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.
