President Obama formally accepted the Democratic nomination for President in Charlotte last night. The speech it had an all too familiar feel to it for a speech that was big on rhetoric and little on ideas. Shortly after pointing out how Americans are growing weary over the heated political climate in Washington, Obama blasted Republicans, lambasting them over their convention last week.
I think Mr. Obama gave a solid speech but not good as the one his wife Michelle Obama gave Tuesday night. Mr. Obama connected himself with the American Dream for the first time at the convention. His speech was much better than everybody at Tampa.
As far as substance Mr. Obama said nothing but he said nothing so much better than Mr. Romney said nothing.
He ended with a resounding and wildly cheered repeat of his basic theme of a bigger government pursing big goals. “I never said this journey would be easy, and I won’t promise that now.”
“Yes, our path is harder but it leads to a better place. Yes, our road is longer, but we travel it together. We don’t turn back. We leave no one behind.”
“We pull each other up.”
Overall I think the Democrats pulled off a way better convention than the Republicans did last week. In this case style over substance wins!
