The truth about Denver and the Democratic Convention that Obama, Dean, Pelosi, and their cronies do not want you to know is this. The delegates can vote their conscience and they should because this may very well be one of the most important decisions they will ever have to make! With the country and the world in the state they are in who we pick to potentially be the Commander and Chief is obviously critical in regards to the future to say the least.

Niether candidate actually had the pledged delegate count required to clinch the nomination. That’s right! Obama did NOT have the pledged delegates needed! Despite what the senator and his supporters and surrogates have been saying the fact remains that it was only the endorsements of super delegates that gave him the magic number. The funny thing about endorsements is that they are not votes, just a political song and dance. The actual voting by both super delegates and pledged delegates does not take place until the convention. That’s right. The voting does not take place until the convention and the nominee is not picked until then either!

Another fact that Obama and Dean do not want us to hear, know or God forbid talk about is that delegates can vote as they feel they should, in accordance with their democratic principals and their own feelings about who can best lead the party and who has the best chance of actually winning in November! They definitely don’t want anybody to realize that even pledged delegates can change their votes at the convention if they believe that they should.

The DNC has been so buzy sleeping with Obama they have been blind to what is going on around them. They are blind to the fact that PUMAS are actually pissed off Dems not Republicans! They are both blind and delusional if they think Obama will continue to be their cash cow! I’ve been hearing and reading reports that say his fundraising machine is slowing and the DNC is in serious trouble and they are begging daily! They are complete fools if they really think this guy is anything like JFK, RFK or MLK. We are sick of them trying to push this crap when anyone with one eye and half a brain can see it’s just not true!

Something tells me not all the delegates are as blinded by greed as Dean Co. in fact I wouldn’t be surprised at all if some are already thinking that a huge mistake has been made in selecting this guy in the first place! In spite of what he says (You know how he told reporters that those who didn’t like him had just not met him yet ‘cuz to know him is to love him? Who does he think he is anyway??) I’d be willing to bet not all the delegates are in love with him. Some in fact are probably thinking they should just start over and nominate Hillary!

At least she has a chance at winning! At least we would feel safe with her in charge. NOT SO with Obama! MANY of us feel very worried about the future direction of democracy if Obama were by some fluke actually win the presidency.

So in short the truth about Denver is simply put: It’s not over utill it’s over!

OK PUMAS here is the new ad from The Denver Group  http://thedenvergroup.blogspot.com/

Isn’t it great? Love the Tea Party theme! It will appear today in the Chicago Tribune! Spread the word far and wide and donate if you can. They are working hard to get Hillary’s name on the ballot and get her the respect she deserves and she has earned. Also donate to retire Hillary’s debt so she doesn’t have to owe BO anything!

Before I get too carried away this morning  I want to give props to a fellow (or sister as the case may be) blogger Madamab who also loves satire and like me seems to be able to sit on ice cream and tell what flavor it is. (That means I’m a smart-ass and sorry Madamab I guess I just called you one too but I meant it in the most sincere and admiring way!)

There is a link to her latest below. Too funny! Here’s a favorite line or two of mine from this piece. Just to give you a little taste and whet your appetites!

BRAZILE [faux-fended]: For Pete’s sake, Hillary, what the hell am I doing here? I’m neutral! How could I be guilty? Don’t you know I work for CNN?

[Brief pause]

ALL except BRAZILE: HAHAHAHAHA! [BRAZILE glares at everyone, then slowly breaks into a grin and laughs along with them]

HILLARY [wiping her eyes]: Whew! Thanks for the laugh, Donna. That really broke the ice! [returning to seriousness] Okay, are we ready to get down to business?

I LOVE IT! And then there’s this:

OBAMA [offended]: Who, me? Are you kidding? I AM the Democratic Party! I moved the DNC to Chicago! I’m Obama for America! And besides, everyone loves me. Yes, I can!

HILLARY [unable to keep silent]: Oh, for god’s sake, Barack, you don’t believe your own propaganda, do you? Save it for your deluded worshipers in the blogosphere!

