Imagination not captured
No you clueless fool it did not "capture our imagination". It enraged people. We wanted bloody revenge and death. We did not sit in wonderment about the implications for free speech. OK, maybe the Ivy Leaguers did. That is, after all, what they do.
God this is maddening. The man is so arrogant and ignorant at the same time it's hard to stomach.
Just go away. Just hole yourself up with your staff and at least pretend to work on important things like the economy, the disaster in the gulf and such.
