I wasn’t expecting him to come in person, I had heard he wouldn’t be able to make it due to his health.
Good speech so far – very charismatic (like his brother).
And wow – the floor erupted when he promised to be there in January.
Overall, it was a good speech, I mean, I don’t stand for hardly anything he was talking about (healthcare, Obama, etc…), but he’s such a powerful and inspirational speaker. He reminds me a little bit of Tony Snow, but he’s as loved as much as Newt Gingrich was.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get over to my laptop in time to actually blog about what he was saying, but it was a very inspirational speech (and honestly, like most convention speeches, there’s not much to write about, because most of them are more of a speech to get the crowd excited than an acutal substance speech, and this goes for the Republicans too).
Here’s a link to the video. I’ll try to do a live blog as Michelle Obama speaks.
