I didn't think that I would ever say this, but President Obama just gave the best speech that I have ever heard from him at Camp Lejeune, N.C. to a group of Marines. I was, for the first time, very impressed by him. I never thought that he cared much for our armed forces, but his speech was very impressive and I'm sure that the brave young men & women all appreciated what he had to say.
I'm also glad to hear that the Iraq war will soon be ending or that there at least will be a draw down of troops by 2010 to 50,000 troops which will be there not to fight anymore, but to help. I can now see an end in sight.
I have to give Obama 5 Gold Stars for todays speech.
