Were You Inspired by First Lady Michelle Obama's Speech?

What did you think of the Democratic National Conventions first day of speeches?

The first day of speeches at this year's DNC included some of the Democratic Party's most promising rising stars including Newark Mayor Cory Booker and San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro. Lily Ledbetter's speech on equal pay and Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick's portrait of his predecessor Mitt Romney's tenure were also crowd favorites.

However, the undisputed star of the show was First Lady Michelle Obama, whose moving account of her life with our President and her hopes for our Nation has been widely hailed as one of the finest Convention speeches ever delivered.

So now that the Democrats have had a chance to give their initial answer to last week's Republican National Convention, what did you think? What is the biggest contrast you see between the two groups? Did Democratic speakers make a good case for President Obama's accomplishments? Are you looking forward to his speech on Thursday?

Yea. She's a real class act. I'm surprised they didn't invite Anthony Weiner. The dems have no problems with people like Fluke, Weiner, Clinton. Scumbags.

Obama- First President in history to have an Uncle who is an illegal immigrant fugitive from justice. Onyango Obama, Google him. He has the same drunk driving habits that Obama's father had, yet he is still in the US and has gotten his Massachusetts license back, which he obtained with a fraudulent social security number. Apparently Obama Jr. is all good with that and has pulled strings to keep his illegal posterior right here in the US. What happens when this drunken illegal kills somebody with his car? How are the Dems gonna spin that? Lawlessness, apparently, is OK, as long as you are not a US citizen. http://www.judicialwatch.org/blog/2012/07/ice-stonewalls-on-status-of-uncle-onyango-obama/

Larry - lolol You never hear about them from the locals here; only the baddies with an R beside their name.

I wouldn't count on an explanation from Obama. I'm sure he feels it's a benefit of being the ruler.

Sandra Fluke has no shame. What a loser to go before congress to tell the world that it isn’t “fair” unless hard working, responsible Americans finance her promiscuity as a single loose tramp. Of course democrats turned their backs on Weiner at the time. No one knew the extent of his Freaky-Deaky-Twitter-Litter. That pompous dimwit and Bill Clinton feel they are above the standards of morality that most Americans pride themselves of. No scruples those scumbags. I will be shocked if Weiner doesn’t rejoin the democrats someday, collecting a government paycheck again.
