No, it was boring said the New York Times liveblog:

"Sleepy? Our colleague Patrick Healy reports from the floor: There is a delegate in the Utah section and a delegate in Puerto Rico who are both drooping, eyes closed -- look asleep -- both are men."

Actually, the crowd loved it said the Associated Press:

"His own measured style left the hall in cheers, and as is his habit in campaign stops around the country, he stepped off the stage to plunge into the crowd after his speech."

Disappointing, said Michael Gerson on MSNBC:

"The policy in the speech was rather typical for a Republican. Pretty disappointing. It didn't do a lot of outreach to moderates and independents on issues that they care about. It talked, about issues like drilling and school choice which was really speaking to the converted. I think that was a missed opportunity."

Strong, said Charlie Gibson on Good Morning America:

"The words that he used at the end I thought were strong, and they sort of got lost in the crowd applause."
