    They had to take two vote to see if they should leave it as is or change it . They used a sound vote of yes or no never took a hand vote. now they are trying to blame the gop for this.

    To bad the gop had nothing to do with this. This joke of a convention is better than comedy central. But what BO is doing to the usa is not funny at all. 4 dollar gas regards.

    Of course they were at the core............but generally speaking most were not. While there were groups within the Jewish people that embrace Christianity the majority did not.

    Today, in number, those that do are a minuscule % of the total number of christians worldwide, and they are also also a minuscule percentage of of those people with Jewish ethnicity.

    Here is an interesting thumbnail cronology on the matter

    3 votes were taken. Questionable whether it passed or not. Sounded all 3 times like the vote was no, but without taking a vote via computers, it will always be questionable. Sure was an odd way to handle it. It was declared that 2/3's voted yes and the vote was declared as passing.

    The question still remains as to why the word God was removed and why Jerusalem as the recognized capitol of Israel was removed by the DNC platform committee.

    As anyone who has been keeping up should know, I'm no Obama fan (to put it gently), but I just must not appreciate the intricacies here. The current platform's position on Israel seems pretty tough to me.

    I can't imagine that a party platform would be written, but not shown to the President for his approval. If FOX NEWS had not noticed God was left out and Jerusalem was left out and then reported it, the platform would have been approved as written. But FN did report it and there was a fire storm about it. The POTUS recognized that this was not a good distraction so he had the wording put back in.

    The question is... why was the wording omitted? Those who prepared the text of the platform had made a decision to omit the wording. Who were they and why?

    Three votes were taken. TV viewers heard the response. Why did the majority of the delegates vote NO to place the words back into the platform? You heard how it was handled. "2/3's majority yes". Say what?

    If I were a DNC delegate in the hall when the vote was taken, I would be wondering about that.

    They will never tell us why it was taken out, it wasnt just a mistake since it had to be voted on to be left out. If you heard the loud yells of No they dont want it in , that tells me alot. God does not have a place in Obamas world
