Last night’s Republican line-up was awesome! When Republicans fight back and articulate our basic winning principles in such a fashion as last night, we’re very hard to beat. After 9pm EDT the activities began in earnest:
Mitt Romney’s speech was pretty good. I thought he started slow but really gained momentum when he articulated conservative principles in his call to “throw out the liberal government in Washington” saying “Republicans prefer straight talk to politically correct talk.”
Mike Huckabee’s speech, however, was excellent. Huckabee had many great lines including: “I’m not a Republican because I grew up rich. I’m a Republican because I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life poor, waiting for the government to rescue me.” He went on to tell a story about a teacher giving a lesson about the importance of veteran’s sacrifices in the service of our country. It was great speech-making and hit home.
At 10pm EDT Rudy Giuliani showed up and ripped the Dems a new one! It was absolutely awesome, with so many good points, I can’t write them all here! In my opinion, the line which may be one of the strongest to undecideds was about reading the resume of the two candidates for President while blanking out their names and parties. It’s not even close who should be President. Giuliani also filled the speech with tons of red meat, tearing Obama limb from limb!
Then came Sarah Palin.
Actually, her speech was similar to her first speech last Friday, but the stage was completely different: so big, so important, everyone watching. With only six networks showing Sarah Palin’s speech at about 10:30pm (compared to Obama’s 10), she still managed to pull 37 million viewers (just 1.1 million short of The One’s speech). Good thing, too, she knocked this one out of the park and the MSM doesn’t know what to do with itself! From suggesting that she didn’t write her speech, to that she shares nothing but a chromosome with She Who Must Not Be Named and so forth, the Dems and their campaign wing, the Mainstream Media, are completely miffed and grasping at straws that will come back to bite them.
The energy was electric and the moment historic. Even the adorable little Piper Palin, Sarah’s youngest daughter, waving at her mom and the crowd with the excitement of a seven-year-old who’s never seen so many people clapping for her Mom, was perfect.
10 out of 10 as far as I’m concerned.
If I were Barack Obama, I’d be a worried today. Very worried.
