Just heard and saw the speech. It's way worse than I thought. the only mention of the environment told me that Romney could care less about the planet. it was all about money. Well money won't do us any good if we're all dead. I previously thought it might not be so bad if Romney got elected, but now I think it would be a huge disaster. He has no clue about how all things are connected. F___ that guy. He is the enemy now. Money, money, money is all he cares about. I am so pissed off now.

The Clint Eastwood who appeared at the Republican convention was even more bizarre than you.

Actually, republicans don't own anybody. If you recall from your high school history class, democrats were the party of slavery.

Having said that, you have Bubbles Biden. If that man had half a mind, he'd have twice as much as he does at present.

Let the debates begin and pass the popcorn, please.

The speaker before Romney was Marco Rubio, he is the one that "rolled out" Romney. And he was brilliant, probably the best speaker of all that I saw.
As bad as that, eh?

Yes, it was "well, do ya punk" but close enough. Clint was a nice touch. Democrats will probably have Gaga what's her name.

I have the impression Romney was never your "friend". I doubt he counted on your vote. Too bad the subtly of his message was lost on you. It's hell when Obama's own promises come back to haunt, ain't it.

BTW, for folks who've been out of work, have degrees that are useless in the job market, aren't living in their childhood bedroom, and don't believe in the public dole, that crass money/job talk is more important to their future then the cyclical climate changes.

More desperation. I don't blame them. Their Convention will be so boring, so whinny, so negative. They hate America, and it shows. More promises that they will gladly do in their second term what they promised, but couldn't deliver in their first term. They really think we are that dumb, to vote for 4 more years of the same? No, no way.

You idiot! Over time at least as far as slavery goes the political parties have switched roles. You're a bonehead living in the past when it suits you.

Cyclical it is, but at the rate things are changing.. Well, it's never ever hapenned before. Your head's in a hole in the ground if you don't know that.
We're slowing killing ourselves man. Quit throwing your trash on my road. You're clueless and apathetic. Read a little bit will ya.
