Interesting What Was Shouted At Democratic, Republican Conventions

Having listened to the speeches of both Presidential candidates, something strikes me:

Did you notice what the crowd shouted repeatedly throughout John McCain’s speech?


And what did they shout repeatedly during Barack Obama’s speech?

“0-BA-MA!  O-BA-MA!  O-BA-MA!  O-BA-MA!”

Or, as one liberal site put it:

Killfile notes: “You will never hear 75,000 people so quiet” as the crowd is silently observing the video about Obama.

And Obama is out! The crowd is going wild, I see a sea of Blue Obama/Change signs waving wildly in the front of him. His first words are thanking the crowd, and met with even more thunderous applause, and his attempts to quiet down the crowd aren’t working, no matter how many times he says “Thank you so much, thank you very much, thank you”. His attempts to start the speech are only met with a chanting of “O-bam-a, O-bam-a” Two minutes the crowd has been going, and Obama finally is able to speak.

It just strikes me as being interesting.  I guess you get to see what the different parties really care about most.

    I noticed that. I had an Obama-supporter at my house while McCain gave his speech and I pointed out this out to him. I told him to notice the drastic difference between the Republicans waving American flags and Democrats waving Obama signs. It says a lot, if you ask me.

    Even the other thing they shouted, “Yes we can!” has “issues.” Yes, WHO can do WHAT?

    Republicans screamed, “USA!” It’s all about America – the greatest nation in the history of the world.

    Democrats scream, “Yes we can!” (at least when they’re not screaming “O-ba-ma!”); Yes we can impose a radical liberal agenda upon the essentially half of the American people who don’t want it.
