Principle #6

This one has the complete sentence read by President Obama at his inauguration:

We cannot mistake absolutism for principle, or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate.

This clip captures him in what can only be described as the worst kind of the rhetoric he claims to abhor. He says that he is opposed to spectacle, while giving a speech in front of hundreds of thousands of his adoring fans, and the media. But I repeat myself. And he starts out by name-calling his opponents as absolutists, then condemns those who call him names. But it does flow so beautifully when he says it. I attempted to capture the rhythm and tones spoken in a six toned minor scale.
