The Democratic National Convention was rather interesting to watch. Joe Biden was fairly interesting, then Barack Obama gave a roaring speech. I was surprised though to see two Christian members give the opening and closing introduction.
Gabby Gifford gave the Pledge of Allegiance. I was moved by Gifford’s walk on to stage, then giving the pledge led by another congresswoman. I watched the faces of the thousands of Democratic supporters moved by the hard walk onto stage. That was one of the more moving times during the DNC.
Former Congresswoman Gabby Gifford was shot in the head by a would be assassin. Jared Loughner was declared mentally incompetent to stand trial. Though she survived, she was left brain damaged and couldn’t walk properly. Her walk on stage was moving and, then when she gave the allegiance it was moving to watch the supporters crying and cheering her on. That was truly a touching moment.
Bill Clinton gave a rousing speech. However, speeches simply don’t produce jobs.
Barack Obama in my opinion lived up to giving another excellent speech. If he wins another term, he will have to live up to more promises, and so far he hasn’t lived up to his ones four years ago.
Clinton told the crowd that Obama inherited a political legacy from Bush that was as bad as Franklin Roosevelt. The debt was higher, the war was drawn out and the housing crisis was a failure. Though the housing crisis stemmed from Bill Clintons housing bill, Obama is still trying to bridge partisan ties. His bipartisan committee is being shot down by the Republicans. The Republicans don’t seem to get it, you need to raise taxes, cut spending and put more money into the sector. That old saying, you need to spend money to make money isn’t a concept to the Republicans.
All I can say from Bill Clinton to Barack Obama and Gabby Giffords to Michelle Obama the Democrats have a sound leadership behind them. If they win another term they need to control congress to fix America.
