[Right Wing Watch’s Peter Montgomery is covering the RNC for Alternet with Adele M. Stan]
While each event had its own distinct character, there was unity aplenty in the overarching theme: Defeat Barack Obama, not simply because his policies stand in opposition to right-wing ideology, but because, speakers said, he is a very dangerous man.
