Barack Obama wants to disenfranchise Florida voters. Obama calls the votes of millions in the Sunshine state a “beauty contest”. That’s an ugly remark. Florida Democrats were disenfranchised in 2000 and the entire nation and world suffered. Florida Democrats Will Demand To Be Heard. The lessons of 2000 will not be forgotten.

Having followed all the foolish directives from the Democratic National Committee, Hillary tonight will be the first in Florida after the DNC blockade is lifted.
Hillary Clinton plans to end a five-month Democratic campaign boycott of Florida tonight by hosting a public rally in Davie to thank her supporters and prepare for the general election.
The doors will open to the Signature Grand Ballroom at 7 p.m., just when voting ends for the state’s presidential primaries. The event is set to begin at 8 p.m. at 6900 State Road 84.
The rally will draw elected officials and party leaders as well as grass-roots activists.
“Sen. Clinton will come to Florida the first minute she can,” said U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Weston, a Clinton supporter. “She will come as soon as she has an opportunity to show Floridians how important we are and our issues are.”
Florida Sen. Bill Nelson plans to endorse Clinton’s campaign while introducing her at the event.
“For too many years, too many Americans have been invisible to their own government. In this primary, some even tried to silence our state,” Nelson said in prepared remarks released to The Associated Press. “Hillary Clinton will never let that happen.” [snip]
Democratic candidate Barack Obama has accused Clinton of violating that pledge by planning large fund-raisers. Clinton’s camp accused him of breaking the pledge by running television ads in Florida on cable news network MSNBC.
The rally tonight does not violate the pledge because it comes after the polls close, said Mo Elleithee, a Clinton campaign spokesman.
Exit polls will start to be released at 5:00 p.m. (ET)

Today’s earlier post noted Obama’s nasty snubs of Hillary and Florida, and 15 Million Americans on healthcare. We posted one of several photographs showing Obama’s latest nasty snub.
Readers of Big Pink knew long ago of Obama’s nasty anti-Hillary demeanor.
