This is the final installment of the 5 Things series for #RNC2012. Finally, we have made it to the Main Event the GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. So with no further ado.
5 Things I learned from the Mitt Romney’s #RNC2012 speech that I already knew
- It is hard for Romney to be leader of party in which he is not close to the most dynamic politician in his party.
- The bar for Mitt Romney as an orator is unbelievably low. For many pundits and commentators to express that this is your best speech ever but in the same breath to acknowledge that, your speech was not very good is beyond lowered expectations.
- You know your speech was bad when MSNBC and Fox News are almost identical.
- Mitt Romney had the fifth best speech of the convention behind Rice, Rubio, Ryan and Rubio. This is not be an indictment of speaking ability but more interestingly a list of better candidates for President to oppose President Obama. I truly believe that no republican candidate actually believes that they can defeat President Obama and are all waiting for 2016 and beyond.
- Romney is not the candidate that the GOP wants or even their best bet, as a Presidential candidate to defeat Obama but it is who their nominee is and they have to get behind him. The GOP must now hope to defeat the President in this upcoming election behind the unprecedented pile of money they have been able to raise to fund candidate Romney’s election.
I truly believe that Mitt Romney’s oratory skills will not be the make or break factor of his candidacy. I think it is clear that President Obama is better in the area of oration and I am expecting a first rate speech from President Obama this week. What I believe will be the make or break of factor of this campaign is whether Mitt Romney can convince the American people that his policies will be better for the country than President Obama’s will.
