I never would have thought that Michelle Obama would have given the best speech on the 1st night of the Republican Convention.
Melania Trump's speech is strikingly similar to Michelle Obama's 2008 DNC speech
A Republican convention crowd just cheered and applauded the words of Michelle Obama, b/c someone else mouthed them.
The whole Republican Convention was clapping to Michelle Obama's words 😂

Melania Trump's speech had similar lines to 2008 Michelle Obama address.
How similar is Melania Trump's speech to Michelle Obama's 2008 DNC speech? Watch for yourself
I noticed a few things during each Political National Convention these past few weeks. During the Republican Convention, the speakers would speak and then go the the back while each Democratic speaker would sit in the crowd, speak, and then go back into the crowd among the people. The Republican Convention was...well..a white out while the Democratic Convention had every race, religion, and creed you could find. The oddest thing I noticed was this. Anne Romney kept on calling her husband "Mitt Romney" for some reason when talking about him while Michelle Obama just called her husband "Barack". I thought most women would call their husbands by their first names but I guess I was wrong.
I watched the Republican Convention last week and thought they did a nice job humanizing Mitt Romney. He comes off a bit stiff and always seems a little out of synch with his surroundings. His running mate is a polished politician who can always argue with a dispassionate style which conveys wisdom and gravitas even when confronted by a hostile interviewer. But after 2 nights of the Democratic Convention, I am filled with renewed confidence in the strength and viability of the Obama/Biden ticket. After watching Michelle Obama surpass a fine speech by Ann Romney, tonight's speeches by Elizabeth Warren and the absolutely superb Bill Clinton, I am totally energized and eagerly awaiting the acceptance speech of President Obama tomorrow night. Bill Clinton dissected the Republican argument and exposed it for the discredited and shallow policies it contains. The President will follow that up with an equally compelling speech tomorrow night and the American people will know which candidate has the best vision fo ...
So far, the Democratic Convention has had two inspiring, very-well received, memorable featrued speeches -- that of Michelle Obama and that of Bill Clinton. Thinking back to the Republican Convention, I'd say that the most memorable performance there was that of Clint Eastwood. At least on this score, I'd say that it stands as DNC: plus 2 - with the RNC stalled at minus 1.
Well, I've heard more substance from Michelle Obama and Bill Clinton in the last two nights than I heard from the entire Republican Convention. It's a shame Ryan had to make things up to make a case. When a guy like that prevaricates, you know he's on thin ice. I did like Clinton's call and affirmation of Obama's desire to compromise for the sake of the country. However, from where I'm watching, it looks like the Republican Party has taken a turn down a dark road that has to make someone wrong to make themselves right. I still remember the Republican goal of doing whatever it takes to get Obama out of office, even at the risk to the country. Clinton's speech and I imagine President Obama's speech will be like a thick steak compared to the very think piece of bread we got from Ryan and Romney. I really do wish Romney and Ryan would actually get into the issues before the election. A good debate in a democracy is a healthy thing. Maybe in the debates...
Why do I care? Same reason as I always have...I love my family, I love YOUR family, I care about our world! We are in this together! (sorry I couldn't bring myself to listen to one bit of the Republican Convention but I do have my standards...) I just wish those who feel the opposite of me could have seen Michelle Obama and Bill Clinton speak some truth. 4 more years!
Let me contradict my post about politics from yesterday. I have to get my 2 cents in here. The Democratic and Republican Convention speeches made me want to puke including Julian Castro and Michelle Obama. All the sentimental crap about how hard their families worked and how their kids are their whole lives, blah blah blah. I really don't give a rat's *** about that stuff. Bill Clinton was not exactly a family values type of guy but he balanced the budget and was a great president. I DON'T CARE ABOUT Monica Lewinsky Mitt Romney'S KIDS AND FAMILY OR MICHELLE OBAMAS SOCCER GAMES! This stuff is not only irrelevant, but if I didn't know better, I would say these speeches are all contrived and coached by political strategists that have nothing better to do than figure out what people want to hear.
Love it! A snap shot representative of the people attending last night's Republican Convention!!! That was one ugly, white crowd of elitist and bigots, except for Condoleeza, who sat next to Romney and looked ready to bolt for the door! These misled souls were spurned on by lead Republican porker and consumer of too much food, Governor Chris Christy psewing, slobbering and spittiing his venom out all over the ever-adoring crowd! Who would want to be associated with this crowd! I watched! Made me sick to my stomach and Anne Romney's dress!? What a big red tent with a belt! Even with all her money, she is no Michelle Obama, when it comes to fashion!
Anyone who failed to hear Ann Romney's speech, at the Republican Convention, tonight, missed the best speech that's has been given by a woman at any event that I've heard or read. She did a marvelous job, and was surely speaking before the largest crowd to which she had ever spoken. Another fine speech was given by Nikki Haley, Governor of South Carolina. As the daughter of immigrants, she also did a fine job. Not surprising, neither of these highly attractive, highly intelligent, highly accomplished women began their speeches, as did Michelle Obama, a few years back, with, "For the first time in my life, I am proud of America."
8/24/12 - Heard that Ann Romney was scheduled to speak on Monday evening at the Republican Convention, but the major Media announced that they will not cover much of anything that entire day. So, the Republicans simply moved her speech to Tuesday, when the Media cannot avoid covering it. That's a master political move, people, whether you recognize it or not. Why do I say that? Because, traditionally, the Conventions get lots of new viewers - people who have only now begun to tune in to the election. They've been too busy doing other, or just not interested up until now. Ann Romney is not a politician, but she is a wholesome, intelligent woman who will very likely come across well AND aid in introducing her husband to members of the public who do not yet know what a great guy he is. THat's one of the things Conventions are expected to do for the candidate. And, here's another prediction. She'll make Michelle Obama look sick in comparison.
I was kind of disgusted when I received yet another e-mail from "Barack" (some of you may not know POTUS and I are on a first-name basis) asking me to give him money to be automatically entered into a lottery to do things e.g. have lunch with George Clooney; meet Michelle Obama; or the latest one, win a trip to the Democratic Convention. Today I got one from Mitt Romney to put me in a lottery to win a trip to the Republican Convention in exchange for a contribution. Shame on both of you; but shame, shame, shame on you, Mr.Romney. This is beneath both of you, but at least I thought YOU knew it.
Michelle Obama speaks at the Democrat Convention and the networks treat it like the Super Bowl. Ann Romney is scheduled to speak on day 1 of the Republican Convention and they aren't even airing the convention! All 3 networks are actually airing reruns. Nah...there's no bias in the media. Luckily (unlike in the Walter Cronkite/ Dan Blather days)...WE HAVE OPTIONS.
