    To them it was just lies so why watch it.

    Had they watched it, they would have learned that when Romney got married, his table to eat on was an ironing board.

    I mean, with all his advantages? LOL

    Yes, the man started with virtually the shirt on his back and has paid far more income taxes than Obama has. I do not see Obama ever catching up to Romney as to paying federal income taxes.
    I watched the convention. Keep in mind people tend to lie at conventions, I assure you he did not start with "just his shirt on his back". He actually never said he was ever poor, but the way he's talking and the rhetoric he's using made those ultra conservatives think it. So I can't say he lied but I can say what you took out of that was not the truth.

    I don't watch political conventions, ever, for either party. Besides being just flat out bad, boring television, all it is is the candidates and their supporters telling everyone what they want to hear, with no real content. They're just really expensive pep rallies, nothing more. I guess that's what makes them bad, boring television though. Plus, baseball was on.

    I agree with you. So far, neither candidate has presented a viable economic solution.

    I saw lots and lots of lying at the Democrat convention so I know how you feel.

    I happen to believe what Ann Romney reported was her life early on with Mitt Romney.

    I am less than satisfied with the Romney plan but it sure beats the heck out of the NO OBAMA plan. Look, remember what Obama said before he won the election.

    He brayed that if he could not solve this by his 3rd year, that he did not deserve another shot.

    If you believe his words, ..... lol

    I take him at his promises.

    No I won't vote for Obama. Being black just is not enough. HE has to really know how to do the job.

    See, I voted for Carter the first time. Fool me once and shame on Obama, fool me the second time and shame on me.

    By the way, I have hands on experience owning a major fast pitch softball team. We took 2nd in America.

    I have time to explain why Obama is wrong and enough time to keep track with those long 162 games. I tend to focus more on baseball near the playoffs.

    Back in 1978, when my team took second place to a team from Illinois, from Arcola, where some very rich oil man had the team we lost too, boy was it a lot of fun. Very expensive on me but a lot of fun.

    Yeah. That was Sunday. Ikea couldn't deliver until Monday. But seriously, using an ironing board for a table is completely unverifiable and notably not a statement of wealth or ability to purchase. Maybe they never ate at home and had no need for a table. Probably every person alive could name something that they didn't have starting out that will make them sound poor. I don't own a color television. Well, I don't own a television, but it just sounds cooler to say color television. "Back in 2012, why, I didn't even have a color TV!" - sounds poor. Reality, "Back in 2012, I chose not to purchase a TV because I would never watch one anyway." - Boring.

    OK, but don't you hang onto each word coming from the mouth of Obama even though you also have no proof he told the truth?

    I'd actually rather eat off of an ironing board than a table from Ikea. Ikea is cheap junk.
