By all accounts, Mitt Romney was sensational today in Pennsylvania. His theme was Barack Obama’s revelatory “you didn’t build that” speech. Over the lunch hour (here in the Midwest), Twitter was burning up with commentary from those who were watching Romney’s speech live. The commentary was unanimously euphoric. Romney spoke without teleprompter or notes, something Obama rarely does without getting into trouble. He was, everyone agreed, passionate and articulate. It seems that Obama’s attack on entrepreneurs and job creators, and his baldly stated conviction that everyone owes everything to government, was the spark that Romney needed. It will be interesting to see how his speech is reported on tonight.
In the meantime, the NRCC has released this very good ad, which blasts Obama’s “you didn’t build that” oration and is titled “He Doesn’t Get It.”
UPDATE: Here is a portion of Romney’s speech today:
