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.
My Mitt crush from four years ago is back. :)
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.
Clint served the venison.
i believe they were drowned out by the crowd yelling U-S-A! U-S-A...it seemed odd they were yelling it as Romney was talking....
ITS NOT ABOUT YOU!!!
Its for the 3-5% that will determine this election!
Grow up or just go sit in your garage throwing red meat around with your friends!
Watching through YT and you can hear every smack.
did you miss something? Clint?
That BET feed is scary. MSNBC with foul mouths really.
Same back atcha... you betcha!
"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.
Romney needs a home run speech, but so far it’s BORING!
Oh, go away.
Not quite sure I have ever seen anything like this at a convention.
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.
Asking why people who voted for BO were more excited on Election Day 2008 than they are now.
He got choked up there for a minute. Have you ever seen Barry show real sentiment?
I would swear he just stole a Dean Martin joke!!
“Jobs to him (Obama) are about government.” (no kidding)
Boring? Oh well you can’t please ‘em all I guess.
I don’t think he’s a red meat kinda guy...
He just hit ‘Bummer....feeling better?
Romney getting to the red meat. Obama never had any experience at business.
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.
Everyone loved Dino.
He mentions the “b word”, Bain!
#BETRNC disgronification is hilarious...
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.
Relax, Romney will gut Obama through media buys just like he gutted Newt. All in good time.
This speech is a master class in politics.
I’ve tried to like Romeny. I just can’t.
He remains gross and fake.
Shame as I hate Obama and like Ryan.
Do Mormons believe in Hell??????
Please.. The Romney campaign has hit Obama 1000 times harder than McCain ever did.
Nothing short of Mitt chanting “Obama is the devil!” 20 times in a row will appeal to you people!
OK I heard the USA chant but didn't hear the Code Pinkos. Good.
Narcissists aren’t capable of that.
Mitt is genuine American.
“If my investors lost their money, that would be bad, but I didn’t want to go to Hell, too.” lol
They have apparently determined that no African Americans are allow at the RNC. I guess they watched the MSNBC broadcast that edited most out.
***Next weeks 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?
If you didn’t get it, the pundits will show it.
you could hear a little disruption in the background....it was drowned out by the “U-S-A” chants...i was waiting for the cameras to move there as they did when McCain spoke but saw nothing...
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.
