The tone at the RNC is just absurd this year. I have yet tohear any constructive ideas on how they plan to lower gas prices, fix health careand education, or end the war in Iraq. The RNC has proved how childish somepoliticians can be when they have no new ideas to help the country. Rudi Giuliani mocking and laughing at the fact that Barack Obama was a community organizer was shameful. Rudi Giuliani couldn't even organize his presidential campaign effectively and 9/11 occurred on his watch as mayor. Fred Thomson is a better actor than a politican and that isnt saying much. It was also paradoxical to hear Mitt Romney talk about spending being "liberal" since George W. Bush has spent more money than all the other presidents combined in history. Bush also appeared to be allergic to his veto pen.
Then, they nominate an unknown for vice president with ethics problems; which have been more of a distraction than anything else. Over the past eight years incomes are down and the cost of everything is up. Yet, the Republicans offer no newideas on how to deal with anything. That is unless you prefer another tax cut for the wealthiest 1 percent of America, financed by China.
On a side note it seems funny that John McCain has nominated a woman for vice president, since he has voted against some really important bills directly related to women's issues -- namely, the Crimes Against Women act of 1994 drafted by Sen. Joe Biden. It is time for the national Republican Party to offer some new ideas or step aside.They had six years with control of the White House and Congress and the results were a disaster. The only thing they seem to be effective at is fear mongering and talking tough.
