I hope to be here.  As I said last night, we watched the coverage on Glenn Beck TV and really enjoyed it.  There was non-stop coverage with no talking heads interrupting.

Mitt Romney just introduced Ann Romney by video and now she is speaking to the breakfast group in purpose.... she is more subdued than last night and is speaking about her sons and DIL's... who all, BTW adore their MIL...  the one DIL told the story of going into labor late on Christmas eve while wrapping gifts with another of the sons... rather than wake everyone up he drove her to the hospital.  They left a note which evidently no one found and when no one called the hospital the next day she called the house and Mitt answered the phone and said "where are you, we are waiting for you to come downstairs so we can all open gifts)......he then told her well come home, babies never come on time!  She said nope, this is the real thing... next thing she knew the entire Romney family showed up at the hospital and even through Ann had spent days cooking all this marvelous food and deserts, everyone ate Christmas dinner out of vending machines waiting for the baby to be born.

I know the convention wanted Ann Romney to prove the GOP is not anti-woman last night, but I really think the speech she is giving this breakfast is much better than her speech last night, much more about why Mitt SHOULD be elected in her breakfast speech.... and even her delivery at this breakfast is not as "giggly" .... I hope I am not the only person watching this....... anyway, I liked her speech last night, it was good, this breakfast speech is much, much, much more powerful!

People were told to leave Plaquemas Parish, and now they're stuck.   :shrug:

Seems like Jindal has things under control so far.  People and pets being rescued, no riots.  I miss looter guy.

The guy with the thing full of beer?

6:33 -- Will NBC Violate Its 'Whites Only' Policy And Air Condi's Speech Tonight

The closest NBC News came to airing a speech by someone who wasn't white last night was when NBC's Chief White House Correspondent, Chuck Todd, walked around the hall and accused the GOP of strategically seating minority attendees for camera placement.

Other than that, every time a non-white speaker -- even Artur Davis! -- came on, they would cut away.

Wonder if Condi makes the cut tonight?

5:50 -- After Asking If GOP Convention's Appropriate During Hurricane, Blitzer Assures Us Campaigning-Obama's 'On Top Of It'

Today a life was lost due to Hurricane Isaac. Today President Obama broke a long-held precedent of not campaigning during the opposition's convention and politicked in a swing state. In other words: Instead of being at his post during Isaac, Obama gave partisan speeches.

 Last night during the convention, CNN's Wolf Blitzer and John Berman kept wondering if it was appropriate for the GOP to hold the convention during the hurricane. This was a Narrative they pushed all night long. Not once, though, did they bring up the fact that Obama -- the guy actually in charge of FEMA -- also campaigned yesterday, you know, during a hurricane.

Today, a Republican guest on Blitzer's show floated the idea that maybe Obama shouldn't be campaigning today. Wolf's ready response, "He's on top of it."
