@Radioblogger @dcexaminer @Kyle_Feldscher #DancingInTheDarkTrump 'can understand' if cities and states ban fracking via @DCExaminerBest moment of #DNCinPHL: Khan. (Luttrell was best moment of #RNCinCLE, so clearly a trend ...)#LOLNothingMatters => @ArkansasNobody The middle of her speech was like that. Beginning and end were not. ...Laundry list of liberal priorities.#oops> counting Early & Absentee voting. is on "This Week" on Sunday. Also on the show is Gen. John Allen, who thundered over the protesters in the convention hall last night.
Retweeted by David M. Drucker @Schwabcycler It's a gamble & it might backfire. I just think it's interesting that they're doing it.Dems flip from "Trump is the true id of a GOP" to "Trump is not a real Republican". Why it matters:
Retweeted by David M. DruckerUnder-appreciated story from #DNCinPHL? Clinton feeling empowered to rap Trump on hacking & classified info: Pod, @jimantle & @LisaMarieBoothe dissect latest on prez campaign + ME on Philly cheesesteaks: #ExaminingPolitics @ArkansasNobody Welcome to the world of being a political analyst. I embrace the hate. It's fun.#Wolverine now publicly confirming it has been hacked and has been advised incident similar to DNC hack. Investigation ongoing.
Retweeted by David M. Drucker @ArkansasNobody This doesn't surprise me. @ArkansasNobody All good questions.Trump attacking 4 Star = predictable. Interesting? "Following advice of generals" = more ground GOP ceding to Dems> week on #ExaminingPolitics, @BoldProgressive's @kaitesque talks @HillaryClinton's positinioning w/ Bernie Base: @ArkansasNobody Do tell.=> @HillaryClinton hits road in PA, good excuse to check #ExaminingPolitics pod w/ @SalenaZitoTrib on @PodcastOne: turmoil becomes a power play for Vladimir Putin
Retweeted by David M. Drucker @ArkansasNobody I get that - will be some of that."Hillary Does It Again"
Retweeted by David M. Drucker @ArkansasNobody If they're hardcore, no way. If they're more traditional liberals who liked Bernie's giveaways - maybe. @ArkansasNobody I thought outfit was OK. Better this some of her others.#ShameShameShameShame attacks give Clinton an opening to hit back on national security via @DCExaminerThe Democratic convention: Mission partly accomplished via @DCExaminer @McWordNerd @HillaryClinton Yes. More than a tad, in fact. @ThePlumLineGS I think some Rs want a reason to make it OK to vote for her and forget A) This is who she is and B) It's still a Base elex @Spotleson Well I have used it to describe men's voices. Not that I'm going to convert you. @beepea06 @EWErickson @HillaryClinton Yes, I heard and I was rather critical. His deliver my was awful, although many Rs liked it. @WW4Hillary @HillaryClinton I have used it to describe men. But you're hardly the first person to call me out on this tonight.=> What's that in your ears? Me: Plugs. Friend: Why? Me: Cuomo's speech. He just kept moaning. Friend: They work? Me: Not well enough.

@MelindaBourg Anytime. Always appreciate critical feedback. Thank you. @MikelNuno @JMilesColeman @HillaryClinton I disagree. But taking it under advisement. @mattyports @AlexMLeo Actually this tweet was about a woman "not being shrill."preaching to the choir... @AlexMLeo A lot of tweets over the years. But you're not only one criticizing me for that word. So it's a trend. @MelindaBourg @HillaryClinton I'll take it under advisement. Wasn't my intention.Interesting to watch conservatives in my feed get disappointed when they realized @HillaryClinton is still liberal.Clinton's line about baiting Trump with a tweet was, fittingly, the most-tweeted about of the night, per @Twitter.
