Barack Obama: America's best hope

Off to chemo this morning, so this will be short and to the point.

Barack Obama’s speech at the Dem convention last night was absolutely wonderful. Obama himself was strong, passionate, poised and clearly, clearly ready to lead. Matter of fact, he’s leading already. He took on Bush, McBush, and the Republican reign. You saw it. You don’t need me to feed it back to you. If you didn’t see it, find and do so. See it. Don’t just read it.

And to David Brooks, who basically declared Obama’s speech mediocre at best, you and your kind are totally, completely out of touch and utterly delusional about your relatively rosy revisionist view of the BushCo disaster (start to finish) and the colorless old man who hopes to pick up the BushCo mantle and walk into the future, ever and always looking backwards.

Noun. Verb. POW. Blah, blah, blah.

Hope, vision, articulate outline of how to begin untangling Bush’s disastrous web of failures.

You decide.

All the best at the cemo treatment.

I read briefly some of the critiques of Obama's speech before I went and watched (and simultaneously read) Obama's speech from start to finish. It was a brilliant oratory event that will carry through time. The critics view of the speech were so revealing in their inadequacy to mirror the grandness of the occasion. I wonder whether it is because Mr. Obama has the grace and endurance of a marathon runner and not the bulk and brutality of a sprinter.
