DNC Day One

“They stab it with their steely knives but they just can’t kill the beast”

Maybe it’s all that cough syrup I drank earlier but I have a strange premonition about the DNC convention. Imagine a cross between Titanic and Masque of the Red Death directed by Stephen King. A doomed ship of fools trying to pretend everything is okay but unable to change their course or escape their fate, so they party on the eve of destruction.

Bless their hearts, the Democrats are putting up a brave front. But they have seen the real polls. The Democratic Media Machine keeps trying to assure everyone they are winning but they know the truth too. Their laughter will be forced and their lies transparent.

The end of an error approaches. Soon. Very soon.

“And Darkness and Decay and the Red Death held illimitable dominion over all.”

    I didn’t know that Stephen King directed. I’d prefer something directed by Clint Eastwood.

    Did the DNC assign conservative media to dangerous hotel/motel accommodations on purpose, as a joke perhaps or is Charlotte simply too small to have sufficient hotel rooms? If I were the mayor of Charlotte I would be severely pissed off at the Dems for placing the city up for ridicule. The Democrats are so nasty now that I think they did this on purpose.

    • angienc says:

      Plain old incompetence — like the rest of the Dem party these days. Charlotte is too small to have enough hotels to accommodate the convention attendees (and, unlike NOLA, it isn’t a “tourist city” that has tons of hotels despite its size). The Dems should have arranged for accommodations in some of the surrounding areas like Concord, NC and Rock Hill, SC (Rock Hill is only about a 1/2 hour drive from Charlotte — many people live there & work in Charlotte) rather than sending people to dumps *in* Charlotte.

      • Lulu says:

        If this is the case there are going to be delegates and party bigwigs that are going to be pissed off too but I doubt they will talk about it. Everything the Democrats do with Obama in charge is half-assed. The city of Charlotte will be smeared and it isn’t their fault.

      • They would never entertain the idea of using Rock Hill, because that serial liar Nikki Haley and her state might benefit. If Dems are about anything anymore, it’s about making sure half the country doesn’t prosper, while the other half remains dependent.

  3. I certainly hope you’re right myiq. I’m already sick to my stomach. Where’s the dramamine?


    or how about this:


    racing to barf as we speak. later………

    Even Democrats know that Obama is President Asshole.

    “President Obama’s competitive, boastful nature and condescending advice rubs even loyal Democrats the wrong way, a new profile alleges.

    The New York Times’ Jodi Kantor airs complaints from “loyal” Obama associates — not as a buried lede but explicitly in her introduction:

    He has mentioned more than once in recent weeks that he cooks “a really mean chili.” He has impressive musical pitch, he told an Iowa audience. He is “a surprisingly good pool player,” he informed an interviewer — not to mention (though he does) a doodler of unusual skill.”

    Somehow I KNEW he was a doodler and never pays attention in class or meetings. But why should he? He already knows everything.

    • Lulu says:

      And if staff is talking about him to the NYT like this they know he is going to lose. The preference cascade is building and the false narrative that he is somehow likeable is falling apart and they know it. Staff has not liked him for some time and now they dare say it.

    Jim Geraghty:

    Which would you rather have? A media that is so biased against your side of the aisle that they jump up and down and scream bloody murder over any error or potential error, or a media that is so in the tank for your side that your party’s leaders have grown completely complacent, to the point of reckless, in their public comments?

    Before you say you’d prefer bodyguard-style media coverage, keep in mind that with that approach, you end up with leaders like Vice President Joe Biden, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz. I mean… the cream doesn’t exactly rise to the top in that scenario, does it?

    • Lulu says:

      Why did he leave out Obama who is a perfect example of a biased press? He would have been in the bottom tier if the press had vetted anything about him. He could still be serving as a do nothing Senator from Illinois missing most of his votes.

    Democrats Accuse Ann Romney of ‘Mudslinging’

    Do you perceive Ann Romney as a “mudslinger”? Politico does.

    Democrats have, in fact, been taken aback by Ann Romney’s venture into the mudslinging of the campaign — instead of floating above the fray. She has given endless TV interviews — some of them a bit testy — and seems quite comfortable attacking the president. Most recently, Romney said “it’s time for the grown-up” to take over the country, blamed the Obama campaign for her husband’s low standing among Hispanics and boasted that Mitt Romney was going to save the country.

    “Michelle Obama could never get away with saying those things,” said a Democratic operative who has worked with spouses in presidential campaigns. “There would be an uproar.”

    That’s mudslinging?

    • votermom says:

      They are attacking Ann again? Because it worked so well the last times they did that (never worked a day and keeps expensive horses)?
      Dems are just brilliant strategerists. Brilliant.

    • angienc says:

      ORLY? I recall Michelle Obama saying she wanted to scratch Bill Clinton’s “eyes out” for his racist comments (that weren’t racist at all). I do not, however, recall any uproar, except from the Hillary supporters who were dismissed as “racist old hags.”

    • Karma says:

      From your link…..

      While they attack Ann for stating the obvious, her husband is competent. Grandma is being yanked out from under the bus and her typical white racism is being dusted off for the masses.

      And of course, Obama’s Grandma worked so what does Ann know about struggle? 🙄

      In 2008, Obama told her story; tonight, she will tell the president’s.

      The first lady will talk about the president’s childhood, his grandmother’s struggles in a male-dominated career and explain that when she married, the couple’s college loans combined were more than their mortgage.

      We can expect to hear lines like this one that she uttered at a recent campaign stop:

      “Your president is the son of a single mother who struggled to put herself through school and pay the bills. He’s the grandson of a woman who woke up before dawn every day to catch a bus to her job at a bank.”

    Incomplete = Fail

    Nothing says Winning ! like Dukakis 😀


    I voted for him in ’88 and he was defeated by a one term President.

  9. votermom says:

    It just occurred to me – if money is power, and we have to admit it is, than the GOP model of encouraging wealth and business is inherently more given to power-sharing than the Dem model of advocating for the powerless which is always about “give us your money and we’ll decide who gets it”.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I was certainly inspired by the GOP women’s speeches and the message of hard work and perseverance pays off. In contrast, I’m sure we’ll be hearing from lots of “Julias” who couldn’t have made it without free money 😉

  10. Lulu says:

    “Fifty percent of voters said they were “very unsatisfied” with Obama’s stewardship of the economy. Another 8 percent said they were somewhat unsatisfied.”

    “More voters in The Hill’s poll think Romney will win the fall election than think Obama will win — despite state-by-state polls that suggest the president would have an edge in a number of swing states if the election were held today.”

    I think the tipping point has been reached and it will be all downhill from now on. President Incomplete will likely go out of office that way. This is also why they are in such a damned hurry to buy a house in Hawaii this fall. He is going to have to get out of Dodge City fast.

    you know that old saying I would rather have root canal, well this guy would rather than stay for the convention
