Hump Day Report: A Tale Of Two Cities
ALOHA, ALL!! It’s convention time and it looks like this year will truly delineate the differences between the two parties in so many ways. First City: The Republican National Convention opens Monday in Tampa. With all the talk of a potential hurricane disrupting the proceedings, I predict the convention will go on as planned and be a huge success. In fact, rainstorms and less-than-ideal weather bode well for the GOP – it will keep the crazies away. The Code Pink idiots, Occupy dolts, anarchists and bums won’t want to protest in a driving rainstorm. Instead, the country will see a unified party with a coherent, positive message for the future. And Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates who will have voters saying “Yes we will!”
Second City: The Democrat National Convention opens in Charlotte on September 4. I think they are secretly hoping for a hurricane! Their convention has already been plagued with lack of funds, causing them to cut back a day and to move to a smaller venue. The Dems are touting a line-up of “prominent women” (like Sandra Fluke – seriously?) and are welcoming Islamists with open arms. Prediction: anarchists will abound at this commie-fest and voters will be saying “No we won’t!”
Romney Nomination Moved To Monday “For the moment, it looks like the Republican Party has nothing to fear over Tropical Storm Isaac — but they’re taking no chances. Instead of waiting until the third day of the convention to formally nominate Mitt Romney for President as would be customary, the roll call will take place on Monday.”
Convention, Not Re-Runs! “It’s official. Neither NBC, ABC, nor CBS is planning to air any coverage of the Republican National Convention opening night on Monday, when Ann Romney will be speaking. Instead? As Politico noted, ABC and CBS are airing reruns, of “Castle” and “Hawaii Five-0” respectively.”
Ann Romney Speech May Not Make It Into Network TV Coverage “POLITICO’s Dylan Byers reported today that ABC, CBS, and NBC have said their Monday night primetime schedule doesn’t include convention coverage. So, “in order to get Mitt’s wife onto television, the campaign may have to scramble and reschedule her speech.”
Biden’s Tampa Visit Strains RNC Security “It does complicate things. Certainly, it’s not the best day for us because we are trying to do a good job for the people that are going to be down in Tampa for this other event so they are all safe,” said Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee.” (Good video – fair and balanced!)
Obama Convention Closes Cancer Center “Democrats are arranging transportation for those who wish to view Obama’s speech. It is unclear if Democrats will also arrange transportation for the displaced cancer patients receiving critical treatments for their life-threatening conditions.”
Radical Islam Joins The DNC “Starting at the end of this month the Democratic National Convention will open with a focus on Islam. 20,000 Muslims are expected to attend according to the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA), the national Muslim American non-profit coordinating the two days of events they claim are non-political.”
Democrat Convention To Feature Prominent Women Speakers “Collectively, the list of speakers — who join the previously announced speaker, Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren — represents a clear effort by the Obama campaign to drive home the point that one party is tolerant of women’s issues while the other is blind to them.” Really???? A desperate housewife and a sexually-active law student will do this?
Will The Dem Convention Be Abortion-Palooza? “Agenda changes show that Democrats will make Akin the poster boy of the GOP and focus the three-day affair on abortion and contraception policy…” That should get a lot of viewers – NOT!

Bring it on! Arizona, Nebraska Take Stand Against Obama’s Amnesty “The state of Nebraska is following the lead of the state of Arizona in announcing that, in the Cornhusker State, illegal aliens that qualify for deferred action under President Obama’s recent administrative amnesty will not qualify for in-state tuition, welfare benefits, or a driver’s license.” And: ICE Agents File Suit Against Napolitano Over Amnesty Program “Ten federal immigration agents have filed suit against Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano claiming recent directives are forcing them to break the law and ignore their duties when it comes to deporting illegal immigrants.” YES!!!!

Surprise, surprise. ‘Independent’ Watchdog On Energy Loans Turns Into Big Obama Donor “Well, well, well … what a coinky-dink. The man who got picked to review more than $23 billion in Department of Energy loans and gave them a clean bill of health — without reviewing loans to already-defunct Solyndra and Beacon Power — waited a whole two weeks to start donating to Barack Obama’s re-election effort.”
Final Thought: “After four years at the United Nations I sometimes yearn for the peace and tranquillity of a political convention.” Adlai E Stevenson
