DNC Final Day: Hope, Promises and Deceptions


Pages: 1 2

As the National Debt hit $16 trillion on the first day of the convention, it was appropriate that the final day would mark the one year anniversary of the collapse of the Obama funded Solyndra. That aside, this was clearly the strongest night of the DNC convention, featuring powerful speeches made by the President and Vice President. But while many of the words sounded nice, there was little substance behind them, just more of the same rhetoric that permeated throughout the previous two nights – plus at least a couple new offenses.

Congressman John Lewis of Georgia was once a leader in the American civil rights movement. He fought to end segregation, which he was a victim of. However, that does not give him the right to use the issue of race to make a phony political argument. A large part of his speech dealt with what he and a number of Democrats refer to as “voter suppression laws.” He’s upset because some states are forcing voters to show an I.D. before they vote. He wants people to believe that Republican leaders are racist for wanting to do away with voter fraud.

Leading the Pledge of Allegiance was former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, a beautiful lady who was shot by a deranged individual looking to take her life. She was escorted to the stage by DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz. It was a way for Wasserman Schultz to appear before the crowd without her having the opportunity to make any damaging remarks, something she’s become accustomed to. Giffords’ touching convention moment was ruined by what seemed to be another Democrat attack on religion.

Just one day after the DNC was chided for not mentioning the word “God” in its platform, Caroline Kennedy, daughter of late President John F. Kennedy, took a veiled shot at the Catholic Church, during her speech which focused on women’s rights. She stated, “As a Catholic woman, I take reproductive health seriously, and today, it is under attack.” She then proceeded to complain about how a number of states are restricting women’s access to reproductive health care, i.e. abortions, one of the main things the Church shuns.

Ex-Governor of Florida Charlie Crist gave a speech with virtually no substance whatsoever. But the fact that he was speaking at the Democratic convention was a story in itself, as he has been a Republican for the majority of his life. If the GOP despised him for recently switching his party registration to run against Marco Rubio for U.S. Senate, this act put the nail in the coffin.

Former presidential contender, Senator John Kerry, gave a strong speech – considered to be the best one of his life, albeit very negative. He attempted to scare the viewing audience by saying that Mitt Romney “has all these neocon advisors.” Along with these boogeymen who he says Romney will “rely on,” Kerry stressed that Romney has no foreign policy experience. But considering Obama has embraced the Muslim Brotherhood, has helped give Islamists control of Libya, and has acted weak with Iran, aside from some terrorist kills, just about anyone may arguably be better.

V.P. Joe Biden’s speech was also strong — at least it sounded strong. The theme of his talk was “Osama bin Laden is dead, and General Motors is alive,” two of the only positive things that President Obama could take credit for. The speech contained much class warfare, not unlike the rest of the convention. He said that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are “not for preserving Medicare.” Yet, under the Romney/Ryan plan, Medicare is unchanged for those 55 and older and is reformed for those under 55, allowing for the program to continue well into the future.

The Majority Whip Dick Durban introduced President Obama, as he had in the previous two DNC conventions. He gave a shout-out to the UAW, which had members seated in the crowd. This is the same UAW that caused the fall of the American auto industry and then benefited from the auto bailout. Durban, who authored the Dream Act, praised the President for bringing the kids of illegal immigrants “out of the shadows.” Though, he didn’t mention all the legal immigrants, who work very hard to become citizens and don’t have to live in the shadows.

    Neither of the presidential candidates can prevent the decline of America, but they both will slow the process by printing more money. Romney will print less because he will trim the cost of social programs, but increase some defense spending. Obama will keep the printing presses going 24/7 by cutting nothing; he has little concern for the national debt. Both candidates will not commit political suicide by raising payroll taxes.

