The collective voice of
millions of Democrats
across the country
has been reduced to
"whatever Obama says."
Barack Obama is the most cited term in the Democrat platform. Out of the 40 pages that make up the platform, Obama is cited by name on 38 of them. He is cited over 200 times throughout the document. The Democrat party's platform is really Obama's campaign manifesto.
.... In 2008, the Democrat party platform mentioned Barack Obama 8 times. This year's GOP platform mentions Mitt Romney...ONCE. And the mention is in the introduction, not the body of the platform.
The Democrat party has long flirted with personality cults. (See FDR, JFK for example.) But President Obama has ramped this up beyond all imagining.
