Sure glad this liberal love fest is over in 3 days. Sheesh.. I think the 23 million standing in unemployment lines "get it" and in a couple of months the dem's are going to experience another "Chick - F - A" moment!!! Americas ANGER at this arrogant phony in the White House is going to be unleashed and there won't be any poll-padding then.

HA!!! And liberals do get it? Holy snikers - let's leave the land of Oz for a moment and check out the "real world".

Welcome to the spin cycle. The one candidate who has decades of experience counseling individuals and families one-on-one on all kinds of personal matters "doesn't get it"?? Mitt Romney is the most in-touch presidential candidate in American history. How about the millionaire community organizer who never held a real job -- he's supposed to "get it"?

Perhaps it's the Democrats who "don't get it."

He gets it.
Libs platform: extracts God, and Jerusalem and includes gay marriage. Now that's hope and change. Way to go dems.

Wow, DNews posted something about...Democrats? Gasp!

Billions of our dollars to Brazil, the Muslim Brotherhood, China, Japan, Egypt, Pakistan, Finland, Mexico, Australia, Libya, and personal vacations? No Canadian oil pipeline!

What is it that Obama understands? What happened with Solyndra? What happened to the stimulus money, and the trillions added to the debt? Why are half of our people on welfare?

I guess Romney should pay more taxes.


The Demos. problem is: we DO "get it".

Thats why we won't be electing Barack Obama again.

I'm so glad that Obama "gets it". Can you imagine what it would be like if he didn't? Millions unemployed, a horrible economy that's just getting worse, some horrible health care act, etc. Wait a second...

Wow. What a group of angry men. worf left off the biggest recipient of all in the foreign aid contest - Israel. How could he have done that? Anyway, I can agree with him on one thing: Romney SHOULD pay more taxes - a lot more.

Guess they touched a nerve tonight with the posters above me. Mr. Castro and our amazing First Lady hit it out of the park tonight. They aren't "born on second base--thinks he hit a triple" people. They made it happen and they want that for the rest of this country. Those of you who are nervously waiting for the invitation to the 1% Club to arrive in the mail might want to take heed. Your convention provided not a whisper of a bounce to your candidate---this convention has started off by re-introducing our beloved First Family to the country that loves them. I'm not expecting you to abandon your partisan ways, but you got spoken to tonight. You would be wise to get out of the new road if you can't lend a hand (and I doubt you can)--because, as Ms. Dowd said last Sunday, your ways and your party are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Julian and Michelle made me believe that "becoming" might be better phrases as "have become!"

I'm so sick of this "you get more money than I do so pay more taxes than me" idea. We really do live in the age of entitlement, don't we? Everyone should just pay the same. I don't think it's right for one person to pay more than another, I don't care how much you make. I work a job making $9 an hour right now, yet I'm totally fine with someone who has more money than me paying the same amount of taxes. Get over yourselves people!

Highland, UT


I can assure you that I am at least one person out of this country that you says "loves" the first family so much that doesn't love the first family. I love how people are buying into Obama's lies about moving our country "forward". All he's done is move this country backwards and it's going to go further back if he gets reelected.

The republicans believe the poor and sick are actually dumb and or lazy.
The speeches I watched were far more honest than even St. Paul's & SP Romney.

...and I heard God mentioned in nearly all the speeches, so perhaps they don't
think you need laws forcing religion into politics.

That is good you feel that way, because you support a team that will keep you at that wage indefinitely, without healthcare or social security, and will lower their tax rate so working people like yourself can keep St. Paul & Mitt"s money right where it is (some offshore bank) and not creating businesses which would compete with the 1%.

So the Libs DON'T think religion should have more power than it citizens.
Libs DON'T believe that Israel is part of the United States.
Libs DON'T believe that gays should be treated as 2nd class citizens.

You got me there.

What's up with the ICE 'frat house' scandal? Between that and the GSA's $823,000 party in Las Vegas I have to wonder who is minding the store. Normally it would be the President but Obama hasn't been home in months.
