Final Speeches at the Republican National Convention 2012
- 08/31/2012 by Playthell Benjamin (WBAI)
Depending on whom you ask, last nights' closing session of the Republican National Convention either inspired viewers or insulted them. The evening fare was highlighted by a Mitt Romney acceptance speech, preceded by comments by Florida Republican Marco Rubio, and a surprise presentation by Conservative Hollywood actor/director Clint Eastwood. Eastwood's performance was generally perceived as bizarre - and for commentator, Playthell Benjamin, Rubio's speech was in keeping with the dishonesty that has marked the Romney Campaign.
