A "Which is which?" Quiz

Got this from a friend.

Bot

-------------------------------------------------

BARACK OBAMA
'There comes a time when we heed a certain call.'

There was not a ton to object to, and indeed a lot to like, in Obama's speech in Berlin. Although I think I preferred it the first time I heard it, when it was sung by all those celebrities and rock stars back in the mid-80s.

Oh, wait, that was "We Are The World."
UPDATE: Pop quiz, hot shot. Pick out the "We Are The World" lyrics vs. Obama speech lines.
A: "We can't go on pretending day by day that someone, somewhere will soon make a change."

B: "This is the moment we must help answer the call."

C: "But if you just believe there's no way we can fall."

D. "The world will watch and remember what we do."

E. "Let us realize that a change can only come when we stand together as one."

F. "We cannot afford to be divided."

G. "These now are the walls we must tear down."

H. "This is the moment when we must come together."

I. "They'll know that someone cares, and their lives will be stronger and free."

We Are the World: A, C, E, I.
Obama's Speech: B, D, F, G, H.

If you have no substance, dazzle them with bull**** and soundbytes. Politicians love that, and some are better than others. I'm already sick of the Obama Love Fest 2008.

uh, more importantly, it was one of them "rhetorical type questions, the kind you don't really have to answer", as our current leader would say.
