BARACK OBAMA – EPIC FAIL …
Talk about a disappointment and anti-climatic. Last nights President Obama speech left many on the LEFT scratching their heads. Obama gave the same old, tired speech that we have heard over and over and over. This can only mean that we will see the same bad economy under this president over and over and over.
Democrat James Carville was not impressed, he stated that it was not one of Obama’s best speeches. Even the WAPO was highly critical and unimpressed with Obama’s speech.
It would have been better had he not spoken. Seriously. Like an aging rock star, President Obama, in a downsized venue, with downsized proposal and spewing downsized rhetoric only reminded us how far he has fallen from the heady days of 2008. The man, the agenda and the aura are faint imitations of their 2008 incarnations. And most importantly, he put forth an agenda that was entirely, and obviously, lacking, one that didn’t begin to match the demands of our time.
Even for the liberal media, it will be hard to characterize a speech this prosaic as uplifting or fresh.
From the Left at the Atlantic … Obama’s Convention Anticlimax.
In a perplexingly lifeless convention address, the president fails to live up to his reputation as a brilliant orator.
And then President Obama got up and just sort of didn’t do anything special.
The president, that legendary orator, vaunted crowd-mover, well-known sweeper-away of audiences in general and political conventions in particular, gave a warmed-over rehash of his stump speech, right down to the exit music, Bruce Springsteen’s “We Take Care of Our Own,” that generally plays him out at campaign events.
