An In Touch Speech

With a speech so decorated and captivating, John McCain proved once again why he should be the next President. However, Barack Obama said this morning that John McCain’s speech was “out of touch” with America. I was left scratching my head. Did he watch the same speech I did?

John McCain: “I don’t work for a party, I don’t work for a special interest, I don’t work for myself, I work for you….I’ve fought corruption, and it didn’t matter if the culprits were democrats or Republicans…I've fought big spenders in both parties…I've fought to get million-dollar checks out of our elections… I've fought lobbyists who stole from Indian tribes… I fought crooked deals in the Pentagon... I fought tobacco companies and trial lawyers, drug companies and union bosses.”

So far so good, seems to be what America is looking for. Maybe it happened later.

“We believe in low taxes, spending discipline and open markets. We believe in rewarding hard work and risk takers and letting people keep the fruits of their labor. We believe in a strong defense, work, faith, service, a culture of life, personal responsibility, the rule of law, and judges who dispense justice impartially and don't legislate from the bench. We believe in the values of families, neighborhoods and communities. We believe in a government that unleashes the creativity and initiative of Americans. Government that doesn't make your choices for you, but works to make sure you have more choices to make for yourself.”

Not there either. It must be at the end.

“Fight for what's right for our country: Fight for the ideals and character of a free people. Fight for our children's future. Fight for justice and opportunity for all. Stand up to defend our country from its enemies. Stand up for each other; for beautiful, blessed, bountiful America. Stand up, stand up, stand up and fight. Nothing is inevitable here. We're Americans, and we never give up. We never quit. We never hide from history. We make history.”

That seems pretty in touch to me. There is only one logical explanation:

It is Obama who is out of touch with the American people.

Newsflash Barack: John McCain is in touch with the American people because he knows what the American people want. American’s want to know: who they are voting for, what he has done, and what he will do. This is exactly why McCain spent a great deal of time explaining his past in the military, as a POW and Senator, and the specifics on what he plans to do when elected.

Honestly people, sit back and think for a second. Aside from Obama’s charm, personality, and overall likeability, why would you even consider voting for him? We all want “Change” but does Obama bring more change that McCain? The only change Obama would bring is the least experienced person ever to become President, not to mention a voting record where he failed to make a tough decision 130 times and never once did he introduce a major piece of legislation.

Let’s face it. McCain has the perfect amount of experience to be President. He is a Maverick, a Hero, a Father, a Son, and most importantly a Leader. Beware Barack; the voters will one day realize that you have no executive experience, courage, valor, or voting record to be president. And that is why, come November, I am confident that the American people will make the intelligent decision to elect John McCain as President.

Big Mac's speech was plain-spoken mostly, but it was as earnest and idealistic an acceptance speech as I've ever heard. And filled with terrific moments:

"Change is coming!"
"Americans want us to stop yelling at each other."
"I was never my own man again. I was my country's man."

And that FIREWORKS FINALE, as passionate and even oratorically luminous as I've ever seen him be.

This is a REFORM ticket, and McCain and Palin are going into battle as AGENTS OF CHANGE.

That's what America needs. And I think -- I KNOW -- that Big Mac and Sarah Palin are WAY more credible as CHANGE AGENTS than are the Other Guys.

So, how do I know that Big Mac & Sarah "Read My Lipstick" are ahead now and on a roll ?

1.BHO and Joe Biden are sounding MUCH more NEGATIVE On the stump.
Going negative is what you do when you're behind. They're behind, and they know it.

2.The Left has become even more apoplectic than before, as apoplectic as they sounded during 2006 when Iraq looked to be failing. Apoplectic in politics is almost always the tone of a losing effort by those who know they're losing.

3.Big Mac's speech was seen by 39 million viewers. MORE than watched HO's acceptance speech.

39 million for Big Mac, 37.6 million for Sarah. Those are HUGE numbers. Big Mac has done it. He has mobilized a huge number of voters, almost enough to win this election without even counting the many who did not watch the speeches.

I, like Big Mac, have a devilish grin on my face as I think of a Big Mac presidency at last. Yes, my friends, CHANGE IS COMING !

I LOVE IT.....

Tonight I heard both BHO ad ig Mac address the AARP Nationa Convention and then take questions. If any of you wonder how Big Mac handles himself in front of a audience that leans emocrat (but is not unreachable), I'm here to tell you NOT TO WORRY. Though BHO addressed health care reform ad social security issues more specifically in certain areas than did Mac, Mac was much more specific than I have yet heard him -- and he demonstrated his long-running close partnership with AARP on many issues (none of them favorites of "the base"). Clearly Mac decided to speak in generalities right up through the convention, which he blinded and deafened with the Sarah Palin pick -- and I am wholly on board with it now, I was skeptical and I turned out to be wrong, and now that THAT task is acdcomplished, and "the base" is swarming to the fight, he is unveiling his true platform, one that closely addresses the concerns of retirees, working people, peoople in economic difficulty. In other words, most of us.

Big Mac sounded confident, eloquent, and fully comfortable advocating for common sense reforms and, yes, some government appropriations for GAP health insurance.

He was applauded every bit as enthusiastically as BHO.

I was impressed and encouraged. Big Mac will handle himself JUST FINE in the three upcoming debates.

vote4steve,

Geez, thank you for including the quotes from McCain's acceptance speech ... especially from the end of the speech ... I was there and actually couldn't hear the end of the speech very well because everyone was screaming and cheering so loudly that his words were overcome ... but not his enthusiasm or sincerity ... and certainly not his inspiration.

I have watched the speech back now on TiVo and loved it as much as I did the first time, but I had not read a transcript or excerpts yet. Yes, those words are exactly what America wants to hear. Even better than that, we know they are delivered by a true American leader with the most profound experience and love of our country.

None of us are perfect, especially including me. I don't agree with everything McCain proposes ... but I know that he means what he says.

It's also becoming increasingly obvious to me that Obama and his supporters are the ones who are truly out of touch with everything I hold dear about being American. Especially after meeting many of his supporters over recent months, including a few Obama supporters participating in protests in St. Paul.

Lol, and I don't cling to guns or religion ... just Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

I 'love' how the liberals like Obama and his elitists try to pretend like we Americans don't know how to achieve those things for ourselves! And of course, their old stand-by of trying to shame us into believing that Americans don't care about our friends and neighbors unless we hand over more of our money to the government. Give me a break! John and Cindy McCain are practically the definition of serving a cause greater than self. Geez, and Sarah Palin seems the very embodiment of standing up to lead Americans away from the shackles of corruption.

Thomas Jefferson said, ' A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take away everything you have.'

McCain/Palin 08! Woo Hoo! :-D
