He graduated with honors from Columbia. He graduated from Harvard Law School as the editor of the law review, magna cum laude. He is one of the great orators of our time, a man who can fill a 90,000 seat stadium to SRO. He is received by heads of state with respect, he has risen to high office rapidly, hell what else does the GOP have to throw at him but bullshit? They go against their own principles with the "inexperience" argument, they use phony Swiftboat books, email hoaxes, Internet rumors, fake letters from non-existent soldiers - this campaign is made of bullshit.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
