Obama addresses the World

The President of the United States addressed the United Nation's General Assembly last week in New York City. Though the speech was covered by the mainstream news networks, it was by no means emphasized. In my opinion this 30-minute speech was the most historic speech President Obama has delivered and I think will go down in history as a shining moment.  Famed biographer Doris Kearns Goodwin taught me that the Gettysburg address was barely noticed when Lincoln first delivered it. Few but the attendees in the front row could hear Lincoln's spoken words. Most of the crowd were not even paying attention to him but talking amongst themselves, much like contemporary people get distracted talking amongst themselves over social networks and so on. Don't let this historic speech pass you by. You can watch it right here on Tom Paine's Ghost! 

P.S. I will be live-blogging the Presidential Debate from Colorado today. Tune in here at 9PM eastern, 7PM mountain time tonight!
