they are quite willing to have people dependent on them for their "daily fish."
My favorites: Condi Rice, Rick Santorum, Tim Pawlenty, Susana Martinez, and, of course, each of the Romneys. Clint Eastwood was edgy, but he was hilarious. I hope it rang out with other Americans when he said "We own America, and politicians are employees of ours." I really wanted to hear Artur Davis, but somebody had to bathe my fifth-born that night! I think Chris Christie was good, and I like what he has done in New Jersey, but he did chat about himself quite a bit. Finally, I thought Marco Rubio was great, but his nervousness was a distraction.
I even came away from the event with a little crush on Ann Romney, who did a wonderful job giving us insight on the fact that her husband quietly gets things done, without tooting his own horn. Also, not only does she rock a classically-styled, vintage inspired wardrobe, she is beautiful and she has a remarkable patina from all that she has been through. She has a very approachable air about her. Not stuffy or conceited at all. She is going to make quite a wonderful First Lady.
I had a quick conversation with a friend who said she "likes Romney," but she just wished he wasn't so rich. What?!? I have no problem at all with the fact that his bank account is what it is. 'Cause you know what that means? It means that 1) he knows how to make money and keep it, and 2) he won't be trying to get his mitts (pun intended) on our hard-earned money.
I can't say that about our current Commandant in Charge.
So, King was wondering: after a powerful convention like we had last week, what in the world will the Dems say next week? I think I know...
1) blame Republicans for everything
2) falsify statistics and drown the viewers in a sea of numbers
3) write a fictional overview of the "successes" of their leader
4) remind America that their Fuhrer won a Nobel Peace Prize based solely on his "potential" to do something great
5) scare older Americans that Romney/Ryan will take away their benefits
We'll see, but I feel pretty certain I am right about this one.
ps- King, #1, #2, Grandma and I went to see 2016 last weekend. I was surprised at how objective it was. Seen it yet?
