    Kennedy, Michelle backfire on Obama

    By MARTIN SIEFF

    WASHINGTON, Aug. 26 (UPI) -- The first day of the Democratic National Convention in Denver went exactly the way Barack Obama wanted it to -- and it was a catastrophe for him and his party.

    SNIP

    Obama's indulgence to Kennedy, coming right after his pick of three-decade liberal Sen. Joseph Biden, D-Del., as his running mate, sends the message unambiguously across America that Obama is not the start of something new in the Democratic Party: He is the tail end of something very unsuccessful and very old.

    SNIP

    Michelle Obama's message was clear: She wanted to tell the American people, "Barack and I may be high-powered lawyers, but look where we came from: hard-working blue-collar families who believed in personal responsibility. In other words, we know what it is like to struggle to make ends meet but to take pride in your family and your work. We are just like you."

    Unfortunately, it won't work.

    ROFL!!!

    Carpo, what do you expect a conservative Washington Times reporter to write. Give me a break.

    Thanks for the good belly laugh.

    Another question is how Hillary's speech will go. The Clintons are notorious for talking about themselves.

    Her speech could put him under for good.

    Having Kennedy speak and selecting Biden for a running mate tells us that Obama was lying about "change".

    He's tying himself to the failed liberal policies of the past more every day.

    So are you saying that by no change that Bush is a liberal. My brother, an ultra-libertarian would agree with you. LOL

    You don't know much about Sieff, do you?

    It shows.

    His OP is insightful and so on target that it's scary watching Obama self destruct.
