    Mormon's think Native American's are of Jewish descendants, they wear holy underwear and didn't let black people in their cult until 1978. I'll pass on Romney. No kool-aid drinking, cult worshipper's as my President. No thanks.

    It doesn't make me a bigot. I have Mormon friends, I just think their logic is jaded.

    What I find a little creepy is the convention logo. It's a riff off of the Obama logo. He may be the nominee, but it's not about him. It's about the Democratic Party and the country. It's what the President can do for the people. It's not about President Obama.

    Here's the logo (I think the middle silhouette is the President)

    I'm not a bigot because I don't want a Mormon in the White House. Does that make all the Tea Party people bigots because they don't want a Mormon in the White House, either?

    Clinton was a great President. His speech praising Obama will just be the cherry on top of another term for Obama.

    The Republicans would have put George W Bush out there but......oh yeah

    It's interesting to think that Republicans say "quit blaming Bush" (which the amount of they are exaggerating), but they themselves didn't even bother to invite him to the convention.

    They totally could've spun things to make him out to be a valuable asset.

    Even they know that he was a horrible president whose policies (and wars) put us in the situation we're in. As much as they want to try to blame Obama for it (either by saying his "policies" have ruined America...which they haven't, especially since he hasn't done much, or by saying that things that were not his own doing was his doing), they know what the results would be if they invited or highlighted Bush.

    Since PapaG wants to talk sand castles and their relationship to Presidential candidates, let's keep this on topic:

    http://legalplanet.wordpress.com/201...as-production/


    Is Romney Building Sand Castles Based on Fantasy Oil and Gas Production?
    August 24, 2012
    tags: 2012, oil and gas development, Romney energy plan
    by Dan Farber

    I posted yesterday about Romney’s energy plan, which makes some remarkable claims about future energy production and its economic benefits. If you look at the sources cited by the campaign to support this plan, the campaign seems to rely heavily on Citigroup report called Energy 2020: North America, the New Middle East?. A number of their other sources are basically just touting the Citigroup report.

    I’m planning to dig into Citigroup’s economic projections more, but there also seem to be real questions about their energy projections. At least, some very credible questions have been raised about their optimistic projections for future energy production. In fact, the report raised some questions even in business circles:

    “Whether the report proves prescient or just another starry-eyed fantasy remains to be seen.”

    Wall Street Journal

    The Oil Drum carefully reviews Citigroup’s projections about future production. The conclusion is that they’re wildly optimistic. Here’s an example:

    Source: North Dakota Oil and Gas Agency

    Citigroup uses the light blue “possible” line. Basing your planning what you think may be possible is a bit risky, and I have to wonder if they make their own investment decisions and advise their clients on a similarly optimistic basis.

    Another key point to see about this graph is that each line shows a decline after the initial surge. This is really a key point. As the Oil Drum p0ints out, the “declining production from existing and future wells that appears to be neglected in the Citigroup study.”

    The reason is fairly simple:

    Those plays which will yield rapidly in generating high initial well production will, in turn, be the first that decline significantly and need replacement. Yet replacement will, over time, have to be in poorer parts of the formation, requiring that multiple wells replace the initial producer, and so bounds on production will be reached, likely before the end of the decade. Citigroup anticipates that the risks in development of the shale plays, whether in Texas or California, come as much from an inability to transport the oil generated and from environmental policy; they see few geological risks – which is a pity, since it is the geology that will control production and its decline, and the ultimate profitability of these ventures.

    Jeb Bush was one of the speakers at the convention.

    Republican presidents seem to honor the long standing tradition that a former president doesn't criticize the current one.

    So that means he doesn't even make an appearance? Maybe even make a little speech endorsing Romney? Hmmm.

    We both know why he wasn't there. He practically lost McCain the election.

    I don't think so.

    GHW Bush didn't speak at W's 2000 convention either.

    Reagan spoke at the 1988 convention, but there was no sitting opposing party president at that time.

    Papa Bush didn't speak at the 2000 convention because he hadn't been president for 8 years. Bush was just president 4 years ago.

    Jeb Bush isn't the former president that served two terms and the most recent past president. I don't know why you keep going to this.

    Condoleeza Rice is a great person for the Republicans and Romney to throw out there being an African-American woman. Appeals to two demographics that they're desperately trying to tap into.

    People are carefully chosen to be at these things. Like you mentioned, the Republicans went to Reagan in 1988 because Republicans go apeshit over Reagan. It's pretty much the same reason why Bill Clinton is always at these things.

    And it's why people like George W Bush and Dick Chaney aren't there. It's probably not smart to invite a guy that had that kind of approval rating he did.

    Obama was able to paint McCain as another Bush and it's a big reason why he won big in 2008. Romney wants no part of that.
