To less enthusiasm than his running mate Sarah Palin, John McCain gave his acceptance speech last night at the Republican National Convention.
“The constant partisan rancor that stops us from solving these problems isn’t a cause, it’s a symptom,” McCain said. “It’s what happens when people go to Washington to work for themselves and not you. Again and again, I’ve worked with members of both parties to fix problems that need to be fixed. That’s how I will govern as president.”
The often monotone speech was livened up by several antiwar protesters who got into the hall. Their signs were quickly ripped from their hands, and they were carried out of the arena as the crowd shouted, “U.S.A.! U.S.A.!”
McCain responded with a smile saying, “Please don’t be diverted by the ground noise and the static,” which was met with applause and laughter.
What did you think of the speech? Do you think he can keep up with the energy of Obama and Palin?
