After seeing Obama's address to Congress...

I didn't know the words that Obama was talking about when he mentioned the inscription over the House of Representatives, so I looked it up. They are:

Let us developed the resources of our land, call forth its powers, build up its institutions, promote all its great interests and see whether we also in our day and generation may not perform something worthy to be remembered.
—Daniel Webster

If only we and they would have recalled these words over the past decade, perhaps our current catastrophe could have avoided. At the least, it might have inspired the honest ones.
