Thank you, seriously!
Dearest Bob!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY:) Many more….I think that I can speak for all of us and say we love you bunches! Now I’m going to have a drink in your honor….

Happy Birthday Master Tweeter. May you have many more.
Thank you Jackie!!
Happy BIrthday Bobfr. Have a wonderful year!!!!!!
Happy birthday, you are amazing, we love you and are lucky to have you.
Happy Belated Birthday, Bobfr! I want to thank you for all your great tweets, and I really appreciate your great work in covering events that happened in Libya, and what’s now going on in Syria.
Thank you sjterrid!!! All of you are so kind to extend such warm greetings. #PRESSON
Happy Birthday Bob. . . Hope you had a wonderful day.
I know I am a bit late, but trying to catch up on the updates . . . so much to read, so much information!
Oh. .. and Bob, thanks for all you do. I retweet a lot of your tweets!
I am first???
lolol not quite but close enough.
I decided that I couldn’t stomach Rubio. Switched before he started talking
Rachel Maddow – “That was bizarre”
What the heck IS this?— David Axelrod (@davidaxelrod) August 31, 2012
ThinkProgress Live Blogs The Republican National Convention
10:14: Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) opens with a comment on Eastwood’s bizarre performance: “I think I just drank Clint Eastwood’s water.”
10:11: Eastwood to GOP Convention: “we own this country.”
10:10: “I never thought attorneys should be president,” Eastwood says. Romney has a dual law and business degree from Harvard.
10:08: Eastwood just mocked Obama for supporting the war in Afghanistan after 9/11 — seven years before he became president — noting that he didn’t ask Russia how their effort had gone there.
10:03: Eastwood is pretending to talk to Obama, criticizing him for the war in Afghanistan, and jokes, “Biden is the intellect of the Democratic party. Basically a grin with a body behind it.”
10:02: Eastwood agrees with the GOP on economic issues, but believes in global warming and has described his political evolution and support for equal marriage rights.
10:01: Eastwood narrated a Super Bowl ad in February celebrating the success of the Detroit auto bailout –a move Romney opposed, suggesting that we should have “let Detroit go bankrupt“. Karl Rove denounced the ad as “offensive.”
10:00: Clint Eastwood opens the network’s primetime coverage.
I LOVE their Live Blogging:) Backed with facts…what a concept!
This clint Eastwood speech was WEIRD. And I’m being very, very, generous here. Rachel Maddow was virtually speechless. The rest of the MSNBC panel said absolutely nothing. Here is a tweet from David Axelrod.
She wasn’t the only one. I was slackjawed quite a bit.
It was SO cringe-worthy!! I had to turn away ’cause it was like an old man, that was once powerful and cool, babbling. I felt pity for Mr. Eastwood.
I’m over there talking to myself
Is that Andrea Mitchell in green? I’m not too good on US media folks – She didn’t like it – I thought the media would be falling over themselves – my faith is partly restored
Don’t be too thy with that. They probably don’t think he threw enough red meat.
Senior Romney staff do NOT look amused by Mr. Eastwood's remarks.— Garrett Haake (@GarrettNBCNews) August 31, 2012
@garrettnbcnews LMAO! the dumb repubers jsut got GRAN TORINO'D— joe common (@joecommon) August 31, 2012
Oh, Bobfr! LOL! And happy b-day!
Again? Moving fast.
And there went the legend of Clint Eastwood………
Is this clown show a 21st century version of ‘Night of the Livimg Dead’?
Night of the Living Dead, GOPster Stylying!
Damn this is one dead GOPer! No Zombies here, they’re not coming back!
I can’t stop laughing! SMH at the Romney team…what the hell was that?
I’m not watching. What did Eastwood say/do?
Nothing that is going to help Mitt Romney. He made a fool out of himself and the Romney camp. He was literally rambling like a drunken old great-uncle at a wedding. You’ll find out the details very soon, because unless the MSM doesn’t get a gag order on his speech, that’s all they will be talking about.
Thank you HF, verbally one paragraph & visually that’s what I saw before clicking off after 30 seconds. Dood! Go home & tell Mrs. Eastwood to quit that E! show.
Lol! Folks are saying he was an Axelrod plant! You know it was bad when even the hack SE Cupp found it “weird”
I love you guys! Thanks for the posts! I thought I was hallucinating something Tim Burton woud put on film!
it was a thing of beauty and couldn’t have happened to a better guy. lolololol
That’s a funny reply!! I see I am not my friend, just hoped I was. Thanks for all here at TOD like I said above!!
And many birthday wishes to BoBfr – twitter of extraordinary merit and wonderful supporter of the President – every waking day
Thank you 99!!!
First, I thought Warrior BobFr’s b-day was Sat. No So?
Secondly, Cookemom, didn’t hit last threat yet, but were you doing your marvelous coverage? I swtiched off MSNBC coverage, then swtiched back on thinking it was over. Nada! Lasted about 30 seconds of Clint. Dude had a gunslinger background. Jeebus! Switched off. What’s your take?
Darn keyboard! Thread, not threat!
Damn, I thought it was the day after tomorrow! Belated Happy Times, Our Twitter Warrior, YOU!
So sorry, spent most of the night on twitter reading the hilarious @invisibleobama stuff on twitter.
Happy B’day Bob. Have a blast.
This one is for you.
What’s the difference between single women and married women?
Single women come home, see what’s in the fridge and go to bed.
Married women come home, see what’s in bed and go to the fridge.
Just heading to the fridge.
Hahahahahahahahahahhahhahahahahahahaha!!! Too true!
You are soooo bad
Fantastic!!!! Thanks friend!
LOL. So true!!
You’re SO BAD!
You should have seen the original opening line.
“why the married women are fa…..er?”
Ha…..!!! More, more, more for Bob!
Oh, now I can tell I am defnitely missing something…..
Feel free to drop in a few benjamins in honor of the RNC and it’s shameful portrayal of all that is wrong in America! Nex week ~ we shall see what is RIGHT!
Happy Belated Birthday Bobfr! Hope you had a blast on your 65th
Thank you hf
Happy birthday Bobfr! I hope you enjoyed your special day.
Rubio just spoke of people in the past never being able to succeed without wealth (and the GOP wants it different??) – he also gave government (not god and faith) kudos for allowing everyone to get ahead – they can’t help supporting democrat ideals – and the crowd don’t quite get it). He hasn’t mentioned Mitt yet – that I have heard.
Happy birthday Bobfr.
Thank you Smooooooth
ooooo I like that, smooooooth. lol
Paying back student loans, did Robme just say, after saying borrow from your parents.
OK. All partisanship aside, Marco Rubio's speech is sounding really juvenile, like a roast at a frat house. #RNC2012 #p2 #topprog #tlot #DEM— David Badash (@davidbadash) August 31, 2012
Just had a call from a friend who said that Clint Eastwood has been saying the most distasteful things about President Obama. Is this true?
I could not bear to hear this kind of thing again:
Pat Boone saying the White House needs to be fumigated after the OBAMAS moved in…
Dean Koontz in a recent “Odd” novel displaying his hatred of Obama through one of his characters…
Michael Moore telling people to start practicing saying President Romney. No matter his reasoning, it is a self-defeating destructive statement.
He just as well be a republican.
Jon Voight…barf inducing.
Paul Ryan… A Christ-less Catholic
Mitt Romnet,,,,A Christ-less Morman
And on, and on, and on…
If it weren’t for TOD, I would lose any hope for racial harmony. Thanks, Chips and everybody here at TOD for being simply family. You will never know how much this means to me, a 65 year old African-American from the deep south.
This kind of stuff stabs like a knife. Being a part of this family helps staunch the bleeding.
Don’t worry about them Eve, they’re all scum – especially Michael Moore:
No wonder he wants Romney as President
My mother was upset too. She will never watch another Eastwood movie again. I think he just lost a lot of AA fans….what he said was uncalled for….and they claim Democrats do this too? We’ll see next week. I know that President Obama does not condone it around him. Maybe past Democratic presidents allowed bashing but it next got this nasty.
Happy Birthday Bob!
Smiles and laughter, joy and cheer
I wish you new happiness that stays throughout the year.
I’m so glad you’re on our side
Thank you Donna. I’m glad YOU are on our side, as well!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOB! So when was your B-Day?
keep in mind the republican lies/applause lines for the programmed seals only work for that purpose because of the 24/7 repeating of them by “the news.” they gleefully promote these focus group tested lies so that all anyone has to say is, “biden! ha!” and the trained seals clap and bark. the media enables all this insanity. they are problem and we should do everything possible to put them out of business for good.
