My husband was standing here and said the Romney campaign should just put that in an ad and run it over and over again until election day.

Your husband is so right. I hope someone at Romney's camp or in a SuperPAC does just that. Of course, I'd have to up the dose on my blood pressure medicine, but I'll make that sacrifice!

I guess that maybe obama could get a woman to give a testimony that while he was state senator of Illinois, he tried to relieve her the burden of a child that survived abortion to let slowly die in a laundry closet.
Somehow I don’t think that the evil obama wants to remind us of that.

I’ll not be watching next week. I would have to have my blood pressure cuff on and the ER on speed dial to watch.

Time to put in my winter garden.

It has been reported that the “mystery speaker” will be Clint Eastwood. He is a former California mayor, after all.

I really like the commercials. They should run these nationally.

I agree and hope so. There have been so many great commercials all through out the convention but no one has seen them unless you are watching C-SPAN.

Thanx for the thread...
Anyone notice the lack of military presence, especially after the loss of life these past weeks.?
Talk about a vulnerability for Obummer..
Maybe because noone on the ticket has served?
Just wondering...

I am more than willing to vote for Romney, regardless of his religion. We are, after all, electing a political leader, not a spiritual leader.

So I’d like for him to keep it that way.

I would assume that you know something about Mormonism. If so, you know that there are beliefs that are, to put it mildly, odd and far out of the mainstream.

Romney can follow whatever ideology he chooses; that’s one of our most precious guarantees. But he is highly vulnerable to Democrat attempts to put a spotlight on the wackiness of Mormonism, including the magic underwear, mythical gold plates, and, of course, Kolob. Continually bringing it up when unnecessary and stressing how immersed he is in it is opening that door.

Surely his friends could tell their stories of his largesse without cloaking it in Mormonism. They leave the impression that his social circle is confined to his church.

In addition, repeatedly throwing his religion in our faces causes those of us who think that it is bonkers to once more question his good judgement. That is a serious concern, not insecurity.

I think Romney would give up his POTUS salary. He did in Massachusetts as governor. He probably makes the POTUS salary every week in interest alone on his current wealth - not that that’s a bad thing.

Truth is obama is not real. He’s totally Manchurian and a made up comic figure designed by David plouffe, the marxist david the bent axel and Valeire Jarrett acting president for the acting president.
