Boehner came out on stage like Will Farrell’s character in Old School after being shot in the neck with a Tranquilizer gun.

The gals post endlessly on the so-called war on women...men on gay issues. I will start hiding their posts from my newsfeed.

OMG, brit said it was a good speach, but not a great speach...:(

Yes, and I find myself less and less interested in what Hume has to say as time goes by. It's been that way for a while now.

A lib friend sent me the NY Slimes hit piece on "fact checking" Ryan's speech. I sent her the Hot Air "fact checking the fact checkers" post that completely refuted what the NYSlimes article said.

I did exactly the same thing with a lib FB friend. I haven't heard back yet.

If you watch Boehner on a regular basis at all, you will note that he is ALWAYS acting borderline drunk. He is a walking talking “Functional Alcoholic”!!!!!!!! And I agree, we need to get him the hell OUT of the Speakers chair!

A good word for Romney? I’m stunned. That said, I did not expect much from this speech, and nothing on foreign policy, but he knocked it out of the park. David Limbaugh tweeted “Bravo x10!”

Yeah, I’m surprised Brit didn’t give Mitt’s speech more credit. The Fox Panel is trying to make it sound like Mitt’s a problem solver, not a speech giver.

And that is what this country needs!

You know something.

I think Eastwood may have been an Obama plant.

You can hate me for this but I’m with the media on this one thinking it was the most bizarre thing I’ve ever seen. He is much smarter than that.

And I fear he stole the buzz from Romney. Will people be talking about Romney’s speech tomorrow or Clint Eastwood?

CNN did a very professional job. Aside from a few snide remarks from James Carville, the reporters and analysts just let the speakers speak and delivered fairly straightforward commentary afterwards.

"Now they are claiming Clint used the F word LOL!"

The only F word was; "FORGET".

Eastwood: "And we should not ever forget that.
And when somebody does not do the job,
we got to let them go."

I thot she looked absolutely fine both nights. She is a lovely young woman and mom—looking good for 3 kids IMHO.

She is from Janesville, Wisconsin~a wonderful iconic mid-western small city/town. I think the fact that she is not striving for haute couture is part of her appeal. IMHO she truly is classy refreshing, and down-to-earth.

I am a little surprised that the take away of a few is a negative opinion of Paul Ryan’s wife’s apparel choice.

Brit also said was it enough to convince people he can do the job...which is critical when trying to beat an incumbent.

He won me..he inspired the delegates and those people will be in the trenches helping him get elected.

Hi ya Star.

One thing I am noticing on mslsd the nbc people Kelly O'Donnel what ever and F chuck are very careful now about dissing Mitt. They know he will be potus and are already watching what they say.

The mslsd people on the other hand are freaked out zombie vampires out for blood.

They are already building talking points, a cold war with Russia and shooting war with Iran,it never ends with these clowns.
