One of the biggest differences I've noticed between the dems' convention and the repubs' convention is that the speakers tonight have been talking about President Obama, not themselves.
One of the biggest differences between this year's dem convention and past ones is that these dems aren't afraid to say President Obama is pro-choice, pro-gay rights, pro-women, and pro-gressive. It's about time.
No speeches to empty chairs by crazy old guys who used to be cool.
No self-centered assholes spending three-quarters of their time talking about themselves.
No strings of outright lies.
I may not be an ardent Obama supporter, but I'd support just about ANY democrat over Romney and Ryan. I don't want drone wars, or any wars. But I REALLY don't want to see the end of reproductive rights, the continuation of the war-theocracy state that Bush II started, a renewed campaign of tax cuts for the super-wealthy, or an affirmation of the racist and classist hatred of the 99% that Romney/Ryan espouse.
