I am still searching for a daily schedule which includes more than just Tuesday at the DNC but I’m not sure I’m going to find one. Seems like the schedules are still being finalized and maybe we’ll get the Wednesday schedule on Tuesday.

Here is a little rundown on the DNC highlights from WTSP:

The biggest name will be former President Bill Clinton. He will speak Wednesday night. San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro will give the keynote speech Tuesday evening. First lady Michelle Obama and former President Jimmy Carter will also speak that night. Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama will speak Thursday. Who won’t be speaking? Secretary of State Hilary Clinton.

The first two days of the convention will take place in downtown Charlotte, N.C. at the Times Warner Cable Arena. Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama will accept their nominations Thursday at Bank of America Stadium.

The Democratic National Convention Committee has announced the full line-up of performers set to take the stage at Time Warner Cable Arena and Bank of America Stadium this week.

“This roster of performances only adds to the excitement building in Charlotte for the historic week ahead of us,” said 2012 Democratic National Convention Chair Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. “The tens of thousands who will attend Convention events in person, and all those tuning in across the country, should be ready for quite a show.”

In the previous DNC 2012 post, I incorrectly stated that Joe Biden would be speaking Wednesday up against the NFL kickoff game. That is not the case, both Biden and President Obama will be speaking Thursday.

  1. Now for the important schedule:

    The musical acts will begin with Amber Riley, also known as Mercedes from Glee, who will open Tuesday’s events with the National Anthem.

    Performing on Wednesday will be Jessica Sanchez of American Idol fame as well as saxophonist Branford Marsalis.

    The biggest acts will appear on Thursday evening, the final night of the convention. Hip hop icon Mary J. Blige is on the roster, as are 70s group Earth, Wind, and Fire, as well as the Foo Fighters, Delta Rae; vocalist Marc Anthony will sing the National Anthem.

    Perhaps the biggest name on the DNC musical bill is James Taylor who will reportedly perform his classic “Carolina in My Mind.”

    • Great, as it should be. The convention is nothing but a big fund raiser heavily subsidized by the taxpayers. Still a rip off for the taxpayers but the delegates not bad at all for about $300.00. I know they end up spending about 10 times that on average.

  2. Nate:

    All I’ve found is some approximate times. The GOP convention has always been regimented and contrived. Dems seem to adlib their way through.

    As Will Rogers said, “I’m not a member of ANY organized political party. . .I’m a Demmycrat.”

  3. Democrates aren’t very good at organizing. They should have had the schedule weeks ago. I think Republicans could run the country better.

    • The operative word being “think.” Please don’t do that because it’s obvious that the GOPs convention left a lot to be desired, and let’s not forget all the lies. Now if FOX News calls you out on lies then you’ve told a whopper. lol

  4. They probably don’t want people to know what they are doing, and making it look like program not ready. Either way, not good. Am sure it will be a “fun”, every nationality involved” convention, but that doesn’t change the past 3+ years. Clinton should not back Pres Obama now, but I figure Pres Obama promised to back Hilery in 2016 if he did.

    • Well the GOP sure had a few bumps in the road in Tampa. They spent 50 million on security and got 2 arrests. One guy was blowing his nose and the arrested him for covering his face. (said the hankie was a mask}. The other guy had a knife in his sock, had it been a gun, no problem but he was in a no knife zone. Anyhow the 50 million is gone.

  5. Dr. Kelly,
    You are an absolute idiot! Why aren’t democrats good at organizing, because they planned this convention during hurricane season? Oh wait, that was the moronic republicans.

    • Easy, Sammy.

      The good doctor didn’t say enough to be called an idiot. And he certainly didn’t say enough to be certified as an “absolute” idiot. We have rules here.

      Also, he was just saying what he thinks. We’re all entitled to that.

      His only problem is he his memory only goes back 3 years.

    • Sammy, I got to agree with you there. The democrats are way ahead of the GOP as all business are happy in Charlotte. The GOP convention in Tampa put a lot of them out of business.

      • The only thing missing — the Red Square parade of IBMs, tanks and marching military, saluting Leonid Brezhnev….

          • Goethe Behr — only missing were the ICBM’s parading in front of Mitt’s balcony, where he stood slumped with the weight of all the medals pinned to his chest….

            • Come on now the guy does look presidential, or more like the used car salesman of the month. Ah, they both look the same.

