Republicans, You Got Served
Obama responds to the negative with a brilliant speech. Here is the passion, the clarity and the message of unity that the Republicans can't grasp or even understand.
This was in Richmond, Virginia October 22, the former capital of the Confederate States of America. Over 140 years after the end of slavery we are on the verge of having an African American president. One who inspires hope to a nation beat down by the politics of cynicsm and division. The Republicans are bereft of ideas and have no response, they continue to resort to personal attacks unable to even envision a counter message.
Goodness, even an old crumudgeon like me believes. I haven't had such a sense of hope since the early Seventies.
