While racing through some news items, I stopped to consider Obama’s recent speech in Berlin, and couldn’t help but puzzle over this line:
“People of Berlin, people of the world, this is our moment. This is our time.”
It echoes a speech he gave in Minnesota last June:
“America, this is our moment. This is our time.
This is what gets him the cheers? This isn’t a bunch of fluff filled with air — it’s just — air.Â Of course this is our time.Â So what?
Obama reminds me of a wisecracking uncle who’d pretend to praise others with flowery little nothings such as, “Of all the people I’ve ever met, he was certainly one of them.”
That’s what Obama is using to woo the voting public. Nothing. Pure void. Vast, blinding emptiness pretending to be something, malleable masterpieces that’ll mold themselves into whatever a hungry audience wants them to be. Obama’s killing ‘em with blanks. And it’s working.
