The President's convention speech
As usual he nailed it (transcript here). He's right that the election is about a clear and distinct choice between two radically different visions of America. His vision is one of opportunity for everyone versus one of enrichment and power for the few. It really is that simple. American values used to be about equal opportunity (not equal outcome), equal responsibility, fairness and justice. It hasn't been that way for a long time and although we want to move forward we want to maintain such values. I cannot say it or even summarize it any better than the President delivered it, so please read the transcript or see a video of his speech. All I can say is that despite my differences with some of Obama's policies this really is a very clear choice between better and far worse. And I choose the better by far.
