POLITICS: BARACK OBAMA’S DNC SPEECH
History was made yet again as Sen. Barack Obama gave his formal acceptance speech at the DNC for his nomination of President of the United States. And his speech has appropriately taken place on this 45th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have Dream” Speech at the March on Washington. Check out the video above of Senator Obama’s speech if you missed it. Or if you just need to check it out for a second time. The speech was no frills, politically driven, and straight to the point. And it was incredible to say the least.
On Thursday, more than 84,000 people jammed into Invesco Field at Mile High stadium to hear Sen. Barack Obama accept his historic nomination.
Obama explained to a roaring crowd that we must decide between four more of the last eight years or a new direction aimed at ending the conflict in Iraq and easing economic insecurities of working families. “These challenges are not all of government’s making, but the failure to respond is a direct result of a broken politics in Washington and the failed policies of George W. Bush. . . . I say to the American people, to Democrats and Republicans and independents across this great land: Enough!”
