    I was moved to tears by more than one of those speeches while watching the coverage on PBS last night, and I agree she absolutely hit it out of the park. Even if you don't agree with all of the Obama's policies, it's clear that they have a very powerful message of equality and freedom for all Americans. Plus Obama saved the auto industry while Romney said to let Detroit fail. One other highlight was the tribute to Ted Kennedy. The footage of his senate debate with Romney was priceless!!!

    I doubt the facts matter too much, but Romney did not want the auto industry to fail. He wanted a reorg with court supervision to ensure creditors were treated fairly. Obama favored a reorganization without those rules so he could give special status to the UAW. BTW, some public employee union retirees we're also screwed by the Obama Admin because their union was not as politically connected as the UAW. Details here:

    How artfully she gutted the republican fish by talking about her family and "us."

    Michelle's speech was a very strong expression of both little 'd' democratic and big 'D' Democratic values. This was the key quote:

    Michelle Obama:These issues aren't political -- they're personal. Because Barack knows what it means when a family struggles. He knows what it means to want something more for your kids and grandkids. Barack knows the American Dream because he's lived it . and he wants everyone in this country to have that same opportunity, no matter who we are, or where we're from, or what we look like, or who we love.

    And he believes that when you've worked hard, and done well, and walked through that doorway of opportunity, you do not slam it shut behind you . You reach back, and you give other folks the same chances that helped you succeed.


    And that's what it's all about. The Democratic party is about equality, freedom, and opportunity for everybody, the Republicans are about rich straight angry men. Thank you Mrs. Obama for reminding me why I vote Democrat. So proud.

    +1 My favorite part from last night: "Our mother also taught us that everyone has worth, regardless of who they are or what they believe,” Obama’s sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng said. “That’s what inspired Barack’s vision for a more inclusive and compassionate America, where everyone has a part to play in our shared story.”

    Huff post even caught her lies when she tauted all the jobs Obama has created...


    The unfortunate reality is that most of the jobs created under President Barack Obama’s administration pay low wages. About three-fifths of the jobs created during the economic recovery are low-wage, while most of the jobs lost during the recession paid middle-wages, according to a recent study from the National Employment Law Project. More than 40 percent of the jobs created during the economic recovery have been in low-paying sectors like retail, food and employment services.

    They won't pay the rent...hahahaha
    vote for 4 more years of this "forward" BS.

    President Obama has already created 1.5 million more jobs in 3 1/2 years than Bush and his failed policies created in 8 years.

    Now Romney wants to take us back by reimplementing the same failed Bush economic policies that wrecked the economy and caused the job losses.

    Voting for the same failed Bush/Romney policies would be nuts.

    FACT CHECK TIME
    Romney advocated for letting Detroit go bankrupt.
    Here are his own words:
    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/19/opinion/19romney.html

    President Obama acted to save the US auto industry.
    Romney would've passively sat on the sidelines and allowed the great American auto industry to die.

    FYI - the fact DO matter.

    You know it was an exceptional speech. MRS O your speech was a great performance, it was perfection and flawlessly executed. But...... it was all lies, and I'm sure she did not even belive it. But they are desperate.

    Cranky_No_More saidThe irrefutable logic of this election:

    To vote Republican is a vote to restore the policies that brought on the collapse.
    It's that simple.



    Actually, it's not that simple...you're just being simplistic in your thinking. But it makes for a good, albeit ever so typical, MSNBC talking-point. Romney is not George Bush, Paul Ryan is not Dick Cheney. If elected, Romney/Ryan will bring a fresh perspective, and depth of experience on the economic front that we have not actually had in The White House in decades. Will it work? Who the hell knows.

    Apparently you did not read the links I provided to educate yourself and continue to spew BS. Might work with your fellow left-wing dummies. Going bankrupt does not mean failing, i.e. liquidation unless we are talking about Chapter 7.

    No actually he wants to continue with the failed GOP policies that got us to the brink of economic disaster in the first place like the Bush Tax Cuts!

    I understand perfectly the kind of pathetic hair-splitting BS you're trying to peddle.
    Letting companies go bankrupt may or may not mean that that company goes out of business.
    Of course.
    Some companies are able to borrow money restructure and survive.

    But in the depth of the Bush recession - with a banking crisis going on and no money available for large loans - the auto companies would've been unable to find the cash they needed to stay alive.
    That was the reality of the economic picture at the time.
    Borrowing money would've been impossible.
    The auto industry would've died and a million workers would've lost their jobs.
    So Romney prescription for the auto industry's crisis was a prescription for FAILURE.
    Romney's "let Detroit go bankrupt" policy would've killed a million jobs.

    President Obama's solution has successfully rescued the US auto industry from extinction and saved a million jobs.

    This is a perfect example of why Romney's economic ideas stink and should be rejected this November.
    His free market free-for-all policies are just more of the failed Bush economic policies that wrecked the economy to begin with.

    I'll post the link one more time which fully explains the differences between Romney's and Obama's approach to bankruptcy protection wrt the auto industry. Beginning to think you lack the intellectual capability to process the material and can only spew slogans.

    The Bush tax cuts have added 3 TRILLION dollars to the National Debt.
    I thought you Repubs were concerned about the size of the National Debt?
    Or do you actually still believe that "deficits don't matter"?

    Bush and the Repubs promised that the Bush tax cuts would create strong economic and job growth.
    Now after the Bush tax cuts have been in place for 11 years - what did we get?
    The Bush recession and 8.5+ million lost jobs.

    The Bush tax cuts have been an unmitigated failure and any fair-minded person who's aware of the facts knows that.

    You on the other hand - are as delusional and misinformed as your buddy SoCal!
