Did he promise a broad? to whom?

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Oh don't be silly Sue, you know line by line is only illegal for republicans.

JM Hanes

"Now, many of these plans will cost money, which is why I've laid out how I'll pay for every dime - by closing corporate loopholes and tax havens that don't help America grow. But I will also go through the federal budget, line by line, eliminating programs that no longer work and making the ones we do need work better and cost less - because we cannot meet twenty-first century challenges with a twentieth century bureaucracy."

Sorry, but that's not new politics, it's the oldest canard in the book.

centralcal

Well, he's ready to have a debate.

Glory, glory, halleuiah.

Jane

Uh barack, you are afraid to debate John McCain, remember?

centralcal

This war is distracting us from the real threat we face.

uh huh!

Ann

Barb,

Join the party. We need the reinforcement.

I don't think this grand stage is helping him.
It looks like he is in a cube. (They also forgot the makeup on the ears..bat wings are back) Sorry, he is making me very ill.

JM Hanes

Pretty funny if we find Obama at the local Holiday Inn Express and not a cave.

Sue

Blood thirsty all of the sudden?

Sara (Pal2Pal)

OMG, is he questioning McCain's bravery? Them's fightin' words.

centralcal

We are wallowing in deficit . . .

wallowing, I say. wallowing.

MayBee

JMH- he is going to use a magic pen

SukieTawdry

Oh, oh, he just said he's willing to have a debate with JMc about judgement and leadership. He said it! Bring it on, Obambi...

Mud wrestling?

MayBee

Kennedy defending the country and keeping us safe?????

Jane

You are the party of surrender, and general Betrayus, and the surge won't work.

Sue

Is it clear yet why this fool doesn't want to debate McCain?

FDR, Kennedy? My God. Talk about dragging out the old fellers. What about Clinton? Carter? Did he forget them?

JM Hanes

Ann: They probably decided to move the columns off camera to avoid the ridicule, and substituted some lawyer's idea of a shoji screen effect. I'd bet money that the mullioned backdrop was a last minute addition.

bad

Obama's gonna HEAL ME!!!!

Glory hallelujah

SukieTawdry

"Don't tell me [Democrats] won't fight for this country!"

Hey, Barack, Democrats won't fight for this country.

MayBee

Wasn't he the guy that was going to turn Iraqis over to genocidal gangs bombing hospitals?

hit and run

If only McCain's ad this evening (still time Team McCain? get to it) was to accept Obama's invitation to debate on foreign policy ... say ... tomorrow! Town hall.

MayBee

Do CinCs really whine about people challenging their patriotism?
Dems really seem to get off on that.

bad

Biden's wife looks scared.

Sue

Anyone ever attend an old fashioned tent revival? Obama would have done well when they passed the collection plate.

RichatUF

Rick-

I ran the numbers with 2.6% average and got 50.7 and 45.7. The inflation number is going to bump up a bit though. His forecast for Q3 is 2.8%.

SukieTawdry

Thinly veiled accusation that McCain is impugning his patriotism. Followed by some real tough talk that, sorry, just doesn't ring true.

kim

Meanwhile, Kurtz is going through the CAC budget, line-by-line. That will bring up another ad idea. Did you, Barack Hussein Obama, go through the Annenberg Challenge budget line-by-line?
=============================

hit and run

Forget Obama's "patriotism" line....he's trying to keep people from questioning his CHARACTER.

WE QUESTION YOUR CHARACTER.

No matter how many flag pins you wear and how many doofuses you can cajole to call in to a radio station.

Dumbass

MayBee

I am pro gay marriage, but I have a question.

Are there really places in the US where a hospital won't let the gay lover into the hospital room?

bad

I always want something larger and firmer..

Sue

He isn't saying this. He really isn't saying this.

MayBee

There it is, the line I've been waiting for. People didn't know if they should applaud it or not.

hit and run

Cynicism!!!!!


Dumbass

bad

Chris Matthews leg is stirring.

Jane

Are there really places in the US where a hospital won't let the gay lover into the hospital room?

NO

JM Hanes

How long has he been talking?

centralcal

Yes, he said it.

Jane

He has the exact same position on gay marriage as McCain and the gays should wake up.

RichatUF

He looks a bit angry this evening. I see that he also got the right ethnic balance at the bottom of the stage.

hit and run

JMH, I was about to ask the same thing!

1 hour 49 minutes is my guess

bad

Yeah I seen it...

SukieTawdry

I think we're wrapping up. Man, this one really stunk up the place. Can't wait to hear the media gush. That tingle running up Chrissy's leg must be close to hitting paydirt by now.

This election is not about Barack.

hit and run

1 hour 49 minutes is my guess

...or not guessing, it's been six beers.

Literally! I am not being facetious!

centralcal

omg - he's smiling when he talks about a soldier losing his limb, or a hurricane destroying a city. ick.

Jane

He just uses so many words to say absolutely nothing.

Ann

JMH,

I agree. I also think this is turning into another Wellstone funeral rally without the balloons. Speaking of rally, he just said Tally bon again.

OK, this is not about him. gag me! He really should of stuck with Hope, Change, and I am the one we have been waiting for.

MayBee

Sara- you are right about the UAW. That's also why new companies don't rush to Michigan.

bad

My daughter is transfixed on his ears.

