On furthering agendas

Let me share with you my own personal definition of "upsetting":

When discussing politics with someone who voted for George W. Bush in both 2000 and 2004, you reference a speech given by Barak Obama discussing unification of America through racial divides and class and gender:

And the person you're discussing politics with has seen this video, they have the audacity to say something to the effect of "I am personally offended that this man would stand in front of the nation and just pay lip service and make empty statements to deflect blame and further his own agendas..."

Well. Let's just say that the only reason this person didn't end up punch punch kicked was because she gave me birth.
