A Great Convention! A Great Speech!

I just finished watching the convention and think the Party struck just the right note.

I thought Lieberman did a good job and was glad he had a role. Fred Thompson was good. I would still like to see him become President. I thought Governor Palin was great!

I thought John McCain gave a great speech! I know he is not known as a great orator, but the rising crescendo of oratory at the end had me wanting to cheer and applaud. I was impressed and inspired. More impressive than the building emotionalism of the speech however was the perception of John McCain as a decent, honorable, man who has served his country with honor and distinction. He is someone I trust to do the right thing. I think he is wise and good and will put country first.

I think our country has been headed in the wrong direction and feel John McCain will put us back on the right track. We need change and reform, but not the statist solutions offered by the Democrats. We need a return to principled conservative governance but we also need pragmatism and someone who is committed to changing the partisan climate of Washington.

I just now made my second contribution of this campaign season to the McCain campaign and sent $100. Not a lot, I know. If you have done more, shame me into another contribution. Please, if you want to see John McCain elected president, make a contribution. If you can’t afford $100 make a contribution of $50 or $25. If you have the means to make a larger contribution, please do so. Obama’s supporters have put their money where their mouth is. Do they care about the future direction of this country more than we do?

We need to flood the campaign with money. If you, like me, watched this convention and felt that it is important that John McCain be the next President of the United States, open your wallet. Do it now, while you are still motivated. You can safely and easily make a campaign contribution using Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express. Just click on this link: John McCain. It will take you to the John McCain campaign site, then click on the “Invest in Victory” button.

I know Obama is leading in the polls. It is going to be an uphill battle do win this election, but I feel energized and feel more passion for a Republican victory than I have in a long time. November the second is still a long way off. A lot can happen between now and then. I believe McCain can win!

  1. Hey "Disgruntled," I enjoyed your post. Pretty decent summary of what is transpiring. If interested, please see my post on McCain's acceptance speech at

    Keep up the good work.

  2. Great post and I agree. McCain somehow managed to pull it off. My wife and I watched his speech, along with Palin's and a few others.

    Great job by all.

    Now let's get out there and win this thing!

    Country First!

  3. I wasn't expecting too much from McCain's speech as I had heard many people say that he is not known for his speeches. But I have to say I was blown away by his speech last night. Not only was it personally revealing (which I really enjoyed), it was very inspiring. I too wanted to stand up and cheer with the crowd. The next eight weeks are going to be tough but I think the McCain/Palin ticket has a good chance of winning.
