State Department has finally given up on Wang.)

A friend in Hong Kong got the e-mail and now shares it with us all on his blog:
