First and overriding impression, he is angry. Annoyed. Not particularly hopeful.
Bush-Cheney-McCain are responsible for everything and anything that you don’t like.
The video introduction was … weird. The video just showed him making speech after speech after speech. From the time he was right out of school up until today. Speeches and more speeches. Not a single accomplishment to be touted. Not one.
The speech was a typical liberal Democrat speech. He was quite good in delivery at parts but as the speech went on, his voice got louder and slightly angrier. Aggrieved. Annoyed. Impatient. He also took it right to John McCain, many times. Maybe this is smart, I don’t know, but he certainly didn’t seem above the fray.
He said that government cannot solve all the problems, but then progressed through a long litany of old liberal ideas. Didn’t seem like change, just more of the same ol’.
One other strange bit, on the historic anniversary of the famous MLK “I have a dream” speech, he talked about that about as much as he talked about abortion. Perhaps he was afraid he would suffer by comparison if he highlighted that speech too much or perhaps he is afraid that he might look like the “black” candidate. I don’t know, but it seemed like an opportunity missed to get labeled the …
- “I have a scheme” speech
- “I am extreme” speech
- “I am a light beam” speech
- “I am mocha cream” speech
- “I’ll make you scream” speech
- “My real name is Kareem” speech
- “I’m frightened by Matthew Modine” speech
Now before you yell at me for my mocha cream remark, he sure did show his white momma and granmomma and awful lot, no?
And did you notice Matthew Modine getting all glassy eyed and amorous looking? If Matthew Modine ever looked at me that way, I would punch him in the teeth. He looked like he wanted to visit Barack Obama in the hospital himself, if you know what I mean. I’m just sayin’ is all.
More thoughts later as they come to me…
Oh by the way, if you haven’t watched our video “Mad World of Barack Obama” on his support for infanticide, please do.
