Uplifiting Obama

In honor of Civil Rights' Day...

I'm pretty neutral as far as politics go.  I don't talk about them.  I do listen...every day.  When I take tests to tell me if I am an Elephant or a Donkey, the results are a line down the middle.  I registered  to vote as "unaffiliated."

Either way, I did appreciate the gist of what President Obama had to say in response to the Arizona shootings. Apparently a lot of other folks did too, as this speech caused his approval rating to shoot up to 54%.

"We may not be able to stop all evil in the world, but I know that how we treat one another, that's entirely up to us. And I believe that for all our imperfections, we are full of decency and goodness, and that the forces that divide us are not as strong as those that unite us."

Well said, President.  I couldn't agree more.
