    beyond hate and the manufactured imagery of evil.

    Thank you, Edger, for posting this.  I must say I am mucho amiss.  I had not found The Real News until I saw this.  I’m intrigued, to say the least.  Thanks again!

  1. You asking me? 😉

    Obama has shown throughout that he has a unique ability to dismiss fear-mongering, darkness, evil and filthy-low rhetoric without lowering himself to the same level. And, the manner in which he does it, you feel all of that “baggage” dissipating into meaninglessness after so many years and, now, for the first time in so long, I think we see the light through the door!  He’s a very intelligent man and, if anything, we will be able to deal with his ability to be rational and logical.