AXELROD [aside to Obama]: Yeah, Barack. I told you that most of those [makes air quotes with his hands] “anonymous supporters” work for me anyway.

 

http://oohnuance.blogspot.com/2008/07/who-killed-ole-yeller-play-in-one.html

 
Sigh! If only we would get to hear Hillary REALLY SAY THIS TO BARKY! Do yourself a favor and check out the rest of the play. Unlike me, Madamab seems to know how to spin a yarn AND keep it short and sweet. I think yours truly could learn a thing or two about that!

This one is quite a hoot as well. I’ll restrict myself to one quote just because I loved it so much I can’t NOT quote it!

BOLTEN [jumping in]: Yes, sir, it sure is! Anyway, what the Vice President is saying, is that the Democrats nominated the one guy who couldn’t win this year. The Democratic base doesn’t like him, and he’s managed to piss off a lot of people so much that they started their own movement.

BUSH: Oh yeah – that PUMA stuff. Can you believe that some morons think those PUMA idiots are Republicans? We wouldn’t stand for that shit in our house, would we Turd Blossom?

[KKKARL ROVE steps out from behind a curtain.]

ROVE: No, we sure wouldn’t. The idiots in our party wanted Huckabee. We put a stop to that crap right away.

I agree with Dick. The Democratic Party won’t win the White House in November. We’ve got our ads all ready to go – we’re just waiting in case the Democrats come to their senses and nominate Hillary.

HAHAHAHA!!! Here’s the link to the rest. Enjoy! 

http://oohnuance.blogspot.com/2008/07/what-about-bush-play-in-one-final-act.html

OOOPS!!! MUST STOP! COFFEE CUP EMPTY! MUST REFILL!

OK! Emergency avoided! Wheew!

Now that I’ve got that under control I’ll get back to the point. You will not hear this in the media. You won’t hear it said in public unless it is spoken in hushed wispers. You won’t hear it from the DNC that I absolutely assure you! Having said that I’m going to say what most of us, especially those of us who are PUMAS already know. THIS IS NOT OVER YET!

The Denver Group   http://thedenvergroup.blogspot.com/ and PUMAPAC http://blog.pumapac.org/ as well as many other groups are doing everything they can to get Hillary the respect she deserves in Denver by demanding that her name be on the ballot and the traditional Roll Call takes place. If you can do anything to help in any of these efforts please do so. I will also say that if they DON’T GIVE HILLARY THE RESPECT SHE DESERVES AND HAS EARNED there will be a hefty price to pay! We Hillarycrats won’t riot or burn the city or anything as unseemly and immature as that.

No, instead we will systematicly vote out every Democrat who did not support Hillary, Fair Reflection, the will of the people and the core principals of the Democratic Party! Every Democrat who tried to gloss over the inconvienent reality of the situation and instead tried to force this faux-unity crap down our throats all the while recieving what amounts to the political version of a blowjob (cabinet positions, fundraising ect.)  in exchange for their loyalty to the standard bearer of the “New Marxocratic, ooops, I mean Democratic Party”

In addition I feel fairly confident that Hillary will take the MI/FL decision to the credentials committee regardless because, hang on Obamabots if you’re listening, because IT’S THE RIGHT THING TO DO! Yup! That’s right! Hillary will stand up for those voters who did their civic duty (Some Obama supporters may not know about this as Civics is unforunately no longer taught in school.) and voted their concience for President for which their “reward” was being told that their vote didn’t count or at least didn’t count for as much as everybody else’s votes and oh, by the way since one candidate removed himself from the ballot the RBC decided that the votes that were cast should be altered to reflect votes that weren’t cast! This has to be the most undemocratic, uninspired, and frankly the most unintelligent decisions the party has ever made!

I think Hillary will fight for them as she has always fought for all of us. I think she will fight for their rights because in spite of all the heat she has taken for it, Hillary has always fought for what is right and fighting for Florida and Michigan to be treated fairly and with respect is what is right.

