    B+...see other thread for reasons...good speech, but not "game changing" as others have stated, yet, nevertheless, a good, effective speech

    I gave her ... an A+.

    Why? Because I had kind of high expectations and little bit of fear that she would suck.

    I was simply stunned. Amazing impact, total composure. Going forward, there will be about as many people still calling Obama a "rock star" as there are calling Bill Clinton the "first black president". Why? Sarah Palin. She makes Obama seem like a dull freak in an empty suit.

    The only people that her sarcasm will upset are diehard Obamaniacs. To everyone else it was an appropriate defense against the hammering she's been taking the past few days. She came out swinging....I loved it. :yes:

    More than appropriate. They way they questioned her ability to be a good mother was shameless.

    I was a BS speech like all the rest and by the way Rudy is an embarrassment. He can't stop bringing himself up even to introduce the VP.

    Major Ethics reform? She didn't abide by her own standards.

    Excellent speech, full of good points and she came out swinging. Good for her. I thought she was just great.

    Only a moron could keep a straight face and criticize experience that includes running a state, managing a fiscal budget, and deploying the National Guard when he himself has never lead anything other than a campaign.

    Nice. I posed a direct question and you ducked it entirely.

    Where is she deploying the National Guard? In Alaska? They are getting pulled into Iraq because of the lack of manpower, how is she making any decisions about the National Guard? Yes, you can have them.

    [QUOTE=Green Jets & Ham;2726034]Its not ducking the question, I gave you the only answer that makes any sense, some people just have a knack for delivering a great speech, they're just naturally gifted out on the stump .. Reagan had it, Obama has it, and this woman has it in spades

    If you couldn't hear that tonite I would suggest you just didn't allow yourself to hear it[/QUOTE]

    Might have been that I was listening on radio. So I wasn't imaging humping her while she spoke. :rolleyes:

    Not just that, but she delivered it perfectly - with a smile and constant nods to Obama as a good man and a patriot. It was mainly critiques on policy and experience rather than on personality. The messaiah/celebrity/greek temple lines, on the other hand, left me cold.
