Boulder, September 2 (Scout Tufankjian for Obama for America)
Fired up and READY to VOTE! Lord knows I wish I could.
TY, my dear! Isn’t this a terrific party! Never ever thought I would spend hours in/on a political convention, or in any type of convention!
Way to go VC.
Chips, just soooooooooo impressed with all you have done for the Obama Team these past four days. Just an exceptional effort to immerse TOD in all the greatness that is #DNC2012. Thank you!!
@BarackObama 2008 DNC was amazing; #DNC2012 takes amazing into a realm I have never experienced in America at any time in my life. Thank you— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 06, 2012
TY, Bobfr. We have to find/make/create a medal higher than a gold for Chips Chica when this is all over! Or provide her with her own little plane…..and pilot.
congrats, I wish the same, but here in spirit.
Damn, I wanna see my name flash up on the screen too
Man, did ya’ll see Rev Al “snatch Steve Schmidt’s wig off” when Schmidty tried to say that the Romney ads on welfare are not racist.
Chips you need that video!
I would love to see that.
I think Schmidt it going vote blue all the way down the ticket. Shhh don’t tell the teabaggers….
I’d love to see it too.
I’m dancing with the DNC crowd!
And I was right there beside you, dontcha know
How about one debate, little willard robme will look like the lying, whining, privileged fool he is and then we vote that week??
Good grief, I hope the Republicans do not open an investigate and try to harrass ScarJo’s mother for voter fraud.
They are petty and vicious and need something to do after these three kick tail days.
looks like I missed something. They need to investigate Joe for that dead nubile young lady they found in his office
That brought tears! She is coming back!
TEARS TEARS TEARS!!!
GABBY looks fantastic!!!
Kerry Washington rocked the house! What a powerful speaker.
Kerry was Awesome! She has fire in her belly!
This campaign knows how to build to a climax! I am pumped!
oh I am so glad that Gabby is coming back!
We love you GABBY!!!!!!!!!!!!!— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 07, 2012
I didn’t realize how young she was. Wow what charisma, poise and passion. Love our youth.
hello TOD! arrived just in time to see the whole arena dancing to Earth Wind & Fire, Aretha Franklin and to see Gabby lead the hall with the Pledge of Allegiance. Whopping and dancing in my seat.
Put on your seat belts, it’s gonna be another thrilling ride!
I just turned the convention on on CSPAN…..just in time to see Caroline Kennedy! She is part of my youth/young adulthood, and I feel particularly for her. I reember the pictures of her as an adorable little girl with her brother. She has become an absolutely phenomenal woman. Also, of course….I like her name:)
Hey y’all! Got home in time to see Kerry Washington and Gabby, OMG, the crying has begun…
Gabby Giffords is just a completely amazing woman. Totally choked up. WOW.
Well, I actually think tonight will top the other two. And the worse 10 minutes (I think during some of the pauses) had more to them than the entire RNC.
So very true!!
Awwww Gabby. Tears in everyone’s eyes. What a reception she received. I give her so much credit for working so hard to get to this level where she was able to do this. And I cannot even let myself think about what happened to her and all that contributed to that senseless act.
This is way too emotional, and it’s only 5 pm on the West Coast.
Beau and Gabby, so wonderful. Gabby walking without a cane, and such a smile.
Dems are wonderful.
I am on the West coast too, have already been crying starting with Beau Biden’s tribute to Joe, to Gabby. I missed Kerry Washington, but will watch it later thanks to Chips!
The quality Caroline is illustrating is the one her father admired most: Courage. I’m so glad to hear someone say that. She is right.
I mean the quality Caroline is illustrating about President Obama is courage. Think I need to clarify.
Rep Becerra just emphasized Coupon Care…..repeated it three times. I like that…Coupon Care.
You have no idea the energy in the hall. #DNC2012— Jonathan Capehart (@CapehartJ) September 07, 2012
That’s right Jonathan – we can only IMAGINE!!!
