Dems choose 2012 convention date

Washington (CNN) – Democrats, mark your calendars.

The Democratic National Committee announced Monday that it will hold its national convention the week of September 3, 2012. Where it will take place is still undecided.

DNC Chairman Tim Kaine revealed the convention date in a blog posting where he declared that Democrats “will re-nominate President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, and re-affirm our party’s values of equality, inclusion, diversity, and respect.”

The 2012 Republican National Convention is scheduled to begin August 27, 2012. This week a delegation of Republican officials are in Salt Lake City, Utah, which is vying to host the event. The 12 members tasked with helping to choose the GOP’s host city have already visited Phoenix, Arizona and Tampa Bay, Florida.

    Well I see Kaine is still spining like he did when he was one of the worst gov. this state ever had. Keep up the good work Kaine you will help us get controll of our country back from your far left buddies.

    "Democrats will re-nominate President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden"–oo, there's a shocker. So why waste all that money on a convention? Why not give it to the poor or Acorn?

    You're equal as long as we have to create programs to support you to make you vote for us. We can do everything for you better than you can yourself should be the party platform!

    There is no City called Tampa Bay, Florida. There is Tampa, St Petersburg, Clearwater, etc. but no Tampa Bay. The ROP looked at Tampa for their meeting but didn't look at St Petersburg.

    I suggest the Dems hold their convention freakshow in Chicago. The dirtiest political town in America and where Barry, Deadfish and Axelclod were all spawned from!

    "and re-affirm our party’s values of equality, inclusion, diversity, and respect.”
    equality= let all lazy people enjoy the fruits of regular Americans.
    inclusion= yeh, we make sure there are groups that suffer from inferiority complex forever so they vote for us forever.
    diversity= we allow all values, no values, we protect political correctness to a point of endangering national security
    respect= we claim respect but we only respect power (our own).

    Yeh yeh, we were fooled in 08... enough with that nonsense, you are just average politicians and some of you can also deliver nice talking..

    Don't waste your time, Rethuglicans. The party of no, hate, racism, bigotry, scare tactics and exclusion doesn't have a chance. Obama in 2012!!!!!!

    This seems a little bizarre ... is Kaine saying that no Democrat can oppose Obama and Biden??

    Dems values are the exact opposite of the Repubs of today who believe in the superiority of the wealthy white guys pretending to follow Jesus' teachings of love and kindness to others while practicing non judgement. Repubs believe in exclusion and white supremacy while fostering hate and division. I know I prefer the former set of values for a free and just America.
