Brit Hume Reacts to Mitt Romney's RNC Speech: 'He Was Not Trying to Sing and Be Poetic'
Brit Hume reacted to Mitt Romney’s RNC speech on Thursday night, saying, “This was a solid speech, this was a good speech. This was not a great speech.”
Labeled as the moment of the night for Romney was when the crowd erupted in cheers as he said, “President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet. My promise is to help you and your family.”
Hume called it interesting because, “what you had here was a substitution
it seems to me for the soaring rhetoric of this president and his soaring promises, with a very simple promise, a very workmanlike promise on his part, that he’s simply going to make things better.”
The judgment Romney was asking the American people to make about him, said Hume, was “am I someone you can trust to do this job, to make things better, to replace this president […] That was what he was trying to do, he was not trying to sing and soar and be poetic.”
