Mitt, it's your turn! Romney to take center-stage at GOP convention

Tonight, the Republican National Convention will conclude with Mitt Romney formally accepting his party's presidential nomination.

His vice presidential running mate Paul Ryan by most accounts energized the base Wednesday with a compelling attack on President Barack Obama. Now, all eyes are on Romney to re-introduce himself to the nation and define why he should be in the White House over the next four years.

    You can't call Mitt Romney a total liar because he has been on every side of nearly every issue (except for Gay marriage). Sometimes he waits years to change his mind and sometimes just hours. I will predict that if the Republicans gain power enough to pass the laws they want, the US will be dead (they did it under G.W Bush) and they will intrude into every aspect of your personal life. This is proven by just watching the states where they have taken control.

    Did you ever see any very religious person actually let god handle a problem or disaster? Nope, they always spout religion and depend on humans. It's all a game of lies for the benefit of rich backers.

    I noticed Clint Eastwood made the statement that Romney would do something to balance the Tax Code. Can you please ask Mr. Romney what does Mr. Eastwood know that the rest of us have not heard on Taxes. Also his manager said Romney should tell more about the car accident in France. I totally agree because I would like the whole story how he avoided the draft. Offshore investing and draft dodging including Clinton and Bush is information that needs to be out there.
