Team O: Our convention is going to be way better than those artificial Republicans’

posted at 6:01 pm on August 31, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

Allahpundit already went through the list of speakers slated to grace center stage at the Democrats’ convention in Charlotte starting on Monday, and I have to add that I agree — even trying my damndest to genuinely put myself in progressives’ shoes, I think I’d have a tough time getting as equi-pumped about their team of A-listers than I do as a conservative about Susana Martinez, Bobby Jindal, etcetera. I mean, besides President Obama himself, kinda’-sorta’ on Bill Clinton, maybe Elizabeth Warren (my faux-liberal alter ego is workin’ real hard to get excited about that one), but I just don’t see anyone inducing the quite same level of inspiration as some of our rock-stars.

But, they’re never ones to let up on the braggadocio, and Team Obama is maintaining that the GOP’s convention was a swing and a miss, and their convention is the one that’s going to take the cake. Via Politico:

“Our goal next week is to bring the choice in the election into focus for the American people, and I think throughout the week, that choice will be crystal clear,” deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said. “Unlike Republicans who really just sought to tear down the president over the course of three days, you know, we’ll make an affirmative case for the president, but also an affirmative case for where we want to take the country and how we’ll strengthen the middle class.”

Senior adviser David Axelrod also tore into the GOP confab in Tampa, alleging it lacked specifics and wouldn’t produce a sizeable bounce in the polls because of it. …

“And the advantage we have is we’re not building our campaign on artifice,” he said, adding a not-so-veiled reference to previous charges the Obama camp has made that the RNC based its convention on falsehoods. “We’re building it on the causes and the themes that have animated Barack Obama’s life and that he’s been working for throughout his life and throughout his presidency, and we’re going to amplify those is this convention.”

Mmm hmm. For all of that just-tearing-down-the-president, only-base-appeal, and artificiality, have at the links.

And, by the way, one good turn deserves another:

“Our goal next week is to bring the choice in the election into focus for the American people, and I think throughout the week, that choice will be crystal clear,” deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said.

With THIS, I believe they will be successful. After Abortapalooza 2012 is over, I am confident most serious voters will say “what the Fluke was that?” And how is making a Jesuit university provide her with a rubber supposed to help me feed my family?

I can’t imagine speeches going on and on about abortion, rape, class warfare, Bain Capital and blaming Bush will convince many voters to vote for Obama. Don’t they have to give people something to vote for instead of a bunch of reasons why Romney is evil and racist? This isn’t 2008 where all you need is a cool slogan.

supernova on August 31, 2012 at 6:21 PM

I don’t see a single person on Obama’s speaking list that I would consider competent enough to hire for any job whatsoever (other than maybe Clinton and Booker). If people actually watched these things, I think it would have been clear that the Democratic party is completely devoid of any intellectual firepower. They are truly a purely a grievance party. Fortunately for the Democrats, nobody watches or seems to care. They are more worried about the Kardashians (did I spell that right? I still haven’t figured out who the hell those people are …).

“Our goal next week is to bring the choice in the election into focus for the American people, and I think throughout the week, that choice will be crystal clear,”

And then AFTER the election they will explain away their defeat while desperately attempting to ignore the idea that the American people understood that choice and rejected their message.

Because it’s not like you had the past six years (including the time you owned the House and Senate) to actually accomplish those goals.

Stephanie, here’s a clue: expounding upon the failures of your candidate when he’s had the past four years to do the things he is promising for the next four years is not “tearing him down”, it’s doing the job the MSM refuses to do and that the rest of America is seeing and experiencing.

I hope a lot of swing voters watch it, though. I really, really do. As far as I’m concerned, this train wreck next week is the best thing to happen to the Romney-Ryan campaign.

Inquiry: Where was the highly paid Obama genius either in Chitown or the WH who said THIS as soon as it was known exactly where Romney/Ryan would be scheduled today:

“Uh Mr President. Just thought I’d point out, sir that Romney and Ryan are scheduled to be in Virginia campaigning on Friday, and as you know sir we are on a multi day campaign tour of our own and also wedging in a trip to Ft Bliss.

So, like why dont we make a visit to an area of the country affected by Isaac and help with relief efforts.

If you decide to take any questions, members of the press are ready to ask you about the glaring and historic contrast between your brave noble caring self helping in the gulf vs your uncaring rich white guy opponents grubbing for votes while poor people drown.

This way we wont get jumped and embarrassingly caught off guard by Romney if he decides to change his schedule and visit the gulf.

We have the added advantage sir, of actually being responsible for the federal side of the disaster response, as was pointed out in an earlier draft of your daily briefing later redacted by order of Valerie Jarrett.”

Who on the WH/Chi team is supposed to recognize this stuff and not cause a monumental embarassment for themselves by missing the opportunity to make a trip to NOLA that might actually help and would certainly draw peoples $$ and attention to the crisis???

You know, not just to appear Presidential but to actually behave Presidentially.

Seriously. This lineup has done more than anything else to convince me that we have to replace Obama with Romney. This level of incompetence is scary. And more scary is that these people think that they are smart and know how to make decisions for us better than we know ourselves. As Reagan said, “Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.” And it’s worse now than it was then. Here is the murderers row of competency in our federal government: Obama, Biden, Holder, Reid, Pelosi. And the bench is on display in this DNC lineup. Figgin’ scariest thing I’ve ever seen.

