This is my redline. The intensity African-Americans like and care about barack obama Exceeds the following Sanders and the progressive left has for him.

 

for the polticans who passively aggressively bashed the man OR resented HIS MOVEMENT or HIS success….. read this statement. He’s more than willing to have this discussion about his accomplishments vs empty repetitive rhetoric.

This is your Thursday thread. My apologies for a few f bombs in advance.

Ten Years Ago: Barack Obama – “I want us to take up the unfinished business of perfecting our union, and building a better America.”

On February 10, 2007, United States Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) announced his candidacy for president of the United States. On a cold day in Springfield IL, near the statehouse that he and Abraham Lincoln both served in, he addressed the gathered crowd.

Barack Obama:

This campaign can’t only be about me. It must be about us – it must be about what we can do together. This campaign must be the occasion, the vehicle, of your hopes, and your dreams. It will take your time, your energy, and your advice – to push us forward when we’re doing right, and to let us know when we’re not. This campaign has to be about reclaiming the meaning of citizenship, restoring our sense of common purpose, and realizing that few obstacles can withstand the power of millions of voices calling for change.

By ourselves, this change will not happen. Divided, we are bound to fail. […]

I’m in this race [not] just to hold an office, but to gather with you to transform a nation.

I want to win that next battle – for justice and opportunity.

I want to win that next battle – for better schools, and better jobs, and health care for all.

I want us to take up the unfinished business of perfecting our union, and building a better America.
