Obama “More Perfect Union” Speech – Winner

Obama’s “More Perfect Union” speech was strong. I still think it’s best for his campaign if the discussion isn’t about race, but if it must be—and it feels like certain parties are determined that it will be, then this was a great way to handle it. Obama has a way of positioning himself above the fray. Compared to this speech, any race-related bickering, or questions about Obama’s former pastor, looks petty and meaningless. On balance, this will be good for Obama’s campaign. More importantly, it’ll be good for America. This was a discussion American needed to hear, and Obama might be the only person who could have delivered it.

    Yes, it was a gutsy speech. But, it was the speech he has been avoiding all along. He was forced into it. And, I dont find it convincing.

    Obama used an emotional device to get the listener to stop thinking. “I will not disown” This language gets us to feel an emotional bond. But, emotional bonds to people with wicked thoughts and who teach lies and falsehoods are dangerous.

    Obama ought to disown this man, not yesterday, but 20 years ago. Obama upon hearing that Klannish thinking should have run the other way.

    But, Obama held on to Wright and Trinity because they were his tie to a black community he had never been a part of. Obama, from an elite prep school in Hawaii and Harvard, was looking for street cred in the hood. He has used Wright for 20 years. And, this is just as evil as the words of Wright himself.

    Have you always instinctively run the other way from friends, colleagues, family who have come-out with invective you didn’t expect to hear? We don’t control other people.
