: : In Texas, an individual who talks a good game, but is suspect in terms of actually delivering on his promises is said to be "all hat, no cattle". A boastful individual without much accomplishment to show is normally the target of this expression.

: :: All show and no go!
Here in the NYC/Brooklyn part of the world we would call him a "bulls h i t artist".
