The Corner

Obama then and now

From a reader of mine in Quebec:

Old Barack:

Don’t tell me words don’t matter.

‘I have a dream.’ Just words?

‘We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal.’ Just words?

‘We have nothing to fear but fear itself.’ Just words? Just speeches?

New Barack:

’God damn America.’ Just words.

’US government created Aids, supplied drugs to our community.’ Just words. 

’US of KKKA.’ Just words.

’What we are doing is the same thing al-Qaeda is doing.’ Just words.

’Until now, I was never proud of my country.’ Just words from my wife.
