Insta-reaction to Obama Speech

My Twitter limit has been reached. So I’m moving over here to the big site to write out my instant reaction.

This was not a unifying speech. As I mentioned in the radio program, like Tuesday night Obama’s speech was designed to rile up the 20% of hard-core liberals and avoid a McGovern-like loss.

There are not enough radical feminists, leftist minorities and gays to find anywhere close to a majority coalition. I’m more convinced than ever that Obama/Biden will be lucky to get over 46% in November.

This speech was given as if he hasn’t been President for 4 years. It was as if Marty McFly took us all into the DeLorean and sent us back to before Obama took the oath of office. It was a complete rehash of previous Obama State of the Union speeches. Boring, predictable and tired.

Also, I found that Obama looked and sounded like he knows it’s over. He knows tomorrow’s jobs numbers tonight and I believe that is why he sounded somber especially at the beginning. Let’s see if I’m right at 8:30AM tomorrow.

This was not Reagan 1984. This was Al Gore in 2000. Petty, self-indulgent and divisive.

Oh by the way, I cannot WAIT until the VP debate. Ryan will LITERALLY kill Biden.

Democrats brought in union activist to impersonate worker at Bain Company

Looks like ABC is fact-checking the DNC.

The Democratic National Convention on Wednesday“, reports ABC News’s Jonathan Karl, “featured three speakers billed as ‘former employees of companies controlled by Bain Capital’”:

But it turns out one of those employees never actually worked for a company controlled by Bain Capital.

David Foster was supposedly one of those former employees on the convention schedule. He told the story about 750 steelworkers who lost their jobs when the Bain-controlled company GST steel filed for bankruptcy in the early 1990s.

But Foster, according to a former spokesman for GST Steel, never actually worked for the company.

“David Foster was never an employee of GST Steel’s Kansas City plant. He was employed by the United Steelworkers of America as their regional union director to represent GST Steel, but was not employed at our facility,” according to BC Huselton, who was head of HR at GST.

Via Jammie Wearing Fools via Instapundit.  Bringing in a professional union activist to impersonate a real worker?  Says a lot about the current state of the Democratic Party.

Do wonder if this story will gain as much currency as did the “fact-checking” of Paul Ryan’s acceptance speech.  And this follows revelations about Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s mispresentations about her own previous statements.

Does seem the Charlotte Democrats have a problem with a truth.

No, Mr. Obama, Americans don’t want to “fundamentally” transform our country

Calling President Obama “the real radical” in his column yesterday, George Will compares the incumbent to the three previous “transformative progressive” presidents, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson, contending that this year, Americans don’t share their vision of a large, intrusive state.  They don’t share Obama’s vision of “fundamentally transforming” America.

Instead, the pundit contends:

In 2012, Americans want from government not such flights of fancy but sobriety; not ecstatic evocations of dreamlike tomorrows but a tolerably functioning today; not fantasies about a world without scarcities and therefore without choices among our desires and appetites but a mature understanding of the limits to government’s proper scope and actual competence. Tonight’s speech is Obama’s last chance to take a first step toward accommodation with a country increasingly concerned about his unmasked determination to “transform” what the Founders considered “fundamentals.”

The Democrats continue to tout Bill Clinton’s speech, yet that Democrat famously declared that the age of big government was over.  But, as Mr. Will suggests, he does have one last chance to change course. . . .

Democrats: Let’s Ban Profits!!!

More evidence from Charlotte that the Democrat Party has devolved into the American Marxist Party led by Chairman Barack.

Tweets Of The Day: DNC Edition

Okay, I’m a bit biased since some of these are mine and some other’s are my partner John’s.  But they do seem to sum up the DNC thus far.

That tweet from Mitt Romney is a response to the “intro to Charlotte” video aired as the DNC began last night. You be the judge. Do the Democrats think we live in a Republic? Or a Socialist Democracy?

“Government is the only thing we belong to….” Thanks, Mr. Orwell.
