My thanks to the Democratic National Convention for clarifying any misunderstanding of the Democratic Party. Before the convention I thought Mitt Romney wanted to tax the poor and give to the rich, Paul Ryan wanted to throw old ladies in wheelchairs over the cliff, Republicans wanted to take Social Security away from retirees and Medicare away from the elderly.
Now I get it! The Democrats preferred to take God out of the party platform and not say Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Sandra Fluke wants free birth control pills for premarital sex. Bill Clinton believes President Barack Obama's $16 trillion deficit and 8.1 percent unemployment makes us better off than George W. Bush's $5 trillion deficit and 7.4 percent unemployment. Obama didn't mean it when he said if he didn't fix our economic “mess” in four years he would be a one-term president. Democrats are the party of gay marriage, partial-birth abortion, socialized health care, spending our way out of debt, apologizing for America, forcing churches to abandon doctrinal belief and tolerance toward Iran if it gets a nuclear weapon.
I feel much better now. If Obama is re-elected, it gives great comfort knowing that, God forbid, if anything happens to him we have the intellectual depth, moral compass and articulate maturity of Joe Biden to assume the presidency.
