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.”

SHARP contrast to the GREAT speech Ann Romney gave last week, which while maybe not delivered as well was a MUCH better speech overall and contained a MUCH better message to the American People.

RBMN on September 4, 2012 at 11:16 PM

Good delivery. Honestly, Michelle’s speech was way better at making the argument for her husband at the ‘gut-level’ than Ann Romney’s. Yeah, it was full of lies and distortions. But nobody is going to scrutinize the personal narratives of either candidate’s wife, or how they characterize their husbands’ careers.

They can say whatever they want. But as the Republican convention revealed, and the Dems’ convention will confirm, only the already-converted are paying attention to these conventions. No one is going to vote based on Christie, Castro, Ann Romney, or Michelle Obama.

The only parts of these things that might sway people are the speeches by Romney, Obama, Ryan, and Biden. And even then, it will only really matter if they screw up.

Hmmmm…from Hillbuzz’s live blog:

At the end, she’s starting to let Angry Michelle come out. She’s jabbing at the air with her finger.

The woman is a good speaker though. Give her that credit. It’s better than most of the people who talked tonight who just read off the TelePrompTers.

She’s effectively revving up the crowd inside.

She’s building it to crescendo now.

People are smiling and are on their feet chanting YES WE CAN.

She says her most important title is still Mom in Chief.

She’s putting some emotion into it and is doing a good job selling it.

Girlfriend got skills…give her the props.

Did you know that Craig Robinson, Michelle’s brother, has a white wife? She was with him just now in a shot, wiping tears away.

Michelle said “God Bless You, God Bless America” convincingly.

Then they are playing a Beyonce song to “move your body”…from behind you see her dress is ill-fitting and garish.

Pity.

She did a great job folks. Whether you like her or not, that was an A-grade speech for a political spouse. She came across as a nice lady who loved her husband and kids. She came off as human and not mean-spirited.

That was some BRILLIANT PR handling for her.

Great coaching.

The outfit was a poor choice and her styling was off, but that might have been intentional to make her more mom-like.

I would like you to know I had to go to HuffPo to find a close up of the dress.

First – it’s one size too small so there is that.

Second – highly inappropriate for the occasion. It is something you would wear to a “winter enchantment” dance in Junior High or maybe high school.

Third – with those shoulders – she should never wear a neckline like that, especially with no sleeves. Makes her look even more like a linebacker.

The present days’ unstable relationship, the lack of commitment and responsibility, and the very common situations where their mates walked out for a younger model when the women grew old, wrinkled and fat will make that reliance on government hard to change.

And I think the line which will show that for the average person will be the line about “he doesn’t care if you are Democrats or Republicans…he listens to and believes in you all!”. ANY average person hearing that is going to look at the disgusting ads he’s been running…the way he’s treated Republicans in Congress over the past 3 years (starting with “I won!” and going to placing Ryan in the front row of the healthcare debate JUST to give him a public snubbing) and go “YEAH RIGHT!” I think that one line through her whole speech into disbelief. :)

Dingy Harry was at that podium earlier, and I’ve heard that his old-man-forgets-to-bathe stink can linger for a while.

other financial indicators show GM having a hard time making it two quarters from now.

Which indicators are you referring to? Keep it vague and faith-based, that’s your only hope.

Over the past 2 years it’s down 40% and the market is up over 10%..

What do you think is going to happen when the market corrects???

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.

I would like you to know I had to go to HuffPo to find a close up of the dress.

First – it’s one size too small so there is that.

Second – highly inappropriate for the occasion. It is something you would wear to a “winter enchantment” dance in Junior High or maybe high school.

Third – with those shoulders – she should never wear a neckline like that, especially with no sleeves. Makes her look even more like a linebacker.

I knew you wouldn’t let us down. A “winter enchantment” dance, I’m laughing my ass off about that concept. And, linebackers should be a little more discreet in their evening wear.

As a guy, I also was curious about the color of the dress, it certainly wasn’t subdued or understated. To me, it screamed “Livin’ la Vida Loca.” Or maybe just “Look at Me”.

Not to mention the class warfare, demonizing the TEA party, and alienating half of Americans. Barry doesn’t care about all Americans, he only loves himself!

texgal on September 4, 2012 at 11:36 PM

And then in an act of unbridled ignorance, you go on to accuse me of lying… how precious.

bayam on September 4, 2012 at 10:52 PM

bayam, you are a liar. You make up preposterous statements where 100% of one group of people or another agree 100% with you. When asked to prove it, you say a few nasty comments and run off.

I’m happy to cite our exchange from last week if you’d like. I’m still waiting on your reply.

You can’t be a liberal without lying. You simply don’t have math on your side.

So true. I don’t think the average American is going to be pulled into that speech of hers. It was TOO blatantly trying to do nothing but pump up Barrack as Saint Obama and extol the greatness of government.

Not to mention the arm pit fat squeezing out of the too tight sleeveless seams.

texgal on September 4, 2012 at 11:40 PM

The thing which REALLY gets my goat is when liberals go off on their “fair share” rants. I always have ONE question which I shoot back at them, which really shuts them up and leaves them stammering trying to come back with an answer: What EXACTLY does “fair share” mean; who determines what any one person’s “fair share” is? They simply CANNOT answer that question, only spout off the talking point. It makes me sick whenever I hear it these days.

Highlar on September 4, 2012 at 11:41 PM

I’m sure this was discussed upthread, but Dick Durbin’s defensiveness with Brett Baer was hilarious earlier tonight.

slickwillie2001 on September 4, 2012 at 11:46 PM

This is all so pointless; the libs are going to like everything about the entire convention because they always circle the wagons. We’ve all seen the hostage tapes. Conservatives are always going to be critical of our speakers because we always want to do better, to achieve more. Oh yeah, and because we’re honest.

There is a bit of a creepy little vibe like that from this Convention so far. Also..did you notice? Not a SINGLE chant of “USA USA USA!” from this crowd. Plenty of “FOUR MORE YEARS!” and “YES WE CAN!”…but no verbal showing of pride in country. Scary stuff in some ways!