I can feel it through my screen. The excitement is pumping through my veins
@CapehartJ That's the energy from all of us who've sustained our support for President Obama while media #NEWSTAINERS & GOP ONLY OBSTRUCTED.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 07, 2012
GOD I don’t know what to watch cspan or barrack obama youtube feed or msnbc. eeek too many options!

I was a waterfall.
He is good all the time! This is a water works convention for me!
Loving Kal Penn’s live stream so far.
Where do you find that?
What a wonderful, touching moment when the indomitable Gabby Giffords led the pledge at the DNC. She is a great inspiration!— David Axelrod (@davidaxelrod) September 07, 2012
I don’t know if I can keep up this emotional roller coaster. My goodness.
I know! But hang in there Cman! We’re right there with you

Worked at Wendy’s
MSNBC is SHAMEFUL.
what are they saying? I have them turned off.
Just talking a whole lotta NONSENSE about nothing the whole time the speakers are delivering important messages.
this Crist speech is going to infuriate so many people in both parties.— Peter Hamby (@PeterHambyCNN) September 07, 2012
Oh shit here comes Schiwitzer
This is overwhelming. Gov. Granholm, Kerry Washington, Scarlett and now Eva. So smart and so strong. The GOP has nothing NOTHING to anseer us with.
And Now Gov. Schweitzer. back to TV
Now for some Gov Robme Testimonials this should be fun
wow Eva Longoria is great too… so so impressed with all of our speakers, the women have truly been exceptional.
No no clapping for that….
2-4-6-8 Come on supporters let's DONATE!https://t.co/gzOTDChe— Donna NoShock (@NoShock) September 07, 2012

she was amazing… LOVED her, had to hang up talking to my son, didn’t want to miss what she was saying
lol last time he’s calling you during a political convention…
hahahahahaha,,,,stompeddddddddd on it…yeahhhhhhhhh!
She wins the prize so far. She was unbelievable! Great facts, sensational delivery!
Gov. Granholm is very pretty. Striking.
I think she was a beauty queen of some sort.
She’s fricking HOT. We can admit it. And especially on THIS BLOG after all of the LLLLLLLL U S T directed towards The 44th President of the United States of America. (the man not the office…..I hope…..)
that dog don’t hunt… isn’t that what he used in his 2008 speech? lol
I thought Eva brought it! Fabulous!
YES! But such a shame she’s so unattractive. *SIGH* Oh well we can’t all be……. But nonetheless she deserves love and kindness and so we must look at her and SEE her and……think about her and….. What the hell was I talking about??
You were talking about how much you were enjoying that martini! LOL! I’m enjoying mine too.
A MARTINI! YES! Excellent idea! Let me glug this wine! (Is anyone else speaking tonight or is that it until PBO speaks tomorrow night?????)
Ok, I have to delurk to say, “SACRILEGE ON THAT!!!!!”
@JenGranholm just fired up the #DNC2012. 'In Romney world, the cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft.' #powerful— Donna Brazile (@donnabrazile) September 07, 2012
Okay, I may come across as sexist but this is not meant to. We have been some exceptionally beautiful women speaking on the podium these three nights. Longoria being the most recent. And I will be honest, on first sight, it is their beauty that hits me. But that disappears the second they start speaking. What they have to say actually distracts from their beauty, in a good way. I can’t think of a single Republican woman that I have ever heard speak that I can say the same thing about.
How ’bout Jan Brewer? Sharron Angle?
gag me with a spoon.
I know what you mean Japa They all carry a glow of goodness.
I don’t think that’s sexist at all, japa21. I feel the same way. To me, it means their intelligence, empathy and spirituality are bigger and stronger than their physical beauty, which ironically enhances that same beauty.
Jokes aside japa, I agree with you and don’t think it’s sexist at all.
"We secretly switched Jennifer Granholm's decaf with Folger's Triple-Caffeinated Crystals"— Joshua Green (@JoshuaGreen) September 07, 2012
Just to see if she’d notice. Let’s watch!
Here comes Crist … this is gonna be interesting …
Now, there’s a profile in courage – Charlie Crist! Good for you, Charlie!
