    I want to say something nice about all those delegates and alternates who sit for hours listening to speeches. Salute! I can’t do it – even when I agree with the speakers! I have to get up and walk around or get a bite or coffee or go hit a few balls. But, sitting on my rear for hours is torture. I am very pleased with Ryan in every way. He did serve up some good red meat and we do like that. I expect a remarkable speech tonight by Romney. But, I am not sure what he or anyone could say or if there are even words to try to say something that would impact that 46 or 47% who still support Obomb. How bad will it have to get to make them doubt? Just amazing!

    Final point: I am so bored with Ron Paul and the Paul-bots. At some point, may I point out, you’ve made your point and after that, what’s the point?

      Whodat – what will you wear on Thursday night so we can pick you out of the crowd? A 50 gallon hat? A giant Texas is #1 foam finger? Let me know so I can look for you during the brief 1 hour slot we poor slobs all get from liberal media TV.

    Very proud of my fellow Alabamians who spoke at the convention!
    Artur Davis, who had the good sense to abandon the Democrat party, and Condaleeza Rice, who gave an amazing speech.

    Ryan’s speech is a tale of stage confidence. Started weakly and got better by the minute.

      I agree. Once he shook the butterflies it was a game on all out assault on this failed administration presented with a charm and honesty that the Dems will have an impossible time attempting to demonize.

      I thought i was a perfect Southern style speech. Saying all kinds of nasty, but true, things about Obama but taking the sting out of it with a “Bless his heart!” It’s sad that Ryan isn’t the nominee for President, he really should have thrown his hat in the ring. I would bet everything I have that he would have won. Instead, I have to wait until 2020.

      You’re right. Nervous to begin, but around the 5 minute mark, it kicked into gear and went into overdrive. Drove the place bonkers. Thought it was a grand slam by the time he was done.

    Fantastic speech tonight by Condi. Who saw it?

      Then Susana Martinez tried to one up her. It’s a lot for Paul Ryan to compete with.

    Regarding Rand Pauls speech:

    I think he continues the tradition Chris Cristie started yesterday, which is called: Don’t forget me, when the 2016-race comes to sight. Both speeched had the line “I want to be the next candidate” written all over it.

    Till the end I didn’t really understand, what Pauls answer to the line torn out of context “You didn’t build it” is. The line was meant as “You did it on your own, be proud of it, but you had some assistence and some conditions that helped you”. What exactly is Pauls point against that.

    Any speecher who refers to Ronald Reagan has to be called out, I think. Reagan would be far to moderate to be a Republican of these days. Didn’t i read, that even Jeb Bush said something like Reagan wouldn’t find a place in nowadays Republicans.

    Paul at the end of his speech just said “Thank you”. Is that legal? I always tought there has to be a law to refer to god, using the phrase “God bless you and the United States of America”.

    Finally, cudos to your daughter, Scott. Just tell me, if she needs some assistence and fresh views, she would not get at home.

    • gururussell

      I’m sure that Obama is thankful for your assistance in rephrasing his speech.
      But, you know what….”He didn’t say that…somebody else (you) said that.”
      If you even remotely feel that Ronald Reagan would be a Democrat today (or far too moderate to be a Republican), you lose any and all credibility to discuss American politics.
      And, yes, I include Jeb Bush in that rebuke.

        Gary, I actually took the time to read this article. So, what does it
        say? It basically quotes Norquist and takes his view. And what does
        Norquist have to say? He says that Reagans rising of taxes were
        something very very different. So it turns out that not all tax-hikes
        are the same. Which in turn makes the Norquist-pledge, that he forced
        about every Republican to sign rather worthless, doesn’t it? Because, if
        in principle it might be legitimate to rise taxes under circumstances,
        as it was with Reagans repeated tax hikes, nobody needs a paper to
        forbid it, right? Plus, nobody would rise taxes just for fun.

        Gary, I don’t state, Reagan would be a Democrat in these days. But he,
        who was considered to be a hardliner, a guy too conservative for the
        mainstream, would not be accepted by nowadays Republicans – as wouldn’t
        Bush I, Barry Goldwater or Romney’s father, people to be considered just
        nomal or even very conservatives in their times. I believe,
        strategically you are on a very wrong track.

        • gururussell

          I readily agree with your addition of Bush 1 and Romney’s father – no argument there!
          .
          And if you are talking about the Barry Goldwater at the twilight of his life, I would agree with that, also.
          .
          But I could give you a hundred examples of Reagan and 1960’s Goldwater quotes and actions that would show that you are extremely wrong about them being “far too moderate to be a Republican these days”.
          .
          Even though that is a popular talking point amongst the libs these days, saying it doesn’t make it so.

    My daughter has to bring and discuss a news article to her social studies class a couple of times per week. Today she chose one on Mia Love’s speech at the convention last night. That makes for one proud papa.
