It's magical thinking. Those other people ~ the democrats ~ the tradition is that given a choice between a real democrat and a fake democrat, they'll chose the real democrat every time.

They've got Romney's drift ~ they know who he is. I really don't think he'll get any of their votes. That means he needs Republicans.

I would have liked to have heard Allen West make a speech. Instead they are going to feature Artur Davis, a former Alabama Democrat congressman. Both are good. Allen West of course is a great speaker and a bit of a firebrand. Davis is more Ivy League. Would have enjoyed both being there!

I honestly do thin Reince Preibus is a genius.

What he has done to turn blue Wisconsin to red is nothing short of amazing.

He also doesn't want any more baby's killed.

Let's hear some details on that from the Mittbots.

I think Romney is telling a lie. These people get a taste of baby flesh they just won't let go.

The folks arranging the program KNOW that things like this ~ ~ are NOT part of Romney’s campaign, and they’ll do everything they can to keep any SOCON issues like that from being mentioned during the campaign. Frankly, I”m not at all surprised to find Romney doesn’t particularly care one way or the other about Christians being crucified, nor does his spirit brother Obama.

Naw, Preibus is far from being a genius ~ he’s a Mittbot and the Wisconsin thing is Walker’s creation.
