This just in.
Most people paying even scant attention know the democrats revealed who they really are as a party, as they expelled any mention of God from the party platform, as well as officially throwing Israel under the bus.
Knowing them as I and other informed conservatives do, they were certain this was just a minor adjustment to their overall, radical platform.
They were clearly taken by surprise at the backlash they received and the firestorm it caused.
They sent out old party hacks, such as Dick Turbin, not to defend the decision, but to dodge and deflect. It didn’t work.
I just witnessed the floor vote at the convention to reinsert God back into the platform. I’m not sure it was also for the Israel flap, but I assume so.
The man at the podium shouted, “All in Favor, say Aye!” Many shouted in the affirmative. He then shouted, “All opposed, say no!” Just as many as the ayes. He then repeated himself, with the same outcome. He tried a third time with the same results.
At this point he had the option to take a floor vote but declined. After some quick whispers to a colleague, he declared, “The ayes have it, measured passed.” Boos then resounded over the floor of the hall.
Watching the man squirming up there at the podium was almost sad. He clearly did not want to be put in this position.
I’m betting, the democrat campaign damage control experts set this up telling this poor sap, whatever happens, the ayes will prevail. There would be no floor vote. They could not take the chance of the no votes winning out.
Now that’s entertainment.
