    In another telling and ominous sign for Romney - President Obama's speech drew 5 million more viewers than Romney's.

    And overall - on TV and on Twitter - the ratings for the Democratic convention blew the Repubs away.

    The entire Republican convention looked plastic.
    Every attempt at trying to pretend that they cared about the regular working people came across as fake, because it was fake.

    We came away not remembering one word that Romney or his cheese ball wife had to say. All we remembered was Clint Eastwood's bizarre performance and Paul Ryan's blatant lies.

    By contrast, you could really feel the emotion in the voices of so many of the Democratic speakers. You really felt that they were speaking from the heart.

    the Democratic Party Convention even had more viewers than the 2nd half of the Giants/Cowboys game when Mr. Clinton spoke.

    That's because America was great when he was president. Bush was handed the keys to a country with a surplus and the strongest middle class the world has ever known. Bush ruined this country and when he left office we were in a free fall. Obama has been working to return us to a Clinton era economy. Romney would be like a return to Bush, only much worse.

    That's because the Repubs are full of fear. The pain in America is getting great enough that the conservative jig is about up.

    The most telling indictment that I've heard is that the lower office repub candidates are running away from R&R. That tells me that the voters are rejecting the Repub platform. Ryan's budget has scared away the votes.

    Don't look, but Obama is getting a bump in Gallup. Romney is really on the ropes now.

    It's about time!

    It's obvious to anyone who can see past the same old tired bigotry that Obama is not only a better leader hands down, but a better human being as well. Romney said the troops didn't make his speech because they aren't a priority.icon_mad.gif How much further can the republicans sink in their own slime?

    yourname2000 saidOne of things that really struck me was that the GOP convention was awash in red, white and blue....emphisis on WHITE, lol. The DNC, in contrast, far better reflected the fabric of your nation: it had more colour than Joseph's amazing techicolor dreamcoat. icon_biggrin.gif

    It really bothers me to watch the RNC or a Romney speech and see the audience stark white. WTF?? Heavy representation of the "get that black man out of our white house" crowd.

    I feel much more at ease seeing the diversity of the DNC and Obama speeches.

    As opposed to what --- the DNC's heavy representation of "Keeping the black man in The White House" crowd? Let's be frank here...95% of blacks are voting for Obama. This race thing you like to throw around so much works both ways.

    It shouldnt be like that. The GOP is not open to diversity. Its the white rich crowd and angry old white men trying to preserve white America and keep minorites out. Whether u admit it or not, the keep the black man out of our white house crowd is an overwhelming majority in the GOP and they like it that way.

    Not surprisingly, yet again you are being blindedly biased bordering on the absurd. Tell that to Collin Powell or Condi Rice...tell that to New Mexico Governor Susan Martinez...Marco Rublio and Allen West in Florida...Former head of the RNC Michael Steele...the Mormon (and black) Utah congresswoman Mia Love...I could go on but why bother. The fact of the matter is that your claim that "The GOP is not open to diversity is patently false.

    Oh great. U have your token black, latino members of the GOP that they parade ceremoniously in front of the cameras for the world to see. Meanwhile, the rank and file are overwhelmingly angry whites that want to get that black man outta our white house and keep his socialist hands off of their hard earned success to give to the lazy black masses who live off entitlements. God love their racist souls.

    Gawd - you really do live in an alternate pro-Repub fantasy world.
    On this planet - the GOP is a party of whites for whites - and not a party of diversity.

    In the House of Representatives there are 42 black Democrats and only 2 black Republicans.

    In the House of Representatives there are 20 latino Democrats and only 5 latino Repubs.

    And Repub voters are overwhelmingly white.

    You're a hopelessly brainwashed deluded knee jerk Repub.
    The idea that you think others are "blindly biased" and you see things clearly is what's truly "absurd".
    And laughable!

    Most of us here know that he just parrots Republican talking points, so disregard him. He never has an original idea of his own, you're debating with a Republican Party position paper. The only reason I ever reply to him is to offset the influence he may have on the more politically naive members here, who are his real target.

    When you've NEVER had a place at the table,
    when your parents NEVER had a place at the table,
    when your grandparents NEVER had a place at the table,
    it's no wonder that you, overwhelmingly, vote for someone who gives you a place at the table.

    It's no fun to be on the outside, looking in.

    Obama comes across as honest, caring, and compassionate.
    We know pretty much NOTHING about Romney. Was he lying when he pretended to be a screaming liberal so that he could become the governor of Massachusetts ? Or, is he lying now, that he's pretending to be more conservative than Jesse Helms, so that he can run for president ?

    Are you wearing mascara ?

    LOL
    I was wondering that myself.

    And all sane people know that it was the Bush recession and its after effects that have hurt black (white brown etc) Americans economically.

    The idea that President Obama's policies are responsible is ludicrous revisionist right-wing BS.

    CJ has apparently erased the epic economic failure of the Bush presidency from his memory - much like Bush was erased from the GOP convention.

    I haven't erased anything...I just don't happen to blame Bush for all things economy-related like the Dems like to do. It's simply not that simple but, of course, you simple minded one-track libs would like everyone to think so.
