But will he respect you in the morning?

Since I have cable television, I knew that if I so much as took a little peek at Obama's multi-million dollar dog-and-pony-show las night, I'd be counted among the lemmings. Chris Matthews of MSNBC had that feeling up his leg again (and he really should see a doctor about that). Michelle Malkin provided viewers with her own blow-by-blow account. Matt Archbold of Creative Minority Report did the same with ABC's "Pushing Daisies" -- well, sort of -- from the one network of the Big Three that didn't sign on.

Meanwhile, Calvin Woodward of the Associated Press dug beneath the spin to find the real deal:

Obama's assertion that "I've offered spending cuts above and beyond" the expense of his promises is accepted only by his partisans. His vow to save money by "eliminating programs that don't work" masks his failure throughout the campaign to specify what those programs are - beyond the withdrawal of troops from Iraq.