Someone should tell Marco Rubio he's standing on my foot right now.— Invisible Obama (@InvisibleObama) August 31, 2012
LOL.. I love it! What a crafty idea!
I was just on DU and they were saying how BORING he is.
so mittbot will be going on after 10:30pm?!? republicans fail at every single thing they try to do.
Rubio talking about his immigrant youth in the land of opportunity – now spanish – not too many in the audience understood that. – Not too many wanting to stand up and cheer either. He sounds like a democrat, talks like a democrat – why does he support Mitt Romney??
I got home from canvasing and turned on the t.v. just in time to see Rubio. Very dramatic and almost made me cry, except none of it made sense. First I heard him going at President Obama with a nasty sneer on his face, and then he started plunking heart strings. It cracked me up when he spoke in Spanish and the old people started clapping because “wow,Look that boy is speaking a foreign language, isn’t he smart!” They had no idea what he was saying. Now Robme is on. I think I might puke. “I like they way his children’s faces light up when he walks in the room.” “The way he loves his mother.” Puke, Puke puke.
Crying tears of laughter, Cindy?! LOL! Thank you guys, you’re getting me thru this last day of the crazies! All that cheering is cos Christie gave delegates a pep talk to cheer, be loud, etc., for Willard. Ahem, excuse me, for his 2016 bid! Ahem!
The GOP built me.— Invisible Obama (@InvisibleObama) August 31, 2012
My mom just texted with orders on what to do if she ever starts mumbling to invisible chairs. #RNC— Cara Lynch (@caradox) August 31, 2012
I’d better send my kids a note too. Good reminder.
LOL! Invisible people in Visible Chairs! Hoo-boy!
Um, just flipped back to msnbc. What the hell is Rubio talking about?
Did Rubio just say we chose more gov’t, and fellow republicans and then fellow -Americans?
you caught that? I caught that. hahahahahaha
what the hell?, parts of his speech sounds sneakly familiar.
I thought I was losing it when I heard that!
I forgot to check is #invisibleobama still on stage?
Omg! R u guys watching Willard’s entrance?! Omg!! The cow said: “state of the union style.” hahahahahahahahahahhahhahahahahahahaha!!
Who is “the cow?” And that is as close to a State of The Union he will EVER get.
I could swear you’ve asked me this before Lorraine. It’s Maddow.
LOL! I’m sure I may have, but that’s for humoring me. LOL.
I think she was being snarky.
Walk those Fully Loaded Magic Underpants, eh Willard?! Crap!
Didn’t watch Clint the mummy Eastwood speak but I heard he made a fool out of himself. I’ve been trying to stay away from the RNC it’s always a bunch of anti-democrat propaganda hatefest but I especially like Obama and hate when I hear all the disgusting language against him.
I don’t think you’ll be able to avoid the Clint disaster. its going to be played hard. Did you see up above that there is already an Invisible Obama twitter account?
So, let me get this straight: Clint bombed, and Marco is mopping up the stragglers. Wow.
I see white people…….a sea of white people!!
And they’re bewildered, flamoxxed, bamboozled! They just realized they’ll never ride the Cracker Bay!
Meant to write “sail” not “ride”
So proud of our president. He can win a debate with Clint Eastwood without even being there!! #Obama2012— Azure Ghost (@AzureGhost) August 31, 2012
Ok! Thereis just something off with Romney! Strange man!
Yesss…he moves like the Tin Man.
Kissing the crypt keeper! Cooties!!
Some fool on nbcnews had to tell us where the Mittbot was on the screen – He still looks like a cardboard cutout – Ole Chuck is down there talking up Mitt – Chips tweets are spot on
You know they bussed those folks in to help out Mitt Romney.
what the heck???? yes these people were bussed in. They were given their queues on what to do during Mitt’s speech.
Not watching, but following on twitter and liveblogs.
How’s about that Clint Eastwood guys…BHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHA,…(BREATHES)…hahahahahahahahahahahahah
Romney is a humble man in accepting the wonderful nomination. Now he is talking up Ryan – the man is not quite right – Ryan was yesterday.
whattt??? did the same speech writer for Clint Eastwood write Mitt’s speech?
