I didn't see him deliver his acceptance speech last night and I haven't read too much detailed commentary about it, but from what I have seen so far I can't believe President Obama is not getting more grief about this:
"But know this, America: Our problems can be solved. Our challenges can be met. The path we offer may be harder, but it leads to a better place," he said.
It leads to a better place? A "better place" is where we go after a lingering and terminal illness.
"He's in a better place now."
A "better place" is where the family dog went after he nipped a small chunk out of my little brother's cheek when we were kids. Oh, our parents told us the whole farm story and everything and we believed it, but when we grew up we all figured out the real score.
I don't know about you, but I don't want to go to a "better place." Er, not yet anyways.
Just what the heck is he going to do in a second term?
