Barack on Patriotism

I TOOK a break from election coverage because silly season is in full throttle. I told myself I wouldn't write another political entry until Barack gave another great speech on another major issue in American society.

In 28 minutes and 22 seconds, Barack addresses patriotism like a great statesman.

And artist.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy.

I cannot believe it, Craig! I just went on to FTD to play Obama's speech and it is no longer available.
I should have listened to it yesterday but was taken away to have our pages of signed veto RealID validated by three other towns. I will try to find this ,"Barack on Patriotism" on UTUBE

Hey Craig,
I just heard his speech on Patriotism! I agree with your comments, completely.
This is why we worked for the veto RealID.

When Obama quoted Mark Twain, who said so many quotable truths, I wondered what he would pick.

Patriotism is supporting your country all of the time and your government when they deserve it
Mark Twain
