John McCain’s Acceptance Speech

September 7, 2008

This is definitely a video worth watching. Jon Stewart and the writers at TDS just nailed it.

Highlights from the RNC, including McCain’s acceptance speech. Which apparently has eerie appearances to George W. Bush’s 2000 speech.

Who would of thought those guys would of nominated a long time senator, purple heart winner from Vietnam, who married an Heiress. Someone who lost to Bush a few years ago. Sounds familiar.

I recently came out of shock.

The speeches, the emotions, everything was overload. Never would I have imagined that this year would be the year to change history.

We are all making history right now, the 18 million people who voted for Senator Obama, the 18 million people who voted for Senator Clinton. All of us, joined together to make Barack Obama the first African American candidate for President from a major political party. From Ted Kennedy’s emotional speech recalling John F. Kennedy, to Dennis Kucinich’s spine chilling speech telling American to “wake up”, to Hillary’s speech telling us “no McCain” to Democratic Presidential Nominee Barack Obama’s speech.

All 80,000+ Americans in Denver witnessed it 38,300,000 Americans watched it from their homes, even more watched it online, or read about it in their papers.

Every word was one to remember. Every moment was historical. Below I have chosen two parts of Senator Obama’s speech which stuck with me for one reason or another.
