Mitt Romney “did what he needed to do in his speech, a workmanlike address in which he made a strong case against the incumbent and a slightly-less-strong case for himself,” the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza wrote, labeling Romney one of the “winners” from Thursday night. He said that Romney “did well in casting himself as the anti-Obama. Where Obama lacked business experience, Romney has it in spades. Where Obama made sweeping promises, Romney made simple ones.” Cillizza said the speech by Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., “was, without question, the best of the convention.” His biggest “loser” Thursday, not surprisingly, was Clint Eastwood, who gave a rambling, strange speech. “Eastwood was a totally unnecessary distraction that had to leave the Romney convention planners grimacing,” Cillizza wrote.
