One Verdict On Obama’s Speech

Everyone who watched Barack Obama last night will have an opinion on his speech, and we will probably read dozens of them over the course of the day. I found this one somewhat notable because it comes from Politico, mostly a Democratic Party organ:

THE BUZZ IN CHARLOTTE: Reporters think President Obama’s speech was lame – meandering, and sounding like a State of the Union address. People at the after-parties seemed baffled that he didn’t lift his game for the big moment. But mostly Republicans watched the Republican convention, and mostly Democrats watched the Democratic convention. So the acceptance speeches weren’t as big a moment for talking to swing voters as they were in the past.

Interesting: Pro-Obma spin–the acceptance speeches don’t matter anyway.
