    Hello you two, the clip is from a PBS documentary called ‘Dreams of Obama’, the bit I posted here has the best of the old footage of him. I’ll dig it out again and see if I can find more clips of interest, leave it with me!

    This is who Barack Obama is: a bridge builder. It’s who he’s always been and will always be. Liberals who whine and complain about him reaching out to the other side do so because they have no clue about the man they claim to have supported and voted for.

      A Bridge Builder has is. Your statements are clear and understandable. As I have watched the posted videos this weekend, I understand our President so much more. (ThanX Chipsticks for this site.) President Obama is no stranger to adversity. All of his life he has been a Peacemaker. “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.” Our President’s ability to not to “take sides” is amazing. It seems he has one purpose, and one purpose only: that all peoples are treated fairly. As a Nation, we have not ever had a “thinking” president. We’ve been used to the John Wayne , Clint Eastwood, High Noon , “Let’s go to war, and we will figure out why we are fighting after we ge into it ” mentality. To just do something does not seem to be a part of who our President is. All of know, because it has been written a lot about by almost everybody that Saddam Husseim tried to kill GW’s father,HW. The plot was discovered in Kawait. That sent GW into orbit and the rest is history. Our president has always stated the Iraq war was a dumb war. Being the Bridge Builder that he is, I understand why he wanted to shut down the Iraq war. I understand him wanting and taking to Air Force 1 after him taking the Oath to try and establish us, once again, as a Great Nation instead of a Bully Nation. Often when a deficient mentality is exposed, people get defensive and go on the offensive to protect the unresonable thinking process. President Obama is trying to make our nation look humane again and govern with brains not brawn.

      Oh Please God keep him safe.
