Democratic Convention to Include Several Republicans
Well, here’s an unusually brilliant move from the DNC — the Democratic Convention is planned to include several Republicans.
The Republican Party has gone completely insane in the past four years, and putting some of the remaining sane Republicans on the podium (assuming they can actually find any) could be a powerful statement.
Advisers to President Barack Obama are scripting a Democratic National Convention featuring several Republicans in a prime-time appeal to independents — and planning a blistering portrayal of Mitt Romney as a heartless aristocrat who “would devastate the American middle class,” Democratic sources tell POLITICO.
According to convention planning documents, the three-night convention in Charlotte, N.C., early next month will seek to “[e]xpose Mitt Romney as someone who doesn’t understand middle class challenges” while also burnishing “the President’s image as someone whose life story is about fighting for middle class Americans and those working to get into the middle class.”
Meanwhile, if you need any further proof for my assertion about the GOP’s total lack of mental health, here you go: Donald Trump Will Have ‘Memorable’ Role at GOP Convention.
