From some readers:
He sure is making alot of promises for someone who never had a job longer than 3 years and never really accomplished anything in these jobs. Maybe that is an example of a job that can never be outsourced.
Shocking, he wants to pay teachers more. Love that union.
I just made my first donation to John McCain because of this speech. My Wife and I are ready to puke.
Apparently, I need my country to do more for me than I should do for it. The party of JFK is no more.
It is with great humility that I accept this nomination at a temple in front of 80,000 with fireworks blasting overhead.
“John McCain likes to say that he’ll follow bin Laden to the Gates of Hell – but he won’t even go to the cave where he lives.”
Because everyone, everyone, knows exactly where that is. What a coward that John McCain is.
Me: I agree with some of this substantively, but politically I think this is a better speech than a lot of the readers do so far.
