The Angry Obama Acceptance Speech in Pictures

The above site has the pictures that document the angry speech.

I don’t know what Barack Obama and his speechwriters were smoking but this speech is a disaster. The entire Democratic Convention had no theme and did not attack John McCain enough. This speech is boring, angry, whiny, lecturing, and full of very little specifics. I don’t know who told the Obama’s not to smile but Michelle and Barack are not smiling enough.

Barack is coming off as an angry, arrogant, and pretentious candidate.

Oh and he just brought out the “recruiting an army of teachers, and paying them a better salary” garbage that we heard on the primary trail, since when can the federal government get involved in the state hiring of public school teachers.

I can only imagine a non political person tuning into this speech and asking, “why is this guy yelling at me, what is he so angry about, is this what hope and change looks like”.

This is my take as well.
Way too angry tonight.
I would think a typical swing or independent voter would be really uneasy with the tone.

I agree... and I was thinking when he said that people who believe in low taxes and traditional values are just stuck in outdated politics... that's not the kind of change we need! I'm not about to drop my principles to join a feel good crusade that will make what problems we have worse and threaten what's been fixed. Obama did not make the case for change tonight.

I expect the kiddies in the “media” to start telling us that Obama hit a “triple home run!” (Bases loaded X3.) They are all tinkling down their legs tonight.

As per usual, throw more money at teachers and that will fix everything. Do all the other countries we’re compared to pour money into students who are disciplinary problems or lazy students?

The first part of the speech was quite negative, then Obama said something worthwhile about parents being involved in their children’s lives, and finally he went into the “I’ll fix everything” mode.

I just caught that tonight on a rerun. That was no peck on the lips or cheek. Obama and Biden's wife planted a serious lip lock on each other.

Your post was the first that I saw mention it. Michelle has to be steaming. I am no fan of Obama's but that seemed weirdly out of line.

Worth taking a look at, very odd.

Martin Luther King did not need rock stars and fireworks to leave his legacy. Obama is NO MLK. He is no more than a cinder in the ashy heap of history. Obum is an empty suit with the forked tongue of the devil himself, dare I say of a false profit. He is a Marxist, who went to a Marxist so called “Christian” church who damned America and who’s very mission, (so called, “black liberation theology” DENIES THE DIVINITY OF CHRIST. The event was so much bigger than the candidate that it will leave but a sooty residue in the minds of even the most devout Obamatrons. The bad news is that the republicans are so ineffectual and so afraid of not being polite that they are likely to sabotage the gift that the democrats have given them. A soulless, empty windbag, who loathes 50% of his genetic makeup. Some might argue his better half, at very least the half that didn’t run out on him. Gutter politics from the OLD party of lowest common denominators. God save America.

Like we need to be fixed. His speech was one quarter Reagan and three quarters Marx.

I’d be angry, too, if I only got to go to Princeton, Columbia, and Harvard. If only they had gone to Yale,too, they would be smiling.

He’s angry because he knows he is going to be served papers in the lawsuit Berg filed in Philadelphia, PA. Almost everyone else who is a plaintiff has already been served papers.

Obama is going to have to come clean on his past or have his name wiped off ballots all across the nation.

You’d be pissed, too, if you were he!

Sorry, angry will work. If the category he’s losing the most in to McCain is being the CIC, then yelling every now and then isn’t going to make things worse.

He did what he needed to do, I don’t think he won over a lot of people but he did some. Now it falls upon McCain to win them back

The anger was on purpose. It's supposed to be infectious. You, or at least the "undecided", and of course the DemonRat base, are supposed to be angry. Angry at George Bush, and by "association" angry at John McCain, who after all "agrees with Bush 90% of the time".

Calm introspective types don't vote for far left candidates, in any great numbers anyway. An angry voter is a motivated voter. They might even lay off the weed, crack or crank long enough to go to the polls in November.

Hmmm ... I wonder ... Obama's mentor at some point while Obama was in Hawaii, between the ages of 10 and 18, was the well known communist, Frank Marshall Davis, who was apparently a pedophile, as reported at Obama's teenage mentor liked sex with kids. I see the potential for a deep vein of anger there.

From Accuracy in Media: Obama’s Communist Mentor:

However, through Frank Marshall Davis, Obama had an admitted relationship with someone who was publicly identified as a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA). The record shows that Obama was in Hawaii from 1971-1979, where, at some point in time, he developed a close relationship, almost like a son, with Davis, listening to his "poetry" and getting advice on his career path. But Obama, in his book, Dreams From My Father, refers to him repeatedly as just "Frank."

The reason is apparent: Davis was a known communist who belonged to a party subservient to the Soviet Union. In fact, the 1951 report of the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii identified him as a CPUSA member. What's more, anti-communist congressional committees, including the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), accused Davis of involvement in several communist-front organizations.

Obama’s not to smile but Michelle and Barack are not smiling enough.

Michelle has nice teeth. I think someone told her cover them up- that or she's very self conscious. Probably didn't want her to upstage hubbie's chicklet grill.

Good job on the photo essay. That last group shot really says a lot doesn't it?

As for the teachers stuff -- combine that with his line by line deletion of things in the federal budget and it becomes clear that Constitutional restrictions don't seem too important to him. He makes it sound as if he will be able to command compliance once he assumes power... Probably all part of that "New Kingdom" he envisions being able to make..
