 The Bushes received a standing ovation at the RNC tonight.

George H.W. Bush (the Dad) and Barbara Bush just walked into the auditorium of the Republican National Convention and got a standing ovation.

They'll soon listen to their son, slated to beam in via satellite from the White House.

Next up, a first responder to the Minneapolis bridge collapse last year. They are currently showing video of her crawling into a partially submerged car.

    Typical Republican party DENIAL!!!! Republicans have had 8 yrs to prove themselves and have done absolutely nothing but run this country down.

    I applaud Bush senoir too. He was smart enough to listen to Colin Powell and not get bogged down in the Iraq quagmire. Unfortunatly this Bush listened to Cheney and has cost us over 4000 young lives and a trillion Dollars for nothing! And McBush has guaranteed more of the same.

    I just listen to wolf blitzer talking about McClain's experience as a POW, about being offered his release and turning it down-- what a brave thing to do, however later he signed a confession, but this little tidbit is never spoken about. Isn't it wonderful when the media can add to or leave out little things which may or may not change one's views of the man. Then the media has the nerve to advise everyone to learn all they can about a candiate in order to made a good decision as to whon to vote for.

    Don't mis-understand, I have utmost respect for what the man endured.
