Here is a quick list of some of the things I loved about the convention overall:
#1 Reminded America success is good, criticizing success is bad (crazy even)
#2 Pointed out that Democrats don't "get" the way business works
#3 Showcased smart conservative women
#4 Lots of talk about school choice, the American Dream, striving for excellence
#5 Great examples of Romney's faith in action
#6 Ann Romney
#7 Did I mention Ann Romney?
I love that the convention didn't just pay paid lip service to conservative issues and policies (school choice, genius of free enterprise system, American exceptionalism, etc.) throughout the week, but put forward so many concrete examples. I loved that it was pointed out so many times how ridiculous it is that 4 years later, Obama is still blaming Bush.
Romney hit the ball out of the park tonight. I especially loved that he embraced what he did at Bain, telling the other side of the story -- how jobs were created His speech and the speeches of those telling us all the stories we'd never heard before painted a portrait of a man we are only now really getting to know. I liked what I saw and I think most of those watching tonight probably did, too.
