Trump faced his biggest challenge yet — and he nailed it

Via Billy

Donald Trump had a big job to do Thursday night, but of course big jobs are what he does for a living — so it’s really no surprise that he got it done . . . beautifully.

The Republican nominee needed to not just act presidential, but be presidential — while still being himself.

He needed to keep every ounce of New York toughness and roughness he’d shown in the campaign to date, while also showing sensitivity and a sincere commitment to making life better for all Americans.

He needed to show a coherent policy vision recognizably his, that spoke to “his” voters, regular Republicans and all Americans.

And he did it in a speech characteristically Trump — wandering and emphatic, hard-hitting and a little chatty; blending policy and principle, anecdote and attack line, while speaking from the heart.

    1. Thank you and I would be happy to post some of your stories, but as far as linking is concerned, I now only link Southern Patriot ones since the infighting among Patriot groups led me to be non-committal. Talking about cutting off your nose to spite your face! :)
