7:16 PM PT: The video introducing President Obama is now playing.
7:16 PM PT: Narrated by George Clooney.7:18 PM PT:
7:19 PM PT: Where's the empty chair?7:20 PM PT: 7:21 PM PT: Yeah, but "Don't move heaven and earth to get Bin Laden" doesn't make for a good video.
7:22 PM PT: Karl Rove once used that clip of Clinton praising President Obama's bin Laden decision ... to attack Obama ... for getting bin Laden. Republicans as a whole aren't bad people. But their leaders really are bad.
7:23 PM PT: More Michelle! Yay!
7:24 PM PT: A hug on stage:
7:26 PM PT: "Malia and Sasha, you make me so proud. And yes, you do have to go to school in the morning."
7:26 PM PT: "Madam Chairwoman, delegates, I accept your nomination for the presidency of the United States."
7:27 PM PT: Chants of "Four more years." Almost like the way they kept on chanting for Mitt in Tampa, right? Oh wait...
7:29 PM PT: The president outlines the stakes:
When all is said and done – when you pick up that ballot to vote – you will face the clearest choice of any time in a generation. Over the next few years, big decisions will be made in Washington, on jobs and the economy; taxes and deficits; energy and education; war and peace – decisions that will have a huge impact on our lives and our children’s lives for decades to come.
On every issue, the choice you face won’t be just between two candidates or two parties.
It will be a choice between two different paths for America.
7:32 PM PT: Haha:
Now, our friends at the Republican convention were more than happy to talk about everything they think is wrong with America, but they didn’t have much to say about how they’d make it right. They want your vote, but they don’t want you to know their plan. And that’s because all they have to offer is the same prescription they’ve had for the last thirty years:
“Have a surplus? Try a tax cut.”
“Deficit too high? Try another.”
“Feel a cold coming on? Take two tax cuts, roll back some regulations, and call us in the morning!”
