Barack Obama – Stand Up for America

December 26, 2007 at 2:10 pm 6 comments

Here is an amazing excerpt from a speech by Barack Obama. He beautifully lays out why he is running for the presidency and why every American must stand up for the traditional American values of justice, equality and opportunity.

    He has had my vote from the beginning. I can hardly wait for the day we can say two words – President Obama…

    I supported Barack then went sour on him.

    I was so disappointed by the South Carolina thing but, I got over it and now, I embrace him completely.

    Just thing guys: next year at this time we will be saying: “President elect, Barack Obama!”

    And our long, national nightmare will be over.

    I liked him in the beginning but I feel he just says what he thinks people want to hear. I am throwing my support behind a Edwards/Richardson ticket.

    Ted,

    There have been many times when Barack told people what they did not want to hear, but needed to hear. He has spoken about fuel efficiency standards and energy independence to automakers in Detroit, spoken about gay issues before conservative evangelicals and teacher merit based pay raises before teacher’s unions.

    That’s not what I would call saying what people want to hear.

    He was also one of the very few who stood against the war from BEFORE the very beginning.
