Thank God we're free at last!
How'd people react to the "red man can get ahead, man" benediction, Mr. Frizzelle?
Congrats on the seats.
Even if you couldn't see the magnificent speech being delivered.
Obams touches on these very recent historical moments without the heavy-handed reference of Bush. "9/11" is not the justification for every misstep, instead we are reminded that our history is ours, and Katrina and the attacks are elevated to the level of metaphor. It is subtle, but it is more powerful, since we can learn and move forward from these moments, instead of becoming mired in their weight.
