Democrats Reinstate Jerusalem and God Language into DNC Platform Despite Booing. Attendees voice their opposition to Democratic Party platform changes reinserting language supporting Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and a reference to God.
With heavy booing from dissenters, the Democratic National Convention voted Wednesday to reinstate language supporting Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to restore a reference to God in its party platform. DNC Chairman and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa conducted a voice vote of the delegates on the proposed platform changes, asking for yeses and nos three times because of how similar the responses sounded.

According to the Associated Press, President Barack Obama personally intervened to get the platform changed back. Democrats Remove ‘God’ From 2012 Party Platform. Photo Credit: FILE The Democratic Party may be getting a fair amount of attention this week — and not only because the political movement is hosting its national convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Another point of focus has already been the contents — or the lack thereof — present in the 2012 Democratic Party Platform. Earlier today, we told you that the document fails to mention Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a proclamation that was previously touted by the party. And now, in an even more shocking revelation, CBN News is reporting that the Democrats have removed mentions of “God” from the document as well. (RELATED: ‘Godless’: Sen. This is a departure from the past. In the end, the Democratic platform doesn’t mention the words “God” or “Lord” even one time. Factchecker: Romney’s ’12 million jobs’ promise. “And unlike the president, I have a plan to create 12 million new jobs.” -- Mitt Romney This sounds like a pretty bold statement, especially considering that only two presidents—Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton—created more than 12 million jobs.
Romney, in fact, says he can reach this same goal, in just four years, though the policy paper issued by his campaign contains few details. It is mostly a collection of policy assertions, such as such as reducing debt, overhauling the tax code, fostering free trade and so forth. But, in fact, the number is less impressive than it sounds. This pledge amounts to an average of 250,000 jobs a month, a far cry from the 500,000 jobs a month that Romney claimed would be created in a “normal recovery.”

Obama Lies While Accusing the Romney Campaign of Lying.

» Thank you Elizabeth Warren (for possibly costing Obama the election) Posted by William A. Jacobson Thursday, July 19, 2012 at 1:52pm Obama has stepped in it big time, and we have Elizabeth Warren to thank. Obama gave voice to his political creed in the form of parroting Warren’s famous rant about factory owners: Here’s Obama’s rendition (and a Romney response): Let’s cut to the very quotable few seconds which should and likely will be on every television in every swing state a thousand times between now and the election: This collectivist view of our economic system is alien to the vast majority of Americans. Latest Propaganda from Team Obama.
The Obama propaganda team has stooped to a new level … and that’s saying something. The issue is over Obama’s comments about building a business. You’ve heard me railing for the entire week now about his comments last Friday in Roanoke, "If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. " That’s not my paraphrasing, those words are straight from the SCOAMF’s mouth.

If so, President Obama must be really sick of that particular ritual. Why?

Which, needless to say, is relatively unlikely. MSNBC’s Touré: Romney Engaging In The ‘Niggerization’ Of Obama.
