Obamas' Insubstantial Rhetoric Continues

The insubstantial BS from the Obama campaign continues with Michelle Obama's speech at the DNC convention. She said that he wants, "to end the war in Iraq responsibly, to build an economy that lifts every family, to make sure health care is available for every American, and to make sure every child in this nation has a world class education all the way from preschool to college. That's what Barack Obama will do as president of the United States of America." And how will he do that? "He'll achieve these goals the same way he always has -- by bringing us together and reminding us how much we share and how alike we really are." That's no answer. That's feel-good claptrap designed to avoid answering the question (in this case, the question raised by Michelle Obama herself). Of course Obama is all about not answering questions . . . consider the BS answer he gave Pastor Warren when asked when live begins: "That's above my pay grade." Whatever. He has an answer to that, and he's going to make decisions based on that answer. He was a coward not to answer the question. Is that who we want as President? A coward?

Michelle ends her piece talking about Barack driving her and their newborn daughter home, and how we need to elect Barack Obama President in honor of her "daughters' future." I hate to tell her this, but I have a daughter too, and I have become equally radicalized with her birth -- to fight against the ideas of people like Barack Obama, Ted Kennedy, and Joe Biden. I actually want a better life for her, and that can only be achieved in a free country, meaning in a country with a free market economy with as little government interference in our lives as possible. If you have seen what Denver looks like now -- a police state -- then you have an idea of what I am fighting against. And if Obama ever says anything substantial you can pin him down on, you'll have an even better idea of what I'm fighting against. There are no less compatible ideas than Barack Obama's to bridge the gap between is and ought. But only if you believe what happened in the 20th century in that little strip of land between East Germany and the Pacific Ocean.
