All Important Ohio First Stop for Romney

Do you ever wonder who gets up at the crack of dawn on Saturday morning of Labor Day weekend?  Apparently, Romney supporters do. This weekend,  enthusiastic Romney supporters came to stand in line as early as 7 am, arriving hours before his post convention mid-morning rally at Cincinnati’s notable, historic Union Terminal.   Whether or not Romney earned your vote in the March primary, he is now the GOP nominee. Romney’s opener, “This is a great state“.

Eastwood “Makes Our Day” at GOP Convention

 “Mystery Speaker”, Hollywood Actor and Director, Clint Eastwood, spoke tonight at the RNC Convention in Tampa, lending a rare Hollywood presence to the GOP.  The 82 year-old Eastwood’s speech contained some good lines and elicited some laughter, but was punctuated by uncomfortable moments throughout.  While his speech was well-received by convention attendees, it seemed unscripted, awkward, and halting at times.  The applause line of the night was, “We own this country…Politicans are employees of ours.”  And referring to President Obama, “When somebody does not do the job, we got to let them go.”  And of course, the big wrap-up, “Go ahead,…make my day.”  But the question is, what was the empty chair about….?

What Lessons are the Olympics Teaching?

Apparently, the Fédération Internationale de Gymnastique (FIG), which governs competitive gymnastics, does not think so.  Until the Jordan Wieber “controversy” I was unaware of the rules governing gymnastics competition.  They almost read like an excerpt from The Communist Manifesto.
