Does anyone feel the same ? I have watched and listened to Obama speak and he is not really saying anything.He also is looking at his notes while Hillary doesn't even need notes,she is a natural speaker.I believe Hillary is right when she says that Obama is all rhetoric.All he does is talk about change.There's just no substance.Obama,what change ? Next time you see him on tv. just really listen and see what I mean.He may have eloquent words,thats it.I'm not hearing anything.Do you notice this too ?

I feel the same and it's been bothering me for awhile. I've also been bothered by the fact that the media has been giving him a free ride. I'm hoping that the recent, viciously funny SNL skit will awaken some consciences in the press corps. Maybe a few reporters will now feel obligated to start grilling Obama the way they've been grilling Hillary for months. Who knows, maybe he'll rise to the occasion better than I expect. At the very least, we'll get to see if there is any thing behind the rhetoric. I think we're entitled to that. After all, he's one of the people who could get handed the most powerful position on earth and the voters should be able to base their decision on more than hype.

I wish I would have seen the snl skit.I'm just hearing hype and no solutions.Just like the wrinkle creams,all hype. Its just talk where you make it sound good with no results.Thanks for your comments.

You might get to see it yet. They've been playing it on some of the national news programs which is how I saw it. It was hilarious. Hillary was grilled by Vincent what's his name, the really intense Law & Order guy.

Yeah I mean sometimes it just seems like he says... things that sounds cool. And like he doesn't have much point. But Hillary.. is.. well I don't like her. I would rather choose Obama. And yeah he does use big words!! That is why Ron Paul was great.. he would use words the average person could understand! Obama.. just likes to sound way to smart.. lol

Someone else finally agrees, I thought I was the only one. Alot of people have a tendency to bring the race in when a white person says they don't care for Obama. But it has nothing to do with his skin color. He keeps preaching change. But what change might this be? He has basically no issues that he is running on. All he ever says is that Hillary is wrong. That if you want change vote for him. But its like the first day we all heard of Obama and its months later. We still do not know what he is gone to do to change things. I think the woman on the news yesterday hit it right on the nose, but now she is being racist. But if one really listened to what she was saying they would have realized that there was some truth behind what she was saying, she just used the wrong wording for it. She was basically just getting at that Obama is average and that his race has got him this far. Me personally I find him arrogant, and the fact that his wife keeps putting her foot in her mouth and talking down about America deters. She has plainly put america down on more than one occasion. Do we really want that in the white house? The president is suppose to be a national symbol as well as many other things.

When I put my comments on here I was thinking that I'm probably going to get a lot of flak and maybe I still will but this is my honest feelings and I feel that if he gets the election that were going to be in a lot of trouble I can't understand why he is getting so many states cause I'm thinking,don't these people hear what I'm hearing ?,the nothing. Obama,I can't hear anything of substance. Thanks for your comments.

I agree. Change and a new and better America take more than talk. However, Hilary's trillions of dollars in programs out of the taxpayers wallets scares the hell out of me. Can hardly make ends meet now, there will be hell to pay when the dems get in the White House and start taxing us even more!
