It was wonderful. It summarized pretty much everything that I admire about him. He was concise and straight-forward about his plans and goals as commander in chief. The real stories of Americans struggling and fighting for their future and dreams for their children hit home like nothing else.

Well, I didn't feel that there was much new information there. But it was well done, and hit many of the key issues of the election.

A large percentages of voters in this election are getting their information from TV and NOT from online, so this was probably a good chance to catch some of them who felt they didn't have a clear grasp of Obama's policies. And of course, for those who get most of their info online, it's probably already on Youtube. ;)

It was good.
I think it was really good to summarize him and his campaign for those who are still undecided or leaning.

the regular old family just sittin around the kitchen table shtick got a little cheesy. the footage of him goofing with his kids was adorable.
i really wanted to see more of him speaking, but that's my favorite part so, duh.
i thought it was well done, it honestly didn't feel like an obama-fest, it was informative if you haven't already pured over the .pdf of his tax plan, etc.
i have warm fuzzies of hope.
now we just need the change.

It was done extremely well from a production standpoint. Hit the main domestic issues of education, health care and economy. However, it was an infomercial. Almost too perfect. Amazing that after 20 months of campaigning and major national attention, he still feels that he has to share his biography with the American public.

This is because people are amazingly stupid, and buy shitty rumors.

I saw it. Watched it for about 30 seconds and then turned it off. I am not a fan of Obama. From what I saw the quality was good. Nice lighting. Well done with design. Him. eh.

Phillies just won the World Series. I don't think it's been broadcast in Pacific Time yet, but it's only 7:30 on the west coast.

I believe.
It was amazing. I know it was packaged, I know he has a ton of money that he has to spend before the election, but if he is half as sincere as he seems there may be hope for this country yet.

I believe.

Re: I believe.
This has been scheduled for some time, I don't think it's just a matter of him needing to spend the money. Actually I have thought all along it was a bit of an odd choice, spending so much on national prime-time TV, but y'know, with all the rumors still flying around about him, maybe it was a good choice after all.

(And I can tell you for sure that the rumors are still going on, because my relatives persist in e-mailing them to me. A couple a day, lately.)

It was very well done, and I'm sure it accomplished what he wanted it to.

It's less, IMHO, about the half hour itself, but that it will be hashed over and discussed in minutia on every news show and around every water cooler...well, at least for tomorrow, but probably for days.

Obama has grabbed this election and made it all about his agenda for the country. McCain can only react, and he can't even do that very effectively.

It was a good production. Very clear, very simple message, not interrupted by anybody's angry snorting. And it was very positive, up to the point - only about him and the future of our country. I can only imagine what McCain would do with 30 minutes of a screen time - most likely, pour buckets of all imaginable sh@t over the opponent.

It's brilliant marketing. A 30 minute infomercial with slick production values selling his ideas. It's easy to convince people that you are what they need if you are sincere enough.

Hey, I almost bought Keven Trudeau's book "Debt Cures they don't want you to know about" after watching one of these infomercials because I was absolutely convinced he had all the answers. That is until I did some research and found out the book only has 2 1/2 stars on Amazon and he had a criminal past.

My point is without a counterpoint argument, you can sell anything to the American people.

But, it's not like he really needed it anyway.

I don't think that is strictly an American thing. You can sell anything to people. :)

I believe Obama and his team had the right message last night. They stuck to their message. If all goes as they (and I) hope on Tuesday, Obama won't have to fight off McCain and Palin anymore. He'll of necessity concentrate on the future. Last night was not only an excellent campaign message; it was also preparation for transition.

The first thing Obama will do if he becomes President is start more war in Syria.
Obama wants to invade Pakistan and flood Afghanistan with yet more U.S. troops, and he will likely let two spies who funneled top secret intelligence to Israel off scot-free.

He is also friends with famous terrorists. Watch:

No Hope
I am surprised to hear people refer to his propoganda piece as "hopeful." He didn't refer to any accomplishments of his and spent the whole time painting a very depressing picture of people in America. He made them seem like they were helpless children who need his administration to care for them because they are totally incapable of caring for themselves. That is not hope or a positive message. It's just depressing.

I have an interesting point to bring up: Most of the families in his propoganda piece complained about the cost of food or energy or the mortgage etc. I'd just like people to consider the fact that most of those families pay more for taxes than they do for their bills. Between state, federal, sales and property taxes most middle class families pay up to 50% of their income in taxes. They use the other 50% to pay utilities, mortgage (which are all taxed too) etc. So first the government makes them poor, then Obama comes along with a bunch of programs (which will require more taxes) to "save" them. This is just another instance of Leftists creating the problem then acting heroic as they try to solve the very problem they created!

The bottom line is: the "Obama" families cannot pay their bills because the government is making them poor!

Re: No Hope
Yeah, capitalist opression is a great solution.

Honestly, I am horrified that so many poor people vote McCain. There's no logical reason.

You are very uninformed.
