So says this Redstate commentator:
Giluiani had leadership. Romney had conservatism. Make no mistake about that.
The people who want a conservative have found their man, it seems. Mitt Romney was pitch perfect and willing to talk social issues–something totally missing from Giuliani’s speech. And people noticed.
I have to say that it was a tremendous speech. I actually could not listen to all of Rudy’s, but Mitt’s was great.
He poked fun at John McCain subtly. He spoke negatively about McCain-Feingold and McCain-Kennedy. He pulled at the heart strings of social conservatives, something Giuliani did not even attempt.
Giuliani was introduced by George Will, who made the point that Rudy made New York governable and Rudy is a Thatcher conservative.
Mitt was followed by Ann Coulter who put the red meat conservative seal of approval on him. It was an excellent speech that should resolve all fears conservatives have about Romney.
The race is one — it’s now between Rudy and Mitt. McCain is a non-starter.
Wow, that was fast. I posted my similar prediction at 2:45 p.m. Less than two hours later, the theme is picked up at Redstate. EFM gets results!
