I believe we are on an irreversible trend toward more freedom and democracy — but that could change.

Obama: Throw momma from the train

The media is abuzz. Mr. Obama is making a major speech about the race in America. But is it?

What does race has to do with the crazy and hate filled mutterings of Mr. Jeremiah Wright? Nothing at all. The issue at hand is Mr. Obama's failure of leadership when he remained silent in the face of barrage of hate mongering oozing off the stage of his Church of twenty years.

Mr. Obama's speech should be studied in high schools and colleges: we have not witnessed such skillful use of just about any logical and moral fallacy.

NYT in the meanwhile, predictably singing some very uncommon praises:

"Inaugural addresses by Abraham Lincoln and Franklin D. Roosevelt come to mind, as does John F. Kennedy’s 1960 speech on religion, with its enduring vision of the separation between church and state. Senator Barack Obama, who has not faced such tests of character this year, faced one on Tuesday. It is hard to imagine how he could have handled it better.

Mr. Obama’s eloquent speech should end the debate over his ties to Mr. Wright ..."
Oh really?!!

Particularly disgusting was Mr. Obama mention of his supposedly racist grandmother. He actually sacrificed her for the sake of his unbounded ambition.

Again, it's not about race. It's not about black or white. It's about failing to do what's right. A failure of judgment, failure of leadership, betrayal of public trust.

Just words, Mr. Obama? Just words?

Silicone Valley, United States
I am a cantankerous man living and working in the Silicon Valley where reading books is an abomination that is virtually unheard of, frowned upon and may be detrimental to one's career. I avoid censure by never conceding that I ever read or owned a book in my life. If anyone accidentally glimpses my scant proficiency in any subject matter, I immediately accredit it to having glanced at DrudgeReport that day.
