Ted Cruz was exceptional tonight, reminding everyone of Ronald Reagan as he tells us of his story and why he’s fighting for America.

Its hard to pick #1 of the night. Ann Romney, Ted Cruz or Mr Davis. They were all outstanding. Considering, I went into the whole convention thing, half hearted – I am walking away with a lighter step, and with enthusiasm.
Wow, I never thought I’d listen to even one speech the whole way through. Ann Romney and Davis were both incredible. My step is waaay higher.
Wooo hooo.Us too.
Let’s roll!! ;-D
Why? Romney will lose due to the power grab
Personally I think we should wait and hear things out. I know Levin and others have lambasted the “power grab” but I haven’t heard the Romney team’s explanation yet.
What planet are you on!! How ridiculous and just idiotic….Go cry in the corner and take you sand pale with you!! Gee…I am mad at Romney becuase of his power grab…such BS and selfish….and a person like you will be the FIRST to scream when Obama places 4000 new regulations on your life and way of life and then act like it was everyone else’s fault. Grow Up and WOMAN UP!! You sound like a two yr old. After you win the Presidency you can force other issues and make changes….but this mentality gave us Obama in the first place….when will people like you understand you add nothing but anger to every discussion and get us nowhere!
Power grab? Oh, apparently this is about the entrenched (power elite) securing their positions against any and all upstart politicians on the floor. Seems like a normal convention procedure from time immemorial.
Ted Cruz has a smooth and concise style…impressive and impassioned…..nice to see hime refer to Reagan…Reagan is and will be the Presence in the room that drives the real debate!! So many of the people like Ryan, Palin, Walker and Cruz come from that Reagan belief and passion….I LOVE IT!! And he spoke with no podium and straight from the heart!!
He was my favorite tonight so far! I’m on the west coast, so I’m still catching up!
That was great.
He is truly a gifted speaker, I was amazed at many of the points he made my favorite being I’m glad they didn’t offer my father as a penniless teenager any of their help…
I hope Ted never changes, he’s one of the few candidates who talk about liberty and the Constitution and actually believes what he’s saying.
Gosh, that one brought a tear to my eye. A wonderful American story. Thank goodness his father is alive to see all his hard work and sacrifice come to fruition in his son.
Except for the line he took straight out of the Independence Day movie scene where Bill Pullham’s presidential character gives a pep talk to the volunteer pilots who will try to save the earth from aliens (“we will not go silently into the night!”), I loved every second of his speech and thought to myself, from the speeches I’ve seen tonight, we’re going to have a lot of good choices for future presidents!
The phrase is from William Shakespeare’s Henry V. Copied and modified for Independence day. A lot of US President’s and Speech Makers consult the works of Shakespeare to help compile moving speeches.

Thank you tinker_thinker! I learned something new today.
Yes, I feel that same way, it was a most appropriate line! Go Ted! Go Mitt! )
This damn convention is a SNOOZEFEST! As bad as things are, you would think it would be more lively. Maybe it will be better tonight with Ryan speaking. All I can think is how much Palin left the place rockin’ in MN. She should be speaking, but I know Mitt won’t want to be upstaged, but it is a mistake. She could really help sell Mitt to the conservative base in a way that no one has been able to do so far.
I love the fact that many of the speakers have been young minorities and women. The personal stories they tell are uplifting, hopeful and full of drive and vigor. This convention for this reason is different then all the rest, and I might add refreshing too.
I just wished Sara Palin and Allen West were invited to speak…it would of been something!
And that is why my family and I voted for Ted Cruz!!
I just like how he just did a almost 12min talk all from memory. You can tell that what he said tonight is what he always says and feels. No tel prompter that he needs to read from to tell everyone how he feels.
