The GOP Convention, Night One [UPDATED — Melania borrowed from Michelle]

(Paul Mirengoff) On the second day of the 2012 Republican national convention, the theme was “We Built It.” This represented both celebration of small businesses and a response to Obama’s offensive “you didn’t built that” remark chiding entrepreneurs. Show More Summary

Melania Goes Yard

(John Hinderaker) I watched the opening night of the Republican convention, starting out on Fox News.

From the Trump National Doral

(Scott Johnson) I’m taking a sort of working vacation at the Pritikn Health Resort & Spa in Miami. My theory was that the “working” part would come in Pritikin’s location at the Trump National Doral Miami; Pritikin leases part of the propety from the Trump National Doral. Show More Summary

The fire this time

(Scott Johnson) Prsident Obama’s brief statement on the murder of Baton Rouge police officers was formulaic and annoyed (video below). When it comes to lamenting crimes against law enforcement, which he has done so much to foment and abet, Obama doesn’t have his heart in it. Show More Summary

Police militarization after Baton Rouge
