2:10 p.m. Announcement of Recess

This is a huge mistake. Monday's weather will be fine in Tampa, just rain, and Issac will still be over the Gulf. Romney needs to re-fill Monday's schedule.

9:40 - Bush 41, 43 Film

That should NOT be in prime time

8:00 p.m. Remarks by Governor former Jeb Bush (FL)

This should be cancelled, using ":time constraints" as the excuse. Jeb is a disgrace.

That’s unfortunate that Trump won’t be there. I see a lot of RINOs and establishment types that will probably say what a nice guy Hussein is instead of undressing him for the marxist he is.

Good job. They beat the media at it’s own game and got Ann Romney on prime-time TV.

Yep, Trump won’t be there.

If this convention fails to expose Obama for who he is and what another 4 years means, we deserve to lose in November. If I was advising them, I’d simply read off every single lie he’s told from the campaign all the way to last week.

Good, I won’t have to skip my diuretics.

Besides Saintorum, Huckabeee, Bush and Rice, I see a couple more invitees listed that will give me plenty of time for my bathroom breaks.

“Remarks by Governor Bob McDonnell (VA), accompanied by Bev Gray “
Bev Gray: a NOVA business owner, ‘Exhibit Edge Inc.’.

Should have some juicy things to say in prime time about small business, Va., women, and Obama.

Networks will have to cut away for something LOL!

He has a interesting rage of things he can do with his music.

I was wondering about that. He’s been tweeting about the ‘surprise’ for weeks. It was originally scheduled for tomorrow.

I read some of the most obscure names in the GOP.
Artur Davis, the ex democrat stands out.

Missing is the most dynamic speaker and most dynamic voice in the Republican Party. Mitt Romney is a piece of cow manure
for not inviting Sarah Palin. What an ass. What an ego maniac. He’s scared of being upstaged by Palin. Whether he wins or not, Romney and the rest of the RINO asses that control the party should be ashamed of themselves for the way they have treated this woman. It’s sickening.

Your sentence took me a moment to absorb. Obama himself is an impersonator and he is laughable in a sad kind of way.
He is purported to be black as well.

Start Debt Clocks

I don’t like that. What is that about? To Show that both parties can’t stop spending? That is weird. When we had all three President, House and Senate, the Republicans spent like there was no tomorrow. Out of everything on the schedule, this is what I personally would take out if I was in charge.

I look forward to hearing the only conservative on the docket Senator Rick Santorum. Hopefully this is the speech to begin his 2016 Presidential run. God hopefully will allow us this great patriot as President of the United States. After Obama and Romney, he will be welcome by all.

Welcome to Free Republic. I noticed both of you are relatively new on this site. Do either of you live in Missouri?

No, I would not wish that on anyone including Todd. I understand you might be saying this as a joke but I consider it in bad taste.