      Congrats chowching , you have a functioning brain , you have dumfounded the deluded dolts here who are in denial of the FACT you have just exposed . The only real argument underlying the utter bullsheeet about family ,Israel and all other phony as hell – for the sake of the ignorant electorate -religious fanatics -and so called "patriots " IS – WHO GETS TAXED AND WHOSE PROGRAMS GET CUT -otherwise put WHOSE OX GETS GORED. Republicans as well as Democrats are well paid by their donors to protect their interests .

          save your phony patriotic bullsheet rogo-poo , it's " get the ethiopian out of the white house " which is first and foremost in the minds of you loons , everything else is secondary . It matters not if the ship sinks as long as there is a conservative at the helm . conservatives proved that by getting the nations credit rating knocked down a notch , and further indecisiveness is gonna happen again this time around for the debt ceiling to be raised . And THAT indecisiveness which can be smelled all the way to the European Union, will wreak havoc with any decision they must make , and if you're stupid enough to think that will not create another big recession , then you'd bette take your blinders off and get an education .

  • pierce

    I listened last night, and could not believe the utter garbage that came out of their mouths. The two orators that stood out as being the most hypocritical were Sen. John Kerry and VP Joe Biden. Kerry must have forgotten 2004 and his Viet Nam debacle, and Joe for his superlative, but false description of the past 4 years. GM used to be called General Motors, now called Government Motors because of the rescue. The new stock went public at about 35, went up a bit, and the last I knew was near 20, and Obama wants to sell the Governments position at a huge loss, that does not make sense, costing we the tax payers lots of money. And not much was said about Solyndra, another debacle, and they want to brag, about what, FAILURE, not a very good idea, as it was the Democrats that failed the American people. 4 more years of failure, I hope not, we deserve better.

    • davarino

      Well, he has to lay a foundation of failure before he can turn this thing around. I know what you mean pierce. I started watching it just so I could say I did it to be fair. But after a while the BS got so deep I was afraid my psyche would go tilt and I'd forget who I was, or not be able to do math, or think the Soviet Union was the good ol days.

    • mlcblog

      Kerry has not forgotten. He always had a very different version of what happened.

  • Juniper

    Stop giving Obama credit for Osama's killing. If Obama had his way Osama would still be alive today. He dithered for days before Clinton and Panetta had to force him out of his paralysis that lead to the elimination of the Islamist. And what good will come out of keeping GM alive when the company produces vehicles that no one wants to buy, is crippled with astronomical pension liability and whose workers are still the most unproductive in the auto industry? Sooner or later they'll need more bailing out. In a true communist style, Obama has made US public dependent on state, US is now the new USSR and conversely China is the new US. And we all know what happened to the Soviets, right?

    • davarino

      Yup, but I think your thinking about Osama all wrong. First he had become an expendable pawn in the game. Obama had him waisted to try and make himself look like a tough president. But look at what he did next. He informed the world that day what had happened giving all the bad guys in the world a heads up that we might be coming for you so start running. All the intel we gathered that day at Osama's compound was worthless. Next look at the message Obama sent to the world concerning informants, we will rat you out to our enemies so they can have their revenge on you. In other words, no one in the world will want to be an informant for the US as long as Obama is in office, his intention, helping the other side, WINK. And, look at how respectful he was to his fellow comrade in arms, Osama. Gave him a proper islamic burial, how nice. No, his dithering was trying to figure out how to make this crisis into an opportunity for success, plus maybe he had a bit of a tear for old Osama, but instead of being buried at sea he should have been shot out of a cannon after being drug through the streets of NYC.

    • mlcblog

      Now I know why the Navy SEALS are speaking out. That play at making the O a national hero for going to war and taking out the bad man (the other O) was disgusting. I hope they don't get away with it. God bless the SEALS for speaking out about what really happened when THEY took out Osama.

      • amused

        What REALLY happened was JUSTICE , Obama may have ordered to shoot on sight , maybe not , but that's what happened .What's your beef other than a black President ordered the strike ? I dont care whether that was the case or a trigger happy Seal . YOU know why ? YOU DONT KNOW SHIIIT . All you know is what got pumped into your head , which is now a cesspool of hatred . Of course you're disgusted , so much so that you male yourself a liar . Obama gave all the credit to the Seals and acknowledged the years of Intel , that led to the raid . Go clean out your head so you can think straight .

        • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

          What really happened was he sat on the info for months, when he couldn't sit on it any longer slept on it another 12 hours until it finally got his OK and now he pretends it's all his idea (when Bush set things in motion).

          No wonder the soldiers are peeved, what is Obama going to do? Deny them the vote some more, or even change the rules of engagement to get more killed off?

          Go clean out what ever, I don't care. But don't pretend to be speaking truth here.

          Yeah Obama, Yeah Navy Seals. Now can you discuss the main premise of what I wrote?

        • mlcblog

          Dear Amused,

          This one time I am going to respond to you because I have something I want to say, and it is this.

          Whenever I see, hear, smell Barack Hussein Obama even think about taking credit for ANY military victory won by our men, I shudder with a creepy feeling just before I have an urge to vomit. This is because BHO has displayed such disdain for our military men/women and their lives. He is obviously out to wreck their cause, reduce their power, and do everything he can to discredit them. So when he wants to say he is the one responsible in any way (giving a command is something that counts? perhaps but not in his case because he does not respect human life. Remember, he voted to kill babies who are trying to live) then I am just flat not going to buy it and further I will oppose it, as I am doing here.

          The details of one particular incident do not entice me to cut it up with you. Thank you for allowing this forum for my statement of utter disgust for BHO when he tries to pretend he is with our men or has any respect for them.

    Rip Van Obama–he's been asleep for the past four years. He was in the White House way late one night, reading letters from the poor, the tired, the hungery, the huddled masses…under a portrait of Lincoln..he opened his eyes last night and began to talk on and on, without recalling anything he's done the four years he's been president. He only remembered he was reading letters, his dog Bo lying by his chair, and he was just going to find Michelle and tell her how angry he felt about what was happening to the poor, the tired, the hungary, the huddled masses…the middle class…

      Great analogy.

Every child in school should be asked if this reflects SANITY, not to mention a responsible public "servant". Maybe she has had too much of her own wine, or it's turned to vinegar.

    Funny how they convently "forgot" to mention that the 49.5 billion dollar taxpayer bailout of GM came at the expense of 20,000 Delphi salery retirees, who lost up to 60% of their pensions and ALL of their health care. These men and women worked side by side with union employees, paying into their pensions and health care obligations.

    Milking the Cow Dry in Alameda County (Obamaville) part 1.

    While stopping for a bite to eat in Oakland California yesterday, I had a chance to witness first hand the great liberal give-away, as hundreds of illegal aliens, young mothers, and homeless filed into the Alameda County Eastmont Medical Center for free treatment.

    That’s right folks, they line up everyday of the week for free comprehensive medical care, including many other free services like immigration counseling. With nearly all services at Eastmont paid for by the California Tax Payer, it is no wonder California is bankrupt. But until you see this circus for yourself, then reflect on the big Obama entitlement show, well let’s just say that it elevates the issue to a whole new level.

    • fiddler

      And Mexico heaves a sigh of relief: "at least WE don't have to worry about them".

    • trickyblain

      How do you know they were illegals? Did you check all of their documentation?

      Oh, and right under the "immigration counseling" it says "For Refugee Change of Status applicants only."

      Is the Republican vision really about sick kids not getting treatment because their parents can't afford it?

      And let's not get too carried away with the "bankrupt" thing. Being in Oakland, you should've known that the geographic heart of the economic engine driving America right now, high-tech, was just a bit south.

WHAT did GW do ? What do you think McCain would have done ? What did GH do ? Or Clinton Or Reagan ? What in the hell do you think Romney's gonna do ? N-O-T-H-I-N-G ! Ya know why ? VOTES AND CHEAP LABOR . You think Americans are gonna pick cotton , apples , peaches , vegetables for the money they're paying the illegals ? HAHAHA , then you're really deluded . If you wanna solve the problem , you let them stay , get'em registered and deduct payroll taxes ….make the employers which almost ALL do with any American worker -enroll them in a group medical plan which they pay at the same rate other Americans in group policies pay .Pay them a decent wage .

