Check out demconvention.com and peruse the list of “winners” they’ve lined up. What a bunch of rejects and retreads!
Obama must be the egomaniac he’s accused of being with this motley crew. There’s no one on this list that’s gonna be half the “Master-Orator” the President is.
Take “Georgetown Law Graduate” Sandra Fluke– who’s only real claim to fame is Rush Limbaugh calling her a “slut” on his radio show for complaining she has to choose between “food or birth control.”
Or something like that.
Then there’s “Fauxcahontas” Senate Candidate, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts- who lied to Harvard about her Cherokee heritage. She’s currently down by six points to Senator Scott Brown in a fiercely contested seat in one of the “deepest blue” of all States, Teddy Kennedy’s old seat.
And for a party trying to disavow its Socialist leanings… should they have as one of their keynote speakers a man with the last name Castro?
I’m sure the Mayor of San Antonio is a fine gentleman, but his last name is synonymous with one of the last socialist regimes left on the planet… Oh well.
Naturally I’m looking forward to Newark, New Jersey Mayor, Cory Booker.
He’s a man who not too long ago was on Obama’s enemies list for defending Bain Capital from the President’s attack machine. He’s doing a great job in Newark and seems to understand how the Free Market operates. The only question is whether he’ll be allowed to speak his mind or get stuck following a script.
Congressman Emanuel Cleaver will be speaking- he was a GREAT mayor for Kansas City – and had the fifth fastest growing economies amongst major cities during his tenure. I love the guy, but his voting record in Congress leaves a lot to be desired.
Then there’s former President William Jefferson Clinton– or “Daddy Bill” as the ladies call him. Its rumored he hasn’t tendered his speech yet to the Obama Campaign for “revisions” which kind of goes with the conspiracy theories that Clinton will continue to sabotage Obama’s campaign for his wife Hillary.
When you look at some of the stunts Clinton’s pulled so far – plus his enmity with Obama for labeling him a “racist” during the 2008 campaign- let’s hope Dick Morris is right and
Clinton will “gaffe away” and hurt the President’s re-election campaign.
The bottom line: If you had trouble staying awake or even bothered watching the Republican Convention (ratings were down 17 million from 2008), I don’t see where the Democrat lineup of speakers will do much to stimulate or enthrall you.
