This is the last part of the speech. The best part, the part where he wraps it up and makes his point starts at about 3:30.
Yeah, I know, it's not the soaring rhetoric of Obama.
Yeah, I know, some people struggled to stay awake. Whatever.
Yeah, I know, I'm biased because I have loved my Bad Boyfriend since the beginning of time.
Yeah, I know, I'm already a Republican....and I favor the military....and I am a Navy girl.
But here are my two questions -
Do you doubt that he meant every word of it?
Do you doubt that he has walked the walk?
That's all that matters. There are those that could have given a better speech, but I have always believed that actions speak louder.............and better than words.
I didn't hear a speech, I heard a man tell me what was in his heart. If I want a pretty speech, I will cue up Kenneth Branaugh in Henry V. I don't want Shakespeare as POTUS. I want a man who will honestly tell me what he will do and to know he can and will do it.
It wasn't a great speech, it wasn't even McCain's greatest speech, but at the end.......I have never loved him more.
