Dem convention, night one: Abortion, more abortion, Julian “Who?” Castro, FLOTUS

posted at 6:01 pm on September 4, 2012 by Allahpundit

Here’s the hourly schedule. Even by the dreary standards of this convention’s line-up, tonight is especially dreary. Put it this way: From 7 p.m. until 10, arguably the most interesting speaker is … Linc Chafee. Get out your drinking-game bingo cards now because there’s no way you’ll make it through this without them.

Tonight’s strategy: Make sure every core constituency is well-pandered-to right out of the chute. It’s “clientelism” on parade. Somewhere, Jay Cost is smiling:

If there’s a theme to tonight’s speaking lineup here at the first day of the Democratic convention, it’s a nod to all the important voting and demographic blocs of the Obama coalition. Women? You have First Lady Michelle Obama, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, and Lilly Ledbetter. Latinos? Keynote speaker Julian Castro and Rep. Xavier Becerra. African Americans? The first lady and Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx. Why is tonight’s coalition night so important for Democrats? Because they are facing an enthusiasm gap — at least compared to 2008 — with these voting blocs. In the Aug. 2012 NBC/WSJ poll, just 52% of voters under 35 and only 49% of Latinos expressed high interest in the upcoming election, which was down about 20 points for both groups at this same point in ’08. That said, almost all voting segments in the poll — Democrats and Republicans alike — aren’t as interested as they were in 2008. So this is the opportunity that the Democratic convention represents for the Obama camp and Democrats: maybe a final chance to rekindle some of the 2008 magic. If Mitt Romney had to close his likeability gap at last week’s GOP convention, Barack Obama and the Democrats this week have to close the enthusiasm gap.

The most important Democratic constituency gets its pander nice and early when top union crony/SEIU president Mary Kay Henry speaks at some point between 6:15 and 6:45 ET. Nancy Keenan, the president of NARAL, gets a more prominent spot shortly after 8 p.m. to get the “war on women” crapola rolling. I wonder if we’ll hear the phrase “safe, legal, and rare” 20 times this week or if the new base-minded Democratic Party has finally dispensed with that lie once and for all. They really should. Much like economic growth, it’s a relic of the Clinton era. Be who you are, guys.

Amusing footnote: Leader-of-the-future Cory Booker has been relegated to the 6 p.m. hour instead of primetime, presumably because of his famous oopsie about Bain on “Meet the Press.” Normally I’d lament that, but seeing as how he went full jackhole this morning to push the Democrats’ racism messaging against the GOP, I don’t care anymore. Besides, tonight’s designated leader of the future is Julian Castro, who’s going to deliver a 15-minute address on the immigrant experience and becoming a success in America. (If that sounds familiar, it should. Castro is transparently counterprogramming for Rubio, who’s already a national figure and a threat to siphon off some of the Democrats’ Latino base.) If there’s one thing the left needs, it’s another young inexperienced pol with few accomplishments who gets by on soaring rhetoric and charisma. Expect plenty of fawning profiles tomorrow, all hitting the same tired notes.

Booker’s speaking on C-SPAN as I write this, so let’s get the thread up now. If you get bored while watching, here’s Choom Gang alumnus Barack Obama enjoying a little pothead humor while taking a break from cracking down on potheads nationwide. Exit quotation: “Girls, get your abortions NOW in case the Republicans win.”

M.O. gave a rather hollow presentation. On the order of convincingness and emotiveness, I’d rate it a cheap high school play.

Well, to be fair, when you’re married to and having to sleep next to an empty chair every night, I guess she might feel the need to spice things up a bit. One thing’s for sure, and I’ve had a few of those regrettable nights in my life, there’s no way to drink that woman pretty.

TXUS on September 4, 2012 at 11:51 PM

From Big MO’s speech:

My Dad was our rock. Although he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in his early thirties, he was our provider, our champion, our hero. As he got sicker, it got harder for him to walk, it took him longer to get dressed in the morning. But if he was in pain, he never let on. He never stopped smiling and laughing – even while struggling to button his shirt, even while using two canes to get himself across the room to give my Mom a kiss. He just woke up a little earlier, and worked a little harder.

Did she really say that? Basically – “my Dad had MS just like Anne Romney, and he did something romantic for his wife just like George Romney?” What small, petty people they are. I wish I was shocked – but it is completely not surprising.

