Obama uses a host of emphatics (e.g., Period!, Let me be clear!, Make no mistake about it!) precisely because he seeks to accomplish in speech what he cannot do in fact.

Part of the recovery process for this country will be a renewed emphasis on seeing sermons, rather than hearing them.

    The strength in Reagan’s speeches was that they had the ring of truth to them. Obama’s speeches are true because he says so, racist!

    Man, when I saw the title of this post right after the newer post by Stacy that’s now just above it, I LOL’ed.

    I hate to LOL.

    …emphasis on seeing sermons, rather than hearing them.

    Dang, Smitty posts are hard. Isn’t that supposed to be the other way around (or am I missing the point again)?

    When President Obama talked about how he believed in american exceptionalism, one writer commented that it reminded him of something P.M. Thatcher said, “If a woman has to tell you she’s a lady, she’s not.”

    Wait, I geddit. You mean actually *attending* a sermon, versus hearing barack sermonize in his Castro-like speeches.

    Indeed. Pretty much the exact opposite of “speak softly and carry a big stick”.

    I believe he means, seeing an action rather than boasting about what supposedly will happen.
