CHARLOTTE, N.C. — One day after some Democrats shouted down attempts to re-add language affirming Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and reinsuring mention of God into the party platform, a top Democratic official said that they were booing the way the situation had been handled.

~~SNIP~~

"it was an issue that was trumped up by Republicans because they have not been happy with the coverage that’s coming out of our convention because it really makes their convention look like a poorly put on child’s Christmas play,"

Christmas plays usually involve the mention of Jesus and God. Couldn’t use that term in the same sentence with Democrats.

I remember what the media and democrats said when one or two guys out of a republican audience of hundreds "booed a gay soldier".

I don't recall the media carrying the republican's side of the story in that instance.

According to officials, Obama himself did push for the platform to be altered behind closed doors. But his wishes were never communicated to delegates on the floor — many of whom booed the changes.

Translation: Had the useful idiots understood that their lordship wanted to reverse his original position, they would have dutifully obeyed his wishes. At least a child's Christmas play is better scripted and performed.

They were booing the process because they didn’t want to see God put back in, so they were also booing God.

I'd be more energized by this issue if the Romney/Boehner GOP-e hadn't executed its own little act of tin-pot convention tyranny just last week.

Neither of these parties is committed to our liberty or to the democratic process.

EXCEPT that more than half of them also shouted NO! to adding God and Jeruselem back into the platform. Boos notwithstanding.

Obama was the one that removed God and Israel to begin with. The only reason why he asked for it to be put back in was because of the heat that the GOP gave him. Obama knew that this removal would be bad since he needs the Jewish vote

Right, Obama has to be a friggin leftist idiot (which he is) to think he could just take out the last reference to “God” in their platform, without anyone caring. Or dropping Jeruselem as Israel’s capitol.

Do people even realize what Obama is planning to do to Israel in a second term? This is pure leftist agenda just dying to break out.

Nice spin. The boos and hollering over the inclusion of the “Jerusalem” and “God” language doesn’t surprise me at all. I caught the first day of the convention and a Jewish supporter came on stage and gave what I thought was a conservative sounding speech supporting Israel. All you could hear was the murmuring of the crowd, some very tepid applause and what I thought were a few boos.

"a senior Democrat said Thursday at a background briefing, speaking only the condition of anonymity."

Mr. Anonymous blames GOP for spinning. LOL. Jarrett, Axelrod, and Wasserman-Schultz have apparently given up trying to clean up the PR nightmare. The truth is spinning out of control.

Below is an evolving post of mine on the DNC disaster/perfect storm.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The "nays" had it all three times.

my favorite comment: “I recorded the volume on my audio software for neys and yays and the ney’s were slightly louder in all 3 “shouts”."

My husband, an audio engineer, actually did that from my iPad. The NO’s won.

I was asked by a liberal friend if I was sure it was the Godless democrats that were booing or just the Arab and Muslim “Americans” doing it.

I was like “Well that's better, NOT”

The really big electoral prizes are solidly in Obama's camp. We'll be lucky to squeez a victory out this November.

We have successfully imported socialism from the rest of the world.

They ran out of time - the report on the really, really foul weather which caused the DNC to have to move Obama's speech to a smaller venue disappointing thousands of his fans took up the entire broadcast.

There is something else here.

I am reminded of the comment that William F. Buckley made to the effect that

“I would rather trust the first 100 names in the Boston phone book to run the country than the faculty of Harvard University.”
