    Use of evidence: 4.2 3

    Responsiveness to opponent: 4 3.6
    Identification of key points: 3 3
    Comments: COMMENTS FOR THE PROPOSITION:
    I think you handled the speed argument well. I think that providing a copy of the speech and slowing down in the next speech resolves the oppositions arguments about the rate of delivery, given that there is not an impact in the previous speech.
    COMMENTS FOR THE PROPOSITION CLOSING:
    You are a little top-heavy; you could spend a bit more time on answering her arguments in the closing rather than leaving them for the bottom of the speech.
    COMMENTS FOR THE OPPOSITION:
    I agree that his rate of delivery would be hard to understand if you werent use to it. You should go into detail when you say I should consider this in judging. What do you mean by this? That I shouldnt evaluate all his arguments, that I should give you leeway in being responsive to his speech, or that I should automatically vote him down b/c his speed if unfair? Otherwise you are leaving it to my discretion of what I should do about it in terms of judging.
    Turn your rhetorical questions into arguments. Instead of asking where are the alternatives for people who are violent offenders? say something like there ARE NOT alternatives for.. violent offenders, and the proposed alternatives dont work/are bad b/c
    Incorporate your oral citations into the body of the speech rather than stating it at the end.
    COMMENTS ON OPPOITION CLOSING:
    I think you could spend your time arguing why closing Guantanamo Bay would be bad rather than saying he doesnt affirm the resolution. Also, you need to spend some time in the last speech telling me exactly what I should vote on.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Christian Chessman

    Reason for Decision:

    REASON FOR DECISION:
    The opposition doesnt provide any argument against closing Guantanamo Bay, which is the thesis of the propositions argument. Therefore, I vote for the proposition.
    I do have sympathy for the opposition debaters inability to fully understand the proposition b/c of the rate of delivery, I am not given a compelling argument for why I should vote against the proposition debater for this. I dont think theres a voting issue issued in the oppositions speeches.
