Huff Post: Michelle Obama -- the Democratic crowd went wild.


PHILADELPHIA ― First lady Michelle Obama on Monday asked Americans to decide who they want serving as a role model for their children ― Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.

This election, Obama said during her speech at the Democratic National Convention, “is about who will have the power to shape our children for the next four or eight years of their lives.”

The crowd waved purple signs that read simply, “Michelle.”

Obama made clear that this election will determine who will give hope
to the next generation, or instill fear.

“Every word we utter, every action we take, we know they are
watching,” Obama said. “We as parents are their most important role

That 11 year old girl. Wow. She and Elijah Cummings are the highlights for me, so far.

And we're just getting started.

I'm loving Elijah Cummings."This election is bigger than all of us.Its about generations yet unborn"

And I didn't hear boos when he mentioned Hillary's name. . . .

Deadbeat Trump strikes again: refuses to pay a vendor $34K. Gets sued. Loses $300K.

This is how he's made his fortune -- stiffing people.

Most of them decide its not worth it to pursue him, but this stubborn vendor spent $300K in attorney's fees to get $34K that Trump owed to him.

But Trump will keep doing this because he knows most people, unlike this paint seller, won't think it's worth taking a chance on losing.


While developer Donald Trump was busy getting the Republican Party’s presidential nomination this week, he was losing big in a Miami-Dade County courtroom.

Circuit Court Judge Jorge Cueto, presiding over a lawsuit related to unpaid bills brought by a local paint store against the Trump National Doral Miami golf resort, ordered the billionaire politician’s company to pay the Doral-based mom-and-pop shop nearly $300,000 in attorney’s fees.

All because, according to the lawsuit, Trump allegedly tried to stiff The Paint Spot on its last payment of $34,863 on a $200,000 contract for paint used in the renovation of the home of golf’s famed Blue Monster two years ago.

Can anyone point to specific emails sent by DSW that are truly offensive

and/or indicate that actions were taken against Bernie's campaign?

Other than Brad Marshall's email, I haven't read any that were truly offensive or show that some action was taken against Bernie.

For example, answering "LOL" to a claim of Weaver's they disagreed with certainly doesn't qualify -- in my view -- but I saw that listed in one article.

Kudos to Bernie Sanders for not letting himself be drawn into a Democratic hate-fest. n/t

Malik Obama, the half-brother endorsing Trump, was best friends with Libyan dictator Moammar Khadafy

He’s also annoyed that Clinton and President Obama killed Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy, whom he called one of his best friends.

He's also pissed off that Barack Obama didn't help him run for governor in Kenya.

Malik Obama sought to capitalize on his now-famous surname by running for governor of the Kenyan county of Siaya in 2013, but he was defeated in that election by a wide margin. He made headlines in the U.S. in July 2016 when he announced to the New York Post that he would be voting not for his brother's putative Democratic successor, Hillary Clinton, but for Republican candidate Donald Trump


This is from a Boston Globe piece a year ago:


“He’s not an honest man,” Malik said.

Then it got even crazier: Malik speculated that Obama’s real father is actually a communist named Frank Marshall Davis, indulging the wild theory that Gilbert had put forth in his “documentary” Dreams of My Real Father.

After years of serving as fodder for the far right, Obama’s brother has officially joined them. Then he had the gall to lament that he hasn’t been invited to the bigwig dinner during the presidential visit.

“It’s a big humiliation,” Malik said. “He doesn’t want anything to do with me anymore.”

Gee. I can’t imagine why.

CNN: Donna Brazile will be the interim head of the DNC till a replacement for DSW is chosen.

DSW has announced her resignation as of the end of the convention.

CNN: Wasserman Schultz resigning as party leader


Debbie Wasserman Schultz is stepping down as chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee at the end of the party's convention, which is set to begin here Monday.

The Florida congresswoman's resignation -- under pressure from top Democrats -- comes amid hackers' release of emails that show DNC staffers favoring Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the party's 2016 nominating contest.

Wasserman Schultz announced her resignation in a statement Sunday afternoon, saying she remains committed to seeing Clinton elected president.

"Going forward, the best way for me to accomplish those goals is to step down as Party Chair at the end of this convention," Wasserman Schultz said in her statement.


Democrats changing superdelegate rules; a Sanders win


On Saturday, after a lengthy debate during the Democratic Party’s rules committee — as Occupy protesters marched outside — the Sanders and Clinton delegates agreed to create a “unity” commission. The commission will be charged with developing rules that would reduce the number of superdelegates by two-thirds. It will also give Sanders, Clinton and the Democratic National Committee each the responsibility of picking members for the commission.

“This is a tremendous victory for Senator Sanders’ fight to democratize the Democratic Party and reform the Democratic nominating process,” Jeff Weaver, Sanders’ campaign manager, said in a statement. “We were pleased to work with the Clinton campaign to enact this historic commission.”
