Democratic National Convention, 2012

I am not a member of either political party according to my voters’ registration. I see some reasons for why some people would want Romney elected. I am an American, and I too, am feeling the effects of this economy. 

But I see one incredibly important and blatant distinction between the DNC that I’m currently viewing and the RNC of last week, and the two campaigns in general.

The NBC commentator that’s reporting from the DNC tonight said it best. He said something to the extent, when asked what the biggest difference between the overall feeling of the RNC last week and the convention tonight was, of “There is just a general feeling of enthusiasm here. Enthusiasm for the president. Not against the president, like at the Republican National Convention. There, it was not enthusiasm for Romney. It was against the president.”

That’s it! That is exactly it. That’s the whole thing.

 

Against. 

 

Regardless of your political persuasion, I think this is an important distinction. Come November, will you vote for a campaign of “against-ness,” or a campaign of enthusiasm and positivity for?

 

There was a moment during Mobama (Michelle Obama)’s speech that literally almost brought me to tears. 

 

We’ll see what happens come election day.
