A Negative Reaction to Obama's Speech
Most of the critiques of Barack Obamaâ€™s acceptance speech have been positive. Thatâ€™s why David Broderâ€™s opinion interested me. He thinks Obama did a poor job. In fact, Broder thinks the whole convention was a missed opportunity.
I wonâ€™t spend a lot of time summarizing Broderâ€™s opinion. It can be basically summed up as â€œtoo many old faces and too many old ideas.â€ Take a moment to give it a read if youâ€™re looking for a reasoned (rather than partisan) negative critique of Obamaâ€™s big moment.
