Clearly Ryan is the most notable tonight since this will be his first big introduction to the national stage aside from his initial announcement.


  1. Considering that this will be the convention that will be remembered for penalizing some states,
    disqualifying others, totally wiping out some convention results, juggling numbers, and finally,
    dictating exactly what may or may not be said, wouldn’t it be wonderful if when Rand speaks, he
    were to threw away his text and read the speech his dad WOULD have given, if he had not been muzzled?

    Of course, he won’t, because the boy has a serious case of Stockholm Syndrome. . . .

    But wouldn’t it be amazing?
    The cameras would be on.
    What could the cabal do,
    turn out the lights??

      • Billy:

        More likely that a “terrorist” would pick him off with a rifle,
        Willard would then jump to the podium “bravely” calling for calm,
        “valiantly” risking another attack from his own “terrorist,”
        and then use it as an example of why we need to curtail more rights
        . . .and probably flipping back to his gun-control roots.

      • “Dead to me now”?

        Rand is no more than just another ambitious politician–an opportunist–pretender to the throne.

        Charlatan? What we used to all a “rascal.” He’ll say what he needs to say to get what he wants.

        And so, I suspect when he speaks tonight, it will be, “Willard, you’re just like ME!!”

        I still think we need to demand a paternity test.

          • Nah. There have been a lot of straight-talking politicians who have been re-elected repeatedly. Ron Paul was elected 12 times, and he was NOT ambitious. Yes, he ran for president three times, but for him, it was about issues, not prestige.

            Politicians underestimate the people when they think they have to play the establishment game. And if they play the game, what’s the difference between them and any other “politician”?

      • Nate —

        RAND Paul is playing the percentages (as all professional politicians do).

        His gamble is that the utter despise most people have for the BO will catapult plastic Rmoney to a win (and since the Mitt lacks character, he’ll be easily defeated in 2016…by Rand Paul)!

        This is a sound gamble! Based on the observation that the BO would be trailing many, many points behind if a charismatic Republican opposed him (and for plastic, no charisma Mitt to be nearly tied — only shows how weak the BO is)!

        However, should the BO win (most likely) — RAND Paul will propably end up in a FEMA Camp (once the BO is done destroying our Nation during the next 4 years of its dictatorship)!

        After all,

        • I sure didn’t hear Rand embrace much of the party platform. I did hear the word change but nothing on NDAA, Patriot Act, TARP, or the TSA. So what’s the big difference between the two parties? Oh yeah, the GOP is going to eliminate abortions via abstinence and Paul Ryan is going to head up the program. Guess that’s the big difference. Obama on the other hand says, if it feels good, do it. Tough choice for the voters.

  2. Ron Paul — Run as an Independent!

    Sign petition below:

    A REAL Human Being (Ron Paul) needs to be present at the “Debates” — we just can’t allow a Punch-and-Judy Show (the Rmoney puppet parleying with the BO puppet) — someone with REAL SUBSTANCE needs to expose these two clowns!

    Ron Paul is the only one capable of this!

        • I was listening to an interview today.

          Can’t remember who was speaking. Maybe Haley Barbour.

          Anyway, the host asked him about the fact that there seems to be a lack of enthusiasm about Willard. So the guest tried to put a good face on it, saying that it won’t be easy, but the party will come together.

          But I thought it was particularly telling that he used the expression of BEING GIVEN A LEMON and now having to make LEMONADE. This was one of Willard’s supporters!

  3. *History Will Remember 2012 Forever*
    (as the year the Republican Party lost their integrity and caused the downfall of America)!

    For many decades the Democratic Party was held in contempt — as the one that utilizes Lies, Fraud and CHEATING to reach their goals.

    In 2012, the Republican Party — in one swoop — showed to be no different, perhaps, even more blatantly corrupt!

