Another night at the DNC

Main ImageWhat Republican Speechwriter Did Obama Hire For Last Night’s Address?   "If you managed to stick around for the entire Barack Obama speech last night, you surely caught the naked appeal he made to persuadable Republican voters not happy with Donald Trump as the nominee. The guess is you’re going to hear something fairly similar from Hillary Clinton tonight.
. . . 
"And last night it was Obama’s mission to do two things – first, to sew up as much of that 10 percent of stray Democrat vote, most of which is Hard Left Bernie Sanders support that at the moment is split about halfway between Jill Stein and Gary Johnson (for all the Democrats who crossed over and voted in GOP primaries, very little of it appears headed Trump’s way at this point), and second to position the Democrats square in the conventional middle in American politics." . . .
How many times did Obama refer to himself while praising Hillary at the DNC?  "Skilled Obama watchers know that the real subject of any Obama speech is his own magnificence.  But in case you weren’t clicking a counter held in your hand to note every time the first-person pronoun appeared in a speech by Obama ostensibly about someone else, the good folks at Grabien put together a compilation video."  119 times

Obama’s Final Revenge: The Accidental Destruction of Hillary Clinton  . . . "A majority of Americans think Trump is running to help America. They think Hillary is running to help Hillary. 
"That’s Hillary’s fault. 
"But more important, it’s Barack Obama’s fault, and the Left’s fault." . . .
. . . "So Hillary is now trotting out the “Mothers of the Movement” — Black Lives Matter activists including the mother of attempted cop-killer Michael Brown — to promulgate myths about police racism."

Giuliani: Uniformed Police Officers Not Allowed on Democratic Convention Floor
. . . “ 'This is the most anti-police, anti-law enforcement convention I’ve ever seen in my whole life. There was not a uniformed police officer allowed on the convention floor. I was told that by four high-ranking police officers, two of whom I’ve known for a very long time. And then I walked the floor for very long time and I couldn’t find a single officer. Go look at your footage.  You find me a uniform. Hillary Clinton didn’t want uniformed police officers on the convention floor.' ” . . .

Israeli/American Flags Burned By Leftists Outside DNC  "Assorted leftists danced while burning Israeli and American flag outside the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday in Philadelphia, PA. At various points, chants of "intifada" were heard in support of the "Palestinian" national movement." . . .

#DNCProtest: The Real Story of Night 3 at the DNC!  . . . "#NeverHillary and #DemExit activists were streaming continuous videos of protests against Hillary Clinton’s rigged nomination through the speeches. I must say, their efforts were far more interesting and informative."
. . . "Listening to these demonstrators, it is clear that they are far more upset about the rigged primary season than they are about Donald Trump. No amount of Obama lecturing is going to change the feeling that Hillary Clinton stole the nomination.
I predict even more robust demonstrations will occur tonight, when Hillary Clinton takes the stage…especially in light of the Wikileaks voicemails that have just been released."

Bill Clinton’s big convention lie  . . . "Tuesday night, in Bill Clinton’s sorcery, we saw the core of amorality that has corrupted both of the Clintons’ public lives for decades.  He actually believes that words have no natural allegiance to the truth.  You can say whatever you need so say, twist or omit facts to your end, and steal from others to mythologize self." 

Political Cartoons by Gary Varvel

Roger Simon at PJ Media calls the speech "Sad, Surreal".
. . . "But there was Bill, putting his best face on it, trying to get his wife elected president of the United States by painting this romantic picture of their first encounter, as if it were a Hollywood "cute meet" out of Bringing Up Baby, the couple set to live happily ever after, when we all know their marriage quickly evolved into a kind of cold-blooded business partnership, if it was ever much of a marriage in the first place."'. . . 

"But I wonder. Surely they must know this marriage is a sham, those over thirty anyway. Are Bill's serial and compulsive adulteries just part of his charm? It can't be that I was the only one thinking about this. I bet almost everyone was, trying to make peace with it on some level." . . .

From Debbie Schlussel: What Did You Think of Bill Clinton’s DNCon Speech? Here’s My Take: Willie No Longer Slick

. . . "Say what you will about the formerly Slick and always sleazy Willy. Regardless of being a lowlife, he was always a good speaker and able to charm the pants off of everyone, not just the women. Not last night. There was no charm, no magic, and frankly no structure whatsoever to his speech. I felt like I was listening to the annoying passenger on the plane who keeps talking when everyone wishes the person would just shut the bleep up." . . .
