Rare opportunity for speakers at GOP convention

Washington (CNN) - For one week in August, the Republican Party will have a guaranteed place on prime time TV and, it hopes, voters' undivided attention.

For many watching, the Republican National Convention will provide the first glimpse of a political fight that has been brewing for more than a year, presenting the GOP with a new opportunity to argue that it's best prepared to take over after November's election.

    This is a "rare opportunity" for our family to turn off the television. We have made plans that do not include hateful
    rhethoric, lies and messages that make no sense. I'm looking forward to that week.

    Be sure his cow is dead before he starts eating it. Any body remember the movie the Blob? Was that made in New Jersey?

    It is another chance for Christie to embaress the state. I can't wait... for it to be over because he isn't Jersey. He's a bully.

    Obama is going to slam his head into a wall after he realizes you can't bring teleprompters into a speech. Romney/Ryan 2012- The fiscally responsible way forward!

    Nobody who speaks at this convention is worth of any part of government. Starting with the bully (two peas in a pod) from NJ!
    What's more interesting is who is NOT speaking!
