The week of September 3-6, the Queen City, Charlotte, NC,  held the Democratic National Convention to over 30,000 voters. Some came for the event, and some came to hear the Speakers. But what was on everyones agenda was to see the President himself give his nomination acceptance speech.

The full three day event was filled with enough anticipation leading up to Obama. There were even live performances from The Foo Fighters, Mary J. Blige, James Taylor and Marc Anthony.

What really go the people’s attention were the very familiar faces of some of the speakers, such as Eva Longoria, Scarlett Johansson, and the Former President Bill Clinton. Clinton’s speech definitely made a statement when he said, “And it was really interesting to me that when [Obama] was trying so hard to put Americans back to work — two full years before the election — the Senate Republican leader said that their number one goal was not to put America back to work, it was to put the president out of work,” attacking Gov. Romney’s policies.

When Vice President Joe Biden gave his speech, accepting his nomination for VP, Biden praised Obama by saying, “”Day after day, night after night, I sat beside him, as he made one gutsy decision after another — to stop the slide and reverse it. I watched him stand up to intense pressure and stare down choices of enormous consequence. Most of all, I saw what drove him: His profound concern for the American people.”

Around 10pm on September 6, President Barack Obama took the stage and gave his speech in acceptance to his presidential nomination for the DNC. According to the Huffington Post, when the President gave his speech “…both he and the crowd were animated by protectiveness for what’s been accomplished so far in his presidency and hope to build on those achievements.”
