So my HRC leaning father finally fell. On Sunday we met for brunch and he was a HRC fan. On Friday night he's on Team Obama. The "More perfect Union" speech, left him with no option but to switch sides. Seems his fascination for HRC, was her ability to needle Repugs. (Give credit where credit is due, she does have that ability)
He teaches Speech writing and English at a local community college and has always been progressive and non-tolerant of intolerance. He lost friends when he invited Black coworkers to his wedding reception in 1965. He maintains, that as an Irish immigrant to the USA, his success was greatly ensured by his ability to speak english and the fact he was white. I suspect that his students, predominately immigrants are going to be dissecting that speech line by line.
So he tasked me with creating a CD of Obama's "More perfect union" speech, which after a lot of searching and updating to Quicktime Pro, I was able to do. But I wanted to include the speeches, "Ebenezer Church", and his Announcement Speech. I can't find one downloadable audio version of those speeches.
Does anyone have a mp3 version of those speeches and can someone tell the Obama campaign put a downloadable audio version of these speeches onto the website, or to Itunes maybe, make it easy for the masses.
It seems it would be a great way to get Obama's msg's out to a broader audience. You'd be able to listen to the way that his speeches have evolved, you could listen when you wanted, you could make the Repug's at work listen. But mainly you'd help me make sure that my dad becomes smarter about the new team he's on.
And if anyone says, "Just go to the Obama Website", I'm going to ask for very specific directions because in the 2 days of searching I haven't seen it posted anywhere.
The audio link for the "More perfect Union" speech is here
