DNC on Wednesday
This guy is definitely a subpar pick for VP. Of course, not as bad as Sarah Palin or Geraldine Ferraro, nevertheless, this guy is pure beta-male and has no aura of gravitas. Voters want gravitas in a vice president. Dick Cheney had gravitas. Mike Pence has gravitas.
Kaine also frequently switched from English to Spanish, reminding all of the white working-class voters that the Democrats’ open-borders policies are turning the United States into another Mexico. Not a good way to reach out to undecided voters.
Mike Bloomberg and Joe Biden:
They both spoke in the 9 to 10 hour, and they were the DNC’s best speakers as far as reaching out to undecided voters who are leaning towards Trump. But they were only two speakers, in contrast to the parade of women and minorities speaking to the leftmost wing of the party and turning off any white male (as well as many a white female) who happens to tune in.
Obama’s speech (devoid of any Spanish) made the mainstream media news commentators gush like teenage girls at a Justin Bieber concert. Never before have I seen such a display of partiality. However, Barrack Obama’s speech started at 11 and ended at a quarter to 12. I am sure they lost a large percentage of the audience by that time, especially on the east coast where people had to go to sleep in order to go to work the next morning. The DNC is supposed to be so much more organized than the RNC, yet they had their best speaker run so late. Huge screwup.
And even though Obama’s speech made grown men cry (CNN’s Van Jones said that delegates cried, but I’m not sure I believe him), he’s not the guy who’s running for office. How many votes does Hillary pick up because the guy who’s leaving office made a killer speech?
