I realize that there's another mindset I can't wrap my head around, and it's the one that rejects Obama's empathy and intellect.
Look, I appreciate it if someone disagrees with his policies for sound philosophical reasons. But those who dismiss him as 'the teleprompter', or see speeches like this one as some kind of fraud... I can't see that as anything but willful blindness.
I listen to the man's words and they make me want to be a better American. They make me want to be a better human being.
Anyone who listens to thse same words and can only muster a sneer is cheating themselves.
