Obama goes from powerful to speaking rhetoric [UPDATED]

Published 9:27am Friday, September 28, 2012 Updated 11:29am Friday, September 28, 2012

I listened to Obama at the UN. Did not hear first about 10 minutes, but the next about 15 minutes he gave a very powerful speech promoting democracy, freedom of religion, free speech, women’s rights, rights of the populace of countries where there’s been regime change, and was pointed in condemning violence based only on a group of people being “offended” by other’s freedom to speak.

The last 5 minutes, though, were just glossing over outcomes with a positive “spin” in battle ground countries with rhetoric that more than implied that he should get the credit for all the positive gains (like in Iraq, Aphganistan, African Nations, democracy in Burma, Egypt, etc)

All in allm I think when Romney is President, Romney should hire Barrack to be a speech writer for him.
