Wow, the first night of the republican convention was very pathetic… WOW!
Ann Romney didn’t connect in any part of her blabbering. She seemed tipsy as she blurted out a few times as if she was with a group of her friends on ‘girls night out’. And then Mitt Romney walks out like a Martian robot, LOL. Later, as Ann Romney sat in the audience, they even caught her at one point on camera looking disinterested as if she would rather be in her mansion sipping an expensive wine. Chris Christie was disastrous; he was grim and angry and he only mentioned Romney once, and it was 1800 words in, and never again, WOW, LOL.
Can’t wait until Romney speech Thursday night.
THE MARINE IMPOSTER shoots of his mouth again!thats the only thing he ever shot?he damn sure never was in the corp!!!!

<quoted text>Whats so wrong Nugget? You must be an Illegal cause you think they should be over here, even though the rest of us are broke because of them. You are anti-American and think like Obama. Destroy America at any and every cost.
First of all, my family tree splits two ways. One was on the mayflower, the other side was there to greet it when it landed. I'm more American than you can ever dream of being.

Second, the one here who is anti-American is the one who wants to grant armed thugs the right to shoot anyone (citizen or not) on suspicion of a crime.

Third, if you are broke, it's because you are lazy and uneducated. There are plenty of illegal workers in Los Angeles, and none of them are coming for my job.

Unemployment is high, yet the illegals are still finding work out in the fields and doing construction, etc. You know why? Because people like you refuse to do it.

You want to get rid of illegals, you don't have to shoot anyone. Go out and start picking crops for $3/hr. The illegals will go home

<quoted text>What have we gotten our way on? We didn't want that stimulas that never worked
Do you mean TARP which Bush pushed through? Or do you mean the bail out of the auto industry that saved thousands of jobs and some of America's best companies?
did not want that fiasco of a healthcare bill
You mean Romney-care? What is your specific objection to it?
did not want high gas prices
High gas prices are the result of China's gearing up. They were high under Bush. They are high under Obama. They will be high under whoever we put in office in 2016.

There is only so much oil out there and China is buying more of it than they did before. Supply and demand.

If you really want to lower gas prices in the US, you need to get more efficient cars and more alternative sources of energy to lower demand because you simply aren't going to beat it on the supply side of the equation.
do not want Illegal Aliens taking over
Taking over what exactly?

By the way, Obama exported more illegals in 3 years than Bush did in 8.
we don't want that Commie in the WH,
LOL. You don't even know what a Communist is. Obama is the furthest thing from a Communist. You can't complain that he's a commie and that he's in the pocket of Wall St.
we don't want the DOJ sueing the states because they try to protect the citizens
Protect the citizens from what?
and we want 23 million jobs Obammy lost.
Well, then you shouldn't have allowed the economic bubble to grow under Bush. It caused a WORLDWIDE economic downturn.

Then, just as we started to recover, the Tea Party ruined America's credit rating costing us TRILLIONS of dollars.

Seriously, the big problem with you guys is you have NO IDEA what you are complaining about.

You hate healthcare - WHY exactly? You don't know.
You hate raising taxes on the top 1% back to the level they were under Reagan because -- you think Reagan was a communist?

Seriously. Get a grip.

I loved it when the moderator at the dem convention got the vote on whether God and Jews are hated, and not to be mentioned during the democrat convention. The people by a huge margin wanted to keep god and the word Jerusalem out of the convention words. Democrats are god hating, jew hating, lying bastards. The moderator of the vote, after 3 tries, finally lied and gave it to the Yays, to change the words to be OK to use. Democrats are filth and should be disbanded. They are ALL filth. All the men and all the women. Every Last One. Filth. Garbage. Pestilence. Vile excrement. FILTH!!!

You do realize that it's the Conservative Christians who are aiming for the destruction of all the Jews, right? That's part of their actual agenda.

Their support of Israel is strictly on a "End of Days" platform, and guess who doesn't fare so well when Jesus comes back.

So, spare me the whole "Dems hate Jews" and while your at it, why don't you explain how "Hollyweird" is in the bag for the Dems if Hollyweird is "run by the Jews".

Meanwhile, let's talk about the Republican party, shall we.

- You have no central ideology other than "win at all costs". Your stated positions on big issues are the opposite of your policy positions. You "hate" big government except when it comes to dictating relationships, health care, state's rights, imminent domain and stripping workers of their benefits.

- Your electoral game book is "Strip US citizens of their right to vote"

- You oppose every single amendment in the Bill of Rights except for the 2nd, because for some reason you think that if everyone had a gun, no one would ever use one.

- You hate the troops, you hate cops, you hate firefighters, you hate teachers.

Is there anyone you don't hate? Oh right, you love the KKK. And that's about it.

More then anything that correction to their platform today against the wishes of the delegates proved how Godless Democrats are, and how much they hate the Jews. The sad part is the Jewish Americans will vote Democrat no matter what.
