Bill wows the party faithful in Charlotte
Posted in the Warsaw Forum
Bill's speech last night was masterfully crafted and flawlessly delivered by --one the best-- orators I have ever heard speak in my entire life.
The party faithful loved it. They really ate it up. It was a smashing success - with the convention crowd. It was "classic Clinton".
It was a narrative of truth, half truths, exagerations, and out right lies, cleverly put together, and brilliantly executed as only -Slick Willy- can do it.
No one can tell a lie like ole Bill.
As I mentioned it was well received by the party faithful, but will likely have little impact beyond Charlotte.
After all, we've all seen this "dog and pony show" before, with the squinted eyes, the finger wagging, the "I feel your pain" tone.
The speech was too way long -- Bill's speeches always have been -- by the end no one could remember what he said at the beginning of the longwinded spiel.
Having said all that -- I believe the speech served it's intended purpose.
It gave ole slick another moment in the limelight in front of adoring, yelling supporters, he craves that more than sex with Monica, or even life itself.
It allowed him to "diss" Barack Obama. He kept ole Barry waiting for 45 minutes. The speech was purposefully long, with Barry behind the curtain waiting to be nominated.
It allowed Clinton to contrast his administration to Obama's failed administration -- and the contrast was stark. Clinton's being seen as a smashing success as compared to Barry's. While Obama is seen, even by partisan democrats, as something of a dissappointment.
And Bill did make that comparison between him and Obama, several times, touting his successes -- to Barry's self-admitted "incomplete" performance, though he assured the crowd tht no one, not even him, could have fixed the horrible mess Barry inherited. No one in the crowd believed that....
....and ole slick Bill didn't mean it. He was just rubbing salt in Barry's wounds while pretending to support him.
The "Great Bill Clinton", the crowd was thinking, would have fixed that mess in about ten minutes.
Barry the end of that longwinded speech, Barry had to be fuming.
The out comes Barack Obama to accept the democrat nomination-- narcissist meets narcissist.
Bill hugs Barry and and acts as though he wants us all to support him.
The effect of the speech was to remind democrats how much they miss the old felon -- and to make Barack Hussein Obama look small and insignificant by way of comparison to Bill.
Yes, Bill's speech was a smashing success. It achieved it's intended goal of diminishing Obama's image and stature.
The overwhelming feeling in Charlotte (and all around the democrat party) today has to be one of buyers remorse.
They have be thinking - how did we get from this "silver tongued devil" this Bill Clinton -- to a mere telepropmter reader -- this massive ego in an otherwise empty suit?
Even while praising Obama, Clinton pats his own back
Here are six ways Mr. Clinton made his big Obama nomination speech all about himself.
1) Throughout the address, he made subtle and not-so-subtle references to the successes of his own term as president.
2) When he dug back through the record of Democratic and Republican presidents going back 52 years to see which side had created more jobs, he said his party created 42 million, compared to just 24 million under GOP presidents.
If you are sitting at home without a job, that just pisses you off, and a pissed-off voter is almost certainly not going to be an Obama voter on Election Day.
3) He asked folks if they watched the Republican convention in Tampa.
It was a reminder that the White House admitted Mr. Obama did not watch even the GOP speeches.
Obama has become such a hardened, bitter, nasty partisan that he no longer even listens to the other side.
4)Clinton even went so far as to call Republicans “honorable people” who he expects will keep all the commitments they made. He even spoke well of George W Bush.
What a sad reminder of what a low and caustic figure Mr. Obama has become, a man whose campaign has called Mitt Romney a liar and a felon and claims that he was somehow responsible for a woman dying of cancer.
5) Perhaps the most shocking barb of the night came as Mr. Clinton was lauding Republicans and their convention.
“They looked good, they sounded good,” he said.“They convinced me that they all love their families and their children and were --grateful they’d been born in America--.”
Really? Clinton raises the birther card?
6) Even as he touted Mr. Obama as a unifying figure in the Democratic party, Mr. Clinton could not help himself but to remind everyone of the long deep scars that remain.
“President Obama appointed several members of his Cabinet even though they supported Hillary in the primary,” he said.“Heck, he even appointed Hillary!”
Then out walked Mr. Obama to join Bubba onstage.
But next to Mr. Clinton, Mr. Obama looked small and frail and rigid even though Mr. Clinton is so much older.
Even then, Mr. Obama still looked as if he should be carrying Mr. Clinton’s bags for him.
I told you Slick Willy wasn't there to help Obama, to make him look good. It was about making himself look good -- and about undercutting OBAMA.
Willy wanted to make everyone remember why they loved him and get them to compare Obama to The Great Bill Clinton.
He wanted Obama to look small and insignificant in comparison.
In that sense his nominating speech was wildly successful.
Thank you Willy, Good Job !!!!
Mitt Romney in race of his Life,
All Polls Have Him Behind
Reap What You Sow.
