Reacting to President Barack Obama's finale speech at the Democratic National Convention Thursday, Fox News political analyst Brit Hume argued the address contained a "significant number of straw men and criticisms of proposals nobody's making."

"I thought it was a speech that had all the virtues that you associate with a Barack Obama speaking style," Hume began. "I thought he was poised and he delivered it well and so on. And I think given the difficult task that he faced, he probably did this about as well as he could."

He added: "It probably didn't have in it more than the usual quotient of dishonesty for a political speech of this kind -- but it had its share."

Hume said Obama's argument that Republicans say bigger tax cuts and fewer regulations is the "only way" and government should do nothing. "I've never heard anybody say that in either party about anything," Hume said.
