Skip to comments."His Gettyburg address": Obama Biographer Maraniss on Newtown Speech
Posted on 12/16/2012 7:33:18 PM PST by kristinn
There were so many levels to President Obama's speech: philosophical, sorrowful determined universal, simple, beautiful...
People will long remember what Barack Obama said in Newtown...his Gettysburg address...
Probably more accurate to call him Barry’s hagiographer.
I did not listen to obumbler’s remarks tonight, but I suspect that the ony thing it will ever have in common with the Gettysburg Adress is that generations of school kids will be required to memorize it.
No references to “typical white people” (like his grandmother) or talk of “punishing his enemies” or “getting revenge”? A new, kinder and gentler Hussein? Really?
An impingement in Sunday Night Football is unforgivable.
Did he wipe away a non-existent tear this time?
Did Lincoln have a teleprompter?
I guess that means there is a great civil war going on. To determine whether or not this country can survive.
I am not sure how it turns out this time.
Gun control is not slavery.
Hey Moron-iss, wipe your chin...you didn’t swallow everything.
0bama’s speech was the usual politi-sermon, done in true narcissistic fashion; Hitler without the mustache.
Good grief,this guy needs to wipe his chin.
No reference to the attrocities commited by his cousin Odinga in Kenya ?
No. It was his self righteous, “I DARE you to oppose me” look.
Gee, I remember when they said the exact same thing about Hussein’s speech throwing Rev. Wright under the bus. So much facile eloquence!
But guns are our ruby slippers.
0bama might as well say, “These things must be done delicately.”
So now it’s Abe the Kenyan I guess
GMTA—posted 33 seconds apart.
Gettysburg? No. Marc Antony, “Julius Caesar.” Act II, Sc. iii, IIRC.
This is 0bama’s “Bitter Clinger” sentence made into an entire speech.
