DNC Almighty Nightmare In Charlotte: Now Dems Put God And Jerusalem Language Back Into The Platform
CBN ^

Posted on 09/05/2012 3:01:30 PM PDT by NYer

This has become a disaster for the Democrats and a boon to the Romney campaign. The DNC has now added God back into their platform language after originally taking it out. They have also added language back in that says Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. When they tried to change the language on the convention floor, there were boos! Oy-gevalt.

Despite the corrections by the Democrats, the Romney campaign can now argue that the Democrats don't know what they believe on two very important topics. They can also argue that the Democrats only did this because of the pushback. That’s true. The Brody File first pointed it out and the media followed, making this a story that the DNC wants to make go away. The problem is it’s not going away. Expect the Romney campaign to push this until Election Day. These last second changes really just make the issue worse and make the Democrat Party look bad.

In a way it’s unfortunate for the party because speakers at the DNC have been talking about God from the stage and there have been plenty of faith-filled events down here in Charlotte. But party officials should have known this would get scrutinized. The issue is either political malpractice or something far worse.

Here is video of the adoption of the new language. Listen to the boos.

Here’s more info from Associated Press:

Democrats have changed their convention platform to add a mention of God and declare that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

The move came after criticism from Republicans.

Many in the audience booed after the convention chairman, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, ruled that the amendments had been approved despite the fact that a large group of delegates objected.

He called for a vote three times before ruling.

The party reinstated language from the 2008 platform that said "we need a government that stands up for the hopes, values and interests of working people and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential."

The platform also now includes what advisers said was Obama's personal views on Jerusalem.

The DNC DID NOT vote to restore God. That would require 2/3 vote. It was 50/50 at best. The DNC chair lied. Video http://tinyurl.com/9mrpgj3

If this video is not run as is...the GOP are idiots.

This totally destroys any momentum from Michelle’s speech last night. Even Begala is on CNN saying “I can’t defend that”

This is nothing more than a distraction orchestrated buy the DNC to keep the Media and the GOP from talking about the Economy.
Yes God is important. But He will have the last laugh.
