    President Obama addressed the United Nations yesterday and addressed the road ahead.

  • Bonnie: I'll bet the families and loved ones see this as more than a bump in the road. Good blog as always. Thanks.

  • I found a couple errors and corrected them. This is not just a commentary about one person but all of us accepting the word of one individual or a political party.

    What we see and hear should make all of us uneasy. The long road ahead should be recognized as a dangerous one, not a bump.

    I would say that about anyone thinks that we can afford to have tea with a nest of rattlesnakes.

  • I should have said those of us who accept the word of one individual or political party.

    Right around the 11 minute mark.

  • I think the bump in the road was mentioned on the 60 minutes interview.

    This is not about the president, but a few comparisons on how a great leader should be. And the attitude that is aided and abetted by the mainstream media on foreign policy or the lack thereof.

    Should we not be outraged that the foreign press knows more about what happened in the Mid East than the WH. Or what they are willing to admit to.

    It is about accepting something as truth no matter the source intead of studying it out in your own mind.

    I remember the President speaking about the video and addressing the emerging democracies placing emphasis on the futility of restricting speech in the modern world.

    I've read a couple of news articles regarding arrests surrounding the video.

    If he called the emerging democracy in Egypt at the U.N., their reaction may be to crack down harder on Coptic Christians.

  • Nice blog Bonnie you always write very elegantly.

    I have the bbc UK & world news on my phone. They are very fast with the news, sometimes I get news from them first before it breaks here.

    Twitter is fast, that's where our news sources get breaking news.

  • Today, we heard the words of two leaders in the Middle East. They clearly made their feelings known and their intentions too.

    Who will you feel safer with? A president who wants us to believe what really happened by blaming a video. Who leave the word terror out of his speech.

    Who doesn't come to the American People and say, I was wrong, this was a terrorist attack and planned.

    Even now, he sent Jay to be the messenger. We are not as important as campaigning in Ohio.

    Look at Joe's blog. This man is doing more than any one running for office in the US today.
