  1. Oh god… I only read the speech this morning. Just watched it.

    I’m just not going to say anything out of fear of someone calling me a cultist.

  2. Dynamic says:

    When I was younger, I always wanted to run for president. I had some good ideas (I thought) about how to do it differently from everyone else.

    As I got older, some of those ideas changed to reflect changing beliefs, but the notion that there had to be a different way to get elected – and to govern – remained.

    I can happily say now that I’ll never have to try any of them out, because Obama is already doing it better.

  3. It’s, and I’m trying not to turn into Chris Matthews here or Sully, but it’s astonishing, and refreshing that here’s a candidate actually talking to us like adults, with the promise that when he’s president, he’ll continue to talk to us like adults and not search for the perfect soundbite.

    The only flaw here is that the political media is not geared for this and too many people already are earning their daily bread on trying to translate and tell people what he meant or what he said.

    This was a grown up conversation, and the little kids over on the right side of things are trying to turn it back into a school yard event with the denizens of No Quarter and the ilk chipping in.

    God.

    A president who treats us like adults and uses whole paragraphs and such to express himself.

    That alone is worth the price of admission
