Schneider: Romney rolls out a classic

ST. PAUL (CNN) - Romney opens by bashing the East - he was the governor of Massachusetts! You can’t get much more East than that. This is an ancient conservative bias, dating back to the Goldwater era.

You have to acknowledge that Romney knows liberals; he was governor of probably the most liberal state in the country. Of course, listening to his speech, you’d never guess that George Bush – probably the most conservative president in history - has been president for the past eight years.

    Tried to send this about speech

    Good evening,

    I had a long text about differences but it is not necessary since this speech is for a base and at the base there is not much differences.

    You know, today we had a beautiful event that took place in some rural area. People finally had an outside jewish wedding and the family invited the community to attend the family wedding for people to get to create good memories of living together side by side. It was a very special Rural event to witness in these times of real change!

    Gdub is not a conservative.
    CNN is showing its true colors
    right now, you didn't bash the
    libs at there convention
    why are you doing it to the
    republicans? The libs where
    saying nasty stuff about the
    republicans, and when we do it
    back, we are the bad guys?
    give me a break, I'm going back to fox
    news!!!! Now you guys only have 15
    people who come to you guys for news.

    Dear CNN, I would like to say one thing you have forgotten to mention in your reporting about Mrs. Palin. She is very different than Hilary Clinton in about every way you can think off, and all of you failed to do so . Why is that. I think that is very bad reporting. Her speech was very good. But ,you failed to talk about the sensitive issues, and so did she. And I know that a lot of women wil not care for her agenda. And the animal rights she bflieves in also. So please a woman yes, but a man in many ways . so Please try to at least give a fair accessment of the subject please. Thank you kindly.

    I am a student from theold school. A woman can fell anything in life accept falling to be a good mother to her children.Sarah palin falled to educate her daugther about sex. If she is that good to lead a country why she did not educate her daugther about sex.What she try to teach America , it is okay for parents to have their daugther pregnant at 17 year old. I she is a good mother why she did fell to watch out for her daugther.Every in life begins at home ,a female who cannot role her family cannot lead a country. A country is like a family more fragile.a good mother always watch for the well being of her family Sarah is not one of them. Sarah better live America alone. American need a female who can lead with morale value ,not a supporter of teenage pregnancy.

    So this is what it comes down to,the Republicans have their "Attack Dog".
    In a time when when it's at very least a tough task to get the citizens of this country to go to the polls,here we go again.
    So, let's polarize Americans again.
    Let's fall again into the abyss of name calling,lie spinning and the tasteless attack.
    This split between the citizens of this country widens further.
    We all honor Mr. McCain for his service and bravery to our country, and admire Mrs. Palin for putting herself out there in the face of what must of been a hurricane from the talking heads. (yes, that's you CNN)
    But, I ask that we let cooler heads prevail, and let's make this election about the issues of the time.
    I pray for time when we won't need "attack dogs",that we will evolve into a thoughtful,civil society.
    I know,...fat chance.
