Independence Day, 2010

As our current President is likely to deliver something less than satisfactory, if he even makes a speech at all, I present to you the Independence Day speech of one of our former Presidents.

This man was considered quite a liberal in his day. Today, he would be an extremist right-winger. Presented for your perusal: "Some Elements of the American Character" by John F. Kennedy, candidate for the 11th Congressional District, delivered on Independence Day, 1946

Go read that, and ask yourself if any graduate of government school today, or even any sitting politician today, would be capable of delivering a speech like that. Then consider the rhetoric coming from the Tea Party, and make plans to vote anti-incumbent, or at least anti-Democrat, this November.
