Lo mejor del discurso de Barack Obama


Les dejo aquí lo que es, a mi parecer, lo mejor del discurso de Barack Obama hoy:

“Our economy is badly weakened, a consequence of greed and irresponsibility on the part of some, but also our collective failure to make hard choices and prepare the nation for a new age.”

“The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness.”

“Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America.”

“We will not apologize for our way of life, nor will we waver in its defense, and for those who seek to advance their aims by inducing terror and slaughtering innocents, we say to you now that our spirit is stronger and cannot be broken; you cannot outlast us, and we will defeat you.”

“To those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict, or blame their society's ills on the West — know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy. To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.”

“For as much as government can do and must do, it is ultimately the faith and determination of the American people upon which this nation relies.”

Chico, hace varios días que no visitaba tu blog y me he encontrado con mamey,...desde aquel comentario de los nombres, siguiendo con la foto de Madonna (¡alabao!), los oxímorons...vaya, que no puede una dejar de pasearse por aquí. Pero no te me olvides de las esquinas miamenses, eh.
Y claro ¡feliz cumpleaños!

Ah, y lo de la máquina del tiempo es fascinante...A mí también me interesa más el futuro. Vaya ¿cómo se sentirá la gente de aquí a cuatro años? Bueno, quizá es mejor no tener una bola de cristal que funcione, pa conservar las ilusiones...

Teresa, que bueno que estas de regreso. Lo de las estampas miamenses puede que se enfrie porque hay tantas cosas que estan pasando en politica de las que quiero hablar. Pero tratare de hacer un esfuerzo.

Isis, gracias. Ya vi que me mencionaste en un post. Lo bueno que tiene esto es lo malo que se esta poniendo.
