    We had threads for both of the conventions back in 2008 and I thought it might be good to have them again given how popular those threads were.

    The Republican National Convention will be held from August 27-30, 2012 in Tampa, Florida.

    Will you be watching?

    I admire Paul's tenacity although the RNC has no genuine interest in implementing an iota of Paul's agenda in their platform.

    Looking at the list of speakers, I like how they have a video for Ron Paul. Like they couldn't get him to talk in person.

    It should also be said on "We Did Build That Day"

    Well, Paul did come out saying that he "doesn't fully support" Romney. Rand, on the other hand, will actually be there at the convention.

    Was the convention suspended again? I just turned on CNN and I'm seeing hurricane coverage.

    A Troubling Chant on the Convention Floor

    Utterly disgusting and shameful.

    I don't think it's fair to characterize the whole GOP that way, but I think the GOP really needs to take a surgical razor to their fringe.

    Hey Marx, I like how you post news stories. Is there a quick way to do it like that, or do you have to individually pick the font, size, etc..

    I agree but I am starting to question how large the "fringe" actually is. I know the loudest, most obnoxious gets the most attention but it seems to be growing.

    They are growing louder because they are becoming increasingly more dated and irrelevant.

    You have to individually select everything but it's not hard at all to do.

    All you do is post the link with a headline above. Highlight the headline. Change the font to four and change the color to whatever color you want. I usually do red for republican-leaning stories, blue for democratic-leaning stories, purple for independents, and black for a general story.

    I usually add the " [​IMG] " for the post icon to draw attention to it. :up:

    I wish I had a drivers license and a car so I could go across the bridge to Tampa so I could try and meet the Daily Show crew. Would be awesome.
