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."
"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."
"The words that he used at the end I thought were strong, and they sort of got lost in the crowd applause."
It's go time
No matter who you side with, last night's speech marked the end of the pre-season and the beginning of Campaign 2008 (although it's been going on since 2005). And Romney's already gearing up for 2012. And the web domains Palin2012.com, Palin2016.com and Palin2020.com are already taken. Biden2032.com is available, however.
As if they needed any motivation, both campaigns could check out that scene in the greatest movie ever made - Rocky II - where Adrian wakes from her coma and whispers to Rocky “There’s one thing I want you to do for me. … Win.”
