"A candidate whose empty bombast could float a fleet of hot air balloons"

"Obama is a candidate whose empty bombast could float a fleet of hot air balloons. "We are more than a collection of Red States and Blue States," Obama spouted on Super Tuesday during his victory speech. "We are, and always will be, the United States of America." This prompted my 14-year-old sister to exclaim, facetiously, "So that's why they call it the United States." Obama is a modern day Warren G. Harding, of whom William McAdoo once said, "His speeches leave the impression of an army of pompous phrases moving over the landscape in search of an idea. Sometimes these meandering words would actually capture a struggling thought and bear it triumphantly a prisoner in their midst until it died of servitude and overwork." The only difference between Harding and Obama is that Obama's speeches never actually capture a struggling thought -- and if they did, they'd have to waterboard it for information. Obama's speechmaking isn't deep. It is profundity for dunces."
