Fox News Transcript: 8/28/2008 3:30PM EST

BRIT HUME: Joining me now is our the Fox News all star panel. The question arises immediately of course, how is this speech? Did Obama seem like he thought he was a rock star or did he think he was Zeus preaching hope with a bolt of lightning held high above his head? Did the speech do what the convention organizers and the Obama campaign hoped it would? Bill Kristol, your thoughts? 

BILL KRISTOL: I thought Obama’s speech was a shockingly minimal endorsement of Obama. 

HUME: Really? 

KRISTOL: Other than the words and speaking style, this speech could have been given by anyone.

HUME: Including John Kennedy?

KRISTOL: Excluding the dead - except for Lyndon Johnson. That bastard wouldn’t let mortality stand in the way of stealing the limelight. The point I’m making is that Obama, who campaigned for eighteen months, never once mentioned that he was Obama. There were 75,000 people sitting there and millions more at home. There were a lot of people who had never met him, let alone seen him in person. That he felt that he didn’t have to bring up that he was him just showed how condescending he is; how much of a celebrity he believes he is. How out of touch he is with everyday Americans who I speak to every day at my club.

HUME: Wow. You agree with that, Mort?

MORT KONDRACKE: I do. Look, he said what he had to say, but he didn’t say anymore. Generally, he didn’t give the specifics. He never said the things that I’m thinking he should have said, nor did he tell us how he would do to make the changes necessary to carry out what I want.  And I don’t know if you noticed, but not one mention of Ayers or Wright. 

JUAN WILLIAMS: I really have to disagree but not all that much.

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Brit, if you don’t mind I’m just going to sit here and let overt disdain and contempt for the human condition drip from the corner of my mouth.

BILL O’REILLY: While I have never been anything but completely fair to Senator Obama, I have to say, objectively, that the Folks™ know nothing about Obama except for this speech and since he didn’t come on the Factor to deliver all I can say is the normal folks just aren’t going to understand why this candidate didn’t have the courage to come on with me to say the same thing he just said tonight, but to me.

CHRIS WALLACE: Gentleman. Obama won’t be giving his speech for another five hours.

HUME: We’ll be right back with Sean Hannity, Dick Morris and Karl Rove to analyze why Barack Obama was so ill-prepared to do make this speech earlier.

    gENTLE WOMEN OF FOXY NEWS ,you certainly know how to turn men on ?Have you been practicing on each other .get my drift ?do you take turns in the stall with you big feet and reach out and touch someone ? Or do you wear your Wives ?shoes and try to sexually gain flavor that way ? Your mannerism s are not that of manly men ,more like Barbara Bush : John McCain once said (1998)”why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly “? Because Janet Reno is her Father .. Its unfortunate that John had no parents and you people were hatched fro vultures

    Obama is talking about a systemic problem within his administration, I say the problem is O-BAMIC.
    inmature judgements, highly questionable appointments, and so much personal ego. He is educated to Hitlerism ideologies, ergo dangerous to a constitutional society. Socialism, marxism, communism, and radicalism have no place in our country. History of the past 20 years tells us we should isolate Islamic Radicalist people quickly and start thinking American! Gingrich is on the right path.
