Default Obama Convention Speech

No doubt Obama is a great communicator.

But did he deliver any substance in his speech that gives us any real answers on what he would do in the future (if elected) to bring our economy back on track?

Don't know or care. Didn't listen. He could confess to being born in Africa and being a Muslim, and he would still the best candidate and will be getting my vote.

I don't know why they waste money on the conventions.

That's because there's not alot that can be done right now.

If there were any easy fixes, they would have been done already.

You are right.

For several decades I have seen more and more jobs being sent overseas, it will take a long time to correct that situation.

Like it or not the US is not self-sufficient and cannot exist in a vacuum. It truly is a global economy and the reality is that the US cannot compete in many areas.

Many of the jobs sent overseas will never return - consumers can't afford it. Who wants to see 20% inflation return?

This is one area (global) that Myth Romney knows about - he has spread his wealth in lots of foreign banks.
