You know I felt a strange vibe during this speech. Something akin to seeing a man who has given 40+ years of service to a company and now he is getting a gold watch (nomination) as recognition for that and he was giving them a retirement speech. I can't pinpoint it exactly, but it all sounded like good night and goodbye.

Maybe I need to see it again. I suffer from insomnia so it would serve a dual purpose.

Your posts are pure fact? No spin whatsoever?

Let's hear what he has to say.

Now 10, would qualify as huge.
I actually thought about 4-6, maybe 7 as a fair guess?

yes. it was an elegy. he was trying to fix his place in history.

it was rather beautiful. the whole situation, not really the speech itself.

Well you are confusing Obama with some of his supporters. Unless I missed it, I haven't seen Obama try and sell him running a campaign as executive experience... maybe I'm wrong. But I think I know where you are getting these "selling" points and if I'm right you are confused.

I've, for the most part, been a supporter of the President. But I acknowledge times are tough right now on many fronts, and blame can be passed out to many many people. Like someone said earlier (Headache, I think), I really do think the Republican party is changing, and I like it. Though I myself disagree with them on a handful of things, I'll defend Bush and Cheney where I see fit, but I think the party needs new direction and new leadership. I like McCain. I like Palin. I like Jindal. I like Romney. I like Crist. I like Boehner, and others. This, in some ways, is hard to say, but after the speech yesterday and tonight's, I want to move beyond Bush and Cheney and Rumsfeld and that crowd. I don't necessarily have many bad feelings towards them, I just don't want to see them anymore. I want a new Republican. I don't know. I'm not sure exactly what to think yet.

Briefly about the speech- I thought it was excellent. I thought the video was great, and McCain speaking over the crowd at the end was (though it isn't as impressive compared to others), as fired up as I've probably ever seen him. I agree with the thoughts here that independents will very much like this speech. I think McCain really has a shot now.

If McCain loses in November it'll be Palin running (and possibly winning) in 2012!!!
Geez, you're batshit insane MOST of the time, aren't you?

i think McCain was telling us that we need to repudiate the horrors of the past 8 years.

and i think he knows that the way to do that is not to elect him.

i really do think that.

i love the cross section of 24 hour news...

on msnbc someone's saying that it's a typical republican speach and he did nothing to get independents... i immediately switch to fox where there's someone saying how he did a great job going after independents and clearly is going to leave palin to hold the base... and then i go to cnn and they're commenting on how bad old people dance to cheesey rock music.

awesome

I though it was good. There needs to be changes. I think he has proven that he is not just going to tow the party line at all times. The bigger problem is getting the Congress to work together. For all the hate there is for Bush, shown in his low approval ratings, Congress under the Dems have had their approval rating as low as 9%. You cannot blame that on W. They are doing a bad job too. Until Congress is willing to compromise on both sides of the isle, there will not be significant changes.

I see McCain working with both sides which he has done... I dont see Obama doing that based on his background and what he has said.

TheEdge_U2JT, could you please tell me if you were outraged when Karl Rove criticized Governor Kaine's 3 years of service as governor and for being a mayor of Richmond, a town of "only" 200,000 people?

Dont be like the AP and post partial quotes...read everything I said.

She has experience with very important domestic issues. McCain has the foreign policy expertise. That is a balanced ticket.
