Come on! Whatchoo Got!?!?

I watched the entire Bush speech a couple nights ago. The best part about it was watching Kerry at midnight in Columbus, Ohio get right back into the Republicans face. I expected a lot more coverage of Kerry’s response speech yesterday, but it was understandably overshadowed by Russia and Clinton.

I don’t think we can underestimate the effects of this speech though. It shows what kind of man Kerry is and what kind of campaign he’s going to bring. Never before has something like this happened, that a presidential candidate given a speech immediately after his opponent accepts his party’s nomination. No Retreat. No Surrender.

Tonight, President Bush got up and told us that he’s got a plan for the economy. That’s exactly what he said four years ago. But with the largest deficit in American history, I don’t think we can afford four more years of this president’s plans. That’s because for four years, this president has taken us in the wrong direction.

    I’m a little bit embarrassed by this post. Just a bit, although I’m wondering why I am. A few days after writing it, I’m thinking that its trite and not really adding anything to the discussion. Should I be embarrassed by being excited?

    Anyway, it could also be that I’ve been letting the polls get to me, I’m the type of person that always looked at the effects of what happens to shape at least part of my view of it. The shine really fell off of Howard Dean for me in Iowa after the scream not just because of the scream itself, but how it effected a lot of other people. Also, he should have known better.

    That Kerry’s post-Bush speech seems to have had little effect in a way shapes my embarrassment for being so exuberant earlier this week.
