DENVER (CNN) - The line of the night so far: "That’s not a maverick. That’s a sidekick.’’
We will hear that line again.
"Four more months’’ is pretty good line, too. Bob Casey’s was the first speech to focus squarely on the Bush record.
John McCain has a proven record of going against his party or reaching across the aisle to get things done, whether it be his opposition to the war in Lebanon under Reagan, or the McCain-Feingold bill. What has Obama done to reach across the aisle?
The ONLY catch phrase the democrats need to utter at the convention or in advertisements is "ARE YOU BETTER OFF NOW THAN YOU WERE EIGHT YEARS AGO ???"
For MOST Americans, the answer is probably a resounding "NO !"
OK.. McCain is a sidekick.
Does that make Biden "The Token White Guy?"
Mark Warner just said we need jobs....all in east or mid-east towns and cities.
Don't you know....people on the east coast have NO CLUE there is anything west besides California!
Proud Oregonian.......we take care of ourselves!
Not a good sign when the most the CNN reporter can find to point out is a catchy phrase. Twice.
And what did he focus upon? Do you even have the attention span to remember that? You say we're the ones that can't deal with more than simple catch-phrases. Is that us or all of you, who can't stop talking for long enough to listen to the full sentences, or (God forbid) paragraphs delivered by speakers?
Or is it that you don't know how to type from the home-row, and have to hunt and peck for "four more months," and get tired of typing so hard?
But then, that's why you're the Senior Political Analyst, I suppose.
I am listing the speech
Is he know what he is speaking
He speaking like pastor not like politician
I feel like I am inside the church
Very few attacks
there are lot to attack GOP
four more months....No more Bush/Cheney policies....
Very Original, Too!
can i just add what a great job warner did this evening...he has my vote come 2012 2016
I can't take 4 more months, much less 4 more years. Go Barack!
I loved it, time for the Bush clan to ride their horses back to Texas
I agree on both. I heard them on NPR during a snack run to the gas station.
That's what the Dems need to be doing.
Yawn. So far nothing riveting. I had to mute Warner which only made him more annoying. What's with the lousy speakers? No wonder they keep expecting Hillary to save the election.
I thought both of these lines were great!! Way to go Bob Casey!
vote mc caine so hillary can run in 2012
Ryan, that was true 8 years ago. This is not the same McCain that I supported in 2000. He is no longer a maverick at all. You are blind to call a guy that marches in lock step with the GOP 95% of time a maverick.
Take this from a former republican turned independent. The GOP needs to punished for the last 8 years. McCain has morphed into Bush to win the hearts of the GOP.
I know you democrats are going to be very disappointed in November when John McCain wins. I am not a McCain supporter but its pathetic to see how Hillary Clinton was treated and the nomination stolen from her. I will never vote for sleazy Obama because I don't like or trust him. So no matter what Hillary says I will not support him but I will still be 100% behind her.
Again...how would you know...you haven't been listening to these speeches...and Warner gave an Obama speech which seems to be beyond the CNN talking heasd who are stuck in the soundbites and red meat and divisiveness of the past!! That was what his speech was about..not sound bites...not attacks...just straight talk.
I know you pundits really want to push the whole Hilary/Barack perceived family feud, but let me ask – So what do the Republicans have to brag abuot, they basically got stuck with Mccain by default out of a bunch of loser candidates. Just because the Democrasts were able to field a couple of strong candidates?
no wonder they think Obama is a celebrity – it's called 'honest enthusisam' for your candidate, somethign they clearly don't recognize.
McCaint is a sidekick and he is a puppet as well just like George Bush, being told what to do by the likes of Rush Limbaugh and the others at Fox and unfortunately at CNN too!
A "sidekick," eh? As catch-phrases go, it's about as catchy as "McSame," and just as empty.
Please, nominate a real leader.
We need Hillary Clinton.
Change you can bereave in
