Sioux Falls citizen discusses the Democratic National Convention
President Obama is accepting the Democratic Party's presidential nomination Thursday night in Charlotte, North Carolina. Now the nation waits to see if Obama can spark the same flame he did at the 2008 national convention.
Ryan Casey of Sioux Falls is in Charlotte for the convention and joined KSFY News via Skype to discuss the event.
Casey talks about how Obama can capture the same spirit he did in 2008. Casey said the president does a great job of energizing people, but when democrats gather there is a remembrance of "what can be."
Casey also talked about former-President Bill Clinton's speech Wednesday night. He praised Clinton's speech saying the former-president "demolished" claims of the Republican Party. Casey reiterated that change can't happen overnight, and President Obama has accomplished many tasks.
Finally, Casey talked about First Lady Michelle Obama's speech. He said while many are trying to compare Mrs. Obama's Tuesday night speech to Ann Romney's Republican National Convention speech but it wouldn't be fair. Casey said Mrs. Obama did a great job of portraying her Mr. Obama as not only a politician or president but as a husband and father.
