Exclusive: Obama to include Republicans in hard-hitting convention
Politico ^ | 8/10/12 | Mike Allen

Posted on 08/10/2012 3:24:38 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Advisers to President Barack Obama are scripting a Democratic National Convention featuring several Republicans in a prime-time appeal to independents — and plan a blistering portrayal of Mitt Romney as a heartless aristocrat who “would devastate the American middle class,” Democratic sources tell POLITICO.

Obama just needs filler since so many Democrats are staying away.

Seriously. I understand the Republicans who did not like Bush, and wanted to send a message to the party, and for some insane reason were in utter denial about Obama being a Marxist, and voted for Obama in 2008. But for the life of me, I cannot understand how any Republican can support Obama in 2012.

Romney is not Reagan, Goldwater's firebrand attack dog, so there are no equivalents to "John Anderson Republicans" this time. While McCain was no Reagan, there is no "punish the GOP because of Bush and Iraq" Republicans this time. Who is left?

If Powell shows up, it will only confirm it is all about race with him. He could have voted for one of his Vietnam Brothers in Arms, but abandoned McCain.

My guess is any Republicans who show up will be irrelevant state level pols, gay Republicans, pro-choice women Republicans, and a handful of anti-Mormon bigots. Basically, those who would trade the destruction of the country, and the destruction of the majority of their freedoms for free birth control pills or a same sex "marriage" license.

Let us hope Romney and co. find some Dems out there to put in their convention. Perhaps even some former 0bama supporters who have lost the “hope.” Must be millions of them out there.

Obama is moderate.
Romney is conservative.
War is peace.
Freedom is slavery.
Ignorance is strength.

Obama's handlers seem to think that 1984 was a guide book to building a utopia, and that Joseph Goebbels was admirable for his public relations skill.

“If Powell shows up, it will only confirm it is all about race with him. He could have voted for one of his Vietnam Brothers in Arms, but abandoned McCain.”

Of course it’s all about race. When 95% of any group vote for the person who looks like them, and who they think is going to treat them better because of they way they look, what else do you call it?

Like everything else the democrats touch, the Second Coronation Of The Obama Diety will be another Three Ring Circus.

In the center ring there will be a display by Georgetown college girls showing how they make good use of their taxpayer paid codoms.

Other featured acts will include Gays, Pedophiles, and homosexual goats.

Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi will conduct seminars on ethics and the Bill of Rights.

Union Thugs will conduct demonstrations of leg breaking methods while the Children of Acorn will provide tips on the newest vote fraud techniques.

Powell, Megan McCain never were GOP

One used it to advance his career

The other was born to a nutcase and needs attention.

“I cannot understand how any Republican can support Obama in 2012.”

There’s a difference between not supporting Romney and supporting Obama.

The reason? Mitt Romney supports abortion and gay marriage, just like Obama. I’m not going to support anyone who supports abortion and I don’t care whether they have the D or R by their name.

No more RINOs!

It will likely be one of the Maine sisters, the one that isn't running again.

Bloomberg is another.

Luger is also an option after the drubbing he got in the primary.

In 2008 20% of self identified “conservatives” stabbed us in the back and voted for Obama - they wanted to send someone a message. They did. They sent it to me and my family and I don't want to hear from these ash holes about sending another message.

Any RINO that shows up to speak must have some felony in his/her background and is subject to blackmail, Chicago style.

They should be publicly thrown out of the Republican Party.

So you’re willing to risk letting 0bama destroy what’s left of America and create a fiscal disaster we may never recover from because of a single issue, albeit well-intentioned?

I’m as pro-life as you are, but at this point the survival of the United States of America is just a little more crucial.

When will you myopic socons learn pragmatism?

I agree. Yesterday’s Fox poll that showed 0bama +9 showed 17% of Tea Partiers support him. A good number of those might come from right here in FR.

The Fox poll showed 17% of Tea Party members supporting Obama? That number is zero in real life. The tea party movement is a direct response against Obama. Anyone saying they are a tea party member and voting for Obama is lying.

Lisa Murkowski.

She's not a Republican; she's never been a Republican; she has no Republican friends.

She's a whacko-liberal to-the-left-of-Pelosi Democrat.

No matter WHAT she calls herself.

So what are the Democrats going to say at their convention, what successes will they point out, what dreams will they espouse for the future? They have nothing.

The convention will obviously be a hate fest against the GOP and a meaningless Obama love in. IT will be interesting to see what contortions the media make to spin the happy event.

Stop being silly. Romney’s far from a true conservative, but he’s NO Obama. Be realistic.
