Well, Senator Obama's speech certainly is stunning

As I type this, I am listening to Senator Obama give his acceptance speech.

It is stunning. It is audacious. It lifts word-for-word and paragraph-by-paragraph from Senator Clinton's stump speech. When Senator Clinton is not being quoted directly (without attribution), almost every idea Senator Clinton advanced during her campaign.

It would be one thing if Senator Obama had been quoting Senator Clinton with attribution and using her ideas throughout the primary season. Then, this speech would not be stunningly breathtakingly audacious. It would be a speech given by the person who would have been the better person to run against John McCain, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton; possibly it would have been given by Senator Clinton's running mate, who might have been Senator Obama. And it would have been a speech that would have been not only inspiring but more importantly credible.

I was just thinking the same thing and about to blog it. For this the Democratic Party kicked Hillary to the curb, so we could have this anti-democratic narcissist be the nominee and run on her work and her words? I think I'm going to be sick.

What else could he have done? He hasn't had an original idea throughout the entire primary fraud. Thank you for watching it and reporting on it. I couldn't stomach watching the entire thing. This is the first time in my life that I have not watched the acceptance speech of the nominee in its entirety.

That is no surprise, I would listen to him or his surrogates, during the campaign, and they were a week delay replay of Hillary. I was afraid he might want her as VP just so he could keep using her ideas. Thank goodness he didn't, that makes it easier to pummel him until NOv. It would have been harder with Hillary on the ticket. I have to say that was one of the worse mistakes he has made. He had a means of protecting himself, and he blew it. Good.

I may be sorry about my candidate being out, but becoming a PUMA had to do with the insult to my intelligence of cramming Obama down my throat even after it became obvious who and what he was.

NOw it is time to finish what most of us started out to do, stop Obama from doing to the country what he did to his Ill.district. Then it is on to the Dem. party, or better yet, a new party build on ideas and tenets that will not lead us back here, again.

For months I could not decide if the DNC thought they could win with Obama , or they were taking a dive for the GOP, just like they do in congress, only on a grander scale....now I think it's the later...in that they obeyed the GOP/Wall St. order: " No Clinton ". The DNC would much , much rather lose to McCain than win with Hillary....that is plain to see in every move they made. Even if Obama goes down in defeat, we are left with a completely corrupt Democratic party , at least from the middle and up ...so what to do?

Agreed! It sounded like everything I've heard from Sen. Clinton the entire year but it's the first time I've ever heard Obama actually discuss the issues and not focus on hope and change. The only thing this guy knows how to do is read plagiarized speeches.

Enjoyed listening to you on my 2 cents blog talk radio. I look forward new directions for the PUMA movement between now and November and after November.

I totally agree, the ownership society quote. The stories of those he met "on the road" who he'll "never forget" etc. etc....

It was like a long long version of both Clinton's speeches, really.

Heavy on platiudes, light on specifics. I found myself asking: "How are you gonna pay for that?" more than once.

With Hill, we would have known.

IF he wins he better pray the Senate reaches that magic 60, he's gonna need it. Sigh.

I'm with janicen,
Thank you for watching it and telling me about it! I could not bare to see him gloat or see Hillary humiliated another min. As I hit the off button on the TV I wondered how many Americans would do the same thing?
It wasn't the best thing to do as we are taught to keep our enemies close to us.
Once again this shows how The Denver Group came through for the better of our country!
Prayers and Blessings*

These and the other comments you made on My Two Cents last night were great.

warrior princess -

I would add that Obama not only did 'week delays' of Hillary, but also 'weak delays" i.e. his proposals were similar to hers, but altered in such a way as to be less progressive, less implementable, and less effective.
It's unfortunate that the MSM didn't do it's (supposed) job and point this out...but then, all things considered, if they had, would it have mattered?
