One development I do not like

I know this has slowly been creeping into both party conventions, but why is Mitt Romney in the hall listening to Cristie last night?
Sitting there waiting for someone to praise you is a little like the old Soviet Central Committee Meetings. Bad optics considering it is one of the GOP's most used bullshit talking points.

The big difference being the guy who is even bigger than Khrushchev hardly ever praised the guy who was filling the role of Stalin -- all while mentioning himself repeatedly -- not a very good speech, but Chris Christie 2016! -- I'm sure 2012's nominee REALLY enjoyed that -- back in the old Stalinist Soviet days that would have earned a show trial and an airbrushing.

Oh and then there's this:

“We have become paralyzed by our desire to be loved,” said Christie. “Tonight we’re gonna choose respect over love.”

CChrist" “Tonight we’re gonna choose respect over love.”

Romney/Ryan 2012: "We're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers" Now fuck off.

Translation "It is better to be feared than to be loved"
That phrase seems familiar.
