Today, Barack Obama walked up to the podium in Philadelphia, PA, and he looked the American people in their eyes, straight on, unashamed, and undeterred, and gave the speech of his life, the best unifying and hope-giving speech I’ve heard in my lifetime. He rebuffed the critics on the Rev. Wright’s speech, and he confronted racism, gender, hatred, and unsavory religion rhetoric in America.
The speech was direct, the message was powerful, and his honesty is lucid. I especially like how he directly responded to the critics in regard to Rev. Wright when he said; “I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can disown my own white grandmother.” Brilliant!
This time it is clear, Obama is the perfect choice for the next President of the United States. So all you great Philadelphians, when you go to the polls on April 22nd, don’t make the same mistake the Ohioans made on March 4th, this time all you confused democrats, republicans, and undecided independents, make sure to vote Obama and let’s wrap this thing up, quick. Barack is the clear unifier of our country.
This is a true history in the making. So, make it count!
