It really makes me sick to see some of the names of the speakers and know that Sarah Palin is not speaking. I don't care if you are a Palin fan or not, IT IS NOT RIGHT. I hate Romney and I will be all over him and the GOP the minute we kick Obama out of office. If Obama wins, I will fight for a third party.

I don’t want to have false expectations but I think Ryan is going to have a barnburner of a speech tonight. I hope he drops the “Don’t mention Obama” narrative and comes out swinging.

Palin was invited and declined. Get over it. There’s plenty of opportunity to listen to her elsewhere.

I don’t know that he will. It seems they have made a strategic decision (much to my disappointment) not to attack Obama.

Republicans canceled their Monday Convention schedule -

Tuesday night during her speech at the RNC Ann Romney added comments about those in path of the hurricane -

- But Obama just kept having fundraisers on Monday and Monday night - “Show me the Money!”

Clinton Eastwood will be in Tampa and return home Friday night -

TV Networks spiked speeches by minorities at the RNC - Those networks - and their sponsors need to be whacked hard - in their wallets

Speaking of Sarah Palin...Cspan was playing her acceptance speech today from 2008 and I cried all the way through it thinking about what the democrats,Hollywood and even the GOPe did to that poor woman. I thought about what might have been and watched how electric the crowd was...what a great job she did...what a great leader and president she would have made.

Why in the world did the republican establishment allow the smearing of her...why did some of them join in on the smearing? I know the answers...just throwing it out there. She was indeed another Reagan!! So full of promise and potential. I remember talking to some of my son’s female friends after her speech and they were ecstatic! I had never seen my son’s generation so excited about a political leader or even politics very much.

I guess the greedy politicians and the leftists had to destroy her.....she was just too good. I hate them for that and will never forgive those on our side for being such cowards and vermin. She truly had it all!!

So sad.

Obama cannot top Clint Eastwood with sore-loser Charlie Crist next week -

It will be great if Clint makes an appearance at the RNC -

-

I saw a bit of Mia Love and Artur Davis on clips today

Dynamic and exciting speakers - no shyness or baloney from either of them

They scare Obama, the radical plantation left and the media

I agree and it makes me sick. So obvious what has been going on and some of our fellow FRiends are helping the GOP to shaft Palin. I also just read on facebook that fox canceled her interview for tonight. If true there is no doubt they are in bed with romney/gop.

Why would they do that?? Sarah is no threat to Romney...she can only help!! I am afraid the GOPe is going to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory yet again!! They are refusing to go after Obama. His socialist policies have been a disaster and his lawlessness is impeachable material for cryin out loud!!

Other than the sweet speech from Ann last night, this convention has so far been a dud in my humble opinion. It is not that hard to explain our policies and why conservatism works every time it’ s tried!! And all this going easy on Obama...Big mistake!!

The point of the speeches was to get to the 5% of the voters that count—The Independents—the ONLY voters that count...not you or even the base:

1. Independents don’t want ‘attack”... they want pragmatism.
2. Independents and especially those that voted for Obama before want to know its ok to change their minds. They are not angry about Obama like we are, they are sad that it didn’t work out. We need those votes.
3. Anyone who does not see Obama as a socialist or lawless will not be changed in one night...they need to be told what they feel already, the economy is not working and we need a different , more pragmatic approach.

I have heard that argument and it does have it’s merits however given that the base is really not that thrilled with Romney to begin with..they could at least get someone up there to throw us some red meat for crying out loud.

Especially after what they did yesterday with the tyrannical rules change. They are going to run off the only folks out here that can actually get them elected. What good does it do to get some independents if you lose twice as many conservatives at the same time?

I hope Ryan can save this thing tonight. So far the whole thing has been underwhelming.

Goodness, y’all been watching Isaac.

New Orleans area really suffering but folks, this time I don’t see a bunch of sympathy for those who ignored the mandatory evacuation.

Shepherd Smith giving the low down, gotta love that goof.

Who picked the "Back in the Game" band?

Fools. Hope he doesn't break his hip running around crazy like he is having a seizure.

Sorry to be so mean, but that was a useless waste of time. It did not give GOP street cred or anything.

I suspect she’ll be the “mystery” speaker tomorrow. There’s a big hole without her speaking. I like her, not over-the-top nuts over her, but still feel that her absence makes no sense. That’s why I think she’ll be there.
