I probably can't add much to all of the chattering about the Republican National Convention. Fellow blogger W.C. Varones likes the tone, as do I. He mentioned in an email that the GOP is keeping on the "we built that" theme very well. Even though Christie's speech didn't seem to score well on Twitter, it scored well enough, and set a serious tone for the campaign. Christie continues the theme of giving America a choice, that was set with the Paul Ryan selection. Ann Romney was great, and I say this as a guy watching a speech targeting women; so take that for what it's worth. Nikki Haley seemed start off weak, but she really landed some punches over the NLRB's handling of Boeing's decision to open a plant in South Carolina.
