Barack Obama: We are the UNITED STATES

By Remy Benoit

When I was growing up, we were Red, White, and Blue. We were not Red and Blue. Obama tonight asked us to remember that.

Listening to his closing I had a flashback to other speeches a long, long time ago¬óspeeches about what you could do for your country¬óspeeches about having a dream.

Interesingly, it was announced today that we might have to send 20,000 more, rather than 10,000 more into Afghanistan. We have also heard that "20,000 more" before. This time perhaps we need to remember that we need a feasible plan so we don't just keep uping those numbers without a workable plan.

Barack Obama.
