I can't say I remember any hoodlums interupting the democratic convention speakers, but it has happened several times at the republican convention. I thought this was the party that is open minded and inclusive. Since when did the democratic party and many of the leaders in the party come to think that everything is America's fault? Since when did the democratic party become the hedonistic anti-american party that embraces extreme left and shuns traditional values? The party that my grandfather and dad was so into has become a party that they no longer recognize. I have voted more against people and parties than for them, and now I have to vote against the democratic party that has become a hateful party, more so than the extreme right that hated Clinton. Rather than stand for something they have come to blame Bush and America for everything. They wish for the economy to tank or something bad to happen in order to hurt Bush no matter what it does to the country, and I think the quest for power has clouded their judgement.
