Party leaders stay focused on appealing to their rabid Christian evangelical base, at the expense of the majority of the public.

Nobody EVER claimed that these conservatives had the welfare of anyone other than themselves in mind!

Neither the republicans or the democrats truly have a clue about what regular people think or want, they don't live in the world we do, they should have to go by all the same rules and laws they make for us perhaps then they would get the message.

Noted. Yes, what a wonderful display of their hate and greed. Their numbers are declining. Even here in AZ, the latest figures I've seen have the Dems, Reps & Ind's each at about 1/3.

The Republican party has gotten so out of touch with the general population of America, it's a wonder they get any seats in government, despite rigging voting rules.

I am encouraged by 1/3 support for independent candidates in Arizona: perhaps this is hope for the future.

Really, alternet to explain Republicans? What the hell do you expect from them? Case in point, if "50% of millennials identifying as independent, 27% Democrat, while Republicans only draw 17% support" does that indicate that "A majority of Americans now favor liberal policies, whether it's same-sex marriage, women's reproductive rights, immigration reform, sensible gun control laws, tax code reform, the minimum wage, the role of government, and healthcare."? Not by my math.

John, that was my question as well. CJ Werleman (sp?) has his freedom of speech to share his personal opinion. I believe Obama recently got it right when he said that the democrats need to be very worried about the November election. That says it all. Over the past six years the liberals have created nothing but complete chaos for the middle class (my personal opinion). Bottom line: Americans want jobs. They don't want massive food stamp support and welfare checks. They want to work...because they are Americans and they are tired of being a burden on society. Obama killed the jobs early in 2009 and now his legacy O'Care law targets the middle class.

Americans sent a message to Obama in November 2010 when they voted to replace the spending democrats with no more spending republicans. They created gridlock. I predict another tsunami vote in November to seal the deal to shut Obama completely down. It is never good when a country is without strong leadership. Enough is enough.

Sent you a green star, John.

Gimme that old time religion; pass the ammunition and have another drink of the tangy Koolaid.
Every time I see one of these conventions it reminds me of an old time tent revival meeting. LOL not! Those things were just downright scary if you really were objective about the goings on and had an observant eye.

I personally think the American people are tired of this duopoly of both Parties that have gotten us into this mess and seem to keep us here. I don't think either has clean hands but the Republicans have allowed themselves to be pulled into the extremist camp and as they say.......give em' enough rope.

Well from Michele Bachmann claiming the Tea Party is an intellectual movement, when most people compare it to a bowel movement, to Sarah Palin showing a complete misunderstanding of Dr Seuss. As Ms Palin delivered what as singularly embarrassing a public address as any allegedly sentient organism ever has delivered. It was a disgrace to politics, to rhetoric, to the English language, and to Dr Seuss. As she still does not get the moral as she is the representation of the infantilization of American politics, telling toxic fairy tales to audiences drunk on fear, and hate and nonsense.Wih no respect for any standards but her own. She is in a perpetual tantrum, railing against her betters, which is practically everyone, and volunteering for the role of spokesperson to the country's reckless vandalism of a political Id. It was the behavior of a malignant child to an audience of malignant children. So a very typical GOP conference - an endless source of comedic material for comedians for the rest of the year.

Vote all Republicans and Tea Baggers out of office in every state at every opportunity. Disgusting and despicable people's convension.

It was actually an important convention. Obama's popularity rating is in the toilet. Obama stated recently that the democrats need to be very worried about the election in November and I can count on one hand with fingers left over anything positive he has brought to our country over the past six years. This is one of those moments when he actually got something right.

I doubt that any of you even watched the CPAC convention. I believe you read your left wing articles and are speaking from a position of not really knowing what was said. However, that is unimportant to me. What is important to me is that the vast majority of Americans have had enough of Obama. He never should've been elected in 2008. He had a thin resume and as senator voted "present" over 100 times on bills he should've addressed one way or the other. Obama was never presidential material....and neither was Jimmy Carter.

The American people will vote in November. They will let us know if they are better off today than they were in 2008.
