I never thought I'd hear ultra-conservative commentator Pat Buchanan say "Obama" and "genuinely magnificent" in the same sentence. After Obama's Presidential-Nominee acceptance speech tonight, Buchanan also hailed Obama's words as "deeply centered."
This is a good sign that we can come together as Obama advocated.
Obama called for us to change the "idea that people cannot disagree without challenging each other's character and patriotism."
He called for us to restore our common purpose.
Obama said that he intends to "keep our promise alive." This includes the promise that each of us has the "freedom to make of our own lives what we will, but that we also have the obligation to treat each other with dignity and respect."
He nailed it when he said that our honorable service members have "not served a Red America or a Blue America" but a United States of America. Our flag says it all: a Red, White, and Blue America.
