Herewith, my comment on The New York’s Times positive editorial on Barack Obama’s speech in Philadelphia yesterday. (They said that “he raised the discussion to a higher plane”.)
“As you rightly observed of Barack Obama’s speech yesterday, “he raised the discussion to a higher plane.”
And –considering the ineptitude, duplicity, and arrogance that we have had since 2001– it is clear that Barack Obama would raise our whole nation “to a higher plane”.
As –I believe– would Hillary Clinton. Let us not argue about “how high?” –“raise” is already A LOT! Let us raise the “raise” issue at every opportunity.
A year ago when the name Barack Obama was still new, the BBC’s website posed the provocative question: “Barack Obama –is he black enough or white enough to be President?”, I responded, “He may be both.”
Now, a year later –after Barack “The Audacity of Hope” Obama’s moving declaration of independence from “The Boilerplate of Mealy-Mouthed Evasion” in Philadelphia yesterday– the nation’s hope has intensified. He gave us a powerful sense of the quality and decency that we have been denied.
Considering the toxic hell that he (or Hillary) will be put through, those of us who cringe at the very thought of “Bush-3” will also need to “intensify” our active support.
