I enjoyed Bill Whittle’s speech immensely. Just a great outing in terms of rhetoric and editing.
On the other hand, with one camera angle and a live audience that includes #OcccupyResoluteDesk, Benjamin Carson delivers a truly inspirational outing:
Of particular interest is the body language from #OcccupyResoluteDesk. He is NOT laughing at the jokes, which are good, and does offer one of his patented near-gesture eye scratches at one point. He does NOT applaud when the rest of the audience does, offering the merest hint of a golf clap at the tail end of the speech.
As you hear Dr. Carson relate his biographical details, you get the impression that he is everything #OccupyResoluteDesk would be, were BHO not an abject fraud. Look at Obama alternate between an Olympian pose and a scowl through the speech. Truly, that body language offers a hilarious subtext to a speech that is already a fine bit of work.
Thank you Dr. Carson. May the Almighty bless you and your efforts. The question is why the good Doctor has not been dragged onto a ballot yet.