So for all those unity pushers who think they can threaten us or smooth us over or better yet try to ignore us think again sweeties, it aint over till it’s over! You cannot win votes with the above mentioned tactics. In fact you are doing the exact opposite. More of us than before say we won’t vote Obama and our numbers continue to grow fueled by his arrogance and that of his supporters. If you think you can win without us then you truly are delusional. There are 18 million of us who know your guy is a fraud, an empty suit, in short a loser.

Come to your senses people! Delegates! Abort this fary-tale with no chance of fruition that is the Obama Campaign! Back away from the cool-ade before it’s too late! You’re country needs you to do the right thing! Get Hillary Clinton nominated and elected! She can win! We need her! With Obama we are doomed!

PUMAS know this and they are working behind the scenes and PUMAS are not republicans I assure you. PUMAS are the core of the party, the people who vote and fight to protect us all! PUMAS are smart enough to know that advertising is usually created to attract and distract as in make you think this new thing is just what you need and don’t look at this it’s a work in progress you know, unfinished and all that. Hey looky over here instead!

PUMAS know real meat (substance) when they see it! Clinton has plenty of subtance and the fortitude to stand when others fall back. (FISA anyone?) She’s the real deal and if she’s not the nominee the party will regret it. Obama will lose and we will have 4 more years of GOP in the Whitehouse. NOT what I or any other democrat wants but at least the devil we know is better than the devil we don’t. I shudder to think about an Obama presidency. What that would do to our country, how many of our rights would he pander away for his own agenda? Would this country even be recognizable? I doubt it. We’d all be wearing brown shirts and jack boots in no time.

PUMAS UNITE! CAST OUT THE OBAMANITES!

https://caffinequeen.wordpress.com/2008/07/03/hansel-and-gretel-tale-of-the-lost-children-part-2/

https://caffinequeen.wordpress.com/2008/07/05/hansel-and-gretel-tale-of-the-lost-children-part-3/

 

When we last saw the children Geretel was being led away by Hansel as his followers were pushing the poison, mind control cool-ade on the other children and getting quite drunk on it themselves.

Most of the children were quite drunk and they all fell into a deep sleep. Morning was bound to bring some headaches and regrets!

Meanwhile Hansel told Gretel that they had taken care of the cool-ade situation and they had come back to the camp very late to find everybody already in bed. Hansel said he had instructed them to get a good night’s sleep for the meeting and the subsequent journey would take strength and determination. Gretel smiled and said how responsible that sounded but she had a feeling that something was not quite right. She didn’t know what to make of this new, helpful Hansel and she was not too sure she could believe it. In fact she was fairly certain that Hansel was up to something but she was tired and tomorrow was a big day so she decided to go to sleep.

As the morning sun rose the children slowly began to wake. As predicted many had headaches and some were embarrassed by the memories of the night before. Some children must have drank alot of the cool-ade as they appeared to be still drunk! They were running from hut to hut rudely waking the others with loud chants of “Hansel for Change! The New Path is The Right path! Hansel is THE ONE!”

Instinctively, Gretel knew that Hansel had lied to her, he had promised his followers would dump out that cool-ade! She should have known better than to trust him! As they finished their breakfast they began to gather for the meeting. Everyone was shouting at once and no sense could be made of any of it! The decision was made to pick several children from each side and have the debate among them as it would simply take too long to hear from everybody.

Hansel and Gretel began to choose their teams trying to pick as wisely as possible. After this was done the chosen teams began to discuss the situation.

On Hansels’s team were Howie, Donna, Nancy and Harry and a handful of his most trusted supporters.

Terry, Harold, Tina, Flo and Mich and the rest were loyal Gretel supporters through and through. As the meeting began it was apparent that Hansel’s team had no intentions whatsoever to play fair. Their first order of business was to suggest that Flo and Mich had somehow broken some rules and would not be allowed to participate.

Gretel and the others demanded to know what rules were broken and said that Flo and Mich were just as important as anyone else here and they should get an equal say in the debate.

