The malfunction and eventual failure of the Ronald Reagan holographic generator isn't mentioned anywhere.

I think declaring war on every other country on earth was somewhat noteworthy.

So that Paul Ryan guy still can't get a suit that fits?

Nominating Gordon Gekko for President didn't make the list?

What's with that? Ron Paul has better fitting suits, and he's shrinking.

The speakers weren't exactly doing much to help the situation.

I live in Tampa, and if you discount things that people have no control over (Isaac) the convention went off without a hitch. All of the Fail happened inside the St. Pete Times Forum and on the stage.

Did Zombie Reagan catch on fire? That. Would. Be. HILARIOUS.

One assumes the list starts and ends with "They nominated Mitt Romney".
 
2012-08-31 09:48:07 AM
The vaunted vice presidential nominee? His speech took a pounding from fact-checkers, potentially knocking the Romney campaign off kilter just as it enters the home stretch.

No, that has been the entire campaign. This is them on message.

the emergence of Ann Romney as a beloved national figure

FTFA: As Obama's auto czar Steve Rattner noted, Ryan's insistence that Obama should have saved the individual assembly line also ran directly counter to his frequent refrain that the government shouldn't be in the business of "picking winners and losers."

Silly czar; Republicans only mean that when someone else is being picked as the "winner".

Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question:

It is impossible to create a comprehensive list because the set of items is way too large.

Eastwood's speech was like that scene in Empire Strikes Back where Luke fought Vader on Dagobah. It was pointless, slowed everything down and made no sense.

All anyone is going to remember about this convention is a ver old Clint Eastwood arguing with an empty chair.  It may be all we remember about Obama's re-election in a few years.

That's what I was wondering. Please, think of the strippers!

Maybe Romney should debate with a chair. That's a debate he could win.
 
2012-08-31 10:06:51 AM

the Staples guy had help from Romney. I thought you guys built stuff on your own.
Rubio thanked a teacher. Again, I thought you guys don't need any help to build businesses.

they focus on small business because big business is not for us. And if we think about big business they might have to bring jobs back to our country and pay a living wage and that is bad for the CEOs.

Clint talked to an empty chair. And yep...the middle of NYC is the only place you could move it to in the whole country. And closing it tomorrow would be be political suicide. I like you old man, but sit down in the chair and think for a minute.

Romney said unconditional love...unless you're gay or maybe don't want a pregnancy to ruin your life. Or not a Christian.

America deserves things? Sounds like socialism and entitlements.

A shiatload of generic platitudes. there was not one idea or suggestion of how he will do anything. devoid of anything resembling content. Just is all Obama's fault.

This would be my RNC sign:

I heard the Reagan hologram achieved sentience and wouldn't endorse Romney.
 
2012-08-31 10:09:09 AM
oh, and they love the idea of people having to work 2 to 3 jobs just to make it.

yeah, awesome.

Nah. The chair has a consistent stance. Also, more personality.

Actually, based on Eastwood's speech, I'm really contemplating changing my vote to Chair. CHAIR IN 2012!

Chair won't let America down.

Can't wait till the Democratic Convention when the Dems get up and crow about their achievements over the past 4 years. I mean it is a no brainer. Best President ever. Just look at how awesome the economy is. And there is virtually no more turmoil in the world. Yep, what a GREAT job this President has done. He deserves another 4 years. Heck, he deserves another 40 years! He's done an AMAZING job!

Dream on.

Obama is going to tear the Republicans to shreds. Including Bush, who gave him the mess he inherited, the obstructionist Republicans in the House and Senate, and Romney and Ryan, just based on the policies they've stated that they support.

UberDave: Maybe Romney should debate with a chair. That's a debate he could win.


Romney: "Obama-chair raised taxes on people to pay for Obamacare. He called it a fine but SCOTUS ruled it was a tax. The individual mandate is a tax."

Obama-Chair: ...

Romney: "Sure Romneycare also had an individual mandate "tax" but that is at the State level which is completely different. Sure I endorsed it as a Federal solution as well but that is before I knew it would conflict with me opposing Obamacare".

Obama-Chair: ...

Romeny: "Why so smug chair? You think I'm making this up. I'll be you $10,000 and a can of furniture wax that I never specifically said that I was sorta proud that Obamacare was modeled after what we did."

Obama-Chair: ...

Romney: "At least people know where I was born. Lemon.Wet.Good. I like firing people."

Or I guess the US could turn control of the executive branch to the party that, you know, caused it all to begin with.

/And no, I'm not letting Clinton off the hook for not vetoing Gramm-Leach-Bliley either

Love it! You simply can not defend the President's record so your argument is SHUT UP! Love it.

Run on BLAME BUSH AND SHUT UP! What a great platform.
