Barack Obama

Barack Obama gave one of the greatest speeches of recent years at the Democratic National Convention.

There’s not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there’s the United States of America. The pundits like to slice-and-dice our country into Red States and Blue States; Red States for Republicans, Blue States for Democrats. But I’ve got news for them, too. We worship an awesome God in the Blue States, and we don’t like federal agents poking around our libraries in the Red States. We coach Little League in the Blue States and have gay friends in the Red States.

There are patriots who opposed the war in Iraq and patriots who supported it. We are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the United States of America.

One response to “Barack Obama

  1. I've been truly enjoying the DNC so far. I got to see the first night live at the Fleet Center. That was really amazing, being there where history is being made.

    Bill Clinton's speech was great. I loved how he kept on getting the point that when ever he was needed Kerry was there to go (Send me!). I also enjoyed his point by point breakdown of where the Bush administration has failed the American people.

    Last night Obama gave a great speech as well, showing the plight of minorities in this country and the struggle they have to go through to achieve their goals. I also enjoyed Elana Wexler's speech. If that girl can speak that well in front of thousands of people, millions via television broadcasts, just imagine where she will be in another 10 years.
