A Question For Obama: Isn’t America Great Now?

The line that said it all:

We’re going to make America great again.

It isn’t great already? Nope, because Obama wasn’t here before. Well, he was here. He just here, here. You know what I mean.

Oh, and with Obama the ocean will cease to rise, the planet will heal, children will not get sick and America’s image will be restored. He’s the miracle man (text of speech here):

Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment — this was the time — when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves, and our highest ideals.

This was the moment? Now that Obama is nominated we’ve entered the promised land.  Hope! Change! I believe! I believe!

The scariest line:    “remake this great nation”.  If it’s great, why does it need to be remade? And how, exactly does he plan to remake it besides taking profits from oil companies (how?), forcing clean energy (how?), forcing car companies to make more efficient cars (how?) and creating millions and zillions of jobs that won’t go overseas (how?).

Did you like the speech as much as I did? I mean, besides the vapid substance, the form was pretty great.

Oh, and one more thing: My least favorite tick of Obama’s is the nose-in-the-air-gazing-in-the-distance look. He does it when he’s soaking in the adoring, chanting, creepy crowds. Yes we can! Yes we can!  Bleh.
