Republican National Convention
During his speech, the 82-year-old Oscar-winning director conducted a mock interview with an imaginary President Barack Obama, represented by an empty chair.
The speech marked his big opportunity to reintroduce himself to the American people, counteract the negative ads that have filled the air waves and convince people he can fix what ails this country.
“I’m just thanking him for the gift of freedom and democracy and the very process that has allowed us to exist as a democracy and a republic, to come together in freedom and civility to choose our leaders,” Timothy Cardinal Dolan told WCBS 880′s Rich Lamb.
While Paul Ryan is entitled to his own opinions, he is not entitled to his own facts. He lied to America about Medicare. He lied to America about the debt commission. He really lied to America about the stimulus and America’s debt rating.
The gloves came off at the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night. Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan stepped into the spotlight and focused his frustration on President Barack Obama.
It took New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie 16 minutes to mention presidential candidate Mitt Romney during his keynote speech. But that hasn’t stopped his rock star-like ascension in the party.
Appearing on “CBS This Morning,” New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s keynote speech showed that “President Obama is not a courageous leader.”
The speech gave much of what Ann and Mitt Romney have been trying to reveal about themselves throughout the misleading negative campaigning of 2012 which has put them on some imaginary pedestal due to Mitt Romney’s business success and extreme wealth. They, too, like most American families, have obviously experienced life’s uncertain challenges intertwined with their successes.
With Isaac moving away from Tampa, the Republican National Convention is finally in full swing. Taking center stage on Tuesday night will be New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
As Hurricane Isaac threatens the Gulf again, we will see if Katrina and Isaac serve as bookends of GOP hostility to federal disaster relief. An odd stance for a party that claims to “choose life” while watching people die in natural disasters rather than provide an adequate response.
Ron Paul’s impact on the future of America and how the nation remembers his involvement with the GOP presidential campaign process of 2012 is his and his alone. By saying that he cannot fully support the Republican Party’s choice and raising the discontentment of his supporters, he is on the verge of being best remembered as the presidential election spoiler – or attempted spoiler – of 2012.
As of 5 p.m. on Monday, presumptive Republican candidate Mitt Romney still had not arrived in Tampa so the biggest GOP star in attendance at the time seemed to be N.J. Gov. Chris Christie.
Gov. Christie has launched Twitter and Tumblr accounts to provide information on his keynote address and his travels surrounding the convention in Tampa.
It isn’t just Republican Members of Congress that have junk theories they attach to pseudo-science. Kevin D. Williamson, a conservative writer for the National Review, thinks based on their offspring, genetics and “evolutionary biology” Barack Obama should have ovaries and that Mitt Romney should owns him in this election, “Like a Boss”.
The four-day GOP convention begins Monday in Tampa, Fla.
