    DNC readies 'contingency plan,' watches weather for Obama acceptance speechPosted by CNN Political Reporter Shannon Travis 2 days ago Tampa, Florida (CNN) - Democratic National Convention officials have been anxiously watching the weather for next week when President Obama will deliver his convention speech from an outdoor stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina, a convention official told CNN. Another source said officials have readied a "contingency plan" which would be announced "closer to the convention" should extreme weather strike. **SNIP** When asked to outline what options that plan might include, the source said, "We will only announce contingency plans in the...

    "In his first term, Obama raised the national debt by $5 trillion, seized control of the healthcare sector on behalf of the federal government, and seized control of General Motors on behalf of the tumor that has been killing it, the UAW. How could he top this in a second term? How about by officially repealing the First Amendment? President Barack Obama called for restrictions to be put on political speech during a Wednesday “Ask Me Anything (AMA)” session on the website Reddit, an Internet link-sharing community."

    Okay, so occasionally I watch reality tv--specifically, the real housewives franchise. In fairness, I actually listen to the tv in my kitchen while doing other things. It makes me feel less guilty not to have actually sat down and devoted my entire attention. After all, you can't help feeling squeamish knowing that participants are hand-picked by producers based on their personality disorders and willingness to drink while the cameras are rolling. But, of course, that is what makes these train wrecks, at times, riveting.One of this season's new so-called housewives on the Real Housewives of New York is Carole Radziwill,...
  • The Ryan Vision: Let's Get This Done

    The Democrats and their mainstream media cheering section can huff and puff at Paul Ryan's convention speech, but they can't blow his house down. It was built on a solid foundation. So powerful was the speech that the liberal establishment is reduced to wailing about alleged lies the speech contained -- dishonest and easily refuted allegations. Ryan delivered a substantive indictment of the Obama administration's failed record and a content-rich, realistic plan for putting this nation back on track to economic growth and fiscal recovery, a plan that includes "protecting and strengthening" Medicare, not "raiding" it. Don't listen to the...
  • Romney: 'My Country Deserves Better!' (Acceptance speech excerpts)

    08/30/2012 5:06:27 PM PDT · by GOPinCa · 158 replies
    Here are excerpts of the remarks Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney plans to deliver this evening in Tampa, Florida: Four years ago, I know that many Americans felt a fresh excitement about the possibilities of a new president. That president was not the choice of our party but Americans always come together after elections. We are a good and generous people who are united by so much more than divides us. When that hard fought election was over, when the yard signs came down and the television commercials finally came off the air, Americans were eager to go back to...
  • Jeb Bush to Republicans: ‘Stop Acting Stupid’ on Immigration (Pushing Amnesty Yet Again)

    Stand With Arizona ^ | 08-30-2012 | John Hill
    Tonight, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is addressing the Republican National Convention. Why is he being given that honor, you say? That is a good question, since he is at great odds with both the party's nominee, the party's platform, and the American people on the issue of immigration, and continues to insult us on a weekly basis to pimp his pro-amnesty views that we have consistently rejected. At a forum on immigration, Bush said Republicans aren’t going to close the gap with Hispanic voters until they “stop acting stupid” by being too "tough" on "immigrants" (the usual code for illegal...

    My fellow Americans, my fellow Republicans: The 2012 election is not an election between two men but between two entirely different visions of America. President Obama and I are simply the standard bearers of opposing, and may I add, irreconcilable visions of what America is and should be. The Republican Party and I represent American values as they have been understood since the founding of our country. The Democratic Party and President Obama represent different values. This does not make any Democrat, let alone President Obama, less American or less patriotic than anyone of us here. But millions of Americans...

    Ann Romney may not make prime time during next week's Republican National Convention. The three major television networks — NBC, ABC and CBS — are not airing prime-time coverage of the RNC on Monday, the opening night of the convention and the night that Ann Romney has been scheduled to deliver the keynote address. So in order to get Mitt's wife onto television, the campaign may have to scramble and reschedule her speech. CNN, which will cover the speech, first reported earlier this week that Ann Romney is expected to headline the kickoff. The three networks all confirmed to POLITICO...

    PRAGUE, Okla.– There’s a bit of diploma drama going on between a local high school and that school’s valedictorian. David Nootbaar is furious his daughter’s school is keeping her diploma. He said, “She has worked so hard to stay at the top of her class and this is not right.” Kaitlin Nootbaar graduated from Prague High School, the Red Devils, in May and was named valedictorian. When tasked with writing the graduation speech, her dad said she got her inspiration from the movie “Eclipse: The Twilight Saga.” Nootbaar said, “Her quote was, ‘When she first started school she wanted to...

    One month to the day after his infamous ‘you didn’t build that’ speech, President Obama’s description of wealthy people did not include “smart” or “hardworking,” as he instead ascribed their success to good luck. “If you’re lucky enough, and fortunate enough, and been blessed enough to be in the other two percent, the top two percent, you still get a tax cut for your first $250,000 of income,” Obama said during a campaign stop in Council Bluffs, Iowa. “All we’re saying is after that, maybe you can do a little bit more to help pay down this deficit and invest...

    I have to admit, the Huntsman candidacy for President never made much sense to me. When it began I thought: wait, this guy served in the Obama Administration and now wants to run against him? And I didn't really get any further than that. Maybe, though, it was simply Himalayan-sized political ambition. According to very credible sources, Huntsman has accepted a speaking slot at the Democrat convention in Charlotte next month. So, first the guy stabs the GOP in the back to work for Obama. Then, he stabs Obama in the back to run against him. And now Huntsman's political...

How many times have you said that over this past year? Was it a news story that made you mad? Did someone in your life make you mad? How about politics? That one always seems to set folks off. So… did you do anything about it? Did you call your favorite government official to voice your concern? Did you attend a rally to support the opposing cause? Or did you sit...

    Well, according to the Boston Globe, that's the latest rumor. The crowds at political conventions feast on partisan red meat, and they could end up with a bellyful when the Republicans and Democrats meet back to back beginning late next month. An Obama campaign official confirmed to the Globe Wednesday that US Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is ­being considered as a possible keynote speaker for the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. It would give the Massachusetts Democrat a national platform for her high-profile race against Senator Scott Brown, the same launch pad that ­Barack Obama used to vault ­into...

    Mitt Romney is delivering a strong speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars right now in Nevada. He was tough on the Obama administration, most emphatically on national-security leaks (a “crisis” — emphasizing it “isn’t a partisan issue”) and Israel (“The people of Israel deserve better than what they have received from the leader of the free world. And the chorus of accusations, threats, and insults at the United Nations should never again include the voice of the President of the United States”), and Iran. And the Poles George Weigel has been talking to would be happy to hear what...
