I watched about 85% of the Convention on C-Span last night. I did so reluctantly, because I didn't expect much, but Boy! was I pleasantly surprised. Everyone who spoke was mightily impressive. Artur Davis –– a man of color from Alabama, a former D'Rat turned Republican –– is a Gift from God. A magnificent speaker in every sense of the term.
I just about fell in love with Nikki Haley –– real star quality there, beauty, brains, talent and abundant charm wrapped in a neat package.
Then ANN ROMNEY is so incredibly BEAUTIFUL in every sense of the word I couldn't believe it. She has to be in her sixties, yet she looks no older than 35. How she could do that after raising five strapping sons, being married to a big time businessman and politician while battling both MS and breast cancer I can't imagine. She not only looks more attractive than most movie stars by far, she speaks beautifully, is very feminine, but at the same time shows great force of character, and is obviously nobody's fool. Most important of all she has the unmistakable aura about her of a truly happy, fulfilled individual without the faintest trace of conceit or smugness.
With he exception of some dreadful loud vulgar woman with one of those obnoxious trashy southern accents, ALL the speakers were nothing less than excellent.
|New Jersey's larger-than-life Governor, Chris Christie
I LOVE Chris Christie! I had never heard him speak before, except in sound bites from the enemedia, and HE is “the real deal” –– a veritable powerhouse of authentic, heartfelt dynamism. Like all of the others who spoke so eloquently and so beautifully last night, Governor Christie radiates sincerity and deep, powerful conviction. He’s not speaking in a manner calculated to create “the right impression,” he is who he presents himself to be. Someone I believe we could trust. How refreshing!
The members of the enemedia –– including FOX –– should be forced to dig a deep ditch, then stand at attention at the edge while they're machine gunned into it, covered in quick lime and consigned to oblivion as quickly as possible.
I watched the proceedings on C-Span who doesn’t suppress part of the commentary with tedious, inappropriate, unnecessary “analysis.”
If only the public could see these intelligent, dynamic, attractive Republicans as they really are, instead of being filtered through the enemedia. the country would stand a good chance of recovery.
I probably like Ron Paul better than most, but I have sense enough to know a man with his personality, squeaky voice and gnomish physical appearance could never be elected president. Even HE knew that and freely admitted it while campaigning. Too bad his devoted followers can't face reality!
