Obama's record isn't all that is incomplete.

 I kept waiting for the coveted Chris Matthews leg tingle moment during last night's speech, but it never came. The reviews of Obama's DNC speech have been spilling forth ever since he left the stage last night and for the most part, the critics are not kind. To sum it up from my perspective and to borrow a bit from his own lame excuses, Obama's presidency, his speech and his entire administration are incomplete. Regardless of whether he is re-elected or not, those records will always remain incomplete. Why? Because the vision is skewed and incomplete and absent the basic desire to fix the problems in the first place. Hells bells! This man has created the majority of the problems in the ongoing failure of our economy over the past four years and all he has to say about his failed efforts is that it was a bigger task than anyone imagined and besides, it's all Bush's fault.

Ronald Reagan once famously remarked: "some people go through life wondering if they made a difference, Marines don't have that problem."

I suggest that true leaders and real Americans share that same trait. Ronald Regan never had to wonder whether he had made a difference. No more than those Americans of today would need to wonder what he would do again if he was still here to do it. Ronald Reagan would make a difference once again and he wouldn't whine and complain about the failures of his predecessor while he was doing it.

Yes mr. president, in a word? Incomplete just about covers it.

 CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER' Review of the president's performance
I was stunned. This is a man who gave one of the great speeches of our time in 2004, and he gave one of the emptiest speeches I have ever heard on a national stage. Yes, it had cadence, and yes, there were deceptions in it, but that is not what is so striking about it. There was nothing in it. This is a man who believes that government can and should do a lot. There is nothing in here that tells us how he's going to go from today to tomorrow. For any of the so called goals and what government is going to do, what is he going to enact?

At least Romney had a five point plan. What we heard from Obama was a vision. And he pulls numbers out of a hat. 100,000 new math and science teachers. 600,000 more people working in natural gas. Two million more trainees, and he doesn't say how we get from A to B. It's a vision. I have a vision of an America where there is no disease and everybody has a private airplane, but unless I tell you how we get there, I’ve said nothing. And what is so surprising, is that - all he had left - he can't speak about his record on the economy, and it's not a good one. As we heard, he didn't speak about achievements, the one that's liberals like, ObamaCare, stimulus and etc… they're unpopular.
