Obama over?

February 15, 2008 at 12:46 pm 2 comments

Had a long conversation with good friend Kasey the other day about all kinds of things.  It was one of those conversations he and I have periodically that dredge up all kinds of interesting thoughts.  Both of us remarked that we thought Barack Obama would make a great preacher and we both wished he had some kind of platform or ideas or history we could draw on so we had something to like about him other than his great sermons (oops meant speeches). 

This line after Super Tuesday is a classic: We are the change we are waiting for… almost made me stand up and cheer, but what left me in my seat was wondering just what it is this man has ever done to commend him as president.

This morning I was reading another of my favorite blogs The Scriptorium Daily, which you can find here, and came across this essay which speaks well to the thoughts Kasey and I were expressing the other afternoon.  I know I won’t get a lot of hits off this post nor will many of you take the time to read this well thought out essay but it is worth your time.  Especially if the eloquence of Barak Obama is turning your head. Find the essay HERE. 

By the way this blog features the writing of several professors from Biola University where Brad graduated.  (read it anyway Kasey)

    No democrat should ever be taken seriously about anything no matter how they say it; maybe I should say no politician should….

    But we have to make a choice.

    No. He isn’t over. In fact, the very fact that this guy uses the term ‘Democrat’ instead of ‘Democratic’ party speaks volumes.

    No one who says, “The Democrat Party” should be taken seriously about anything.

    Ever.
