Clint Eastwood at the RNC 

The Republican National Convention wrapped up Thursday night in Tampa, and the reviews are mixed.

While the GOP went to great efforts to showcase its diversity, tapping Mia Love, Condi Rice, Artur Davis, Marco Rubio, Susana Martinez and several others to speak, fact checkers took them to task for the speeches, especially vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan’s, for their blatant mischaracterization of the truth.

Although many pundits agreed that Mitt Romney gave the speech of his life, he was overshadowed by a bizarre appearance by actor and lifelong Republican, Clint Eastwood.

During Eastwood’s appearance, he seemed to ramble from one topic to the next and even pretended an empty chair was President Obama.

Next week, the Democrats head to Charlotte to make their case in front of the American people and it will see how their convention compares to the GOP.

Now that the Republican National Contention is over, what were your thoughts? What did you like or dislike? Are you more apt to vote Republican now that you’ve heard from more of their leaders?

Speak on it!

    All I can think of is the vast amounts of money that will be squandered in the campaigns of both candidates, each pretending that they offer the american masses something different from the other guy. See here: illusion of free choice

    What scares me about this election is how uninformed some people are. How they forget that without congress(majority republican and holds the governments purse) Obama has been having a hard time passing bills that would help the nation. Congress has blocked him time and time again. This has been their tactic from day one in office. Did Congress hide that they where going to block the President? No, Boehner (Speaker) Stated on NATIONAL TV that he and his party(even stated he signed an agreement with them) will block the president from DOING HIS JOB. The tactic worked because Obama is being blamed for everything and its making it hard for him this election. I’m am surprised that people haven’t noticed that we are paying Congress to vacation because that’s what they have been doing for the past four years. The only way the next four years will go smoothly is if we keep the republicans out of the white house, congress and hell even the senate. I can go on, but who am I kidding America is the land of Amnesia..
