Charles Krauthammer: Her whole task was to say why. And her answer was, Why? Because essentially he's a saint. Because of his upbringing and because of his emotions and because of his humanity. He does of this because he cares. And the brilliance of it is this: It drained Obama of any, either, ideological motivation, or any having to do with self interest or ambition, which I think is sort of a more plausible explanation.
He's a man highly who is liked and highly ideological. A man of the left who sees the role of the government as ordering, the reorderering, of society in a way to make it more just, as he understands it . And also, extremely ambitious. A self made man who makes himself out of nothing, rises out of nowhere. But all of that, in her telling, doesnt even exist. The only reason he does what he does, he cares about women, he cares about immigrants, he cares about the poor. He cares about the unemployed. He cares, he cares, he cares.
She told the story of a Gandhi. And, you know, looking at the scene, looking at how he's conducted himself in the presidency and particularly in the campaign, with ruthlessness and determination and drive, its not quite a plausible story. Im sure in the arena, it was a plausible story. I saw the tears, but Im afraid, I thought it was a great speech, but I didn't buy a line of it.

“A man of the left who sees the role of the government as ordering, the reorderering, of society in a way to make it more just, as he understands it.”
That Is really and truly messed up. This is not about him and it is not his place to ‘reorder society’ as he sees fit. Scary stuff.
Me neither, Chuck.
I didn’t watch a bit of it. I can’t stand to watch her or her lying anti-American commie dirtbag husband. But they’ll no doubt try to portray Hussein as a victim and dredge up sympathy for him because he’s such a miserable failure. I heard Deval Patrick say we were trying to bully him out of the White House. Cry me a river.
Joe Trippi on Gretas program babbling like an idiot trying to avoid the question about why GOD was eliminated from the Platform....but NEVER answering Greata (big surprise)...He is saying the Platform doesnt mean that much LMAO! What a jackass!
The cynicism and deceit of the Democrats know no bounds.
When last we saw the Obamas speaking of his grandmother, she was a typical white woman who harbored racist feelings towards blacks hanging out at a bus stop, and the grandmother was herself thrown under the bus.
Now she has been resurrected as a soldier in the War on Women, someone who always arrived at work at the bank earlier in the morning than any male colleague and who trained her male colleagues only to see them promoted over her time after time.
Obama’s life story is like those of North Korean leaders, in which incredible fables are invented to serve whatever the political purpose of the moment is.
Well, I too get tears in my eyes when Moochelle speaks: WHAT THE **** HAS YOUR HUSBAND DONE TO MY COUNTRY???!!!!;)
I knew it was going to be a bunch of lies that were slopped up by the adoring press. She makes me sick how she lies so smoothly. Democrats have this particular evil trait amongs them. Speakers with silver forked tongues.
She’s an effective speaker. Knows how to sell the emotion. But in the end she’s just shilling socialism, which always sounds good on paper. It’s always easier to tell people you’re going to give them “free” stuff.
You’re so right, it is an evil trait and she is particularly good at it. Like her husband, programmed and trained from a young age.
I think my son hit the nail on the head.
He said that during the RNC, the speeches were OK.
BUT... he said the reason he doesn’t like the DNC speeches is because they talk to you as if you were a little kid who is stupid and has to have everything explained to you.
[ He is saying the Platform doesnt mean that much ]
Then why was the liberal media making such a big deal out of the GOP’s pro-life position in their’s last week?
lying is their native tongue......
"But sir, nobody worries about upsetting a droid."
"That's 'cause droids don't pull people's arms out of their sockets when they lose. Wookiees are known to do that."
―Han Solo to C-3PO
Well, if people aren’t going to be vigilant and extremely protective of their freedom and liberty, than people like the Obama’s are going to come along and take it away from them.
That’s the point we are at now. Thanks a lot Americans for being such stupid, ignorant suckers.
