For starters, I only saw one President take the stage and it wasn’t Mitt Romney. It’s not that I’m not going to vote for Mr. Romney or don’t think he will be a MILLION times better President than Mr. Obama, he’s just not very exciting. He’d be a brilliant turnaround artist, should he win- which is precisely what the “failed corporation” called the United States of America needs at this time in our history.
All due respect to Mr. Romney, Marco Rubio was the ONLY future President I saw at the convention.
He’s young, charismatic, has a compelling life story, photogenic family- Mr. Rubio has it all! His zinger about people coming to the USA from other countries to escape policies like those of Mr. Obama was priceless.
As for Mr. Eastwood‘s comments- they were genius! In a convention that was so scripted and choreographed, it was refreshing to see someone get up there and be a little dangerous. Only thing I would have changed was instead of an empty chair- an empty suit would have been a more accurate portrayal of Mr. Obama.
Back to Romney’s Speech- it was very “nuts & bolts” about what is wrong with the country and what he can do to fix things. The best thing Romney did was to set people’s mind at ease. He came off as competent and honest- even if he wasn’t very inspiring. And after all, the “inspiration” Obama gave us in 2008 were just “empty words and promises.”
It may be a great tactic by the Romney campaign to just come off as being ready for the job, sans all the Obama platitudes. If there’s one thing the American people are sick of at this point- it’s slick political rhetoric.
So overall the Republican Convention was solid. Great speakers from diverse backgrounds from all over the country, solid economic messages.
