Disaster at the DNC: Democrats Boo and Scream as "God" is Forced Back Onto Platform

Democrats held a voice vote yesterday in an attempt to get God and Jerusalem back onto their platform.  Republicans had roundly ripped President Obama and the Democrats after it was discovered that the language had been omitted in the party’s official platform.

It was a clear attempt to pander to the pro-Israeli vote, after the sudden realization that Americans do actually like their government supporting its closest ally in the Middle East.  And it was a clear attempt to reverse an embarrassing situation in which Democrats were revealed as the Godless party.

The voice vote required two-thirds majority to get God and Jerusalem back into the platform, and as you can see by this video it was an epic disaster on the floor of the DNC.

First off, the Democrats clearly were forcing the issue.  They never had two-thirds of the votes to secure the change, and had to put the vote through three separate times.  After the third attempt, the crowd was still clearly split, yet it was illegally ratified anyway.

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, whose main job is to constantly lie about everything in front of her said, “It was absolutely a two-thirds”.  Watch that video again – there is absolutely no way they had a two-thirds majority.  CNN’s Anderson Cooper agreed, calling Wasserman-Scultz’ interpretation “an alternate reality”.

Second, the optics of a crowd booing and screaming because God was put back on the party platform is incredibly bad.  
New York Senate candidate Wendy Long had this to say about the incident:

“Sad is the only way to describe what happened tonight at the Democratic Convention in Charlotte. It took three roll calls for Kirsten Gillibrand and the Democrats to ram through the obvious, first an acknowledgement that ‘God’ belongs in their party platform and second that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.  (They owe) an apology for this profoundly disturbing display.”

Even the normally compliant media had a field day with the Democrat delegates.  Here is a sampling of the commentary coming from the media…

Democrat Strategist Paul Begala on CNN:  “Beyond awkward. It’s embarrassing. It’s stupid. It’s an unforced error by my party.”

CNN”s John King: “Normally you count your ducks. If you’re going to fix something in an open convention, you count your ducks first. That was embarrassing.”

King would later add this – “This is Keystone Cops”:

Radio host Michael Savage thinks this could be a major turning point in the election.

“Can you imagine a nation founded on the principles of God is being taken over by a party that despises God, denies God’s existence and wants to stab Israel in the back in order to support the Islamists who would kill the Jews and drive them out of the Middle East?” he asked.

Things are so bad after this fumble that chief Democrat operatives have had to cancel interviews today.

What a joke.

Video: CNN’s John King Gets the Newtron Bomb

January 20, 2012 at 12:24 am (2012 Election, CNN, Debate, John King, Media Bias, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Republicans)

Newt Gingrich is on fire right now, and the liberal elite media had better watch out.

At tonight’s debate in South Carolina, John King made the unfortunate mistake of leading off with a tabloid level question.  A question I might add, that nobody ever asked John Edwards when he was being outed for having an affair.  We’re still wondering about President Obama’s character flaws – 3 years into his term – including relationships with Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Tony Rezko, college transcripts, law degrees, etc.  We’re still begging for more information from the ‘most transparent administration in history’ on such current scandals as Fast and Furious, Solyndra, CH2M Hill, etc.

But an ex-wife from twenty years ago? Now that’s worthy of coverage.

Why are they so willing to go after Gingrich?  He has an “R” in front of his name.

Via the Daily Caller:

Talk about a scolding.

Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich slammed CNN’s John King for starting Thursday’s presidential debate with a question to him about his ex-wife’s recent claims that he requested an “open” marriage that would allow him to have a girlfriend on the side.

Asked by King if he’d like to explain his side, Gingrich coldly responded, “No.”The former House speaker then went on to blast the “destructive, vicious, negative nature of much of the news media.”

“I’m frankly astounded that CNN would take a question like that and use it to open a presidential debate,” Gingrich said to King.

One correction I’d like to add is that last line, in which Gingrich actually said “I’m frankly astounded that CNN would take trash like that…”

It actually gets better when Gingrich tosses out an additional jab at the media for their blatant bias in reporting Republicans or reporting President Obama.

“I am tired of the elite media protecting Barack Obama by attacking Republicans.”

That’s a big Amen.

The other candidates rallied around Gingrich as well, with Romney essentially telling King to stick to the issues.

Here’s the video:
