What’s this? Did Dick Durbin suddenly notice the smell of ozone intensifying around him?

Anyone need more proof that the DNC is completely in the hands of the Marxists? First they eliminate God from their platform and abandon Israel - then they ram through an "approval" vote against the obvious sentiments of the Leftist majority.

Anyone who votes for any Democrats this election is suicidal.

Can you just imagine the White House representative coming to the platform committee:

"Are you people out of your *bleepin* minds? This was really necessary now? Will somebody on this committee PLEASE tell me why this was done?? Get this reversed NOW, or there will be blood in this committee room!"

I wasn't there, but I believe this is a good guess...

This is a face saving reversal and doesn’t mean a thing. We already know what their real position is.

just watched it. WOW! these are DELEGATES! and the video of the shaking of heads and screaming was eye opening.

I'm thinking that video is going to surface again in an ad...

might be a specifically targeted PAC ad, but none the less...

This is very very bad for the Dems..if the Dems thought the “You didn’t build that” statement by Obama was bad, this is even worse than THAT..even Chuck Todd on twitter said this is very bad for the Rat party. Hey GOP, time to make an Ad that will sink these Anti God, Anti Israel freaks back underneath the rocks where they came from

That “yea” vote was not two-thirds. The “nay” voted sounded like close to half. This motion was ramrodded through — now e have this video to show the world what they really believe, that they are Godless and Hate Israel.

Mayor ViagraLaRaza: “Let me do that again.”

How embarrassing. The vocal vote didn’t come out as planned.
Mayor “V” rolls his eyes and says “Let me do that again.”

They do it again, and this time it’s even worse. Mayor “V” and the Minister who proposed the (override to the override to the override) stand there speechless.

One could ‘see’ in Mayor “V’s” eyes , he was wondering just HOW STUPID the delegates were. I guess he found out.

The Democrat Party is so careful to hide who they really are. They accidentally let the curtain fall a bit. Their media PR department, otherwise known as the mainstream media, will have to work overtime to spin this one for them.

I loved how he started to say that it passed - assuming, of course that it would. Then he just made matters worse. Every "no" vote became more vocal.

Is someone going to call them on the fact that the vote DIDN'T pass?!?!? It falls right into our side's impression that they rule by executive order and deem things passed. I guess the payoff wasn't big enough. The delegates should have talked to Mary Landrieu and Ben Nelson about how to hold out your vote for the most cash.

El alcalde didn’t know what to do after the first vote.

You mean after the THIRD VOTE.

First was vote to (ignore our earlier stupidity and change our 'platform'...again).

Second vote was on putting GOD and ISRAEL back on the platform. When it failed, El alcalde said (never seen this happen in official procedure), "Let's do it again." (gee, the DEMS always do that when they lose a vote)

The Third time was even worse than the first, and El alcalde didn't know what else to do but just DECLARE the YEA'S the winner, as per planned in 'chambers'.

wow.. from start to finish, this convention was a mess. No matter what they say about the soaring speeches, this thing was a mess.

They were going to have a celebration of all things Obama but since there is nothing they can reveal, they pivoted to abortion and homos and when the media people said that was wrong and they should tone it down, they ignored them and booked the good queen Free Rubber Mc Pill, who is probably despised for defining women as merely sex objects that can’t accomplish anything w/o Sugar Daddy Obama.

Then they book self-made people who succeeded w/o Obama, to to tell everyone that the system is rigged and you can’t win unless Obama is reelected.

Then, to placate the rabid communists, they remove god and to placate the anti-semites, they removed Jerusalem from their defining documents but had to re-insert them both because of the backlash created by the optics.

Now they had to cancel Obama’s coronation because they could not figure out a way to drag 60k people into a stadium and paint smiles on their faces w/o the union assistance.

what a mess.. can’t wait for Joe to come out with his tie half-cocked and him all cocked talking about those cute minorities and those coal miners his grandpappy used to drive by on his way to work.

It's the way the demonRATs count any election, just keep going until you get the desired result.

Washington senate race, MN senate race, Kennedy over Nixon, and they tried with Gore v Bush in Florida but GWB wouldn't roll over.

When you take action using a Ready, Fire, Aim approach you get this kinda crap. They ‘assumed’ most delegates understood the Democrat Party and would just vote ‘Yes’ for the purpose of getting this issue out of the media. But, apparently some people really believe what they think the Democrat Party says it stands for...today, wait, yesterday, wait...sheesh.

No big surprise. The socialist political/regulator class is more anti-Israel than the rest of us. So the DNC bosses and their most favored few constituents will also have a platform that disagrees with their anti-Israel actions.
