    I think Paul Ryan VP canditate will try to over power Romney & Romney appears insecure (almost emotionless) & I think Ryan will have little to no control on what takes place with our country. He appears a little overbearing! Almost as if he is the President candidate.
    Watching Romney's expresions, actions during Chris Christie's speech was like a spoiled brat sitting there.. No class.... If gets elected I think there will be major problems & the VP willnot be allowed to save him.

    Why during the interview with Bay Buchannan is Romney's changed opinion described as "dishonest flip-flopping", yet Obama's changed opinosn have been described as "evolving"? Interesting choice of words.

    annietweet1 says Ryan is over bearing. Perhaps she expects boriing recitation with no empahasis on opinion. But apparently she believes that "overbearing" is allowed and good only if you are President Obama. "Spoiled brat"? Perhaps she would prefer that Romney prance around and take the limelight (and credit) from the person actually making the speech.

    Does the word hypocrite seem to apply?

    In their tribute to President Reagan, the Republican Party conveniently forgot to include the Congressional Budget Office's reference to the Reagan's' Administration of increasing the National Debt by a whopping 186% to start this mess.

    (sorry for the above typos-I've been auto corrected)

    I find it revealing in Romney's failed attempt to hide his deceit in his "all of a sudden" phony sympathetic eyes. His PR agents must be getting paid very well to teach him how to appear more human by acting compassionate and disguise the fact that as Ann Romney says he'd get "the job done", (...profiting no doubt from the misfortunes of the american people from the conditions created years earlier by his party's deregulation of the wallstreet banksters as he did so well by outsourcing American jobs...) getting "the job done" implies that there are jobs available that are valued by paying livable wages! His hoarding the common wealth of the people by keeping it in offshore banks is proof that his "job" is self serving. He failed to mention any REAL solutions. All his keynote speakers strategically changed the topic and sidestepped any truth of how disastrous a republican win would be for not just this country but the world. Mitt implied going to war with Iran rather than discussing solutions, he never mentioned how a one time  $2,000 health voucher would not cover a $500,000 medical proceedure (most likely caused by the GMO foods his campaign contributors profit from) NOR the voucher, which once used up would still not cover cancer treatments from the cumulative exposure to those cheaper toxic foods mass produced by the big Agg corporations that is also killing the organic farming industry. 

    He failed to mention that the current administration was halted making progress due to the philibustering by the republicans in office who represent the fossil fuel baron's who continue to destroy the environment and the pharmecuetical giants (the real drug cartel) who keeps affordable health care cost prohibitive. Rather than create jobs in alternative clean energy, he wants to profit from a $13.5 Billion XL oil pipeline directly through tornadoe alley over our largest fresh water reserve AND in the middle of the nutrient rich farmland. As for that pipeline "creating jobs" it would eliminate thousands of jobs and small businesses that depend on the trucks that transport that antidiluvian fuel.  The writting is on the wall. A win for the republican party means the end of the world as we know it. We are looking at privatized water, food, education, healthcare, and employment only for those who have the RFID chip with the corporate mark of their name and number of their beast of burden. 
    Even Clint Eastwood (who I'm sure was bribed a pretty penny to speak on behalf of that party) intentionally acted out the madness by talking to an empty chair, gov. Chris Christy spoke more about himself and his wife tried to imply that the shirts that come wrapped in costco packages of 3 "are actually pretty good" as if he too can slum it by rubbing elbows with the common folk who can't afford individuallly crafted custom clothing. Everyone with eyes to see and ears to hear, can see and hear a wolf in Sheep's clothing. I almost feel bad for the train wreck known as the republican party. LOL.
