We Don't Deserve Better on Romney's Terms, We Deserve Someone For the People

Occupy Tampa Protest Signs
Much of the Republican National Convention was a blatant joke regarding politics, human rights and open debate. There were so many cases regarding racism, self indulgent and superiority complex leaving to believe that the GOP is indeed only composed for Caucasian individuals and self hating minorities as Uncle Ruckus from the Boondocks who hate everything that is not white. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan launched their general election campaign "We deserve better." as they tour the key swing states as the GOP presidential and vice-presidential nominee.

Romney's acceptance speech of the nomination was a 37 minutes delivery that blamed President Obama for four years of "disappointment and division". Not even mentioned that civil rights are moving forward, the White House is more involved in the communities as ever even with their program of Move It and health care is slowly getting universal and America it is leaving behind the horrors of the Bush era but yet. Even so, Romney had used only his business experience as his only letter of representation to the people as well his family connection to quote that he is capable to manage a country, but a country is not a corporation where you can send all your liquids assets to tax heavens in order to avoid paying federal taxes.

Since the convention started the Republicans attacked and mocked his experience to Jimmy Carter and him being a one time president, yet it's quite funny and real that Obama's and Carter rating of approval and humanitarian work it's widely recognized even to the point that Carter and Obama are Nobel price laureates. 

"Hope and change had a powerful appeal," Romney said "But tonight I'd ask a simple question: If you felt that excitement when yu voted for Barack Obama, shouldn't you feel that way now that he's President Obama? You know there's something wrong with the kind of job he's done as president when the best feeling you had, was the day you voted for him." If there is an answer that would be "Yes, there are people who still feel excited and those are the people from the Democratic party, the voters who gave their trust to a man who is a people person and not a businessman who goes beyond the interest of a few ones."

The convention turned more into a freakish side almost as a revival ministries, where people gave their testimonies such as Pat Oparowski whose son befriended Romney before he died at age of 14. Grant Bennet who took over as a Mormon Stake but then as it became popular thanks to the use of Twitter and other social media who can use the photo exchange, the bizarre but obviously (probably not) scripted appearance of Clint Eastwood which the actor buried himself into a strange use of verbatim and words.

Obama will visit swing states Colorado, Iowa, Ohio and Virginia during the Labor Day weekend and last Charlotte, NC for the DNC which starts on Tuesday. Melanie Roussel the DNC spokeswoman said that the convention "will emphasize that Obama is committed to strengthening the economy from the middle class out while Republicans believe in a top down economy." Which is the way should be, a man that represent the 99% not a 1%.
