The Unicorns Have Left the Building

Mitt Romney spoke for 18 minutes in a speech that was one of his best.  He was followed in another part of Ohio by Barack Obama who spoke for 54 minutes and received these kinds of reviews:
Prior to President Barack Obama’s marathon 54 minute speech in Ohio today, the Obama campaign sent our several statements promising the speech would be a major address framing the campaign going forward. Despite the hype, the speech was mainly a rehash of themes and ideas from the president’s recent stump speeches and his remarks were widely panned as overly long by the political press corps. ...

Before the speech was over, Politico’s Mike O’Brien begged the president to stop.

On the air, MSNBC’s Jonathan Alter said it was “one of the worst speeches I’ve ever heard Barack Obama make.” He refused to back down.
When you're a Democrat and you've lost MSNBC, you're in big, big trouble.

When NPR and PBS join the fray, we'll know the tidal wave is coming our way. . . I can't wait soon enough. . .

And then one commenter added something like this: 'the speech was so long winded that it was the first attempt to filibuster an election.'

Oh, please. . . we can't delay the Presidential election coming up in November! And hey voters. .. it has to be a big enough margin of victory so they *can't* cheat.

Remember to vote. . . and bring a friend!

Obama's 2-Step plan to re-election:

Phase 1) Drag the DNC down so much that it appears they'll lose control of the Senate -and whatever they have left in the House.

Phase 2) Convince the voters that he can keep the soon-to-be Republican controlled Congress in check.
