“Paul Ryan told so many lies in his speech at the Republican National Convention, he’s going to make Richard Nixon eligible for Saint-hood. Mitt Romney cant tell the truth either. He’s telling Americans that they aren’t any better off than they were four years ago. Excuse me!? The American executives at AIG, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and Exxon Mobil are much better off than they were four years ago thanks to President Obama, and the grueling hours put in by the GOP in congress. Who says they can’t work together?”

“GOP convention summary: Mitt Romney is so overwhelmingly bland. He was completely upstaged by Paul Ryan, whose speech was better. And among John McCain wanting this country involved in perpetual, high-dollar, boots-on-the-ground foreign wars, Clint Eastwood’s in-poor-taste comments, and Marco Rubio equating this nation to a theocracy, I’m not sure which was most scary.”

“I watched Clint Eastwood at the Republican National Convention. Now more than ever I realize how important it is to keep medicaid, medicare and social security in tact. Someday that could be me without the big bucks, talking to an empty chair waving a voucher trying to get medical attention instead of an applause.”

“Ryan has been in Washington all but one year since college. What does he know about creating jobs? Another career politician is not what we need. His talk was cheap mud slinging.”

“The Romneys and Ryans are such a bunch of classy people, they’ll make America proud again.”

“The writer to the vent on Aug. 31 who said, ‘Our Constitution states that there is a separation of church and state,’ obviously has never read the Constitution. That statement is not found in any part of our U.S. Constitution. I suggest that the writer read the Constitution and the writings of the founders, especially James Madison, the author of the Constitution.”

“I am a Female veteran, a refugee from Detroit, former non-union worker at a now closed Pontiac truck plant, and Piestewa Peak would be a ski lodge before I ever lined the pockets of the corrupt, sleazy, bullying, Chicago-mob style union bosses of the UAW.”

“As a loyal citizen, I don’t mind paying my far share of taxes. But the cost of social services, infrastructure and highways, is bringing ruin to the average taxpayer. It would be better for the federal government pay these expenses because they are bankrupting our state. Yea, that’s right, let the Uncle Sugar pay for them instead of taxpayers.”