Depending upon what else is on, I may watch simply for the comedic relief. Although I have to admit, it will be somewhat like pointing and laughing at the kids on the short bus; kind of mean, but then the kids on the short bus aren’t trying to run my life. The mentally challenged kids at the convention will be trying to do exactly that, so mocking them is fair game.

The worst thing you can do in combat is to underestimate you adversary.

Yes, the speaker line up for the DNC is pathetic. But the MSM will sell everyone of them as superstars.

Tradgically, too many voters get their information from the MSM and they will come away thinking that these speakers are the greatest thing since the invention of the wheel.

Until the MSM become fair and balanced, the average voters will never have an accurate vision of the political landscape.

In college and in law school, my friends and I would volunteer to work in the Democrat state and national conventions. Our business mission involved getting placed in the convention office headquarters where we could wreak havoc — as in sabotaging copiers, phone systems, and other office equipment, stop up the commodes, turn off the water or electricity, whatever we could to make the environment more challenging for the convention managers and attendees. We did all this pro-bono and basically for the fun of it.

At night, we would wine and dine with the crowd and of course get laid, the primary purpose, we learned, of a Democrat convention anyway. That was back when they had really pretty women who didn’t look like Sandra Fluke or those broads wearing faux-vaginas around their neck.

TXUS on August 31, 2012 at 6:40 PM

Don’t forget this ‘unfortunate timing’ of the Democrat Convention.

Thursday August 6th, President Obama gives his acceptance speech and boasts how much he has improved our employment situation. This is followed by wild cheers and the dropping of blown up condoms.

On Friday August 7th, the nation’s unemployment percentage is released. Curious as to how the MSM will report the unemployment numbers.

In college and in law school, my friends and I would volunteer to work in the Democrat state and national conventions. Our business mission involved getting placed in the convention office headquarters where we could wreak havoc — as in sabotaging copiers, phone systems, and other office equipment, stop up the commodes, turn off the water or electricity, whatever we could to make the environment more challenging for the convention managers and attendees. We did all this pro-bono and basically for the fun of it.

At night, we would wine and dine with the crowd and of course get laid, the primary purpose, we learned, of a Democrat convention anyway. That was back when they had really pretty women who didn’t look like Sandra Fluke or those broads wearing v@ginas around their neck.

Rahm Emanuel will introduce the Free Style Shooting Team for the Chicago Olympic to the DNC Convention.

Can’t wait for the DNC’s “Roads & Bridges” convention. How exciting!?

“We’re building it on the causes and the themes that have animated Barack Obama’s life and that he’s been working for throughout his life and throughout his presidency, and we’re going to amplify those is this convention.”

Obama needs to go bold! His mystery speaker should be Hugo Chavez, so Obama can provide a clear dividing line, a clear choice between old fashion American Ideals and Obama’s Neo-Marxism.

That was really funny.

I thought the adults were in charge??? I cant wait for the debates and for Obama to utter the phrase “I know you are, but what am I?” or “Nanny, nanny, boo boo, stick your head in doo doo, Im better than you.”

And the advantage we have is we’re not building our campaign on artifice,” [Senior adviser David Axelrod] said, adding a not-so-veiled reference to previous charges the Obama camp has made that the RNC based its convention on falsehoods. “We’re building it on the causes and the themes that have animated Barack Obama’s life and that he’s been working for throughout his life and throughout his presidency, and we’re going to amplify those is this convention.

.
.
causes and themes … Not artifice?
.
… ok, perhaps they’re actually styrofoam … perhaps they’re edifice?
.
… unfortunately, we’ve all seen that things based on styrofoam don’t turn out well … (with apologies to a certain Republican who originated this line …)
.
.
.
Axelrod’s statement reads like he doesn’t get much sleep these days.
.
I suppose evading Jurassic Val is a full-time job … plenty of overtime …

I think you missed the daily benedictions and invocations by the various Imams.

We will watch the last two nights on C-SPAN. My son has to report on current events each week. This week we watched the last two nights of speeches at the RNC and he did a report on Mitt’s speech. I want him to watch the Democrats and see the difference. I just hope it’s appropriate for kids under 14, but I’m not holding my breath. And, I think their mystery guest speaker will be Ellen Degeneres.

txhsmom on August 31, 2012 at 6:57 PM

Oh, I just don’t know if I can watch it !!
Struggling, because I sort of want to .. who among the HotAirians has the stomach to watch & report, live ??

Sounds like it’ll be like Oprah in NOLA, 2005, and that just turns my stomach.
Oy.

pambi on August 31, 2012 at 6:10 PM

Since I have a craving for the ridiculous, I volunteer. This is going to be a laff riot from start to finish. Don’t know if I can report. Probably will be too busy laughing. What a collection of fools!

If only we could get:

Chris “Tingles” Matthews and Joe “Stand Up Chuck” Biden to narrate the ENTIRE thing………

I’d pay a $39.99 Pay-Per-View fee for that…………

Orville Redenbacker could surpass Apple’s iAnything’s profits in one night alone……..

How about those guys that would pound on the bongos all day long during occupy, they would be perfect for the dnc.

One-upmanship:

The RNC had only one empty chair, onstage for Clint Eastwood to talk to.

The DNC will have a whole stadium full of empty chairs. So there.
