    I hope Romney in his exception speech, he will explain how he will bring back all the jobs he outsource to China, and credit back his profit to the American employees, he only know one thing and that is to screw the American business's just to make a profit, Ann can talk about how he care about her health problems, but by Romney picking Ryan the butcher of health care, medicare, medicate and social security her speech will fall on death ears.

    The city of Montreal lived the scourge of the "Black Block" for a couple of months this spring. Night after night they were in the streets mixed among the hot-headed student protesters. Although this relationship seemed almost symbiotic, in most cases the Anarchists will attach themselves to any available host.
    The SPVM (Service Police Ville Montréal) got a heck of a work-out.....No doubt the experience gained will prove beneficial in the not so far future.
    They are not a "good thing".....Intimidation and mayhem are their calling card.

    Would some one inform Romney,Obama already open new oil exploration in the US, I can not believe some one from GOP has not inform him of this I do not thing they know. It ease to say he will create 30,000,000. in his first year, is he going buy back from China all the jobs he and Bain capital sold to them for years.

    Why are you worried about anarchist at the Republican convention? By definition anarchism is synonymous with the Republican party. They are all anarchist!

    Why do Republicans think Miit Romney is such a cult figure? Is it because of his Bain tenure, his welfare ads, or what?
