Barack Obama responds to
“Some may say words are change. But you and I know words are cheap.”
— Hillary Rodham Clinton, 2008
“The most important thing we can do right now is to reengage the American people in the process of governance to get them excited and interested again in what works and what can work in our government, to make politics cool again and important again and relevant again;
Don’t tell me words don’t matter.
‘I have a dream’ – just words?
‘We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal’ – just words?
‘We have nothing to fear but fear itself’ – just words. just speeches?
It’s true speeches don’t solve all problems, but what is also true is that if we cannot inspire the country to believe again then it doesn’t matter how many policies and plans we have and that is why I am running for President of the United States of America and that’s why I just won eight elections straight because the American people want to believe in change again.
Don’t tell me words don’t matter!”
