First let me congratulate our own Tom Hogan Sr. as he was honored by the RNC and co-led the Pledge of Allegiance. Tom has been a tireless worker for the Republican Party and truly deserved the recognition he received. Back to the speeches!
It must be noted that when minority speakers gave their presentations the network media found other things to cover. It must grate on the liberal media that minorities have found a place in the Republican Party and they are proud of it.
Not only are they proud they are among the most articulate speakers who can phrase the meaning of conservatism so all can understand it. The speech delivered by Ann Romney was a home run in anyone's ballpark.
She started a little nervous, understandable so, and then connected with the audience in the Forum and I believe the millions watching on TV. There were great lines such as when she talked about those who have said she has a storybook marriage but retorted she and Mitt have a real marriage which included MS and breast cancer not usually mentioned in storybook marriages.
She humanized her husband of 43 years as a decent and honorable man who would work unceasingly to right the problems facing America. A man not prone to advertising the good works he does or his charitable contributions because he considers it a privilege to do so.
The woman's vote in this race will be a considerable one and perhaps the one to tilt the election one way or another and Ann Romney reached out to woman and I believe she connected.
In typical liberal mean spirited rhetoric Juan Williams, who must be bucking to get back to NPR, when asked for his assessment of her speech said Ann Romney sounded like a corporate wife. When asked to define the term he said she was a woman taken care of by her husband in other words a kept woman.
Shame on you Juan Williams you are nothing more than a talking point repeater for the Democrats. You owe Ann Romney an apology and FOX should re-evaluate your worth as a commentator. Then we got to hear New Jersey Governor Chris Christie deliver the keynote speech of the night.
While some wanted more red meat language from the straight talking Christie he gave a very thoughtful and even profound speech on the principles of conservative government. His explanation of what has to be done and how it can be done with leadership as the hallmark of a new administration.
Doing what is right rather than what is politically expedient. He believes Mitt Romney will deliver that kind of leadership which is the only way we are going to straighten out the mess that President Obama has us in.
By the way he did not mention Obama but did once refer to the president. It was a principled speech about principles that got across the message of the party and conservatism to the live audience and the TV watchers.
