Here are a few excerpts from the remarks of Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), who addressed the DNC in non-prime-time slot Wednesday:

- “Republicans always try to paint Democrats as week on defense. This time, they can’t. After all, Mitt Romney’s idea of an overseas accomplishment is sending U.S. jobs there.”

- “Mitt Romney should not become president for [many reasons], but perhaps the most important of all is the narrowness of his experience, perspective and vision.”

- “To those like Mitt Romney who want to take us backward, let’s send a strong message in November: As we say in Brooklyn, fuhgeddaboutit.”
