I'm one of the Magic Negro's minions here. I'm watching his acceptance speech with the 80,000
people in Denver.
Barack Obama says eight years is enough. 'Eight Is Enough
' is a long gone, dead and canceled television series thirty years ago. Like Jimmy Carter. But let's talk about these past eight years under President Bush.
Eight years of safety. Eight years of tax cuts. Eight years of economic prosperity. Versus what? A community organizer?
Judgment? Sorry Barack, your judgment sucks
. Reverend Wright. Bill Ayers. The Surge.
Sorry Barack, government 'sitting on its hands...' with regard to Katrina, without calling into question the deficiency of Louisiana Democrats? Nope. Won't fly here
Democrats love to refer to themselves as ' progressive
,' yet, they stand in the way of progress on social security, on education, energy independence -- although you claimed tonight you'll do it in 10 years -- and illegal immigration.
McCain's been in Congress for 25 years. Yeah, so what? Biden's been in Congress for 35 years.
Handouts, handouts, handouts. I'm going to start calling Barack Karl Marx
Oh, really? 'Some of the proposals will cost money'? Really?Fulfilling America's Promise
? Or handing out freebies to everyone?
And you claim you are going to cut taxes
? How can you cut taxes when you propose to double capital gains taxes?Debate
? You've been ducking McCain all summer.
Iraq was 'a distraction'? Really? Is that why all the terrorists were in Iraq
Hey -- watch out. I actually agree with Barack here. Iraq is sitting on $79 billion of oil wealth, they should reimburse us.The agreement stops there
I don't remember much in the way of foreign policy stuff in this speech, something about 'McCain not following bin Laden into a cave,' which is ridiculous considering that the Democrats allowed bin Laden to become what he became, but along the way tonight, Obama said that McCain 'doesn't get it.' What Democrats don't get is that national security trumps economics.Let's be real
. While George Bush, Dick Cheney and the Republicans have protected Americans and America from Jihad, Obama and his Democrats have undermined the President and Vice President, undermined the troops, the war effort and leaked national security secrets to our enemies.Obama is an attractive candidate, but he's recklessly unqualified, morbidly bereft of specificity, and amazingly arrogant in his approach to the world's highest elective office
