I appreciate the thought that went into this. And, I enjoyed reading George Washington’s original speech. But, I don’t at all read into Barack Obama’s words a bastardization of the original, nor do I see his words as divisive. I just don’t see it. And, I don’t see anywhere in your words an analysis of where exactly he did the things you accuse him of doing in his speech.

My own critique of President Obama aligns with that of Cornell West’s critique: http://www.salon.com/2014/08/24/cornel_west_he_posed_as_a_progressive_and_turned_out_to_be_counterfeit_we_ended_up_with_a_wall_street_presidency_a_drone_presidency/
