Obama's Father Day Speech 08

Barack celebrated Father's Day by speaking at the Apostolic Church of God in Chicago. He began by quoting the Sermon on the Mount, in which Jesus closes by saying, “Whoever hears these words of mine, and does them, shall be likened to a wise man who built his house upon a rock.”

He addressed MIA fathers in the African-American community, as well as the prevalence of single parenthood.

Al Gore's Endorsement Speech

I've listened to the pundits say that the Gore endorsement is too late, meaningless, etc. Call it what you want. However, I think it's another brilliant move by Obama. The timing and venue (Michigan) could not have been better.

Gore is a constant reminder to Democrats that every vote counts, and how the American people can be cheated out of an election. Not this time!

How it all started!

Al Gore will endorse Obama at 8pm tonight

Dear Friend,

A few hours from now I will step on stage in Detroit, Michigan to announce my support for Senator Barack Obama. From now through Election Day, I intend to do whatever I can to make sure he is elected President of the United States.

Over the next four years, we are going to face many difficult challenges -- including bringing our troops home from Iraq, fixing our economy, and solving the climate crisis. Barack Obama is clearly the candidate best able to solve these problems and bring change to America.
This moment and this election are too important to let pass without taking action.
