THE BUZZ IN CHARLOTTE: Reporters think President
Obama’s speech was lame – meandering, and sounding like a State of the Union address. People at the after-parties seemed baffled that he didn't lift his game for the big moment. But mostly Republicans watched the Republican convention, and mostly Democrats watched the Democratic convention. So the acceptance speeches weren’t as big a moment for talking to swing voters as they were in the past.
New York Times.
Another good one.
Good round up on the Daily Beast.
It was flatulence in a spacesuit.
And to boot, the Convention alienated Jews and Christians. Their embarrassing attempt to reverse the blunder alienated the Arabs.
I wonder what makes them think the country has now been ideologically divided into these two camps and the swing voter has gone the way of the buffalo?
Obama decided his strategy for this race was to come out of his closet as a communist? The godless ideologues, promiscuous women and men, illegal immigrants and mulsims have aligned and the rest of us are Republicans?
It occupied that uncomfortable zone between policy and poetry where it supplied neither enough of one nor enough of the other to satisfy everyone. The people who were going to be satisfied no matter what are already satisfied. So are the people who were going to be dissatisfied no matter what.Roger that.
Here's another interesting quote:
My opponent and his running mate are new to foreign policy. (Laughter, applause.) But from all that we've seen and heard, they want to take us back to an era of blustering and blundering that cost America so dearly. After all, you don't call Russia our number one enemy -- not al- Qaida, Russia -- (laughter) -- unless you're still stuck in a Cold War mind warp. (Cheers, applause.) You might not be ready for diplomacy with Beijing if you can't visit the Olympics without insulting our closest ally. (Laughter, cheers, applause.)”LOL. Whooh-hooh. YAAAAAAAAY.
China is our closest ally? Russia?
"When you pick up that ballot to vote, you will face the clearest choice of any time in a generation. On every issue, the choice you face won't be just between two candidates or two parties. It will be a choice between two different paths for America."
You've got that right.
Godless Communism where the people will be slaves of the government.
Slaughtering of Christians and the Jews are next.
Free sex pills and abortions for sluts as parents and grandparents struggle to pay for their heart medication and they are denied procedures to ease their pain, improve the quality of their life, save them from the talons of death.
I spoke to a friend last night, asked him if thought there were enough freaks in America to elect us into slavery. All he could say is, "It's a close race".
Not a very edifying picture of what's left of the intellectual capacity of what was once the greatest country on earth.
The reality is, we can't escape our fate. At some point, the Book of Revelation is going to play out. Obama has accelerated the pace. I think we've got a good, solid shot at putting a tourniquet on the damage. Not to be selfish and foist it upon another generation, but the state of souls is abysmal. We need more time. Beg for it.
