McCain Campaign on Obama's Barackopolis Speech

My friends at McCainVictory08 took time out from packing for the convention to share some reality-checks from the McCain campaign on The Greatest Speech Ever In Greece, er, America. I won't reprint the whole thing here but the summary from the campaign follows:

"Tonight, Americans witnessed a misleading speech that was so fundamentally at odds with the meager record of Barack Obama. When the temple comes down, the fireworks end, and the words are over, the facts remain: Senator Obama still has no record of bipartisanship, still opposes offshore drilling, still voted to raise taxes on those making just $42,000 per year, and still voted against funds for American troops in harm's way. The fact remains: Barack Obama is still not ready to be President." - Tucker Bounds, McCain spokesman

Time will tell which Obama story the American people will believe: the vast promises of what he will do, or the contradictory, and rather frightening, facts of what he already has done - and left undone.

Obama's speech was nothing but platitude, attack, platitude, attack. As usual, he offered nothing in the way of substantive solutions. Instead, when he did say what he wanted as opposed to what he was against, he offered something obvious, such as "energy independence" (in 10 years, no less), or that he would get bin Laden. Who doesn't want this?! But how is he going to achieve it? He never got beyond the platitudes. used the old phrase "Where's the beef?" to describe his speech. Very fitting.
