At the Halfway Point--A Convention Pause


Well, the Republican Convention has completed and we can get on with our lives, for three days.

What's on tap for Monday? The Democratic Convention. 

I am expecting less drama coming out of Philadelphia as the democrats convene. Their task is pretty well defined--support the status quo as an alternative to the negativity exuded by the republicans.

My observations about the Republican Convention.

-- You can't Make America Great Again if you can't convince someone that it isn't great right now.

-- There wasn't a great deal of concert plans and programs discussed and offered just lofty concepts.

-- There was a lot of negativity

-- The facts presented during the Trump's acceptance speech were mostly true. I checked them with the New York Times

-- Ted Cruz was perhaps the most interesting convention speaker because his observations were very different from the mainstream.

Well it is game on.

I wonder where it will end.
