The Democrats

Day 1
Michele was splendid.
The party presented all of its wishes tonight.
Hopefully the discussion of the funding will follow later.

Day 2
The second night was even better.

Day 3
Still pretty good.

I was hoping that there would be enough focus on the fact that we are spending beyond our income to give me a fig leaf to believe that he would be serious about bringing the debt under control.

There was a bit, but not much?  Is he serious about that?  I guess that is the 64 trillion dollar question.

  1. I thought Obama's speech was great and I was truly moved. But speechifying aside, I have gone on record here saying that I would vote for the first guy who spilled specific specifics, and I was very disappointed.

    I understand why they aren't doing it. It's the same reason that Romney refuses to release any more tax returns. It's fodder for your opponents to use against you.

    But in the absence of specifics we are left with the less than satisfactory "trust me". At this point I am just hoping the debates will tease out some specifics but also know that both candidates are rehearsing answers that stymie any attempt to do just that.

    Right now it appears to me that the election will be decided by which candidate can convince the most voters that they are the most competent. Competent over inspirational.

    It's my sense that if that's the race, advantage CEO.