Retweeted by David M. DruckerFirst presidential debate: September 26, at Hofstra on Long Island
Retweeted by David M. Drucker @AlexMLeo I've used the same word to describe male candidates. @MelindaBourg @HillaryClinton It was a comment on style points. I've said the same about male candidates.And w/ that, Convention Death March 2016 is OVER.Post Script: @HillaryClinton prolly best she was capable of. Might not have been enuf against anyone else but Trump, & jury still out there.5th, VOTERS - That's what counts the most. My bet is that Democrats are very happy w/ what they say. Indies & soft Rs? TBD.4th, content: On foreign policy, @HillaryClinton as hawkish as it gets in 2016 & she lent credence to military theme of final night of convo3rd, Content: @HillaryClinton is a LIBERAL. So naturally, her domestic agenda is LIBERAL. No surprise, especially since likely a BASE elex.2nd, Content. @HillaryClinton smartly wrapped the purpose of her campaign in the nonpartisan tradition of the Founders/Revolution. Big win.First, @HillaryClinton's delivery: Not bad. A little shrill at times but not all the time - & she looked like she was enjoying herself. KeyOK, time for instant elitist pundit analysis ...THIS =>"America is great because America is good." @HillaryClinton (Republicans have left this argument on the floor for the taking)The speech is a little laundry-listy, but then that's a Clinton trait. #DNCinPHL"I'm not here to repeal the 2nd Amendment; I'm not here to take away your guns..." @HillaryClintonThe thing about this is that the generals really like Hillary. (Her hawkishness is real, and it's one reason left is suspicious of her.)
Retweeted by David M. Drucker"A man you can bait w/ a Tweet is not a man you can trust with nuclear weapons." @HillaryClinton"We must keep supporting Israel's security." @HillaryClintonThis is the most dishonest part of Clinton's speech. Claims to be a wonk, doesn't acknowledge agenda requires vast middle class tax hikes.
Retweeted by David M. DruckerShe needs Base. Strategically it's the more reliable play. But going the other direction would have been interesting "Donald Trump says he wants to make America great again – well, he could start by actually making things in America again."
Retweeted by David M. Drucker.@HillaryClinton has stopped yelling again, which stylistically is better.A lot of liberal/populist elements in Hillary's speech, but then, that's much of what Trump is offering as well. #DNCinPHLAt the end of the day, this is going to be a base election. So it's not surprising that @HillaryClinton's delivering laundry list of liberal...But the rhetoric of @HillaryClinton's speech is pretty good. It's left of center, naturally, but also has unifying elements. #DNCinPHL.@HillaryClinton is doing her yelling thing she tends to do with big speeches. She was better in the beginning. #DNCinPHL"I accept your nomination for president of the United States." @HillaryClintonA very even, modulated delivery from Clinton so far, who often falls back on hollering into microphone to try to convey emotion.
Retweeted by David M. DruckerJust as Trump's "I'm w/ you" was a great rejoinder to "I'm w/ her," Clinton's rejoinder to "I alone can fix it" seems really effective."Don't believe anyone who says, 'I alone, can fix it.'" @HillaryClinton"Don't let anyone tell you our country is weak; we're not." @HillaryClinton"We will not ban a religion." @HillaryClinton"We are clear-eyed about what our country is up against, but we are not afraid." @HillaryClinton"Our of many, we are one." Said at the Democratic Convention by the party's presidential nominee..@HillaryClinton opening with a riff on the Founders and the Revolution is a smart play. #DNCinPHL.@HillaryClinton: "I want you to know. I've heard you. Your cause is our cause," she says to the @BernieSanders movement.
Retweeted by David M. Drucker.@HillaryClinton is appropriately & smartly name-checking all of the help she received at #DNCinPHL this week..@HillaryClinton looks like she's enjoying the moment. Which is an important part of the performance. #DNCinPHLWell, like Hillary or not, this video beats the Empty Chair that warmed the stage for Romney.So true ... I once got a similar speech from my old man. That was the early 80s. @kellydraper ...Voters decide the rest.One thing I've learned from covering politicians. Most of them are weird & a little bit complicated. Most think they're doing good.This would help his campaign. introductory convention video being narrated by Voice Of God, aka Morgan Freeman.
Retweeted by David M. DruckerChelsea Clinton isn't an amazing speaker. But, like her dad, she is revealing a side of her mom that almost no one knows.
Retweeted by David M. DruckerSo proud.
Retweeted by David M. DruckerMy theory on kids intro'ing a parent on a stage like this is that speech doesn't have to be good. People find the moment touching regardlessChelsea seems a bit nervous.
