Charles Krauthammer Responds to Barack Obama’s Speech: “He Gave One of the Emptiest Speeches I’ve Ever Heard on a National Stage” … All Style, No Substance
Hope and Change has been reduced to a desperate beg for four more years with no plan for the future.
Last night President Barack Obama have his speech to the DNC convention in Charlotte, NC accepting the Democrat nomination and begging America for four more years. After hearing speeches from Michelle Obama, former President Bill Clinton and even surprisingly VP Joe Biden, it was time for Barack Obama, the Obamamessiah. Needless to say, after listening to the same old speech of all style and no substance, it fell incredibly flat.
Charles Krauthammer provided his analysis on Fox News and stated, “He Gave One of the Emptiest Speeches I’ve Ever Heard on a National Stage”. Krauthammer is correct, for the moment in time and the stage set before Barack Obama, his speech was incredibly disappointing. All I can say is wow, this President could not have been more dull, empty and stale. Last nights speech was like a poor man’s version of Obama’s 2008 speech, except add in 4 failed years.

“I was stunned. This is a man who gave one of the great speeches of our time in 2004. And he gave one of the emptiest speeches I’ve ever heard on a national stage… There was nothing in it… At least Romney had a 5 point plan… He pulls numbers out of a hat… He doesn’t say how he’s going to get from A to B. It’s a vision. I have a vision of America where there’s no disease and everybody owns a private airplane. But, unless I tell you how we get there I’ve said nothing.”
ABC News has the full transcript of the President’s speech.
I can only come to one conclusion as to why Obama mentioned nothing in his speech. Either this mornings jobs numbers are really, really bad, or they are somewhat encouraging and Obama is going to play a prevent defense into the election. It is reported that when Obama made his speech last night, he was aware of what the August job numbers were. Or as the American Spectator called it, a Hope-a-Dope. In the end, no wonder Barack Obama moved his speech inside to the smaller arena from the 70,000 seat Bank of America stadium maybe not so much because of the “stormy weather” and “too big to fill”, it might just have been because Obama’s speech was too small for the large venue.
