Confirmed: Line-up of speakers at Democratic convention is simply terrible

posted at 3:21 pm on August 31, 2012 by Allahpundit

Ace wrote about this yesterday but I didn’t have time to look at the list until now. Go see for yourself. I went through it being as objective as I could about who might be interesting to watch as a young, impressive, highly touted leader of the future in the Rubio, Ryan, Christie, Jindal, Susana Martinez, Rand Paul, Brian Sandoval, Mia Love mold. Out of a list of 75 or so names, here’s what I’ve got — and I’m stretching even on some of these, just so that I’ve got something.

– Cory Booker, who hasn’t held statewide office;
– Julian Castro, who also hasn’t held statewide office but apparently is the best Democrats can do by way of a Rubio-esque Latino political rising star;
– Tammy Baldwin, who’s far left even by the standards of the House Democratic caucus and is highly likely to lose to Tommy Thompson in this year’s Wisconsin Senate race;
– Kamala Harris, the AG of California and certified union stooge, who’ll likely follow Jerry Brown as Democratic administrator of the state’s Greece-like fiscal disintegration

That’s basically it. I’m a little curious to see Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy, just because he’s scrapped with Chris Christie a few times. And of course there’s Fauxcahontas, the great liberal hope of the future, who’s already 63 and has run a sufficiently dismal campaign that she’s trailing Scott Brown in the bluest of blue states. Beyond that, it’s nothing but no-names; exhausted party retreads a la Pelosi and Kerry; Charlie Crist and Linc Chafee for comic relief; and a few NARAL/Planned Parenthood types to remind America what’s really important with unemployment still stuck above eight percent. That’s what’s on tap this year from the Party of Youth and Fresh Ideas.

Exit question: Where’s Andrew Cuomo?

And Chrissy is secretly hurt a little that he isn’t on the speaker list but upbeat about covering the show.

Could be worse. They could just give Joe BidenopolusYamamotoBjorg the mic for three days.

Limerick on August 31, 2012 at 4:04 PM

You just know he could get through it, don’t you.
As long as he prefaced his speech with ” I make this short”

Booker is one of their few rising stars. He’s actually impressive.

I have a suspicion Hillary may end up being a surprise speaker at the DNC? The trip could be a ruse. Thoughts???

echosyst on August 31, 2012 at 4:03 PM

When you look at Hillary’s political position and Barry’s – they aren’t different. Barry will argue for solidarity and try to convince her it’s for the “good of the party.”

I guess it all boils down to: How does Hillary best position herself for a 2016 run? Be associated with Barry, or strike her own direction?

If she’s really concerned with her own well being, she would skip town altogether and hope the smell doesn’t follow her from Barry four years down the road, or she can play the gamble and hope her presence gives her the extra boost for her 2016 run.

Turtle317 on August 31, 2012 at 4:09 PM

Maybe they will have a hologram Osama Bin Laden to remind everybody that we got him?

ModerateMan on August 31, 2012 at 4:09 PM

I guess that none of the smart ones (if there are any) want to stay clear of the “chosen one”. I can’t say that I blame them. I’m surprised that Booker is speaking. I figured him for one of the smart ones. The best thing that they can do for Romney is to serve up as many far left loons as possible.

cajunpatriot on August 31, 2012 at 4:11 PM

Maybe Ballard and his remote sub doing an interview of the bastad.

AndrewsDad on August 31, 2012 at 4:11 PM

Tim Keene is speaking. Former VA Gov, current VA Dem Senate Candidate. He should be interesting

Greg Q on August 31, 2012 at 4:11 PM

OR maybe a holographic Joseph Stalin to extol the virtues of big government.

Even absent the meetings in Asia, I do not think members of a sitting Cabinet TYPICALLY attend conventions. While they are politcal appointees, a party convention is unseemingly political for their job obligations.

Cory Booker and CO. Gov. Hickenlooper are actually going to be near that cesspool? It will not bode well for their future as their opposition will def save it as ad material.

hillsoftx on August 31, 2012 at 4:17 PM

Just some ideas. Probably already been mentioned.

I was thinking Chris Matthews would do keynote.

Have a holographic image of Karl Marx talk about Obama.

Intermix some stories of women not being able to afford birth control, business men from Brazil could share how Obama’s investment in oil drilling there has really helped their economy compete against the US.

San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, who will be the first Latino keynote speaker at a Democratic National Convention

Julian Castro, who, please believe us, was not selected on the basis of race alone no matter how much we make it sound like he was.

