Long Hair, Earphones, and cspan.org

All you need to witness history unfold from the comfort of your Wills & Trusts class.

Mindful of the consequential times in which we live . . . . The history we have seen together . . . the shipwreck of communism . . .the survival of liberty in our land increasingly depends . . . on liberty in foreign lands . . . America's influence is considerable and we will use it confidently . . . .

There are more possibilities here for Fun With Rhetoric than I could've imagined. He pulled no punches, minced no words, expressed no humility.

To sketch his themes broadly: Iraq, 9/11. 9/11, let freedom reign, bring it on, 9/11, liberty liberty liberty, we shall overcome, Frontier spirit, GI's are magic, Social Security, education, ownership, god, god, abortion bad, god, liberty, god, liberty, 9/11, strength, resolve, 9/11, Iraq, liberty. God bless America.

That about covers it.

But, of course, we'll cover it more . . . .
