"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
Needled by Mitt Romney and other Republicans, Democrats hurriedly rewrote their convention platform Wednesday to add a mention of God and declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel after President Barack Obama intervened to order the changes.
The embarrassing reversal was compounded by chaos and uncertainty on the convention floor. Three times Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, the convention chairman, called for a voice vote on the changes and each time the yes and no votes seemed to balance each other out. On the third attempt, Villaraigosa ruled the amendments were approved — triggering boos from many in the audience.
The episode exposed tensions on Israel within the party, put Democrats on the defensive and created a public relations spectacle as Obama arrived in the convention city to claim his party’s nomination for a second term.
“There was no discussion. We didn’t even see it coming. We were blindsided by it,” said Noor Ul-Hasan, a Muslim delegate from Salt Lake City, who questioned whether the convention had enough of a quorum to even amend the platform.” here
When the cat is out of the bag — it’s gone. When that barn door is left open — the truth escapes.
The vote yesterday on the floor of the Democrat Convention, didn’t pass by a 2/3 voice vote — it was “deemed” pass because the word had come down that these two items must be reentered into the platform for the sake of appearances. The vote I heard, was much closer to 50/50. Half the people there wanted NO part of God nor support of Israel.
The ‘Arab’ American (pictured above) was very annoyed. ‘ No support of Israel!’ for him. And evidently, he’s not all that impress with God, either.
What was left out of the platform, which had been REMOVED, was clearly stating that Hamas be defined as a “terrorist organization”, which it is. Why would Democrats do that?
It was only a few weeks ago, when Obama’s mouthpiece, Jay Carney, refused multi- times to say Obama supported “Jerusalem as Israel’s capitol” — then suddenly (wink wink) that’s Removed from the Democrat platform statement.
So here we have the National Democrat Party dropping all reference to God, support of Israel and Jerusalem as it’s capitol and no offensive rhetoric shall be had regarding a Muslim terrorist group, Hamas. That is the new Socialist Democrat Party of America.
Make no mistake about it. This was another huge blunder by the Incompetence in Chief, Barack Hussein Obama, who’s loyalties lie much closer to Muslims, Islam and Hamas than he wants America to know. I’m sure he’s still stinging from the pressure of having to return those distasteful words to the Democrat agenda.
