You are absolutely right. I have to admit I was getting a little burnt out for the first part of the convention but that speech reeled me right back in. You can’t fake that kind of hope and faith in your country.
I thought it was ok, I listened to part of it on the radio so that really let me focus on the words instead of all the body language and staging. Still don’t think he has any idea how to really implement any of his plans without taxing more than his 5% of America. Simple economics and history shows that it won’t work, the little guy will end up worse off because those 5% own and sell us everything, those costs will just be passed down as higher prices and get absorbed by the people who need to buy food and gas.
One is from The Guardian in the UK, so it is a little biased because it’s liberal but not too biased because it’s still an outside view of our government. Anyway, the Republican party is trying to market McCain as the best leader for protecting us from terrorists, but they know that in comparison to Joe Biden, Sarah Palin sucks balls when it comes to knowing anything about foreign policies. So the Republican team has successfully shortened the amount of time that Biden is allowed to cross examine Palin on “certain topics” and the questions are random and can include or leave out any subjects , i.e. foreign policy. I consider myself an independent, but I’m pretty damn tired of living under a sneaky ass government that isn’t even intelligent enough to hide the fact that they’re lying and hiding the truth from me. To me this is the first proof that McCain and Palin really will be like another four years of Bush.
