I wanted to give my take on the convention but I was unable to watch it live thanx to my old friend Isaac…..so I am watching YouTube and other sources to see what was said…….I apologize for the delay.
I see that the enthusiasm was not dampened by the rain from Issac….all the usual suspects were there….Rove, Nordquist, Boehner, Rice, Huckabee, Rubio, et al and of course they all had much to say……I was waiting for the convention to see if they defined themselves more clearly than they have in the last 8 months to a year…..I was disappointed. I heard nothing of a clear cut plan to save the country other than Obama sucks….not in so many words but the implication cannot be ignored.
Speaker after speaker….told the people the same tired lines but NO clear path to recovery….not Boehner nor Ryan nor Christie (I was waiting to see just how long he could pat himself on the back) nor well, pick one….nothing has changed…..there was no explanation of what their policies are….they just keep hammering Obama and the Dems and saying “trust us”…..basically we will tell you all after we are elected……I will say that Ryan was a bit excellent on his presentation, but it sounded a lot like Ayn Rand, to me………you guys, the conservs, may think this is a good idea….but I want answers not promises…..while I agree that Obama may suck….it is not a platform that is for winners…….
I will say that the bright spot was Mrs. Mitt……she was animated and straight forward (by the way she used a teleprompter and I thought those were not allowed in politicians)….she had a compelling story to tell…..the problem is….I am glad the she has a good marriage and some great kids…..but I DO NOT vote for them….I personally, do not care about her private life or that of her sons…..I want problems addressed….because Mitt is a Helluva guy at home does NOT make him good presidential candidate….
Then there is Mitt’s acceptance speech….this was his chance to re-introduce himself and define his candidacy……his speech had something for everybody, kinda like his candidacy, he had the warm and fuzzy…..something for birthers, neo-cons, war hawks, evangelicals…..so did we learn anything new about Mitt? Not really….the same vague promises and the main plank of his candidacy….Obama Sucks!
I see that we still cannot talk about taxes or Bain or Governorship or religion……..but it is clear that everyone in Tampa feels the same as Mitt….OBAMA SUCKS!
All in all from what I watched I would say that nothing new is out there and Mitt is still an empty suit that has nothing to offer but…..Obama Sucks!