Did anyone watch that crap fest that was Clint Eastwood? He was actually losing it in real time. He was talking to a chair. A CHAIR. The chair already has a twitter handle and is hilarious. Twitter is the BEST way to watch this batshit craziness called the GOP convention.
Ok, so there was a fucking chair. Holy crap. Man, and to think I respected him as an artist. He’s lost it.
Maybe that was GOP-artistry, Hollywood Style: taliking to an invisible person in a visible chair?! LOL!
Clint, come on now, where’s your creativity! Dood, seriously?
Some one here yesterday was worried about Clint Eastwood. Well, No worries. I had it almost right early today. I said today that Clint had a reality show for his current wife and kids…..I detest reality shows. For me, that was a sign of Clint Not as Eastwood most of Us had imagined. I was right. Mr. Eastwood looked pathetic and lost. That was a shame for whomever put him out there on some meds, wine or just old age. But they wanted to show case Clint with the strong image people had of him and NOW, they failed woefully,
Karma has a way of paying a visit and shocking the heck out of people.
Wow. That was the best advert for stem cell research, elder services, preventative care and counseling ever. I agree about Clint Eastwood and the family on the reality show. That signaled to me that something had changed. But jeez, now I see. He’s gone fricking off the deep end. Sad for him. What a way to end a career.
As for Romney, let’s see, invoking the very non-partisan Neil Armstrong, already throwing his religion aside saying what sports team was more important, and claiming that it was the big bad Americans that got us to the moon. Hate to tell you, Mitt, but we got to the goddamn moon with the help of many ex-pat Germans like Werner von Braun. Geez! Turning off That 50s Show and donating to OFA.
Willard trying to go big like Raygun! Freedom! Freedom of religion! Freedom to build a business!
The tweets about Clint’s performance are HILARIOUS!
yep these folks were given their marching orders. folks were clapping at spots where there should be no applause.
Whenever you worry about the polls, check out Nate. He’s always a comfort.
electoral-vote.com is also must go to.
Ok, what’s this empty chair business about? Please, please don’t tell me there was an empty chair onstage representing PBO.
That’s exactly what happened. It was an Aricept worthy performance.
Clint Eastwood was going for the academy awards? I saw a little of him….quite by accident. I stopped and honestly, I didn’t get what he was saying? Was he pretending? Now that I have thought a bit more about it. Was Clint pretending? I had seen him on Jon Stewart or something months ago and he sounded OK. Today he sounded like he had a real Senior moment or perhaps, under some influence. It was bizarre.
FIGHT lolololol fight
Are the Paulistas raising a ruckus!!!
yes they did a few times but got drowned out by chants of USA USA lololol
Happy Birthday Bobfr
Thank you terim!
Omg. He looks so disengenuous. Also… People chanting, not his name, but USA! Ha! That says a lot.
they were trying to shout down the protesters in the back. lolo probably the Ron Paul folks
We have a mystery folks:
Rachel Maddow MSNBC (@maddow)
8/30/12 10:36 PM
I couldn’t see who it was who shouted “No, No, Don’t Touch Me!”.
this is so scripted it is funny.
Can’t listen any more – all anti the President and NOTHING about what Mitt will/won’t do – no policies – just hate. If anyone hears any policy do please let me know
The prime directive is to make sure we get out the vote. Take nothing for granted. EVERYONE HAS TO VOTE. Remember it’s for a President not a King.
My union sent me a form to permanently vote absentee. On its way to the registrar tomorrow.
“Take nothing for granted. EVERYONE HAS TO VOTE.”
Willard going for benevolent, aw shucks! I wish President Obama had succeed, because America deserved it!!
Eff him! He already know why, he’s talked to the Orange Man & The Bird Man back in 2009. They did their job: Make Sure POTUS Does Not Succeed! Enough already w/ the pious CRAP! You need to change your magic underpants, Willard. Too much CRAP in there!
AP reports: "backstage,
stern-faced Romney aides winced at times as Eastwood's remarks
stretched on." #nbcpolitics— Betsy Fischer Martin (@BetsyMTP) August 31, 2012
Shouldn’t Willard be talking about his plans to move this country forward? Why is he talking about the moon? Does talking about Armstrong give him extra points? “When you need big stuff done, you need an American.” ——okay.
