3Chics Politico In Charlotte, NC At The 2012 DNC| Day 2

Hello Everyone!  There’s nothing like being at THERE.  I can honestly say that being primary cause vs. secondary cause seals my reality.  If your’e hearing from the media JACKALS & GOPers that the enthusiasm for President Obama is just not where it was in 2008, I’m hear to tell you that I can’t measure what the energy level was like at the 2008 DNC.

What I can share with you is that I have spoken hundreds of Obama supporters here in Charlotte over the past few days, and they tell me that their energy and enthusiasm is even stronger.

Their support and entusiasm is not one born of fear of the extreme platform that the Republicans have offered America.  It is one of maturity. You see, these folks knew the realities of what lie ahead for Barack Obama before he took the oath of office.  They were REALIST, and they knew the challenges that our country faced, and accepted that the candidate was up to the task.

Here’s today’s schedue of speakers:

5:00 – 6:00: Antonio Villaraigosa * Bishop Vashti Murphy McKenzie * Presentation of Colors * Pledge of Allegiance * National Anthem: Branford Marsalis * Luis V. Gutierrez * Diana DeGette * John A. Pérez * Thomas M. Menino * Judy Chu * Steve Westly * An Economy Built to Last Video: Small Business * John Larson * Ken Myers

7:0 0– 8:00: Denise Juneau * Nancy Pelosi * Tom Vilsack * Barbara Mikulski * Arne Duncan * Progress for People Video: Education * Johanny Adames * Jim Hunt * Remarks and Video Presentation in Memoriam presented by Harvey B. Gantt * Live Performance: Jessica Sanchez

8:00 – 9:00: Stronger Together Video: Women’s Health * Elizabeth Ann “Libby” Bruce * Cecile Richards * Steny Hoyer * Barney Frank * American Heroes Video: Veterans * Ed Meagher * General Eric Shinseki * Michael Nutter * John Hickenlooper * Sister Simone Campbell * Jack Markell

    Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) warned at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday that Republican legislators across the county were attacking the voting rights that civil rights leaders have fought to preserve.

    “47 years ago, in the face of opposition from those who said states should have the right to discriminate, America passed the Voting Rights Act of 1965,” Bass said. “People of all races, religions, and backgrounds joined together and fought for that law because every one of us deserves a fair shake and a fair chance at achieving our version of the American dream.”

    But today, Bass warned, “one of the darkest shadows of the past century is creeping into this one: one of our most basic rights — the right to vote, a right that we fought for and won — is under attack.”

    “Throughout the union, governors and legislators have proposed or passed laws to make it more difficult for individuals to cast their ballots,” Bass said. “We must build and be a part of a nation where ‘justice’ isn’t a catch phrase, but embodies the equality and fairness that our nation’s founders envisioned.”

    In contrast to the RNC platform — which explicitly endorses voter ID laws — the Democratic platform says that voter ID laws “can disproportionately burden young voters, people of color, low-income families, people with disabilities, and the elderly.”

    But Democrats face an uphill battle in convincing the broad electorate that voter ID laws are problematic. A Rasmussen poll found that 73 percent of Americans support a broadly described voter ID law.

    The Obama Justice Department has opposed voter ID laws in South Carolina and Texas but cleared them in Virginia and Rhode Island.

    Here is the full text of the Democratic platform’s section on voting rights:

    Voting Rights. We believe the right to vote and to have your vote counted is an essential American freedom, and we oppose laws that place unnecessary restrictions on those seeking to exercise that freedom. Democrats have a proud history of standing up for the right to vote. During the Obama administration, the Justice Department has initiated careful, thorough, and independent reviews of proposed voting changes, and it has prevented states from implementing voter identification laws that would be harmful to minority voters. Democrats know that voter identification laws can disproportionately burden young voters, people of color, low-income families, people with disabilities, and the elderly, and we refuse to allow the use of political pretexts to disenfranchise American citizens.

    how’s this for a quote:

    “I will not stand behind President Obama….. No, I will stand in front of him, taking on those who wish to see him fail. I will stand tall and be proud of my President, and what he has accomplished in such a short time. Brave men do not stand behind what they believe in, they stand in front of it, and defend it with everything they’ve got. NO! I will not stand behind my President. I will stand in front of him!”

    Gabby Douglas To Lead Pledge Of Allegiance Wednesday At DNC
    Pema Levy – 2:29 PM EDT, Wednesday September 5, 2012

    Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas, who won two gold medals in London last month, will say the Pledge of Allegiance Wednesday evening at the Democratic National Convention, Politico reports.

    Douglas, who is in Charlotte on a panel for the Kids’ Health Goes Gold initiative with U.S. Olympic teammates Aly Raisman and Jordyn Wieber, told Politico she wasn’t nervous. “Not really. I’m just going to go out there, be myself and have fun,” she said.
