The Convention - Observations
Tuesday, July 27, 2004
"When we send our young men and women into harm's way, we have a solemn obligation not to fudge the numbers or shade the truth about why they're going," said Obama. "... And to never, ever go to war without enough troops to win the war, secure the peace and earn the respect of the world."
Uh, Mister Obama, you're blaming the wrong party. "Without enough troops to win the war"...hhmmm...when you think of troop reductions and cutting DOD spending, who do you think of? Um, I don't know, um, John Kerry?! The guy voted against more DOD programs, pay increases, troop level increases, than any other Senator.
Crikees! The Democrats are trying to Out-Republican the Republicans.
Best Line of the Night: Fox News' Chris Wallace on Teresa (Te-reh-za) Heinz Kerry "...I was waiting for her to break out into "Don't Cry For Me, Argentina". Heh. (channeling Instapundit)
I also noticed that the crowd went crazy for Howard Dean. Absolutely nuts for Dean. Maybe, it's not such a close race after all.
Kennedy was really terrible. Obama was brilliant - he's the best snake oil saleman I've ever seen. Better than Bill Clinton.
