“He stated there’s a great fascination in Europe with the American Cowboy, the big belt buckle, boots and big cowboy hat especially worn by a big tall African-American wearing a stars and stripes shirt. Go figure?” Sooo funny!
Once in a while I would check in on the convention through the News Hour hat cam. The ‘hat cam’ roamed the convention center and local venues striking up conversations with various people mingling about. One time the ‘hat cam’ asked a foreign correspondent “Why are you at this convention?” The foreigner said, “There is great interest in Europe about President Obama and his reelection bid.” (I am paraphrasing of course.) Have fun in Europe.
Is Romney’s tax plan a flat tax?
Unbelievable how people's perception about what they see is so distant from one another. You saw a party - I see the destruction of America.
Who knows what romney's tax plan is? He says you have to elect him to find out what it is.
The author was at the Democratic Convention.
To the best of my knowledge Romney wasn't there ... not even in an empty chair.
If Romney should, by some cruel twist of fate, get elected, that will be the worst day in American history!Mr. Romney is completely ignorant of normal day to day life of common people!He thinks $250,000.00 a year is MIDDLE income. The census people say $50,000.00.Mitt needs to quit!!!!!!!
Romney's right EnRaged, and why you are so seriously misinformed.
That $250k a year person is a small business owner. And by the time they finish paying all the taxes to support the 50% of the country that pay NOTHING, they're left with maybe $100-$125k a year. Finance a couple of children through overpriced education where they MIGHT come out of school with a transferable skill and half of that is sucked up again.
Then, just then maybe, that small business owner can put away enough to MAYBE approximate 25% of a pension that the labor or federal/state union pensions provide.
Your problem is you've bought in to that whole class warfare that Obama promotes. Where the small business owner is lumped in with Goldman Sachs.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
John, I did enjoy reading your letter. You and I have personally met though your work, and I found you to be a very genuine guy. You and I do not share the same political beliefs, however that does not change the respect you have earned. With all the pulling apart of this country from the extremist would it not be great if those of us in the middle could finally get a hold of the reins?
Nice article John.Thanks for sharing ! !
DTR: Can you actually say Obama is an ordinary guy with a straight face? His white grandparents got him into an exclusive prep school in Hawaii that even my children could not attend while we were stationed there. He basically has had everything handed to him by using his so called minority status so I could hardly say he is one of the everyday people who have to scratch for a living. After all, he was also quoted as saying middle income is $250,000 or less
That's the issue precisely samkat with the Democratic elite. Both Obama's path were paved for them with priority entrance to ivy league schools. Or the property in NYC where Occupy Wall Street resides is privately owned by a major Obama fundraiser.But most importantly is Wall Street banked Obama's election in 2008 - read `Bought & Paid For` to see the hypocrite that is all things known as the radical run Democrat party of today.
After the latest bill failed to pass through the Senate, do you feel there will be any more attempts at mandating more background checks for gun purchases?