            • Billy:

              Yeah, a used car salesman who would borrow from the bank to buy your trade in, take your money, give you his bank debt, and charge a fee on top of it. And when you get a newer car from him, you pay him, then get the bank debt he used to buy that car, and a fee for that transaction, too.

            • They just had something in the paper about that sort of thing here in the bay area. An offer to buy your worthless land in Az. after you father bought it from their father many years back. Don’t have to tell you the rest of the story but they did it is several other states before being caught down here. Not near as bad as Bain as no jobs lost only money but they are handing out jail time big time.

        • And even that is an understatement. Guess they are only after the over 80 vote. How can they be so rich and do such stupid things?

  6. I don’t think anyone will resort to talking to a chair either! A heck of a lot more real people here than at the Republican Convention.

  7. Clint Eastwood’s speech — mocking the BO and Biden (the delaware bidet). Also some good points on Politicians are OUR employees, and should be fired when failing us, among other good points and a silly one that the Mitt is a job-creating businessman (when his whole history at Bain is that of US job eliminations).

    This actor (professionally trained in speech and elocution) stumbled, bumbled and stuttered most of the time — yet still got a standing ovation (for the mixed bag of goods he delivered). So, an American Movie Icon is exempt from the MSM ridicule.

    However, when Ron Paul stutters on occasion when delivering an absolute and undeniable Truth — the mainstream media JUMPS all over and tries to belittle him.

    Gee, one would think that a True American Patriot — Ron Paul — deserves at least the same respect, if not more, than an actor!

    Clint’s 11 minute video:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yoqKdWY692k&feature=player_embedded

    • Do two wrongs make a right? ? ? I watch Clint on 60 minutes many years ago and that’s Clint. People that heard it will remember the content and isn’t that what counts?

  8. Bill Clinton may make the difference in this election.

    First, the Republicans, themselves, have elevated Bill, gambling that old animosities with Obama would prevent Clinton from biting them. Also, the gamble was that they could portray Obama as “liberal” compared to the wonderful, “triangulating” Clinton (if he remained silent).

    Second, Clinton IS surprisingly popular, especially with independents. And nobody can schmooze better’n Bubba. If he can keep his foot out of his mouth, he’ll have a real impact.

    Third, the GOP has nobody. Dubya is an “unperson.” Cheney is radio-active. McCain is not even popular with Republicans. There’s no way to predict what might come out of Palin’s mouth (which is why she was barred from the convention). Poppy Bush is popular with independents, but would turn off the GOP faithful. And James Danforth (“Dan”) Quayle–the male Palin–is he still alive? Just checked–he’s an investment banker, and would have made a perfect match as running mate for Willard-the-Wallet.

    So this campaign will be two against one, with Obama is appealing to women/minorities, and Bill appealing to white working people.

    Bubba and Barry should whip Willard, who will only be popular with those who think debt-financed corporate raiding is a laudable endeavor.

    Disclaimer: Willard’s pacs have more money than God, and we’ve seen in the primaries that votes CAN be bought.

      • Thank, Surfisher.

        When I sent it, I thought you’d be upset that I didn’t just say it wouldn’t matter, since we’re all going to write in Ron Paul, anyway.

        • Not at all — writing Ron Paul IN would be an exercise in futility (since the fixed electronic voting machines won’t even register it). Such a vote will ONLY be true to the principles of ALL REAL Americans…and will certainly detract votes from Perfidy Mitt (but won’t elect Ron Paul).

          However, tonight, Ron Paul will make an announcement on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show — which is being taped now.

          Should Ron Paul declare an Independent Run — then, there is the tiniest hope that America will wake up on time!

            • Billy Malone — will cement a Rmoney loss, at least!

              And right now, all indications are that the Mitt will be worse than the BO!

            • I would never support a hawk so my choice is always very, very narrow. If RP isn’t on the ticket there is always Johnson.

            In an interview with Bloomberg, Paul even went so far as to say the Republican Party was not his party — and is, in many ways, irrelevant.

            “I do not like politics at all,” said Paul.

            “Hopefully [Romney] is right and he’s going to create all these jobs, but quite frankly, only the market creates jobs. Governments can’t and presidents don’t do it,” Paul said.

            • But they sure can sour the environment for job creation. Most interventions by government harms consumers and would-be competitors. Regulations are a cartelizing device incompatible with the free market.