100% funded by taxes too. neil armstrong was annoyed about all the cuts to nasa in his later years. he wanted more taxpayer money for space exploration. i can’t believe how dumb these people are.
Neil Armstrong, rest his soul, was very much non-partisan, refusing to be used by any party. He was a strong advocate for engineering, science, and always for NASA. Someone in Romney’s camp needs to do their homework. Armstrong might not have approved.
Did the Mormons baptize Armstrong yet?
Oh, he mentions his Mormonism, but no rousing cheers.
whhhaaaaattttt!?!?!?!?! you need an American to get anything done?!?!?!?!?
this is pretty bad. I could almost feel sorry for Mitt. Almost . . .
Why does Mitt keep smacking after every sentence? Annoying.
His son did the same thing when he spoke to the 3 Latinos in the audience. I noticed how he smacked even while speaking Spanish. This is the son that looks nothing like the other ones. I thought oh oh Ann may have offered the pool guy some lemonade. Now that I see the Mitt lip smack, I guess everything is cool.
Mitt Romney took a chance on Clint Eastwood, but the only person whose day was made was Barack Obama’s.
As the national broadcast networks broke into local coverage to cover Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech, millions of Americans around the world were treated to a suggestive, rambling 10-minute monologue by the aging American icon that played squarely to the conservative base. At a moment when Romney was trying to transcend the party he has now become the standard-bearer of and rise to look presidential, Eastwood’s appearance appears to be folly.
A powerful, 10-minute biographical video, chronicling Romney’s life from birth to today never made national air, and was confined to cable news.
…. Eastwood’s routine was one part failed comedy, one part red meat, and through-and-through a missed opportunity to reach out to swing voters.
Marco Rubio’s speech following, and the video preceding Eastwood, represent the convention Mitt Romney has tried to run — respectful and mindful of what average Americans want to hear. Eastwood’s speech was just the opposite.
what?!? rubio’s speech was “respectful and mindful?!?” wtf?!?!
I had to tune out Chips. I was getting a headache. OMG, I missed the old guy. Of all people, why did they pick him?
Oh yeah. Willard definitely going for Father Benevolence. What a fake.
When the hell is he going to get to the part what is he going TO DO?
I went out tonight canvasing. I came to a lady, about 30, who had just gotten home from work. She was still wearing her scrubs. She said, I never vote.I don’t have time to look stuff up, and I don’t feel right voting if I don’t know anything. I proceeded to explain why I was there, and my support for the ACA. We shared back and forth, and she decided to register. She was going to register as an unafiliated. Her husband butted in and said, don’t, you won’t be able to vote in the primary. She was confused and said is that the Presidential election, I said no, that is the general. Her husband said, register as a republican. I said if she changed it she would have to cross it out and initial it. She did, and then told her husband, I am registering as a Democrat! One vote at a time!!!
One at a time….
Senate Republicans: Filibuster everything to win in November?
WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans are using the filibuster to limit and often derail Democrats’ initiatives, paralyzing the Senate and making it nearly impossible to accomplish even the most routine matters.
Since Barack Obama became president nearly 13 months ago, Republicans have made it clear that 60 votes — the number needed to cut off debate in the 100-member Senate — are required to pass not only major Democratic programs, but also many routine proposals. (Democrats controlled 60 Senate seats from July until last week, when Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., was sworn in.)
“Republicans have ratcheted use of the filibuster up to completely unheard of levels. Look at the things that the House (of Representatives) has passed that can’t make it through the Senate. The list just keeps growing,” said Norman Ornstein, an expert on Congress at the American Enterprise Institute, a center-right policy organization.

Bull shyte. oh please this is So FAKE. It isn’t working.
He’s trying to recoup the women’s vote by mentioning his mom. Wow. “he, look at me! I don’t hate women, look how I made them speak at my convention!!”
Did he mention any of his grandmoms, the ones that his granddad took to Mexico to avoid the polygamy laws?
Only that his granddad fled when there was war or something

Good for you.
OMG…Twitter just broke down…
Romney’s speech is so damn weird and getting weirder by the minute.
hf, the humor in my TL has me totally out of breath laughing … that’s how bad it is for Mr Stericycle …

When Mitt Romney says "Mr. Chairman", do you think he's referring to me?— Invisible Obama (@InvisibleObama) August 31, 2012
I have been on twitter and it’s up to 20,000 followers now. It’s too funny. One person said, ‘I’m freaking out! Invisible Obama is sitting on the couch next to me!” Another, “Invisible Obama is signing Mitt’s speech behind him.”