Seriously. At this point, Dems, doesn’t calling someone out as a “first” just highlight how long it took you to get around to checking that box?

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi will also lead a presentation of the women of the House:
Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut
Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney of New York
Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez of New York
Congresswoman Gwen Moore of Wisconsin
Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz of Pennsylvania
Congresswoman Donna Edwards of Maryland
Candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives Joyce Beatty of Ohio
Candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii

Also receiving double billing on this list for no special reason: nobody. Did we mention how special it is that Nancy will be here with us tonight? Let’s read that whole part again, shall we?

Booker has a lot of ground to make up for his outburst of indignation earlier about the donk trashing of venture capital firms. He desperately needs to assure the brass he didn’t really mean it.

Andrew Cuomo is smart to stay away because he’s a smart guy. Not that I live in New York anymore, but he is doing a good job as Governor. Even if I don’t agree with everything he’s done there’s no questioning his competence, leadership, and not p***ing off non-politician people who disagree with him. He is a Democrat of Olde, before the Leftist haters (but I repeat myself) took over. He’s probably waiting for 2016 to run for President without having any of today’s Democrat garbage stink on him.

As I watched the uplifting, upbeat Republican convention with its variety of energetic and charismatic speakers, I began to wonder how many young stars the Democrats could trot out who could compare favorably with the Republicans. I could not think of one. Not even one.
The Democrat party is filled with old tired liberals who want to make The United States a country of serfs dependent on the government, without food or power or will. This will necessarily cause the continued decline of our country and a virtual stoppage of entrepreneurship and productivity, and yes, hope.
I cannot wait to watch these fools as they make their cases for free contraception and abortions and ‘shared wealth’ and government dependence. That is the future they envision. That is the future they are working toward. They will rule us in grand style while we struggle to get by.
They will lose. They are losers. Every one of them.

Haha, apparently Michael Moore wasn’t impressed with Eastwood’s invisible chair moment last evening, and he recounts this little story below in an article in daily beast today :)….looks like Eastwood is living rent free in this guy’s head too :)….

‘A few years ago, at the annual National Board of Review film awards held at Tavern on the Green in New York, I was there to hand out one of the honors. When it came time for Eastwood to accept his, he went up to the microphone and growled to me in front of the audience, “If you ever show up at my house with that camera, I’ll shoot you on sight.” The audience laughed, I laughed, but the person who issued the threat wasn’t laughing. That creeped me out a bit. I made sure never to go stand on Clint Eastwood’s lawn. ’

jimver on August 31, 2012 at 4:57 PM

Now hold on a minute! If you haven’t had the pleasure of hearing the illustrious and questionably articulate Gwen Moore from Milwaukee, WI you’re in for a treat! I only hope she is given a nice speaking role, ‘cuz there is no greater opposite to the wonderful Republicans we sent to the RNC convention. She’s sure to be good for a few laughs! She’s totally and utterly clueless! Oh, and check out her “green energy” son Supreme Solar Allah’s escapdes!

Moore’s own offspring, whom Wisconsin residents recognize as “Supreme Solar Allah“, is best known for his work as a political operative in the 2004 John Kerry campaign who was later convicted of slashing tires on Republican “get out the vote” vehicles.

Talking of Cuomo, the best political slogan I ever saw was hanging from a Long Island Expressway overpass during his father’s last campaign:

“Vote for Cuomo, we haven’t been punished enough.”

It perfectly highlighted his approach to governing.

Fred 2 on August 31, 2012 at 5:20 PM

and I’m stretching even on some of these, just so that I’ve got something.

That’s pretty sad and uninspiring. They also don’t have any suitable candidates with the guts to challenge Mr. President, which is why he gets handed the nomination unopposed. Can all the democratic politicians be so satisfied with the way he’s run things that they’re perfectly willing to settle for another 4 years with him, or are they just a bunch of lemmings willing to follow him off the cliff? Never mind, we know the answer to that. With a lot like this I sure don’t see a rising star emerging in their party for 2016, either.

My thinking was that the Democrats’ mystery speaker would be someone whose demographics lined up with the demographics that tend to vote Republican. In other words, someone who is male, white, older, Southern, and Evangelical Christian.

And I thought of one older white Southern, Evangelical Christian male who is a known Obama supporter and was expected to attend the convention. But looking at the schedule, I guess it’s not happening:

Former President Jimmy Carter (via video)
