    Woooow , ♥ that line our President dropped on Myth and Ryan’s foreign experience. How can MYTH say Russia is our biggest threat and not Afghanistan? How about his insulting remarks at the Olympics. Yup, our President just took Pinocchio MYTH and Eddie Munster to the wood shed. 😆

    I didn’t want it to end.

    I am seeing that CSPAN is trying to circumvent the enthusiasm of the dems but asking, ‘Do you think he won the independents?’ But the people on the floor there are really extremely impressed, excited, fired up and ready to go.

    Love it – wonder how long it will take to calm down enough to sleep

    Guys I am hopping from post to post trying to read what you all have been saying. I sat rivited in front of my PC for about 4 hours.

    At last the Democratic Party under this President OWNED the right to talk about the Military and Foreign Affairs. Wonderful to see.

    I had to work (part-time job) this evening. I missed both the VP and POTUS speeches. I tried to listen to the VP speech posted hear but some how I am missing the latest version of Adobe flash player. I hope C-Span re-plays them. I just will not click on cable channels or network tv because I have absolutely no tolerance for smug pundits. From what I’ve read in the many your comments both VP Biden and President Obama must have shined as I knew they would. By the way, I am very thankful to Chips and the entire TOD family for making this space an oasis of sanity.
