Convention Chairman Antonio Villaraigosa tried to add the new sections via voice vote, but had to take the vote three times after nays appeared to match yeas. Eventually he declared a two-thirds majority for amending the platform, which was met with boos in the hall.

We should’ve kept our cards closer to the vest... and started playing this one on Thursday.

Since they changed the platform... we gave this issue right back to them.

No, they goofed and did so poorly. The booing alone is the stuff of campaign ads.

Does it seem to anyone else that the Democrats are spending an awful lot of time and effort reacting to issues that the Romney people are putting out there, instead of concentrating on coming up with some sort of persuasive idea as to why Obozo should get another term?

Behavior like that is a sure sign that they are completely lost. When the other guy keeps you reacting to his agenda instead of putting out your own message, you're screwed.

These people are morons, Obama hasn't got a chance with this kind of campaign coordination.

So, in our spare time when we're not saving the country, we save the DNC from itself and Dem babies from their mothers.

The socialist and homo activists take seriously, their hatred of the Jewish/Christian God and Israel. This backdown from “progress” is going to sting the radicals. The liberal social doctrine of humanism must erase the notion of God before Utopia can arrive.

I can’t wait to see them explain the “Nays” and “Boos” from more than 1/2 the delegates present. PR DISASTER! Of course, FNC is the only station that will mention it.

There was a split of cheers and boos from the delegates. Several times.

The public needs to know that there is a substantial bloc of the Democrat convention that is antitheist and possibly antisemite as well.

And then they had to deem it passed over the vigorous objections of the delegates. Will some aspiring journalist ask Little Miss Debbie about why they passed the amendment against the will of their delegates?

She either acknowledges it didn't pass or will branded a liar by the video. Win-Win

After booing God, it’s probably a good thing they moved the convention inside.

WTH?

Why are Romney and PUBS trying to correct the dhims? Let them make fools of themselves before the American people.

The GOP is truly the Stupid Party. How could they have survived for so long?

If the Democrats think Romney’s good enough to decide what’s in their platform, how can they deny he’s also good enough to run the country?

Excellent point and I think part of it stems from the fact that Obama has NEVER faced a tough opponent who fights back.

All his IL legislature wins involved dirty tricks on opponents who self imploded with leaked divorce papers, sex scandals, etc.

And McCain was a weak opponent who never fought back and muzzled Palin.
