What Did You Think of Romney's Speech?

Do you think he electrified the crowd, fell flat, or somewhere in between?

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney capped off the week-long Republican National Convention on Thursday night with his speech to the assembled delegates.

It was the former Massachusetts governor's big moment in the spotlight, with the entire nation watching. He's counting on the convention – and his speech – to give him a bump in the polls as he heads into the final two months of the campaign.

In his speech, Romney criticized President Obama for not leading the country in the right direction the past four years.

He also laid out his five-point plan to create 12 million jobs in the United States.

What do you think? Did Romney electrify the crowd, or do you think his speech left something to be desired? Leave us a comment below with your thoughts.

Every president wants to create jobs, and it is still a problem. Why do you think Romney would suddenly change that fact? Magical thinking?? And just how safe is it this plan of his to create more jobs than as it stands today? What will he affect? I don't trust him.

It sounds like Republican talk all over again. Republicans against the Democrats fiercly. Democrats like Obama are more for working for all the people, Republicans and Democrats, rich, middle class, and yes, the POOR. Romney is stands clearly for one side, and that kind of thinking is dangerous, and more dangerous in the long run.

NO, Obama admits the mess were in from Bush, and the current times, moreover he is realistic. Romney, puts Blame on Obama for everything and imagines that he will make a remarkable difference...easy said than done. Again, Obama is honest and realistic about the matters and Romney is faking it just to get a Republican president back in.

The problem with our Republican friends is that they are stubborn, forceful, and unwise. They don't care to think about the other side, but forceably move forward not caring about others.....war on Iraq is a bigggg one. World peace is so important, yet Republican party always wants to be the one on top and will even vote for war as if there are no other options. How devestating for everyone everywhere and to our planet.

On Wednesday's presidential debates, Mitt Romney made some big promises. But the one that stuck out to me was his vow to cut all of PBS's funding -- even though it only makes up 0.012% of the federal budget. So, doesn't this show you what kind of person he is? He would rather allow for prosperous T.V. producers and violent programing to rule our country. Do Republicans even watch PBS??? We have to fight this!! Protect our freedom for decency...and independent thinkers, by which PBS supports. Romney is trying to take too much CONTROL, and that is dangerous.
