Are any of you going to watch any of the DNC? (Vanity)
September 2, 2012

Posted on 09/02/2012 10:07:50 AM PDT by SMGFan

Are you of going to watch the DNC or tune in to see Obama speech? I can see any reason I should. I do not want to listen to B.S.

I will watch O'Reilly & Hannity. But I will turn off any DNC speakers.

I will listen to Rush, Sean & Mark on the radio for anything worth hearing about.

On Wednesday I will watch the Giants game. Thursday I will avoid any coverage.

I’ll avoid it like I’d avoid a raving lunatic on a city street.

I haven’t watch more than three or four hours of television in the past 15 years, and that mostly in hotel rooms while trying to fall asleep.

Because of youtube, it’s not necessary to watch all the fallderah.
Speeches and transcripts are available all most instantly.
Really who needs to see all the fawning by the press, we know its going to happen.

Yes, I should proof read more often. I am sorry to those who are critical.

It is always a good idea to get a look at the enemy. Think of it as reconnaissance. So yeah, I will watch as much as my stomach can handle.

Not one second. Hope to follow the disaster I expect the acceptance speech to be on a live thread right here Thursday night.

I will do alot od reading or catch up on my TVLAND viewing. Maybe I can get back to the gym since I was bad last week. I can say with great pride that in 1996, 2000 and 2004 I did not watch any on the DNC. I broke down and watched Hillary’s speech in 2008 and a little bit of Biden in ‘08 but that was it.

You haven’t watched TV in the last 15 years??? Oh my gosh.

You have missed the reality show revolution. You have missed the adventures of Snooki, the brides of “Bridezillas”, and the hopes and dreams of little girls on “Toddlers and Tiaras”.

Not to mention, you are missing “NBC Nightly News”.

And, you don’t get to see the wit and wisdom of Jon Stewart.

How can you be in the dark about what’s going on in the world without TV??? (sarcasm)

I just do not have the stomache for it. Besides, we already know what they are going to say - Dems good, Obama even better - Repubs not just bad, but evil, white, racist, sexist, homophobe, warmongers, Oh, and I almost forgot - repubs help the rich and kill the poor.

That’s it in a nutshell.

I hardly had time to watch the RNC; only watched the good stuff on reply.
No way I would waste valuable minutes of my life on the DNC.

We all know ahead of time what they will say.

It will be a parade of freakish people railing against self reliance, decent moral values, individualism; and goodness.

On Wednesday I will watch the Giants lose to the Cowboys game.

That will be the extent of my TV watching for most of the week. However comma ESPN does have some counter programming Thursday night football in Pitt vs Cinci, 7pm CST.

I would if I had the ability to receive TV signals...but I don’t, so I won’t. I’ll go with our latest netflix selection. We kicked the tube out of our home 4 years ago and have never regretted the decision...and our blood pressures has dropped.

I have so missed Reality TV. I've seen one, the one where people clean out abandoned storage units. I watched about 20 minutes of it in the Milpitas CA Hampton Inn earlier this year.

Then, I found out later, it's completely fake.

Other than that, I've never watched a single Reality TV show.

I’d like to watch, but it will probably just aggravate me.

I think I will definitely watch Clinton and probably O’s speech too.

Maybe Big Chief Elizabeth Warren too, she is a world class moron and why they’ve given her a big spot puzzles me. Maybe she’ll call for full scale revolution, that might be fun.

I hope they do nothing but tout abortion, hate the rich, call Mitt Romney a dog-hating Mormon weirdo, and remind people that Paul Ryan wants to kill your grandmother - because I don’t think that’s going to play in Peoria.

That’s it in a nutshell.

Our first house was across the street from a fellow who worked a menial job at the nearby university. He was a member of a union; I think it may have been SEIU.

Once in a while (maybe once a year) the mailman would mistakenly deliver his mail to our house (we had a mail slot at the time). Pretty much every single time this happened, there would be a piece from his union (they must mail their members once a day, I'm not exaggerating).

These mail pieces were high impact, full color. Kind of like ads you get from local big-lot auto superstores.

They were wall-to-wall vitriol. Highly political. 80% venom against Republicans and conservatives, rich people. Conspiracy theory. Accusations of criminality.

20% telling the recipient how they couldn't possibly survive a day without the Union to protect them.

I would expect the DNC to be pretty much the same, because it will be scripted by the same people who write the union mailings.

No TV in our house...don’t miss it...have yet to see Clint Eastwood on YouTube. Might watch Obama, might not depends on how tired I am at the end of my usual 12-14 hr work day. I must say it is always good to know your enemy. I use the word enemy on purpose, as opposed to opponent. I liken our current situation to war on the home front. Americans v communists.

Our cat box will be getting full attention this week as well as taking the trash out and maybe catching up on some book reading. For the life of me it seems a waste that Fox News is even carrying this.

I will make some popcorn and watch the DNC blame George W Bush for the hundredth time. I will update my site during the clown convention in hopes I can sway some people. Let’s all keep praying that Obama Bin Lying is replaced in November! cramerchronicles.com

at the GOP conv. the men wore suits and their hair was combed and cut. The women were stylish and beautiful.

I watch the DEMs to see all the scragly dirty old hippies.
and the men are worse. bada bump-bump.

NO! I cannot stand to listen to Obungle speak because his smarmy voice grates on my nerves. Same goes for 99% of the other commies around him. And if I have to see one more picture of that frizzy-headed blonde woman, Debbie Whassername Schlitz, I’ll puke.

The CAIR, CODE Pink, La Raza and Mexican drug cartel rep. are the speakers I recommend folks tuning in.

Not unless I'm willing to hole up in a hotel room as my spouse informed me he'd not have it on here (not joking but praying I'd not wish to watch.)

Actually, having heard the lineup of speakers, I truly couldn't stomach it either.

Nope. In years past, I’d tune in to bits and pieces of the Dem convention for laughs. But not this year. Didn’t even watch the GOP convention either, for the first time in my voting life. I’ve always been a news/political junkie, but this election season has left me a pretty distant and dispassionate spectator. Hardly bother with the news, and I’m certainly not going to bother with the Dem’s freak-show.
