But their convention was spared, and by the time the delegates and their 2012 nominees pulled out of this city, the GOP had weathered more than Hurricane Isaac.Ostensibly, Republicans were on the offense during the coronation of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan as they used the tepid performance of the U.S. economy for the past four years as a rationale for reclaiming the White House and gaining ground in Congress and in statehouses.Video: Tom Bevan and Carl M. Cannon...

I thought this was going to be about Pennsylvania voter ID laws.

OR

I always get suspicious when a Republican says "Mission accomplished"

Sit down, they're jokes...sort of.

No, it's that there's a much, much smaller banner underneath that reads:
"...in 7 years"

wickabee, some are top secret, so can't tell you all of them.

so we got
last bush election
mccain and palan (sorry, but it is true)
stop obama care
stop raise on debt ceiling
take congress back
take senate back
stop tax increase
change the stimulus package
mess a bunch of stuff up (because they are idiots)
throw 2 more people in with little chance to win presidential race

that's all the unclassified stuff i can come up with

Ok, we were talking "American" missions, not Republican. Not saying anyone is wrong or right, just different reference points.
Yes, I realize the article is about Republican missions, but come on, anytime anyone says "Mission Accomplished" Bush is going to come up.

Did all these other missions have a "Mission Accomplished" banner draped across the bow of an aircraft carrier? I didn't think so.

If I'm not mistaken, McCain/Palin was the only other one that did...
