Romney's Speech

Romney made the grade tonight, but I am not the type of voter he was trying to impress. I think his speech was tuned to the undecided women voters. CNN had a focus group that seemed to confirm this hypothesis. I was looking for more red meat and more policy specifics, I thought Ryan's speech was actually better. But I sense that Romney has singular focus on winning. He knows what he needs to do to win; he effectively made the case to the voters who can still be persuaded while effectively criticizing the President.

President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet. MY to help you and your family.
Not soaring rhetoric, but effectively punctures Obama's pretentiousness and grandiosity. (So did Clint Eastwood, even if he was slightly embarrassing at times.)

By the way, the meme that Paul Ryan's speech needed fact checking has been effectively debunked.


  1. Clint was great! Reminded me of the Button Down Mind of Bob Newhart.
