If you want an idea how disinterested anybody is in Romney, just compare this article (with just 17 comments so far) against this article asking the exact same question about Paul Ryan's speech, which currently has 350 comments: http://belmontshore.patch.com/articles/poll-what-did-you-think-of-paul-ryan-s-speech#comments Same thing with how Eastwood so easily became the news of the day for all networks, surpassing any interest in what Romney had to say. It doesn't matter how much people try to stoke this fire, Romney is about as ignitable as a wet log pulled from a lake side. And while I wasn't thinking it as I wrote it, that is a very appropriate analogy for Romney, as he was only pulled into this under the same level of desperation that somebody may try to pull a wet log to try to start a fire.

"Everything is he'll tell us "after he's elected" Perhaps you and I have been listening to different presentations. Gov. Romney's platform and proposals are clear and can be found here: http://www.mittromney.com/issues I see a good deal of contructive content here organized into 23 specific bullets, but none of it matters or can happen if Romney's not elected. Here's one good example: Gun Rights: "Mitt will enforce the laws already on the books and punish, to the fullest extent of the law, criminals who misuse firearms to commit crimes. But he does not support adding more laws and regulations that do nothing more than burden law-abiding citizens while being ignored by criminals. Mitt will also provide law enforcement with the proper and effective resources they need to deter, apprehend, and punish criminals." Absolutely spot on and precisely what we need at the federal level....better enforcement of existing laws, not additional laws that only improperly intrude upon the 2nd Amendment rights of law abiding citizens.

Republican ticket receives no bump (actually looses traction) after GOP convention: http://www.gallup.com/poll/157262/romney-gets-no-bounce-last-week-gop-convention.aspx Joins John Kerry and George McGovern as only recent candidates to not get any bump from their own convention.

All you have to do is see the movie 2016 Obama's America, that should be enough to sober even the most flaming liberal up. This is going on now just wait till 2016. As of today our national debt per citizen is $50,899 and our national debt per taxpayers $140,000. German debt per person is the equivalent of $32,805.36 per citizen and their unemployment rate is 6.8% Canada's national debt is 17,002 and $70.86 per person and their unemployment rate is 7.3% And GDP growth rate is 2.1%. As long as our national debt exceeds the growth in our GDP, our economy will continue to tank. This is all thanks to Obama.
