Anything to say here?

I saw part of Michelle's speech the other night. She did a swell job. Of course, she's is completely wrong about re electing her husband, but she did a great job.

Now he's talking...zzz. Full of BS. Talking now about how he is going to get in the way of oil production. Thanks so much, BO!

Now he's talking about the government spending money on tax cuts. This assumes that the money belongs to the government, not the individual. No man who thinks like that should ever be president.

 And the weather is great down in Charlotte, no reason to cancel any outside events. Except, of course, if not enough people will show up.

First off, it's not the Democrat Convention, it's Democratic.

As to the second, I'm not surprised you found it boring.

The weather forecasts for yesterday evening were for scattered thunderstorms, not a chance that the DNC wants to take. That's all they need is for people to get hit by lightning.

Why are you not surprised? I was bored by both conventions, I only really watched Ann Romney, most of Michelle, and some of Obama. I saw a little of Castro's (what a fitting name!) speech.

I just can't get enthralled by crap I've heard already. Beside, Giants v. Cowboys was on!

Democrats having a democratic convention, or democrats having a democrat convention, maybe w should just settle on statist having a big government rally against freedom.

Four years ago they would have crowed about people standing in the rain to see Obama. This year? Not so much...

Conventions are boring!  Worse they are too close to the election.  Neither candidate has brought forth the "plan" for the future.  Or how to get rid of the "doomsday" coming up.  Too bad we do not have a vote on the plans themselves.  Congress has proven that they are not able to do the job.   I want to see the nuts and bolts of economic plans for a global age.  The jobs are not the important part.  Right now the middle class has been losing buying power for decades.  The new jobs pay less than the old lost ones.  We have saddled the college graduates with huge debt load.  None of the parties seem to have a clue to the necessity of middle class spending as the driver of the consumer economy.
