GOP Convention

GOP Convention: Chris Mathews tees off on Reince Priebus - Tim Mak -

I won't be watching the Republican Convention this week.  I don't have the appetite to watch the likes of the odious Reince Preibus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee spew the Republican lies and distortions of President Obama's policies.  It's a good thing I'm working all four nights at the hotel this week so I won't be tempted to watch the sewer of lies that are sure to take center stage at the Republican convention in Tampa.

Two white men deciding what is good for women

The Republicans will trot out their new poster boy, Paul What's-his-name from Wisconsin.  Sure, Ryan ("What's-his-name") has a boyish cuteness.  But listen to him.  This is the man who has proposed to end Medicare as we know it.  This is the man who wants to propose privatizing Social Security and turning over the Social Security trust fund to the crooks on Wall Street.  You all know how that will turn out.  More rich people.  This is the man who, along with the ignoramus Todd Akin, co-sponsored a bill to redefine rape as "forceable rape."  This is the man who wants to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and make gays and lesbians second class citizens.  Yep, this is Paul Ryan, Republican vice presidential candidate.  Don't be fooled by the looks folks.  Neither Ryan or Romney are good for America.

Check out Chris Matthews confrontation with the odious Reince Preibus over Romney's "joke" about President Obama's birth.

I know Bob. I wasn't going to post anything about the GOP convention this year but I can't help myself. Romney and Ryan and Reince Priebus are despicable. Behind them all is the banality of evil himself, Karl Rove.
