Someone needs to capture that video and store it in a safe place for posterity.

That voice-vote clearly failed three times, and was declared passed the third time - to boos in the audience.

Wow ... just watched that tape on Fox. Frightening! Actually ... this is probably the only video we will see this week that shows the will of the true Democratic Voting block.

“Apparently, their rules required a two-thirds affirmative vote to pass the platform amendment. So, he tried a third time and upon hearing nearly the same thing again just went ahead and declared that the amendment had received a two-thirds “yes” vote and passed it. It was hilarious.”

Wouldn’t it be challenged?

The Dems don’t recognise that there is any power higher than the Federal Government.

They deemed it passed - ha. Kind of sounds like what they wanted to do with the Health Care vote.

The Republican Jewish Coalition is working on ads as we speak.

This issue and the Dems booing / taking three times to get an affirmative vote is going to be a constant reminder up until the election.

See if the Jews vote Democrat this year.

I heard Dick Turbin as it happened and I was shocked.

“I guess you’re going to call me and all the good Democrats at this convention godless,” he shouted to Bret Brer.

I had to laugh.

Obama continually leads that party to the edge of the cliff. Will the Democrats ever get a clue about this guy?

CNN reported that Obama had to personally request that the platform be changed. I would say that they are worried about the Jewish and Christian vote.

They don’t really mean it.

That was never more evident as when they were forced to put it back in under pressure from outside that hall.

I believe this is going to hurt them big time!

I’m afraid that it won’t make any impression on them — they’ll vote for the dhims until the muzzies get a hold of them.

And then they’ll vote dhims again, just like so many Catholics that I know.

"So...they were against God before they were for God?

Something like that. I see it as:

They were for God before they were against God before they were for God (again).

It must be terribly confusing to be a democrat.

Great tagline, btw.

Villaraigosa had no idea what to do. Deer in headlights. It was obvious that there was not a 2/3 vote all three times he tried. The last vote seemed to clearly favor the “no.” But he said it passed.

No they didn’t, Fox News. Anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear would know that they didn’t have the two-thirds of the delegates necessary to amend the platform.

Actually, about half the delegates were for God, and about half the delegates were against God. At least that’s what the video shows. Tony V gave up after three votes and declared it passed.

The God and Jerusalem fiasco is a metaphor for the Democrats. They can’t run a convention and they can’t run a nation.

The party will emerge as a total disaster

I would hope some tecno savy Freeper would subject the voice vote levels to an instrument that will provide a graphic representation that indicates the actual level.

I have my own set of rules too and it is called the Bible. God is God and not some supposed contraction or pseudonym of convenience or such. As I stated previously, if one can’t say GOD then do these people actually believe in God or is it the D-vil?

Sorry if “GOD” offends. The term G-d instead of God has always unapologetically irked me. It’s like Muslims calling God - Allah.

The democrats, in their mercy, have decided to “let” Israel have their capital and permit God to live another 4 years, or at least until they can get one of their courts to rule God “dead” in every legal sense...
