Hillary: Review
Reading Time: 2 minutes

I listened to Hillary’s speech at the DNC in my car driving home from Strategic Planning class.  

First, I was struck by what a terrible speaker she is.  Without the art and artifice of the convention hall, choreographed cameras, and wide shots of adoring fans, speakers are left with only their tone, pitch, inflection, volume, thoughts, ideas, and syntax to carry the message.  Hillary Clinton lacked them all.

Her speech seemed short.  Not that I was pounding my steering wheel and yelling for more, but Chelsea’s preamble was about five minutes longer than the speech, and Chelsea’s voice was less grating.   

Hillary’s shots at McCain were predictable and weak.  She had a good line that ended with “and no McCain,” but she left a lot on the table by not reusing it.  Repeating that line would have given the speech a cadence it sorely lacked.

Her litany of 1960s era liberal Democrat “reforms” reminded everyone that the DNC thinks the Viet Nam war is still raging, Nixon is still in his first term, and Ronald Reagan still governor of California.  The party skipped the 1980s when America turned conservative by 60-40.  According to the Battleground States poll, question D.3., 58 to 61 percent of Americans have described themselves as conservative in 13 consecutive rounds of polling.  

Hillary’s “I support Obama” lines lacked any vocal sincerity, which is telling.  She was far more powerful in her description of the people she met on her campaign, her thanks to Chelsea for the introduction, and her recitation of her own curriculum vitae. When it came to Obama, she sounded . . . perfunctory.

The MSM will describe it as the greatest speech every given by a woman at Democrat convention.  They could right, but only if they didn’t hear Barbara Jordan’s in 1988.  

In reality, the woman with the highest negatives of any candidate for president in 2008 will do little to turn voters toward Obama.  Her graciousness and partly loyalty were admirable, her delivery unpleasant, and her sincerity lacking.  

Bottom Line:  In two nights, the Democrats have done nothing to improve Obama’s chances in November.

Tuesday’s Top News
Reading Time: 1 minutes

The University of Illinois releases the Obama-Ayers papers tomorrow. Don’t expect the MSM to mention it–unless it’s good news for Obama.

Meanwhile, Obama has asked the Department of Justice to block ads that link the Illinois Senator to domestic terrorist William Ayers. Pathetic.

Obama’s campaign has written the Department of Justice demanding a criminal investigation of the “American Issues Project,” the vehicle through which Dallas investor Harold Simmons is financing the advertisements. The Obama campaign — and tens of thousands of supporters — also is pressuring television networks and affiliates to reject the ads. The effort has met with some success: CNN and Fox News are not airing the attacks.

But MarketWatch reports that a counter-ad by Obama is misleading and fails to address the issues raised in Simmons’s ad.

The Obama campaign has launched a new ad that fails to dispute a single fact in the American Issues Project’s initial ad questioning Barack Obama’s relationship with admitted domestic terrorist, William Ayers.

We shall see. I’ll report on the Obama-Ayers Papers if the MSM won’t.

DNC Night One: Meet Barack Obama
Reading Time: 1 minutes

Make me puke.

After 10 months of 24 x 7 Obama news, after the Washington Post, Tom Brokaw, and Ed Rendell admitted that Obama coverage is embarrassingly lavish, after an 8-to-1 newspaper inch advantage over John McCain, these idiot Democrats have the balls to stand there and tell us that Americans just don’t know Obama well enough!

The last guy who was so friggin complex that it took a decade to “know him” was Richard Nixon! Do we really want to go through that again.

Well, maybe if it’s a Democrat declaring, “I’m not a crook.”

Dems To Hold Secret Roll Call
Reading Time: 1 minutes

The party of lies, deceit, class hatred, race hatred, and Jimmy Carter will break with tradition by holding its convention roll call vote behind closed doors at a hotel on Wednesday morning.

Supporters of Hillary Rodham Clinton are furiously circulating petitions on the floor of the Democratic National Convention tonight, hoping to stave off a plan to hold the convention’s roll call at breakfast Wednesday — out of the public eye — sources inside the delegations say.

The move being worked out between the Obama campaign and officials behind Clinton’s suspended bid, would work in two parts: Delegates would cast votes at their hotels Wednesday morning; that night, at the Pepsi Center convention site, the roll-call process would rely on the votes cast that morning, the delegates said.

No wonder these people thought the KGB was so cool. Never bigger flock of phonies in one city at one time in history.
