I’m lost on the eruptions....is someone protesting? (and, no I don’t think he was trying to be clever with the you need an American...but it’s appropriate!)

Talking about going out on his early life when he was making his own career. (sidenote - Romney is a very sentimental man.)

I think the occasional trembles in his voice are real. I’d like to think so at any rate.

Does everyone realize that the only reason why Mitt is talking about women now is because that propagandist jerk George Stephanopoulos forced this ridiculous charge on the GOP during the primary?

Wow. What a waste the media is.

He is doing well by bringing up the “Republicans hate Women” event in Charlotte. The producers have also done well by bringing up Romney’s past.

Obama has no past, and his Presidency is a failure.

McCain lost over being this way and it makes me wonder if we'll see another flop
over being affraid to attack Obama on the real issues.
Rubio hit it right at least.

Next week’s gathering will be nothing like this one.

Nope.

"America sucks" "Republicans hate women and non-white people (that will be hollow after this RNC), and Obama's speech: "I inherited a mess--such a big mess that I couldn't fix it four years. Please give me four more!"

Sounds like a winner, lol.

I would have loved him to quote his Outlaw Josey Wales speech:

Now remember, when things look bad and it looks like you’re not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. ‘Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win.

It is showing a side of Romney that we never see...his soft side. I hope he addresses the energy crisis, environmentalists, health care and more and he very well may do just that..stay tuned.

I’m sure you’re an expert but you leave the “red meat” speeches for the underlings. A Presidential nominee should come across, above all, pragmatic.

Only my opinion as I’m not the expert that you are.

It’s not a question of what I want. I don’t care what he says because he already has my vote. (I’d vote for the neighbors’ Golden Retriever, at this point.) The question is, is this speech calibrated to rouse the troops and sway those who are sitting on the fence? Red meat would not do it. He has to persuade people that he’s not a store mannikin, he’s not fake, he’s not a robot. This is the speech that was necessary to show the human side.

***Next week’s gathering will be nothing like this one. ***

Will the networks decide that they “erred” in not showing more of the RNC speakers, and choose to show hours and hours of the DNC without talking over the speakers?

Or, will they know how horrible the DNC speakers are likely to be, and choose not to air very much at all?

You know something’s wrong when the best you feel about obama is on the day you elected him.

obama’s problem is he knows nothing about business....jobs to him are about govt.

jokes about not investing his pensioner’s funds. If he lost their money, he didn’t want to go to hell, too.

Brings up Staples....glad to see the obama campaign has been shopping there.
