As a recap of the historical past several days, please allow me to recap the core words and phrases of the new age:
"Our collective failure to make hard choices..."
"Unpleasant decisions we'll need to make..."
"The time has come to set aside childish things..."
"A call to end an age of overconsumption..."
"An era of greed and irresponsibility on the part of some"
"A time to choose our better history..."
"A time to reclaim values..."
"Extend a hand...to those willing...to unclench your fist"
BOTTOMLINE: "He simply promised to strike the balance differently, as America tries to hew to its ideals while pursuing a strategy of silent strength. Whether he can execute that change is a test that begins Wednesday morning."
Actions, not just words, make the difference. It's a matter of balancing both strategy and execution.
Now, it's time to do OUR part. So, it's time to do YOUR part.
