A bunch of Republicans chanting in spanish, "Opportunity zones", his biography film that was ONLY Sept 11 -Sept 20 and "whatever it takes" MINUS catching Osama.

That's what kills me. Two nights in a row protesters were able to get in. If these guys cant protect their convention from free speech how are they going to defend America from terrorism?
His near tear, however, will be drowned out by the following statement from Mr. Kerry who figuratively beached his swift boat and began hunting last night:
This president is quite proud of the fact that not even failure is going to force him to change course. I will tell you what will force him to change course, you are going to force him to change course. We are going to change course this November."
Shhhhhhhhh. Be vewy vewy quiet wewre hunting neandercons.
"I will not have my commitment to defend this country questioned by those who refused to serve when they could have and by those who have misled the nation into Iraq."

> can’t protect their convention from free speech
It has nothing to do with free speech.
If I am in a movie theatre and someone acts up (not referring to the queer group Act Up), that person can be removed from the theatre.
If a person is singing or speaking or playing a piano in concert, the audience is supposed to be quite and respectful and clap when applause is warranted or when it is ok to applause. The last thing you want is some idiot screaming from the audience during Rachmoninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2 in C Minor.
If my preacher was preaching and some nut came in the auditorium and started screaming, several folks would grab that person and escort them out of the room.
There is a time and place for everything. If someone yelled at the Demo Convention something like “Kerry is baby killer,” you’d have no problems having that guy removed. You guys are so full of hatred you cannot think straight. And, you are hypocrites too!

According to USA Today today 4 people were arrested at the Democratic Convention & 1800 at the Republican Convention. I guess when you are number 2 you have to try harder.

Apparently you completely missed the point: if they couldn't keep protesters out of the hall at a time when the man who has more security than almost anyone in the world was appearing, how can they be trusted with national security?

The difference is that radical homosexuals, poverty pimps, dope smokers, anarchists, communists, leftists, and other liberal protest groups are much more prone to break the law. The Dems have a monopoly on the derelicts of America.

Ok - I understand and would have gotten that if you left out the "free speech" sentence.
When someone has a valid badge or pass, what can you do? It's not like the person had a gun or was strapped with explosives.

Poor Paul, making an excuse for lax security.
