Barack Obama, Joe Biden and the Democrats end on a Very High Note
Friday, September 7th, 2012
My Dear America:
After a night full of Celebrities, High Powered Democrats, Real People and even a former Republican (Former Florida Governor, Charlie Christ) warmed up the crowd for them onstage at the Democratic Convention came Joe Biden First and Barack Obama Next for a One-Two Punch to end the Charlotte Festivities in style.
Joe Biden gave one of his heartfelt and genuine speeches full of what some might call corny coal cracker philosophy that only Joe seems to be able to get away with. As Bill Clinton had the night before, Joe laid out not only what he and Barack had accomplished in the last four years but also laid the groundwork for what was to come from his "friend" and Master Orator, Barack Obama.
Both men made it very clear to anyone watching their speeches that they were not only two men who worked together closely but they were also close friends who thoroughly appreciated each other's company. This was not a phony show of political support. These were two men who have been in the trenches together for the past four years and although they had been tortured by reality much of the time they had made it through those four years in fine spirits, even closer than they had been before and like soldiers in the trenches who support each other to get the difficult job done, they were ready for four more years of working together for the good of the American people, and in particular the middle class American people.
Barack arrived in his famous cool, calm and confident style and although he had a lot to compete with in terms of this weeks Democratic Speeches he nailed it once again, as he always seems to do. He spoke about what he and his administration has already done and he spoke of what he and Joe Biden intend to do in the next four years.
All in all it was another Great Barack Obama speech and by the time he was done the Charlotte auditorium was completely "Fired Up and Ready To Go."
Now it's on to the debates and supposedly Romney is spending almost all his time these days preparing for the debates. Romney had proved to be a very effective debater during the Republican Primary but he wasn't debating Barack Obama. I personally think both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will both be out of their league in the upcoming debates. I certainly hope that is the case, anyway.
