Just got our power back an hour or so ago!
VERY MUCH wanted to see Newt Gingrich and RWR’s Legacy Video.
Opening invocation now.
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.
Romney, Tonight: I wish President Obama had succeeded because I want America to succeed.
Sure didn’t lose anything by cutting it to 3 days
Thanks for the schedule and post. Sounds like FNC will resume coverage in a few minutes.
I want to see BOR’s blockbuster interview with McCain....LOL..
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’.
Prepare to be underwhelmed...
My guess is Clint Eastwood will be where it says “Remarks To Be Announced” between the Olympians & Bebe Winans & Choir.
I am watching on C-Span.One can only take so much of Shep Smith.
I hope you’re all right tonight!
Yep! Watching Ronnie now. God I miss him.
I miss him too. I can’t watch this without tearing up.
I know what you mean. Was mostly on the laptop and waiting.
I have tears. He was the best. One in a trillion.
Best President ever!!!!! RIP Ronnie!!! Forever shall we miss you!!!
Will he have the “nerve” to say that? I hope so but don’t count on it.
That was a great tribute to Ronald Reagan!
Newt Gingrich on now...
Why is that nasty Callista on stage? She’s got as much gravitas as Megan McCain, and she looks like a seagull.
That is so true!
LOL, that was great. May I quote you?
Watching on C-Span. Just can’t take the talking heads.
Comparing Carter to Obama!

Friday: Two hours devoted to Muslim prayers lead by radical Muslim Clerics who would replace our Constitution with the Quran and the dummycrats rejected an offer of a Catholic Cardinal to offer a blessing. And the wet-pantie libs want us to believe Odumbo isn’t a Muslim. Sure
What????? Newt and Calista are acting like it’s the academy awards!!!! What an embarrassment.
May I have the envolope please???
Having Callista on is slowing things down too much. Not working.
Agreed. She is just reading. I expected more from Newt.
I miss President Reagan so much. He will never be equaled.
I am disappointed in Newt. He’s so much better than this.
I’ve met her in person and she’s gracious and lovely!
Yeah I don’t get the double team either.
This is what you get when pubbies decide to stupidly “address” the war on women meme.
Oh my - thanks for the good laugh tonight. Hillary dodging sniper fire...lololo
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.
