Wow! They sure dragged in the college kids. They roared for Barack and Michelle when they walked in.

The horns were beautiful. What a nice touch.
“Fanfare for the Common Man”

They started the program with an Indian blessing… My, how times have changed.
He did pray for his son in Afghanistan.

Robert Shelton introduces Barack Obama…
“We are fortunate to have someone of his intellect to lead us at this time.”

It’s a pep rally.
Obama is quoting scripture?

Will he go there? Will he get political?…
Judge Roll was a graduate of the university and law school. He attended mass every day.
Obama is talking a little about each victim. Nice touch.

“We cannot use this occasion to turn on each other.”
(Please tell your democrats and your media.)

Obama lectures audience about playing politics.

Before the memorial they said that Obama would speak for 16 minutes…
He’s going on a half hour.
Oh well.

Overall… That was the best speech Obama has ever given.

The screaming in the stands by the kids was a little annoying though.
They need to discuss this at the next SEIU meeting.

Michelle Malkin called it a bizarre pep rally.
