Obama? Oh, please.
The overwhelming volume of empty words and downright lies in Obama's speech was stunning. Here's just one example: he had the gall to say of Romney/Ryan, "They want your vote, but they don't want you to know their plan."
Really? This from the same team who had Pelosi saying on healthcare, "We have to pass the bill so you can find out what's in it."
Trying to tie his rhetoric to reality is like trying to argue with a drunkard. Thankfully, Charles Krauthammer expertly summed up the evening.
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 have ever heard on a national stage. Yes, it had cadence, and yes, there were deceptions in it, but that is not what is so striking about it. There was nothing in it. This is a man who believes that government can and should do a lot. There is nothing in here that tells us how he's going to go from today to tomorrow. For any of the so called goals and what government is going to do, what is he going to enact?
At least Romney had a five point plan. What we heard from Obama was a vision. And he pulls numbers out of a hat. 100,000 new math and science teachers. 600,000 more people working in natural gas. Two million more trainees, and he doesn't say how we get from A to B. It's a vision. I have a vision of an America where there is no disease and everybody has a private airplane, but unless I tell you how we get there, I’ve said nothing. And what is so surprising, is that - all he had left - he can't speak about his record on the economy, and it's not a good one. As we heard, he didn't speak about achievements, the one that's liberals like, ObamaCare, stimulus and etc… they're unpopular.
