The triumph of the mundane

The more I learn about Obama, the less — much less — that I like him. Over at Cheat-Seeking Missiles, Laer brings up the fact that Obama’s moderate posturing for his presidential candidacy is just that: posturing. In fact, he’s about as liberal as liberal can be, which is fine if you like that kind of stuff, but not fine if you’re trying to gull the American public into believing you’re just Mr. Middle-of-the-Road.

The other thing that really irks me about the guy, aside from his duplicity, is the fawning over his stellar rhetoric. It shows how cheapened that commodity is in this day and age that Obama is held up as an example of quality speech making. Fortunately, I’m not the only one who sees the emperor parading down the street with people singing hosannas to his invisible speech making skills. Patrick, my favorite Paragraph Farmer, is wise to Obama too, and has written a wonderful, and extremely funny, article exposing Obama’s verbal nakedness.

After reading Patrick’s article, which will leave you both laughing and feeling depressed about the level of political debate in this country, you may want to visit this website for a good dose of quality political speeches. | digg it

    You know Bookworm, Obama has been in the public eye for quite a while now, and I’ve still yet to know what he stands for (except that he wants us out of Iraq).

    Being for hope is wonderful and all. But that’s about as bad as being for the environment (It doesn’t require anything of you.)

    Ah well, it seems we have ourselves yet another presidential candidate who wants to be President because… well, he wants to be president. (shrug)

    If yer goan’ to Vote Obama, the Dem’crats for to please;
    oh he’s goan’ to invoke Katrina, and put our soldiers on their knees.
    Vote Obama! But don’t you cry for me, cuz I’m votin’ Giuliani,

    Heck, it rhymes, and that’s all that counts.

    Blogs remind me of the coffee,tea and chocolate houses of England in the 1670’s.Too tame,too talkative.Too much like a —– to be taking seriously.Yada yada and more blah blah.Good on you Obama for being a decent person of action in trying to get America out of Iraq and end the nightmare startd by litle Georgie Porgie XL111 playing with his little silver toy soldiers.Like Louis X1V he will have to melt them down to help ease the insane debt accrued through his actions !
