Thankfully there are other things to watch. I have no interest in seeing Mitt lie (again).

BTW -- my feeling will be the same when the President gives his nomination acceptance speech.

I want to hear both Gov. Romney's speech and Pres. Obama's speech. I think making informed judgments is best for a government by the people.

Sally Kohn of Fox News wrote: Paul Ryan’s speech in 3 words: dazzling, deceiving and distracting.

On "deceiving" Kohn wrote:
... to anyone paying the slightest bit of attention to facts, Ryan’s speech was an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech. On this measure, while it was Romney who ran the Olympics, Ryan earned the gold.

I think mitt will be fighting (lying hard) to take back the gold!

The Tampa Times Forum, home of the "We Built It" convention, was reportedly financed using more than $80 million in city and county bonds backed by taxpayers. Sher Valenzuela, the business owner picked to deliver a key "We Built It" day speech, benefitted from $2 million in federal loans and more than $15 million in federal contracts. Valenzuela has counseled other business owners on how to tap into taxpayer funded resources as a "secret weapon."

The GOP convention received more than $18 million in federal grants from the Presidential Election Campaign Fund and an additional $50 million in federal money for security. The City of Tampa kicked in $2.7 million to make the city pretty.

"We Built It!"

The best way to know if a speech from a conservative is great, uplifting, accurate and effective is watch and see the level to which the liberals go ballistic! Judging from the left’s reaction to Paul Ryan’s speech, and all the speeches the last two nights were very, very effective!

So if I understand you correctly Mtn man, The more "Divisive" a speech is, the better the speaker?
I guess that's what one learns from listening to sean & rush and glenn.

Dear Happy Valley Heretic. I don’t know what speeches you have been listening to, but the ones I listen to from the Republican convention are nothing but uplifting, very patriotic and wonderfully unifying, not divisive at all! As a wise man once observed, all people see the world, not as it really is, but as they really are!

The best way to understand political speeches is NOT to listen to them -- the emotion and rhetoric can twist words and meanings, hide what the person is in fact saying. The bst way to understand political speeches is to get the text and read them literally (and fact-check everything that is included). THAT is the best way to make an informed judgment.

The best way to know is if the population is uplifted, the speech is accurate, and effectively communicates to followers of either party.

Using your rule of thumb .... if the liberals go ballistic than the speech was terrible.

An effective speech will unite all people because it's so uplifting, accurate, and effective. I'd recommend you spend some time pondering that.

Kind of like watching old Nuremburg Rally films...

BTW -- Furry1993 said it right on.

Let's not repeat Germany's past mistakes.
