      Tigerfists, I’m mad at you! 😉 Did you realize that video was an hour long? I decided to just watch a bit and, of course, ended up watching the entire thing! Nice to get some background info on the vision behind the 2008 campaign. I also thought it says a lot about the President that his campaign manager speaks of him with pride, naturalness and a lot of respect. Thank you, TF.

    These are the people who our dear President is talking about. This is where his goal for the future resides. Education is extremely important and I am glad that he said it starts at home with the parents. We as a nation have dropped so low in caring for our precious young ones. It is true, many students from foreign countries come here for an education and then go back home. I don’t know if it is because they are not allowed to stay in our country or they go home by choice. My granddaughter’s friend goes to George Washington university. When asked what it is like her friend responded “Oh, it is all foreigners.”This is not meant as a criticism since her friend is originally from Romania. My granddaughter is in bioengineering and will enter Med School afterwards to become a physician. When 9/11 hit, two doctors working on their fellowship in cardiolgy were deported after all that work. It was really sad since they had planned to stay in America.

    My nephew has quit Dolby and gone back to Berkley to get another masters in green energy. Young peoople who are motivated must have a way to obtain these degrees without going into phenomonal debt

    Yes, too bad we can’t make the connection evident that if, as a country, we pay for the education of our young people today, we will be paying for the Social Security of tomorrow–and in between we get a whole lotta economic growth–as in JOBS;-) But, I’m no economist, so I’m sure it’s not that simple.

    But in Cuba, education was government sponsored up to and including college under circumstances I’ve forgotten. I saw little children, in frayed clothing, learning about dentistry and the raising of chickens! They were bright, articulate, curious, well-behaved–some in run-down shoes and patched clothing. When we had our Katrina, scores of underemployed Cuban doctors volunteered their assistance to the country that was embargoing them. At least President Obama is gradually wiping that spiteful smile off the face of a belligerent foreign policy.

    Chipsticks, are you sure about that pic with folks lining the street? I don’t know… I thought President Obama was having a Midwestern issue.

      😆 The RW would probably claim the photo is actually from when Palin visited Bloodlibelsville.

    Ok, I am laughing at the 4th picture……our President resembles a Hindu deity with 4 arms! I completely missed the second set of arms the first time I saw the picture.
