Today's link of the day comes from the Daily Beast (which I don't read because they allow Mini McCain to submit for them), via Hot Air:
If you have been paying attention to the most recent speeches from our dear Pres., you will notice his penchant for both/and language (meaning, he makes sure to legitimize each side of the debate, while retaining his annoying holier-than-thou attitude). I said it a while ago, that he doesn't have any real committments to most foreign issues. His agenda is clear- to sovietize our nation- and anything outside of that is, well, kinda boring.
Update: Parisienne Farmgirl's comment!
"Let me be clear. I understand where you are coming from. From my humble beginnings, my family, my many faiths. Mine is the American story. Yes I can.
From Obama Beach to Paris I am everywhere, I have lived every story. After turning water to wine I will present to you 600,000 jobs this summer. Let me be clear.
Now is not the time to divide ourselves further by differences in religion. Mine is a story of diversity and thriving in a challenging environment. Even though 9/11 was a trauma to our country, Yes we can. Yes I can. Yes I can close Gitmo. For ours in not a country of torture even though some would say my constant use of certain pronouns could be determined as torture. Perhaps that is the fault of those listening to certain talk show hosts, who watch certain t.v. stations. You've got to turn off Fox New. Yes you can. Yes I can.
Just like I fulfilled my promise to Michelle by taking her to Paris post election I will fulfill my promise to the American people by parting the waters of the Mississippi and clearing the way for thousands of underpriveleged to March to the land of Milk and Honey. Yes we can.
With my nomination of Judge Sodomyor we can now rest assured that a Latina woman will make decisions in a way that will spread equality and the wealth around. Yes she can.
Now is not the time for fun but I have my jet waiting for yet another trip. So much hope to spread, so little time but mine is a story of diversity and conquest.
Yes I can."
