    Nice how they have to take something out of context to make an issue of it. Even in something like this they fail to find an actual issue to rally behind.

    Have you seen the impressive stage that Romney and Ryan built?

    It would be cool if they could get the motivation to "build, create, learn, grow" into the Republican base. "Put down the remote and the fried food, and improve something"

    So where did these government funds come from? Mystically appeared?

    Which makes the criticism on Obama's speech, and the tag-line "We Built This" all the more comical doesn't it?

    I can see your point mind you. With regard to government aiding business doing business both the Bamster and the Romster have said similar things. The divide created by both administrations in campaign mode is one which originates in cherry picking quotes and creating a divide because they see this beneficial to their own campaign.

    And I for one feel such occurrences, especially when set in such a background, deserve to be pointed out and laughed at.

    Is God's wrath still bearing down on the convention?

    A terrible storm hit Detroit during the 1980 convention that nominated Reagan.

    It's a good omen.

    So you agree completely with what Obama said. Yes? Damn!

    God is a very strange bloke. It seems he uses hurricanes to signal both pleasure and displeasure.

    Isaac, his latest minion, is about to smite Haiti and the Dominican Republic tomorrow, likely for not being homophobic enough. Then it will probably seek vengeance on Cuba on Sunday for not keeping the Sabbath and various other sundry reasons. It is expected to punish the local heretics starting Monday and growing in intensity until Tuesday, at least in part for building graven icons to false gods:

    In a fit of misogyny, can I admit I miss the days when hurricanes were all named after women? I didn't used to understand, but the vagaries of lunar biology and having a spouse make this hilarious in hindsight.
