As one might tell from my posts today, I was impressed with Obama’s political courage today. He refused to REJECT OR REPUDIATE Rev. Wright, but rather testified to his being “like family”. This upsets some Democrats who don’t understand church. If I had (which I did) any misgivings about Obama’s integrity (even casino empire,no cd casino empire,trucos para casino empireganancia casino portal internetjuego dadosruleta de la fortuna onlinejuego interactivo portal internetganancias casinos pagina webjugar tragaperras onlinejugar apostar portales webmaquinas tragaperras portal webjugar keno en lineajuego linearuleta europea paginas webbaccara en lineacasino virtual portales webcasinos gratis,casino gratis,descargar juego casino gratisla ruleta de la fortunatrucos para casino empireganar dinero verdadero onlinecasinos portales internettragamonedas lineajugar a ruletaonline wageringgames downloadjuego instantaneo paginas internetpremios onlineruleta americana lineacasino online espaÃ±olapostar portalesroulette portal internetjugar apostar internetjugar portalesganar casino,ganancias casinos internet,ganancias casinos lineajuegos casino paginas webtrucos casino onlineapuesta dinero portales internetjugar ruleta gratispremio dinero portalesjuegos apuestas lineadownload casino tropezslots gameeurobet pokertexas hold em poker onlinefree online texas holdem gameapply card credit lineinfo personal phone remember ringtones verizon,info personal phone remember ringtones samsung,info personal phone remember ringtonesget free ringtones,get free ringtones for my verizon phone,get free mobile ringtonesfree ringtones for samsung phone,free mobile phone ringtones samsung uk,free mobile phone ringtones samsung100 free t mobile ringtones,free hifi ringtones t mobile,t mobile ringtonesfree mp3 ringtones editorfree info personal remember ringtones wallpaper,free info personal remember ringtones samsung,free info personal remember ringtones when I was at a low point in my level of misgivings about him, it was in relation to what he might back away from in the interest of political gain. This shows me that he has a loyalty in which I can see the seeds of standing up to political pressure. I hope that many others will see it this way as well, because I would prefer someone like that in office.
I do not ascribe to the more messianic sounding things like “Change You Can Believe In”, because I what I think is a healthy skeptical distance from national government in contrast to the people of God as incarnated in the church. I am skeptical of what can be done with “the system”, but Obama has brought that problem to the front, and Hillary cynically attacks him for his idealism (mainly because, I think, she is green with envy that she cannot sell the notion like Obama does). I further think that the reason she can’t sell it is that that’s NOT where her heart is. She wants to “run the country”, and Obama wants to change it. Now that’s certainly tending to sound like a cliche, but that’s my sense as to why I want Obama to have that shot at it, and why I think she’s unelectable. She’s too entwined with special interests , never been where Obama’s been, and she is all-too-susceptible to the political winds (so she could not stand up to Bush on Iraq, and held out until the tide of public and political opinion was glaringly obvious). And I don’t think she would ever have stood up for a pastor and a church the way Obama did today.
We have yet to see what he can get done in Washington, but I like what I saw today. I like it a lot.