    The RNC surpassed in the shortest time all the perfidy the DNC had done over decades (the list of the GOP infamy is long, here are just some examples):

    Negating duly elected delegates, BARRING them from participation, Ignoring GOP’s own Rules… changing rules After the Fact, plus many more worse offenses (including breaking bones in Louisiana to prevent the duly elected delegates from this State’s slate, turning off the AC at Arizona’s Convention (trying to get rid of Ron Paul supporters by DEHYDRATION, while stuffing unchecked ballots at the same time…), declaring suspect ‘Aye’ votes when the ‘Nay’ were just as loud (if not even louder) as the Aye’s “have it”…instead of following the Rules and getting a REAL Head Count)!

    What will the backlash of such despicable actions be?

    IT WILL BE DEVASTATING to our Nation:

    1) No Real American would trust the Republican Establishment! (The American People — that never trusted the Democrats, now cannot trust the Republicans, either)!

    2) Since, no Real American will vote for the RNC’s (CCCP) chosen — the Mitt — expect a low republican vote.

    3) Since, no Real American will vote for the Obaminator — expect the Human Trash that pollutes our Nation to reelect this usurper for another 4 years.

    Great job RNC — assuring a BO victory that will end US!

    • Yeah but are they a match for the corruption in Illinois. In Illinois politicians serving time is considered par for the course. A lot more get away than get caught. These guys can all swim with the barracuda.

    • You seem to be filled with quite a bit of unfounded hate. If the Republicans lose this election they will have done it to themselves. The republican bse is not voting to elect Romney, they are voting to get rid of Obama. They hand over an economy in free fall and then blame the man for not cleaning up their mess fast enough. And then call for him to be fired and that control be given back to them so that they can screw it up some more. Now that is a great case to make and plays well with the ignorance and rampant hatred that now consumes the right.

      • I don’t think either side intends to screw anything up it’s just a bi product of what they intend to accomplish. The voters are seldom given any consideration once the plan is put into motion except how to make the pay for it and hopefully get a standing “O” for duping them from the victims (aka taxpayers) themselves. The art of a con.

        • Billy:

          I dunno. Ever see the movie, THE PRODUCERS? They realize they can make more money by insuring a show and then having it fail.

          That’s Bain-conomics. They went into some deals realizing they would make more money to borrow 95% from the bank, extract their 5% in fees, then every additional fee is profit. Even charge a fee to liquidate the sad remains of the company.

          If he somehow wins, I’d expect Willard to sell off the gold in Ft. Knox early on. Then, after the massive sale causes the price to drop, his buddies could load up. Then, crying about the “gold standard,” Willard will have us buy the same gold BACK from his buddies.

          • Been going on since time began. Remember the S&L scandal. Building homes that they knew could never be sold. Hey why not. Like Ross Perot said you don’t get a job to support you and your family. It’s just for a grub stake so you can go into business for yourself. If you fail you go back to a job and try over. Now if you want to put your future into someone else’s hands keep an eye on the loading dock to make sure they are doing okay. But then Romney found away even around that. The pie is only so big, for him to eat, you gotta starve. That’s the Romney way.

            • Billy:

              He’ll even take the pie plate, cuz it’s aluminum.

              Maybe you can keep the box. But you’ll have to share it.

            • Yeah, I don’t think he leaves much behind. One thing a leech hates is another leech. Again he is very successful at what he does and it’s againd the law now to use the tar and feathers on the guy.

            • Yeah, but it would be like locking up a street drug dealer. Got a whole line of them waiting to take his place.

            • Well after the Drew Peterson case all we have to do is say that the net gang member who gets killed tonight in Chicago told me, it was Romney. Even an alibi from his wife won’t do him any good as all we need is another person to say she told that person he made my lie.

  4. Ron Paul to WIN as Independent!

    Ron Paul appeals to all True Americans — the only candidate that bridges the gaps — Liberals, Libertarians, Conservatives, Democrats, Republicans and INDEPENDENTS!

    Here is the Math:

    1) Pulls (even with rigged GOP voting machines) 12%+ Republicans
    2) Will garner 10%+ of the Dems vote (the true liberals and the undecided)
    3) 3%+ of the Libertarian Vote
    4) 15%+ of the Independent Vote

    (these are conservative figures)

    The total is — 40% or more for Ron Paul! (Bye, bye Mitt and BO)!

