Well, it is finally over. The week that was "supposed to revolutionize Americans' way of thinking." I guess I should say that I have heard all of the speeches and watched all the public opinion clips and say that I have gone left of the line, but it just has not happened. I watched the majority of the DNC and I guess I have a few thoughts that I have come to the conclusion too.
1. Democrats don't care what freedoms they have to give up providing that it is not to a Republican or anyone that sides with Bush.
In other words to them it is okay to hand over all of your medical records and medical history to the government providing you get better health care.
2. Senator Biden's statements about his expertise in foreign policy is just ludicrous. What does a senator from Delaware no about Russia's aggression towards Georgia? Not to mention his numerous mistakes in interview in the last year about the war in Iraq.
3. Why is the grand daughter of Republican President Eisenhower speaking? Who cares?
4. Regarding Sen. Obama's acceptance speech it was impressively charismatic. McCain can not match that. However, his comments about changing everything (Don't fool yourself in thinking he is just referring to economy either) may have alienated himself from middle-of-the-raoders. He made a lot of campaign promises that are impossible to keep without the taxing the bejeebees off of us (i.e. health care that rivals the government's care, higher wages for everyone, natural fuel, and even his buildup of military weaponry.) As far as his pot shot at Sen. McCain about "country first", hey I think you could clear a lot up if you would wave a flag once in a while. The last statement he made about scripture saying hold onto the hope that we confess. Way out of context unless he really thinks he is the anointed one or the Messiah.
