As much as I have hated Slate recently, this blog pointed out a few of the reasons why I just cannot understand why Americans are so in love with Barack Obama these days. Maybe it is just me, but I can’t stand arrogance, particularly when there is so little substantive policy to back it up. My favorite part of the article, is they guy that decided that he was voting for Obama because he “saw him.” That sounds like a great reason to elect someone, particularly the person who is going to be chiefly responsible for digging our nation out of the deep hole created in the past eight years. But hey, who am I to value substance?
New Hampshire is totally going the way of Iowa and is going to vote overwhelmingly for Obama on Tuesday. After watching the debate last night, I just want to ask each person who is voting for him why? He sounds great in scripted speeches, but of the four major candidates last night, he was the least articulate and the least specific about much of anything (except in being quite specific in supporting his prior position that he has no problem with violating the sovereignty of another nation and invading Pakistan without that country’s permission).
