What an eloquent speech that simply did not address the two major concerns: 1) Senator Obama's poor judgement, and 2) Senator Obama's cluelessness.
On the first point, why did Senator Obama fail to address his close friend and mentor, Rev. Wright, about the hateful and factually incorrect statements that he has made publicly including the ability to buy the "greatest hits" from the church on its website? Was he afraid, or did he just not care until it was a political liability not to? Is this the type of judgement we want in a President? I should hope not!
On the second point, if he was clueless about the depth of Wright's animosity to America and to facts, is that the type of out touch man we want as President? Once again, I hope not.
On a final note, the same big government "solutions" that have generated most of the problems to which he refers (think Detroit) are not what the country needs. Senator, that isn't change, that is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result - that is the definition of insanity.
