RUSH: The Democrat convention's not until September. The Republican convention is this month. And the New York Times, nevertheless, has a story that says Democrats have outlined their convention plans. It says here, "Democrats will use the three-day Democratic National Convention next month to contrast President Obama with a portrayal of Mitt Romney as someone who would 'devastate the American middle class,' according to a news report Friday."
That's great. Here we are in the middle of middle class devastation. Here we are right smack dab in the middle of it. The middle class has been devastated these past 3-1/2 years right before our very eyes, right under our nose, in plain sight. The middle class is being devastated. And the architect of the destruction plans to use his convention to tell the American people that Romney is somebody who WOULD devastate the middle class.
"A convention planning document obtained by Politico," which means somebody gave it to them, "said the convention in Charlotte, NC, would focus on the choice for middle-class voters in November by using 'real people' to highlight the differences." This must be an admission by the Democrats that their own attendees don't look like real people. And they don't. That whole convention looks like a massive Star Wars bar scene if they endeavor to get close-ups of the convention floor.
That's a scary sight.
So what is this "real people"?
"The document said the convention would 'expose Mitt Romney as someone who doesn’t understand middle-class challenges' while also burnishing '[Obama's] image as someone whose life story is about fighting for middle-class Americans and those working to get into the middle class,'" of which there will be millions more because he's going to kick 'em out. Obama's going to send people running out of the middle class with no hope, through no choice of their own.
And it will be a nation of people trying to get back into the middle class. But would somebody tell me what the hell is this "life story" of Obama's? Does anybody know what his life story is? Well, yes, we do. But, I mean, there is no life story of Obama fighting for the middle class. There is no life story! We don't even have college transcripts. We don't have half the information or more about Obama. I wonder... Oh, they also say that they're going to have prominent Republicans, Mr. Snerdley. That's right.
"A 'major Republican' or 'notable GOP woman' may be part of the convention on at least two of the nights." Well I can tell you who one of them is going to be. That's right. I bet you it's going to be General Powell, Secretary Powell -- Titular Head of Republican Party -- the man they tell us we should all emulate. The ideal Republican! He endorsed Obama in '08 and will no doubt endorse him again, and will probably be one of these prominent Republicans at the Democrat convention.
"The first lady, Michelle [My Belle] Obama, will give remarks about her husband’s values and 'what his north star is,'" and that's in quotes: "[W]hat his north star is." "The president’s daughters, Sasha, 11, and Malia, 14, may say a few words about their father at the convention. Each night, 'real people' will appear to show the differences in the policies of Mr. Obama and Mr. Romney," and a "notable GOP woman" will appear. Who would that be? Who would the "notable GOP woman" be?
Olympia Snowe? Who would it be, seriously? Who pops into your mind when you hear "notable GOP woman" that might show up at an Obama convention. Does any notable woman shoot to your mind? Not mine either. I don't know who it is. I couldn't begin to tell you.
