The acceptance speech delivered by Trump was just “OK” as acceptance speeches go - IMHO.
It wasn’t that the he didn’t hit the major themes. It was that he took so much time hitting EVERYTHING. In short, I thought the speech was often repetitive and simply too damn LONG. For me, some of the more memorable lines tended to get lost within the maize of the quantity of the rhetoric presented.
The very 1st thing I noticed as Trump was delivering the speech was the volume of the words being delivered - he essentially shouted the entire speech. This tone of the delivery was both annoying and distracting - IMHO.
Midway through the speech it dawned on me I had heard it all before.
Most of the speech’s content was on point, although I was surprised he doubled-down on his politically ignorant rhetoric regarding NATO. No, not the part about the allies paying their share, but his threat during an interview he gave in the morning to essentially dissolve NATO agreements by picking and choosing which NATO allies we would assist if one should be attacked. That is not smart - certainly not politically smart - and again shows his lack of understanding and serious thinking - IMO. No doubt, Gen. Mike Flynn began hyperventilating while listening to this portion of the speech. However, I’m sure Putin is happy.
My short critique: Too long. Too Loud. Too repetitive. Full of important content and entirely superfluous rhetoric. As a consequence, I tended to lose focus and found myself tuning out.
It seems to me very clear that Trump himself had a major role in actually writing the speech. And that’s good. If nothing else, Trump is authentic. However, no talented speechwriter or speech coach would have suggested such a long and loud, monotone presentation.
The Democrat convention is next. A week-long suck fest during which time Hillary will promise your tax money will be used to purchase the votes of her constituents - the nation’s “tit-hangers” and anarchists while she rips Trump a new vent - all to be expertly covered, explained, excused or simply ignored by her MS media pimps.
