MY LIVING ROOM COUCH It was the political convention that almost wasn't. In the run-up to the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., Democrats and their fellow travelers in the so-called mainstream media claimed that the GOP was waging a "war against women," depicted Mitt Romney as a heartless felon responsible for the death of a woman who lost her health insurance and blasted Romney for choosing Paul Ryan as his running mate. They then tried to define Ryan as a heartless ideologue who would eliminate Medicare and throw grandmothers off a cliff. And then a tropical storm-turned-hurricane named Isaac threatened to blow the entire convention away.
As Isaac churned through the Gulf of Mexico, Republican leaders and the Romney campaign revised the entire convention schedule and postponed the proceedings by 24 hours. That wasn't good enough for the potentates of the press. The GOP was castigated for going ahead with its convention while "a terrible storm" was "causing so much death and destruction." We were reminded repeatedly that Isaac had hit the Louisiana and Mississippi coastlines on "the seventh anniversary of Katrina." One commentator, a former ABC and PBS political director, reporting for Yahoo News from the convention hall, said Republicans "are happy to have a party with black people drowning."
It was a perfect storm of media hostility coupled with breathless live reports of wind, rain and flooding, all timed to disrupt and distract attention from the events in Tampa.

Thanks for the ping on that one jaz. We DID watch the TV last night. Didn’t see anything controversial about Clint Eastwood’s schtick. Just some good humor. Jug Ears hasn’t any.
What does the fact that 0bama is half-white have to do with anything?
I don't see the point of emphasizing non-relevant racial minutia...

BECAUSE he says he’s BLACK.. not white but BLACK.. and he isn’t..
He’s no blacker than he is white.. i.e. racial pimping..
Actually millions of blacks are not black at all..
Being “black” has become a privileged “CLASS”...
becoming the same with “Hispanic”... racial politics..
Much of America is high on something and dumber than a post..
especially the “bitches” <<-sorry about the ebonics..
