Next up: McCain 

Dan Bartlett: McCain needs to introduce a "forward looking agenda".

Crowd goes wild for reference to Bush ... eager for 4 more years apparently ... and 9/11. Seconds round of Olympics style "USA! USA!"

Cindy is made up to look like Paris tonight. Just saying.

Third "USA!" ... something going on in audience.

Aimed at the "Washington crowd", McCain says change is coming. Spoken truly by a lifetime Washington insider.

Implies fighting pork earmarks will help Americans put food on our tables and gas in their tanks. Well, whatever, same thing, stealing from Peter to pay Paul.

Says he's fighting a lot for Americans, no specifics. Followed by much admirable and more or less specific criticism of other Washington Republicans.

Obama passed a corporate welfare bill benefiting big oil?

Tax cuts, globalization, spending, tax cuts, vague mention of affordable health care for individuals, tax cuts for business, doubling child tax credit, reduce government programs to reduce taxes, more globalization, changing unemployment from system designed for the '50's, find new job for those whose job went overseas - give lower paying jobs while retrained, equal access to education for all - give parents school choice (seems to be speaking of vouchers).

Stop sending $700 billion to oil states. ("USA!")

New offshore drilling. Build nuke plants, clean coal, renewable energy, natural gas.

Obama against new nuclear power plants?

Last three paragraphs grazing a dozen or so policy agendas were 5 minutes of the 40 minute speech so far.

Pretty much described Russia's invasion of Georgia as what we did to Iraq.

(Had to pee)

... picking up, seems to be promising less war later by more war now.

We must catch up to history and change the way government does everything.

Obama doesn't have the scars to prove he can change America (???!).

Promises to appoint Democrats and independents.

Says he's blessed by not being able to avoid being shot down in Vietnam.

The reminiscing "reluctant" POW has now gone on about his POW years longer than his hap-hazard hits on issues of national importance.

"USA! USA!"

"... IF YOU'RE UNHAPPY WITH OUR GOVERNMENT, MAKE IT A BETTER ONE ..." Dangerously close to "My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right."

Good lord, canned "raising McCain" song. YEEEEEEE HAAAAAAAAA!!!! "We're all just-a-raising McCain!" This means if he dies, he has a second shot at it before Sarah Palin?

"USA! USA!"

Didn't mention "God" but two or three times I noticed. Possibly his death knell.
