US – Election 2012 – A Little Less Humility, Please – 7 September 2012

http://www.tnr.com/blog/plank/106989/obamas-effortful-humblebragging-and-uninspiring-speech#

Again on the subject of Obama’s speech last night…here’s an article from The New Republic that gets exactly where I’m coming from.

Why oh why oh why can this president not talk up his _considerable accomplishments_ in office? What is with all this “golly, things suck, but don’t vote for the Republicans otherwise things will suck worse” rhetoric? This article makes a great case for the things Obama should have reminded us about what he has _already done_.

Argh. I hope Obama’s campaign has something better for us in the next two months. (At least I can take some comfort in the fact that Romney’s won’t.)
