What time does he speak?
I have to go read and brief for Torts and Contracts.
It's amazing, what some of the best speech writers can come up with, when given the time. And in an election year, no less.
Add to that, a silver-tongued lawyer, with a knack for oratory, and voi'la!
A speech for the ages...
I just watched his 08 acceptance speech in front of the Greek pillars in the stadium filled with 80 + thousand people. As he was making his promises one thing stuck out. He said he would be like Bill Clinton who created 23 million new jobs.
Ironically, today there are over 23 million people unemployed.
But I watched it to compare to the flavor of tonight. Most of the democrat convention has been hate, so I expect his majesty to keep to the pattern. He will lay blame on Bush and so on and how hard he had it, blah blah blah. And he will of course try to reinvent himself as the messiah he sees himself to be, possibly a Roosevelt or a Kennedy, or even maybe morph into a Ronald Reagan, we'll have to wait to see it. But my guess is he'll transform into a lamb and pretend to be a Christian type preacher man bringing the good news of "shared prosperity" otherwise know as communism. And some class warfare etc. just for excitement to feed the hate in the audience.
I think I will now start the "Official - Something is Going to Happen at Some Point!" thread.
That way I can beat all the real posters and get my stars and flags first.

Ya….I’m the first to create such a thread about a topic.
Thanks for the S&F!
He didn't make the case before he became President. Hindsight is 20/20. Now, what's he going to sell us on?
What I will be looking for is connect-ability. If he cannot make the crowd want to believe him then he's done.
He has to be convincing, but I will tell you that no one I know not even my democrat friends is buying the " It was so much worse than I thought and it was all Bush's fault " thing, not a single person I know accepts that excuse and frankly some have barked that they are so tired of hearing it. Tonight might give him another week or so of life but I see a slow but gradual decline to election day. It will be a 60/40 vote with Romney taking the 60%. But who knows, we still have to wait and see, maybe he'll blow the doors off tonight.
