I was very much impressed by Mrs. Romney’s speech – didn’t know that they had started that far down the economic totem poll. Which, by the way, just shows the decency of Mitt Romney: his life is not a talking point. This is in stark contrast to Obama who has scripted himself to obtain maximum personal advantage from whatever situation he’s in.
Christie’s speech was also very good – a challenge to America to hear the truth and act upon it. As a theme for the campaign, it is right on the money. I do believe that the broad majority is done with the old politics and is ready for the revolution. That Mitt might lead it is weird, but no stranger than the fact that we elected an exactly unqualified man as President in 2008.
What do you think of it all?
UPDATE: “Mr. President, I’m here to tell you that the American people are awake, and we’re not buying what you’re selling in 2012.” See the Mia Love video – if she wins her House seat, then she’s the next TEA Party political rock star.
UPDATE II: Forgive me if I’m wrong, but methinks that was Rice’s “I’m going to run for governor of California in 2014” speech…
UPDATE III: A Democracy Corps poll with a D+6 advantage shows Romney up by 15 points among Independents. Hot Air has the story.
UPDATE IV: With all the GOPalooza going on if you feel the need for some quality, Obama Time, then Suitably Flip has the torture implement ready.
