Top Republicans Are RAVING Over Obama’s Speech. Here’s What They’re Saying:

President Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) was a heartfelt and optimistic tribute to American greatness as much as it was an endorsement for nominee Hillary Clinton. He focused on American values that can unite citizens across all parties – values that the Republican old guard sees being stripped away by nominee Donald Trump and his fans.

Obama drew praise from conservative commentators who disagree with many of his policies, but recognize his values as truly American. While they don’t like the look of Obama’s America, it is wildly preferable to Trump’s America which refuses to espouse the values our nation was founded upon.

Here are a few of our favorites from the conservative tweet storm that followed Obama’s speech:

John Podhoretz was a speech writer for Republican presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.

Erick Erickson is a blogger and speaker who has featured on Fox News.

Tim Miller was a spokesperson for former Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush.

Rory Cooper is a Republican strategist.

Noah Rothman is an editor at the conservative Commentary.

For once American values and optimism are triumphing over partisanship. We applaud Republicans who take a good hard look at Trump and admit that he is not right for our nation.
