and is he selling the change America is looking for?
The CodePink demonstrator didn’t think so but last I checked, CodePink is on the FAR left edge of the bell curve.
To Obama & his supporters:
There is more that unites us than divides us. … We are Americans and that is an association that means more to me than any other.
When we tell you we are going to change Washington and stop leaving the problems for some unluckier generation, we will keep that promise.
I don’t work for a party, I don’t work for a special interest, I don’t work for myself; I work for you.
I fought the big-spenders in both parties and the first big spending, pork-barrel bill that comes across my desk – I will veto it and you will know their names.
In the end, it matters less that you can fight. What matters most is that you are fighting for the right things.
My opponent wants to bring back the jobs of the past. We’re going to help workers who’ve lost a job that won’t come back find a job that won’t go away.
Education is the civil rights issue of this century. … what is the value of access to a failed school? We need to shake up the bureaucracy with competition; empower parents with choice; remove barriers for qualified teachers and help bad teachers find another line of work. When a school fails to meets its obligations, parents deserve a choice and I intend to give it to them.
Bold, bold, Sen. McCain. If you can deliver on that, you will change the future of this nation for the better.
We are going to stop sending billions of dollars to countries that don’t like us very much. We’ll drill new wells offshore and we’ll drill them now! (+ nuclear, solar, wind, flex-fuel and more…) We must use all resources and use all technologies to rescue our economy from the damage caused by high oil prices. It’s an ambitions plan but Americans are ambitious by nature. It’s time to show the world how Americans lead.
We face many dangerous threats in this dangerous world but I’m not afraid of them; I’m prepared for them. … I know how the military works. … I know how the world works. … I know how to secure the peace.
I’ve been an imperfect servant of my country for many years – but I’ve been her servant first, last and always – and I’ve never lived a day in good times or bad that I didn’t thank God for the privilege.
I fell in love with my country when I was a prisoner in someone else’s…. My country saved me and I cannot forget it and I will fight for her as long as I draw breath – so help me God.
Nothing brings greater happiness in life than to serve a cause greater than yourself.
McCain issued a resonating – truly hopeful call to fight for and serve our country. I couldn’t help but think that McCain sounded like he was talking to adults — partners in this mission of service he was talking about. When I was listening to Obama, it sounded like he was talking to broken, fearful children who needed his care, protection, and provision.
What do you think? McCain sounds like my next President.
