Andrew Sullivan’s take on Obama’s speech

Posted on Updated on

Andrew Sullivan says it all.  He expresses what many of us our feeling about Obama’s speech.  Here’s a snipet:

Alas, I cannot give a more considered response right now as I have to get on the road. But I do want to say that this searing, nuanced, gut-wrenching, loyal, and deeply, deeply Christian speech is the most honest speech on race in America in my adult lifetime. It is a speech we have all been waiting for for a generation. Its ability to embrace both the legitimate fears and resentments of whites and the understandable anger and dashed hopes of many blacks was, in my view, unique in recent American history.

It’s a must read.
