I really think the DNC ruined Obama’s reelection chances.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz is Chairman of the DNC. It seems her delegates are a bit more to the left than her base. I live in the south with the blue dog democrats, almost all are religious. Most are union and family people and God fearing. So why all the fluster at the DNC over Jerusalem and God? The DNC has moved to the left since electing Nancy Pelosi to the house. The Delegates are more and more left leaning and majority self identified liberal when the rest of us, those that live in reality when asked Identify as 20% liberal 40% conservative and 40% neither/undecided. Furthermore, 92 percent of Americans say they believe in God. So why did these amendments get stricken?
The liberal, anti-Christian, socialists coming out of the closet in masse. The Defense of Marriage act which most feel is the Religious “placing their faith on others”. Ignorant Religious or violent people claiming to be religious have done much harm in the name of their God(s). The anti Christian sentiment in particular among the far left is seething and it showed quite clear.
The problem is, their base doesn’t agree. Again 92% of the population believes in God. With that being said I think that Schultz made her “personal bubble” the democratic national stance. Moreover, I had never heard Obama say anything otherwise about Jerusalem or Israel. Why does this bother me? Because it bugs me when a politician states their opinion then people start using the platform as if the politician never even stated their opinion. You know kind of like all liberals saying Romney is going to try to force rape victims to carry to term, when he stated his specific opinion on the matter.
As an educated conservative, I do not believe Obama is Muslim. I do believe his life led him to be sympathetic towards those of Islamic faith and sympathy is never a bad thing in a Christian’s book.
Why? There are only 2 reasons for this, either the Bill Maher’s of the party ran ramshackle over the delegation votes and don’t realize they live in a little Hollywood bubble. Possibly, Schultz is trying to ruin Obama so Clinton gets a stain free record to run on in 2016. Clinton will be hard pressed to win if Obama has another 4 years in my opinion.
RWBD, why defend Obama?!?
Why am I defending Obama? He has lost the election through no fault of his own. Schultz singlehandedly will make Romney our next president.
A side affect, this is bothersome: This has been an opportunity for those like Alan West to put up false political ads stating that the dissenting votes were only about God, when it was about Jerusalem as well. The man standing up shouting “no” has an Arab American league shirt on, but they wouldn’t show you that. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNQuT2worqc&feature=youtu.be . We shouldn’t have to stretch the truth, we have won the election.
