My take on last night's RNC speeches? Ann Romney did great, where has she been hiding? 8.5 out of ten. I had great hopes for Chris Christie's speech, but there wasn't much red meat for me. . He didn't mention Mitt until about half way through, and there wasn't much smacking around of the president. Many listeners disagreed with me, calling it a "wise, inspirational speech". Maybe so, but you don't hire a passionate Republican junkyard dog like Christie and "tie him up on the front porch". Christie's speech could have been delivered by any of the back-benchers. I rate it 6 out of 10 possible points.
Here's the Ron Paul Tribute video from the RNC - Sure, it's thin gruel after having stripped him him of delegates, and all sorts of other fraudulent election activities. He deserves more, but the liberty movement will live on. Will it have a home in the Republican party? Not if the old guard sticks around.
