    I’ve heard 2 intros for the team so far…hoping they’re not involved in a Spinal Tap-like journey through tunnels to get to the stage. Wup…there they are. Whew! Go Team.

  • CitizenEgg

    LOL! Who was that guy who jumped up when Mitt introduced Ryan?

    • Sober_Thinking

      Ryan’s brother? 😉

  • CitizenEgg

    Cue the bells! Nice.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Thanks Scoop! You rock!

  • CitizenEgg

    Yep Mitt. We have a President who thinks other people should come to him because he’s too antisocial to go to them.

  • CitizenEgg

    Afghanistan question. Yes Obama has been ducking his duty to keep American people informed, but that’s just one of many duties he’s ducking. If only Entertainment Tonight had thought to ask him about it.

    • maynardb50

      I guess that is what we can expect from Obama as far as answering questions. More interviews by Pop/Rock radio stations, etc. “What is your favorite song,
      color, food”,etc.”. Enough to make you puke.

  • CitizenEgg

    Yes Mitt gets it where Obama has NEVER understood. The President speaks to 4 audiences whenever he opens his pie hole.

  • CitizenEgg

    I want one of those bumper stickers

  • conwis

    I only caught the Q and A so I hope you will have the entirety up soon, Scoop.

    • I only caught the ‘you’re too late the event is over” bit… so I hope Scoop posts it again too.

  • CitizenEgg

    Good campaign stop for Romney and Ryan.

  • conservocop

    I came upon the RS site simply by going with the flow one day. Once I saw that I could stay abreast of the current events of the day, and in particular, see and hear video streams in their entirety that are so important to me and so many Americans, I was ecstatic. Your efforts are very important to so many of us who care about the direction of this country in these important times. And more importantly, you are countering the lies of the left with truth. I have to imagine your viewership has to be growing day by day. Thank you !!

    • Welcome to TRS!

    • Joe

      As WW said

      Welcome to the Scoop !

      “Where everybody knows your name!”

      Please pass it around – To nice people only though-

      We need to turn this around!

  • I enjoyed the hell out of that. Good answers, no filibustering. Great stuff from both guys.

  • Dodoforever Canspell

    Romney should be more careful with his foreign policy advisers. The biggest threat is militant and radical Islam and if one cannot even say so because it might alienate American Muslims that will be a total shame because it will mean that Romney will be alienating those who want him to address this impending menace. One of his foreign policy advisers, Robert Kagan…. should not be the one Romney should be looking at to give him the nitty-gritty on Islam and the Middle East.

    The article at link below is written by Cliff Kincaid and is a must read.

    Am I supposed to be seeing Jimmy Kimmel roasting the POTUS for the Q&A video? It is funny, but I was curious about the actual Q&A, or did I miss a joke again? 😉

    Ok, reloaded the page and all is well – that was strange.

  • I KNEW I could depend upon our Scoops to post it all and he has not disapponted! Thank you sooo much!!! Now I, and many who missed the live broadcast can also watch it…

    And THIS is one of the BIG reasons I come here day to day… Best Conservative posts.. and BEST Conservative, intelligent and just plain nice people commenting here… I feel part of this family… I’ve never felt so at home on ANY other website EVER! Scoops… Just THANKS!!!

    • sno_warrior

      right on! I feel the same. Here you get the best news of the day, everyday!

  • Does this catch Romney’s answer to the girl that wanted to know how he would “help her”? She was complaining about all of the debt she was about to run up. I’m listening to Michael Graham and he played it. Romney’s response was EPIC.

    If you can find it, I’m sure you would like it.

  • johnos2112

    Keep this up guys and Obama is absolute toast!

    • jlbs

      Would that be pumperninkel (sp)? Sorry, I just couldn’t resist.

  • Romney 56% Obama 36% Among Entrepreneurs, Romney Leads By 20 points!

    Not one word from “The Liar In Chief” about threats from Black Panthers. The same Black Panther members Holder let off the hook for voter intimidation in 2008, now threatens to kill white babies http://twitthis.com/6albgt OBAMA ACTIVISTS, ACORN, COMMIES, ANARCHISTS, INSTIGATORS ATTEMPT TO INTIMIDATE WHITE VOTE ! We demand equal protection under the law from people who are not good citizens and many are illegal here. This photo shows why we must start deportations before Novemeber. pic.twitter.com/AoLBHB3Q


    …the choice is so obvious , but will the electorate make the RIGHT CHOICE I say a resounding YES ,Romney / Ryan VICTORY 2012 in a overwhelming LANDSLIDE ! GOD BLESS THE USA .”

