John McCain is too boring to win the election

John McCain is too boring to win the election

By Robert Paul Reyes

Sen. Barack Obama has a magnetic personality that attracts multitudes to his movement of change and hope. Sen. John McCain`s tentative speech and plodding manner has the ability to lull people to sleep. Obama is a Rock Star and Messiah figure, McCain is a vaudeville entertainer who hasn`t mastered the art of when to leave the stage.

Senator John McCainYou don`t have to be a political science major or a rocket scientist to know that things don`t bode well for McCain. There is simply no way that McCain can compete with the charisma of Obama.

The Herculean task facing McCain in trying to catch up with Obama, was demonstrated by two speeches.

Barack Obama`s speech in Berlin is generating extensive and, generally, positive media coverage, which casts the Illinois senator`s foreign trip as a largely successful attempt to present himself to the American people as a potential commander in chief. As the Wall Street Journal puts it, Obama `confidently walked onto a stage at the foot of Berlin`s Victory Column to intermittent chants of `Obama, Obama, Obama!` Some in the crowd compared the address to the rock concerts and sports events that sometimes draw hundreds of thousands of people to the Tiergarten.`"

"Republican presidential candidate John McCain had his own German experience Thursday-- at a restaurant in Ohio. He asserted that he was happy to devote his time this week to touring the nation`s heartland."

McCain`s supporters are quick to point out that the adoring multitudes in Berlin can`t vote for Obama, but the Americans who see Obama treated like a Messiah can and will vote for Obama.

Americans want a president who generates excitement, not one who induces boredom. When we see McCain wage a losing battle with a teleprompter, we are not encouraged to vote for him.

Obama can start measuring the White House drapes...
