Obama’s Acceptance Speach

What a speech! Despite the unfair attacks John McCain has leveled at Barak Obama, that he was an empty-headed celebrity like Paris Hilton or Britney Spears, that he didn't care whether America was defeated in war as long as he was elected, Barak Obama was not angry with John McCain. He admitted that John McCain loved his country and served it bravely in uniform. But more in sorrow than in anger he had to say that John McCain would not offer the change we need because he is out of touch with the problems and concerns of the vast majority of Americans.

Now, I don't believe that Senator McCain doesn't care what's going on in the lives of Americans. I just think he doesn't know. Why else would he define middle-class as someone making under five million dollars a year? How else could he propose hundreds of billions in tax breaks for big corporations and oil companies but not one penny of tax relief to more than 100m Americans?... It's not because John McCain doesn't care. It's because John McCain doesn't get it.

Only someone who owns more houses than he can count could think our economy is fundamentally sound and that people who think otherwise are suffering a mental recession. Talk about being unprepared to lead!