    In a three-way-race — all Ron Paul needs to become the Next President of the USA is 35% (since the BO and the Mitt will be virtually tied (the BO at 33% and the Mitt at 32%)!

    Done deal — now make sure you sign the below petition so Ron Paul RUNS as Independent for the Presidency — or lose our Nation in 2012!

    • You are not far off there at all Surfisher: Jessie Ventura pulled that same thing off and was up against a popular politician, Hubert Humphrey’s grand kid I think. But like you he did the math and won.

  5. I wonder if George Bush (Dubya) will ever be recognized as a Republican again.

    He was president for eight years, but the only president the GOP wants to brag ab out this year is Bill Clinton. . . .

    • What about Reagan ? ? Too far Back. They do mention him but Bush is like a third rail.

      I’m sure Obama will make up for it though.

      • Billy:

        Yeah. What they were trying to do is court the Blue Dog Dems who supported Clinton, I guess. In the way that Reagan tried to blur the line.

        Republican Conventions have tried to claim JFK and even Harry Truman.

        But it’s safe to claim a dead president. Bubba will be speaking at the Dem Convention, and say what you will about him, he knows how to make a fool of you when you do something foolish, and this was foolish.

        I can hear it now, “I appreciate the praise from the GOP (laughter). Of course, I wish it had come a few years earlier (applause). But seriously, they have to claim me because the Republicans have no one to be proud of. And while I appreciate having the stage, President Obama doesn’t need any help. I tried to pass health-care reform, but he accomplished it. Two presidents tried to get bin Laden, but he did it. The economy was in total free-fall, and he kept it from becoming a world-wide, 12-year Depression. And speaking of the economy, the stock market is back to near all-time highs, and a lot of corporations are reporting all-time record profits. And they’re still belly-aching. Anyway, thanks again to the GOP. It gives me more credibility when I tell America to re-elect Barack Obama.”

        That’s the kind of thing Clinton will say, and the GOP deserves it, by making him their main presidential hero.

        • And he might add that when the prez said “you didn’t build that” he was referring to Bain Capital. They made big money by taking away what other people built and putting the people who built it on welfare.

          And the GOP really thinks it has a chance? Hey Willard got to be the GOP poster boy but now he’s up against a black politician from Chicago.

  6. RNC Day Four:


    Romney’s speech.

    Well, he begins by saying that he accepts with humility. [Put on your waders, boys, this is gonna be a deep one!] Lie number one.

    “Americans always come together after elections.” Lie number yep. That’s simply not true. There hasn’t been a presidential “honeymoon” since Reagan. Nobody since has gone a day without some kind of cut-throat attack.

    “For the first time, the majority of Americans now doubt that our children will have a better future.” Lie number three. That sense has not just appeared. Statistics show that average working people have been worse off since the late 1970s. And the 1% have been better and better off.

    “Paying down the national debt and rolling back those massive deficits. This was the hope and change America voted for.” Lie number four. That is NOT at ALL what 2008 was all about. The hope was that we wouldn’t fall into a total worldwide Depression. The change was that we’d get out of the paranoia/xenophobia and wars.

    “His promises gave way to disappointment and division.” Lie number five. There has been disappointment, but division has NOT abated since the attacks on GHW Bush in 1990.

    “When President Kennedy challenged Americans.” There you go—claiming JFK.

    “ I grew up with stories of his family being fed by the US Government” Omigod! On the dole???

    “The centerpiece of the Presidentis entire re-election campaign is attacking success.” Lie number six. Those who attack Romney are not attacking “success.” They’re attacking method.

    ”Creating tomorrow’s prosperity rather than trying to redistribute today’s.” Lie number seven. The 99% movement is NOT about “taking” the wealth of the few. It’s about opening opportunity to more people. If you look at the charts, a SYSTEM has come about to “redistribute” wealth to the few. I have the charts to show it.

