Convention floor chaos: Democrats alter platform, disagree (Outrage from Jew-hating, atheist 'Rats)
CNN ^ | 9/5/12 | Kevin Liptak and Ashley Killough

Posted on 09/05/2012 6:01:17 PM PDT by jimbo123

In a rare display of just how quickly a tightly scripted national political convention can unwind, Democrats on Wednesday struggled to complete a voice vote amending their party platform to include language referring to Jerusalem and God.

It took three attempts from Democratic National Convention Chairman Antonio Villaraigosa before the platform was amended, and a loud chorus of delegates yelling "no" met each attempt to pass the changes by voice vote.

It makes me wonder, why the Jewish people keep voting for the Dems?

I suspect a fair number of hard core Democrats who also count themselves as Jewish when they can bash a Republican were in on the NO VOTE.

I agree, also it seems liberal jews don’t resemble the jews in Israel who are our allies.

Racism raises its ugly head at the democrat convention! No surprise here.

Watch for code words, from Slick, dissing Obama.

For the same reason my son votes for the Dims even though he complains about them all. His grandfather voted straight ticket Democrat.

For example, when President Bush was creating 600,000 to 700,000 jobs a month my son said he should be doing more. Now when Zero creates 150,000 jobs my son will not talk about it. BUT HE WILL VOTE FOR ZERO in November.

Incidentally he has not ever been an Zero fan, he voted for Hillary in the primaries. But he will still vote Democrat.

The dems have always been willing to throw anyone under the bus for Obama, Jerusalem is just another casualty, along with God, of course.

i was driving home from the office (at 8PM) and flipping through the radio stations....XM is having a special and i get it for free for 3 weeks so i pass by Fox radio and stop at CNN radio...

the CNN host is grilling the rat delegate about the boos when Jerusalem and the word God was added to the platform as well as the fact there did not seem to be 50% of the delegates who wanted it added, and the rats have a rule rules that 66% vote is required...the rat delegate protested, was pissed and acted obnoxious but the CNN host was giving it to her pretty good...

I think today was a DISASTER for 0bama and the Democrat party. This will resonate over the next few days and even overshadow 0bama’s speech. It takes a couple days for the average voter to grasp what today meant. This day will go down in history as one of the most demeaning and depressing days in American politics. God out. Jerusalem out. The booing of putting them back in. Our Forefathers are turning.. AGAIN. Just another page in 0bama’s legacy of INTOLERABLE, UNBELIEVABLE, OUTRAGEOUS AND UNACCEPTABLE ACTIONS.

Don’t know that either of them ever created a job. Bush probably did hire a few staff and domestics after he left office. But that’s it.

Why the hell would you talk to a liberal? People who provide social and/or familial support to liberals are the enemy. Death-symps.

The media is pinning it on the “delegates” not Obama in fact
it was Obama who wanted God and Jerusalem back so say the media. We all know Obama is with the delegates. Just like the “Congress” is the reason why Obama is doing so poorly he is really trying but the Congress just won't help him.

Obama and the media suck

Because it’s tradition for plenty of people to vote Democrat, some Jews, Christians, etc. have that kind of belief. However, at the same time, I look at the DNC and find it odd that some people can actually believe what was said there: Immigration reform, ending the budget deficit with no presented budget plan right in front them, etc. all while they spent years essentially doing the opposite of what they promised. Again, it sounds for the most part like a B.S. promise being made here. There is a small likelihood that perhaps the opposition encouraged them to take this position, and they would carry it out if elected, but I feel a great deal of doubt about that.

This is hard to hear because there's a lot of noise in the convention hall. You have to listen close here to hear Durbin. But he's there, because he knows. Here's the thing. Durbin knows the fact that news has gotten out that Democrats have taken God out of the platform, that's not something insignificant. That could really, really be a factor in the outcome of the election. More so than Michelle's speech. That's big, believe me. He knows it.

CNN was shocked, and this is the same network that during the Lebanon/Israel conflict said that Israel was “Murdering women and children.” Even the Communist News Network was stunned by what the Dems did..even John King called it an “Embarrassment”

And you sir/madam are one of the main reasons our country is failing. YOU ADVOCATE THE DESTRUCTION OF THE FAMILY UNIT.

Shame on you. Next you will tell me I cannot talk to a Jew or a Catholic or a Methodist or an English man or ...

I hope their backtracking and putting “God” and “Jerusalem” back in the Platform pisses off their Arab and Muslim supporters and their BOOING of God and Jerusalem pisses off their Jewish supporters. As Michelle Malkin said: “It’s a PR nightmare.”

Knock off the hysteria. The man who tolerates (encourages) liberalism under his roof destroys his own family.

You are the one who is hysterical. You are advocating I should abandon my son including his wife and children. And by doing so to exclude them from visiting with their siblings and families.

You are the one who states I am tolerating liberalism. I do not rather I argue against it. I assume you would not tolerate your child from stating something you do not agree with. I at least can still converse with my son and attempt to change his thinking. You do noting but shut out the rest of the world.

I still state, your type of mentality is the prime reason our country will decline because you do not allow any discussion, any type of compromise, any type of education.

I feel sorry for you and your extended family. I am sure there are many in it who miss you very much. I at least am able to have holidays and vacations with all of mine.

Thank God, all my adult kids are Conservative. But what would you have ProudFossil do; kick the kid out of the house just because he's stupid? Do you have adult children? If so, what would you do? Just curious.

There won’t be any code words.

But there were. Clinton said something about shared prosperity, and shared responsibility. Just another way of saying Socialism for the masses but not the elite. Another was,” One for all and all for one”.
