About the speech: Romney seemed very relaxed and comfortable which made for an excellent delivery. He entered and exited the stage to music from the 2002 Olympics which he seemed to appreciate and brought great sense of pride to him. Though Romney was quite relaxed, his sincerity and conviction were apparent. Nothing seemed to me to be forced or an attempt to be something he is not. This is important as that was his one of his greatest criticisms in the ’08 race.
Many speculated on how he would solicit this crowd as it is supposedly Huckabee’s home turf. Delving too much into the “look at me I’m a social conservative too” persona would do more harm than good because of the perceived lack of genuineness of his Socon values. I say “perceived lack” because he is the real deal, in spite of his detractors… But Romney, aware of this enigmatic stance against by some, chose to delivery a speech that was strongly DefCon, with a healthy dose of FiCon, and a sprinkle of SoCon deftly thrown in at intervals to assure them that yes he is on their side but he was not going to pretend to be their champion on those issues. This is good because they’re not looking for a champion of just the Socon peg of the three-legged stool. They are looking for the well-rounded champion that can fight liberalism on all fronts. Such is Romney – his excellent speech attesting to that fact.
