    I want some of whatever your smoking. As far as politicians goes, the left and the right are two sides of the same coin.

    There are plenty of cases of racism in this world that deserve our attention, that we don't need to 'create' racial situations where none exist.

    Good stuff. Here is the full speech:
    I bolded some of it-

    After 43 primaries and caucuses, many long days and not a few long nights, I can say with confidence – and gratitude – that you have given me a great honor and solemn responsibility. And, together, we will win on November 6th!

    We launched this campaign not far from here on a beautiful June day. It has been long and extraordinarily rewarding.

    Americans have always been eternal optimists. But over the last three and a half years, we have seen hopes and dreams diminished by false promises and weak leadership. Everywhere I go, Americans are tired of being tired, and many of those who are fortunate enough to have a job are working harder for less.

    For every single mom who feels heartbroken when she has to explain to her kids that she needs to take a second job … for every grandparent who can’t afford the gas to visit his or her grandchildren … for the mom and dad who never thought they’d be on food stamps … for the small business owner desperately cutting back just to keep the doors open one more month – to all of the thousands of good and decent Americans I’ve met who want nothing more than a better chance, a fighting chance, to all of you, I have a simple message: Hold on a little longer. A better America begins tonight.



    Four years ago Barack Obama dazzled us in front of Greek columns with sweeping promises of hope and change. But after we came down to earth, after the celebration and parades, what do we have to show for three and a half years of President Obama?

    Is it easier to make ends meet? Is it easier to sell your home or buy a new one? Have you saved what you needed for retirement? Are you making more in your job? Do you have a better chance to get a better job? Do you pay less at the pump?

    If the answer were “yes” to those questions, then President Obama would be running for re-election based on his achievements…and rightly so. But because he has failed, he will run a campaign of diversions, distractions, and distortions. That kind of campaign may have worked at another place and in a different time. But not here and not now. It’s still about the economy …and we’re not stupid.



    I see an America with a growing middle class, with rising standards of living. I see children even more successful than their parents - some successful even beyond their wildest dreams – and others congratulating them for their achievement, not attacking them for it.

    This America is fundamentally fair. We will stop the unfairness of urban children being denied access to the good schools of their choice; the unfairness of politicians giving taxpayer money to their friends’ businesses; the unfairness of requiring union workers to contribute to politicians not of their choosing; the unfairness of government workers getting better pay and benefits than the taxpayers they serve; and we will stop the unfairness of one generation passing larger and larger debts on to the next.

    In the America I see, character and choices matter.
    And education, hard work, and living within our means are valued and rewarded. And poverty will be defeated, not with a government check, but with respect and achievement that is taught by parents, learned in school, and practiced in the workplace.

    This is the America that was won for us by the nation’s Founders, and earned for us by the Greatest Generation. It is the America that has produced the most innovative, most productive, and most powerful economy in the world, with one of the highest standards of living of any major nation. …

    No, not even that! They encourage success. . .but do not believe that, if one has $1 million a year, it would not hurt them to slow the growth of their wealth in order to help slow the growth of the deficit, or in order to avoid cutting down the lifeline of those who are living on minimum wage!

    The whole difference is on how one defines achievement and on one's priority: one is on human achievements, the other is on monetary achievements

    Yeah, like when Romney saved the Olympics and took that huge payout? Oh wait, he donated all the money he received, so I guess that isn't a good example. Or like his family with five children he and his wife raised. Oh wait, no monetary achievement there.

    Guess your theory is (*)(*)(*)(*).

    A couple of other politico heads as well as myself thought that Romney looked Reaganesque tonight. Great speech and full of upbeat optimism; the direct opposite of that dour bobo and his plan to accentuate the negative by playing class warfare. Its all over folks,; this looks comparable to the Reagan-Carter matchup where Reagan wins in a landslide. I don't see how bobo can possibly win this thing being negative and all, and sitting at the helm while our economy goes into the abyss.
    If you want to anger a liberal, tell him the truth.
    If you want to anger a Conservative, tell him a lie.
