Was this not a most rare level of profundity?



For history tells us that while these truths may be self-evident, they’ve never been self-executing. That while freedom is a gift from God, it must be secured by his people here on earth.



How often, in a lifetime, do we witness oratory like this?

1. One of my very favorite lines in the speech.

I want to see it on a lot of absolutely stunning motivational posters and jpegs.

2. Inaugural Speech

Not according to Bob Schieffer of CBS. He claims the remarkable thing about PBO's 2nd inaugural speech is that there is nothing "quotable" in it. What a douche!

3. And when you do "self-execute"

 

he will call on the DHS to forcibly end it.


Just sayin.

4. People who say there were no memorable lines are fools

This and other passages have been stuck in my head all week.

The inaugural speech moved me like no other. I'll never forget it.
