Hump Day Report: Time To Fill The Empty Chair

ALOHA, ALL!!  It’s been interesting trying to catch all the speeches from the GOP convention while out of the country.  I’ve never watched C-Span so much in my life!  And while I didn’t get a chance to see them all yet, I managed to catch quite a few from my hotel room or the United airport club.  Throughout the convention, there were many excellent speakers!  Mia Love, Condi Rice, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan.  But the one everyone seems to be talking about today is Clint Eastwood and his little friend – the empty chair.   Lots of fun stuff going around on the internet today (shaka to Carl).  Obama tweeted this in response to Eastwood:

But Preezy, you should know better than to get the Twitter-verse going.  These are especially good from our friends at The Looking Spoon! 

The highlight of the convention was indeed Romney’s speech.  He delivered the perfect “get to know me” address to answer the ridiculous lamestream media retort of how voters “don’t know who he is.”  IMHO, this was not a speech to get specific on policy or be detailed on procedures – it was meant to fire up the independents and the undecideds to make them realize Romney’s an accomplished, decent guy.  He’s the one who should be sitting in that chair. 

In Other News:

Surprise, Surprise! Akin Regains Lead In MO  “A poll of likely Missouri general election voters released this morning shows that, far from being out of the race, embattled Senate candidate Todd Akin has regained his lead over Senator Claire McCaskill by a 45% to 42% margin, with 13% undecided.”

It looks like Obama’s taking Romney’s lead already:  Leading From Behind:  Empty Chair To Visit Lousiana On Monday  “Hours after Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney visited Louisiana in the aftermath of Hurricane Isaac on Friday, White House press secretary Jay Carney announced President Barack Obama would call an audible in his schedule and visit Louisiana on Monday to assess the storm’s damage.”

Preezy must not have his own pen…or he was too busy….or something.  Obama honored Fallen SEALs By Sending Their Parents A Form Letter Signed By Electric Pen    “But Obama did send a personal letter to rapper Heavy D’s family when he passed away.”

Excellent ad! 

And as you enjoy your Labor Day weekend.  Gasoline Rising To Holiday High  “Hurricane Isaac and a deadly blast at Venezuela’s Amuay refinery pushed gasoline to an almost four-month high and threatened to revive a debate about energy costs in the run-up to the presidential election in November.”

Final Thought:  “We own this country…politicians are employees of ours.”  And:  “Biden is the intellect of the Democrat party – a grin with a body behind it.”  Clint Eastwood, GOP convention, 8/30/12

    Honestly, even though I had to go, I almost pi@@ed myself watching Eastwood… and it created ‘da buzz.

  2. Tom says :

    Rumsfeld, then Secretary of Defense, used an autopen for signing hundreds of condolence letters–outrage. Obama, currently sitting as pResident, uses of an autopen for signing a relative few–no outrage.

    Quite the contrast.

    Ah, Giliar, what a fun night, and thank the cable industry for c-span, I certainly don’t miss the talking heads!
