State Of The * - Delivery Analysis
We had two big speeches the other night. Well, three actually. Two big ones and a "response". State Of The State- Governor Jon Huntsman Democratic Response- Senators Dmitrich, Hale, Davis, Mayne State Of The City- Mayor Rocky Anderson Personally, I think Mayor Anderson had a better delivery than the Governor. He seemed sincere, and moved quickly but was not rushed. The one thing I didn't enjoy about his delivery is his crazy Utah accent. He dropped, swallowed, pushed and pulled words all night. It was insane. Governor Huntsman's delivery was okay, but only just okay. He moved through his speech fine and obviously knew the material well, but his delivery was cheeeeesy. Waaaaay toooo cheeesy. The venue was an elementary school and at times it seemed the Governor was adressing school children. The Democrats should consider taping their response. They've done it in the past, and they should think about doing it again. They should also use only one camera. It was literally painful to watch as the Senators were caught looking at the wrong camera, stumbled on their lines and seemed as though they were reading their speeches for the first time. The one exception was Senator Karen Hale, who was very poised and gave a great delivery. Possibly the best of the night. Also, Senator Mike Dmitrich should have buttoned his shirt. UPDATE: The Democratic response WAS taped!
