2012 The Democratic National Convention Speakers List: A Who’s Who Of Extremists

4 years ago the Democrats had a convention that tried to convince the American people that their party was one of inclusiveness.  Their speakers were moderates, Blue Dogs, pro-life, and not a liberal, not a progressive in sight.  Today it is opposite.  Today some of the most extreme liberals and progressives the party has will speak.  They will bash Mitt Romney as a rich man who hates people.  They will praise Barack Hussein Obama as the second Coming.  They will tell the American people that government knows what’s best and will tell you what is best for your life too.  But will they succeed?

Next week is the 2012 Democratic National Convention and they have provided a list of speakers, which includes the President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund and Ms. Sandra “taxpayers should pay for college student’s birth control pills” Fluke.

Note– Going through the list and adding links to controversial statements, unfavorable ratings, scandals and disagreements with Obama’s attacks against Romney by some of the very speakers listed, and those that voted for Obamacare, it is apparent that while the GOP 2012 Convention highlighted diversity in the party and while appealing to their base, they also made sure to be inclusive, to make their case to those undecided voters, centrists, moderates, conservative Democrats and

The Democratic list is a who’s who of far far left liberal extremists who have often alienated undecided voters un-apologetically.

Obviously Democrats have decided they need to rally their base because of the enthusiasm gap that favors Republicans heading into the November elections, without a care to appealing to moderates, undecideds, centrists and Independents.

The perfect Convention for Liberals, scripted by liberals,  produced by the Obama Regime with the help of the Hollywood elite.  The MSM especially MSNBC will praise every speaker, every speech as a masterpiece.  But will the American people buy it?  I hope not.

Let his days be few, let another take his office.  —  Psalm 109: 8


Linked at Stop the ACLU – Will Obama Address You Didn’t Build That at the DNC? – thank you!

  • I notice many of these extremist have in parenthesis “voted for Obamacare”. I am assuming that is the defining factor in the extremism as it should be. However, that makes many Republican extremist too like Mitt Romney when you look at the history of the bill which was originally penned by the Heritage Foundation and the GOP as the alternative to Hillarycare in 1994, and soon became Massachusetts’ nightmare when Romney signed it into law. The truth about the healthcare takeover in the United States is a sad truth.

    • BB, I hope and I believe that this is a different day, a different time and a wholly new age in politics. I don’t like a lot of Romney’s past, but I do believe that politicians and businessmen/women can learn and change. As I’ve said before, we went many years without We the People caring, or speaking out or paying attention to the Constitution. Those days are past. I hope Romney-Ryan fulfill the promises they have made. At this point there is no other solution. I believe they will do it. I believe no Republican Governor would institute a RomneyCare today, as they did back then and I believe that few Republicans would vote for another TARP. This is not yesterday.

      Now the job is to elected them and get Conservatives into the Senate.

  • findalis and Susan, great list. Thanks so much.

    What is this going to be? The nights of one minute speeches? Barney Frank?, the one that contributed to our ongoing recession. No one seems to remember the democratic take-over of the House & Senate during the last two years of the Bush administration….or should I say the take-down of the Bush administration. I’m surprised they haven’t called Senator Dodd to speak….another snake who brought down the country. I’m sure he’s enjoying his little cottage in Ireland! Every time the President blames Bush, all you have to do is look at the Democrats who were in charge of Congress. They were truly to blame.

    I am voting for a man who loves our country, no doubt in my mind, Mitt Romney. This is America’s last chance. Sink or swim, it’s your choice.

  • many conservatives are saying they won’t waste their time watching the DNC. I, on the other hand, will be looking forward to hearing how they intend to grow the economy and create jobs with their botto-up economics. I never got a job from a poor person. This ought to be fun to watch.
