Unimpressed II

The speech was a yawner. It just was. Haven't we seen enough of the stagecraft? I have. This was all glitz and no substance. He looks nice and has a nice looking family. I respect that much. But, the guy is a rookie with no record of accomplishment and not ready to lead.

Here is the McCain campaign statement on this speech:

"Tonight, Americans witnessed a misleading speech that was so fundamentally at odds with the meager record of Barack Obama. When the temple comes down, the fireworks end, and the words are over, the facts remain: Senator Obama still has no record of bipartisanship, still opposes offshore drilling, still voted to raise taxes on those making just $42,000 per year, and still voted against funds for American troops in harm's way. The fact remains: Barack Obama is still not ready to be President."

Barack Obama will not be elected President of the United States.