Hansel’s defenders replied quickly if rather vaguely there was a rule somewhere and they knew it had been broken somehow by Flo and Mich and letting them have a say would be punishing those who didn’t break the rule! When questioned again as to what rule how and why and by whom it had been broken Hansel and the rest brushed off the coments  and stated that they simply would not accept any imput from Flo or Mich. Period.

The children began arguing back and forth and the shouting beacme louder and louder. Then it was decided that a vote was needed on the Flo and Mich situation before any further discussions took place.

There was a long  debate about whether or not Flo and Mich had really broken the rules and whether or not it was their fault. They were after all, under Repugnican control when all of that happened.

After much argument the children decided to break for lunch as all this discussion was making them hungry. After lunch they voted and Hansel’s team had obviously been distributing Cool-ade during lunch because after all was said and done the decision was that Flo and Mich could participate but would only get a half vote each and the kids who voted uncommitted were to be counted as if they were votes for Hansel’s New Path idea and would be counted as such and not only that they decided to take 4 kids from Gretels team and change those votes to Hansel’s new Plan too! After all, Hansel surmised if he wanted to lead this journey out of the forest he was going to need all the help he could get! Too bad Gretel was watching or they could pass out some more cool-ade!

After the long hard fight over Flo and Mich came the next battle, the decision to take Gretel’s proven path of policies or Hansel’s New Path of Change. It was a long, drawn out debate that seemed to go on forever. At every turn Hansel and his followers tried to bully the others into giving in and going the new way. They tried everything. They called them racists, they called them cry-baby girls, they said Gretel was stupid and un-trustworthy and that she would lead them into danger.

Gretel said that was ridiculous and that she merely wanted to take the children home and make sure everyone was taken care of! She reminded all that she was the one who had led Hansel into the forest and to the gingerbread house where the Repugs had been holding the children hostage. She reminded them that she had known how to get them out and how to find food, shelter, firewood all the things they needed to survive. Not only that but she had fought the Repugs before many times and had always managed to hurt them and get away. Hansel had never fought Repugs. He didn’t even know they were just out of site watching right now! If we follow Hansel and his New Path we don’t know where we will end up and we don’t know that we will be safe from the Repugs.

Howie and Donna and Nancy and Harry began shouted that Gretel was devisive and called for her to step down. Donna said she cheated according to Donna’s Momma’s rules. The rest of Hansel’s kids were calling Gretel and her supporters all kinds of nasty names and saying that they didn’t matter. Only Hansel and his New Path mattered to them.

Harold and Tina and some of the other Gretel Kids fought hard but in the end even though Gretel had more children on her side Hansel and his bullies won. They decided they would begin the trek in the morning down the new path! Gretel and her kids tried to talk some sense into them they tried interventions on some of the cool-ade addicts but in the end it was useless to try. Hansel was power crazed and would let nothing and no one stand in his way.

Howie, Donna and the rest began trying to get the other kids to change sides. It’s best for us all to stick together on this. Unity and all. If you still don’t want to well that’s ok. We don’t need you anyway they said. We have a New Leader and a New Path. We don’t need Gretel and her suckers anyway! Gretel and her kids would not budge though. They knew the only way to get home safe and sound was to follow the trail of policies that Getel had laid out for them. The trail would lead them straight home! They were NOT about to follow Hansel down some trail that lead to who knows where! not now and not in a million years! They were going to stick around and see what Gretel would do. They would follow her home. They trusted her. They knew she would not lead them astray. Gretel was and is a true leader they said.

Entry for June 06, 2008

Well folks, I’ve decided that if the DNC does not overturn the illegal decision made at the May 31, 2008 Rules & By-Laws committee I will leave the party.

Funny, in spite of what Obama supporters think this decision which will be made by many including but not limited to the 18 million Clinton supporters is NOT an act of dis-loyalty to the party. In fact, it is made completely FOR party loyalty!

You see once upon a time there was this party which stood for equality for all regardless of race, religion, sex, age, economic status, oh, I could go on but I think it’s evident what I mean here and they stood for American Values as laid out by our founding fathers. (Where were the mothers in this? Why weren’t they asked to participate? OK that’s another blog-post. I digress.)

