Live Blog: Republican National Convention, August 28, 2012
Welcome to our first-ever live blogging event!
For the next three nights, I’ll live blog the Republican National Convention from 9pm – 11pm eastern. I’ll do the same next week for the Democratic National Convention.
Please leave any thoughts in the comments section below – I’ll use a few of them for the main thread.
Finally, there’s no need to refresh your browser; new updates will automatically appear. Here we go!
Mayor Mia Long was simply incredible. Her compassion and sincerity came out in her speech and it left my longing for more. This will NOT be the last time we hear the name Mia Long. RNC Chairman Priebus almost put me to sleep.
just curious: given that this is essentially an info-mercial and not too much of a decision-making process for the GOP, whom is expected to be won over with a modern convention?
Yeah, the shaking hands with the American Dream was a bit over the top for Santorum but it was refreshing to see a good speaker. Also, I think you mean Mia Love, not Mia Long.
Ann Romney’s “storybook marriage” versus “real marriage” line was incredibly powerful. It told the audience that, despite the couple’s wealth, they have dealt with some of the same troubles and fears that everyday Americans deal with. She’s making an amazing connection with the audience.
