DNC Speechifying, Part 2 – Compare to the RNC

Election 2016

Once again, there have been too many great speeches at the Democratic Convention to do them justice in a single podcast, so take some time and watch them here (these are in no particular order):

Mark Kelly and Gabby Giffords provided one of the greatest moments of the convention so far, and they have shown just how far we can go if we just want to:

One of the best speeches of the last couple of days was Rep. Joe Crowley of New York reminding us how effective Hillary Clinton was as a Senator post-9/11 and how much she cares about our heroes:

Jesse Jackson gave a more subdued speech than he gave in 1988, but there was still a lot that was interesting. He even gave a shout-out to Bernie Sanders:

Michael Bloomberg gave a great appeal to independents for enthusiastically supporting Hillary Clinton as the obvious choice for President:

One of the best speeches of the entire convention was the one VP Joe Biden gave. THIS is populism, folks, not that nationalist drivel Trump spouts:

VP Candidate Tim Kaine proved that he could motivate people and gave a great speech. Again, he showed what populism really is ( I also included the introductory video because it demonstrates the difference between Democrats and Republican):

And then, of course, there is the current President of the United States who will be missed. And how many times have you been able to say that in the last 40 or so years?

In the last 40 years I have had the thought “I will really miss him” about two Presidents: Barack Obama and the “other” Clinton. I hope it will be another 8 years before I will say that about Hillary.

Yesterday, former LOSING Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said on Meet the Press; “I worked as hard as I could after endorsing Hillary Clinton.” (Source) He is right about that. After he finally endorsed her, Bernie did work hard …

Once Again, Mark Penn Gets it Wrong

There is an editorial in this morning’s New York Times that is so full of shit, I had to comment. It starts with a really bad headline. “Back to the Center, Democrats.” The reason I hate the headline is because it doesn’t match reality. This is actually par for the …
