"The convention's opening speaker was Gov. Bob McDonnell, who reiterated his support for Mitt Romney.

"When he was governor of Massachusetts he cut taxes 19 times, got rid of a $3 billion deficit and created a balanced budget on time," said McDonnell. "

Typical Republican distortion (let's be honest, lies).

Since the tax cuts were relatively small, the revenue taxpayers saved was "vastly less" than the roughly $700 million in additional annual revenue raised because of other measures Romney signed.

He certainly didn't tackle the deficit by lowering tax revenue.

Leave it to a bunch of liberal college students to mock the republican convention! This is just another example of how these idiot so called teachers are warping the minds of our kids, turning them into socialists instead of actually teaching them. Why are we wasting our tax money on liberal so called teachers that cannot actually teach? Virginia should cut of all funding to this liberal college for mocking the republicans, and expell every last one of the little liberal snots that participated in this insult! Why wait until Newt unseats the Kenyan in Chief? Boot their sorry butts now!

Mock has several definitions. When used as an adjective, it can mean imitate, which is what they are doing here. Being in Virginia, I'll bet most students there lean Republican. This 'mock up' was not meant to deride the party (no matter how much they deserve it).

We can all see where a government run by the right wing has got us. The faster we can breed and train college kids to follow European socialist values the better off this country will be. Capitalism has run its course in this country and the faster it disappears the better off we'll be.

It appears you are opposed to education, I guess the Klan uniform your parents sent you to school in prevented you from seeing much of the chalkboard. Those pesky hoods have been keeping closed minds like yours in the dark for generations. Now close your mouth, you are drawing flies with all the manure you are belching. If you had not dropped out of school you would have learned that Republican is a proper noun and should be capitalized.

Every time I try to convince myself that Fox News and Conservative talk radio are not just stoking the fires of hatred and ignorance, and may actually be helping to educate people about the issues of the day, even if it is in a biased forum, I read a post like this. We have had hate based media throughout our history, but never as constant, immediate, and pervasive as today. I grow more and more frightened at the number of people that actually have been convinced that government, education, and infrastructure are their enemy, and that only tax cuts that disproportionately favor the wealthy can save working America. This post is a wonderful example of corporate funded ignorance at it's finest.

Don't give this guy that much credit, he was born that way and you can't fix stupid.