Those principals can be summed up pretty well with just a few words:

WE THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE!

That means ALL the people who PARTICIPATE! It does not mean some of the people, or some votes mean more than others. It does not mean vote counts can be changed to reflect voters that DID NOT VOTE nor does it mean votes can be changed to the candidate a committee decides to favor.

There is a lot of talk about Obama as the nominee. FACT: he is the “presumptive” nominee! he does not have enough pledged delegates to secure the nomination. Super delegates put him over the top and they can change their votes back and forth as many times as they want to between now and the convention.

Clinton is suspending her campaign for now but keeping her delegates. She will be here to save the party from itself when Obama implodes as he surely will.

Meantime, I and many like me who were protesting and screaming COUNT THE VOTES! EVERY VOTE COUNTS! in 2004, and are now screaming COUNT THE VOTES IN 2008 will rest assured, be here in the future when someone uses this decision as precedent to change YOUR VOTE.

We will still be here screaming COUNT THE VOTES! So go ahead, rest on your laurels Oabma supporters. We will be here to defend your rights, as usual!

Americans 1st, Democrats 2nd!

One voice, one vote! Every vote counts!

THERE CAN BE NO UNITY WITHOUT FAIR REFLECTION!

PUMA – Party Unity My Ass!

A Sad Day For Democracy

I watched the entire DNC Rules & Bylaws Committee meeting yesterday on C-Span via the net. It was a really long meeting and the committee also took a really long lunch (2 3/4 hours) and took that little opportunity to meet behind closed doors completely flying in the face of “public hearings” as we were led to believe it would be!

During this long meeting there were many impassioned speakers. I was quite proud of the truly brilliant statements of some of my fellow democrats. And then there were some who felt more strongly about their agendas than the democratic process itself.

Now before you start accusing me of partisanship, hear me out. No matter which side of the current fight for the nomination you are on the one side we must ALL remain on is the side of the people. ALL of the people.

While I am somewhat disappointed in the outcome in Florida I can live with it. It’s fair enough. The GOP also penalized them 50% for the perceived “high crime of timing” and they did allocate the delegates according to the vote as cast with each vote counting as half. I can live with that. I suspect most people can live with that. Not ecstatic but I can deal.

The thing that completely flies in the face of all that democracy stands for is the farce of a decision in regards to Michigan. Seated delegates with 1/2 vote as in Florida but here’s the kicker!

They decided first of all to award all the “uncommitted” votes to Obama even though it’s clearly in violation of party rules. Uncommitted is a legitimate option for presidential preferences by the very rules these folks claim to be perverting, er, I mean following. (Freudian slip) There was quite an argument on this as how do you determine who those votes were cast for?

During the days before the Michigan primaries it’s a well known fact that both Barrak Obama and John Edwards, having removed their names from the ballot, had large grass roots campaigns urging people to vote “uncommitted” in support of them. Michigan law prohibits write in votes unless a candidate agrees to such in writing ahead of time. They could not do this as they had already removed their names and doing so would be in effect putting them back on the ballot albeit, unofficially. (BTW Doesn’t THIS constitute advertising? Wasn’t the rule NO advertising in MI? Just sayin’!)

This point was actually used in the meeting as a rationale for giving the votes to Obama. Flawed. Obviously, some of those votes would have been for Edwards and some could really have been for “uncommitted”. The point is we have no real way of knowing what the intent of those voters was. In the past in accordance with PARTY RULES we have sent all uncommitted delegates to the convention as such. They are free to vote as they see fit at the convention like super delegates. I’ll get to the other part of their flawed argument shortly as it is the same flawed reasoning they used for the next travesty.

The next completely “bone-headed” thing they did (Hmmm…. heard that phrase somewhere before) was to decide between three options on the issue of allocating the delegates.

1. Fully reflect the actual vote count (giving the uncommitted votes to Obama because he took his name off the ballot)73 Clinton 55 Obama

2. Split delegates 50/50

3. 69 Clinton 59 Obama

WHAT? What’s wrong with allocating them as they were cast?

Here is the argument(s) put forth by committee members supporting Obama.

