Obama speech in South Carolina.

Son,

I was able to capture some of Obama’s words. There is no way I could capture the power. Mr. Obama has the oratory skills of Abraham Lincoln. The depth of his intellect is inspiring – This man is the real deal.

Here is some of what he said:

“Where we are met with cynicism and doubt and fear and those who tell us we can’t … we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of the American people in three simple words — yes we can!”

The election is “…not between regions or religions or genders” is not between “rich vs. poor, young vs. old … and it is not about black vs. white.

“This election is about the past vs. the future. … It’s about whether we settle for the same divisions and distractions and drama that passes for politics today or whether we reach for a politics of common sense and innovation — the politics of shared sacrifice and shared prosperity.”

Whooeee. Look out America. Mr. Obama is on his way.

Dad

  1. That will be a speech in textbooks of the period. Brilliant, nuanced (and old word that killed Kerry) and filled with nice gentle corrections for those who need correcting…Republicans, Clintons, others.
    If this is not Robert Kennedy in beige I’ll eat my hat. I don’t weat hats often, however.

    Ted Sorenson is the mentor of the young speechwriter who catches Obama, Kennedy, and King in the syncopation. Bravo. Capeau. Etcetera

  2. Just wanted to say that I am working at a big biotherapeutic company in Clayton NC and I support Barack Obama with all my heart. I encourage all my friends and colleagues to vote for Obama in 2012!! I LOVE YOU OBAMA
