The Real Danger for Obama

I am up late working on the job that is keeping me from having any time to blog, but I had Fox News on in the background and could not resist piping up with a thought. Are Hillary Clinton and John McCain the real dangers to Obama's candidacy? After watching his speech tonight from Indiana, I have to wonder if the real danger for him might just be that people will get sick to death of his painfully long speeches between now and November.

Seriously, was that speech 2 hours long or did it just seem that way? The live audience seemed to like it, but it sounded like this to me "Blah, blah, blah, change, blah, blah, blah, promise, blah, blah, blah, some poor guy in Youngsville North Carolina doesn't have insurance, blah, blah, blah." Admittedly, those "blahs" are soaring and rythmic, but they are still just background noise to me. Nothing but sound and fury. Do Americans want another president who loves the sound of his own voice this much? I can understand choosing Obama's long, but eloquent, speeches over Hillary's drone, but I think he is going to have some trouble up against John McCain. McCain is not exactly electric, but he is inspiring and can give a moving and memorable speech in less than 2 hours.

(Note: I only picked up on the NC comment because I am in NC).

Mac Lorry:

It's great that Obama wants to improve the lives of poor people, but the best cure for being poor is a good job. The problem is that Obama seems to want to declared war on anyone with enough money to provide good jobs. The U.S. has worked harder than any other nation in modern history to create a global free market, and while we are not there yet, no nation can now create a hostile business environment and expect to prosper.

The truly rich can easily move their money and their business to nations with pro business laws. Maybe that's the Democrats' plan. They do better in elections among the poor than Republicans, so if the rich are driven away and the middle class is made poor then Democrats will be back in power permanently. Now the only question is, is the electorate that stupid? Given the 2006 election results it seems like the Democrats have a winning plan.

Well, the Obamessiah does say nothing better than the other candidates.

Fidel, Stalin, and Mao all gave hours long speeches. Is any Barry different?

COgirl:

I think his speeches and the tone in which they are delivered, are designed to put the electorate in a trance so that all they remember are change, promise, hope, vote for me, we are the one. . . There's never any details provided.

Oh, I guess he did say he's going to double the capital gains tax. Let's give him a little bit of credit.

Adrian Browne:

The entire speech clocks in at SIX MINUTES AND TEN SECONDS and ends with the words "God Bless America."

Barry is inebriated with his own verbosity.

Has anybody in the history of politics ever spewed forth more while saying less than Barry Obama? The guy needs to learn to new words: succinct and brevity.

The audience shots were priceless -- Can you say bored?

P. Bunyan:

I didn't catch either Obama's nor Clinton's speeches last night (life is way to short to waist on stupid things like that), but I at least hope Obama didn't so rudely and arrogantly step on Hillary's speech like he did on Super Tuesday.

That's sounds more like it. FNC is too riddled with ADD to resist hitting buttons in the control room even if it was 2 hours.

99 bottles of beer on the wall,

Take one down and pass it around,

LoveAmerica Immigrant:

Obama is acting like a true liberal chickenhawk. He cut and run from a debate with Hillary. So he has to resort to verbage as a smokescreen.
