The RNC has me confused and it's only the first day.

I watched some of the Republican National Convention on TV last night. I'm confused by the statement, take our country back.

Take our country back from what? That seems to be theme of the RNC. I wish they'd just be honest, they want to take the country back from the black man in the White House -- who obviously can control the weather to hear Rush Limbaugh tell it.

Rush Limbaugh had a typically unique take on the threat of Tropical Storm Isaac during his Monday show, appearing to suggest that the Obama administration had tampered with the forecasts of the storm to hurt the Republicans.
The tropical storm is threatening to turn into a hurricane just as it hits New Orleans, bringing up grim memories of Hurricane Katrina and making the GOP worry about how its convention in Tampa will be affected. Monday's proceedings already had to be canceled.
To hear Limbaugh tell it, though, that was the point. "With none of this am I alleging conspiracy," he said on Monday. It sure sounded like he was alleging one, though.
He went on to note that the Hurricane Center that monitors such things is "the regime," as he put it. "It's the government. It's Obama."
Limbaugh said that he grew suspicious because he noticed that the forecast for Isaac had shifted dramatically away from Florida soon after the Republicans canceled the first day of the convention.
"What could be better for the Democrats than the Republicans to cancel a day of this?" he said. "...I'm alleging no conspiracy. I'm just telling you, folks, when you put this all together in this timeline, I'm telling you, it's unbelievable!"
But that's not nuts, not at all.

Ann Romney, wife of GOP nominee Mitt, gave a speech about love. The love of a mother of five, the love of a woman who met a man in high school and fell for him. She basically said that Mitt got her home safely after a high school dance and that qualifies him to be the president.
And she talked about women having a harder time than men. I'm not buying that she understands hard times. Neither is Fox News's Juan Williams. Yes, you read that right, Fox News.

But Ann loves women!!

The GOP tries to convince us that they love America, right. And to love America that means you have to love everybody, right? Not so much

An attendee at the Republican National Convention in Tampa on Tuesday allegedly threw nuts at a black camerawoman working for CNN and said “This is how we feed animals” before being removed from the convention, a network official confirmed to TPM.
The CNN official declined to confirm specific details of the incident to TPM but generally confirmed an account posted on Twitter by former MSNBC and Current anchor David Shuster: “GOP attendee ejected for throwing nuts at African American CNN camera woman + saying ‘This is how we feed animals.’”
It is not clear whether the alleged culprit was a delegate or attending the convention in some other capacity.
Ann and New Jersey governor Chris Christie flaunted the fact that their parents and grandparents weren't born in America. Isn't this the same party that has bitched and moaned about President Barack Obama's birth for the last three and a half years? I call shenanigans!  But I don't want to see Romney's birth certificate, I want to see his tax returns and the balance of the account he has in those off-shore accounts.
(OAN: I worry about Christie's health. He is morbidly obese and if he doesn't lose some weight, he's going to need Obamacare.)

Singer Eric Benet said it best about the RNC on Twitter.

The RepublicanNationalConvention is in a 3way tie with a NASCAR race and a Klan rally for fewest black people events.

The funniest thing to me this election as opposed to 4 years ago is how Republicans seem to have totally forgotten about President Obama not being qualified to deal with the "average American" because he's of the "elite"... and they trot Romney out this go round. Where is Joe the Plumber? Did he think he was going to be trotted out this time around?

You are SO right! President Obama was elite 4 years ago.
