String of Pearls
Three and one half years from now the centrist Obama supporters of pragmatic fame will still be saying, “Well give Obama a chance man, he just got started!”
Meanwhile, in Pakistan people are saying they don’t mind being blown to smithereens, their body parts scattered to the four corners of the world, because Obama is such a cool dude. And to show just how cool Obama is we were graced with this quote today (Obama speaking to the French).
“America is changing, but it cannot be America alone that changes.”
This is not one of the greatest quotes I have read. In fact, if I were Obama I would hire a better speech writer, seriously. However it does achieve its purpose being at once pompous, grand sounding, and absolutely without meaning of any kind. Obama could have said something like, “Let it never be said that it was never said” and I’m sure the NYT would have quoted that as well. Another pearl dropped from the heavenly lips of Obama.
I also find Obama’s quote ironic considering that the worldwide economic crash was caused by America’s banking practices which did indeed change things here and abroad. Never-the-less it is imperative that it is the U.S., having caused the problem, should, with Obama presiding naturally, lead the world to a true and blessed salvation.
