    Obamarama

    What can I say that isn’t coursing through the blogsphere right now? Barak Obama will be President of the US some day. He is dynamic and one of the most amazing political speakers I have seen in a while. He mixed specific political positions with personalized stories of real American people. His speech will go on my “frequently watched list” and I’ll probably burn it onto DVD to watch anytime I get jaded with politics. Watch this man - he will do great things.

    1. I don’t know a thing about this man except what the DNC wants us to know about him. I will not judge his character because I have never spent time with him, but since he has been thrust upon us as the possible first African American President and we are all suppose to adore him I want him to answer some tough questions.

      1. If he is a man of Faith…what are his beliefs?
      2. Is he against abortion or for it?
      3. Does he support defending our nation from all enemies?
      4. Will he stand for what’s right or wilt under United Nations pressure?

    2. I don’t know what faith has to do with Mr. Obama being fit to be president. I would think after Bush, the last thing we need is a president who wears his religion on his sleeve. What about separation of church and state?
      Why do people continue to use abortion and religion as wedges in elections?

    5. I can’t stop thinking about his speech at the DNC. I too felt like I was watching history in the making and also felt that he would someday be the 1st AA president, before the comentator’s remark. I hope that Kerry’s people have already contacted him about being a cabinet member. Any idea how I can purchase that speech, unfortunately I didn’t record it??

    6. You can find the videos at CSPAN.org and the audio at Apple’s Web site for iTunes or the iTunes Music Service both for free.
