The End

( – promoted by buhdydharma )

In the end, if the people cannot trust their government to do the job for which it exists – to protect them and to promote their common welfare – all else is lost.

Barack Obama, University of Nairobi, August 28, 2006

    he wasn’t speaking to an American audience…  

  1. Interesting to read his speeches from the other side of the election. my favorite part….

    ‘But elections are not enough. In a true democracy, it is what happens between elections that is the true measure of how a government treats its people.’

    On the other hand I read the seeds of his policy/agenda both foreign and domestic here, as he does his own version of pumping globalism, neoliberal, and he defines progress in corporate market’s. Raising boat’s that are not seaworthy by design.

    The change in rhetoric and style is interesting to watch also. More lectures and arrogance now in his talks, more doublespeak. Lately I can’t listen to his speech’s they just piss me off. The one he delivered when he received the Nobel Peace Prize severed any credibility good will for the man or his agenda that I had. Perhap’s the bots are right maybe I never listened to what he was really saying. Actually I don’t believe this either it is a case of bait and switch with the fine print buried in the lofty rhetoric.        

  2. Fierce advocate meaning you’ll fight for the other side, until they win — and then claim credit.