We have to consider the will of the voters who didn’t vote as well as those who have? WHAT? Since when have we counted votes that were NOT cast? Even if you could how do you determine who those people would have voted for? What’s the magic formula for that one? (I thought the way it worked is if you don’t vote you can’t bitch because you chose NOT to make your voice heard. Am I wrong?)

The argument was that if the primary had not been flawed and people had known their votes would count many more would have voted. OK I can buy that but how do they decide that those votes would be for Obama? Again we are supposed to read the minds of voters who were not serious enough to get off their you-know-whats and vote.

Also they want us to consider the 30,000 write in votes that were not considered or even looked at according to the very people making this argument. They were not counted and no one knows exactly who they were for because of it yet, they say that “most of those 30,000 votes we’re certain were for Obama.” Um, if you didn’t examine them and didn’t count them how are you “certain” they were cast for Obama?

Not to mention the fact the as mentioned above the voters know that write in votes would not count by Michigan law. So they were now claiming to be all about rules and in the same breath going against them. Oh, they said, the voters didn’t know that at the time. Is it not in the voter’s pamphlet? Oh, I get it we can’t expect them to read the pamphlet. Just like we couldn’t expect people to come out and vote. They can just stay home and let the DNC decide who they voted for!

So in reward for doing their patriotic duty by getting to the polls and actually, gasp, voting, the DNC committee voted to take away 4 delegates earned by Clinton (YES, I said earned as in real voters voted for her and didn’t stay home!) and giving them to the Obama campaign because you know, he really deserves it. I mean if people who had supported him had actually come out to vote…and if he hadn’t pulled his name off the ballot and decided not to bother competing there…and, and..well you get the picture.

So this is what we have come to? As Harold Ickes said so eloquently “That’s what I call democracy!” If you did not see the meeting or any of the snippets on the news go to youtube and check out the video of Harold talking about democracy and fair reflection a true and loyal champion of the voters he is!

In 2004 every democrat I know was screaming “COUNT THE VOTES” from the rooftops yet here we are in 2008 and we actually have Party leaders, the DNC Rules & By-laws Committee no less, VOTING NOT TO COUNT VOTES! Actual democrats arguing to change the actual will of the voters!

You cannot give delegates earned by one candidate to another. You cannot use “judgment” to discern the will of “uncommitted” votes and you cannot discern the will of votes that were not ever cast!

I have been a democrat since before I could actually vote. If this is not righted and the DNC is going to start substituting their judgment for the will of the people I will change my party! I have given a lot to the dems but if the corrupt forces within cannot be contained I and many others like me will be affiliating ourselves with a party that can adhere to it’s own rules and to democracy! I don’t want a republican in office but if they continue to shove this sub-par candidate for the nominee that is exactly what will happen!

It’s far from over! I love my party and I will fight for it! The credentials committee has the ball in their court now! Denver here we come! Democrats must stand for democracy! If this party has been hi-jacked so severely by far left opportunists that they cannot solve this dilemma I and many others like me will vote independent or even gasp, republican. (Not sure I could go as far as becoming GOP but it will have the same effect in the end.)

I’m sick of people screaming about party unity and in the same breath they want to distort the will of the voters! What they really mean is shut up and go along with what we want! Let’s be one big happy family, the family that takes one for the team. It’s ONLY democracy! Shut up and unify! WE already TOLD you who you voted for! Besides, YOU’RE opinions don’t matter! WE have NEW VOTERS! UNITY! SHUT UP! UNITY!

This is really all about affirmative action isn’t it? I mean affirmative action has it’s place. It is meant to give opportunities to those who otherwise might not get them however when it comes to the commander in chief I want the job to go to the person most qualified. Not the one who we “gave an opportunity” to because we feel guilty about our past history or because poor Barrak didn’t get a fair chance because his name wasn’t on the ballot and to know him is to love him so he’s sure those who didn’t show up to vote were either supporters being “kept down by the man” or people who just didn’t get a chance to know him yet. If they had they would have voted for him.

