Well, sometimes journalists have to realize the party just doesn’t give a sh*t about reporters. ;)

You’ve got that right. It is downright scary when the cameras pan the audience and they look star struck and full of hope and change more than ever with each lying speech. These people keep shaking their heads yes with each line of b.s. and that is when you know why the Democrats are catering to the moron vote like Rush Limbaugh said.

The article is about how unhappy the media types in Charlotte are with their accommodations, etc., mainly due to their lack of research. They don't like the city, they don't like the security, they don't like the color of their hotel room carpet.

Cry me a river.

They are hopeful the welfare checks will keep coming.

Even the welfare folks are tightening their belts; those checks are buying less and less with each passing month (and Obama’s media can’t hide that).

I think we got an official technical gaffe from Biden...

Michelle Obama spoke on Tuesday, but Biden thanked her for her speech “last night”, then “corrected” himself by saying “Monday” night... But she actually spoke on Tuesday night! HA!

"What we may loathe, tens of millions of others embrace!"

I can't exactly put my finger on it, but there is a distinct difference in the attitudes, comments and demeanor of the convention attendees this week from last.

Hadn’t seen the TV ratings for last night comparing the Cowboys/Giants game to the Democrat convention, so I went to google to look it up. Amazingly, there are two completely different accounts of the ratings! Some say the NFL opener won the most viewer, while others say Bill Clinton’s speech won. How can ratings be so screwed up? It’s just counting.

All of the delegates were give food stamps and they blew them all on lottery tickets, and had to go hungry when they all lost. Then they found out Michelle had to approve all of the food and beverages in the arena. They’ll all be happy to get home; away from the food nazis.

OK, that one was unintentionally hilarious. Thanks for posting.

No American should have to live like this. Especially not credentialed press.

Well, of course not! This is, of course, middle-class reality under the Age of 0bama but our reporter does not seem to be particularly fond of, ahem, "keepin' it real." No American should have to endure it, nor ordinary American at least, but particularly, ESPECIALLY the acme, the apex, the very royalty of American existence, the Credentialed Press. Good God, someone might take the perfumed darlings for ordinary people!

One suspects that Michelle Antoinette's posse fared somewhat better in the resorts of Spain or Hawaii. What a pity the author couldn't aspire to that elite! But who knows, a few more gushing love-pieces full of breathless admiration might just get the fellow into the A list and back in the rose-petal-scented baths and between the 1200-thread-count sheets. I'll pull for him. Really I will.

I don't blame you.

I'm not watching either. Better to not be distracted by Obama's lies and keep the pre-DNC Convention mindset. Although such footage like when they booed God and Israel would be good to use to remind people in social media such as twitter and facebook.

Me, I'm not going to watch Obama's lies on TV, I'll just follow it LIVE in the Political Forums.

Obama's made speeches daily over the last 4 years. I'm Obama-fatigued. I cannot help wondering if those daily speeches could backfire on the man. Seems like we've already had the man for 2 terms.

The author spent $250 a night for a Knights Inn that would ordinarily go for maybe $70 a night. The guy was a fool. Sure, hotel prices jumped for the convention, but if he was going to be paying that much, why would he choose a Knights Inn? I’m sure he could have found better accommodations...unless he booked at the last minute.

I would say his problems with this trip are probably of his own making.

The Democrat Convention reminds me of my youth, (late 40’s, early 50’s)when we would go to the freak shows at the carnival. For my money, the Democrat Convention is the best campaign ad that the Republicans could buy. Where else could you get this many of your opponents to expose their ignorance, poor manners and freakish nature for all to see, in the same building no less?

It is now time for the Republicana to capitalize on this opportunity of a lifetime! They should have enough video footage to make campaign ads forever.

I’m gonna play fair here for a moment. Last week, during the GOP convention, lib websites were full of the same kinds of comments we’re making now about their convention. They nitpicked every little thing, just like we’re doing now. All of that is to be expected, from both sides. But cast aside all the rhetoric and what are we left with? A failing President that can’t hide from his record. We know it AND the libs know it. Right now they’re talking a good game, but inside they’re nervous, very nervous. They know the country isn’t better off now than it was four years ago.

Putting corn in gas tanks drove up food prices while preventing drilling made gas prices rise and shutting down coal fire plants in the name of the environment makes electricity rates rise. Food, gas and utilities are three areas everyone pays, directly or indirectly.

To sum it up..we have had a Marxist president bent on destroying America and Israel and this convention is making him into a savior and a hero. He had a direct hand in the housing meltdown, he broke the law with how he handled the auto companies, he passed Obamacare against the will of the American people and it is all because he cares so much! Wow!

I wonder if Obama’s recent behavior toward the press will cost him the election? Would we have seen this kind of complaint from the MSM re the DNC when THE ONE was first selected?
When G.W. Bush won a second term, I remember reading an excellent article noting that his victory was all the more impressive because, among other entities listed, George “ran against the MSM.”
When Obama was first selected, the MSM provided continuous “in kind” contributions to his campaign. Endless devoted to his campaign via their broadcasters. But then Obama started getting angry when they weren’t fawning enough and weren’t interrupting regular programming enough etc. And then he started shutting them out. And they started getting angry. So now we have PUBLIC complaints from the MSM. They see themselves as priests and less than fawning attention is his blasphemy.
Yesterday - I was “fall down in shock” stunned to see NBC FACT CHECK DNC info. REALLY. I posted it here.

All I can say is, things have CHANGED. I HOPE they CHANGED enough! Can he win without a 100% full court press by the MSN?

“I guess we’ll start with the hotel. Ours is a ****hole. A $250-a-night mildewy rathole for truckers and prostitutes on a decimated strip mall. Charlotte is the armpit of the south, a glorified half-dead exurb with some tall buildings planted in the middle. There are skeezy-looking tattoo shops everywhere, and none of the stores are open past midnight.”

boycotting all things Romney and CT-5 rorabacker. Linda is a corporate campaign. What is a guy to do in the “most crucial election in the history of the world”? Do tax-planning? Ahhh ... the AL East is a dogfight!!

This is why we should tell people to READ Obama’s speech. His cadence and rhetoric make the speech appear gallant. It was anything but. Read the speech and see how empty it is of solutions, facts, stats and policies that actually work. He thrilled the lemmings and the moron vote but I doubt that he captured back any Indies or Reagan Dems.

Spoken like an up-stater.

The third capitol building (1824–1836), also built in Vandalia, was the scene of most of the service of Abraham Lincoln as a member of the Illinois state legislature.
