Puncturing Obama's grandiosity

Steven Hayward picks the line from Romney's speech last night that may serve to cut Obama down to size.
President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet. MY promise . . . is to help you and your family.
A lot of the convention speeches were geared toward puncturing the grandiosity of Barack Obama. It reminds me of the celebrity ad that John McCain ran in 2008 calling Obama "the biggest celebrity in the world," yet wondering if he was ready to lead. Well, we've seen the result of electing the celebrity candidate who thinks he can promise to keep a plant open for 100 years and roll back the oceans. And now it's time to forget about electing a celebrity who promises the impossible and sends thrills up our legs.
