Why McCains speech was good

    Although McCain’s speech wasn’t as good as Palin’s he did manage to do something he is used to doing. That is, talk to the middle or the road voter. McCain being called a maverick is a good spin on someone the conservative base often disagrees with. He let Palin do the bad talking on Wednesday and this enabled him to hit home the reason he | Read More »

    I am so proud to be a conservative and support McCain today

    For me, last night was the greatest night in political history. Greater than the first African-American presidential nominee and greater than the first GOP female vice-presidential nominee. Last night was the first time a presidential nominee showed the world that the presidency (and the most powerful position on earth) is greater than the individual running for election. It is a given, something we all know; | Read More »

    McCain Speech (Lets Talk)

    First, everyone knows McCain will never beat Obama on a battle over who is better orator but McCain did talk more specifics on the issues and pointed to the differences to them in minor way. Could he have been more harsher? I think he should of. Everyone will applaud his service to this nation and his story; even his critics have said this (minus Jimmy | Read More »

    Day 4: Sen. McCain’s Time To Shine

    Due to the appropriate amount of attention given to Gov. Palin’s speech last night (just scroll down), there has not been as much focus on Sen. McCain as one might expect. Since the speaker line-up tonight is full of less well known characters (Sen. Martinez (FL), Gov. Crist (FL), Gov. Pawlenty (MN)) than yesterday (Romney, Huckabee, Giuliani), the spot light will entirely be on Sen. | Read More »

    It is all about perception

    Last night I heard Sarah Palin’s speech and suddenly I understood what executive experience means when choosing a president for our country. It is all about perception. Palin has an impressive resume that perfectly complements McCain’s career. Why her resume is better than Obama’s? Even when this seems a difficult question to answer perception tells me that indeed it is very simple. While Sara Palin | Read More »

    Sarah Palin drives it home

    *I am so proud of America. Last night with Sarah Palin’s speech she really drove this point home with her references to our troops fighting in Iraq, our innovation as far as developing new sources of energy to decrease our foreign dependence on oil, the values of our small towns and U.S. citizens, and the ability of government to serve the people instead of catering | Read More »

    My thoughts on RNC night with Palin

    After seeing the Convention coverage last night and the speeches given all I can say is WOW! The speeches were great, the tempo was great and the way they delivered (Rudy, Palin) point after point of why McCain should be president was outstanding. Last night before I went to bed I was wondering what people on the left would come up with to trump the | Read More »

    It cuts both ways

    Everyone here knows about my concerns about Sarah Palin’s readiness to take over the “big chair” if necessary and, quite frankly, a great speech — and her acceptance speech last night was GREAT — does not change my opinion. If great speeches are the qualifications for being great Presidents and Vice Presidents, then let’s just do what the MSM wants us to do and just | Read More »

    MI Morning Update 9-4-2008

    61 DaysUntil Election Day September 4,2008 QUOTES OF THE DAY: “I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a "community organizer," except that you have actual responsibilities.” “We tend to prefer candidates who don’t talk about us one way in Scranton and another way in San Francisco.” “But listening to him speak, it’s easy to forget that this is a man who has authored | Read More »

    Sarah is Shrill says Harry Reid

    She came, she saw and she has conquered. After a week of one sided attacks about a 22 yr old DUI against her husband, an almost pathetic campaign against her 17 year old and a host of flimsy issues, she came out swinging. Today what we saw was not just a woman described by her beauty or the novelty she brought with her, we saw | Read More »

    What Sarah Should Say Tonight…I Hope Salter Works These Into The Speech

    The Dems really did themselves a disservice by lowering expectations so much. She has some pretty serious ammunition to throw at Obama / Biden. Obama does not think small town life is relevant in today’s America. He dismissed her experience as Mayor. There are lots of small town voters in swing states. Rural states do not matter to Obama either…he ridicules Alaska. Biden voted against | Read More »

    What Gov. Palin Needs To Say Tonight

    Tonight’s speech at the Republican National Convention by vice presidential nominee Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is probably the most important convention speech in memory by a vice presidential candidate. Gov. Palin made a smashingly good impression with her initial appearance on Friday, but her relative inexperience combined with a ferocious left-wing/media assault on her and her family has left a lot of the public up | Read More »

    Obama’s Double Edged Sword

    Obama’s speech on Thursday night was fraught with much peril but the most obvious didn’t come until after the speech was over. Why did Obama’s bounce in the polls for a speech watched by almost 40 million people not sustain itself? I have a very unconventional theory. Obama wanted us all to believe that he was unique in history and the first new politician. His | Read More »

    Critique of Obama’s speech

    I read the transcript of Obama’s speech today, and since 38 million people watched it, I think its safe to say this speech will form the predicate for how he seeks to define himself for the next 9.5 weeks. As usual, he was thin on specifics and policy proposals, though I detected a few in there. Also as usual, he reversed himself on some points. | Read More »
