On Wednesday night, I listened to the acceptance speech of Governor Sarah Palin at the Republican National Convention and last night to the acceptance speech of Senator John McCain. I must admit that my enthusiasm for McCain’s presidency campaign was minimal until last Friday, August 30, when he chose Alaskan Governor, Sarah Palin, to be his Vice-Presidential running mate. With McCain’s selection of Palin, this radically changed the dynamics of his campaign, as reflected by the soaring donations after his selection. While Democratic presidential nominee, Barack Obama, is known for his rhetorical skills, Governor Palin demonstrates in her speech that she can also soar in the heavenly realm as more than 40 million viewers observed. While I was mesmerized by Governor Palin’s speech, I was confidently satisfied with McCain’s speech last night. I believe he is a genuine hero and, as he reflects his beliefs and goals for America in his acceptance speech, he has the best interests of our country at heart. There are many facets of his speech that resonate with me. However, when he declares his commitment to appoint “judges who dispense justice impartially and don’t legislate from the bench,” I am convinced that McCain is the man who can best lead our country (for more click here). For a reasonable assessment of McCain speech last night, read “John McCain: Plain Spoken Heroism” by John Mark Reynolds.
