    Bill Clinton did a great job at the Dem convention. Why didn't the GOP invite W to make a speech? He was their last two term President, right?

    Because we have ideas for the future. We dont need to lean on the leaders from the past

    We know those ideas.

    Let them die

    feed the poor and they will breed

    cut education

    voucher program

    strip mine America

    Something tells me it's not going to turn out well.

    that would be fine if anything that romney has supported were different from the things W did.

    Perhaps they did invite him and he declined. That would be in keeping with the profile he's pretty much kept since leaving office.

    For that matter, where WAS their last, two-term president during the convention. Was he even THERE?

    Obviously I did miss him stating that. That answers my question in my previous quote.

    WHY did he choose not to participate? Sure didn't look good for the Repubs.

    Romney and the GOP Congress advocate returning to the Past. And yet, the establishment GOP is running as fast as they can from their past. Inviting W to the convention to speak would put the last nail in Mitt's coffin...

    The Repubs have a problem. How do you advocate returning to the past when the past is your greatest enemy...:eusa_silenced:
