So if ... enthusiasm is so high, why did the DNC bus in people to the convention and give away tickets in bars? ... This guy needs to lay off the Kool-Aid.

Guess this kool-aid drinker didn't hear about the stadium being canceled due to storms - that were NOT forecast and never occurred... Did this love sick journalist miss that?

There were people who were enthused - they were the extreme party faithful AND members of the press.. neither group represent the people.

No need to get nasty and try to humiliate the poster. But, now that you’ve started it, are you a public school teacher?

I try to catch R/R’s campaign stops on C-Span. Sometimes live other times recorded. But there are no commercials or cut-outs and you get to really hear what they have to say.

I learn something new every time I watch .... and walk away wanting Romney/Ryan even more to be at America’s helm.

It’s such a pile of BS, I skimmed it. Comparing the hatred we hold towards Obama and Clinton is ridiculous. Never in HISTORY has a Democrat been so despised.

Oh cute another 5 IQ post full of hysteric and name calling rather then a single rational fact

How about this, try making a rational case rather then scream hysteric bile at everyone else?

There has been a shocking transformation in the American political landscape.

As Jeff Zeleny of The New York Times tweeted Thursday night: “A striking difference between conventions: Military service, patriotism are center stage at Democratic convention and nearly absent at GOP.”

Virtually overnight, the Democrats have become the party of strength and loyalty to country. This is a huge role reversal.

This part made me wonder: did some political generals okay the repeal of DADT with the understanding that the Democrat power brokers would clamp down on the hippie element? Was there a backroom deal?

More SPIN from SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS. More reasons they will lose in November. 1) Blew it on GOD. 2) Clint cleaned their clock exposing them as nothing but EMPTY CHAIRS. 3) CNBC host got spanked by RYAN when trying to defend and spin for obama on his bad economic policies. The look in the hosts eyes was all telling. He had the same answers as the democrats have. ZERO. It was a mis-informed democrat against a seasoned pro with the right facts on his side. No contest in November.

Lost a good job in 1997 with a company that Bain had bought and sold to Staples. Had a really bad taste in my mouth in refenerce to Mr. Romney. But like you I have been paying attention and doing a little research.
Now I’m voting R&R because I believe they can get us back on the correct path to My USA.

I don’t expect Hussein to win, but I would not be surprised if he STOLE the election.

I really wish Mark Levin had a prime time show on FOX or somewhere on TV. He needs to replace Bill O or Hannity.

Your are right. Romney does have a plan. Saying he doesn’t is a dem talking point.

Maybe the pollsters tilt their polls each way purposely so they won’t be accused of being in the tank for one over the other—just a thought. Keeps people reading them too.

“the most electable general election candidate in a weak and whacky primary field. “

Note where this guy is coming from. He thinks Obama would be a better President than Newt, Santorum, Perry, Romney and Harman Cain.

My view is the opposite. We had an eclective field, for sure, but every one of them would be a better President than Obama.

Romney isnt well-loved. Maybe. But the crowds in August were bigger for Romney and Ryan than Obama and Biden, and the scaled back Obama convention address was an empty chair giving an empty speech to stir up the faithful with a platform that is leftist extremism.

I just started reading Romney's 87-page plan today.

I'm surprised and impressed.

I admired George Bush's administrative style. But wow. Romney is a different man altogether.

Believe in America is a workout plan.

Agree... Mitt really is great!

After listening to him and reading his plans, I believe in Mitt, his heart, his soul, his committment AND his experience.

I think we have found the right man for these times!

We're rolling! :)

Yeah, Romney has a lot more substance than flair, and is more humble and down to earth, despite the Democrats smears of him being a plutocrats, its the Obama’s that have let power and wealth go to their heads... Romney is different - kind of an anti-Obama in that way:

“I caught a replay of Romney’s visit to Iowa yesterday on C-Span, and damn it...he has thought this through, he really does have a plan, and I sat there realizing this is the right man for the times.

I want R/R to win even more than I want Obama to lose ... and that, my friends is QUITE a lot!

Theres’s good in all that stuff. The testimonials for Romney were powerful ... Romney needs to use this stuff and highlight it.

both Clint and Rubio were fine. The movie was great too.

” Obama, Dubya, and Clinton made plenty of promises as well. Few of the public supporters of any of those 3 were terribly pleased by their presidencies. Obama’s secret financiers and race-pimps are clearly pleased, of course, but few others.”

So what? I am voting FOR Romney and I am sure he wont be as conservative as I would be. so what? Neither was GW Bush.

But on 9/11, I had a profound sense of relief: “Thank God Gore isn’t President.” I knew things would be ok.

I will probably feel that way with Romney on the day he signs Obamacare repeal, and/or the day Ruth Bader Ginsbergy decides to retire.

You don’t vote for a candidate politician because they are perfect, you vote for them because they will do the things the country needs. We need to remove Obama pronto, and we need Romney and his leadership to get our economy back on track.
