U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., went into a tirade when questioned why the Democratic Party, for the first time ever, removed God and support for Israel from its platform. He insisted it was a non-issue and the question was posed only to brand the Democrat Party as godless.
There was such a backlash against these issues being removed that a decision was made to vote to reinsert them. Two-thirds was needed for passage. The vote was taken three times.
Those voting no screamed louder and louder, and the embarrassed mayor of L.A. declared, before millions of viewers, two-thirds voted in the affirmative and they would be inserted back in the platform. The delegates booed and jeered.
The most disgusting display by women speakers who declare the killing of unborn innocent life is a woman's health issue and demanded the taxpayer be financially responsible for their lousy life choices.
The real war on women is the price of gas, food and loss of 15 percent more jobs under this administration.
The mainstream media, refuse to ask the questions or run stories showing the administration in a bad light. No one was inferring the Democratic Party was godless. Their own vote and total disregard for human life said it all.
