Vote for America's future. Vote Green.

I'm feeling lazy, but I want to make a point:

Given that I am doomed to fail on the second given the first, I can at least share someone else's point. Enjoy the next two videos. The first will have you laughing and thinking, and the second will bore you into a coma but has a good point. Frankly, on the second one, I didn't quite make it two minutes, but I got the gist of it, I would hope. Enjoy.

Both are great videos, thanks for posting them! I had seen the first one, but not the second. I watched the second one all the way through, and found it pretty astounding. GOOD STUFF.

After I posted, I also finally survived the first half of the second video and got to the interesting part. The one thing I've noticed is that Obama's judgment has been extraordinarily sound for the most part. I don't agree with EVERYTHING he says, but on the whole, he's both intelligent and wise, and that's a very rare combination. I couldn't help noticing that Obama's tax plan actually, transparently and with no "new math", paid for itself.

In short, my assessment of Obama, and the reason I voted for him once and will again, is that he's the real deal. He's a statesman and a wise leader in the best sense of the terms, and he delivers his points in an eloquent and coherent manner. Being well under the age of 50, I have not seen such a person before in my lifetime, and I LIKE IT.

I know what you mean, Fred. I don't like everything Obama says, but I think it's time America got behind someone who is intelligent rather than just going for the person who might be more fun to have a beer with but is mean-spirited and doesn't know shit from shinola... or the one who is a "war hero" but doesn't often get his facts straight and does not know how to use computers.

On another blog, someone said that electing someone today who doesn't know how to use a computer would be sort of like it might have been in the late 1700s or early 1800s to elect someone who didn't know how to read or do math.