    I have talked to people who plan to vote for Obama and I have asked them "Have you heard about Solendra?" Have you ever heard of Fast and Furious and the dead border patrol agent?" "Have you heard the deficit hit 16 Trillion, thatt's Trillion with a T?" , "Have you heard the Mu-slim Brotherhood has taken over Egypt?", "Have you heard there are now 7 million on disability and 25 million unemployed?" and there response is that they don't even know what you are talking about. This is sheer ignorance.

  • Schlomotion

    Aside from the appeal to religious fundamentalism, the major turn-off of Mr. Kaufman's article is his attempt to dictate what peoples' rights are. He says:

    "Congressman John Lewis of Georgia was once a leader in the American civil rights movement. He fought to end segregation, which he was a victim of. However, that does not give him the right to use the issue of race to make a phony political argument."

    Opprobrium to Mr. Kaufman for trying to chisel John Lewis's headstone and make him out to be a has been. Congressman Lewis is one of America's finest living orators and champions. It is not a phony political argument to say that biometric voter ID Fascism is racist. In fact, what is really taking place is that neo-Confederate Republicans have simply expanded their definition of the N-word to cover all non-Republicans. Mr. Kaufman prefers the Israeli Likud Party Platform to the American freedom of having no de facto or implicit pre-conditions for the exercise of the ability to vote.

    Mr. Kaufman is therefore virulently unAmerican and I am grateful to men like John Lewis with whom we shall all overcome even this latest Jim Crow law.

      John Lewis is a fraud as well. You need to open your eyes pal.

        BLJ You have to consider the source, schlo has no business defining what is or isn't American. He speaks only for his deluded self.

        IMHO asking for photo ID (not biometric, that's a canard of schlo's own making) to vote is a valid request that I support "as an American"!
        It is a phony political argument that John Lewis is absolutely trying to prop up to use as a wedge issue. The implied racism by both Mr Lewis and schlo is false and they should both be ashamed of themselves.

    A very spot on piece by a fellow by the name of Kurt Eichenwald :
    The GOP must be stopped in 2012. The future of America’s ideals of democracy – and of the Republican Party itself – could well be at stake.
    Contrary to how it might seem, I am not a partisan bomb thrower. Throughout most of my adulthood, I have been just as likely to vote for a Republican as for a Democrat – in local, state and national contests. I have cast my ballot in presidential races for both Republicans and Democrats. But in the last four years, the GOP has transmogrified into something ugly and vicious and, more important, something wedded to the politics of fantasy and ignorance. It has rushed so far from its moorings that I cannot conceive of voting for members of this party until, hopefully, they pull themselves back from the precipice of self-destruction, paranoia and delusion.

  • amused

    Today, for Republicans, up is down and front is back. Lying has become so ingrained into the conservatives’ national dialogue that they are now dangerously demagogic or, worse, severely unhinged. Blind rage at the election of Barack Obama has wrecked a once great political party. Its leaders have made so many deals with the devil in their almost pathological obsession with unseating Obama that they have pushed the GOP into its own version of political hell – unable to speak truths to their now-rabid and conspiracy-addled base and unable to right the party back onto a path of responsibility.
    Only through the disinfectant of defeat can the Republicans, and the two party system, be preserved. And so, the campaign of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan must be consigned to the ash heap of history. Defeat must not only be decisive, it must be crippling. .

    I They are liars. Most of the major newspapers and networks have adopted Marquess of Queensbury rules when addressing the utterance of utter falsehoods by Romney, Ryan and their surrogates. A velvet glove doesn’t deter deliberate deceit, and it certainly hasn’t here. Calling the words of Romney and Ryan “at odds with the truth” and “not factually accurate” is the coward’s way of communicating that the entire GOP campaign is based on lies, innuendo and more lies. There is a dramatic difference between the usual nip-and-tucking of the presidential campaign season and the flood of prevarication pouring out of the mouths of Romney and Ryan. To name just a few:
