Five things we learned from Day Three of the DNC

Charlotte, North Carolina (CNN) - President Barack Obama accepted the nomination of his party Thursday on the last night of the Democratic National Convention, wrapping up a three-day political lovefest in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Obama's acceptance speech wasn't one of his best, but it was enough to send Democrats infused with enthusiasm as they head home and hope it spreads there.

    Obama has had more than ample time to improve the economy, no matter what he inherited from George Bush. He has not done that. In fact, matters have gotten worse and there is no reson to believe they will improve under his leadership. He ougth to be voted out and give another person a chance, since he has failed. He asks for more time. It's not time that he needs but different policies in order to succeed.

    1. This land is not ONLY about the RIGHT – it's more about diversity & ME
    2. Not hearing from Kerry in a while, he made a comeback and really UPSET the floor
    3. And OMG – Jennifer Granholm – Took the case that told the other side to "Shut the Front Door!!!"
    4. President Obama's family – the other children, Castro's daughter and the otheres were something to adore
    5. And you left with feelings-it's NOT just about Obama-but more about the CHANGE and what we STAND FOR!!

    Obama 2012 – The ONLY Trusted Way Forward – What an EXCITING 3-days!!

    What we already knew. Look at the crowd at the DNC convention. It's what America is now not what it was 50 or 60 years ago. Young and old, black, brown, white, Asians, veterans, gays, women, Muslims, Siks, the list goes on and on. This isn't about the have and have nots. This election is about civil and human rights and how they are going to be taken from us if the lying duo have their way.
    Kerry's speech was right on. The twit could debate himself because he has changed his mind so many times he had plenty to be for and against just within himself. The laying altar boy who says is catholic represents what is wrong with his church in the 21st century and a LOT of catholic and even rethugs are not buying his lies.
    Last week . . . . . 50 shades of white and hatred and some mutant saying that the president knew about 9/11 before it happened.

    I was disappointed with the “Democrat Convention”! I was praying they expose the Republican terrorist that plotted against the country. I wanted someone at the “Convention” to expose the Republican that plan to sabotage democracy! To vote “NO” even if it benefited the country just to win the “White House”! The Internet has pictures of the 15 Republican that plotted against the country. Just like the terrorist that on 9/11 plotted against the country and murder over 3,000. These Republican were JUST AS EVIL! The Democrats had a opportunity to name the Republican responsible for the slow recovery! Paul Ryan was part of that meeting to sabotage democracy!

    Exposing the Republican terrorist would had brought reason to the American people! Like former President Clinton stated” no President could had corrected all the mess create in 8 years by Bush/ Cheney! I would add “ON TOP” of dealing with Republican obstructionist! Mitt Romney picked one of the obstructionist as his Vice President! Exposing the Republican obstructionist would had explain to the American voters. HOW TO VOTE AND HOW TO FIX AMERICA! Re-elect President Obama and give Democrats the house majority! Republican are the problem recovery America from the mess Republican create!

    The 15 Republicans were in a sombre mood as they gathered at the Caucus Room in Washington, an upscale restaurant where a New York strip steak costs $51. Attending the dinner were House members Eric Cantor, Jeb Hensarling, Pete Hoekstra, Dan Lungren, Kevin McCarthy, Paul Ryan and Pete Sessions. From the Senate were Tom Coburn, Bob Corker, Jim DeMint, John Ensign and Jon Kyl. Others present were former House Speaker and future – and failed – presidential candidate Newt Gingrich and the Republican strategist Frank Luntz, who organized the dinner and sent out the invitations.

    These so-call American politician should be on every Sunday Morning news show explaining their treason to the American people! Newt Gingrich has been interview several time and never asked about the anti-American meeting! Paul Ryan has been interview several time and never asked about the anti-American meeting! Mitt Romney picked a Republican obstructionist to be his Vice President! Why aren’t there question to Mitt Romney about his pick for a anti-American Republican obstructionist? Where are the interviews with the organizer Frank Luntz? He put together a group of men to destroy the recovery! Not because of President Obama’s policy he had not made a policy yet. These men base their obstructionist mentality on HATRED of President Obama!

    After 9/11 it was say Americans came together! So what happen after the greatest financial downfall in the history of America! WHERE WAS THE COMING TOGETHER? Why did the Republican terrorist pick that period in time to be obstructionist? Democrat had a opportunity to expose the reason behind the slow recovery!

    I would have liked more specifics from the president, but at least it was more positive than Romney. The speech Romney gave was more negative in tone.
