thanks for posting the speech. i missed it last night and haven't gone to get today's paper or turned a tv on.
In the never ending struggle to keep the water flowing.... The Poo Poo Cowboy rides again!!!
Great speech but not real crazy about the content. Hands down he is the best speaker of the 2. Thats all I'll say.
I think the majority of the right stood in awe of what they was witnessing.
Obama took on last night without an ounce of fear, none...and it showed.
As I mentioned before, we are probably looking at our next president. That's being entirely realistic.
It all seems to boil down to two things;
(1) George Bush is terrible.
(2) John McCain is the same as George Bush.
You need to believe 1 and 2 to take something away.
The only change I see coming from Obama is the amount of discretionary income we will have and it will not be in a good way.

I never lost a cent on the jobs I didn't get!
I give him an a+ on the delivery of the speech but a c- on context.
So much for change. It seemed like the same speech from every other DNC.
I wish he would have elaborated more on how he will get us free from oil in 10 years? He should have been more realistic.
I came home to the wife watching it last night...I went straight to the shower and then my room.
She asked me why I didn't watch it, I said "There are only so many times I want to hear promises from a politician...it's just talk"
It's starting to look like she may vote for him ...
She likes what he has to say.
I made the mistake of asking her what she thinks about McCains history, his track record, his level of experience...she took it as an attack on Obama when I asked about his record.
I then reminded her that a campaign is where the politician tells voters what they want to hear to get their vote....that looking at a politicians historical track record & achievements is a very important way to guage what to expect from them.
The mistake had been made, I breached a topic I KNEW I shouldn't have....
At the point where it became apparent that I was the bad guy for putting down a living saint I sauntered into the dining room and sorted through the mail for a Victoria's secret catalogue I knew was there from a few days back.
Suddenly the heated "passion" was diverted by the same level of thinking that has aroused interest in Obama in the first place.
I live in Illinois....bad roads, wasted taxes, inflated taxes, corruption, illegal immigration, massive gun control. Alas, the rest of the country will go the way of Illinois.