            Ron Paul Reportedly Considering 2012 Presidential Run on a Third Party Ticket

            UPDATE: September 2, 2012, 2pm PST

            “I spoke with Dr. Paul yesterday about continuing the fight by running on a third party ticket. I want to share what he said to me and let you know what needs to be done to make this happen. It can happen, but it’s going to take some work.

            Is it possible that this is all a hoax? Of course it is. However, in light of the people putting it out there, I doubt it.

          • From Daily Paul:

            So we all know Ron is making a special announcement on Jay Leno on September 4th. I know many of us are hoping it’s that Ron is running Indy or third party. Some are hoping he will endorse Johnson.

            I just got off the phone with someone very close to Ron and want to tell everyone that a third party run is possible. At this point that is not what the announcement is going to be. It’s also not a Johnson or Romney endorsement, so says my well placed source. Again, take it worth a grain of salt, but I trust that this person is close enough to Ron to know.

            Up until know I have believed that there was ZERO chance Ron would run third party. However, after my phone call I believe there is a glimmer of hope. It’s too late for Ron to get on the ballot as an Indy, however Johnson has said in the past that he would step aside for Ron.

            Now for the bad news..Ron does not think the grassroots would fully back him because of all of the Rand and Benton bashing that has taken place, but RON would LOVE to make a last major push for Liberty in the presidential debates.

            WE HAVE TO TELL RON BEFORE SEPTEMBER 4th THAT WE WILL SUPPORT HIM AND FUND HIM AND BACK HIM. If he knows that, there is still a chance he could change his mind, and if Gary really will step aside for Ron, Ron may take one final shot as a Libertarian. There is no chance Johnson will be anywhere near 15% and therefore no chance Gary is going to be in any debates. However, if Ron is the LP nominee and Gary as VEEP (as much as I dislike Gary, I could accept that) Gary would be debating Biden.

    • Couldn’t agree more, Bill went out a winner and he’s back in Obama’s corner. I do believe though, that Bill packed the power for the bubble to pop and Bush lit the fuse. However, I don’t knock success and Bill was a success for the country on paper.

      Mitts best chance now is no chance, Sarah. Anything else is second best at this point in time.

  9. Note*

    Keep in mind that the misinformed American majority (bombarded daily by MSM propaganda) are being misled that an election by choosing Mitt or the BO is WHAT our RIGHT to VOTE is all about.

    Both are financed by International (dare one say: Jewish?) Financiers, aka Banksters. So, a win by either is a WIN by THEM — and a loss to US.
    ———————————————————

    The way I see it being scripted — Bankster’s owned Media says:

    1) “Hey, Americans — you didn’t like the BO as President, so your voice counted and the Mitt won”.

    2) “Hey, Americans — the Mitt did his best, but your votes counted so the BO won again”.

    Conclusion: “See, your votes “matter” — long live our voting system”!
    ———————————————————-

    Does anyone of merit find fault with this obvious scenario?

    • On International Financiers (now named to match their proper occupation: financial Gangsters —Banksters — trying to control the World by Usury) this is the best BOOK to see their MO:

      NONE DARE CALL IT CONSPIRACY (1971 by Garry Allen) — read it!
      ——————————————————————————–

      Other eye-opening works were published by Henry Ford — under the heading “The International Jew”! Must read material from the 1920?s —shows Henry Ford’s astuteness!
      ——————————————————————————–

      Today, let’s see if this is false about our Government zeal?!?

  10. P.S. Don’t forget to sign this petition: Ron Paul to run against these two puppets!

    Ron Paul — Run as an Independent!

    Sign petition below:

    http://www.ronpaul2012.net/

    A REAL Human Being (Ron Paul) needs to be present at the “Debates” — we just can’t allow a Punch-and-Judy Show (the Rmoney puppet parleying with the BO puppet) — someone with REAL SUBSTANCE needs to expose these two clowns!

    Ron Paul is the only one capable of this!

    • I don’t think they are coming back, the GOP that is. The storm troopers never left. Hey they did their job and made it a complete and total failure except for the Clint Speech.

      • Billy:

        Yeah, as you say, if even NeoCon Broadcasting (fox) is calling Ryan a liar, they have no hope.

        Except, as I noted, Willard’s thugs have more money than God. . .
