Worried about an empty convention

"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."  
Senator Barack Obama, at the DNC in Denver,2008

On Thursday night, Barack Obama will speak at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. The liberals in the media will primarily laud his oratory skills; but the substance will go relatively unnoticed.  No matter what happens, the speech on Thursday night will be far different than in 2008. For a start, it will not be in a stadium filled with coliseum's, it will not be packed and it will be negative. He will speak for an hour and will look to destroy Mitt Romney. An amazingly, at the same time, he will ask for a second chance. 

Colossal failure since 2008

Have a look at the text of his speech (below) back in 2008 when he was a mere candidate. The room was filled with adoring people who genuinely believed the promises from 'anointed one'.  
I have inserted comments at appropriate areas from his speech; which I hope, will prove to you that he has been a miserable failure who must be defeated in November 6. It will also show, how much of an 'empty-suit' he really is and how he has hoodwinked the American people since his election.
American's are worse off under his 'leadership' and I urge everyone who watches his speech to focus on what he is saying, not how he is saying it. Focus on his record, not his smile. Focus on you, not him. This election is about you, not him. It is not about one man and his quest to fundamentally transform America; it is about making America prosper for you

{Obama} Tonight, more Americans are out of work and more are working harder for less. More of you have lost your homes and even more are watching your home values plummet. More of you have cars you can't afford to drive, credit card bills you can't afford to pay, and tuition that's beyond your reach. These challenges are not all of government's making. But the failure to respond is a direct result of a broken politics in Washington and the failed policies of George W. Bush.
Essentially you can change the name from Bush, to Barack Obama. The economy is flat, the housing market is weaker and foreclosure rates are high. If, Obama had a conscience, he would admit that he has failed. Instead he continues to blame his predecessor. 
{Obama} America, we are better than these last eight years. We are a better country than this. This country is more decent than one where a woman in Ohio, on the brink of retirement, finds herself one illness away from disaster after a lifetime of hard work. This country is more generous than one where a man in Indiana has to pack up the equipment he's worked on for twenty years and watch it shipped off to China, and then chokes up as he explains how he felt like a failure when he went home to tell his family the news.
The jobs market has got worse, Mr. President. Companies are moving overseas due to a variety of Obama polices which get in the way of prosperity.
{Obama} McCain said that the fundamentals of the economy are strong.
Obama said that the private sector is doing fine!
A nation of whiners?  
Attorney General, Eric Holder called America a ‘nation of whiners’.
{Obama} We measure progress by how many people can find a job that pays the mortgage; whether you can put a little extra money away at the end of each month so you can someday watch your child receive her college diploma. We measure progress in the 23 million new jobs that were created when Bill Clinton was President.
You can quote Clinton all you like, but the fact is there are 23 million people out of work, or, underemployed in this Obama economy.
{Obama} We measure the strength of our economy not by the number of billionaires we have or the profits of the Fortune 500, but by whether someone with a good idea can take a risk and start a new business, or whether the waitress who lives on tips can take a day off to look after a sick kid without losing her job - an economy that honors the dignity of work.
Can you say that, that has been the case? Obama has been the least friendly for job creating since he was sworn in.
{Obama} What is that promise? It's a promise that says the market should reward drive and innovation and generate growth, but that businesses should live up to their responsibilities to create American jobs, look out for American workers, and play by the rules of the road.
Obama has stood in the way of creating jobs. Unemployment has been below 8% since January 2009!!!!
{Obama} Ours is a promise that says government cannot solve all our problems, but what it should do is that which we cannot do for ourselves - protect us from harm and provide every child a decent education; keep our water clean and our toys safe; invest in new schools and new roads and new science and technology.
Stimulus package failed. Education has gotten more lousy.
{Obama} Our government should work for us, not against us. It should help us, not hurt us. It should ensure opportunity not just for those with the most money and influence, but for every American who's willing to work.
Isn’t that funny? 'ObamaCare' was passed against the will of the people. It was a cynical move by Obama, not in keeping with his 2008 promise.
{Obama} That's the promise of America - the idea that we are responsible for ourselves, but that we also rise or fall as one nation; the fundamental belief that I am my brother's keeper; I am my sister's keeper.
Obama has done brilliantly to put America into focus groups. 
{Obama} That's the promise we need to keep. That's the change we need right now. So let me spell out exactly what that change would mean if I am President. Change means a tax code that doesn't reward the lobbyists who wrote it, but the American workers and small businesses who deserve it.  

