He gave a speech?

Well, if he did, I suspect it was all lies; so I give it a Zero.

Obama used the word “choice” some 20x...I’m surprised he didn’t say..”America has a black & white choice this election.”

I didn’t watch one minute of their hateful convention.

I’m praying the Marxist and his evil admin are “1 and done” and it’s looking good that they are.

The entire convention was pathetic. It’s the first convention I’ve seen that provided footage for the opposition to make ads.

That would be wonderful, but I think it is going to be much closer than that. The productive vs. leecher class is almost 50/50 now. The best hope that we have is that they are less disciplined and too lazy to go to the polls.

Now, it’s Mitt’s to lose.

Still, after last night's convention/zoo CF, hopefully it's indicative of serious depression among the ranks of the lefty pukes prone to seminar spamming and poll manipulation !

Better yet, and in combination therewith, perhaps Clint's published interview has large numbers of them on suicide watch . . .   ;-)

How odd? I voted after your post and the poll is only showing 1,881 total votes? Some scrubbing going on behind the scenes? Do they block referring address (i.e. FreeRepublic.com) addresses?

Actually, I just bought a new TV and I was afraid that I'd throw my shoe at it.

Too bad. My natural instinct is to see and hear both sides to anything... but with Liberal politicians, it's all too predictable and nauseating.

Liberals behave as if America has only ONE party, and has never had ...should never have more than one party... THEIRS!

I don't think that will work. Actually, there isn't a place on earth where it works or has EVER worked!

You don't need a Ph.D. in political science or history to know that.

I give it a D. About the same as I gave Romney. I didn't watch the speech, but I just read the transcript, looking for an economic plan. Here's my notes.

That's it. His economic plan is as empty as Romney's. No mention of international trade at all. Weak energy plan. But takes credit for increased energy independence, even though it's the result of a depressed economy and drilling that has happened despite Obama.

We are so screwed for the next 4 years.

I can’t stand to look at him or listen to the sound of his voice. I hit the mute button and pick up a magazine when he’s on or switch channels.

“I didn’t watch one minute of their hateful convention.”

I watched a bit of Joe Biden’s introduction. My wife and I watched Gabbby’s Pledge after the convention ended. I did watch Castro give his speech because I am a San Antonian.

I did tell my wife and kids, I will watch until the first outright lie is told. My convention experience lasted 10 minutes.

I’ve heard better dog farts.

I mean seriously, sometimes my dog will fart and I am just like WOW, how did he even do that!?

But that speech was just YAWN, FAIL, ladders of opportunity, oh boy.

Dude sounded like he was trying to be the gubment poet or something.

I couldn’t watch his speech...I had a hang nail.

Thought I would watch it, but couldn't even manage to sit through Joey Baghdad Biden's BS.

His pretense of being choked up about the military (depicted by a series of overwrought choking sounds) was such a horrible piece of hambone acting that I had to shut off the tv.

...at that’s by people that actually watched. I didn’t but for a few seconds, then I couldn’t take it any more - it just seemed like he was trying to raise the enthusiasm he was able to create last time.

Except this time it isn’t.

I noticed that too- I don’t know exactly how those polls work, but I’ve seen that before. I think that maybe they update the totals in batches or something like that. But I have seen some that update immediately.
