Obama's response to the State of the Union Address

I got this e-mail from the Obama site the day following the State of the Union address:

Subject: It's Time for Something New

"Dear Friend,

If nothing else, the last election proved that politics-by-slogan and poll-tested sound bites aren't going to cut it with the American people anymore, and that's why the real test of leadership is not what the President said to Congress last night, but how he works with Congress in the months to come to find real solutions to America's problems.

The good news is that in the halls of Congress and across the nation, there is widespread support from both Democrats and Republicans on how to meet the major challenges facing America.

Most Americans believe that escalation will not bring the war in Iraq to a responsible end, and that's why I've proposed not just a troop cap, but a phased redeployment that will start bringing our troops home.

Most Americans believe that energy independence will come from using more biofuels like ethanol and making cars that actually use less oil, which is why I proposed a bipartisan plan that would raise fuel economy standards for the first time in decades.

Most Americans believe that the biggest domestic challenge facing the country is the high cost of health care, and that's why incremental plans that do nothing to bring down costs or guarantee coverage are simply no longer sufficient. We must pass universal health care for every American.

The American people are looking for something new. They are hungry for a different kind of politics. In the last week, I've been humbled and inspired to see more than 100,000 of you sign up to join our efforts to change the debate in this country, so that we can begin solving our common problems and pursuing our common dreams.

Last night was an evening for rhetoric and promises. But now is the time for action - now is the time to actually get something done. You deserve leadership that's commensurate to the challenges we face in this country, and I look forward to working with all of you to make this happen in the days and months to come.

Sincerely,

U.S. Senator Barack Obama"

Esteemed Senator Obama,
The deniability of your knowledge of Rev. Wright's value system is simply not believable. Based on your explanation, if I attend KKK rallies for twenty years I too would be able to say "The statements that Grand Wizard Wright made that are the cause of this controversy were not statements I personally heard him preach while I attended the KKK rallies or heard him utter in private conversation." With all due respect sir...baloney! I hope you don't think that we are so naive to believe that this was the very first time you had an inkling that Rev. Wright is a hate filled, vile, human being. I hope and pray that the great people of "The God Damned America" (Reverend Wright's words, not mine) are smart enough to know that you have been exposed. You at first said he was like an uncle you disagreed. Thank goodness I don't have any uncles like yours. Now you "vehemently condemn" and yet you are supportive of the new pastor Otis Moss III. Are you also implying that Rev. Otis Moss III is unaware of Rev. Wright's character? Are we to believe that an entire congregation wildly cheering Rev. Wright’s disgusting oratory has been hidden from you for twenty years? You can see sir where this argument simply becomes untenable in some of our minds. Your recent behavior to distance yourself from this is laughable. The only change I see on the horizon is no change at all. You are just another hack politician employing the full force of media spin masters in an attempt to cover up the truth. I do have hope that one day we will be able to elect a refreshing and different candidate. However you sir are not that person.

I am Mariam used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Priests Irumole); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps
for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him.contact him as spirituallighthealing101@live.com He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
more.
