Republican National Convention 2012
 
Since the free for all thread is a cluster F of different debates and topics, lets keep strictly to the RNC speakers/events here.

I'll throw one of these up for the DNC when that rolls around as well.

REPUBLICANS! F**k YEAH!

Best joke I've heard so far though about the RNC is that with Hurricane Issac the Republicans only have to pretend to like Romney for 3 days instead of 4.

This says it a little better. I read an article today about the Tea Party which stated that what started out as a movement about reducing government spending and involvement in our lives turned into a chance for the radical Christian Right to come in and tack on issues like outlawing abortion and gay marriage and in turn redefine the tea party all without being labeled as the Radical Christian Right. It's basically the same premise as a shady business man that has screwed customers starting another business under a new name then shortly thereafter resorting to the same business practices that got them their shady reputation.

While it's obvious that the show is bias towards liberal views I do agree with the scenes conclusion which is basically the Tea Party gave the Radical Christian Right, which has slowly continued to become less and less relevant in American politics, a chance to get back into the fray by using the tea party movement as a stepping stone.

I am pleased though that more and more moderates and liberterians are finding their way into the Republican base. Hopefully in the near future it will allow the party to wane off the radical Christian Right completely and get back to focusing on big issues like the economy and foreign policy. And to think the Republican party use to be the party that was all about Civil Rights.

Keep in mind I have no problem or quarrel with Christianity. Rather I have a problem with people who turn and twist the Bible to blur the lines between separation of Church and State as well as justify bigotry and sexism.

I don't see their relevance as eroding at all...unfortunately. To me...a fiscal conservative, they are the worst thing in American politics. They give conservatism a bad name.

Well this should be an interesting night. I'm hoping for some gaffes but that probably won't happen.

Read they are turning away Ron Paul busses from the convention and Ron Paul supporters got into it with Romney supporters.

Gotta love in-fighting.

The part that scares me is when they talk about stuff like the heavy emphasis on "strengthening our military." Aren't they suppose to be the ones to reduce spending? I know Paul Ryan is one of the few members of the GOP with enough guts to even talk about auditing the pentagon and limiting military spending but it looks like every one else is itching to go to war with Iran.

Do they not remember Iraq where they tortured people to get them to say the information they wanted to hear and ended up spending a trillion dollars to essentially kill one evil dictator that did not have any nuclear weapons due to unreliable information that was gathered by torture.

4 years later begging for a second chance and I just can't help but shake the feeling that they're going to repeat the same stupid mistakes.

At this rate I'm starting to wonder if we're better off electing Obama. At least then gay marriage will have a shot and Roe vs Wade won't be overturned by the GOP "activist judges."

Nah, these guys aren't racists.

[quote]The CNN official declined to confirm specific details of the incident to TPM but generally confirmed an account posted on Twitter by former MSNBC and Current anchor David Shuster: “GOP attendee ejected for throwing nuts at African American CNN camera woman + saying ‘This is how we feed animals.’”[/quote]

These people need to take their vote away from the Republican party and put it elsewhere. Once the Republicans lose that vote, they'll be forced to contend with the RP supporters.

Also, Iraq was based on intel from Clinton hold-over George Tenat and had massive bi-partisan support.

If ObamaCare survived the SCOTUS, no way Roe v. Wade comes anywhere close to being overturned.
