The Republican National Convention Thread#0

They started with their "untruths" early:

Dennis Hastert: John Kerry and Democrats are "weak on war and wrong on taxes"
"One no longer loves one's insight enough once one communicates it."

I just started another thread...same topic. This is going to be their m.o. They're going to repeat the same misrepresentations over and over until people just accept it. George W. Bush knows that government has an important, but limited role, in the lives of the citizens? Hello? Patriot act.

I'm not going to make it through the next four days....

I love how all the bull**** and/or intrusive Bills have such happy names.

USA Patriot Act.
No Child Left Behind.


To the general public, "So-and-so is against the Patriot ACT" sounds bad. When 'so-and-so' is really protecting their rights.

I HAVE to watch it for my AP Gov summer assignment and I'm considering dropping out of school so that I don't have to watch it.

I like watching it.

It gets my blood boiling.

Both.

CNN when I need background noise.
C-SPAN when I want to really watch.
FOX NEWS when I need a good laugh.

Between the Mass of Bush Backers and Psychotic protestors... anyone in New York, you got some major guts to not flee like mad. I tried to watch the convention, but I just can't watch it. The inability to see the otherside really ticks me off.
You, you are the worst thing to happen to musical theater since Andrew Lloyd Webber... and you I just don't like you.

I have enjoyed observing that everyone at the RNC is very, very old.

There were a lot of young people at the DNC.

That's because the people who are there and are rich and therefore LOVE Dubya's tax cuts. So why not support him?

I would very much like to know who those "Broadway singers" were croaking out "There's No Business Like Show Business." I saw it on the news this morning and I almost spewed.

Who were these people? Names, please.
Stop worrying about what I'm doing -- focus instead on what you're eating.

which is different than the parade of speakers on the dnc that accused bush of lying, of taking the country to war under false circumstances when it was apparent that every intelligence agency agreed that saddam had wmd, when even jfk2 has now admitted that even knowing what he knows now he'd have still supported the president's decision (although he'd have implemented it differently)?

Just a little side-note, here: I'm finding it a little disturbing that The Passion of the Christ is being released on DVD during this time period. Between that an the prayers taking place all the time at Madison Square Garden, I'm finding it difficult to find a way to approach it all rationally.

oh come on, d, that's just good marketing. with an estimated 40 some percent of registered republicans identifying themselves as "born again" and with the preachers that called from the pulpits for the flocks to see this film and with expected media exposure during the convention being heavy on all the networks, when better to release the film on dvd? certainly not during the convention of hem godless heathens in the town that shall forever bear the bambino's curse.
