While I am looking at political videos, here is an interesting video made by Peter Schiff. He went undercover at the Democratic National Convention posing as some sort of anti business nut.
To be fair, there is no way to know if the people he interviewed are representative of the people who attended, or what sort of editing he did. Most likely, he cut out the more rational responses. Still, this video shows why Democrats should never be trusted in any position at any level of government. I would go so far as to suggest that the clowns in this video are too ignorant to be allowed to vote. Do these idiots have any idea how an economy actually works? Do they seriously think that the companies that provide them with the things they need would, or could continue to operate if they weren’t allowed to make a profit? I doubt they think much at all.
The Democratic Party Platform somehow neglected to mention God in the context of God-given potential as well not affirming the position of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Normally no one pays any attention to party platforms but the Republicans didn’t waste anytime making use of this absence to imply that the Democrats are anti-God and anti-Israel. The Democrats quickly put the language back into the platform with amazing results.
This had to be intensely embarrassing for Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. I am not sure whether the people at the convention are actually booing the mention of God into the platform or the affirmation of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Either way, this show a party badly out of step with mainstream American public opinion.
These conventions are supposed to be tightly scheduled affairs with little or nothing left to chance. There shouldn’t be any unpleasant surprises like the one shown in that video. Even worse than the impression that the Democrats are out of touch with mainstream America is the impression that they aren’t able t get their act together.
Will this little embarrassment matter in November? Probably not. By then, it will be long forgotten. But if this is how they are going to run their campaign, then maybe the results won’t even be close.
