Today, I delivered Coffee News to restaurants in Concord, NC and listened to NPR the whole time.
They reported Obama’s Nobel acceptance speech — playing clips, analyzing, and parsing.
Interesting stuff — waging war and seeking peace.
I haven’t had time to read or watch the whole speech, but it sounds like it’s destined to become an historic document.
I really trust Obama — both as a President and as a politician.
I’d like to see him step on some of the opposition’s ridiculous ideas a little harder (especially ideas about creating jobs by reducing the budget deficit — ideas put forth, hypocritically, by those who put the D in Deficit).
But I think he will step on those ideas soon enough. At this point, he’s doing a little governing, which is a better political strategy than campaigning (which so many can’t seem to stop doing).
