How Was There Ever Any Doubt That This Guy Would Win?

Obama’s weekly webcast for Thanksgiving:

Like him or hate him, he’s an incredible speaker. I love how he anchors his words in the past, with Lincoln, and then brings him back later in the speech to demonstrate that recovery can happen; and he ends on hope.

When was the last time a Canadian politician had a speech half as good as that? Then they wonder why no one voted in the last election… did you want to elect the man who hates everyone, the man who can’t speak english, the man who can’t possibly win, or the woman who can’t possibly win?

We need some hope and integrity around here.
