What was the worst speech of the convention.
Chrissy Matthew’s orations.
There was NO speech which was wrong on content... everyone said what needed to be said.
Stylistically, not everyone is a natural speaker.
I’d rather keep the focus on the POSITIVE. THAT is what is distinguishing us from the ridiculously negative Democrats right now.
Every time Tom Brokaw opened his mouth.
The MSNBC gang. BTW, who names their homely little boy Rachel?
Mitt’s speech surprised me, especially after the half-way point. It built and built.. Condi’s was excellent as well. Ryan’s of course. Hard to tell. I think Mitt’s was simply because a lot of people had the lowest expectations from him. We knew Ryan and Condi would do well.
oops, never mind. You were asking the worst. I don’t feel like focusing on the negative.
For sure. The worst job of reading a teleprompter I've ever seen. The best line was by he of little words (usually), “politicians are our employees”.
And I thought Eastwood’s was the best speech. I couldn’t sit through the others more than a minute.
The worst? The ongoing poo-pooing by Marxist commentators from PBS. Such blatant bias! Why are they allowed there? Those same creeps will be cheerleaders at the Demoncrap Convention.
Not a direct answer to your question, but my question is why has there been no mention about Santorum’s FANTASTIC speech? His “hands” theme could resonate.
Try CSPAN next time. It's better than any. Better than Fox.
Tough choice. Mathews or Eastwood. Paul didn’t move me at all. Mitt came off surprisingly well. If nothing else he deserves the most improved medal.
I watched a few of Mitt’s speeches over the years and I always thought he was quite an effective speaker. He gave one in Iowa on the last run that I thought was pretty good. I have to say I liked Ryan’s and I liked Rand’s quite a bit. Newt should have left the wife in the crowd. Clint was my favorite because I am partial to him and he said some things that none of the other speakers mentioned like our quagmire in Afghanistan. Also, he did something I saw little of in the speeches and that was mocking this abominable president we have now. That needs to be done more, because it’s obvious by his quick response that he can’t handle being joked on. Only one other person makes fun of him, the pariah of the liberals - Rush. I wish more did. It’s an effective way to drive them crazy.
Others were very good. Nobody really seemed to be a letdown. Condi was good, very classy. Rubio has a stirring effect. I could go on and on and on. I did expect a bit more from Christy, but he wasn’t bad.
None of them were any good for Obama, Democrats, or the lib media.
Does Code Pink count?
I could hardly tolerate Boehner’s drunken rants. And then he went on to say he was a ‘crying mess’ during Ann Romeny’s speech. We could do without Boehner, imo.
Perhaps that embarrassing segment featuring the Gingriches was a bid for the thrice-married vote. It was a bad idea.
I’m sure the msm was sad that given their shortened coverage, they missed televising it.
For a GOP RNC on primetime Clint`s
Who was running the agenda, Paulbots?
He did appear drunk...is he known as a drinker? If so, he’s disgusting and someone should have filled in for him.
Can't argue with that.
In terms of what he is capable of delivering, i agree with you about the Newt speech. It was very unmemorable.
On the flip side, the speaker that most pleasantly surprised me was Gov Kasich. He delivered a very impassioned speech which changed my perception of him as being a rather bland politician.
I thought the best 3 were Mrs. Romney, Santorum and Ryan.
The worst was Governor Christie hands down.
Chairmen of the Republican National Committee, Reince Priebus
Best speeches Rice and Ryan
Kelly Ayotte. Sheesh.
The Best was Eastwood. Wish he was the nominee, just to see the Liberals heads explode! (I would cut off a minor appendage if it would convince Thomas Sowell to run for POTUS!)
Boehner’s slurring, mumbling and fumbling
I thought Eastwood was brilliant with his take-off on Jimmy Stewart and Harvey.
My vote for worst? Didn't hear 'em all.
Best? Ryan and Clint Eastwood
Chairmen of the Republican National Committee, Reince Priebus
McConnell, zero emotion, boring.
I was going to mention her but decided not to, thinking perhaps it was due to unfair expectations on my part since i had heard her name bandied about as a possible VP candidate and so was expecting to be wowed by her. After watching her speech i was glad she wasn’t picked, but on the other hand i’m sure she’ll get better.
The blathering and driveling from the TV "news" creatures, which came between each set of prepared remarks from the podium, was the worst speech of the convention.
Schieffer sounding like a squealing piggy after Mr. Eastwood’s speech. I thought he was going to potty in his pants. He was obviously no journalist at the moment. He was a Democrat agent of spin and damage control.
When Newt was running, Callista was always in the picture, made you wonder who was really running. At the convention, I suspect Newt purposely was dry so not to show up Callista. Shes the boss and cost him lots of votes.
I don’t remember and I don’t care.
I missed that. But, Newt always appears on stage with Calista.
I saw him in more than one campaign appearance in person doing that. It’s embarrassing. No other candidate had his wife on stage gazing adoringly. Calista, with her plastic hair, always looked like a bobble head doll up there. Or like one of those Russian dolls that opens up to reveal another doll, and another doll. Unseemly.
Rick Santorum did have his daughter deliver an Etch A Sketh to him on stage and then waved her off while everyone laughed. That was endearing.
She has to. I think she has a future, but she was nowhere near the quality of Susana Martinez, Condi Rice or even Ann Romney (and Ann's was hard to watch, because she LOOKED uncomfortable...naturally, for someone like her who avoids the spotlight.)
I went to bed after Mitt’s speech. But I could still hear the television. WTF did the closing? Was that John Boehner? My God, whoever it was, they sounded drunk off their ass.
He’s a WELL KNOWN drinker. He’s drunk more often than not. I’ve seen many interviews he’s done where he was clearly drunk and had to choke back vomit. And he’s often drunk on the floor.
And to think what a powerful speech Newt could have delivered alone! Instead the two delivered just the hardest speech ever to even listen to....It was totally ineffective lost in the “my turn”, pause, “your turn”. Ugh
