1) I did notice how Ron Paul didn't get his vote total announced on the podium - not that it mattered in the end.

2) Iowa, I believe, had more delegates for Paul than Romney

3) VERY impressed with Utah's Mia Love

4) EXTREMELY IMPRESSED WITH TED CRUZ from TX!!! No visible teleprompter - and not even a podium to boot!

5) Tried to watch CNN - but that proved futile...FOX was a little better, but I wanted to hear what the speakers said - not just a commentator's opinon of what was said....

So, I just clicked it to CSPAN and watched every speech. Gonna do that again tonight too.


...So, I just loved former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis' speech, although it and all other minority speakers were cut from MSNBC

His official delegate count will be around 190; however, in an effort to give the appearance of GOP unity they [the GOP leadership] changed the rules at the end instead of letting the process play out as it was written.


As the roll call of states commenced, several states listed votes for both Romney and Paul. When repeating back the count, those at the podium cited only the Romney votes.



http://www.latimes.com/news/politics/la-...0,3246451.story

As the New York Times wrote yesterday,

Delegates from Nevada tried to nominate Mr. Paul from the floor, submitting petitions from their own state as well as Minnesota, Maine, Iowa, Oregon, Alaska and the Virgin Islands. That should have done the trick: Rules require signatures from just five states. But the party changed the rules on the spot. Henceforth, delegates must gather petitions from eight states.

THAT'S why when one state's spokesperson - I can't remember which one of the 57 states it was - said something to the effect of 'where we count delegates based upon the prior agreed up rules' or something.

Wednesday night is off to a good start, IMO, with Rand Paul's speech!

Why can't the GOP play THAT game?

My random thoughts:

Ryan was awesome. Paul, Huckabee and Martinez were good.

I did not like the Rice speech. Too professorial and she's not a great or even good speaker.

McConnell and McCain made me won't to puke after a minute of their establishment crap.

In an attempt to be fair and balanced, the plan was to alternate between CNN and MSnbc and Fox for the post debate coverage.

I can no longer watch MSnbc for more than a few seconds. There "journalism" is indescribably phony.

CNN is slightly better. Wolf started by saying, " Ryan delivered a powerful speech; however, by my notes he has 7-8 issues where he will have a problem with fact checkers." Randomly, flipping back and forth between Fox, i heard wolf repeat this 4 more times. That became the central theme of CNN - ryan's speech was impressive BUT it was factually inaccurate.

There is no way to make a distinction between CNN, MSNBC, and the DNC.

Yep, Ryan just made the crap up to sound good. Liberals will fall all over themselves when the liberals get to yaking. I can only imagine what the obama crowd will talk about since this administration is so inept.

Rice is a professorial, that's what she is. She's a brain and not a public figure. She did NOT use the teleprompter but went from her notes, that's what she's used to.

Although I am watching the RNC, I will not allow myself to believe that any politician has my or my best interest at heart. They are all corrupt politicians trained in a corrupt system, by corrupt leaders, for a corrupt cause. It's just a fundamental flaw that we have in our Country whether you are a Republican, Democrat, or a Crossbow shooter.

But, if I'm gonna vote, it's my job to be informed, so that's what I do. Unfortunately, we have to choose between the lesser of the two evils and in this election, that will be very easy to do.
