The Reinvention, Slander, Smear And Lie Convention
Sean, broadcasting live from a secret location in Charlotte, North Carolina opened Wednesday's show by discussing the general theme of last night's speeches at the podium of the Democratic National Convention - anger and negativity. Sean played a brief audio montage (which you can listen to HERE) which highlighted the anger oozing from the Democrats. "The one thing missing from all of that anger is 'we created jobs.' They haven't created jobs, they haven't cut the deficit in half."
Is It The Weather Or Fear Of Empty Seats?
Democrats scrapped plans to have President Obama accept his party's nomination in the 74,000 seat Bank of America stadium in Charlotte citing forecast thunderstorms. "Is it really because of the weather?" Sean asked facetiously. "Because the forecast only says the chance of rain is thirty percent. You don't cancel big events for only a thirty percent chance of rain. The reason they're moving it inside is because they're scared to death that they won't be able to fill the place. The last thing the Obama campaign needs is a comparison to Invesco Field where the stadium was half empty," said Sean. Even before the minor threat of rain Democrats were scrambling to fill the stadium. They set up a plan to bus in supporters from neighboring states, and used ducats as an incentive to get North Carolinians to volunteer for the campaign. Quite a big difference between Obama's outdoor acceptance speech in 2008 and the attendance expected for his speech tomorrow.
Richardson: President Gives Us A Path Forward
Sean, broadcasting live from the DNC convention in Charlotte, NC Democratic National Convention was joined by former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, who will gave a preview of what to expected over the next few days. Richardson argued that Obama deserves to be re-elected. "4.7 million new jobs have been created. I know the economy is hurting. But what this president wants to do is from the middle out; bolster the economy, for the middle class, for the worker. He's a pro-growth Democrat. He is somebody that wants to create jobs, he saved the auto industry. He gave us what I think is a good health care plan. Internationally, he decimated Al-Qaeda. He took out bin Laden," Richardson argued. Sean interrupted Richardson and argued that "the country has $16 trillion in debt, $5.4 trillion in Obama in three and a half years. We have a net loss of jobs, hundreds of thousands fewer Americans working than when he took office. That's not the guy who said he'd cut the deficit in half and get people working with shovel-ready jobs." To watch the entire lively debate between Sean and Richardson please click here.
