A Negative Reaction to Obama’s Speech

By  | 

Most of the critiques of Barack Obama’s acceptance speech have been positive. That’s why David Broder’s opinion interested me. He thinks Obama did a poor job. In fact, Broder thinks the whole convention was a missed opportunity.

I won’t spend a lot of time summarizing Broder’s opinion. It can be basically summed up as “too many old faces and too many old ideas.” Take a moment to give it a read if you’re looking for a reasoned (rather than partisan) negative critique of Obama’s big moment.
