Awesome framing: "You did that!"

It's a thread weaving through everything he's said tonight. He gives all the credit to the people.

Absolutely awesome.

Fucking PBS doing the balancing act!!!

They have a Republican douche rocket with an "Obama is not workin" graphic behind him, yapping lies about Obama's first term. Had to mute the audio.

Hey! PBS? Fuck balance. This is our week. The douche bags had their chance last week and all they had was a fucking empty chair.

Martini time! Sköl everybody!

Or, your beverage of choice.

Raise a glass!

I love you all. And I love this convention.
And I love my President and all who work with him.

Here's to that!

The most intelligent speech yet.

She seems to be speaking w/o TelePrompTer. Am I correct?

This is high art.

I am in awe of what is happening tonight. Some observations...

The Democrats are bringing the battle directly to the Republicans. Normally, you do not mention your opponent at these affairs. But not only has the DNC put forth their vision, but they brought the battle to the Republicans in explicit terms.

Some highlights tonight...

The passion, especially the Congressional women. Whoa! Don't piss them off. Unfortunately, that's what the Republican Congress did. Their fail; our gain.

The soft spoken. I give you Harry "Golden Gloves" Reid and Jimmie Carter. Even they took the battle on -- but sotta voce. Gotta love it.

Again! This is high art.

Listening to the keynote now. This is devastating to the Republicans. They've set out their case and the Dems are disembowelling them.

And this is only the first night.

My favorite, but I am biased, is the speech that brought tears to Joe Biden, and to me. Tammy Duckworth. While the Republicans totally ignored the military in their convention, I wouldn't want any other person in the world to rebut that than Tammy. As a Lt. Col. she earned it. But that is not what it is about. Her courage and her love of her country when all was crashing down upon her is the measure of a person. Many would sit down and say that they've done enough. Not Tammy Duckworth.

Go to her Wikipedia page here: Tammy Duckworth and learn her incredible story.

People talk about future presidents here all the time. I'd put my money on Tammy.
