Yes, an admitted idiot who was elected twice.
I found Obama's speech to be exceptional both in content and delivery, and yeah he seems like a fairly intelligent guy. Maybe you should re-read the text?

Sounded like a high school election where the student promises to give the student body things like Friday's off, cake for lunch, longer summer breaks, etc. but cant really deliver on that promise.

Quoting myself here, but watch the video it contains a great summary of all these promises that he knows he cant keep....spoon feeding people the BS while he looks 'em straight in the eyes.

would love to reread it, but you can only use the word change so much before it becomes very boring. he's a boring human being. barack obama has the IQ of a slim jim. congrats to him though. he can deliver a speech too, but so could some of the worst human beings in the history of the world.

I didn't know about the violence of democrats. who are the warmongers? you want a war veteran to fall and break bones? get some class. no sense in offering hurt to other humans.

What has Bush/McCain delivered for this country in 8 years?

In the REAL WORLD Bush's ass would have been FIRED a long time ago.

Barack has good ideas for a nation that have been subjected to bad ones for 8 years.

Actually he specifically mentioned that the process would not be easy and he has repeatedly mentioned that we will all need to make sacrifices in order to face these challenges. We don't want Friday's off, we just want to know that our hard work is going to pay off in the end. Obama gets that, McCain (and apparently you) don't.
