I am always honest with you, dear reader, well, sort of, you know, more or less, er, perhaps sometimes a bit more less that more, if you follow me . . . where was I? - oh, yes, being honest, well, the absolute truth is that I did not stay up until one in the morning to listen to Obama's speech - I know you will find that hard to believe but it's the truth! However, you will recall me telling you that I tend to have Sky News on the TV in the kitchen constantly - well, he's such a nice man, that Rupe - and so from time to time I caught bits of the replays, slightly longer bits than I intended because I kept losing the bloody 'do-flicker-thingie' and couldn't switch him off. However, I received the distinct impression that Obama, apart from being one of life's natural-born, A1 crashers capable of non-stop yadda-yadda, on this occasion he had even less to say than usual. So you can imagine my delight to pick up from Drudge the always very wise, shrewd insights (er, when he agrees with me, that is!) of 'The Kraut' quoted from a discussion programme on Fox News:
I was stunned. This is a man who gave one of the great speeches of our time in 2004, and he gave one of the emptiest speeches I have ever heard on a national stage. Yes, it had cadence, and yes, there were deceptions in it, but that is not what is so striking about it. There was nothing in it. This is a man who believes that government can and should do a lot. There is nothing in here that tells us how he's going to go from today to tomorrow. For any of the so called goals and what government is going to do, what is he going to enact?
If you go to the link you can watch and listen to 'The Kraut' himself. Actually, he looked even more miserable than usual but then, poor fellow, he had had to sit through the entire 'loada'baloney' where-as I only heard a few second's worth. If the Yanks vote Obama in I give up on them!
(Busy again today but should manage to regurgitate something during Saturday but Sunday is D-day, my big switch from XP to MS8. To misquote a brave man, 'I am going out of my depth, I may be some time'!)
