Isn’t it funny that four years into his presidency, Obama has said so little that is memorable. Indeed, other than his occasional malapropisms or mistaken forays into speaking off the cuff, much of it is meaningless banality, false choices, and other rhetorical tricks that wouldn’t make it past an average high school debater.
Bush for all his alleged stupidity and crudeness at least had a clear message: we will get the terrorists. Everyone knew where he stood. But where does Obama really stand? And when he does take a stand–for nationalized health care for example–what does he say that ever persuades anyone that doesn’t already agree with him?
I should think Romney or Santorum will wipe the floor with this guy and his crummy record come the Fall. He outmatched the dull John McCain, but both of the GOP’s guys, to their credit, have some fire the belly about the all-out assault on our freedoms undertaken by Obama. I could be overly optimistic, but I don’t see working class whites breaking for Obama, and they are the undecided voters, as much as that chagrins our ruling class.