Charlie “embraced” the President in Ft. Myers and that got him thrown out of office, along with his veto of a bill that would harm teachers!
He’s an excellent speaker. He did a good job.
Oh good get to watch it again during the musical interlude. Thanks ChipsChica
I’ve just got home – thank you so much Chips for all the videos – I was upset for missing Gabby – and there she is – you bring the President and his friends to the world.
Yes, Governor Crist the Republican Party left you. It also left America. It is the John Birch Party with an 18th Century plutocratic agenda.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 07, 2012
Any remaining ‘Republican’ and a bunch of Independents are very likely to be voting for President Obama after hearing Gov Crist.
Bet on it: No speaker tonight will infuriate team Romney in Boston more than Charlie Crist right now. #NBCPolitics— Garrett Haake (@GarrettNBCNews) September 07, 2012
@GarrettNBCNews Gov Crist is correct. The GOP left him. It also left America in the ditch. It is the John Birch Party; bigoted plutocrats.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 07, 2012
Chips, have I told you lately that I love you? Well I do!
I second that emotion
Wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww….amazing sppech by Crist
Unprecedented and exceptional … the ads are writing themselves tonight!!!
what do you think about the rumors that Kerry is inline to be the next Secretary of State
John Kerry: This is not the time to outsource the role of Commander-in-chief – that about covers it
Oh my goodness. This is so poignant.
Damn, how did we let this man lost to to that imbecile?— BWD (@theonlyadult) September 07, 2012
Karl Rove and the swiftboaters spread LIES about him constantly, then tampered with votes in Ohio. What a different place we would have been in if GWB had not had those last four years!!! GWB was really an illegitiate president all eight years.
John Kerry: An exceptional country DOES care about the rise of the oceans and future of the planet. #DNC2012— (@aspirational12) September 07, 2012
So well said – the world listens
@JohnKerry – INDEED. This is NOT the time to OUTSOURCE the job of Commander in Chief to a pack of #NEOCONSTERS who only want war for profit.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) September 07, 2012
Ask Osama bin Laden if he’s better off now than he was 4 years ago. Oh, I’m sorry…
That line killed!
Kerry: Talk about being for it, before you were against it. Before you debate foreign policy with Barack Obama, you’d better finish the debate with yourself.
Thank you John Kerry for saying the word “lied”——that the other side has lied about every position of Obama’s. Everyone should say they lied, not misspoke or fibbed or misrepresented or misled. No, they lied. They lie. Continuously and repeatedly.
you know …dot….
because the untruths that they say are intentional and they know them to be false….and that is what makes them lies…not just errors…or misspokes……
John Kerry: “Mitt Romney, before you debate President Obama on foreign policy, you should finish debating with yourself.”
Wow John Kerry bought the pain with that line.
ohhhhh myyyy gooodness….Kerry about Romney ….before you have a debate with PBO you better finish that debate with yourself……….
it’s really hitting me that this entire convention is a healing salve on the wounds that the republicans and the billionaire owners of all the media have been purposely cutting into the american body politic for 30 years and more.
the gabby giffords pledge was the perfect embodiment of that, where that man filled with anti-government hate shot her and killed those people with his media programmed rage, and there she is tonight basically healing us all from the horror and honoring those poor victims. it explains why every other speaker turns me into a blubbering mess. this is a national purge of the republican poison. forward, america and the world with democrats and president obama!!
4more, you have stated it beautifully…..”a healing salve……wounds for 30 years.” Yes, it has been that long.
John Kerry is a riot. He is killing Willard. My sides are hurting.
John Kerry is doing a FABULOUS job here. WOW.
Hell! Kerry is pretty funny. Finish the debate with yourself Romney before you debate the President.
D’ya think Kerry got an ax to grind. He’s mad bout that swiftboating thing they did
Rmoney lost some votes when he didn’t mention the veterans in his speech – he lost a whole lot more when John Kerry spoke
John Kerry: "Sarah Palin said she could see Russia from Alaska. Mitt Romney talks like he's only seen Russia from Rocky IV!" #DNC2012— (@utaustinliberal) September 07, 2012
Lol you know this Dem convention is like watching a boxing matching …one body blow after the next.