    ”Every president since the Great Depression [asked if] you are better off today than you were four years ago.” Lie number eight. To my knowledge, and I’ve seen most of the campaigns since the end of the Great Depression, only ONE presidential candidate asked that question, and that’s Richard Nixon. He lost because you do NOT ask that question. No matter HOW well we are doing, Americans are NOT satisfied, and THAT is what makes us great.

    “Now is the time to restore the Promise of America.” Lie number nine. The stock market is at near all-time highs. Many corporate profits are at all-time highs. The promise of America is simply being hoarded.

    “His trillion dollar cuts to our military” Biggest lie of all. Should be worth two—lie number ten AND eleven. Obama has failed by NOT stopping wars, and by pumping more and more money into the military-industrial complex, not stopping wasteful weapons the military doesn’t even want. We are squandering more that the next TWENTY FIVE countries COMINED. Look at the spending chart, and military spending THROUGH 2014 is a straight line upward.

    ”His $716 billion cut to Medicare” Lie number twelve. This is the exact SAME amount cut in the Ryan budget. Oh, wait, I forgot, Willard says he will eventually come up with his own plan, right?

    ”I have a plan to create 12 million new jobs” Lie number thirteen. What he offers is vague generalities in PLACE of a plan. Where did I hear that before, “I have a plan.” Oh, yes, Richard Nixon—his “secret plan” to end the war in Vietnam, which included expanding it to nearly every country in the area, and dramatically increasing American deaths.

    “America has freed other nations from dictators.” Don’t shy away from promising unending war, Willard baby, wade right in there!

    “President Obama has thrown allies like Israel under the bus” Lie number fourteen and fifteen. First, Israel is not an “ally,” they’re a dependent, and in international affairs, WE are their “client state,” following their orders. Obama has failed because we are giving Israel A THIRD OF A TRILLION DOLLARS EVERY YEAR. Obama increased the aid to Israel from $2.46 billion in 2007 to $3.33 billion in 2009 and down only slightly to $3.175 billion in 2010.

    “This is the bipartisan foreign policy legacy of Truman and Reagan.” Oh, yeah, as long as “foreign policy” means war. Oh, and praise another Democrat. All God’s Chillen love wars, and we’ve had an unending string of them. Has anyone considered an alternative?

    “Care for the poor and the sick, will honor and respect the elderly, and will give a helping hand to those in need.” Oh, yeah, Slick Willard, let’s promise it all. Did he lift this from an LBJ speech? Is there a penalty for plagiarism in this instance??

    • I saw the same thing with lyin’ Ryan. Again people hearing without listening. You can be sure the democrats listened to every lie that was told in the speeches.

      • RNC=DNC=CCCP

        “The GOP is smarter than we”!

        While, We The People, have hopes of saving our Nation — THEY, the GOP Elite, has none.

        We are idealistic — believers that Truth, Liberty and Justice will eventually prevail, thus saving US from imminent economic collapse and the loss of all freedoms!

        The GOP Establishment has no such illusions — THEY want to assure that ONLY THEY and THEIR OWN have first dibs on the choices pieces of meat, when the carving of the American People starts. THEY do not want rejuvenation of the Republican Party, nor is stagnation enough — PURGING is needed, so THEY are first in line to pick our bones clean when the economic collapse starts. (Same goes for the Dems in power).

        We, the Real American People (the producers), are the HOST — and THEY, the Non-Producers, are the Parasites!

        While the Host was strong and healthy in the past — the parasites fed well with little notice on OUR loss.

        But, NOW the Parasites have become GREATER than the HOST — meaning in order to survive, THEY have to suck MORE blood out of US than we can produce for ourselves, let alone THEM.

        Realizing this, THEY are preparing the road ONLY for THEMSELVES and THEIR OWN to strip our carcass clean (after they’ve sucked US dry).

        Now, back to working two jobs Real Americans, so you can produce some more to feed THEM longer…until THEY are finally ready to send you to the glue factory… (“Animal Farm” by George Orwell).