1. Horrible dress. MO tends to wear shiny tight dresses in hideous fabrics. It was exactly like the dress a stripper tosses off, or like some kind of workout wear. The color was washed out and the cutout does not flatter her, though she thinks it does, emphasizing her flat chest and well padded shoulders and arms. Ugh. Horrible shoes too.

2. Wig. Sigh. What was that piece of the wig sticking out on the side? Distracting.

3. Speech. Pretty much the same speech she made four years ago. she and BO shtruggled therefore he should be Presdent. Nothing new.

None of the speakers tonite including MO answered the question, are you better off than you were four years ago? That’s the question and it’s the only question. Nothing else matters.

Ford is down as well but that doesn’t mean Ford is going bankrupt. It may be asking too much for you to realize that stock market valuations over the short-term are not great indicators of long-term success. Then again, you prefer to ignore the income statement and balance sheet.

bayam on September 4, 2012 at 11:35 PM

I never said that market valuation point to long term success…

The company has proved that’s business model has not worked and nothing has changed…

The balance sheet is increasing in debt and has big holes in it…

EPS estimates are dropping like a stone (which why trailing EPS is always the most accurate to get the PE)…

Most importantly the market is telling you the stock is broken, listen to the money flow, everything else is secondary…

The American people will not get there money back on his GM deal…

If you are long the stock, I suggest you sell or else you will be getting out at zero…

Is that right… no changes in the way the company is organized and run. Fascinating.

The balance sheet is increasing in debt and has big holes in it…

Do you now hot read a balance sheet? Where are the holes?

EPS estimates are dropping like a stone (which why trailing EPS is always the most accurate to get the PE)…

Not true.

The American people will not get there money back on his GM deal…

Yes, no fed taxes or income tax collected from a company that generates $160 bil in annual revenue. A total loss.

If you are long the stock, I suggest you sell or else you will be getting out at zero…

Yes, Warren Buffet is an idiot. Same for the analysts at foreign banks such as USB with no domestic conflict of interest. Your analysis sounds so much more comprehensive.

Moochelle’s speech read off the teleprompter almost made everyone forgets her imperial ways in the past 4 years, her taking off in a separate jet to Martha Vineyard a couple of hours early to begin her vacation, the half a million dollar jaunt to Spain, etc, etc. When you are concerned about losing all those perks, you’ll be crying too.

Estimates for YE 2012 have fallen from 3.49 to 3.15 and for YE 2013 from 4.58 to 3.98. you described this 10% change as ‘falling like a rock’. Ford’s estimates have fallen at a far greater rate, so you’ll have to invent another term to describe its situation.
Weakness in the global economy will continue to be reflected in automaker’s earnings estimates going forward. It does not suggest that either company will fail.

I don’t think you will find one hedge fund that is bullish on this stock

Other than Berkshire? Does buying the stock indicate bullishness?

Tweeting and actually going to the polls to vote are entirely two different things. Posting a tweet is a lazy endeavor, voting requires a lot more action, as in showing up somewhere to actually vote, which requires a lot more enthusiasm than posting a tweet.

Also, you can buy tweets and facebook followers for pennies per from the companies that offer these services. Wouldn’t put much stock in such things, as a result.

I’ve never lived in that city – I live in one of the little cities trying to keep San Antonio from growing larger.

His mother hated the Alamo and all that it stands for. His parents were never married.

He only had a 1210 on his SAT’s and has ridden the government apron strings getting into Stanford University through affirmative action when all other students “accepted on their own merits” scored above 1800. Heck the average SAT score is 1538.

His mother was Obama’s mother, Stanley, on steroids. She was also a big player in the anti-American, Ché-worshiping, La Raza Unida, which for those who don’t know Spanish means The Race United.

He and his twin brother are nothing but AA queens, like Obama. It is a shame that San Antonio, the home of the Alamo and the hearth of Texas freedom, has turned into such a bastion of liberalism. Then again, that’s what open borders will give you.

I don’t know why Texans are so down on Castro. He got ya’ll a great deal on a neato bike share program at $850,000, he’s working on getting you more bike/ jogging paths,too. I’ll admit, you may be thrown about that 7% increase in rapes and aggravated assaults, but I feel certain that figure will change drastically once more women pull on their jog bras and micro shorts & start exploring those wooded trails using their borrowed bikes.

