Chris Mathews is quite wrong.

Candidate Romney gave a very good speech
defending the USA in foreign policy. Very good.

He mentions the “b word”, Bain!

Good! They didn't run away from Bain or minimize it. They made it a major part of tonight's show.

Either he really meant what he said or he is a master of a salesman. Definitely at one time or more I thought of Romney as the pampered poodle pedigreed, filigreed and fed the best feed, but this poodle has venom, fangs and a growl several octaves below an earthquake.

Nicely done mr. Romney, nicely done.

I am beyond stunned. That was amazing......

I never, never, in a million years, would have though he had this kind of fight. If Romney keeps this up, he’s going to humiliate the Hope and Che guy in November.

I loved the Dems response to Ryan saying Obama cut .7 trillion from Medicare.

The screeched no he did not! He just said he would cut .7 trillion to Doctors and hospitals that participate in Medicare!

well duh!

Mitt was singing along with all the verses to America the Beautiful.

I don’t know the words. But there he was.

It really said more than his speech even.

I was so skeptical and cynical about Romney. Then about halfway through his speech, I started clapping...and by the end, I was crying. I told someone earlier today that we would see fireworks coming after Romney sealed the nomination. I think now that I was more right than I even dreamed.
WE CAN DO THIS!

God save this great nation from the depths of hell that another Obama term will descend us into

From your lips to God's ears. It would all be so easy to wake up to Romney in the White House if people really, really looked at both candidates, their histories, their accomplishments (and, in Obama's case, lack of) rather than just the party affiliations, color of skin, or if they would vote with their minds instead of their emotions.