If they are really so sure their guy is the winner then why try so hard to distort the vote? Why if Hillary is really dead, done, toast as the media keeps telling us why can’t he close the deal? If he’s so qualified why do they keep changing rules and stifling democracy? Can’t he win on his own merits? Do we really need a nominee who needs to be given preferential treatment in order to win? One who constantly tries to push his opponent from the race rather than just try beating her in good old fashioned competition? Do we think other countries will cut him the same slack if he were to get elected?

COME ON! Democrats should NEVER allow the actual votes and the will of the voters to be changed! It is what it is! That’s what voting is about! It’s called DEMOCRACY! Let’s all try it!

The Day Truth Died & The Election that Was – Examples of Main Stream Media Folly in Modern Politics

I have been so shocked and angered over the last two weeks (actually the entire primary season but in particular the last two weeks) at the farce that passes for news coverage these days! Apparently these so-called professionals are nothing more than OP/ED mouthpieces even as they call themselves “news professionals” they constantly spout off with their opinions as though they are facts. They are completely sold on themselves and their pompous rhetoric and completely insulted if anyone should dare to voice a different opinion or heaven forbid, point out facts!

It used to be there were standards in journalism. Once upon a time they reported the news as it happened and did not try to influence it. Once upon a time reporters had to have legitimate sources, information and research to back up their work. Now they report the news as they want it to be and force feed it to us on every channel until, like advertising, you simply can’t get their words out of your head. It’s like some nightmare where they play really old, bad yodeling country music as loud as it can get inside your head and it’s stuck on re-play!

This 2008 Democratic Primary will go down in History regardless of what happens for many, many reasons. I’m NOT just talking about the fact that for the first time we have both a serious African American and a serious Woman candidate, this race will go down in the books because it is the first time in history that we have had a candidate win victories with 35% and 41 % margins and the press screams “meaningless”, “racist”, “in-consequential”!

Since when is a 41% lead “in-consequential”?? When in history, EVER, have we had the press try to influence the political process in such a such shameful manner? Since when do TV Talking Heads decide presidential primaries?

If we are to believe the press (I wouldn’t advise it.) winning swing states and large states with lots of electoral votes, winning over the traditional “lunch bucket Democrats” is of no consequence whatsoever! The press and the far, left wing of the Democratic Party would have us believe that they don’t need those voters. They don’t need California, Texas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, West Virginia, Kentucky or any of those other states that Barrack Obama DID NOT WIN! Those voters along with the voters in Florida and Michigan simply DO NOT MATTER! Just ask almost any news pundit or better yet ask the Obama campaign and the Super Delegates supporting him!

You could ask the Chairman of the DNC, Howard Dean but you would only receive more of the same. The DNC, Dean and Reid, Pelosi, Brazille and the rest of the “Obamaphiles” should really be ashamed of themselves! They are not acting in the best interest of Democrats or the country! They want to seize control of the DNC for themselves, the elitist, left wingers.

They really don’t care about the majority of the American people or the good of the party or they would NOT be trying to take over!

The fact is it is Obama who is the party insurgent, he is the one running against the incumbent candidate (Hillary Clinton) and it is Obama, his supporters and his stooges (YUP! I mean you Donna Brazille!) that are in fact divisive. They have attacked, schemed and bullied Hillary every step of the way and even attacked former President Bill Clinton claiming his Administration to be “no different” than the Bush Administration, yet they continue to insist that poor Barrack is the victim here. “Those meany Clinton’s are racists and she’s running solely on her husband’s reputation.”

Which incidentally, if you listen to Obama is meaningless too because he claims the Clinton Administration was not much different than the Bush Administration! OUTRAGEOUS! I can’t believe they let this man speak! He constantly says the stupidest things! It’s an inconceivable feat that he has come this far with so many idiotic statements coming out of his mouth! (How about the Great Lakes of Oregon? or the 57 states he’s visited so far? With 1 more to go and Alaska and Hawaii taken off the itinerary by his staff. That would make his count 60 states??? WTF??)

