Please allow me to summarize.

1) Everything is broken.
2) It's not my fault.
3) It's going to get better.
4) But I can't explain how.
5) Other than to introduce these new programs.
6) Which are unfunded.
7) And undefined.
8) But poll well.
9) Ends by blaming obstructionists in other party who have only their own interests at heart, implying that only his party can save us all from ourselves.

Did I miss anything?

Richard, please allow me to translate what you've just said:
