One Last Loose End

We owe it to ourselves to know what we are talking about.  This is the link to the full transcript of Senator Obama’s speech:  Barack Obama’s Speech on Race – New York Times

In part, this explains why I have to vote for him.  When you hear or read a speech like this, you realize that this man has a deep understanding of our nation’s problems, and you know that it is not a simplistic one.  I don’t believe that you can solve or even develop the approach to a problem without that understanding.  I am tired of stupid politicians.    Just short of stupidity is the politician who doesn’t act on what s/he knows because s/he has no faith that things can change.

  1. This was an amazing speech, and – like you pointed out – something that needs to be said.

  2. I’m standing in my kitchen clapping, cheering and praying for Barack Obama, who I believe to be the next president of the United States of America.

  3. GOBAMA! Remember ‘who’ was all O-crazy at Xmas?