Then you have him and his people calling Hillary negative and divisive! They call her Hitlery, Billary, Bitch, F-ing Whore and other extremely negative things. The media has been overwhelmingly nasty and sexist and they have been getting away with it! 

Then there’s his stream of scary buddies ie: Rezco, Ayers, Wright, Farrakan, Odinga and the list goes on and on. His lame and very thin record and oh, lest we forget his “Rock”, the “Woman behind the Man”, Michelle Obama!

Yes, Michelle-I’m-proud-of-my-country-for-the-first-time-Obama! The lady who attacked Hillary for “Not being able to run her house so how can she run the White House” last fall. (nice, feminist sentiment from a fellow woman huh?)

Barrak has threatened Republicans and told them to “Lay Off” his wife because he finds it unacceptable. Here’s what I have to say about that.

Get over yourself! If your wife is campaigning for you and attacks others for you then you can’t bitch when she gets attacked! Especially when the words being used came out of her own mouth! ON VIDEO NO LESS! So it’s NOT SLANDER! Nor is it unfair. If you don’t want your words used against you then keep your mouth shut! Otherwise take responsibility for what you say!

Even more important is this little tidbit. That is a drop in the bucket compared to what the GOP will be throwing at him in the General Election should he succeed in his attempt to thwart the only candidate with a real shot at winning!

If he manages to dupe the DNC into giving him the nomination he WILL LOSE IN NOVEMBER! Not only is he fatally flawed (the GOP knows this) but his poor treatment of half the party is so deplorable that should this happen there will be a major defection from the Democratic party on the day after the convention! We will vote across party lines if this guy is nominated because it’s more important to have a President we can trust!

Hillary Clinton or the alternative. McCain or Nadar?

Entry for May 18, 2008

The DNC is going to pay a very high price for their BS biased, shove it down our throats attitude toward the primaries! We are sick of them telling us who we are niminating! It is still a democracy here right? I mean we have th right to vote for who we choose right? Or have we become a dictatorship and no one wants to tell us?

They have completely ignored the voices of millions of voters in Florida and Michigan, they have tried with all thier might to make it look as though Hillary is a Ron paul or a Mike Huckabee with no real measure of votes or delegates. They have continually ignored the fact that this is one of the closest races in history and the fact that NIETHER CANDIDATE can reach the magic number without the votes of the Super Delegates!

Complete bias by DNC leaders Dean, Ried, Pelosi, Brazille you know what I say Screw ’em! What do they know? They and the media have gone to great lenths to cover up this man’s flaws, they have villified Senator Clinton at every turn, they have delighted in saying her campaign is over, dead in the water, has no hope scince Iowa.

What the hell do they know? They said McCain was dead too remeber? They are and have been in complete denial for months. They really believe if they keep telling us he’s the winner and keep screaming “The Witch is Dead” that we’ll swallow it! Really? Wouldn’t count on it Buckos!

They really think they can treat our candidate and us like this and get away with it? They really tink if they manage to railroad Obama into the nomination that we’ll “come home” and vote democrat because we should be loyal to them even if they treat us like garbage! What an outrage! Thjey don’t believe that we will cross party lines and vote against that loser in November? Watch me! Never voted GOP or anything but DEM scince I started voting but if they put this untested, inexperienced and unabashedly naive candidate up in November I will definitely NOT vote for him!

 

It’s not because he’s black, not because I think he’s some closet muslim, not because Hillary is a woman it’s because quite simply this man is an idiot and he is fatally flawed and CANNOT WIN AGAINST THE REPUBLICANS IN NOVEMBER!

To show how serious we are some of us have joined a group on the DNC website called DIRVAO – Democrats Independants and Republicans Voting Against Obama. Covert ops as my friend and fellow clinton supporter put it. We will use their own website to organize against their “Golden Boy” and maybe they will see we are serious. If they manage to push Hillary out of the race and continue to ignore the fact that she has more popular votes they will lose at least half of their party and voting base and yes their cash cow maybe for good. Or at least until we run these shysters out! This is just beginning!

Here is a link to the group for any interested in learning more or joining the group.
