SOUND OFF: 'Warm Love' Vs. 'Tough Love' and Respect?
What did you think of Ann Romney and Chris Christie's reportedly conflicting messages this week?
The day after Mitt Romney's wife and New Jersey's Republican governor gave back-to-back speeches at the Republican National Convention earlier this week, at least one website drew attention to their respective remarks.
"These two speeches...were not meant to be back-to-back," wrote a BuzzFeed reporter. Romney's speech had been scheduled for Monday, but was postponed to Tuesday when Monday's Convention activities were scratched due to the threat of Tropical Storm/Hurricane Isaac.
Romney said she wanted to talk about "the love we share for those Americans...who are going through difficult times."
Christie discussed lessons he had learned from his mother, including, that it is better for leaders to be respected than loved.
Did you watch the speeches on Tuesday? Do you think Romney's and Christie's remarks were at odds? Do you agree with Christie's assessment that for a leader, to be respected is better than to be loved? Share your thoughts about the convention in the comments.
