According to the talking heads, Romney's job last night was to cross a threshold where the American people could see him as President. He is no great communicator, but I think he easily succeeded. By far the two most memorable lines:
- President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet. MY promise...is to help you and your family.
- Hope and Change had a powerful appeal. But tonight I'd ask a simple question: If you felt that excitement when you voted for Barack Obama, shouldn’t you feel that way now that he’s President Obama? You know there’s something wrong with the kind of job he’s done as president when the best feeling you had was the day you voted for him.
