making us proud

I sincerely hope that you had a chance to watch and listen to the Obama speech in Berlin today.
It was incredible. I mean a hundred thousand people or more. An endless sea of people, a rapt audience. Even Obama faltered on his words a couple of times. Who wouldn't with that many eyes upon you? It was impressive and presidential and uplifting and clear. I actually got choked up. This is what leadership looks and sounds like. This is what free people should aspire to. As Americans we should be very proud of the fact that man speaks on our behalf - and relieved. Truly awesome.

Of course, CNN promptly plants the seed that this success and welcome by so many in Germany may be a bad thing. The bullshit never ends with the media.