The following lobbyists have worked in the Obama administration: Eric Holder, Tom Vilsack, William Lynn, William Corr, David Hayes, Mark Patterson, Ron Klain, Mona Sutphen, Melody Barnes, Cecilia Munoz, Patrick Gaspard & Michael Strautmanis.
In addition the Tax Code hasn’t changed.

{Obama} Unlike John McCain, I will stop giving tax breaks to corporations that ship jobs overseas, and I will start giving them to companies that create good jobs right here in America.
Remember Solyndra??
{Obama} I will eliminate capital gains taxes for the small businesses and the start-ups that will create the high-wage, high-tech jobs of tomorrow.
Didn’t happen!
{Obama} I will cut taxes - cut taxes - for 95% of all working families. Because in an economy like this, the last thing we should do is raise taxes on the middle-class.
ObamaCare and with the expiration of Bush tax cuts will increase taxes. The stimulus plan, is where the tax rebate was arranged, hasn’t lowered unemployment.
{Obama} And for the sake of our economy, our security, and the future of our planet, I will set a clear goal as President: in ten years, we will finally end our dependence on oil from the Middle East. Washington's been talking about our oil addiction for the last thirty years, and John McCain has been there for twenty-six of them. In that time, he's said no to higher fuel-efficiency standards for cars, no to investments in renewable energy, no to renewable fuels. And today, we import triple the amount of oil as the day that Senator McCain took office.Now is the time to end this addiction, and to understand that drilling is a stop-gap measure, not a long-term solution. Not even close.As President, I will tap our natural gas reserves, invest in clean coal technology, and find ways to safely harness nuclear power. I'll help our auto companies re-tool, so that the fuel-efficient cars of the future are built right here in America. I'll make it easier for the American people to afford these new cars. And I'll invest 150 billion dollars over the next decade in affordable, renewable sources of energy - wind power and solar power and the next generation of biofuels; an investment that will lead to new industries and five million new jobs that pay well and can't ever be outsourced.
We are further away now, than ever in gaining energy independence. Obama has stood in the way of coal and drilling for oil due to his infatuation with the environmental lobby.
{Obama} America, now is not the time for small plans. Now is the time to finally meet our moral obligation to provide every child a world-class education, because it will take nothing less to compete in the global economy. Michelle and I are only here tonight because we were given a chance at an education. And I will not settle for an America where some kids don't have that chance. I'll invest in early childhood education. I'll recruit an army of new teachers, and pay them higher salaries and give them more support. And in exchange, I'll ask for higher standards and more accountability. And we will keep our promise to every young American - if you commit to serving your community or your country, we will make sure you can afford a college education.
Notice how he said: “I'll recruit an army of new teachers, and pay them higher salaries and give them more support. And in exchange, I'll ask for higher standards and more accountability.” Surely you should be asking for performance related pay. He is indebted to the unions on this one and is bankrupting the future of America.
{Obama} Now is the time to finally keep the promise of affordable, accessible health care for every single American. If you have health care, my plan will lower your premiums. If you don't, you'll be able to get the same kind of coverage that members of Congress give themselves. And as someone who watched my mother argue with insurance companies while she lay in bed dying of cancer, I will make certain those companies stop discriminating against those who are sick and need care the most.
‘ObamaCare’ hasn’t lowered premiums, nor increased quality of car has resulted in doctors leaving the profession.
{Obama} Now is the time to change our bankruptcy laws, so that your pensions are protected ahead of CEO bonuses; and the time to protect Social Security for future generations.
Auto Bailout helped Union pensions. Social Security is crumbling.
{Obama} 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.
Did you see the stimulus package? It was full of items which should’ve been eliminated.
