This week #RNC talks economy and jobs. Next week #DNC talks the vagina monologues. #GOP2012
When all is said and done all Obama will have is the media and the far left. He has to hold rallies and trash Republicans to even keep his looney base supporting him. Those idiotic “jokes” that he makes, thats only to appease his looney supporters to even show up at the polls to vote for him, THAT is how bad it is for Obama, he can’t even get his whackos to show up and support him. This is our best chance at taking this country back from the Commie, Romney can hit a home run tomorrow if he really wants to. I never liked Romney, but I will vote for Ryan, just like in 2008, voted for the VP as well, will do the same again
If all college kids watched Ryan’s speech, many of the brain dead libs would become enlightened. He looks like he just walked off his college campus.
Hi Nana Yes indeed Paul Ryan was great, perhaps bring the younger age group along.
Condi also was wonderful.
I’m thinking we will sleep well tonight;)
I attended a relative's wedding over the weekend. The groom's family is Greek Orthodox and the ceremony and prayers were quite beautiful.
Palin was different.
just watched the msnbc goon squad try to rip Scott Walker apart. Why they go on those interviews is beyond me, but Scott stood his ground over the blowhards.
Oh, no idea. I tend to block them out.
Racist, sexist propagandist pigs.
Just flipped over to MSNBC for a bit. Just in time to see Scott Walker do battle against the evil agents. He just put Madcow and Al Sharpless in their place. I mean, he slapped them down.
Condi on Fox NOW.
Great interview on C-Span just now with a Mr. Randall, a delegate from Wisconsin who is African-American. He said that he thought the Republican team had the “intelligence and maturity” to do what has to be done on budget issues. He was then asked some questions that basically boiled down to why he was a Republican. He said he had been a Republican since the civil rights days of the 60’s, was very proud of the Republicans’ role in supporting civil rights, said the civil rights act would not have passed without Republican support, and also said that he was in line with the Republican positions on social issues. A great counter-point to leftist propaganda.
Ryan was everything I had hoped. The last three speakers were just amazing. So glad the night was a success.
I thought he smacked them down.....
She is so great. I love Condi!
The Sailing Condi!
Susana Martinez’s speech was one of my favorites. I had never heard her speak before..WOW, what an amazing Governor. New Mexico is really lucky to have her. She speaks from the heart and she is just a breath of fresh air
Lol, indeed! There just have been so many great speeches, that IF even half of these folks reeeally mean what they say, we ought to be able to call on patriots for the next 20 years, and continue to grow new ones all along!
Strengthen us Lord, we have a long road back.
“Im voting for Ryan and that other guy.”
Well, I certainly am enthusiastic about having Ryan on the ticket, but I also think Romney is far superior to Obama.
If I were going to make a statement somewhat like yours, I might say; “I’m voting for the guys who are in the same party with, and are supported by, Gov. Susana Martinez.”
Not to take anything away from Ryan’s speach, but I thought the Martinez speech was near perfect.
Dr. Rice (in her diplomatic way) b!tchslapped the clownshow on PMSNBC. I could only watch for a few minutes, but it was pretty funny.
I doubt it. Romney has the trait of all successful leaders. Build a good team around you. The better Ryan does the better he looks. Such a change to the Narcissist in Chief mentality of 0 and his clique of toadies
That’s what the best CEO ‘s do.
LOL I agree!
I loved both nights...feeling very happy tonight. :)
Like. Thanks for sharing.
Remember Sarah Palin said Obama said his community organizer
experience was important???
What’s a community organizer?
I guess it’s like a mayor, except you have no responsibilities!!!
She punched OBOZO hard.
Is there still going to be a surprise speaker tomorrow?
Think it’s Clint? Isn’t he in town?
Bingo!! Ryan has what Reagan had and have no doubt...he just broke through the fog of youth with that authentic speech!!
I can hear the youth rising to vote from my living room!!
Ryan has ‘ IT’....have no doubt.
Ryan is the new leader of a whole generation of RUSH BABIES!!
Last night after the Ann Romney and Christie speeches I flipped over to MSNBC for a good laugh. I caught Maddow referring to Al Sharpton as "the professor of oratory". I could not believe it. I quickly changed the channel back. How laughable.
MSNBC is losing it! Hilarious!
Any "surprise" speaker would be anti-climatic after tonight. Hope they have some good speakers lined up. Governor Romney is a given of course.
Clint is gonna speak tomorrow? WHO KNEW!!!!!!!! ;-) LOL
(Bring your Chic-Fil-A sign Clint) ;-)
Good night, FRiends...sleep well. Remember—we can do this! :)
It’s Clint or Trump LoL
I would guess Clint.
I was wrong.
My thoughts exactly as I listened tonight. Sarah's message was right, but Ryan is the right messenger.
Same here but I'm going to end my evening by praying for those poor people in Hurricane Isaac's path.
MSNBC has gotten so bad they are now a parody of a news station. It like watching a Saturday Night Live skit.
Thanks for sharing but no one cares.
Of course, pronounced, “fluckfest” lol.
Thank you LORD!
What a clownshow that was!
Clint is the rumored speaker...Taylor Hicks will perform before Rubio. Ping to the Idol thread. :)
Pass the popcorn! :D
I hope people remember this in contrast to what they will hear from the Dems, and reject the Dems.
My (college/high school aged) kids were glued to Ryan’s speech. They laughed at the music playlist jokes.
“Romney has the trait of all successful leaders. Build a good team around you. The better Ryan does the better he looks.”
You hit the nail on the head and that why Mitt has been successful in business.
Governor, is that you? Get the hell off the beach!
Palin did hit Obama hard with her speech but, it was big on insults with little on substance. I like Sarah a lot, but her speech in 2008 wasn’t as intelligent or genuine as Ryan’s speech tonight, and Ryan comes across as a little more serious. Whats the word we all love to hate? Gravitas.
I know Sarah is a rockstar in this place but that’s my opinion. *runs for cover*
