Clint Eastwood did Mitt some good, but the Conservative base is going to have to drag LOSER Romney over the finish line.
"Establishment Republicans" just don't get it.

Meaningless poll - look at the source. 98% of WAPO’s readership are liberal. If this poll stays up through the weekend “Yes” might catch up ith “No”. But, again, meaningless.

I have no idea, I didn't watch a minute of that production.

Empty. The energy spent to write this post is more than all the energy within that stupid poll. 99% of the negative voters are WAPO employees trying to keep a job.

Is it possible, if you vote “NO”, that they have it set up that the no poll voters can vote no again?

Anybody heard of that?.....just saying.

If Romney wins, it will be because people voted AGAINST OBAMA, not FOR ROMNEY.

Just too bad Clint Eastwood isn’t the nominee.

There’s only one poll that will say it all and that will be in 66 days.

"Did the Republican national convention help Mitt Romney's chances in the presidential election?"

I stopped buying the WaPo when I worked in DC -- during the Reagan administration! Because the editorials started on Page One!

What they probably mean is: "Did the Republican national convention help Mitt Romney's chances to lose the presidential election?" No, it did not.

I hope that a President Romney takes a Weedwacker to the slimy bureaucrats and lawyers who inhabit DC.

No, Obamabots pretending to be “Uber Conservatives” don't get it.

Romney or Obama will be the next President. When you spend all your time trash talking Romney, you are actively working to elect Obama.

That may not be your intent, it is the result of your actions

45/55 is pretty good for a DNC house organ.

I feel better about voting for him than I did before the convention.
Really looking forward to the Ryan/Biden debate.

One thing both Ryan and Romney better prepare for, substantiate the $716 bil. cut from Medicare statement.
Better have page and paragraph on the tip of their tongue. That one is going to be hotly disputed.

The media coverage of the GOP convention was bad. Lots of people turned it off. The Democratic Convention will be a freak show in a weird undisciplined circus.

Wrong question. Should be, Did Romney’s take over of the Republican Party, eliminating participation by the Tea Party and Conservatives from now on, help Romney’s chances in the presidential election?

Obviously you haven't read: He expressed some important issues that I agree with.


I'm fresh out of "patience", and I'm not in the mood for "compromise".
"COMPROMISE" to me is a dirty word.
Let the RINO's compromise their values, with the conservatives, for a change.

The "Establishment Republicans" can go to hell!
