Look at the young man’s woman’s surprised look, what did he day, did I think I heard what I thought I heard?
He must be really fired up, he is using his left arm to point.
Did he say something like, McCain is out of touch (old, senile) or he has so many houses, he must be a bad guy.
Oh geez, he mentioned my voting record, he got me, what do I say now?
Notice my grey hair, not grey during the primaries, grey after, not grey during the convention speech (lotta eyeballs), grey again after the convention. No one noticed (the change). Notice the fear in the right eye and anger in the left? Hope not. Notice I am wearing a pin, not wearing one, then wearing one. Hope people noticed the change. (Notice how often he makes a point with his non dominant right hand; he is left handed. Left/right brain hemisphere confusion? )
Now I mean it. Well, if it works I do, otherwise, I’ll just say “uh”, “well, you know”. If none of that works I’ll just emote anger, while I am on the stump, but not when I am being interviewed- I’ll play it cool, speak many words, well put together but say essentially nothing.
Clear as mud.
Down in amongst people.
real close to the people
I am lefty and I know what I stand for. (Calm, determined, clear)
Underdogs before victory:
Changed: after Keating 5, after 5&1/2 years as a prisoner of war, after saying no to torture, after questioning Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, after being smeared/lied about in the 2000 SC Republican Primary, after he was left for dead in the 2008 presidential race, finance campaign reform.
Not changed when the people who stold money from investors and clients in the billion dollar scam and economists argued about the bailout, when he said the fundamentals are strong. Anybody seen the sky fall in lately? Gas prices the same. Lobbyists for Wall Street and clients the same. New York will not loose as much income and business tax revenue as they expected.
HOPE in all the hard working people of the US, in objectivity from the media, that includes YOU, bloggers, that the political, financial mess the country is in, by all peoples’ actions large and small can be managed and led out of by strength, experience, knowledge, steadiness, keeping your powder dry under fire.
Stockholders, pension and mutual fund managers, Investors, boards, executive leaders of companies complied with or made decisions to pump the bottom line, send labor overseas to cheaper and cheaper labor in more and more countries, to make a bigger buck. Lower and lost wages has been going on for 20 years. The chickens have come home to roost; the econony of loosing buying power by people who pay the same amount in taxes with less disposable income, powering an economy that relies on them spending, doing so with greater and greater credit versus income has fallen flat on its face.
John McCain did not make all these individuals do what they did.
You want change, you want hope? Look in the mirror, then look at McCain, then lookat Obama. One will encourage you with faith in yourself and lead. One will will encourage you to have blind faith in him and step in to the unknown behind him, to heavens knows what, with heavens knows how much more deficit spending.
Your vote has the power to change specifically the way the Democratic Party has run itself, the power to hope that your vote will not rubber stamp Obama’s selection by paid, some not paid, Super Delegates.
