Kerry sounded bitter as the guy who didn't become potus.

funny part is on Fox Brint Hume was talking into a commerical break and he said "that is one of the most overrated political parties.." and was cut off.

So true Brint, So true.

So clearly English isn't your first language if that was what you took from him directly saying, Hey this guy has done everything he can to do to cooperate with every rival he has. Even pointing out that even though he and Hillary waged a fierce fight in an impossibly close primary and still appointed some of her backers and Hillary herself to positions in his cabinet. Sounds an awful lot like the child that need to be told to work with others. This President has done nothing but attempt to work with a Congress that acts like a two year old who just discovered how to say No. It doesn't matter what policy it is, no matter how much sense it makes, no matter how good it may or may not be they just say No. And that wouldn't be so awful if when they were saying No they had a plan of their own.

Unlike certain other posters I don't think the Republican Party consists of low IQ's they are just intentionally thick headed living in lala land.


Oh, my....you're not very good reading nuance, are you. Go back and watch Clinton's speech again. He used the typical style of argument by first offering praise for something....anything that will make the audience (including Obama) comfortable and accepting. He throws you off guard. Then, he proceeded with nuanced chastisement. Very artful when you know what he is aiming for.

I'm interested to hear the tone of Obama's speech. He seems to have curbed the optimism/hope undertones from '08, but still speaks with a stark difference from Romney.

Romneys acceptance speech carried a tone of disappointment. He sounded to me like a football coach of a team that just lost in the playoffs and had to tell his players to look forward to next year while at the same time making it known they fell short. Romney seems to be majority reserved or disappointed with peaks of American exceptionalist rhetoric, while Obama is the opposite: majority optimism and hope with qualifying lulls of the situation is still bad for many and work remains to be done.

No B.F.D. at the D.N.C.: Democrats Bump Biden From Primetime


Democrats bumped their gaffe-prone Vice President, Joe Biden, from primetime on Thursday night to ensure he does not say anything that bigfoots President Barack Obama's address to the Democratic National Convention.

In Biden's stead, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), the bland senator who will do no harm, will introduce Obama before one of the most important addresses of Obama's career.


www.breitbart.com...


Now I really wanted to hear Biden go off script, so disappointing. (but really, if Biden can't be trusted to deliver a speech, how can he be trusted to take over the white house if the need arises?)

Joseph Goebells would be proud of that Biden film.

Serious piece of propaganda there.

People should recognize the voice of the narrator he does just about every film out there.

Palin gave rousing speeches which the crowd loved. Your point?

Look, it's the vice president.

What happened?
But buh buh Breitbart said..........

I think we can all put Breitbart to bed as the lying Goebells-esque site that it is. The man is dead and it goes strong! Polarized garbage from beyond the grave. That's some serious propaganda for ya.

It might also be due to the fact that the prime-time coverage on ABC and CBS is only one hour long. Last night, Clinton's speech took the whole hour with a bit of commentary at the end. The first night, Castro and Mrs. Obama seemed to use the time more wisely...or it might have actually been two hours that first night...I can't remember...but last night just an hour and tonight the same. Clinton's 28 minute speech turned into a 48 minute one and from what I understand, Obama's got a lot to say.

Gotta remember to count all the I's and the ME's and the WE's!

Personally, I don't have any interest in hearing Joe Biden speak. I'm sure the rest of the prime-time viewers feel their hour would be best spent hearing the President's speech...because Biden comes with Obama by default if elected...no need for exposure, I don't think...if you dig.

I'm speculating, but I think if politicians took all the money spent on makeup and applied it to the deficit, we'd be in better shape.

Or maybe propping up the attractiveness of our leaders is a soft power tactic and beneficial in foreign affairs.

It might be best not to know about all the hidden warts and moles...

After reading that link again...I just remembered that today I overheard on the CBS news on my mom's tv...that Mrs. Obama and Mrs. Biden would be introducing their respective husbands tonight before their speeches...but your source says that it was Biden to introduce Obama now replaced by Durbin....so...is Jill Biden introducing Durbin now followed by Michelle introducing the President?

Or what?
Someone must be misinformed...either CBS or the venerable breitbart.com...I wait with baited breath to see what's what.

Listen to Biden go....

Obama saved the whole world from economic collapse.

I wonder what's next? "I was there when Obama jumped into that phone booth and came out Superbama. I was there as he flew up high and saved that cat from a tree!"

I think everyone was so enamored with Obama in '08 that few looked into Biden at length. I know I didn't.

I didn't even know this stuff until I just looked at his bio on whitehoue.gov



Then, at age 29, he became one of the youngest people ever elected to the United States Senate.

Just weeks after the election, tragedy struck the Biden family, when Biden's wife, Neilia, and their 1-year old daughter, Naomi, were killed and their two young sons critically injured in an auto accident. Vice President Biden was sworn in to the U.S. Senate at his sons' hospital bedside and began commuting to Washington every day by train, a practice he maintained throughout his career in the Senate.



Maybe that's how the Vatican or whoever persuaded him to follow the agenda.

I need to find my earplugs.

Biden is just hard to listen to.

He speaks loud and then speaks low. Just trying to hard to find symphathy.

I noticed something odd about this speech.

As Biden blabs on and on about killing Bin Laden, notice how he ended that part with, "One man! One man did that!"

Now wait a second.... One man did that? Last month Obama gave us the "You didn't build that speech" although the quote was taken out of context, how can Biden say one man killed Bin Laden? Did Obama even leave the White House for that?

New Flash Joe... One man didn't do that. Obama didn't do that on his own. He had plenty of help! He didn't build that Joe!!

Obviously, you're too young to remember the televised JFK/Nixon debate...Kennedy won the election, even though he was a Catholic ( big "taboo" back then ) largely because he used make-up and looked vital and healthy, as compared to a pasty, sweaty, and washed-out looking Nixon, who refused to.
Make-up has been a staple for politicians ever since.

He's the biggest liability on the ticket.

Washington types say he is so fantastic but, to me, he comes across as a drunk uncle talking politics at Christmas.

Word is Ryan has spent 60 plus hours preparing for the debates...I don't even know if I have the stomach to tune in for that cage match....

What does the Vatican have to do with his personal story? It's old news, and was trotted out for the previous 2008 election. How did you manage to miss it?

Yeah, I winced at seeing that Ryan and Biden would be debating...it might be surprising, however...I don't know if I will watch the VP debate but I'm really looking forward to Obama and Romney's debate. I hope the points for discussion are meaningful in a real sense rather than pundit-ish type topics.
