    Wow, is this really the best the GOP can do? Pretty pathetic. So much for focusing on the real issues. Just makes them look absolutely petty.

    A black man going before the RNC making a fool of himself? I put this idiot on the same level as the Tea Party. Just wait, they would lynch you just as fast you idiot. You are a disgrace.

    I think it is funny, The sad thing is, this guy could probably do a better job with our economy than the real clown we have in the White House

    Is this what the Republicans and Baggers have to resort to? Reggie Brown, there isn't enough money in the world that could have made you sell your soul like this. Please find whatever dignity you have and pull yourself out of this ridiculous mess.

    I have no respect for a party that shows no respect to office they seek. You call the president a liar at a State of the Union address (Joe Wilson)....you refuse to meet halfway at the bargain table (party of no)...you hold the nation hostage (no investment in infrastructure, which could spark the economy)...you sow seeds of fear instead of facts (medicare and medicaid are needed most by those laid off or in transition to jobs)... all in the name of getting the very position you disagree with.

    Mocking the position of president achieves a new all time low for the integrity of your political party. GOP has a big surprise coming in 2012 if they think they can scare the nation and blind us from their ties to corrupt corporate executives!

    hilarious! the looney tunes left need to get a life and get real....had this been an event at the DNC, instead of the RNC, you would all be whooping it up and laughing your tails off, just like these people did!

    Thats not the whole story, find out what REALLY happened by going to a real news source. This one is just way to slanted to the left, but it is fun to read how story's are twisted for your on purpose.

    The republicans invited this guy? and they think he looks like Obama? I guess they also l think all black people look alike. That why we have to do more and get involved and change our government just like people are doing all over the world. They make us all look bad as Americans with their nonsense.

    what's even funnier is that the Obama impersonator could probably STILL beat anyone of the GOPers at the polls. Just sad that all these POTUS wannabes have is to attack Obama when he's not there to defend himself, yet still have no answers on what they would have done instead.

    I just read another article that this guy, hired by the GOP at this event also started to take 'potshots" at some of the Republicans like T-Paw for not going after Romney in person and they shut his mike off. If this is the case then I guess the GOP sense of humor can only go so far. 🙂
