It's like a remake of "The Day the Earth Stood Still"..

By “direct conversation” I'm expecting to see and hear a 75,000 strong ‘Amen Chorus’ comin’ in with responses to BHO’s cadenced sermon.

The world as the media knows it will stop tonight for a few minutes and focus on.. an empty suit and some hair plugs.. or so they hope.

If he actually told people exactly what he would do, he’d loose in a landslide.
The trick for dems is to convince people they wouldn’t do what we say they would.
Barry, tell the people what a command economy would mean.

I just want President Bush to hold a press conference at about 10:08pm Thursday to talk to the American people about “stuff”, you know, like “How are y’all?” , “Watcha doin’ this weekend?” and maybe “See any good movies lately?”. You know, stuff like that.

It reminds me of “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” a little when the aliens come out to make contact with humans face-to-face.

“Obama aides say speech will be ‘direct conversation’”

Yeah? Well, I ain’t talkin’, and I most certainly ain’t listening, fool.

Be assured, if he’s elected he’ll make quite a difference in all of our lives.

Talk about your Close Encounters.. with the likes of Ayres , Rezko, .. pretty reptilian type characters..

Who knows,, one more reason to have this event at a mile high for the big stuff?

It would explain a lot. The Messiah visited Live by the
Ancient Ones and blessed... wow.

The dems would still manage to make the event a yawner somehow.

Maybe he could do a Gustav preparedness news conference. Just to let everyone know that they’re on top of things. Outline all the plans and emergency guidelines that have already been put in place. They’d have to cover that.

My hubby said he heard on Fox that Obama will not be using a teleprompter. Reading it, I guess.

If there is one thing we can be sure of, it's that Obama will not be delivery this speech tonight without a teleprompter...his direct “conversation” will be with trusty teleprompter not the American people. From the photos of the stadium there will be only two- left and right- I don't see a third one in the center. But I guess his eyes are so shifty anyway that a third one dead center wouldn't be very helpful.

The only conversation I’m interested in having with this pretender is him telling me how he is going to resign in the Senate and go back to being a hack in the Illinois legislature.
