Barack’s Youth Brigade (Updated)

Posted in Politics by clogsville on October 20, 2008

Some of the scariest excerpts from this campaign-season (vids of most at back; I prefer using transcripts):

Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation and that you move out of your comfort zone. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual – uninvolved, uninformed – you have to stay at the seat at the table of democracy with a man like Barack Obama not just on Tuesday but in a year from now, in four years from now, in eights years from now, you will have to be engaged.”  Michelle Obama, to students and others at UCLA Get Out to Vote rally, february 3d 2008

We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the
national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong,
just as well funded.”
  Barack Obama, Springs Colorado, July 2nd 2008
