    Unless you live in a vacuum (or like most lpsg members, were getting a bj), did you see that Obama speech last night? No one... let me say this again, NO ONE can energize a group like Obama. McCain were you watching?

    Then I turned on the McCain speech this morning.... the same tired, old conversation. You could hear a pin drop. Hell, I almost fell asleep.

    How does McCain intend to compete with the Obamania? They said it would die out, but it hasn't even begun to fade.

    funny you mention that. he is a very inspirational speaker. for a minute i thought i was watching magic johnson a 1987 LA lakers fastbreak , the way the crowd was reacting. definately was a special night last night. i got goosebumps. he's definately got a gift. i saw mccain's speech last night too. boring. when you look into his eyes it's like he doesnt have a soul

    lol I love it when you talk demonising!

    But I do agree. McCain seems a little unsteady: on his feet and in his talks as well.

    Did you notice that Obama gave his speech in the same venue that the GOP is having their convention at this year? Obama is going after McCain. McCain will not be dictating the conversation.

    I saw an unofficial/non-scientific poll from CNN (I believe)... they wanted Internet users to vote for McCain's VP choice. JEB BUSH is in first place so far! LMAO. My God, what a gift if McCain is that stupid to take Jeb; they won't win a single State.

    McCain was just appalling. He sounded like a hearse driver.
    Obama, on the other hand, was crisp, thrilling, enlivening. He pulled you right into his space.
    I wonder if McCain is just starting to really age ... as though he just ain't gonna do as well, as the years pass by, as his mother Roberta has done.

    Presentation and delivery aside, the thing that really struck me about McCain's speech was his lack of an affirmative delivery. Ostensibly, that speech was intended to be his official opening salvo of the interparty contest for the White House...yet the only quasi-clear message I got from him was that he wasn't GWB, and he wasn't Barack Obama. There was no sense of who John McCain is.

    Anyone with L/D experience will tell you that's not a good sign. The advantage of going first works for the affirmative because he's allowed to shape and scope the nature of the debate. McCain completely failed to do that, spending all his time counter-punching two strawmen of his own construction.

    And co-opting Barack Obama's campaign meme of change we can believe in? In addition to just signaling a pathetic dearth of creativity in his own campaign staff, it's another indication that he's running against Obama, while lacking any real identity of his own.

    He (McCain) Doesn't Need To Compete With Obama Necessarily, He's Already Got His Built In Audience...Prepped And Just Waiting To Do What They're Bred To Do...Organize And Vote...And Unfortunately For The Party Of The Donkey Organization And Unification Has Never Been One Of Our Strong Points... as seen over the course of this ridiculous campaign battle...And No Energizing Speech Will Change That...at least not soon enough for a "change"...

    Apparently you haven't watched an NSYNC concert. :biggrin1:
    But I digress... It was impressive to say the least. Almost a bit frightening at some points. The last time I was in a group that large with that kind of energy, half of the crowd was on drugs and dancing to techno.

    McCain keeps shooting himself in the foot and putting his foot in his mouth. It's only a matter of time until he does it the other way around, and his words and actions really fuck him over.

    Pffft...what sort of cheap whore do you take me for? That information is worth at least a full denarius.

    Lincoln / Douglas debate, Rubester.

    McCain has had no challenge in his party's nomination, he walked away with it early. On the other hand, you have Democrats that edged each other out, the loser looking to parlay her loss into a spot on the ticket as the VP. Yet during the race she painted her potential new boss as unfit, not ready. Yeah that'll work ?

    How long does anyone think Cheney would've kept his VP had he made such statements about "W" in 2000 or even during the administrations ? These two Democrats present a formidable opponent as a duo, they can pull their race and gender cards out over the next 5 months every time they debate McCain, and McCain will be like Edwards on stage ? So what does that indicate ? Possibly it polarizes America even more into a divide on race and gender ?

    You know, people debating Obama vs. Clinton made it about race and gender far more often than either of them ever did. They're both too professional (yes, even Cybil Clinton) to explicitly make it an issue beyond appeal to their groups simply by association.
