Barack Obama accepted the Democratic Nomination
Last night President Obama and Democrats joined to be a force of one seeking his re-election as President of the United States. Barack Obama gave a rousing speech which highlighted the several ways in which Team Romney-Ryan lacks foreign policy credentials a proper regard for our military and veterans. Some say he capitalized on the omissions from the Republican National Convention. Have you joined Team Obama-Biden? It’s not too late!
Simply put, the Tea Party has exercised their power in the US House to the detriment of the United States. Their stubborn refusal to negotiate with Democrats brought to the brink of an unprecedented shutdown. They blackmailed President into giving the TOP 1% a tax break that they did not deserve in exchange for extending unemployment insurance. The Tea Party cost us our “AAA” credit rating! Their power over Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor has led our government down the wrong road. Our best interests and future security cries out for ALL VOTERS in November to vote for US House and US Senate who are not and do reject the Tea Party philosophies. And, while you’re at it, find someone other than a Tea Party candidate on the local and state levels. Fellow Americans, this is our only option for taking back our country. MAKE AMERICA OURS AGAIN! —GoodOleWoody

Did you watch Bill Clinton last night at the Democratic National Convention? He gave a master class in winning our PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION! It included all the bells and whistles that a “Bill Clinton” has mastered. Such analysis! So many strategies! Debbie Wasserman-Shultz, if only you could bottle “Bill Clinton” and distribute him directly to our surrogates and volunteers! Do you agree? Didn’t Bill give us the blueprint for our victory in the end game? Didn’t he arrange the “Xs and Os” to assure our victory in November? (Our fourth quarter?) I dare not advise you, but, I am buoyed by the balloon that I have been riding since Bill Clinton addressed the Convention last night. Yes, I watched some of the Republican National Convention last week. While watching our convention, I said to myself, “Now this is how to put on a convention!” The Democratic National Convention is brilliant! Chris Matthews made a wise suggestion on air: ‘Instead of sending staff members to fight our battles on television, rallies, etc., send our Democratic stars like the ones who shined at our podium this week.’ I SMELL VICTORY!

(CNN) – First lady Michelle Obama walked onto the stage of the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday night fully aware of the task at hand.
It was her job to paint her husband – the president – as a family man and as a leader with a vision for the country.
She passed with flying colors – pink and grey to be exact.

Twitter reported more than 28,000 tweets per minute during Obama’s prime time speech, nearly double that of Republican candidate Mitt Romney’s.
And many of them focused on what she had on.
Obama lit up the arena in a luminescent rosy pink dress with grey floral detailing. Perhaps the most physically fit of all the first ladies, she showed off her toned arms and shoulders in the sleeveless cut frock, with just a sliver of her back through a small key hole. The full knee-length skirt had an easy element of movement as she approached the podium.
The first lady turned to African-American designer Tracy Reese for the night’s dress.
She’s worn Tracy Reese on numerous occasions, including the Easter Egg Roll and her photo shoot with People Magazine.
“Michelle Obama is the epitome of grace & wisdom. Her speech was utterly inspiring…so was her dress, perfect skin and arms. #2012DNC,” tweeted Lauren Molina of New York. FULL ARTICLE
