    Love the video array behind the speaker’s podium. Money well spent, probably an awful lot of it. Excellent design. Makes the experience seem more real ’cause it’s on teevee.

    Seriously? This is something Obama/Biden need to worry about? Color me unconvinced…..

    Really? I mean, really?
    Reminds me of the old joke: How can we tell Romney and Ryan are lying?
    Their lips are moving.

    The use of the media is scaring me. They repeat the same lies over and over directly into the camera, and people are cheering. I also noticed the obvious disgust and hatred on faces when Condoleeza Rice and Susana Martinez were speaking. At least the faces the camera caught. I found it palpable. And, I thought their speeches were very effective. Scary, but effective. No mention of global warming either … you’re right about the “juice.”

    They are both good-looking men with an easy patter and a shameless brand of BS. Please note, they are not liars but bullshitters. Liars know what the truth is and try to hide it. BSers don’t care what the truth is and just want to get over.

      Actually liars who don’t care whether you know they’re lying are called sociopaths.

    Hmmm . . scared of MITTNOCCHIO and his LYINRYAN doll? Seriously? Now I admit there are enough racists and low information peeps in the GOPKKK to bring in some 25 million votes for the lying team but given that there will be over 150 million votes cast, the chances of MITTNOCCHIO ending up in the WH are slim to none.
