Sure he has some interesting and controversial speakers that are going to be there.

Among those are Tim Tebow, a very interesting choice and a man who has been making political inroads quietly. He's got Peter Thiel speaking a shrewd venture capitalist and a couple of the Benghazi survivors. but as I look at this list I don't see the pizzazz he has promised. I mean that's all he could get? :lamo This just looks like to me a bunch of nutters in a room together talking about how great their favorite nutter is! It is rumored that Trump tried to get a bunch more actors and celebrities but it seems that he pissed most of them off as he marketed himself to the far right base.

So is his promise of an exciting GOP Convention going to come to pass? Not according to himself. He likes the establishment being there GASP!!!!

“Look, I have great respect for the institution of the conventions. I mean to me, it’s very important. So we’re not going to change the wheel,” he said on Fox.

Tim Tebow is not speaking at the convention. What a surprise! Somebody made it up.

(Heard a sound bite from him on Fox. "News to me," he said.)

Why? Tebow seems like a good young man.

He has many good qualities. I like him. The NFL absolutely needed a man with his public image in the midst of all of these scandals. Meanwhile folks were mostly concentrating on how lackluster his play was. It is, but good lord, he's a great public spokesman for youth outreach, fitness, and uplift.

Tim Tebow was created by God to play football and serve the conservative cause (Tim 2:17). Ye shall not vex him, or else suffer His Wrath (Trump 2:34)

That's why I said it, he has no business at that Trump **** show.

Looks like he bowed out of the whole thing, so I take back what I said.

Forget what I said.

Looks like Mr. Drumpf has had to go down to the "C" list speakers for his convention. Nobody wants to be on the same stage with the fool.

I've watched every single Republican convention since 1980, even when I had little kids. I think next week I'll watch Showgirls over and over again. It will be better entertainment than this fiasco.

I would recommend tommy wesiau's The Room, if you are in the mood to watch a bad film.

Is it as bad as Showgirls? That managed to replace Ishtar as the worst movie I ever watched.

I'll check out The Room. I'm in the mood for some serious masochistic behavior next week. Although thinking about Trump as the GOP nominee should be good enough.

Tommy Wiseau's The Room is like the best worst movie ever.

Here is a video containing all of the screen time of Tommy wiseau from the room.
