Obama

We’ve got a lot of articles for you to look at reviewing the President Barack Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention last night. Personally, I will say it’s hard to pan a guy who you voted for four years ago. On the other hand, if last night’s speech is any indication, Obama is not the same candidate he was. The Barack Obama of four years ago was truly inspirational.  Last night’s Obama seemed to have lost his way. It isn’t that I don’t care about the things he cares about, like global warming, women’s rights and civil unions, but the reality is it’s time to take the fix down to the micro level by getting Americans and America working again.  And asking for more time to continue the recovery when the recovery hasn’t really gotten off the ground, as one writer said this morning, is a big ask. At the Convention four years ago Obama said that candidates who can’t run on their record paint the opponent as a guy to run away from. Hmmm.
