    @Why was Speaker Boehner booed at the RNC convention??

    Because he played golf with Obama? :-)

  • Matthew

    “Why was Speaker Boehner booed at the RNC convention??”

    As I understand it, he greatly misrepresented the results of a vote on whether or not to seat Ron Paul’s delegates. I mean, he had no chance of winning, but still, this does seem awfully disrespectful to the people that supported him in the primaries, and kind of makes the whole process look like a phony formality (which would play into the concerns some people have that the establishment would never let a Ron Paul or a Newt Gingrich be the nominee).

  • Matthew

    My bad – The vote wasn’t specifically about Ron Paul, but about a general change of rules that would not only effect Ron Paul, but any future candidates that might try to win through delegate shenanigans at the conventions.

  • Adam

    I check this site out for the numbers but have not commented on it until now. I watch Mornong Joe and most of the daytime MSNBC shows. I can not believe the absolute craziness of Chris Matthews. He sounds like a rabid dog. I had to turn to CNN so I could at least hear some of the RNC convention without Matthews bashing every item on the RNC platform. I do not watch FOX, but I may tune it in a few times to see if they act the same as MSNBC during the DNC convention. If they act the same and continually bash Obama during the DNC convention I will withdraw my criticism and disappointment of MSNBC.

  • Coffee Steve on Mini-Laptop


    Welcome to the board Adam, and your doing the right thing, check out all of them, then judge. Right or left, good to have another

  • Jeff

    @ Matthew got it!! Thanks!


    @ coffee Steve A crazy filter would keep d-bags like Ralph Hahn out of here….lmao!
    Sorry just had too, I couldn’t resist!


    I see the RNC put American Samoa, Puerto Rico and other ethnic delegates up front in a desperate attempt to look diverse.
    Did Mitt put Switzerland and the Cayman Islands up front too….?lol!

    Didnt anyone tell the RNC leadership that those countries have NO influence in a Presidential Election….eh?
    Maybe Sarah Palin did have some influence in the Convention planning after all.

  • Coffee Steve on Mini-Laptop


    Fax me some of your BBQ Sauce


  • Jeff

    @adam, If they act the same and continually bash Obama during the DNC convention I will withdraw my criticism and disappointment of MSNBC.

    They do it 24/7 why would next week be any different??? Matter of fact they will go into spin on steroids when they know the President will get a bump in poll numbers after the convention.

  • Mark

    Why was Speaker Boehner booed at the RNC convention??

    Because Ron Paul supporters are the only sane people in that party. I know I seriously would have thought of voting for Paul if elected, as it stands I probably will vote Gary Johnson out of spite that I don’t care for either of the 2 choices(and I live in a state that my vote is worthless so voting the less of 2 evils(ie Obama, in which case it’s much less of an evil) doesn’t make much difference)

  • Coffee Steve on Mini-Laptop

    @ coffee Steve A crazy filter would keep d-bags like Ralph Hahn out of here

    Are you two married :lol:

  • HRJ

    Can’t we all just get along?

    @@@@@@ Jeff

    Good commentary tonight.

  • Coffee Steve on Mini-Laptop


    Wife needs me outside a few in the flower garden

  • Jeff

    Don’t mention the crazy filter to the wife Coffee Steve, she will have a shovel or a garden hose, I’m assuming!!!!!!!!!

  • Mark

    By the way here is a video of Ron Paul Delegates letting Romney and the Republicans know how they feel


    funny stuff

  • Hartley news listener

    It is hard believe chris matthew’s rant against the rnc chairman. Totally unprofessional jornalism.

  • Hartley news listener

    If you saw it, tom brokaw was embarrassed with the matthew rant.

  • Coffee Steve on my stupid mini-laptop whjile my daughter does homework on the good one


    LOL, she loved that comment

  • Coffee Steve on my stupid mini-laptop while my daughter does homework on the good one

    Man this thing is small :-) I’m guessing half the keys

  • Coffee Steve on my stupid mini-laptop while my daughter does homework on the good one

    Have a great evening everyone, see ya Wed Morn


  • TheBoss1

    The Republican Party … the defenders of Medicare.

    Trust none of what you hear. Less of what you see.