I tried to listen to Mitt and he’s on in the background, but my goodness the twitter machine has me ROTFLMAO!
btw, just listening to the audience, Mitt’s not getting the love. Every single other keynote speaker got a bigger response. Ok gotta go, be back later. Time for more yuk yuks.
Here you go folks!
I tried. I really tried to watch this but it’s making me so uncomfortable.
The audience seems unsure if they should cheer, laugh, or call an ambulance.
If you go down to the comments, you’ll see a that the RWNJs are trying to say that Clint hit it out of the park. Huh?
Thanks. I just saw the whole thing. Thank you.

Rachel Maddow Baffled By Eastwood’s RNC Appearance
Telling people that they must know something is wrong if the best feeling they’ve had in the last 4 years was the day they voted for PBO. said PBO had no work experience for the job he had…. Wow…..seriously?
Do you think he’ll admit to obtaining gov’t help with Bain, as investigated, he brought it up.
Wow. Capehart is having none of it … sorta surprised …

I know he didn’t try to hit at Michelle Obama.
Oh please. weak sauce. weak.
okay so I ran outta tweets – I guess I’m in twitter jail? anyhoo, listening to this massive ego called Romney… talking to a bunch a yahoos who we KNOW didn’t vote for Barack Obama pretending they’re disappointed in the President.. the glow has worn off. What a lying manipulative pos. And the name Michelle Obama should not come out of his mouth. Gawd he’s a nasty bit of humanity.
He mentioned Michelle Obama….why? Then said PBO is against success. Rewriting Bain’s history. Used Steve Jobs being fired from Apple before going back. He’s mr big businessman.
Sorry I missed it, but I just had the best time reading the twitter feed about ol’ Clint rambling on to a chair—-laughed till I cried —-literally. Everyone’s reaction could be summed up by “What in the world was that? Did I just see what I think I saw?” Etc. etc. etc.
@invisibleobama has 21,000 followers. It is hilarious.
Me too. I’ve been avoiding this mess all week but Invisible Obama has me hooked. I think I’m in love!
Lumping Jimmy Carter and PBO together as failures.
fun fact: 4 years of carter created more jobs in america than all 12 years years of bush presidencies combined.
Equating device senses and failure with PBO.
oh bloody hell Romney, of course we’re better off than we were 4 years ago, get a grip.. this is truly the emporer has no clothes. What a load of hooey.
Help me, What is he going to do as POTUS?
Oh gawd, what a bunch of bullshit. It’s all PBO fault.

Poor Mitt looks like he’s in pain, even when he’s giving ‘applause’ lines.
Mitt’s speech strikes me as a series of lines strung together. He’s finally gotten to the part where he says what HE stands for . Oh, a series of generalized statements just like on the campaign trail.
Saying PBO economy crushed the middle class. Saying Americans are poorer now than before. Saying PBO’s tax plan will eliminate small businesses. Wow.
Here comes the lies.
He has a plan to create 12 million new jobs? Pleas share.

Happy Birthday Bobfr! Better late than never! Hope it was a good one
Thank you – great celebration on Sat and then the surprise here, tonight!! So cool!!
Now balanced budget bullshit
He really is lying as bad as his vp choice.. just total crap leaping from one topic to another… he’s really all over the place. Folks if we don’t reelect POTUS, this country will not survive this man. He says he has a plan to create 12 million new jobs.. methinks he’ll be deporting a whole lotta folks, which will leave some jobs available. oh also he has a plan to make us completely energy independent.. that would be attacking and taking over Iran – my guess. oh and VOUCHERS for school… good old seperate and unequal- the repub dream.
Lying and saying PBO raised taxes on the middle class. I guess truth has no place in the GOTeaP.
