“The American Spirit of Innovation”

From the White House weblog:

In this week’s address, the President discussed his upcoming visit to the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, where he will participate in a conversation about civic engagement in the 21st century and how we can use technology to tackle our toughest challenges. The President noted that we’ve made significant progress over the past few years in using creative ideas and technology to improve the lives of Americans, recruiting some of the sharpest minds to re-imagine outdated systems and better deliver services. That’s why the President is going to South by Southwest – to build on that progress and ask some of our most creative thinkers and entrepreneurs from across the country to help us continue to solve problems and update our government to the standards of the 21st century.

Suffice it to say that tonight Donald Trump almost assuredly won the Republican presidential nomination and Hillary Clinton won the presidency of the United States.

The Republican party died tonight. Please forgive my lack of tears.
