News for the 2012 DNC Convention below :

The 2012 Democratic party will officially adopt an extreme position on the issue of abortion on Tuesday. According to a copy of the party platform, which was released online just before midnight on Monday,“The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay.”

That last part–”regardless of ability to pay”–is an endorsement of taxpayer-funded abortions, a policy that President Obama has personally endorsed. Obama wants Medicaid to pay directly for elective abortions, and Obamacare will allow beneficiaries to use federal subsidies to purchase health care plans that cover elective abortions. According to a 2009 Quinnipiac poll, 72 percent of voters oppose public funding of abortion and 23 percent support it. In other words, public funding of abortion–a policy President Obama actively supports–is as unpopular as banning abortion in the case of rape, a policy on which the media have focused much attention over the past two weeks despite the fact that neither presidential candidate supports it.

Why should it matter what the majority's wishes are ? It doesn't to Dims.

Number of Americans On Food Stamps Hits Record High, 46.7 Million People…

Food-stamp use reached a record 46.7 million people in June, the government said, as Democrats prepare to nominate President Barack Obama for a second term with the economy as a chief issue in the campaign.

Participation was up 0.4 percent from May and 3.3 percent higher than a year earlier and has remained greater than 46 million all year as the unemployment rate stayed higher than 8 percent. New jobless numbers will be released Sept. 7.

“Too many middle-class families who have fallen on hard times are still struggling,” Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in an e-mailed statement today.“Our goal is to get these families the temporary assistance they need so they are able to get through these tough times and back on their feet as soon as possible.”

Food-stamp spending, which has more than doubled in four years to a record $75.7 billion in the fiscal year ended Sept. 30, 2011, is the USDA’s biggest annual expense. Republicans in Congress have criticized the cost of the program, and the House budget plan approved in April sponsored by Representative Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the party’s vice-presidential nominee, would cut expenses by $33 billion over 10 years.

Mission accomplished Obama , more dependent on the Government

Democrats Remove All References To “God” From Party Platform…

The Democratic Party may be getting a fair amount of attention this week — and not only because the political movement is hosting its national convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. Another point of focus has already been the contents — or the lack thereof — present in the 2012 Democratic Party Platform.

Earlier today, we told you that the document fails to mention Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a proclamation that was previously touted by the party. And now, in an even more shocking revelation, CBN News is reporting that the Democrats have removed mentions of “God” from the document as well.

This is a departure from the past. In 2008, the platform read (emphasis added),“We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.”

Who needs GOD when you have........

Democrats are poised to avoid the danger of President Barack Obama accepting his party’s nomination before a partially-empty stadium by shifting his speech to an indoor arena and citing ‘severe weather’.

The Obama campaign have been working desperately to ensure that the 74,000-seater Bank of America stadium in Charlotte would be filled.

Buses for students from across North Carolina and even members of black churches in neighboring South Carolina have been arranged.

"Hoping" for a full house but "change" the size of the house.

Now that's " Hope & Change " at it's best.

$ 16,007,173,630,323 National Debt and counting at the start of the DNC Convention.

$ 10.6 Trillion when Obama took office , to be fair.

Added over 5 trillion SINCE ELECTED.

Quiet an accomplishment in 3 - 1/2 years !

An "Incomplete" grade ( as Obama stated ) for the first 3-1/2 years is a understatement but we are used to these types of comments from Obama.

Baghdad Bob: Religious Freedom Included In Democratic Platform Replaces Word “God”…

Robert Gibbs, a senior adviser for President Obama’s campaign, ducked questions on Tuesday regarding whether or not the word “God” was deliberately left out of the Democratic Party platform.

“There’s talk throughout the platform about faith and religion and I think that’s what’s important,” Gibbs told CNN.

The platform, released late Monday, does not include the word “God,” although it does refer twice to freedom of religion and religious tolerance.

Gibbs said the references to religion “lets people understand and know what this party is all about.”

But pressed to say whether the omission was deliberate, Gibbs shied away.

