Democrats Change Platform by Fiat

with one comment

Kinda makes you wonder who’s really pulling the strings…

Today, the DNC made a change to their party platform that, rather forcefully, returned to the platform, language that supported God and recognized that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel.

But I really have a tough time believing that the Governor Ted Strickland, who was the chair of the committee that wrote the national platform, didn’t see this one until late last night when they drafted the amendment.

Now listen to the video and see if you think 2/3’s majority of the party voted to put “God” and “Jerusalem” back into the platform.  Now I know the audio on this is extremely subjective, but it would seem that this one was ramrodded.  I did read that one of the commenters of this clip ran the audio through Audacity and measured that the waveform of the “no” votes was clearly louder.  Anyway, what’s your opinion?

Vote One: It was pretty clear to me that it was “No”.

Vote Two: It wasn’t clear, but it sounded like the “no’s” still had it.

Did you hear what the woman behind Mr. Villaraigosa said.  She said, “You gotta rule, and then let them do what they’re gonna do”.   She urged him to basically make a decision and then move forward.

Vote Three: It was dead even.  So even if the “aye’s” had it, it wasn’t a 2/3’s majority.

So much for majority rule.  I guess the DNC is ruled by the same forces that drive the “Great Taste, Less Filling” crowd cheer, now.