{Obama} And just as we keep our keep our promise to the next generation here at home, so must we keep America's promise abroad. If John McCain wants to have a debate about who has the temperament, and judgment, to serve as the next Commander-in-Chief, that's a debate I'm ready to have.
For while Senator McCain was turning his sights to Iraq just days after 9/11, I stood up and opposed this war, knowing that it would distract us from the real threats we face. When John McCain said we could just "muddle through" in Afghanistan, I argued for more resources and more troops to finish the fight against the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11, and made clear that we must take out Osama bin Laden and his lieutenants if we have them in our sights. John McCain likes to say that he'll follow bin Laden to the Gates of Hell - but he won't even go to the cave where he lives.
And today, as my call for a time frame to remove our troops from Iraq has been echoed by the Iraqi government and even the Bush Administration, even after we learned that Iraq has a $79 billion surplus while we're wallowing in deficits, John McCain stands alone in his stubborn refusal to end a misguided war.
Obama inherited a good situation in Iraq. He merely had to administer the withdrawal.
{Obama} We are the party of Roosevelt. We are the party of Kennedy. So don't tell me that Democrats won't defend this country. Don't tell me that Democrats won't keep us safe. The Bush-McCain foreign policy has squandered the legacy that generations of Americans -- Democrats and Republicans - have built, and we are here to restore that legacy.
Obama is hated more than Bush accordingly to the Arab World.
{Obama} As Commander-in-Chief, I will never hesitate to defend this nation, but I will only send our troops into harm's way with a clear mission and a sacred commitment to give them the equipment they need in battle and the care and benefits they deserve when they come home.
Lead from behind in Libya. Didn’t support green revolution of Iran in 2009.
{Obama} I will end this war in Iraq responsibly, and finish the fight against al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan. I will rebuild our military to meet future conflicts. But I will also renew the tough, direct diplomacy that can prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons and curb Russian aggression.
Russia and China own America on the world stage at the moment. Obama has made America subservient to UN and it’s Human Rights Council.
{Obama} I will build new partnerships to defeat the threats of the 21st century: terrorism and nuclear proliferation
Iran are closer to having a bomb.
{Obama} poverty and genocide; climate change and disease. And I will restore our moral standing, so that America is once again that last, best hope for all who are called to the cause of freedom, who long for lives of peace, and who yearn for a better future.But what I will not do is suggest that the Senator takes his positions for political purposes. Because one of the things that we have to change in our politics is the idea that people cannot disagree without challenging each other's character and patriotism.
Obama doesn’t accept opposing views in his White House, especially a Republican one.
{Obama} America, our work will not be easy. The challenges we face require tough choices, and Democrats as well as Republicans will need to cast off the worn-out ideas and politics of the past. For part of what has been lost these past eight years can't just be measured by lost wages or bigger trade deficits. What has also been lost is our sense of common purpose - our sense of higher purpose. And that's what we have to restore.
Obama hasn’t been bi-partisan, nor deviated from his liberal ideology.
{Obama} Passions fly on immigration, but I don't know anyone who benefits when a mother is separated from her infant child or an employer undercuts American wages by hiring illegal workers. This too is part of America's promise - the promise of a democracy where we can find the strength and grace to bridge divides and unite in common effort.
Failure to propose comprehensive immigration reform, without pet projects would be a start. The DREAM Act would’ve been a Trojan horse for all sorts of liberal pork spending.
{Obama} 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.
President Obama has called Romney a felon, murdering tax cheat!
Thank you, God Bless you, and God Bless the United States of America.