Correct, and seeing as more than half of Obama’s facebook followers ended up being fake, I suspect similar Tweet padding.

Even if it were true though, it doesn’t really mean anything. Twitter is still largely a medium used by the very young, thus the average twitter uses skews somewhat to the left. So it’s not exactly an accurate measure of the, uh, pulse of America.

Yes, we’re so proud of him and his communist La Raza Mama. Somehow, I don’t think my kindreds, like Houston or Travis or Austin or Bowie or Crockett or Seguin, would share in this admiration of Castro, either this one or the other in Cuba.

One thing’s for sure, this Castro’s ancestors were not on the side of Texas during our fight for independence, they were with Mexico and Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna. And this one, he is with Barack Hussein Obama, nothing new.

lexhamfox on September 5, 2012 at 1:03 AM

Which is why they needed a bail-out in 2008. Right? You’re not too bright.

Right now, the federal government owns 500,000,000 shares of GM, or about 26% of the company. It would need to get about $53.00/share for these to break even on the bailout, but the stock closed at only $20.21/share on Tuesday. This left the government holding $10.1 billion worth of stock, and sitting on an unrealized loss of $16.4 billion.
Right now, the government’s GM stock is worth about 39% less than it was on November 17, 2010, when the company went public at $33.00/share. However, during the intervening time, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has risen by almost 20%, so GM shares have lost 49% of their value relative to the Dow.

I watched a little of Castro, which was bad enough. Michelle O’s pandering and her being, well, Michelle O. made the old blood pressure spike.

No more convention for me, NPR is in full-on ove fest mode this morning for the Dems. All kinds of fawning over Liawatha (who’s, going to speak tonight, that should be fair enough warning for people to not watch the convention), smearing Romney (through their “interviews” with pundits and columnists nobody has ever heard of, before), and harping on the R’s not being “diverse enough”, etc.

Listened to Castro’s speech. Talked about his grandmother leaving Mexico to come to America. She had a 4th grade education, but worked hard to raise Castro’s mom, so that she could go to college. Mom worked hard to raise the Castro’s, so that “instead of a mop, I could stand here today holding the microphone”.

My first reaction was “Why is Marco Rubio giving the keynote address at the DNC”. Of course it wasn’t Rubio, just a guy who was doing a poor imitation of the speech Rubio gave at the RNC.

HarryBackside on September 5, 2012 at 7:31 AM

One HUGE contrast between these two conventions:

The conservative “bench” is full of up and coming superstars (like Rubio, Ryan, Mia Love, etc) which will carry us through the next decade or more.

The communist “bench” is full of… nothing. Empty chairs.

And Mooch was once again trying to hide the anger that her big fat butt got grounded this year from the exotic vacays she had planned. How much you want to bet she tops them all with a vacay right after the election?

Listened to Castro’s speech. Talked about his grandmother leaving Mexico to come to America. She had a 4th grade education, but worked hard to raise Castro’s mom, so that she could go to college. Mom worked hard to raise the Castro’s, so that “instead of a mop, I could stand here today holding the microphone”.

My first reaction was “Why is Marco Rubio giving the keynote address at the DNC”. Of course it wasn’t Rubio, just a guy who was doing a poor imitation of the speech Rubio gave at the RNC.

This is the Dems answer to Rubio? And the guy can’t even speak Spanish. LMAO – what a poser, just like the rest of the party.

Oh, and wait until it becomes more readily apparent what a nice lady Julian’s Mama was- heh. Good luck with that in 2020, Dems.

He only had a 1210 on his SAT’s and has ridden the government apron strings getting into Stanford University through affirmative action when all other students “accepted on their own merits” scored above 1800. Heck the average SAT score is 1538.

The SAT used to be out of 1600 max. Back then, 1210 was not a bad score, it was in the 80th percentile.

how many of these speakers were “canidates” for offices

couldn’t even find enough leaders with credentials enough to get elected

all talk, no stature

sounds like our not so fearless leader

Wow .. I know the GOP was also down (don’t have the # at my fingertips), but Rush just said the first night of the DNC was WAAAY down from 2008.

Cool.
