Wake Up America


Did you hear the speech that Dennis Kucinich made at the Democratic Convention yesterday? I missed it. I can only take just so much of political conventions. Had to move on to other things. But today The Pagan Sphinx posted a video of this speech. I am so glad she did!

I have added the video to the bottom of this page. Please check it out.

I can't stand to watch a lot of it either, Bobbie. I did watch both the Clintons. Thought Bill did a good job last night. I will check out the video. Thanks.

I could not believe that! He sure did "Wake Me UP!" I'm glad that you posted it, I hadn't seen it yesterday! Thanks very much for a sharing and opening my eyes to so much that I didn't know!

I havent seen much of the convention because I am at the office all day and the networks are not airing anything til well after 10:30 by which time I am falling asleep (I get up at 6) ... anyway last nite I got home and put on CSPAN .. got to watch the roll call and then witness history as Senator Clinton did the right thing and pre-empted the rest of the roll call and called for a unanimous nomination of Senator Obama .. I was fa-klempt and then the emotion in the hall really swept me up and I ended up crying .. to have witnessed history this way .. made me remember how my dad was on New Year's Eve 1999-2000 .. he was awed and proud to have lived to see the new millenium... that's how I felt .. I am looking forward to change ... slow, as I know it will be I am still hopeful

Yes, Daryl, that was a very moving moment. And I am very hopeful - but with some misgivings. I've said it before - I am afraid for Mr.Obama, and in consequence, for all of us. There has already been a plot to assassinate him. There will be others. It's a sad commentary on our world today.

I will check out the video, too. I finally had to shut off the TV after Biden's speech. Thanks for the info and I'll be back to visit again.

I saw the speech over at Raven's Nest. I also read this morning that he had a line of his speech cut out.

He said - "they want 4 more years when they deserve 10 to 20"

I have such respect for Kucinich and he is yet more example of how the media lets us down by never covering him properly. During the campaign their treatment of him was shameful!

I saw that - he is a great speaker and had lots of things to say that everyone should take heed about.
