    The following speech was made during the O'bama inaugural ceremonies.

    I grew up in a military family -- and my role models in life were my Mom and Dad, Lt. Colonel Earl Woods.

    My dad was a Special Forces operator and many nights friends would visit our home. They represented every branch of service, and every rank. In my Dad, and in those guests, I saw first hand the dedication and commitment of those who serve. They come from every walk of life. From every part of our country. Time and again, across generations, they have defended our safety in the dark of night and far from home.

    Each day -- and particularly on this historic day -- we honor the men and women in uniform who serve our country and protect our freedom. They travel to the dangerous corners of the world, and we must remember that for every person who is in uniform, there are families who wait for them to come home safely.

    I am honored that the military is such an important part, not just of my personal life, but of my professional life as well. The golf tournament we do each year here in Washington is a testament to those unsung heroes. I am the son of a man who dedicated his life to his country, family and the military, and I am a better person for it.

    In the summer of 1864, Abraham Lincoln, the man whose memorial we stand, spoke to the 164th Ohio Regiment and said:

    "I am greatly obliged to you, and to all who have come forward at the call of their country."

    Just as they have stood tall for our country -- we must always stand by and support the men and women in uniform and their families.

    Thank you, and it is now my pleasure to introduce the U.S. Naval Glee Club.

    I did not post this to promote discussion. I posted it because I think it an interesting read.

    It was still a good speech, particularly since he forgot about O'bama!

    He didn't forget Obama...


    Remember, he is Commander-in-chief which makes him top of the military. :thumbsup:

    Wait a second. If Tiger had mentioned Buddha, you'd be up in arms that Obama had a Buddhist pray!

    Matt can you walk on water? I have heard of people who are mind readers when in physical or close contact with someone. But you are able to do it over the internet. Who HAAS THHEE POWOER, you or the internet. Fabulous in either event. You could save me some time if you could just write my posts for me. Do I need to touch the keys for you to work your magic, I know some of the TV evangelists have listeners get up and touch the TV to receive their anointing. Just say the word!

    I will have to check with LeBuick. He might do it cheaper. We are in the O'bama depression you know and money is scarce, especially since Congress is busy giving it all away.

    What does being Buddist have to do with a speech supporting our military?

    If you find it let me know, I will go and help you troll... I also have things I am not happy about with Obama and/or the democrats.

    Ex... There is a pro-union clause in the stimulus bill. I understand the intention is to keep all the jobs from going to cheap immigrant workers or unskilled labor who some of these companies will hire and do cheap/lousy work just to get the dollars. My problem with the clause is most SB are not union shops. I was hoping most of these jobs would go to SB's. I guess we'll have to see how it works out.
