When you are in a tight race with your political opponent, you should not recycle a Jobs Act speech that failed to even persuade Democrats in Congress to pass your signature re-election initiative.
But that’s what the obAMATEUR did. After Bill Clinton filled the delegates with what they wanted to hear. obAMATEUR took to the stage and reduced, reused, and recycled old states of the union speeches that have failed him for four years.
It was boring. It was unoriginal. And it was filled with more empty promises. Remember, he promised to cut the deficit in half or he would be a one term pResident. Clint Eastwood’s empty chair could have given a better speech than what obAMATEUR read from the teleprompter last night. And to think he wanted to give that in a 80,000 seat stadium!
This was a safe speech you give when you have a lead. This was not a speech you give in a tight race. Don’t believe me? Here are excerpts from his past States of the Union and Jobs Act speech. Lots of platitude, lots of rhetoric, little in detail, and a lot of worn out lines that have failed him before.
Listen to these lines. This speech was unoriginal. He stacked it with straw men and ignored his own two major initiatives from the first term: Obamacare and the Stimulus.
This was a failure and you know it was because he failed to even bring up his own major initiatives. On Obamacare, he mentioned parts of it, but never defended it or referenced the “Affordable Care Act” (Affordable? Rates have risen more dramatically than they would have without obAMACARE).
His only “accomplishment”, his gold ring (at least it was a couple of years ago) and he does not mention it? He does not tout it?
As I have said before, he is fulfilling his own statement. When you have no accomplishments, no record on which to run, there is nothing to do in a campaign but attack, obfuscate and LIE! (and please velma do not write AGAIN, “you would not acknowledge the President’s accomplishments” – LIST AND DEFEND THEM).
In short, the speech was PATHETIC.
