Two Choices: Hillary or Trump
Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council posted an excellent commentary today about
Bernie Sanders supporters aren't the only ones frustrated with the DNC. So is the press. After a single day on the ground, the Left's cheerleaders are already fed up with the horrible conditions at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. And they aren't just talking about the gender-free bathroom (although that's gotten its own share of complaints). The event is so disorganized that people like Yahoo News's editor-in-chief took to Twitter to complain. "To be totally objective and nonpartisan: the logistics at DNC are appalling. Squalid hotels, sweltering workspace, no directions. Chaos."
From the New York Times to CNN, reporters everywhere are exasperated, railing against the distance between venues, lack of air conditioning, late busses, and security lines. It makes you wonder: if the Democrats can't run a convention, how could they possibly run a country? Inside Wells Fargo Arena, the party has been rocked by the email scandal, which pulled back the curtain on the DNC's vicious attack politics.
Making matters worse, another terrorist attack in France came just hours after the DNC wrapped up Day 1. Yet even after the string of violence across Europe these last two weeks, not one of the Democrats' 61 speakers even mentioned the word terrorism from the stage. Politifact confirmed the glaring omission this morning, noting that, "Based on our searches of C-SPAN closed-captioning text, Congressional Quarterly transcripts and other video archiving services, we couldn't find any speaker who mentioned 'ISIS,' 'Islamic' 'terror,' 'terrorist,' or 'terrorism' during the first day of the convention."
