Too bad the public didn't agree with his conclusions. And anyone who gave Clint a B for that speech is crazy, unless Clint was trolling, in which case it's an A+.
 
2012-09-08 01:07:12 PM  
Neither

But I would say if anyone won it was Billy Clinton.

He still has it.

If Clint had given a speech saying Obama was the worst president ever, yawn. Making that a performance that the democrats are still talking about? priceless

"The Star: C-
President Obama's Thursday night speech in Charlotte was a major missed opportunity. He should have have defended his economic decisions. He should have described, in vivid terms, what Obamacare is already doing for real people. Instead, he gave what amounted to 4,000 word rehash of his stump speech."

There is absolutely no way the author had a straight face when he typed this pile of shiat. He's definitely trolling.

Another misfire: Paul Ryan's acceptance speech was effective - the guy's got charisma - but he distorted the truth so brazenly, it may backfire later.

I love that even in the midst of this pathetic attempt to cheerlead for the terrible Republican Convention, this guy has to admit that Ryan's speech was full of shiat.

Author used the word "Obamacare" non-ironically, therefore he's a partisan hack.

The fact that he still scored it fairly close proves the dems really won.

Ann Romney proved she's a speaker on par with Michelle Obama.

No, she didn't.

But did Clint Eastwood's speech steal the spotlight from Mitt Romney?

I guess you could say that, sorta like a train crashing through the convention would've done the same thing.
 
2012-09-08 04:19:59 PM  
I wanted to sleep with Clinton after I finished watching him speak. I'm not gay, am I?

It's as if the author, looking to curry favor with his higher up, is just issuing Ruperts Murdochs talking points. Or does Rupert not own the Daily News yet? He's right about Bill and Michelle, but got Obama's and Romney's grades reversed, And if the Dems got a B- for for their Convention then the GOP got a C-.

Millitary contractors?

The only way to really evaluate the conventions is to see their effects on the way people will vote, and we measure that with polls. Based on those it looks like the Republican's convention was a failure, while the Democrat's convention was a success.

When FOX news does a piece calling you out as a liar, and you're the star Republican of the moment, you know you've messed up.

Mitt Romney received a dead cat bounce. Barack Obama looks like he'll be more like a superball bounce. Yet Obama and the DNC are the ones who did worse? How exactly are you grading them, buddy?

As a father, I felt personally insulted by Ann Romney's speech.

That's right.
Despite the DNC having better speakers, including a former president, a first lady that spoke better than Romney's wife, and the president himself giving a far better speech than Romney, neither won.
Despite the DNC getting far more attention, especially positive attention than the RNC, nobody won. Despite the DNC giving Obama a boost and the RNC not giving Romney any, neither won.

Yep, you're absolutely right. Neither won.

Not quite, you're thinking of the NY Post. The Daily News is run by Mort Zuckerman.
 
2012-09-08 04:37:28 PM  
Well considering the RNC resulted in a negative bounce, I'd say it lost.

According to my Twitterstream that night, I'm the real idiot for not recognizing what a brilliant speech that was. Also, something something libtard Hollywood elite.

The grade is saved by Ann Romney's I-Can't-Quit-Mitt speech, which proved she's a speaker on par with Michelle Obama.

That's the same group who says Obama speaks at an 8th grade level. Are you sure you want to stick to your guns on this?

Umm... a lot of democrats think Obama fell pretty flat on his speech. Go to politico or any other group that round up various analysis of his speech.

"Let's be blunt. Barack Obama gave a dull and pedestrian speech tonight, with nary an interesting thematic device, policy detail, or even one turn of phrase," wrote Michael Tomasky, the editor of the progressive journal Democracy, at The Daily Beast, in a line that was representative of other commentary.

James Carville, who wanted something bolder, was disappointed. "Certainly not the best speech of this convention," Carville tweeted minutes after Obama left the podium with wife Michelle and daughters Sasha and Malia.

The speech "got the job done. But I didn't feel any real passion in the delivery. It felt more like an actor soldiering through his lines," wrote Kevin Drum at Mother Jones. "There was nothing memorable, nothing forward looking, and nothing that drew a contrast with Romney in sharp, gut-level strokes. Obama was, to be charitable, no more than the third best of the Democratic convention's prime time speakers in 2012."

Sorry that not everyone shares your man-crush on Obama.

From this side of the border, the RNC looked like a horrible joke, and no one gave a rat's ass about the DNC, save some rumblings about the sex maniac's bizarrely good public speaking skills.

Two months of non-stop "I approve of this message", here we go. Have fun, my neighbours.

Especially compared to the sincere speech Romney gave us. I mean just look at his face. That's the face of a man who cares and is very sincere!

And Vice-President Joe Biden did no harm, which is saying something.

Reworking a tired and lazy meme is hardly saying something and makes me suspect Josh Greenman either never watched Biden's speech or watched it on FOX.

I kind of liked Clint

Because you're kind of an idiot?

The grade is saved by Ann Romney's I-Can't-Quit-Mitt speech, which proved she's a speaker on par with Michelle Obama.

[quizzicaldog]

Yer just kidding now, right?

She humanized Mitt to the point where most Americans now think he is a cyborg and not and out and out robot but her attempts to pander to women's voters were both pathetic and ineffective.

I give the entire article a grade of D minus.

First, because I'm generous to a fault and secondly, because it's largely spelled correctly.

James Carville is whoring himself out and pimping cheap bourbon in commercials trying to hijack the election with a "election party". If I ran CNN, I'd fire his ass on the spot for lack of integrity. Even without that his punditry had been historically bad lately, he's just phoning it in and info-taining up his commentary.

CNN is losing viewers left and right, and part of that is the idiots that talk and talk about things and are dead wrong. There's no actual analysis, just BS gossip. In the name of balance!
