Perhaps you need some European viewpoint to understand the Obamagasm that is the acceptance speech tonight:
And it will feature strategically placed “real people”, specially trained and scripted.
The AP story which ended up getting picked up far and wide was purged of any reference to them being flown in, trained to speak publicly in a “real” sounding way, and given tactically structured and timed scripts.
As usual, their tack is an attempt at impersonating actual Americans. All I can see by way of the coverage is that the press simply doesn’t question anything about the left. As awkward and implausible as it all looks, they play along. Michele Obama is suddenly transformed into someone who has never harbored a negativity for America, people with Kennedy signs suddenly appear from somewhere – “spontaneously”. Suddenly we are a nation of people who may pity ourselves because we proudly and meekly suffer working 9 jobs, etc., etc., etc.
Like the last however-many Democrat candidates have come up with of course, Barack Obama, a confused pacifist, is implausibly compared to John F. Kennedy, a war veteran who stared the Soviets down, and lowered taxes
