Obama's acceptance speech thrills libs

No doubt: Obama's ability to speak in public is top-notch. He can rally people with his charisma, much like Billy boy did in the 1990's.

FoxNews last night interviewed people who watched his speech, and they seemed to be really moved - of course it doesn't take much to make a lib get excited so long you use key phrases. I found it amusing that some people were so elated with joy after their messiah spoke that they were in tears and the women spoke as if they were in the middle of an orgasm (Oh Obama moved me like nobody ever did before... ohh oohh yess) or just washed their hair with Herbal Essence shampoo.

I was moved by his speech too - I moved right to the toilet to start puking.

In my opinion, there was no substance in his speech. He never discussed any specifics or elaborated on the nightmares of having a republican President for the last 8 years. He never unveiled any specifics about his plan for America. He talks about change we can believe in and promised to spell out C-H-A-N-G-E. Like any politician, he broke his promise. Using one-liners and campaign rhetoric does not provide specifics. For example:

Obama said it's time to protect Social Security for future generations - I ask how, Mr. Obama, do you plan to do this?

He said he would cut taxes for 95 percent of all working families - again, Mr. Obama, how do you plan to do this?

Perhaps there is a reason why he failed to unveil specifics: could it be that there is no feasible way to implement these changes without cutting spending and earmarks (the pork barreling that makes liberal democrats like Obama act like kids when they get their hands in the cookie jar)?

MY overall opinion on Obama's speech: Obama has revealed himself last night as nothing more than a typical politician. He talked a lot but said little.
