Team Romney's Turn at Bat

From a PR perspective, the RNC this week has been brilliant.
Themes like Leadership, Responsibility, and Accountability were heard over and over. Words like compassionate, caring, problem solver, integrity, and others were also heard. Speaker after speaker skewered the Democrats and their leader for the failed policies that have landed the U.S. in a continuing economic downturn, vastly increased debt, and a seeming fixation on a national healthcare system to the neglect of everything else. Speaker after speaker, including the GOP Vice Presidential nominee, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc), hammered at the “You Didn’t Build That” quote Mr. Obama delivered this past July 13 (see my earlier blog) and on the fixation with ObamaCare (a program that a vast majority of American did not favor during the debate in Congress and continue to not want today) to the detriment of everything else. Job creation as exemplified by successful businesses and the small business owner/entrepreneur was extolled as what had made the U.S. great in the past and could again.
The surprise speaker of Thursday night was none other than the actor/director Clint Eastwood. Mr. Eastwood, for those who might not recall, was once the major of Carmel, California, so I presume he is no stranger to government and governance. However, what Mr. Eastwood did on Thursday night was classic. Using an empty chair to represent Mr. Obama, he delivered a monologue that was all the more pointed and devastating while being hilariously funny. But Mr. Eastwood delivered some thoughts the packed convention roared approval of, and which this writer feels many Americans echo: “We are the owners of this country,” Mr. Eastwood said, “and politicians are our employees.”
The choices in this presidential election seem clearer than they have been in many years. Perhaps once again, just as when Mr. Reagan ran against Mr. Jimmy Carter back in 1980, the right man for the job has emerged.
As I have said all along, stay tuned. If you think it has been interesting so far, you ain’t seen nothing yet!
