Following day two of the Republican National Convention, Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer reacted to vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan’s address at the GOP convention, calling it “bold” and “effective.”

“[Ryan] went way beyond just the attacks — which he did extremely effective — like stiletto attacks, each one a short jab that left a mark,” he said. ”

In one of the best received lines of his RNC speech, Ryan said, “College graduates should not have to live out their 20s in their childhood bedrooms, staring up at fading Obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life.”

Krauthammer said the line “cleverly reminded people…of the fact that Obama has disappointed them. He had so much promise.”

He also said that there was a theme of “American exceptionalism”in both Ryan and Condoleezza Rice’s speech, each reminding Americans that Obama is conducting a “war on success.”

“It was thought that the first night of the convention was to be the night where Obama had his skin ripped off and the case against was made – and that night had been lost. Well, Ryan did that tonight,” Fox News political analyst Brit Hume said of Ryan’s speech.

He continued: “He probably did that job pretty well in the eyes of a great many people out across this country. The speech was interesting, it was compelling, it had humor and the moment when he mentioned his mother his pride in her […] that was worth a lot too in terms of the sense that this is a nice young man. A nice young man who delivered nonetheless a lethal shot night.”
