Conventions Part Two – Here come the Democrats

757 posts in this topic

I have seen two Democrats on FNC seem very assured and confident. Do they see internals or are they imagining that President Clinton's speech will be a magic pony?

 

They have had almost four years to practice looking 'confident'. That is all they have, appearance.

Kirsten Powers, I disagree with, but I don't think that she is a phony.

 

Bob Beckel is a phony, but he wasn't faking exhuberance.

If we are going to watch this freak show, I best double up on the blood pressure meds now.

 

And make sure @clearvision brings you a really nice glass of wine. And then try not to choke.

Reporters scolded by Democratic garbage police

Paul Bedard

September 3, 2012

 

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Democratic National Convention takes its mission to be green so seriously that reporters, delegates and others are being scolded for dumping their garbage in the wrong recycle bins.

 

Throughout Charlotte's Time Warner Cable Arena are special garbage cans marked "Compost," "Recycle," and "Landfill." Each come with signs showing what is to go into them, though most of the errant garbage tossers seem to be using the "Recycle" bins since they don't have special covers.

 

At many garbage stations there are "environmental consultants" to help people choose the right bin, or, if need be, reach in and move the garbage to the right one. For example, one of the consultants repeatedly stopped kitchen help at the trash cans to advise which cans to use: cardboard in "Recycle," food in "Compost," styrofoam cups in "Landfill."

Cherokee People, Cherokee Tribe: Elizabeth Warren Can’t Hide Her Lies

 

Posted on | September 4, 2012 | 0 Comments and 0 Reactions

 

Princess Fauxcohantas, the alleged 1/64th Native American, will give a major speech at the Democrat National Convention in North Carolina, ancestral homeland of the Cherokee to whom she implausibly claims kinship. Heap big trouble, Elizabeth Warren:

Elizabeth Warren can’t escape her Cherokee heritage controversy even at this gathering of loyal Democrats, as a contingent of skeptical American Indian delegates — including the great-grandson of Geronimo — are inviting Warren to a meeting tomorrow to explain her ancestry claims.

“I think she owes us that, she owes the Native American community here at least that,” said Scissors-32x32.png

The Democrats Going To Charlotte

 

Bill Clinton Will Speak To What Might As Well Be A Different Party

 

By: Repair_Man_Jack (Diary) | September 4th at 12:00 PM

There is a list of Democrats who will be present and speaking this week at the DNC in Charlotte, NC. There is another list of Democrats who have politely declined to speak at this year’s DNC. Eva Longoria will speak; Hillary Rodham Clinton will sail the antipodes on “previous business engagements.” This cycle’s DNC will truly feature a new and different Democratic Party.

The Republican Party lost the White House to a vastly different Democratic Party in 1992 than the one it lost to in 2008. The Democratic Party of 1992 represented an effort by the Democrats to communicate with poorer families, living in what are termed “working class neighborhoods.” The modern Democratic Party views these people as a legacy population that the state will just have to support. The difference Scissors-32x32.png read more

The name Barney Frank comes to mind.

 

As a matter of fact... a number the DEM attendees could fit the bill.

The Democrats’ Platform, Quiet About the Budget

Jim Geraghty

 

Looking over the Democratic Party’s 2012 platform, I count 15 references to “budget.” Almost all of them are references to the budget passed by House Republicans or boasts of spending more money.

 

The first use of the word “budget” is thus: “The Republican budget plan would end Medicare as we know it.” Hey, look, it’s PolitiFact’s Lie of the Year for 2011!

 

Then we read about the GOP’s plan to “balance the budget on the backs of the middle class”; their “lopsided budget”; the accusation that “Republicans in Congress have introduced a budget that would gut rural economic programs.” “We reject the Republican budget plan.”

 

Then we see a reference to “pay-as-you-go budget rules” — this would be the same pay-as-you-go budget rules that have been waived at least 26 times between 2007 and 2010.

President Obama has one job to save - his own - as Democratic National Convention kicks into gear

 

Most people about to get fired don’t get the chance to talk their way out of it. President Obama tries to do that in Charlotte on Thursday night, then all the way to November 6, trying not to become the first incumbent to lose his job since George H.W. Bush.

The President becomes one more American this week, officially and in front of the country, trying to keep his job.

He knows he is talking to so many who don’t have jobs and can’t find jobs. Or have taken lesser jobs, sometimes two, to somehow make ends meet. Still: In Foreclosure America, Barack Obama tries to persuade those who voted for him last time and those he needs to vote for him this time why he shouldn’t get kicked out of the White House.

Perdue: Women Will Go ‘Back To The Days Of Coat Hangers

 

CHARLOTTE (CBS Charlotte)North Carolina’s governor believes that “you’ll see women die” if a Mitt Romney administration bans abortions nationwide.

Speaking to MSNBC, Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue says women will take extreme measures to perform an abortion if Roe v. Wade is overturned.

 

“They are going to go somewhere to end the pregnancy if they can afford it,” Perdue told MSNBC. “But for poor women, you’ll be back to the days of coat hangers in the bathtub and you’ll see women die.”

Gov. Perdue later added that the “end game” for Romney is to appoint conservative judges across the country to get Roe v. Wade overturned.

“That’s right out of Karl Rove’s playbook,” she told MSNBC. “People have got to stand up.”Scissors-32x32.png

This was a pop-up ad on the Smith and Wesson Forum this morning.

 

I usually don't deal with pop-up ads but this one caught my attention enough for me to explore the candidates a little more.
