Last week I was not able to make it to class at all. Thursday I went to CPAC where I was able to see all the republican candidates and President Bush speak. From an acting point of view, it is unbelievable the way that the politicians will feed off of the audience and the audience feeds off the speaker. I dont think that the audience sometimes realizes what the speakers are doing. The speaker would intentionally raise his voice and start to speak louder whenever he wanted the audience to applaud and go insane. However, whenever the audience would react unexpectedly the speaker would have to adjust to the circumstances. It was fascinating.
