Speaker Boehner's adjournment of convention. . what does sidey die mean?
I listened in the car to Romney's speech and I thought it was AWESOME. It was good not to be distracted by his often odd body language.
I thought Romney opened up his life and his heart in that speech and was specific in his criticisms of the job Obama has done while being kind to the man himself. I think he made it possible for disappointed Obama supporters to step away and join Romney.
He was comforting to Americans at a time when people are hurting.
I think he struck the exact right tone for the time we are in.
I read all these criticisms and I'm just not seeing it although I have been very critical of Romney all along. His speech last night won me over entirely. I think he is exactly what we need right now.
His Mormon faith has bothered me but listening to Senator Hatch and to what Romney himself said, I don't think that will affect the job he does. He cleaned up scandal in Salt Lake and he worked with supporters and opposition alike in Massachusetts. I see no reason he can't do the same in Washington.
After this convention I am very excited about the ticket and about a sort of wind of change that is alive in America and which the convention captured and showcased. I've never heard so many soaring and vividly optimistic and patriotic speeches in a convention. It had a beautiful tone of hope. Real hope, not hype.
Best speeches of the convention:
Chris Christie was horrible.
I heard the RNC cancelled the Reagan hologram speech, too bad I wish I could have seen that... I guess I'll have to wait till 2016 now...
Looks like Mitt Romney won the twitter race according to fox... I have no idea how they measure this kind of stuff but here it is..
Mitt Romney 13,267
Marco Rubio 8,937
Clint Eastwood 7,044
Paul Ryan 6,669
Ann Romney 6,195
Number of Tweets In One Minute.
They said it was higher than Obama's state of the union speech.
Hey, you all want to hear some hope? First of all, my 25-year-old son is busy tweeting and retweeting all kinds of pro-Romney messages, and in between, he tweeted THIS:
To which he's had an extremely positive response.
Secondly, I will be driving all the way to my daughter's college the day before Election Day to bring her home to vote. Why? Because she does not trust the absentee ballot system and wants to vote for Romney IN PERSON. And by the way, she's just about made her decision on which Romney/Ryan T-shirt she'll be buying to wear on campus this fall.
And that's my hopeful message of the night.
Maybe he is having a hard time reading the teleprompter.
I like the part where the teleprompter tells him to say "the ayes have it".
A really great speech for Romney I don't know if it was the best of the convention but it was the best I ever heard from him, perhaps I'm biased because I favor the more conservative voices than listening to him. I do hope it helped win over independent swing voters.
Monuments of so many with no mention of their race, party affiliation, or what they did for a living- they lived and died under a single flag!
Great line about not trying to drive deep wedges between fellow Americans based on race, party, and financial status.
romney brought it home. he did way better then I thought he would.
so great after 3 1/2 years to finally see some patriotism !!
Glad Romney mentioned Obama telling the Russian president that after the election he'd have more flexibility. He should have spoken more about it being treason, etc.
lol good job Romney slamming Obama on his stupid line "slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet "
Obama's policies have not helped create jobs, they've depressed them. And with so many of his policies, jobs are being eliminated.
Romney hit Obama hard with his line: “You know there is something wrong when the best feeling you had was the day you voted for him.”
Great line for independents.
How sad- his mom discovered his dad had died when she went looking for the rose he faithfully gave to her and it wasn't there.
That RNC Mitt Romney video, made it really hard not to like him... I hope he can really deliver the best speech of the convention.
