Confessions of an ObamaVoter: McCain vs. Obama in the Ultimate Convention Speech Off

The nomination acceptance speeches for both Barack Obama & John McCain were telling moments for their race for the White House.

Obama shattered expectations with an oratory masterpiece, while McCain managed to survive the night with the support of two crutches: his POW biography and sassy VP pick Sarah Palin.

When Obama’s moment came, he wiped the GOP’s character attacks of him off the map: Celebrity? Patriotism? Toughness? All arguments revealed to be nothing more than child’s play–the retorts in this speech were so delicious!!!

After a solid Joe Biden VP pick, a successful DNC, and Obama’s game changing speech, the Republicans had to make a desperate move in order to compete…that’s where VP pick Sarah Palin came in.

This pro-life, moose hunting, hockey mom-ing, miss congeniality-winning, right wing firecracker came out with venom for Obama, electrifying her base with an effective, substance free, biting performance. She gave the cowboy hat-wearing GOPs an early climax at the convention…and McCain put them to sleep afterwards.

2. Palin compares Obama and McCain: “In politics, there are some candidates who use change to promote their careers. And then there are those, like John McCain, who use their careers to promote change.”

3. Of McCain, she urges, “Take the maverick out of the Senate. Put him in the White House.”

4. Getting tough on Obama, Palin says, “It’s easy to forget that this is a man who has authored two memoirs but not a single major law or reform–not even in the state Senate!”

5. Further attacking Obama: “The American presidency is not supposed to be a journey of ‘personal discovery.'”
