The LEFT is Underwhelmed … Democrat James Carville Says Not Obama’s Best Speech



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.

      What the heck did they expect? The man/child is an empty suit, chair whatever empty you want to use. He can’t help it that they all bought into that line of crap he sold them 4 years ago. They should of done their homework like some of us did before they pulled the lever with the (D) behind it.

      History was made last night at the 2012 DNC and it was not President Obama’s unimpressive speech accepting the nomination.

      Did DNC organizers actually believe for one minute that Timothy Dolan would compromise his long time well-known convictions on the issues … long time well-known convictions that are based on the teachings from an authority higher than ANY church hierarchy. The source of Timothy Dolan’s convictions? The Word of God.

      Matthew 10:33
      But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
      Cardinal Timothy Dolan: The archbishop who closed out the RNC, DNC

      Dolan was criticized by some in the church when he initially agreed to deliver the benediction at the Republican convention, an act that was seen as taking sides in a partisan fight. He said at the time that he would also be willing to give his blessing to the Democratic convention, and the Democrats took him up on the offer. BY THE END OF OF THE NIGHT THURSDAY, SOME OF THEM MAY HAVE BEEN WONDER WHY.,0,7241131.story

      I really felt sorry for those in the conservative media that had to listen to the whole speech in order to report it. Two minutes at a time spread over an hour is all I could stand. And now it appears that James Carvile had a similar problem. I’ll bet his wife was grinning at his discomfort.

      Obama says that Romney has no foreign policy experience, look who’s talking neither did Obama, as a matter of fact he didn’t have experience on anything!!!! And still doesn’t get it, all he knows is playing basketball and printing money, putting us in more debt.

      I don’t often agree with Carville, but on this topic, serpenthead is correct.

      I agree.

      I could be wrong (story of my life) but … it does appear that to a degree some of CNN hosts have moved to center or … they are more unbiased in what could be considered past primary liberal reporting. Could the current reorganization within the network have a bearing?
      CNN Worldwide’s Jim Walton to step aside for ‘new thinking’
      July 28, 2012

      Unable to reverse a dramatic ratings decline, CNN Worldwide President Jim Walton announced Friday that he is resigning at the end of the year.

      “CNN needs new thinking,” Walton said in an email to the CNN staff. “That starts with a new leader who brings a different perspective, different experiences and a new plan, one who will build on our great foundation and will commit to seeing it through.”

      DNC Chair Wasserman Schultz Cancels Interviews after CNN Interview Denied Reports of “Discord” within Democrat Party over Reintroduction of “God” & “Jerusalem”

      Even CNN could not spin this for the Democrats, Obama, the DNC and Debbie Wasserman Schultz when there is video showing just that. It forced CNN host Anderson Cooper to say Wasserman Schultz’s version of events was “an alternate reality.”

      Here’s one point that I find meaningless.

      RE: “Even the WAPO was highly critical and unimpressed” – This is an article written by a “Jennifer Rubin”.

      Her bio includes: “Jennifer Rubin writes the Right Turn blog for The Post, offering reported opinion from a conservative perspective. . . . Her work has appeared in a number of print and online publications, including The Weekly Standard, where she has been a frequent contributor.”

      Is the point here that an acknowledged right-wing pundit would not be impressed by Obama? Is this newsworthy or at all unexpected? Are you trying to say her opinion represents the WAPO? Really?
      SM: Yup really.

      Believe it or not, its not just the unhinged LEFT that get a right to have an opinion. Then again, you Democrats showed such Democracy in action at the DNC convention when you added God and Jerusalem back to the party platform. Not only did the lunatic Left take them out and then booed and voted against it to be put back in … The Democrat machine told their own people to go screw and put it in the platform against the will of the delegates who represent the people.

      This is incredible.

      You claim: “Democrat James Carville was not impressed, he stated that it was not one of Obama’s best speeches.”

      And yet you include the video where this is not what he says; neither sentiment, nor those words are said by Carville. I don’t know how anyone can lie like this, especially with the proof right there, presented in the same story.

      Just amazing!

      #8-SM: That’s a confusing reply. I never mention anyone’s right to have an opinion, so I have no clue where that comes from. I simply find her opinion predictable; therefore not newsworthy or special in any sense, IMO.

      Also, I fail to see the relevance of the Dem platform while discussing reaction to a speech.

      You mean not hs best reading of a speech written by someone else ?
