  • Obama's speech in Cairo

    First of all, greetings to all of the previous Trackshark posters, since this is my first post here even though it isn't track related... Hope all are well.. And hello to all Track and Field News posters too...

    Just watched Obama's speech from Cairo live.. Although there wasn't time for him to discuss certain specific policies, what he said, and the way that he said it, made me proud that he's representing my country. and that he was my candidate of choice.. His philosophies seem so much closer to those of my own compared to the previous administration... Other opinions on his speech in Egypt involving US-Islam relations?

      Sup Blues.

      Welcome, friend.

      I missed the speech in its entirety but I've caught a few excerpts.

      I'm sure you've heard this...Bin Laden has legitimate concerns that Obama will positively influence Islamic sentiment toward the US and his security and recruiting efforts will be threatened.

      Something I predicted when he was elected.

        I've always believed that the best way to defeat terrorism is not by killing them all, but by undermining the ability of the terrorist leaders to recruit.

          I agree that would be ideal. Unfortunatley I must add that the dudes who throw acid into the faces of young girls for going to school in Afganistan should be eliminated.

            Amen! It should be pointed out that not all terrorists are freedom fighters. The goal of some terrorists (abortion clinic bombers, KKK, etc.) is to deny freedom to other people. In a democratic society, there are ways of changing policies you disagree with short of violence. For example, if the pro-life John McCain had won the election, then it would be him replacing David Souter and not Obama. And in theory, the pro-lifers would then have the necessary votes to overturn Roe-vs Wade. Or going back a little further, you can say that pro-lifers have themselves to blame by not demanding that Bush 41 vetted David Souter properly before he was put on the court.

              Thanks jazzcyclist not all terrorists are freedom fighters I hope this statement from "Mighty Mouse" puts even more heat on our "friends" from zionville.

                Great speech. The best I've ever seen from a US president in my lifetime.

                I don't know if Obama is the "real deal" or is just a product of great speech writers and media people. But I have the feeling he is the real deal.

                  If by meaning "real deal" you have a president who is going to usher in socialism, then, you are probably right.

                  The article below was written by Stanislav Mishin, a blogger and columnist for the Russian newspaper Pravda.

                  American capitalism gone with a whimper . . . . .

                  It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

                      Is it ushering in socialism or...

                      The stifling of self-destructive, unregulated, brazen and contemptible capitalist greed?

                      Greed that has lead us into an era of selfishness as opposed to selflessness where we're all defined by our net worth and many cant afford to pay their bills? Where others in position of power live excessive lifestyles at the expense of those they've deceived?

                      Regulate? God forbid!

                      Is not one's love as an investment in his fellow man not worth much more?

                      Once you have more than you can use...then what? You want even more? I have food in my house that will be thrown away and rooms that we don't use.

                      What will it profit a man to gain the whole world, but lose his own soul?

                      Oh wretched man that I am, who will save me from this body of death?

                      I'm just saying.

                          As the republicans redefined the word liberal they have now done it for socialism.

                              Are you kidding? Who better than to comment on a socialist than someone who was reared in that system? Its time to open our eyes and view the events unfolding in front of our eyes as they really are.
