SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC 4 News) - ABC 4 spoke with Tim Chambless who works at the University of Utah Hinckley Institute of Politics to break apart President Barack Obama Obama's verbal language as he accepted the Democratic nomination for President of the United States.
He gives Obama's speech an A after giving Gov. Mitt Romney's speech an A minus or a B plus.
Chambless says Mr. Obama's speech was more effective than Romney's because Obama is better speaker overall, but Obama had the upper hand because he spoke second.
Mr. Obama attacked the republican tax plan, "...all they have to offer is the same prescription they've had for the last thirty years. Have a surplus? Try a tax cut. Deficit too high? Try another. Feel a cold coming on? Take two tax cuts, roll back some regulations, and call us in the morning!"
Chambless responded by saying, "The middle class especially the lower middle class and the working poor have felt stretched to the breaking point so that was a tremendous applause line,"
President Obama scolded Romney's foreign policy platform.
Romney said, "President Obama has thrown allies like Israel under the bus, even as he has relaxed sanctions on Castro's Cuba. He abandoned our friends in Poland by walking away from our missile defense commitments, but is eager to give Russia's President Putin the flexibility he desires, after the election. Under my administration, our friends will see more loyalty, and Mr. Putin will see a little less flexibility and more backbone.
Obama replied, " they want to take us back to an era of blustering and blundering that cost America so dearly. After all, you don't call Russia our number one enemy - and not al Qaeda - unless you're still stuck in a Cold War time warp."
Chambless said, "So you have to decide as a voter, who are you going to support? Someone who is more confrontational or someone who is more cooperative, but tough," said Chambless.
