The Dem Convention

Postby Greenhead Grappler » Mon Aug 25, 2008 9:34 pm

Those who are watching, what do you think?

personally, looks like a crowd full of fruitcakes and tree huggers to me. and they spent more time dancing to bad songs from the 90's then they did getting anything done.

I read a couple articles that described the confusion there. They're STILL having votes for hillary to "honor" her :rolleyes: they can't even figure out that Obama got the nomination. But all this is actually good in a way for the GOP.

That has to be not only the funniest thing I have read in a while but it's also one of the most true analogies I've ever read :thumbsup:

I saw a little of it tonight and I saw a lot of very rough looking women and tree huggers. It was very weird just watching a few minutes. Hillary looked like she was talking though clenched teeth when she gave new york's votes away.

Just that Bill Clinton and Biden, both said that Obama is ready to lead, convinces me that they have sold their souls to the Democratic ticket. I actually threw up in my mouth, when biden was chirping about all of Barak Obama's accomplishments in Illinois, on the local and federal level. The man has done nothing, let alone anything that is remarkable for my state.

Al Gore is the most bitter loser I have ever heard speak. I can't believe that he would embarass himself like that. He was terrible.

He told me I had to worry about "climate refugee's" whatever in the hell they are. But he stands for a party that supports the illegal aliens that are here now.

What an Idiot.

The specifics will come during the debates, where George McCain will have his ass handed to him. :yes:

Brydog,

If Barack has the ability to easily out debate McCain, why does Obama refuse town hall type meetings ? McCain wanted them months ago and still does. Obama refuses.

Obama's lack of substance is going to show during the debates. The problem is that it has been showing the whole time. They just don't care. Blind hatred of Bush is ruling their camp, and they use Bush as speech filler. I think all the other speakers, Gore, the Clintons, ect. may have said "Bush" more times than "Obama".
Unbelieveable.

Don,
I don't know why Obama declined to team up with McCain for a traveling debate. McCain mentioned this on Jay Leno the other night but didn't elaborate on it.

Blind hatred of Bush ??? Everyone in this country KNOWS what Bush is. There is NO such thing as "Blind hatred of Bush". If people are blind when it comes to Bush, it's because they choose to be, and those are mainly Republicans. Rich Republicans that prosper under the Bush Policies. Burying their heads in the sand while their bank accounts overflow from HUGE Oil Profits and War Profiteering.

Brydog, it's an uphill battle with these guys and most tend to use misinformation they pick up form FOX or Rush, so it's not an evenhanded discussion...but at least you try, so good on ya.

Don, perhaps the reason Obama didn't do the townhall meeting thing was that it would have been extremely premature (he wasn't the Dem nominee yet), and if he had done it then you all (the R crowd, not you personally) would have banged on him for assuming he was already the candidate. Can't have it both ways.

The debates should be interesting though, especially the Palin/Biden ones.
But just because Obama might win a debate doesn't mean the right would give him credit for it or consider any of his words or logic. Most political support has devolved to non-thinking cheer leading that ignores substance.

Wow just like Obama supporters. Cuz obama has no substance...funny how that works.

And when somebody makes a valid point about Obama... it is just one excuse after another why he does not do this or that. :no:

You mean like the Saddleback Debate? :crazy2:

I'm sure when Obama finishes with his lengthy vocabulary of "ums", "uhhs", "ahs" & "ems", when there is no teleprompter, the choice will be clear, once again.

You libs crack me up with your bass ackward's logic and missing link, sense of reality. :rofl:

I've seen Obama speak several times and have NEVER noticed him reading anything on paper or from a teleprompter. Unlike George Bush and John McCain, Obama speaks from the heart so he doesn't need a script written by someone that can think straight.
Do all of you Republicans have the same playbook on "How to defend a looser President"?!?!? You ALL say the same things. :tongue:
