My Morning Wooten

We're going to focus on one salient point this morning, gentle readers.
The problem is that much of the country seems to be unaware of the 60s and 70s, while many of those who are still cling to the era. The old-timers of the flower-children generation want one last Woodstock on the White House grounds before they go...But the question, really, is to identify something in Obama’s promise of “change” that represents actual change.
You may be right, Jim. You may be crazy. But you definitely ignore the point that most Americans understand exactly what happened in the past eight years.

An unneeded war. Foreign policy which wrecked the only remaining superpower's standing in the world. Attempts at suspending habeas corpus for U.S. citizens. Torture.

We could go on but instead let us roll that last word around the consciousness for a moment.

There are a great number of people in this country who understand exactly what change means.

He misses or refuses to see the most obvious way in which Obama is real change--the fact that he's not white.

Oh but he doesn't see color! 'Cause he's not RACIST - not like those awful super-racist black people who are voting for Obama!

Sorry... I'm still befuddled by the fact that no one is getting impeached...
