SOUND OFF: Mitt Romney and the Republican Convention

What did you think of Romney's speech and the convention? Will you vote for him in November?

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney accepted the Republican nomination for President of the United States on Thursday night.

Romney gave a speech that included a more personal view of his life as well as focused on adding jobs, criticizing President Obama’s policies, repealing Obamacare and promoting his business background.

Romney did not discuss his experience as governor of Massachusetts during the nationally-televised speech.

We want to hear from you – what did you think of the former governor’s speech? What did you think of the convention? Were you swayed in either direction after watching the proceedings from Tampa? From his experience as governor of the commonwealth, are you more apt or less apt to vote for Romney?

Let us know in the comment section below.

I think "extreme" and "draconian" are not good characterizations of someone who is "pro-life" - unless, of course, the same description is used for someone who is "pro-choice." It seems both are advocating positions that are not really anywhere in the middle (at least under the present societal construct). Some pro-lifers argue against abortion in ALL cases and I suspect many would label that position 'extreme.' The law presently allows for abortions to take place at ANY time of the pregnancy, even up to the moment of birth. I suspect many would also label that law 'extreme.' (if they knew about it).

My figures @Gretchen Robinson are not skewed. People are unemployed and need jobs. Google the U.S. Debt Clock.

oh but your figures are skewed. I agree that people are unemployed and need jobs. When then when the Republicans came into the House in 2010 promising jobs, did they only talk about debt and didn't take ANY action to create or support the creation of jobs??? They are too busy hating Obama and putting 90% of their attention and energy toward getting a Republican in the White House--the well being of the nation and its people is the last and least of their concerns!

.....so the dozens of pieces of legislation, passed by the house since the 2010 elections, most of which are focused on job creation, dealing with the debt and health care are sitting in limbo because Harry Reid will not bring them to the Senate floor for a vote. Reid is afraid that a number of these bills have bi-partisan support and he could not allow the embarrassment of having any of them pass. The other reason he sits on them is that some of these bills would also put democrats on record as supporting the governments trampling of the the first amendmant rights for example. They hide behind executive fiat and now will need to stand up and be counted. Everything the liberasl due, in my opinion, seem to be based on political motivation and not what is the right thing to do.
