OK, just a side note... but I am appreciating that WMR’s voice is “normal”... no whistling with the s’s, no Texas drawl (no offense, but you know what I mean), no Arkansas twang. He could be a professional speaker LOL.

Also, his mannerisms seem metrosexual (not in a bad way) kind of generic that should appeal to everyone.

JMO.

He just said "I will honor..." "sanctity of marriage" and "freedom of religion" though I had not heard the word "I" prior to that either.

What I have witnessed though is a despicable though typical NBC audio and video edited leftist version of his speech. During standing ovations and loud applause, somehow NBC's audio was reduced and they panned to a few in the audience who weren't as enthusiastically applauding as what the entire convention floor was as shown on YouTube.

In the YouTube airing, you can hear the thunderous applause. They kept focused on Mitt Romney when he talked about the positive things his administration will do.

Yes, check out his healthcare platform on his website, and he’s pitching to replace Obamacare with, essentially, 50 state-level Romneycares—exchanges, high-risk pools, etc..

It’s the worst of his promises.

this was played so well by his campaign, not giving big speeches (the media would have ignored him anyhow) until now. This is Mitt Romney. Not what MSLSD told us. What we heard tonight.
