#President Obama’s #DNC Speech was of course well-received by Democrats. A surprising number of conservatives also had praise. #Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola (ThinkTank), and Michael Shure, hosts of #The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“President #Barack Obama’s marquee Wednesday night speech at the #Democratic National Convention was held up even by some conservatives as the kind of address the country deserves in the current political moment.
#Pundits who fundamentally disagree with the majority of #Obama’s policies expressed grudging admiration for an optimistic speech that #praised America’s inclusive democracy. It provided a stark contrast to the ominous address about the threats facing the United States that #Donald Trump gave at last week’s #Republican convention in Cleveland.
Some suggested that Obama’s speech, which quoted the Declaration of Independence and framed the U.S. as a “light of freedom, dignity and human rights,” did a better job at expressing conservative values than Trump’s did.
Most of those who commented are on the record as fervent members of the #NeverTrump movement. Tim Miller, America Rising PAC co-founder and former communications director for Jeb Bush, said the disparity between the conventions would push a generation of young voters away from the Republican Party, while New York Times columnist Ross Douthat said Obama’s speech should make GOPers ashamed of what their party has become.
Michelle Obama’s deeply personal speech on Monday, which made the case for having black and female leaders in governance, also earned bipartisan accolades.”*
