I have to laugh at the political conventions.
They get up there and rant and rave, pump up egos, tell their
spins on life. They are singing to the choir. No one came to
that onvention to be swayed to vote for their party. They
came because they listen to the usual pomp and circumstance marches.
They come to eat, drink and be merry. To vote for their party. They knew
what they were going to do months ago..
So why? They televise it in hopes that someone will sit in their living
room will say... WOW... he is the man. But that rarely happens. And
most of us turn the channel anyway. Even if we are
curious, we might listen to 5 minutes and click... gone. The news
will tell us what they said anyway.
Tuesday night Ann Romney spoke. Now really, are
you going to vote for a man because his wife says he is a wonderful
guy and he will do a great job? I won't.
What is she going to say anyway.. he is a bum? Wives
don't get a lot of credence anyway.. after all ... how many have we seen
in the past 5 years who were standing my their husbands with smiles
and trying to get the people to vote for their husbands... only to find out
the guy was a creep... John Edwards comes to mind.. remember his wife?
Sick...dying of cancer.. standing by her man.. and it wasn't until it became
known he was a creep, that she fell apart. Even when
SHE KNEW, she smiled and asked us to support her husband. So no,
wives don't mean anything to me.
Don't get me wrong.. Ann Romney is probably a very
nice lady. But so is Michelle Obama. BUT, we
aren't voting for wife of the year. We are trying to sift thru the bs
and find someone to vote for. Or as in most cases... which is the lesser
of the two evils.
By the way, Republican party... Gov. Christie had more to offer than
those you are putting up for vote. I am not a
Republican nor am I a Democrat..
but I am just saying I think you missed the chance.
Glad I will be on vacation for the next one.
