The Keynote speaker at the DNC, Julian Castro started out eviscerating Romney with quotes like this:
“We all understand that freedom isn’t free. What Romney and Ryan don’t understand is that neither is opportunity. We have to invest in it,” Castro said. “Republicans tell us that if the most prosperous among us do even better, that somehow the rest of us will too. Folks, we’ve heard that before.” Really?! So big and bigger government of Obama’s is going to fix everything, huh? How come it hasn’t worked so far? Oh, he has the answer to that too. “It isn’t a sprint, or even a marathon but a relay.” (I guess that’s why Obama needs another term to finish his job of ruining America.) Then he goes on to say “Our families don’t cross the finish line in a generation….Why the hell not? Because they aren’t expected to, without government assistance in their lives. His speech continues on in this vein blaming Romney and stating that he “doesn’t get it”. I think Obama doesn’t get it. He says Romney is wrong for suggesting to college students to borrow money from their parents to start a business, perhaps he was trying to suggest that as an alternative to high interest money lender or as an alternative if they weren’t able to get a loan! Talk about taking things out of context, huh? I don’t think he was suggesting that everybody should start a small business, and that every family would have the money to finance their child, but if it was a viable alternative, why not turn to your family first before a bank?
During Michelle Obama’s speech she may have let slip her true belief of sharing the wealth with this little quote “And he (Obama) believes that when you’ve worked hard, and done well, and walked through that doorway of opportunity … you do not slam it shut behind you…you reach back, and you give other folks the same chances that helped you succeed.” . . what does that really mean? As if he has, I guess? Through his wisdom and largess.
“I love that for Barack, there is no such thing as “us” and “them” – he doesn’t care whether you’re a Democrat, a Republican, or none of the above … he knows that we all love our country … and he’s always ready to listen to good ideas … he’s always looking for the very best in everyone he meets.” Really . . .that’s why he worked so well with Republicans, reaching across the aisle I guess?
“And I love that even in the toughest moments, when we’re all sweating it – when we’re worried that the bill won’t pass, and it seems like all is lost – Barack never lets himself get distracted by the chatter and the noise.” He doesn’t listen to the American people and their opinion no matter how much they do NOT want ObamaCare for example!
These were just some of the examples I found combative and irritating, but I expected no less from the DEMS. I will admit both speeches were rousing! Hopefully, the Independents and undecideds won’t fall for the Party Line!
I can’t wait for Clinton’s speech tonight!
