My first thoughts after looking at both candidate’s speeches were the total and utter disrespect showedby Mr. Mondale and Mrs. Ferrarro.If you go back and watch the debates between President Reagan andPresident Carter, Reagan always shows respect and courtesy to President Carter and also address’s himas “President or President Carter”.During the acceptance speeches by Mondale and Ferrarro bothcandidates repeatedly address President Reagan as “MR. Reagan” continually through out both videos.Personally, I found this very disrespectful.What also stood out in my mind was the fact that PresidentCarter never had the loyalty much less respect of his own party during his tenure in office.Mondalebeing his former Vice President would have been fully aware of this and unless he stabbed his own boss(Carter) in the back, and his speech alludes to himself distancing himself from Carter, he just does notcome across as a candidate I would trust or believe in.