“I know there’s thousands of God-fearing Democrats here tonight,” Gibbs said, counting himself among them.“A lot of us here believe in a higher power.”

Lamest excuse ever.

Breaking: Democrats To Update Platform To Include Reference To Jerusalem As The Capital of Israel – Update: God Added Back In, Delegates Boo Inclusion…

(CNN)- Democrats will update their party’s platform Wednesday evening at their convention to include a reference to Jerusalem being the capital of Israel, which was not included in their platform this year but was in previous platforms, Democratic sources told CNN.

The vote is expected to take place by acclamation shortly after the convention is gaveled in to order at 5 p.m. ET, the sources said.

The 2008 platform read,“Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel. The parties have agreed that Jerusalem is a matter for final status negotiations. It should remain an undivided city accessible to people of all faiths.”

But that language was not included in the 2012 platform, which was released earlier this week and adopted by the party at the convention on Tuesday.

Republicans have criticized Democrats for the move, with GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan saying Wednesday that “it undermines our nation’s support for our ally, Israel.”

Update: And the PR disaster rolls on. Note the multiple votes needed to pass the changes.

On the eve of Bill Clinton’s address to the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) on Tuesday confirmed that President Barack Obama did in fact change the rules in Bill Clinton’s landmark Welfare Reform Act despite the Obama administration’s claims to the contrary.

The GAO said the Obama administration should give Congress an opportunity to block the tweaks it made to the law.

“It must be submitted to Congress and the comptroller general before taking effect,” GAO general counsel Lynn H. Gibson wrote to lawmakers on Tuesday.

In July, the Obama administration gutted the work requirements in the welfare law by giving states more latitude to get waivers for the work requirements or define “work” in a way that would allow those on welfare to receive benefits while doing things like going to fitness classes, which states could define as “work.”

No need to work for anything as long as Obama is President , he and the government will give you everything needed by taking it away from WORKING PEOPLE.

Is this really what America needs ?

Sitting on your ass drawing welfare with no mandate to work.

Damn sad !!

Dem Pandering Hits A New Low, Illegal Immigrant To Speak At DNC…

Tonight, for the first time, an undocumented immigrant will speak at a national political convention. Benita Veliz was brought to Texas from Mexico by her parents when she was 8 years old. She was threatened with deportation in 2009 after rolling through a stop sign and getting stopped by police.

An activist for the DREAM Act, which would grant permanent residency to some immigrants who graduate from U.S. high schools, Veliz was spared deportation last fall. President Obama, by executive order, subsequently stopped the deportation of some illegal immigrants who were brought to the country as children and allow them to apply for work permits. That policy went into effect in August.

Aunt Zedia is now safe living illegally in OUR country off our tax dollars too.

Thanks Obama !

“WOOF WOOF WOOOOOOOOOOO!!! ”

Dems booing GOD being restored to the Democratic platform.

Why does this not surprise anyone.

From the sound of the vote , didn't sound like a 2/3 majority.

Just another example of something being rammed down the others throat but this time , their own kind. DEMOCRATS.

Very fitting.

It takes a real dumbass to support this B/S

Lib Hero Sandra Fluke Argues Insurance Companies Should Be Forced To Pay For Sex-Change Operations…

In an academic article published last year, contraception advocate Sandra Fluke made the case that private health insurers should be required to pay for sex change operations.

Fluke has become a vocal surrogate of the
Democratic Party and is scheduled to address the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., Wednesday night. On Tuesday afternoon she appeared at a Planned Parenthood “Yes We Plan” rally outside the convention venue, where condoms in anti-Republican packaging were distributed.

She thrust herself into the media spotlight in February when she told the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee that many of her Georgetown Law School classmates were without birth control pills because the university’s insurance plan was not forced to cover it.

Not only does this crazy byoitch want US to pay for her birth control , now pay for SEX-CHANGES .

You Dims sure have a bunch of winners speaking at the convention....LMOA

I need some help here people, why do you raise hell about birth control and then raise hell because female's get pregnant? Wouldn't birth control be much less expensive? I would think you should be saying "make sure they have birth control".
