On RNC stage, nettlesome issues unmentioned
Associated Press ^ | August 29, 2012 | Beth Fouhy

Viewers tuning into the Republican National Convention have heard Ann Romney speak lovingly of her husband and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie pledge "a new era of truth telling." What they haven't heard is talk of offshore tax havens, Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin, or questions about President Barack Obama's birthplace - the kind of divisive issues that have bedeviled Mitt Romney in the weeks before formally accepting his party's presidential nomination.

The Main Stream Media Morons would feel better if the GOPe would talk more about: Offshore Tax Havens, Todd Akin, Obama's Birthplace, Gay Marriage, and (of course) George Bush.

Well just to make sure that none of these spurious issues are forgotten, AP is right on it, which is more than they’ve ever brought themselves to do for their master Hussein.

The sour grapes and bile from the Left are just getting started. They are spiral-eyed crazy with hate.

And I’m sure the AP will run a similar story during the DNC convention about how “Fast and Furious”, “Solyndra”, and the like aren’t mentioned?

What’s the matter, Beth? Isn’t the Republican Convention getting bogged down in the social issues that you want to report on? Is the party actually focusing on jobs and government spending and issues where your boss, Obama, is weak?

If Romney/Ryan had a cure for cancer the lib/dem media would condemn them for not finding it 10 years ago.

It’s the media’s job to ruin the Repubs don’t cha’ know? /s/

Oh, Beth — the very last thing you want is a discussion about Obama’s birth certificate. That discussion would most likely engender conversations about his college education, passport records, friendship with Bill Ayers, etc., etc. — a very large can of worms.

Best let sleeping dogs lie Beth.

Beth Fouhy bills herself as a “political reporter”, but she’s not actually a reporter. She’s an agenda-driven propagandist, nothing more. Like so many others.

Too bad she doesn’t have the character to admit it.

Wait, they are on to something! The Dems at their convention, should talk exclusively about those issues. Bring up the fact that Obama isn't an American and has a forged birth certificate. Bring up Todd Akin who is now BEATING Claire McCaskill by 3 points. Off shore accounts? That's what you got?

BRING IT ON! You FOOLS. LOL, LOL, LOL, LOL, LOL, LOL, LOL, LOL, LOL, LOL, LOL, LOL, LOL, LOL, LOL.

A bunch of bluster I think, but the rumor I saw reported on was that he was hiring a Barry look alike and he was going to sit there and say “you’re fired”. Stupid stunt that would distract from everything positive I see. Who knows if it was true.

Yes, oh yes...nothing will solve the high unemployment, the massive government overspending, the deficit, the debt, the coming shortage of doctors and other healthcare professionals faster than everyone finding out all about how much Romney paid in taxes.

All our problems will be solved if we can just get all of Romney's tax information for the last 20 years.

We could probably turn Detroit and the other smoldering liberal cesspools into centers of prosperity where we see 100% public literacy rates, full employment, and virtually no violent crime...if we could only get our hands on Romney's tax information.

This is a NEWS REPORT???!?

It reads STRICTLY like an Opinion / Editorial.

There's no point to turning to the Opinion page any more. Just read the front page.

The most American person in Obama’s childhood was Lolo Soetoro.

"The most American person in Obama’s childhood was Lolo Soetoro."

Exactly.

Which is why his mother sent Obama to live with his Grandmother, and selected Frank Marshall Davis to be his mentor! Obama is living the dreams from his father, but his mother is the one who is responsible for what he is.

Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin

This guy makes one remark that makes him sound like a Kennedy or Joe Biden, and the liberals try to make him into Abu Graiv.

Sounds like an opinion piece, not a news story.
