Here is a nice little summation of things. One of my e-buds sent this to me. Her son Ray from Long Island wrote it and it is, IMAO, the best little run down of the DNC's hot mess of a convention:
So now the DemoRats have had their turn. They used it to bash the selfish, successful individuals and lectured us about fairness, compassion and a benevolent, all-powerful Big Government without which we morons couldn't possibly survive. I couldn't stand to watch much of it, but here are some of the lowlights. (click on any of the links below to see either the speeches themselves, or commentary thereon.
Day one reached its pinnacle (hit rock bottom?) when our First Lady implored us to give her husband four more years to 'Fundamentally Transform America' into a European Socialist state because she loves him and he's a nice guy who cares. Tell that to the 23 million unemployed!
Day 2 had a few significant events:
First the 'Rats' decided God and Jerusalem don't belong in the party platform. Then in the face of Republican attacks and mounting backlash from Jewish donors, Obummer - in typical leading from behind fashion - "personally intervened" and VOILA!, the convention's chairman rammed through platform changes, (which of course were "The One's" opinions all along), in spite of the obvious Democratic objections .
Next, Sandra Fluke, (the 30 year old law student (who thinks its her right that you should pay for her contraceptives), ratcheted up the volume on the supposed 'Republican War On Women.' Oh, the irony.
By glorifying Ted (Chappaquiddick) Kennedy the day before and giving Bill ("I did not have sexual relations with that woman") Clinton the keynote address, the Dems elevated the only people to have caused actual casualties in that war - with Kennedy having its only confirmed kill.
Then Elizabeth Warren spent her time calling for more government spending and trashing Wall Street and CEOs - you know, the people who create jobs - while conveniently failing to mention the record millions in campaign contributions both she and her Messiah raked in from those very demons.
Finally, Clinton tried to convince America that - despite all the evidence to the contrary - "of course" we are better off than we were 4 years ago (the private economy's doing fine?) These guys must be big Marx Brothers fans - "Who you gonna believe, me or your own eyes?" - Chico Marx (Duck Soup) It all reached its climax (or was that Chris Matthews?) when our Liar-In-Chief descended from on high to deliver the same soaring rhetoric we've heard time and time again, filled with the same empty promises he failed to deliver on in the last four years, and completely ignoring utter failure his policies have wrought on our economy which have disproportionately devastated the poor and middle income folks he purports to stand for.
Calling for more "Investments" in "Roads & Bridges" - like the 6% of the $850B stimulus (borrowed from China) that didn't go to his bundler buddies.
Taking credit for the few bright spots - like increased Natural Gas production - that flourished on private land in spite of the EPA's efforts to shut it down. Lying about his Foreign Policy "successes" (yeah, he reluctantly gave the "bold" order for the Navy Seals to take out Bin Laden).
Reasserting ever-increasing Government Bureaucracy as the answer to everything.
Urging us to look "Forward" because if we look back and judge him on his miserable record of failure, he's done.
Some "success."--Our allies don't trust us, our enemies laugh at us, the Muslim Brotherhood is taking over the Middle East, and Iran daily threatens the very existence of Israel with a looming nuclear holocaust.
If you have the stomach for it, watch this speech. See if you can get through it without vomiting, pointing out every lie he tells and getting fired up to defeat him in November.Apparently, we're all just too stupid to realize the magnificence of his O-ness, says Frank Fleming in, The First Term of Obama Has Been a Failure... of America.I just can't take all the B.S. any more. We need a break. Here's a list of 689 Reasons to Defeat Barack Obama
