Republican National Convention: The race to the bottom
Watch live video here and join the conversation as we live blog the 2012 GOP convention.

6:42 PM PT: Mike Huckabee picks up where Tim Pawlenty left off, accusing President Obama of socialism (at least in so many words).

6:43 PM PT:
Listening to Huck's and TPAW's one liners, maybe next RNC should be booked at Chuckles or Laff Factory #gop12 #rnc12

6:44 PM PT: Each and every one of these clowns has forgotten who wrecked our economy in the first place.

6:46 PM PT: Huckabee salutes Ann Romney's speech, something that Chris Christie failed to do.

6:47 PM PT: Don't forget: There is not a single persuadable voter watching this speech. The broadcast networks are not covering it—only partisans are tuning in.

6:47 PM PT:
Odd to keep complaining about how Barack Obama doesn't have private-sector experience on a night when Paul Ryan is giving the main speech

6:50 PM PT: Huckabee accusing "self-professed evangelical" Barack Obama of attacking Catholics. And then:

I care far less as to where Mitt Romney takes his family to church than I do about where he takes this country.

6:52 PM PT: Huckabee attacks Joe Biden for not giving as much to charity as Mitt Romney. Yeah, real fair comparison—Biden isn't a pauper, but he's one of the least wealthy politicians at his level. Romney, on the other hand, is one of the wealthiest.

6:57 PM PT (Kaili Joy Gray): New thread here.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
