Re: Romney victory speech

Romney might only have a victory speech ready to go as yet, but… Obama has a concession speech. Via The Hill:

President Obama has prepared a concession speech, he told Denver’s Fox affiliate in a round of swing state interviews shortly before polls closed Tuesday.

“You always have two speeches prepared because you can’t take anything for granted,” Obama told FOX31. “It is an extraordinary privilege to serve the people, whatever the office. I have served as a state senator, a U.S. senator and now as the president. And each and every time I’ve been reminded that it is the people where power ultimately resides; and I’m their representative, I’m their servant.”

“…I’ve been reminded that it is the people where power ultimately resides; and I’m their representative, I’m their servant.”

It almost sounds as if he actually believed this crap.

Well Obamuh has the McCormick Place fortress as the location for his concession speech so he doesn’t have to face the hordes that overran Grant Park four years ago. So he can give his concession speech and then make the mad dash for home in about 3 minutes. Besides, Obamuh needs to have something already loaded into TOTUS. If possibly hypothetically by the remote chance Romney should need to concede which I doubt will happen, he can ad lib and do it eloquently.

This is President “I Won,” isn’t it? Now that he has a good chance of losing he gains some humility.
