barack obama: that's just being lazy...

from an interview with barack obama today:

I think there are so many people who are telling us what we can't do, that we are inevitably divided between red states and blue states, that politics always has to be mean and nasty and personally destructive, that, you know, the poor will always be with us, that, you know, race, will always dominate, and racism will prevent an African-American president, that in our foreign policy they're all out to kill us, and, you know, we've got to go our own way.

You know, I mean, that's not being realistic; that's just being lazy intellectually.
