The Preznit's Speech

Damn. More later, but, Damn. Will Smith crossed with Michael Douglas in the White House. "I make this look good" meets "Hell yes, I'm a member of the ACLU, Bob, and what I want to know is why aren't you?"

When's the last time a President challenged every one of us to do something? "Every adult American to get one year of education beyond high school." Each and every one of us. Damn. I almost dashed down to San Diego State and signed up right then and there, and I'm 67 and already have accumulated a couple years past high school.


  1. Don't you get free tuition then?
    I think if we had all been asked to sacrifice and/or DO something after 9/11, our country would be alot better off today.

  2. I definitely agree with Barbara re what should have happened after 9/11. And yes, Jayhawk - it was a great speech!

    Because I don't like a lot of what the ACLU does, that's why.

    And yes, we should have been challenged back then. Whenever. There's a lot of "whenevers". But Bush 43 does NOT have the gift of oratory that BHO does, and probably knows it. Or maybe he doesn't. Either way, probably doesn't care. Besides it wasn't in him to do that sort of thing anyway. Too bad. We'd been a lot better off.
