Nothing like pride in your country...

Although people like Brian Williams apparently wouldn't know about that....

this is kind of a sick joke to play on a bunch of 18 year olds, don't you think? They're going out there, young, naive, worried about their own performance, thinking about the future, trying to become adults, and here comes a (presumably) respected member of the media laying this ENORMOUS burden on their shoulders, "you've got to fix this broken country".

He's apologized for it, but given the full text of the speech, I don't buy it. He's all the way there, convinced times are terrible and we've gone down the wrong road, his generation has run the ship aground, this election is a once in a lifetime crossroads, etc.

Lord, please grant me this one prayer before I die, that everyone who really doesn't like this nation will just pack their bags and GET OUT.
