Open Thread | The Democratic Party Convention

We just finished day one and two of the Democratic Party’s Virtual Convention.
I think that they have done a fabulous job.
I think that they have showed the America that I love and believe in.

I loved my Forever FLOTUS😍😍😍

It wasn’t just

‘It is what it is’

It was the facial expression that accompanied it.

The young woman from Arizona who lost her father to COVID-19.
“My father didn’t have any pre-existing conditions other than believing Donald Trump.”

THAT should be an ad playing everyday. All day. Until Election Day.

I loved that Jacqalin, the lady from the NYT, nominated Joe Biden.
I loved the roll call of the states.
Shout out to Craig Hickman – who cast Maine’s delegate votes. Those who used to read Jack and Jill Politics remember Craig. ( thanks Ametia for the hat tip).

For those mad about the Republicans who spoke, Forever FLOTUS😍😍 done told you- we need a landslide…and to get to a landslide, you need all hands on deck.👏👏

We have to come out and vote like never before.
We have to save this American Experiment.

    Yeah, why was Julian Castro excluded? Okay, I have a vague memory that during the debates he said something to Joe Biden that some thought was disrespectful. Can’t remember what it was.

    It never ends. This is assault. His punk ass needs to be fired and charged.

      I like Nancy Pelosi except when I don’t. This really pisses me off.

      • Liza says:

        I hope Kennedy loses. Sen Ed Markey is the real deal. We need more of him, not less.

        Nancy is being a real jerk. She didn’t need to endorse ANYONE.

      • Liza says:

        I just wonder if it’s Markey’s connection to @AOC that caused Pelosi to do this. Pelosi despises @AOC for unseating a Democratic Golden Boy, a Pelosi favorite.

        Can’t think of much else since Markey has been a damn good Representative and Senator for a very long time.

        But he is a REAL progressive and that offends many Democrats.

        Pelosi should retire when Trump is gone. She won’t but she should.

      • Liza says:

        Someone tell me again about Joe Kennedy’s accomplishments and why he’s a better choice than the outstanding incumbent?

      • Liza says:

        The Kennedy’s think they own that Senate seat.

    Y’all see this yet? I’m LMAO. At the end of the day they were all just grifters, crooks, and liars. The only thing separating them from garden variety street criminals is their connections to people with power and wealth. And they have occupied the People’s House, and we have not been able to get rid of them.

    PBO finished up what Michelle started on Monday night, and it was awesome. Speak that truth…

    Transcript: Barack Obama’s DNC speech
    Updated 1:08 AM ET, Thu August 20, 2020

    “I have sat in the Oval Office with both of the men who are running for president. I never expected that my successor would embrace my vision or continue my policies. I did hope, for the sake of our country, that Donald Trump might show some interest in taking the job seriously; that he might come to feel the weight of the office and discover some reverence for the democracy that had been placed in his care.

    But he never did. For close to four years now, he’s shown no interest in putting in the work; no interest in finding common ground; no interest in using the awesome power of his office to help anyone but himself and his friends; no interest in treating the presidency as anything but one more reality show that he can use to get the attention he craves.

    Donald Trump hasn’t grown into the job because he can’t. And the consequences of that failure are severe. 170,000 Americans dead. Millions of jobs gone while those at the top take in more than ever. Our worst impulses unleashed, our proud reputation around the world badly diminished, and our democratic institutions threatened like never before.”

    • Liza says:

      “Vote for Justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arberry because Black Lives Matter.”

      Too bad Hillary and her husband Bill weren’t this concerned about black lives back in the 1990’s. Sorry, I’m not in the mood to forget history, I’m never in the mood to forget history.

      History matters.

    Black Women Views said that Hillary’s speech could be one sentence, and then drop the mic:

    I told you, Bitches.

    The thing is about this USPS story…
    It’s both nationwide AND local.
    It’s everywhere, yet, your local camera crew can go find a local facility that has been hurt. They can find local people who haven’t gotten their medicines. They find the local people – the people who ‘ look like me’ who have been affected by this attack on the Post Office.

    Fox News and the White House can’t gaslight and pushback against every local community having some story – whether on camera, on the radio, or in the local paper, telling the truth about it.
    And local whistleblowers are telling the truth about what’s happening.

    Now, it’s time for these State Attorneys General, to bring this muthaphucka up on charges.
