Yeah, They Probably Should Have Closed the Convention With Bill Clinton

And I’ll bet there are a lot of Dems thinking that very thing. Heck, Biden would have been a better convention closer. For anybody wondering about the real reason that speech Obama delivered last night was moved indoors, imagine the same address being delivered in a half-empty football stadium.

Ace of Spades has a compilation of the collective letdown regarding Obama’s speech last night. That’s excluding the lap dogs at MSNBC of course (Chris Matthews’ head is still visualizing Dem-on-Martian porn).

The problem Obama’s running into is that there are only so many times you can deliver the exact same speeches, and last night was no different. Well — there was an exception: Obama never mentioned the unemployed. He probably already knew about the latest bleak jobs report (the workforce participation rate for men is the lowest since 1948) and didn’t want to make another ad for Romney. I also don’t recall much talk about the national debt either — what a surprise.

Oh, and here’s something that will drive the left even crazier: Clint Eastwood just called President Obama “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people.” Yes, even worse than Milli Vanilli.

Cue the empty chair.
