The dust is clearing from the first 2012 presidential debate, which saw Romney playdough himself into a new champion for the poor. In the meantime, President Obama was clearly still reeling from this season’s finale of Breaking Bad.
With the conventions behind us now, it’s safe to say the GOP misfired in terms of reintroducing Mitt and cementing their stances as credible (I’m looking at you, Paul Ryan), while the Democrats unleashed their inner Rowdy Roddy Piper.
Night two of the Democratic National Convention wrapped yesterday with an incredible speech by former President Bill Clinton that will likely have people talking for some time to come. Think of it as the Democratic equivalent to the Eastwood speech… but informative, intelligent and really fucking great. But first, let’s take a look back at night one!
The confetti has fallen, the last patriotic song has played, the candidates have left the stage and that ends the 2012 Republican National Convention. This was a potential major turning point for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney as he reintroduced himself into the public spotlight. But before we discuss if that worked or not, join us for a crash course through the convention’s first two nights.
