Get Used To Obama, Stupid — Jack Engelhard

 

If you’re afraid, as I am, about another four years under Obama – tough. He’s in, in like Flynn.

 

The conservative in me hopes for the best, but I’m a gambler and my money says that once again the Republicans are a bad bet.

 

They have only themselves to blame. O how they keep blowing chances! Last time they gave us what’s-his-name, a great war hero but a lousy campaigner. Ditto this time around…and I came to this realization while watching that kid on some talk show – Paul Ryan, right?

 

So underwhelming, this kid. Absolutely generic.  I can’t dislike him but can’t like him, either.

Obama’s Denver Speech-More Is Less

By Jack Engelhard

 

Barack Obama’s acceptance speech in Denver ran for nearly an hour. Half of it could have been cut had he left out his rage against John McCain. By my count, he mentioned McCain 40 times, derisively, and that is no way to make friends and influence people. This was an angry speech, it was divisive, and so very surprising from the lips of a man whose theme is unity.

 

We could have used some healing.

 

Those of us out here who are mild-mannered Republicans, or on-the-fence Independents, were in search of a message to help us make up our minds, words to animate us toward this Democrat nominee, but all we got was politics as usual, and worse, resentment and mockery. This was not the Obama as advertised.
