I have been watching the DNC shindig on PBS for the past hour and I thought, what the hey, let’s live blog it!
The Barackstar himself is coming on stage soon. Right now, we are watching an intro video.
Get ready for some serious hope-changerrificness!
10:08 PM Trying to stay awake for this video.
10:11 PM A sea of “change” placards, as Obama enters – finally that video is over.
10:17 PM Okay, that was cute when his daughters waved at him.
10:19 PM Our government was not created to help you pay your bills. Geeze. I can’t stand this stuff.
10:23 PM The fundamentals of our economy are strong. We are a nation of whiners. (Noting the exceptions doesn’t change that.)
10:29 PM Ooh, ooh! I just saw the Vermont delegation sign. (Can you tell I am getting bored?)
10:30 PM What promise? I was just wondering that same thing!! How does he plan to make these things happen? He is promising that people will be decent and employers will be good to workers. Those are character issues. How does a president make people have good character? Any way I can think of is pretty darn scary.
Good, he’s going to spell it out. Tax code that rewards people who crate good jobs in America. (Wait, isn’t that what Democrats in Vermont are always criticizing?) End dependence on Middle Eastern oil in 10 years. I love how he just pointed out how long McCain has been in the Senate. Is he not aware that Biden has been in the Senate even longer than McCain?
Did he just say nuclear? He does realize that liberals hate nuclear, right?
10:35 PM How is he going to make sure that jobs cannot be outsourced?
10:36 PM Expand early education, hire an army of new teachers, pay them more. Where is this bottomless money pit he is going to tap?
10:39 PM Of course, he will close corporate loop holes and go through the budget line by line to find that missing money that no previous president could ever find! Brilliant. Why hasn’t anyone ever thought of that?
10:42 PM Government can’t replace parents, yet school needs to start younger. Whatever. I can’t listen to this swill. Wake me when he says something interesting. I am going to go hang out with my husband.
Sorry, my first live blogging experience did not work out so well. Maybe I will have better luck live blogging the RNC convention.
If you are just dying to read a right-wing woman live blog this speech, head on over to Right Wing News and read Melissa Clouthier’s post.
Good night and God bless!
