Obama not the Messiah... Narcissus perhaps

Obama's appearance last night framed by what looked like a set from Greek Mythology either demonstrates his hubris or his campaign's lack of understanding when it comes to what voters want in a leader. Obama gets an A+ for showmanship and solidifies his reputation as the "celebrity"/"rock star" candidate. As for the speech... well delivered, but a recyle of standard talking points... the usual laundry list of "bribes" promised by Democrats to voters. There isn't a problem that government won't solve for you is the continued mantra of Democrats and repeated by Obama.

The best part of Obama's speech last night was his "agreement" to debate McCain on foreign policy... let's see if he has the integrity to follow through on this challenge since he has ducked this for weeks.
