>At least the next President, whoever it is, will have a better rhetorical skill level than the current one.
>I think you’re dead on right, Jared. Maybe it’s just his near-mythical charisma, but I really like the guy and really believe that he is sincere. I certainly don’t think he’s evil. Nor do I believe, as some, that if wins the presidency the country will become a socialist state in short order. He’ll need much more than rhetorical mastery to get any of his policies further than the paper they’re written on. Yes, there is a bit of egotism in the guy, but honestly, don’t you have to have a little bit of ego to seriously think you can be president? Plus, when you’re the first black person to receive a major party’s nomination, on the 45th anniversary of MLK Jr.’s most famous speech, you have to have some sort of feeling that this was “meant to be.” At the same time, the problem with Obama is that, like all liberals, he believes that the government is the savior of the people. He tried to distance himself from that core liberal belief in his speech last night, but the few policy specifics he shared revealed that the “new” Democrat is nothing but a well-polished old Democrat.
>Obama reminds me of several evangelical preachers…all fluff and no substance. What is he really giving us that we can hope in? Change? Every politician speaks of change, but I want to know how that change is going to come about?
>Agree with him or not, like him or not, he’s got charisma!!!!! And nowadays, charisma goes a looooooooong way. In our society a great number of people hear things they like but never question what they hear. Consequently, they buy the bag without looking in it and are angry when they get home!
>I think Obama has good intentions. I do not doubt his beliefs in the things he said. I think he is like Bill Bradley, a good sincere liberal – with whom I sincerely disagree and can like him while disagreeing with him. But I have rarely heard someone present them as well as he did. Frankly, I think he was right about not making politics personal. He might have rode the line in accusing McCain of ignorance, but he did not call him evil and we should return the favor.
>Good point, Dwight. Dems are always better at monologues than dialogues since they are held accountable in a dialogue. Their lofty rhetoric is allowed to go unchallenged in a speech. I also notice how Dems always reference problems that THEIR policies cause and/or aggrevate. They protest “No War for Oil!”, yet Obama complains about high gas prices. They complain about the closing of auto plants, but omit the fact that American auto companies are crippled with pensions and regulations while at the same time, Toyota and Honda are opening new plants in the business friendly South. I could go on, but I leave it at that.
>Yep, wizzle. Love how he blasted McCain for voting 90% of the time with Bush, while he has voted with Democrats in Congress (which has a lower approval rating that Bush) near 100%!
>The speaking was good, but the actual speach wasn’t so good, imo. Very broad and very deceptive.
