Question of the Week: What Do You Expect from the Democratic National Convention this Week?

The Democratic National Convention takes place Sept. 4-6. Will it affect your vote?

The reviews from the Republican National Convention in Tampa last week were expectedly mixed. Some praised its "focus on the philosophy of government and the role of success in our society," , while still others criticized the speeches of certain politicos and their spouses.

Tuesday through Thursday of this week, Sept. 4-6, all eyes turn to Charlotte, N.C. where the Democratic National Convention is expected to make a case for why President Barack Obama should be elected to a second term in the White House.

This brings us to our questions of the week:

What do you expect from the DNC this week, and will it impact your vote, either way?

. . . then why did we re-elect George W. Bush in 2004? Because he kept us safe on 9/11? Because he squandered the surplus Clinton handed to him with tax cuts, created the deficit we have now with two wars he couldn't pay for and got us into the financial mess Obama is currently getting us out of? Clinton said it best: the Republicans want to fire Obama for not cleaning up the mess they made fast enough.

I am one of those undecided voters. I watched Ryan, Ann Romney, and Romney at the Republican Convention. Even saw Clint Eastwood. They all sound genuine in their beliefs. I found some things lacking in that none of them said what they are actually going to do to turn our economy around. I am watching the Democratic Convention and have heard The Twins from Texas, Michelle Obama, and Bill Clinton. They all sound genuine in their beliefs. Clinton says that our U.S.A. hit its bottom and now is gradually crawling out of the bottom. I can see some things are getting better. I sincerely hope that each side (Republicans And Democrats) will work for what is best for Our Country and not what is best for their party. I hope media people will spell out what various things mean. I do not want our people in U.S.A. to rush to judgement on anything. I hear good things and bad things about Obamacare. I hope the media will explore exactly what Obamacare does for the American People and where does the money come from to pay for it. Show it all- do not rush to print. What would happen if we do indeed scrap it? What is different about Romneycare in Massachussetts and Obamacare for the U.S.A. Does Obamacare stop at age 70?

What we ended up with is what I expected. Lots of untruths and confusion. They can't even take a vote correctly. Clinton spoke to take your minds off of Obamas horrible failures over the past 4 years. If you lost your home, don't have a job, can't pay your taxes, your healthcare is expensive, your company laid you off and the national debt is 16 trillion and your children will be paying China forever, it's all due to OBAMA and his personal agenda.

So let me guess, If Romney wins, all you elephant supporters believe he will get the job done in his first four years? NOT...he will be politican for another four to so call undo what the previous president has done...It's all a vicious cycle! Vote Obama!

It must be a Republican "lie" since it was originally conceived by the Heritage Foundation, how soon we forget...http://politics.blogs.foxnews.com/2012/03/28/white-house-defends-health-care-it-was-republican-idea-first
