I find it funny you of all people pointing out any kind of dishonesty. Keep on pointing it out. Plagiarism vs Perjury see how that national discussion goes for you.


I know you and others like to say that, but can you point out where I have been dishonest? Actually, I think I've been pretty consistent and honest.

Have you found one of your positive, even slightly positive, comments yet from this thread?


No. I'm not a dog and I don't do tricks. If you desire such a thing, go find it yourself.

You asking for such a thing is another red herring. It has nothing to do with the topic.



Consider yourself called out and proven to be bias. As I said, your opinion carries no weight at all due to your inability to be objective on this subject.


Of course I'm biased. That has never been in doubt or part of the topic.

You are trying to divert attention from your illogical position and your own bias'.

It's quite hilarious to see you shift and spin.


Thanks for you admission. We can leave it there and people can now disregard your views on this subject and any other regarding the election


Are you not biased? You know that you are. Therefore, if we follow your logic, we should disregard what you say as well.

At least Melania didn't feel proud to be American for the first time in her adult life.


She doesn't sound like an American.


My favorite example of ignorant Liberal hypocrisy from last night's discussion about Melania Trump.


There has been a whole slew of social media hate from liberals calling her an immigrant bitch with an accent. On this thread she was subjected to demeaning and sexist comments too. This whole process is showing the world where the real hate lies. The veil of the left is being lifted and they are being exposed to millions around the world.


I wouldn't be too sure. They have done this a lot and we always think the veil the lifting and everyone will see them for what they are.

Remember how ugly it got over Palin's baby?


Yeah, I don't think the veil will lift for Melania.

If it's any consolation though, I haven't forgotten how poor Trig Palin was treated and it was an eye-opener for me. I had already left the party in June 2008, but if I hadn't, I would have left after I read 'potato baby' being repeated in so-called progressive forums.

In the present case, I don't have sympathy for Melania...just like I don't have sympathy for Michelle.

I never understood that Palin nonsense. People did stoop to low levels on that issue.

Melania is what she is.

But I think some of the criticisms are reaching. People who don't bat an eye at Joe Biden are ready to burn her at the stake for having 7 words in a row. People saying she doesn't sound American because she has an accent. Things like that.

I don't like Michelle because of the school lunch dictats. I could get behind her until she made her intiative have the force of law through regulation. No one voted for her and no one campaigned on diet rations in the nation's schools. I don't care what the merits are, no one discussed them or made them a voting issue. It's principle. In that case, she became the poster child for everything wrong with appointed bureaucracy.

I can meet the same challenge that I set - I can link you to both positive AND negative commentary during the night of this thread by me. Actually commenting on the speakers, events and the unfolding of the convention - which is what the thread was for.
Go back and read your posts. I think you will get the point.

Jut as an update, rumours are circulating online (and directly from reporters interviewed at the convention) that there will be a mass walk out of Cruz delegates on Wednesday AFTER Cruz gives his speech. Right after Cruz, Donald Trump's daughter is on to introduce him which is when the walk out is planned. It will not just be official Cruz delegates, but also those bound to Trump but secretly for Cruz...

I am not entirely sure what will happen then, but it will be a massive spectacle and embarrassment for the GOP... I think the reserve delegates will be called to take the place of those walking out, but will all of them come to the floor?

Here's a little know FACTOID.

No one in politics writes their own speechs.

They have speech writers.

So back to Faux outage.

Cruz is insane.
I can just picture him having temper tantrums ever since Trump beat him, trying to plot ways to get what he thinks he deserves.

If these people do anything this stupid, they are just going to lose a HUGE portion of the GOP voter base.

This one is so derailed its stupid.

If it happens as the rumours suggest then I think we will know its organised by Cruz...have to say it was a bit silly by the organisers to put Cruz on just before Trump is introduced...

Oh please ...

The hypocrisy here is beyond critical mass.

I don't think personal comments, generally, are acceptable.

Yes, I quipped about Mrs. Trump's past last night in light of the absurd plank in the Republican platform over the "public health crisis" of pornography.

Family members should be left out of politics, absolutely, but get real. How many times have Sasha and Melia been attacked for absolutely no reason. How many times have snide ridiculous comments about Michelle Obama been made (here.)

Not to mention the disgusting personal jibes at Hillary Clinton's age, appearance, fashion sense. "The pantsuit" etc.

And for that matter, while we're here, the leering sexist BS comments made about Mrs. Trump by "admirers."

Get the logs of your own eyes Righties, then go after the dust specks in your friends' eyes on the Left.

Drop the self-righteousness. A thread about the Convention speakers will inevitably invoke all sides of commentary.

That said, we can ALL do better staying on topic. But, please, stop making it seem like those of you on the pro-Republican side are blameless and/or victimized. That's particularly repugnant in this case.

It looks like Cruz is scheduled before Eric Trump. I don't see Donald on the list for Wednesday.

Eric is a smart guy. If the delegates do something stupid, I believe that Eric will call them out for it.
