Reagan was dismissed for using empty rhetoric too

I'll leave the politics of the matter up to you...but read this piece in the WSJ. 

Obama and the Power of Words, by Stephen Hayes.

Does this sound a bit Obama'ish?

"More than anything else, I want my candidacy to unify our country, to renew the American spirit and sense of purpose. I want to carry our message to every American, regardless of party affiliation, who is a member of this community of shared values . . . For those who have abandoned hope, we'll restore hope and we'll welcome them into a great national crusade to make America great again!"

Think again...

So Ronald Reagan proclaimed on July 17, 1980, as he accepted his party's nomination for president at the Republican National Convention in Detroit, Mich.

Obama by 8 points.
