It was masterful. But it was not perfect.
He is my candidate. I like the fact that he used the word inextricable in his speech and didn't trip over it at all. GWB could practice that for a month and not pull it off.
I like what he has to say and I think he's got some actual plans behind what he says. I think he and his wife are both two really, really, really, scary-smart people. He's not where he is tonight without a plan. I'm convinced that the first part of the plan was his, and his alone more than four years ago...that got him put up before the last Democratic National Convention. That's what launched him.
So, anyway, I was really impressed by the speech. I didn't hear anything I'd classify as a misstep or wrong.
But he missed something. And I'm disappointed about one thing.
He didn't once mention how Bush has trampled the Constitution. He didn't once say how he'd reverse that situation. I won''t go into all of the laws, (one that he recently voted for) that roll back our Constitutional Rights, but I will say that only the next President will have the chance to fix some of the damage that GWB has done.
I may forward this to his campaign. I told GF right at the beginning of the speech that something about the Constitution was what I was waiting to hear about.
You can do better Barak.
