Democrats had great one-liners at convention
The Kansas City Star
Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer had a great line in his speech at the Democratic National Convention about Mitt Romney.
He said he and Romney were governors at the same time, elected from the business world. Schweitzer said:
As that when Romney was governor of Massachusetts — an eastern, radically different state from the wild west, gun-loving, big sky and open range of Montana — Romney “raised taxes and fees by $750 million per year. I’ll let you in on a little secret: when a politician doesn’t want to be honest about a tax hike, he calls it a fee.
“Mitt raised taxes — uh, fees — on driver’s licenses, on school bus rides, on mental health services and even on milk. And here’s the one that got a burr under my saddle: he quadrupled the fee for a gun license! Maybe that’s OK for a guy who hunts ‘varmints.’ But for the rest of us, that dog don’t hunt.”
Sen. John Kerry blasted Romney for having no foreign affairs ability. He also insisted that Romney and others who doubt President Barack Obama to “ask Osama bin Laden if he’s better off now than he was four years ago!”
Vice President Joe Biden praised Obama and told audiences in his nomination acceptance speech: “My fellow Americans, America is coming back and we’re not going back! And we have no intention of downsizing the American Dream.”
