That's assuming that I will, and obviously meant as an encouragement to, watch it. I won't. I'm also absolutely certain that the mainstream media will put a very positive spin on it. There will be no criticism. No hard-hitting analysis. No fact checks. Only praise.

And the DesNews will continue its policy of saying nothing critical of Obama. How absurd.

I am really looking forward to Bill Clinton: who molested and harassed numerous women, but was forgiven by american feminists who clearly value power and ideological purity far more than they do other actual living breathing women. That will really make that 'war on women" meme even more hysterically bizarre than it already is

Wow, a lot of intolerance from conservatives allready. You're not going to watch it, safe bet you've never watched any democrat give a speech so why pretend you know what happens?

@ Screwdriver

Where's the intolerance? If I don't side with you, then by default I'm intolerant, bigoted, homophobic, sexist, racist, and just plain evil. Right?

So what am I to think of someone, like you, who wants our country to continue down the path of financial ruin (following Greece's example), high unemployment, ballooning national debt (again, following Greece's example), step by step giving up of our national sovereignty, bowing to China (in many, many ways), reducing our nation's standing in the rest of the world, military demise, fighting a pointless war (Afghanistan), decreasing of rights and liberties, beating down of religious freedom, forced healthcare, accepting marxism and rejecting capitalism, etc., etc.?

Or maybe that's your point. You tolerate this--maybe even like it.

I suggest you consider tolerating financial prosperity, a job for every citizen who wants one, sensible reduction of national debt, elimination of wasteful and unnecessary government spending, limited government intrusion into our every day lives, restoration of freedoms and liberties granted by our Founding Fathers, no more (foreign) nation building, a secure border, a strong military, etc.

As long as you label disagreement as being intolerance; you will continually be disappointed; but let me make it up to you by giving you some more passive/aggressive victim power

I can hardly wait for the speech by Sandra Fluke; who deliberately attended a Catholic university merely so she could play victim because, shock of all shocks, the university is actually Catholic. Ms. Fluke provides a great example of faux-choice hypocrites who fail to understand that being pro-choice means that people actually get to make other choices.

Personally I am looking forward to the hard hitting intellectuals like Sandra Fluke and Eva Longoria. Yes sir - this convention is loaded up with really smart people. This convention is like watching Dumb and Dumber II with Lloyd Christmas himself as the final speaker on Thursday.
