The Democratic National Convention 2012: We're winning
Watch live video here and join the conversation as we live blog the 2012 Democratic convention

6:51 PM PT: Chants of USA, USA, USA again throughout the hall as Biden recounts the killing of Osama bin Laden.

6:53 PM PT: "Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive." Brings down the house.

6:53 PM PT:
Obama Biden

6:55 PM PT: Hahaha, Biden mocks Romney and Ryan for saying they have the courage to make the tough calls ... without having the courage to say what calls they would make.

6:55 PM PT: And now he's talking Medicare. "What they didn't tell you is that" their Medicare plan would bankrupt it by 2016. "They're not for preserving Medicare at all." They've got a new plan. "It's called voucher care."

6:56 PM PT: On deficit reduction: "Not once, not one single time, did they tell you that they rejected every single plan put forward by us." Why? Because they wouldn't accept even one new cent of taxes on millionaires.

6:57 PM PT: Governor Romney doesn't believe it's important for American companies to invest in America, Biden says. He supports tax breaks for companies overseas, Biden says.

7:01 PM PT:
Gotta love another shout out to DREAMers -- from the Veep, "they've chosen to do right by America and we should do right by them"; #dnc2012

7:02 PM PT: "There's one more thing our Republican opponents are wrong about. America is not in decline. ... It never makes sense to bet against the American people."

7:03 PM PT: "We have no intention of downsizing the American dream." Love those lines.

7:05 PM PT:
Palin: Kerry 'diminished himself' with 'pot shot' at me

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
