He did a terrible job! And he’s had all of this time out of the limelight to work on such a speech. And someone needs to tell him to stop with the full toothed phony grin.
He is capable of doing better. Some weeks ago, I watched him give a speech — can’t remember where — and he looked good and his delivery was good.
Obama just has it all over him in the charisma department. It really doesn’t matter what Obummer says; he just sounds so darned good. I keep hearing people say that McCain’s going to really put it to BHO in the debates, but how many people really watch the debates. Yes, most FReepers will, but we are political junkies. And most voters are not.
Yes! I'm sorry to say it, but McCain's "full toothed phony grin" really turned my stomach... really makes him look old and creepy. And I'll be voting for him this fall. How many fence-sitters/undecideds will also be creeped out and go for Obama's style over McCain's substance? (Well, the best "substance" we've got among the candidates, I guess...)