Romney is so dumb he had a chance to get out early
Joe Kennedy III just won the Mass primary
It almost seem that anything the republicans say or do after this convention will be irrelevant. A girl can only dream.
Kerry was Outstanding… so glad he twisted the knife a bit, that was owed to him. Bigtime. I swear they’re feeding off the energy of one another.. the whole room is amazing.. I can feel it through my screen. I am so very very proud of Democrats & our convention.
Kerry comes equipped with a quiver of very sharp lines. It's clear he has Romney in his head: He's playing Romney in debate prep with Obama.— Jeff Zeleny (@jeffzeleny) September 07, 2012
Hey guys. Just 6:00 here in Phoenix. Are they in the smaller venue yet or is this the same as the last two days? Does the venue change just for the VP and President speeches?
I read that it changed due to the weather.
The smaller venue is this one. They were going to move to an outside stadium (larger venue) but deiced against it because of rain and thunderstorm.
I believe it’s in the same arena as the first two days.
John Kerry: "Ask Osama Bin Laden if he's better off now than he was four years ago. Oh, I'm sorry…." #DNC2012— (@utaustinliberal) September 07, 2012
Kerry told Romney in some many words that President Obama is coming for his ass when the debates start.
Gabby and her husband holding the “Thank You” signs in tribute to our Veterans and those on active duty is just beyond … beyond …
Wow this whole tribute to our armed forces and for PBO’s efforts on their behalf is just mind numbing -I’m speechless—–
Very moving film narrated by Tom Hanks on all facets of the military and the positive differences President Obama & Co. has made to all involved. Personal tributes now on stage on the support they have received from the Obamas and the Bidens.
Have to echo the many comments above about Ms. Granholm. She gave a knockout speech. Loved the roll call. This really has been a great convention. Going to be sad when it’s over.
I saw FLOTUS! She looks gorgeous as usual.
I sure tear up each time they show Gabby
New post everyone:
Thu Sep 6th, 2012 at 08:35:50 PM EST
Here’s a thread for convention-watchers who want to make observations. I’m a little sad tonight because this really is going to be the last speech Obama has to give where his political career is riding on the outcome. We’ll probably see State of the Union addresses, and we’ll probably see him speak to the nation after some tragedy or another, but he’ll never again have to perform on this level with this amount of pressure. And it has always been a joy to watch Barack Obama perform as a politician. It’s the same kind of joy you get from watching a Gold Medal performance in the Olympics, or a successful Mars landing, or a really great rendition of a Beethoven symphony, or any other area where humans step up to the spotlights under pressure and just nail it. He’s been the Mohammed Ali of politics for five years. He’s had his bad fights; he’s underestimated an opponent or two. But he’s been magnificent.
Yes, we still have the debates. But Obama has never been better than adequate at debating. Tonight is his last real chance to show us what he can do.
What a beautiful tribute…..tears flowing.
Where are the girls? FLOTUS looks divine!!!
Thanks to all of our military veterans, past, present, and future – and their families! We the People won’t forget you.
Adm. John Nathman is very handsome! I loved his speech, too. Beautiful tribute to our amazing military men and women!!!! Senator John Kerry…BAMMMMMMM, that’s gonna leave a mark!
Checking to see if the networks are airing any of this? Nope. CBS and ABC are airing some mindless shows, shows for dummies. (sorry but true) NBC has coverage but it was David Gregory telling Brian Williams that there are many who no longer care for President Obama and his policies but don’t like the personal attacks he receives and Obama will try to connect with those people tonight. What??? MSNBC and CNN think that their pundits are more worthy than the convention—–why would anyone listen to them babbling away about their deep thoughts on the convention when you can just watch the convention?
David Gergen is a doofus!!!! He said that if he were Vice President Biden he would feel a little hurt because he doesn’t have his own night. John King took up for the President saying the convention was cut to 3 days.
OBAMA’S PULLING UP TO THE STADIUM!!!!
Excellent speech from Joe Biden. True heart.
