The OMG Obama rocked open thread

Because you have scroll fatigue.

Oh joy. Ben Stein is going to be on Larry King for reaction. A stagelight has to fall on one of these douches, right?

If Obama takes one senior advisor from the Clinton camp, that advisor should be Howard Wolfson.


wobblie said...

Of the Clinton crew, Wolfson would be most "not crap" choice, IMO.

I liked the “Eight is enough” line. I imagine most of the audience has fond memories of Dick van Patton.

EZ said...

Nominate your favorite excerpt... was it?:
"It’s not because John McCain doesn’t care. It’s because John McCain doesn’t get it. For over two decades, he’s subscribed to that old, discredited Republican philosophy – give more and more to those with the most and hope that prosperity trickles down to everyone else. In Washington, they call this the Ownership Society, but what it really means is – you’re on your own. Out of work? Tough luck. No health care? The market will fix it. Born into poverty? Pull yourself up by your own bootstraps – even if you don’t have boots. You’re on your own. "

or maybe:
"We measure progress in the 23 million new jobs that were created when Bill Clinton was President – when the average American family saw its income go up $7,500 instead of down $2,000 like it has under George Bush."

or the serious Smackdown:
"John McCain likes to say that he’ll follow bin Laden to the Gates of Hell – but he won’t even go to the cave where he lives."

I am going with #3 bob....

wobblie said...

That was the Gen X shout-out line. I don't know if anyone much younger than me even knows if that show exists.

wobblie said...

My fave is #1 with the addition of "Well, it's time for them to own their failure."

dr said...

The problem with the eight is enough line is that it opens the door to different strokes.

dr said...

Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are coming up on MSNBC.

dr said...

I think you could base an entire campaign around "John McCain doesn't get it" and "It's time for the Republican Party to own its failure."

The second sharpens the change idea, the first settles the desired frame on McCain. I hope Obama was just rolling those out and is going to repeat the both of them eight million times.

EZ said...

I liked 3 for its snarkyness.... but I agree that #1 should be repeated ad naseum!

wobblie said...

I put no faith in the predictive power of tracking polls, but what billmon dug up here is nothing short of amazing. Care to comment, ez?

wobblie said...

Pat Buchanan called it the best acceptance speech ever?!?

EZ said...

from the Asinine Press (AP):
"Analysis: Obama spares details, keeps up attacks

Associated Press Writer
DENVER (AP) -- Barack Obama, whose campaign theme is "change we can believe in," promised Thursday to "spell out exactly what that change would mean."

But instead of dwelling on specifics, he laced the crowning speech of his long campaign with the type of rhetorical flourishes that Republicans mock and the attacks on John McCain that Democrats cheer. The country saw a candidate confident in his existing campaign formula: tie McCain tightly to President Bush, and remind voters why they are unhappy with the incumbent."

I wonder how much local papers pay for that drivel? No wonder the MSM is in such trouble.... (h/t mydd

Written by someone who turned off the speech after five minutes, and edited by a political hack.

Ok - g'night fellas.