ThinkProgress has compiled a Viewer’s Guide comparing what Romney says with the facts:
Romney On His Tax Plan || Romney On Wall Street || Romney On The Budget
Romney On Bain Capital || Romney On Obamacare || Romney On Medicare
Romney On Women’s Health || Romney On Energy || Romney On Global Warming
Romney On The Auto Bailout || Romney On Welfare Reform || Romney On Food Stamps
Romney On Security || Romney On LGBT rights
Mitt is speaking as if Republican policies aren’t entirely responsible for the mess we’re pulling out of. http://www.nationalmemo.com/republican-national-convention-night-three-lolgop-liveblog/ …

Now he’s getting sarcastic, heal the planet?, slow rise of oceans? whaaaaattttt?
Willard joke about healing the planet and something about the tide…… Nobody got it……oh, more apology tour shit.
oh yeah.. and we’ll save the day by getting rid of that nasty Obamacare. oh and he respects and understands women too, also. and the biggest whopper of the night.. he won’t raise taxes (unlike Obama) on the middle class. yuk yuk. I swear my eyes are stuck in a constant rolllll.
what?? something about POTUS stopping the ocean from rising and healing the planet… oh I see, but Mr. romney only promises to Help My Family. Thanks but no thanks.
hey, he stole hillary clinton’s line! elizabeth warren 2016!
Well the Rightwingers are completely in love… because he cannot stop saying Obama.
poland, mother f-ers. get sum!
War, War, let his sons go to war. Russia again? good gawd.
Something tells me PBO is going to go after Willard like gangbusters. At least he gave credit about OBL. lies about Israel, crap about Iran, stupid stuff about Putin.
Just turned the sound on to hear what Mitt will NOT do – but what will he do? All attack on the President. And now the crowd are chanting USA – hahahaha – no-one chants Romney. Now we are going to bomb Iran – lets go to war again and again – now the boos – and does Romney tell people not to Boo – NO
Gotta turn it off
Their very chanting seemed faked. Ha! Ha! Ha! Mitt just promised to show Mr. Putin more backbone! Wonder where he’s going to get it?
well said – he even looks like part of him is missing – backbone is about right
Wow Romney’s speech was even more boring then McCain’s speech in 2008. All he was doing was rambling about his kids and sounding so unmotivated, almost zombie like.
But the media loved it! So…
Romney, at Harvard, Merged Two Worlds
One of the most exclusive clubs in academe is a Harvard University dual-degree program allowing graduate students to attend its law and business schools simultaneously, cramming five years of education into four. On average, about 12 people per year have completed the program — the overachievers of the overachievers — including a striking number of big names in finance, industry, law and government.
The program is so small that it has drawn little attention outside rarefied circles, but that may change as its most famous graduate, Mitt Romney, campaigns for the White House, subjecting every phase of his life to scrutiny.
When Harvard started its so-called J.D.-M.B.A. program in 1969, there were just a handful like it. Others have cropped up since, but Harvard’s has what may be the most successful alumni roster, particularly in finance.
In addition to Mr. Romney, founder of Bain Capital, the roughly 500 graduates include Bruce Wasserstein, who led the investment bank Lazard until he died in 2009; leaders of multibillion-dollar hedge fund and private equity firms like Canyon Capital Advisors, Silver Lake Partners and Crestview Partners; high-ranking executives at banks like Citigroup and Credit Suisse; C. James Koch, founder of the Boston Beer Company; and Theodore V. Wells Jr., one of the nation’s top trial lawyers.
Yo .@MittRomney that empty chair is kicking your butt, dude cc: @Reince @davidaxelrod @stefcutter @maddow @Lawrence @hardball_chris @edshow— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) August 31, 2012
Happy Birthday Bob, it wouldn’t be the same here without you!
Is it over yet. Tell me it’s over?
Hey, Clint – Crazy old white fool look is none too appealing, even if you’re there to plug your latest movie. Had ya muted, but – even still – your old codgerness made my day! I can only guess you were talking to the chair. Did the chair talk back?
Hey, Marco – No, “American exceptionalism” is what’s spelled out at the Statue of Liberty. Now, I realize your parents may not have come into the country via The Big Apple, before or after Castro, so you can find Emma’s poem on Wiki and maybe you’ll learn somethin’. Not sure what you said, because I only listened to the point where you dared speak our President’s name out loud.
Hey, Lyin’ Ryan – The five o’clock shadow on top of the widow’s peak is not a good look for ya. Not now, not ever.
Wives of Willard and Lyin’ Ryan – There is NO JOY in your eyes.
