    Political Radar: Raining on Obama and Biden's Parade

    He's standing out there, in a crowd of 10-20,000 people, in the pouring rain giving a speech. Now THAT is dedication, THAT is commitment, THAT is something McCain could not do for fear of catching a cold at his old age. And don't you consvs. come on here and tell me that McCain withstood 5 years of torture in Vietnam, etc. That was 35 years ago. The man is 72 now.

    standing in the rain! wow! that takes serious balls and a real commitment and dedication to getting wet. THAT is something John McCain wouldn't do.

    have you ever heard the expression "too stupid to come in out of the rain"?
    i think it applies here, but you spin it any way you want-it can't help but be amusing.

    Obama standing in the rain isn't a big deal... the 10 - 20 thousand people who stood with him? that's a big deal!

    I love this part of his speech

    very inspiring!

    no offense, but you're kidding right? i'd have a hard time coming up with a more hackneyed, cliched POS. "these too will pass", "a brighter day will come."
    such profundity!

    i agree 10-20,000 standing in the rain is a big deal, but people do stuff like that all the time to meet/see celebrities.

    hell, i stood out in the rain to see the Pope, and i'm not even a catholic. it's just, how often do you get to see a Pope? he didn't have the Pope-mobile, though, so that was kind of a bummer, but he did have a really cool hat.

    I'm surprised they didn't melt.

    Just for starters, how bout you break his arms, hang him from a rope, and beat him for awhile?

    Then, come back, make comparisons like that and tell us how dedicated and committed he is, 35 years from now.

    :eusa_boohoo:

    he broke his arms by crashing his fucking plane! and he's not the only POW who was tortured and quite frankly I'm sick of hearing about it....using that as a political tool is pathetic...it doesn't make him more qualified to be POTUS...it means he got captured by the enemy...

    and del....cliche or not...the metaphor for the state of this country was brilliant, especially when said while standing in the rain....
