Obama was hoping for a grand slam home run,
He may have ended up with a suicide squeeze.
One of the things I remember from my days of listening to motivational speakers, was that the 'high' from the speech rarely made it out of the parking lot. It was most certainly forgotten within a week.
To me, that's the biggest problem with Obama's speeches. Good as they may be, the feeling of elation wears off quickly and you are left trying to remember the substance. When you can't, you need another fix of the Obama magic. But it can only work so many times.
When salespeople tire of the message of one motivational speaker, they flit off to a new one. I think many who are enamored of Obama now, will eventually find the next Oprah recommended messiah to slobber over.

What will probably end up happening is people will not vote for but say they did. That way they can vote their beliefs and avoid the 'racist' label.
It's what actors do in Hollywood when they vote against their friends for an Oscar.Comment Posted By MagicalPat On 22.06.2008 @ 12:27
I find it disturbing to say the least. And isn't it odd that the one who is supposed to bring us together would remove from the seal the one phrase that means 'Unity'?Comment Posted By MagicalPat On 21.06.2008 @ 09:04
Ann Coulter is correct when she says that if you ever want to know what Democrats are up to, just look at what they're accusing you of.Comment Posted By MagicalPat On 17.12.2007 @ 02:00
Also, Vegas is one of the only places that still charges about $10 a day for internet access.Comment Posted By MagicalPat On 12.11.2007 @ 23:19
I have had this experience in Vegas too many times to count. The better hotels like the Venetian, Belagio and the Wynn do not treat guests this way. But I have always felt that most hotels in Vegas suffer from what I call 'Success Syndrome'. You, as the guest are easily replaceable, and therefore not deserving of respect. Most employees there are burnt to a crisp from the constant flood of customers, and they don't try to hide their disdain for the people who pay their salaries.Comment Posted By MagicalPat On 12.11.2007 @ 23:18
