    Hey you all. No chatting for me (I still don’t know how to get in since you changed). Great night. Two things: I do not like Anna Marie Cox. And Jesse Jackson is a hatah. Night all.

    President Obama, during his speech at the Democratic National Convention, said he will take the money Mitt Romney wants to spend on wars Americans don’t want and spend it rebuilding “roads and bridges, schools and runways.”

    DNC Video Highlights GOP Obstruction Of Obama (WATCH)

    The final night of the Democratic convention highlighted Republicans’ determination to thwart President Obama’s agenda from early in his presidency.

    Footage immediately preceding a clip package of Obama’s accomplishments featured House Republican leaders John Boehner and Eric Cantor nay-saying his agenda and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell vowing that the party’s top priority should be to deny the president a second term.

    The message: Obama has overcome relentless Republican obstruction to achieve change.

    With Hope as His Weapon President Obama Completely Destroys Mitt Romney

    Barack Obama took the stage and portrayed America’s choice as between a president with a hopeful vision, and a bumbling, blundering tax cutting fool who offers nothing but darkness and despair.[....]

    President Obama offered a vision of hope for America’s future, “Because we understand that this democracy is ours. We, the People, recognize that we have responsibilities as well as rights; that our destinies are bound together; that a freedom which only asks what’s in it for me, a freedom without a commitment to others, a freedom without love or charity or duty or patriotism, is unworthy of our founding ideals, and those who died in their defense. As citizens, we understand that America is not about what can be done for us. It’s about what can be done by us, together, through the hard and frustrating but necessary work of self-government. So you see, the election four years ago wasn’t about me. It was about you. My fellow citizens – you were the change.”

    Obama reassured the American people that they still hold the power to build a better America, “If you turn away now – if you buy into the cynicism that the change we fought for isn’t possible…well, change will not happen. If you give up on the idea that your voice can make a difference, then other voices will fill the void: lobbyists and special interests; the people with the $10 million checks who are trying to buy this election and those who are making it harder for you to vote; Washington politicians who want to decide who you can marry, or control health care choices that women should make for themselves. Only you can make sure that doesn’t happen. Only you have the power to move us forward.”[....]

    Don’t believe the media lies. North Carolina is still in play:

    North Carolina all tied up
    September 2, 2012
    Raleigh, N.C.– PPP’s pre-Democratic convention North Carolina poll finds the
    Presidential race in the state all tied up: Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are each at 48%.

    (snip)

    “North Carolina looks like a sheer toss up heading into the Democratic convention,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “If the Democrats have a successful week in Charlotte, Barack Obama will have a very good chance at carrying the state againl ike he did in 2008.”
