Democratic convention

I'm not sure if anyone from Bristol is going to the convention in Denver, but I'm sure many will be watching off and on (more off than on, no doubt). Here's a thread to weigh in on what you're seeing and hearing, the good and the bad.
Please try to contain the slams against each other and just write comments that reflect what you think about the convention and the related politics.
I'll do the same when the Republican convention rolls around.
PS: If anybody's there, or going, let me know. You can always write to me at scollins@bristolpress.com.

Not sure if the secret is out yet but Mayor Ward really didn't go out-of-town to the Legion baseball tourney - he was really interviewing with Obama at an undisclosed location as a potential VP. He wasn't selected, but will be introducing Obama at the convention.

I'll be at the convention. I'm a union hack Democrat delegate (almost all of us delegates are actually, except for the abortionists and the gay marriage proponents). I'll be staying in a nice hotal paid for directly by the union. One reason is that in Connecticut unions can use their moneys collected from dues directly for campaign contributions, although trade organizations like the CBIA can not under Connecticut law. That's because like the Democrat Party, the Democrat dominated state legislature is controlled by the unions. I'll tell you all how it's going soon! Keep voting union hacks like Chris Wright into office and my bennies and perks will even get better!

This site has a list of the convention deletates and alternates from Connecticut:

None are from Bristol.
But that doesn't mean that some people from Bristol might not be going some other way. I'd like to know if anyone is.

Is Gardner Wright a delegate? Is that how he got those road work sings that sonnie boy is using for his campaign signs? Who paid for those anyways? Maybe those were the signs the state used when they built Bill O'Niel his cottage on Lake Pocotopaug?

Wise guy dumb republicans at it again.

Don't fret! The GOP will make sure those signs are in his filing with the SEEC. New laws forbid any in-kind donations at all! So he better be on the up, or he is in violation and risk a nice hefty fine. Especially since he just received 25K from the state.

yep, seems as though the gop is real good at trying to degrade and spy on democrats - too bad that the gop wasn't as good in positive promotion for getting their own candidates elected.
must be thinking that the object isn't to get republicans elected to office, their objective is to not get democrats elected - twisted, twisted, twisted.

Gee what a terrible thing. The opposition is making sure that the heavily favored and well-armed (with political machinery) Democrat is abiding by the law.
Makes us all wish we were back in mother Russia.
You Dumb-o-crat hacks should be ashamed.

It's nice to see that Barack Obama is keeping to his policy of changing the American system of politics .


Historically the convention brings with it a dramatic jump in points for the party holding it's convention .

It's pleasing to see that mr. obama has changed history by having a drop in points when HE holds HIS convention .

Keep up the good work mr. obama .!!!!

It SO kills you Republicans that this time it's the Democrats who have the good-looking guy with no experience who makes happy talk with no substance. We finally learned from you.

You're referring to Bush? Oh yeah he was elected Governor of the largest state in the union twice and he learned first hand from his father's two terms as VP and one term (should have been two) as President. That's right no experience.

Or maybe the actor Reagan? Oh but let's forget that he was one of the greatest (and two term) Governors of another huge state (California) during some of it's hardest times. Reagan pulled California out of fiscal and economic ruin as he did the USA.

Again you cluless Bristol Dumb-o-crat buffoons have no idea what you're talking about.

This convention lacks any real energy. The speakers don't seem that convicted to their candidate.

The fact of the matter is that many of the Democrats have found a friend in John McCain over the years and truly don't see him as another George Bush. When they try to make that association it just seems like fake rhetoric.

Even Hillary Clinton, the headliner, spoke last night with far less charisma than she usually does when she is delivering her own promises.

The Democrats need to step it up a few notches if they want to excite and convince the undecided voters or even Hillary's former supporters.

talk about the reason that people are turned off and sickened by politics - what a bunch of pesimistic, sadistic " watch me pee my pants" idiots - probably can't even wipe yourselves.