White people at the convention – After tonight, perhaps slithering back under your rocks might be a good idea.
Hey, Willard – I’m a white woman, your age, and – just so you know – I would never have dated you. Oh, and, the pasty white guy look with the pink eye shadow does not work on the teevee. Never noticed before that you bare your teeth when you speak, since you basically have no upper lip. How unattractive. Flag pin? Looks upside down to me – isn’t that a sign of distress? Teleprompter – oh no you wouldn’t. Not sure what you said, but the perp walk you did coming into the hall with the infamous Charlie Chaplin gait made me want to lose my dinner. What a fool you are. Could you hurry up the lies? For a change, I’d like to hear the reviews. Even your Secret Service people look bored.
Oh, look, Willard’s still speaking. Lip reading the “crowd,” it appears they are chanting USA. Wonder if they will still be chanting that in November, when President Obama is re-elected? I know I will.
Brilliant, Jacqueline!!!! Thank you!!!!
Thanks, Birthday Guy!
wow. it’s worse than the descriptions i had been reading. was there a comb shortage in tampa?
Clint Eastwood is pitiful. His wife should have told him this time honey I am making the decision. I don’t want you to go out there and make a fool of yourself. Well that is what he did.
11:12pm on the east coast on a thursday night, and he’s still talking.
I’m so sorry.
Blaming bad educational outcomes on PBO. saying PBO is dividing America by race and class. Now talking about a united America.
there are no words for this wackjob. LIAR.
Restoring America? Really? To what? The ending was the most passion I’ve ever seen in Willard. Looks like he’s been watching PBO. too bad you can’t teach old dogs new tricks. Step aside Willard, next week PBO will teach you how it’s really done!
yeah he’s been told to act like Pres Obama- problem is theres no substance to mitt, no truth and no heart… thats why they had to have an entire lineup tonight to tell us what a swell human he was. Never seen anything like it in my life. It was a MittFomercial.
Yo .@MittRomney talk to us about war after your five sons have enlisted.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) August 31, 2012
Such inspiration…I am in awe. NOT!!!!
We’ll see what the rest of USA think, around the world, I suspect, should be worried.
Stiff as ever and nothing new, move along….nothing to see here. He seemed uncomfortable trying to be comfortable. His eyes moved to the side to read the teleprompters before his head did. Made him look robotic.
even tom brokaw is having a hard time finding something good to say. brokaw concluded saying that line about the planets and tides was the high point. huh?!?!
oooo…david gregory that it was absolutely fabulous! of course…
Oh God! Someone just said on twitter that #InvisibleObama just ran off the stage. I am weepin over there. It is beyond hilarious
Me too. I think the only folks listening to Mitt are the folks in the audience and the paid pundits. Everybody else is on twitter.
Schmidt will likely have a love fest for Willard
I wish that the DEMS DO NOT COMPROMISE on those TAX CUTS. LET THEM EXPIRE. FUNDING FOR THE MILITARY CUT. Then see what will happen.
NBC news people – underwhelmed – even Chuck!
I just figured something- Tweety did not get an interview with the President, but CNN did.
Me thinks, Tweety has yet another ax to grind, by promoting Robney.
Just saying- you never know what side Tweety is on, ever.
MSNBainC Panel loved the speech.
But you Guys said the opposite.
New post everyone:
DANG, so many hysterically funny tweets and I’m in twitter jail. ARGHHHHH.
oh me too meta, its awful!
What’s up with Lawrence? He was very impressed with Romney’s speech (or pretended to be on air).
Have T. Hall dump O’Donnell, he has been acting strange the last few days.
Larry Odonell said this is the best speech Willard ever gave.
But you Guys said the opposite.
So, which is it?
I want the truth, seeing how I ain’t watching? LOL!
The “best speech Willard ever gave” is not saying anything! Willard gives terrible speeches. When he is compared to himself, there is no standard!
well jovie, he riled up his haters & thats what counts for them.. Lotsa Obama is, Obama doesn’t, Obama isn’t… and some good ole birther bs.. thus yeah I’m thinking repubs are in crazy heaven right now, their guy sure did deliver. The rest of the world, not so much.
faint praise ? who the fuck knows what turns on these pundtwits?
The bar set very low, so low that just showing would make robme look good…just like they did for palin in 2008.
Happy Belated Birthday Bobfr