    • johnos2112

      Obama is in such hot water. Everyday he makes a comment that spits in the faces of Americans. “Nobody said Romney was a felon.” LIE. “You didn’t build that.” LIE. “The trickle down snake oil the right sells never works.” LIE.

  • Ranger1325

    Rock on, RS. Thank you for posting.

  • The voting choice has never been so stark! Do we want to become slaves to the guv’ment or do we want to remain AMERICANS!!! Free! Responsible! Individuals standing for that freedom! or become SLAVES!!!

    Was the WAR of Independence for NOTHING!! Did all those great Patriots who fell for us… Was that all meaningless?

    Should we surrender to an enemy that could never defeat us on the battlefield!!!

    To an enemy within… Like a cancer… It weakens us… But we fight… Because that’s our nature… We never surrender! WE fight until death!

    So it’s down to this:

    NObama… Puppet of the Socialist machine… Who only repeats what his teleprompter tell him to say,…

    Or Romney…. the last great hope for Freedom to ARISE… and AWAKEN!!

    Do we, want to be servants to Government… or Citizens of a free nation!

    The answer is obvious…

    My motto: “Do what you can with what you have” Which means do what ever you can to secure our future… Not only is America depending on you… The WHOLE WORLD is!

    Take a stand… You know what to do…

    • Joe

      I think we know where WE stand

      We must get others to Wake Up!

      (so says Captain Obvious )

      • We must work on waking up the morons!!! I know… It’s like getting a cow to jump through a hoop… But we must try! America is at stake! We must do what we can with what we have…

  • WI4Walker

    Love the Q&A session. As I was listening, kept trying to imagine O/B doing something like this and I just….can’t! Good range of questions and they didn’t seem like plants like we’ve come to see from the O camp.

    • When you say the “plants” at obama’s camp, do you mean the ficus behind the podium pretending to be a VP?

  • Joe

    I can’t wait for the DEBATES!

    More POPCORN please !

    • poljunkie

      ….and Scoop chats. They are teh fun.

    • sno_warrior

      the debates…that is going to be crazy. Biden will be KO’d and will be leaving on a stretcher. Obumbler vs Romney-another joke, which should expose the Bumbler for who and what he is, even more.

  • DebbyX

    Just a “girly” comment………….great haircut on Ryan!

    Can’t wait for November!!

  • “We’re gonna follow the law. Go figure!” Love PD!

  • proudhispanicconservative

    again scoop I asked and you responded, thank you for posting this.

  • drphibes

    Is this worth watching? I’m scared off by the running time.

    • BikerHoop

      Watch it, you won’t be sorry. In fact, watch them both. The Q&A is just as good as the stump.

  • SaraPFan

    Does anyone know of any “honest, reliable” polls in Mass., NH and other states that heavily favored Romney during the Primaries? How is Romney doing in Massachusetts against Obama come November?

  • librtifirst

    How can “our regulators and regulations” encourage small business?

    Starting a business forty years ago was a lot different than starting it in the last ten years. (this I know)

    He spoke a lot about lumber yards and cutting lumber. I grew up in logging and lumber town USA, and I worked in the industry when it was shut down by Clinton, and subsequently kept down by Bush. What does he have in mind here? Is he going to kick the UN out of our country? Is he going to cancel out the executive orders that made massive tracks of land national monuments which shut down the woods? Is he going to get rid of the “roadless” zones?

    He is talking about “growing the economy” to pay down the debt. This is not possible. We have a service economy that is dependent on government spending and currency devaluation. The debt is too big to pay it off, even if the Fed did the right things to protect the currency value. Our financial institutions have to fail before banking can be restored to working for the economy, and interest rates have to increase to correct the bad debt and get savings back. It will take longer to bring back industry than it did to kick them out of the country. Without real production, we cannot grow a real economy. The housing bubble hasn’t burst yet, because the banks were bailed out. Housing prices have to collapse and then get built upon real value before an economic recovery can ever happen.

    I want these guys to be the ones who could turn things around, but they are like first year college students who have just enough new information to form incomplete and inaccurate conclusions.

    I know that this is an election, and saying these things wouldn’t get anyone elected. So be it.

  • wodiej

    well bust my buttons. Romney actually said obama wasn’t telling the truth. Hope to see much, much more of this. I liked how he pointed out that obama called to congratulate him and asked for civility during the election and then has done just the opposite.

  • Pyrran

    Can anyone imagine the current President actually having a question and answer period with non-scripted questions? No teleprompter?
    I’m pretty sure he couldn’t do it and that’s why it hurts me when the moderators of the debates are all left leaning. Would anyone be surprised to find out the Obama camp had all the questions in advance of the debate?
