Villaraigosa platform flap now the subject of a campaign ad
September 7, 2012 | 3:48 pm
An awkward moment for Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa at the Democratic National Convention has become the subject of a new television ad for a Republican congressman seeking reelection.
U.S. Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) announced that his re-election campaign has begun running a 60-second spot on Friday that shows Villaraigosa -- acting in his role as DNC chairman -- being booed by delegates after a trio of voice votes over changes to the Democratic Partys official platform. Those changes included the reinsertion of the word "God" into one passage and a declaration that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.
West campaign operatives said the ad is on cable but would not specify which stations. Campaign manager Tim Edson said the commercial, which is aimed at West's opponent, Democrat Patrick Murphy, shows that Democratic Party delegates had three times denied God, with a befuddled Villaraigosa presiding.

I love Allen West. I wish we had a whole lot more like him. He is not afraid and will not back down!
Mayor V. might be an Affirmative Action embarrassment to the Dems, but they really should be embarrassed by the warmed-over tripe served up by their AA president on his big night.
The fatal flaw of Affirmative Action was on full display during the Charlotte convention: it allows the bottom of the barrel to float to the top.
I know I am biased in my opinion, but I am certain that this video will resonate will most of the voters. IMO, the democrat rank and file will be disgusted.
Just as Peter denied Jesus three times, the Democrats denied God three times.
With respect, I disagree. Likening the Dems to the apostle Peter is giving waaaaayyy too much credit. It is more like the rejection of Jesus in front of Pontius Pilate(sp) - crucify.
Sorry. I don’t think the average person is going to know what that ad is all about. He needs to write what the vote was or include more of the stated proposal
Sadly, it ain't gonna' happen!

Nothing could show the Democratic party as an Communist Party group like denouncing God and showing their atheist demands like this video does.
Is that like saying that they float like turd which make good fertilizer; ergo they can lay claim to the most "fertile" minds to be found?
“Just as Peter denied Jesus three times, the Democrats denied God three times.”
I thought that exact thing when watching it happen live at the convention. Poor Ted Strickland, Ohio’s ex-governor looked like a deer in headlights.
Geez, talk about, ‘bad optics.’
Good ad, but another point to be made is that depite the desires of their own delegates, the Dem. leadership does whatever they want. How well will they represent you, an outsider?
Yeah, the party of the big tent of tolerance.
Here’s the comment I left on the LAT article.
“At the next Demoratic National Convention, they can just roll out a golden donkey named Big Government to worship. Then 100% of the delegates will cheer like mad.”
There are only ten comments so far, so if you “like” it at the LAT, it will stay at the top to be seen by thousands of ‘Rats.
They stole an election right in front of the cameras. Right in front of God and everyone.
Importantly, copy the video with KeepVid, which just needs the YouTube URL of the video, and saves it direct to your computer, so you don’t download software.
I kept the original Swift Boat ads, which were devastatingly effective against the traitor John Kerry, and now this DNC debacle, one of the worst political foul ups in the last hundred years.
This is historical stuff, and if you have a copy they cannot erase it from the Internet.

Bless your naïve soul. Would that the Democrat "rank and file" still have the capacity to be disgusted!
Yes, they do. Indeed, you will find plenty of Rank and File Dems who disagree with this. And you will find those that don't as well.
Now the leadership of the Dem party is completely corrupted-at best, they are only interested in political expediency. That is why the DNC chairman disregarded the actual "no" votes that dominated the arena and went with putting "God" back in. The leadership knows that that will not play well in Peoria. Or why would they not just leave "God" out of their platform? Because the rank-and-file would be disgusted.
The people at the Democrat Convention voted "NO," The Chair adopted "YES." Which set of Democrat voters will switch votes to the Republican Party?
This is a phenomenon similar to the Black Pastors who are horrified by Obama's support of queer marriage, but who tell us they will vote for Obama. Obama voters would pay $10 a gallon to go see the Reverend Wright unite The Mombasa MF with Larry Sinclair in blissful buggery on the steps of The Lincoln Memorial with Barney Frank as flower Girl.

I am with you. Two points. First, if the Dems were to go with not having "God" in the platform, it might be just enough to have enough Dem voters (who would otherwise vote Dem and for Obama) stay home November 6.
Two, stated before, the Dem leadership ignored the will of the majority of delegates by re-instating "God" in the platform. This is the true nature of the Dem leadership. Dictators in waiting.
