Just listened to "Seven" sing our National Anthem - An awesome rendition in my opinion!



Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

I don’t see any surprise speakers listed, unless they mean the Olympians.

Hopefully Romney does a full out defense of his record at Bain and capitalism.

Tweet: Guest speaker RNC=Clint Eastwood. Guest speaker DNC=Sandra Fluke. One kicks ass, one gives up ass.

Looking forward to hearing what Eastwood has to say. Hope he ‘makes my day’.

My guess is Clint Eastwood will be where it says “Remarks To Be Announced” between the Olympians & Bebe Winans & Choir.

Why is that nasty Callista on stage? She’s got as much gravitas as Megan McCain, and she looks like a seagull.

Never understood the appeal Gingrich had here on FR. Yes, he says conservative things, but he’s a lifetime Beltway insider who has enriched himself on the public dole, part of the problem that we need to fix. Callista leaves me cold.

Absolutely. Got most of it from a post on FB and then sent it out on Twitter. It is a hit.

Those on Twitter need to hammer home what a ‘slut’ Fluke is, especially during the DNC convention.

No doubt she is, but right now she does not seem like a very good speaker. Looks like she is just reading.

It just dawned on me......they are trying to keep Newt on a short leash and by allowing the Mrs. on stage with him, he’s neutered (not to make such a sharp point). She’s the boss so and so it went.
It’s too bad. Newt could really do us some good.
