Good, not great speech. Appealing to his base, Mr. Romney can take comfort in probably appeasing the GOP ultra-right wing which he needs to win. Especially in states like Virginia, Nevada and Ohio. Florida too.
Unfortunately for Romney, the Clint Eastwood fiasco might reverberate negatives and overshadow his performance in Tampa. We'll see, but clearly, the Eastwood chair bizarro didn't go over well outside the hall.
I give Romney a solid B. Nothing great, but good enough.
Substance: Not so good. A few decent pointers.
Style: B+: Well-spoken, good technique and nice power-suit look. The red tie was impressive.
Your thoughts: Try to be objective.
