The Republican National Convention ended Thursday with a very enthusiastic crowd reacting to Mitt Romney’s speech. The crowd roared, laughed, loved and all in all it was a good week for the Republicans.
I, however, disagree with the Republican idea that came up repeatedly throughout the week that Obama has failed to deliver change. In his speech tonight Romney stated:
“You know there’s something wrong with the kind of job he’s done as president when the best feeling you had was the day you voted for him.”
We are not a utopian society under Obama, but there’s has been one key improvement over the past four years that is hard to deny. There has been a culture shift in America for the better.
Regardless of what you think of the man, George Bush’s presidency was very polarizing. Supporters were devout, and dissenters were very vocal. It wasn’t fun to be an American. There was an uprising of anti-American sentiment within our own borders that Barack Obama has remedied. I’m not going to make the claim that Obama’s done a great job, or Mitt Romney couldn’t do a great job. I’m just saying that it’s better being an American today than it was four years ago.
