Kraft offers thoughts on Obama’s address to DNC
President Obama made his case for a second term Thursday (Sept. 6) night, accepting his party’s nomination on the final night of the Democratic National Convention. It was by all accounts a critical speech, and WFRV, Channel 5 turned to UW-Green Bay Prof. Emeritus Michael Kraft for some pre-address analysis. Kraft told reporter Terry Kovarik Obama’s speech didn’t need to contain a lot of policy specifics, but that it did need to be sincere and convincing. “He needs to indicate he believes that his direction will best protect the American public, would promote the economy, job growth, prosperity,” Kraft said. “Obama and Romney need to appeal to that 2, 3, 4 percent of the electorate that says ‘I don’t know. I could go either way.’ He’s got to make sure they go his way.” Full story.
