  1. If you have the stomach for it, there will be quite a spectacle on display in Tampa Bay starting this week. The Republican Party, fresh off a week-long public debate about whether rape is real or just a tricky dodge women use to obtain a legal abortion, will coronate Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan as their standard-bearers for the 2012 presidential election. The lies will be thick, the gibberish will be constant, and if history is any guide, the hats will be simply preposterous.

    Before the echo from the explosion of nonsense in Tampa Bay fades, the Democrats will put on their own show in Charlotte to renominate President Obama and Vice President Biden. I wouldn’t spend a lot of time looking for the Hope/Change theme this time around, however. In its place will be a high-test theatrical presentation of this year’s Democratic campaign theme: “We’re Not The Other Guys!”

    Part of our job at Truthout is to wade through crap like this for you, but make no mistake: coverage is not endorsement. Both parties are snuggled deep in the pockets of very rich people you will never meet. The war in Afghanistan grinds on. Privacy and civil liberties are treated like bad jokes best forgotten. Half-measures and semi-solutions to the problems that face every American are all we see from these people, and that’s on a good day. No matter who wins in November, those problems will still be here, growing and festering and threatening to subsume us.

  2. WOW! You sure have it in for the Republican party. Do you honestly believe that Obama whose best skill is “rhetoric” and nothing more will do more for the country than Romney? Just look at all the things that Obama has promised and failed to deliver. This post is close to “hateful” which is supposed to be the antithesis of Liberalism. Sorry to be so blunt but that is the way I see it. Love, Wally

  3. If people other than Americans were voting- or maybe I mean people like me!, I don’t think they’d vote for either candidate. I say bring back Adlai Stevenson – the best candidate who never got there!!!!

    • There are several third party candidates. However, the US electoral system is rigged against third parties (unless you are Ross Perot and have lots of money).

  4. Around these parts a “wally” is defined as ‘a stupid, inept or despised person, generally a fool.’ I’m amazed anyone would admit to that, but I suppose it takes all sorts…
