Here are some little newsbites that should make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Barack Obama now proclaims that he wants Michigan and Florida seated in full.
Now that The One is the presumptuous nominee, he is doing exactly what Democratic insiders thought would be done in January – pretending that it’s important to him that the Michigan and Florida Delegates have their voices heard at the Convention. Of course, if Hillary is not listed as a nominee on the ballot, their voices will not be heard, because they won’t be able to cast their votes for Hillary Clinton.
No one in the Obama/DNC Conglomerate thinks for one minute that this one-fingered salute will bring Party Unity (TM). Obviously, the New Democratic Party (AKA Obama for America) is proud to telegraph their complete and total disdain for people who voted for the Senator from New York.
It’s on purpose.
In other news, Obama is now okay with off-shore drilling, taking a position similar to “gasp” John McCain’s. Surprise, surprise, he sells out his previous, more liberal (and more sensible) position in order to gain political points. Gosh, it almost seems like he would do and say anything to win! I sure hope the “progressive” media, like The Nation, doesn’t find out!
Oops. Too late.
It’s on purpose.
Look, my fellow PUMAs, we need to wrap our minds around the fact that Barack Obama does not want our votes. He does not want Party Unity (TM). He wants either excision, or submission. Either you’re with him (willingly or forcibly), or against him.
We need to stop thinking about this election as if it were business as usual. That is what Hillary did, and look where it got her. This campaign, the toxic creation of Axelrove and the Chicago Machine, is a nuclear missile aimed at the Democratic Party. The entire purpose of this weapon is to remove the Clintons and their voters from the Party. It is to be destroyed in order to be “saved.” And if some collateral damage happens in the meantime, well, that’s what happens in a war, isn’t it? Better luck…never.
We need to understand that they do not care about us. We need to stop writing Howard Dean and the Obama delegates. They’re all on board with Obama for America, and have been for years. We need to go to Hillary herself, and her delegates. They are the only ones who can save the Party from destruction.
We don’t have much time to maximize our effectiveness, but if I were in charge of the PUMA conference in DC, I would say that we need to break Hillary out of her Party Loyalty frame of mind. We need to let her know that Barack Obama is not a Democrat, and will not govern as such. We need to explain to her that we need her leadership NOW. The economy is in a shambles and more adjustable rate mortgages are coming due soon. Major financial institutions are failing. Meanwhile, Obama and McCain play footsie with American lives and livelihoods, trying to outdo each other in their attempts to prove that they can best continue the policies of the Worst President Ever.
Some say that we can survive four years of McCain as President (Obama is unelectable, as has been quite obvious for some time now), then wait for Hillary to run in 2012. I disagree with this strategy. After the new Democrats have taken over the Party (which will happen, with Obama as nominee, whether or not Obama wins in November), who knows if they will even let her run for President again?
From now on, I say we contact Hillary every single day and tell her that she must be the nominee. This movement is not about Hillary per se, and yet, she has now become a symbol of the FDR wing of the Democratic Party. If we don’t get her elected now, our century’s FDR may never get a chance to put a New New Deal in place that will revitalize the country we love so much.
And it’s on purpose.