MayBee

He said "inextricably linked" the way I would say it. All inextribleilinked.

SukieTawdry

When in doubt, always finish with MLK.

The background, BTW, is really terrible.

America, we can not turn back.

bad

6 moments

Jane

Thank god it's over.

bad

4 "now is the time"

MayBee

Go fireworks go

hit and run

bad:

She got more out of it than I did, listening to his words.

SukieTawdry

Okay, where's the confetti, where's the fireworks

Good grief, Bret Hume is gushing.

RichatUF

The promise...45 years ago today...young preacher from Georgia tell his dream...cities to rebuild and farms to save

I missed most of the speech. But he did end with God Bless the United States of America.

Interesting bit with some country music at the end.

bad

What a steaming pile.

JM Hanes

Well, at least he hasn't figured out how to pile Churchill atop that heap of of charismatic figures he seems to think he represents.

kim

They bought a pig in a poke.
==================

Sara (Pal2Pal)

My son is livid. Playing Brookes and Dunn "Only in America." B&D are supposed to perform at the Repubs next week.

laura

bad
best laugh all night

MayBee

What is Bob Herbert going to say about those white spurts coming out of the columns?

SWarren

The windows background is distracting. Is he supposed to be standing in the Oval Office?

RichatUF

Yeah!!!! It's Fire Marshall Biden

bad

Thanks laura

Tell W hey for me.

hit and run

Keep coming fireworks!

We need more fireworks!

All fireworks! All fireworks should be going!

What the f*** is going on up there? I need all fireworks! All fireworks go!!!

Jim

So, how was the speech (I opted for Gilligan's Island reruns)? Is it likely to bounce him with the Undecided?

JM Hanes

Hillary needs to lend him the stocking she pulled all those goodies out of in her Christmas message.

Jeez, is that music ominous or what?

SukieTawdry

Are you believing this? Seriously.

hit and run

Sara:

We were friends of a friend of Brooks and Dunn when we were in Nashville. Interesting. Must see what she says!

Porchlight

He has the exact same position on gay marriage as McCain and the gays should wake up.


No Jane, gay Dems secretly "know" that his official position is just for show, to win over the rubes. Just like Atheists for Barack secretly "know" he doesn't really believe in any of that God stuff he's always talking about. The Dems are experts at stealth.

IIRC Bush got 40% of the gay vote in 2004. It's not as monolithic as people think.

Sue

Did the money run out when it came time for fireworks?

PaulL

****Are there really places in the US where a hospital won't let the gay lover into the hospital room?****

Yes, in the minds of TV writers. It's a staple situation for every medical series.

bad

I got it!! The windows are the West Wing ground floor.

MayBee

This is the music that's usually playing when I'm putting away my Kleenex and sniffling my way out of the movie theater.

Is it the theme to The Champ?

glenda waggoner

Pheh!!!
Can McCain keep Cheney?

Jane

I hate to be mean (no I don't) but Michelle Obama has reverse buck teeth.

bad

Are they doing a freaking encore?

bad

Maybe my kid just said it was from Pearl Harbor.

SukieTawdry

My jaw is hanging open...

MayBee

Don't be happy, worry.

Sue

You know, in a way I'm happy for him. If he wasn't such a fool. What a great day for Americans. I just wish it had been a conservative that broke that barrier.

JM Hanes

The thing that actually saddens me, is that assuming he loses, racism will surely be decried as the culprit, and it will be just that much harder for someone like Harold Ford to run because it will be considered too risky. I think the Dems may actually be turning the clock back by nominating such a hopelessly inexperienced black candidate.

MayBee

Does anyone else love Ann Althouse's liveblogs?

hit and run

I used to office at I-25 and I-225 in Denver....taking in 4th of July shows on a balcony at that place going on across Denver were much more impressive.

But hey, he was clean and articulate...who needs fireworks?

Elliott

Jeez, is that music ominous or what?

This last 75 minutes has been surreal. As far as the music, I think they are going for the epic, heroic film type stuff. Sort of what TM suggested yesterday.

SukieTawdry

Wow, Juan Williams just called it "not quite satisfying"--not good

Sue

JMH,

Exactly. That was my same worry about Hillary. She would make it almost impossible for another woman to be president. Not because she is a woman, but because she is the wrong woman. Same with Obama. He is the wrong black man for the job. A moderate black man would have rocked!

Jim

It will be a great day when we it becomes obvious that a person can be nominated for President without his skin color having played a role.

This day will be come when person of color is nominated without any help from his skin color.

MayBee

JMH- you have a great point. Did you see Corey Booker being interviewed today? I just kept thinking, they've got the wrong guy. They've chosen the guy that unsealed divorce documents all the way to the nomination.

SukieTawdry

Bill Kristol is not quite effusive, but almost.

hit and run

Nancy says, "Convention is adjourned!"

Amen.

Ann

Nancy has on her Pajamas.

SukieTawdry

The blond chick is unimpressed.

Jane

Geez Kristol loved it and Juan Williams and nina Easton thought he blew it. The world has been turned on its ear.

Elliott

Lots of emphasis on education...

MayBee

I just want to reprint this line, sure to be my favorite for way too long:

. Because if you don’t have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare the voters. If you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from.

SukieTawdry

Fred says same old, same old.

FOX needs some new all-stars.
