    I'm very concerned that the Dems are going to get suckered again into a convention that does not call the Republican Party to account for their lies and hypocrisy. It happened inn 2004.

    One thing Democrats seem to forget is that they are engaged in a struggle for power in the richest country in the world against an opponent party that represents barbarism. There are no rules. Their only purpose must be to win. Let the other side complain about our rulebreaking on the day after the election. That means they lost.

        Republican Convention was crafted to portray them as just a group of folks that want to create jobs and save Medicare, too, but, shucks, Obama just isn't getting it done, so it's "time to change the coach." Their entire public existence is a lie.
