His "glorious" speeches are like sermons, speaking in platitudes of "hope" and "change".

He refused to debate Clinton late in the primaries and is limiting his debates with McCain to only 3. Why? Probably because he's a horrible speaker without a teleprompter. He's a talented speech reader, but stutters and rambles until an idea arises in debates and interviews.

Barack Obama's policy switches are giving the Left whiplash

The Democratic nominee's policy pivots are causing anguish among liberals. He is no fool -



Barack Obama's policy switches are giving the Left whiplash | Gerard Baker - Times Online



An example of one of his many lies:


Townhall.com - Printer Friendly

From Obama's own website: Barack Obama | Change We Can Believe In | Ethics



Speaking of his website, it was reported before some debates that he removed and/or changed many issues that may have caused criticism.

He's not a revolutionary candidate. He's more of the same, possibly a worse than usual politician.



Bonus: for everyone who claims that Republicans are "in the pocket of 'Big Oil'" -

Another VERY interesting and alarming read:

American Thinker: Obama's Foreign Donors: The media averts its eyes

Those are good talking points, but if Obama has indeed changed positions weekly, give me two. FISA, yes, he switched his positions. And I won't get into the nuance of the bill because it's very complicated. But for the sake of argument, yes, he switched on FISA. That's the position that gave the Left pause, if any at all.

In terms of the war in Iraq, both the current Administration and the Iraqi government are most definitely leaning toward Obama's withdrawal timeline, which he proposed from the very start of this election and has maintained throughout. So no switch there. No flip and certainly no flop. He cited sixteen months at the start and his rhetoric has changed one iota. Now, if he get's in office and things warrant staying longer, should he hold fast to sixteen months for the saking of keeping his word, that would be foolish and a display of poor leadership. But based on the current conditions, as Obama sees them, sixteen months is probably a good starting place to begin to draw down.


Voting present in the Illinois Senate is not simply "present" or ducking responsibilty as some would imply. This is funny how it came up during the Primary, but no one cared to investigate what present actually means in the Senate. The Illinois Senate operates quite differently than most state legislations in the United States.

Speaking of missing votes, did you know that John McCain has missed more votes this year than any member in the U.S. Senate?


Obama's speeches, take it or leave it. Personally I don't think people being inspired for change and hoping for a new direction in our country is a bad thing. Especially when over 80% of Americans think we're on the wrong track. What, should we feel the opposite way? But I get what you're saying, you can do without the all the hype. Or stylistically, you're not feeling Barack. I can respect that.

And here are some notes on what is expected to be on the 2008 GOP Platform

Washington Times - GOP platform retains abortion-ban plank

Here is their 2004 Platform

http://www.gop.com/images/2004platform.pdf

As a Republican, a moderate Republican who is not anti-immigration nor anti-gay (I know. How is that even possible if I'm a registered Republican) I hope that the 2008 platform is substantive and addresses the issues that really matter: economy, foreign policy, education, health care. While I don't agree with everything the Dems present I thought they did a strong job in stating their case.
thanks smoot, good info

One of my biggest issues is that goverment in most cases is the problem and not the solution. Everything they get involved in just skyrockets in cost, size and usually performs very poorly. Just because I guy can give a very good speach does not mean I agree with what they are saying.
Dude! You only say that because Republicans have been in power for a REAAAAAAAAAL long time. Once a democrat, like Barrack Obama, gets in there....................it will change.
