Think of this entire post as an Action Item.
Women Stop Whining – This is an observation as well as a warning: Stop Whining – more and more women are NOT whining and instead organizing against the Democratic? Party, Big Media and Big Media tool Barack Obama.
The observation and warning applies to men who supported Hillary too. The observation applies to all who are revolted by the open displays of misogyny this campaign season. We address ourselves specifically to women because women are the on the ground workers, volunteers, of the Democratic? Party.
Many times over we hear via email and other contacts about how “upset” our correspondents are with what was done to Hillary and Hillary Clinton supporters. The answer is to go on strike this NOvember. To borrow a phrase from Nancy Reagan “Just Say NO”.
Democrats, especially Democratic big money donors, tend to fall in line very quickly once a nominee is known. Big money Democratic donors are a culturally “conservative” set of people. They do not like to “rock the boat”. It is heartening that influential, and very well connected donors such as Barbara Layton are still fighting for Hillary. Do not underestimate how important this is. The fight continues and there is much organizing behind the scenes right now. Big money Democratic donors are not alone in this fight. Millions of us are committed to Hillary as our nominee. Millions of us are otherwise committed to a NOvember strategy. It’s a people’s campaign. We will not go quietly.
As much as the Democratic? establishment trys to force feed Obama to the Democratic millions it will not work. Democratic women leaders going to the back of the bus won’t work. Whining won’t work either – if you think Obama is NOT qualified to be president, if you don’t like the race-baiting, gay-bashing, women-hating campaign Obama has run – Don’t vote for Obama. Go on strike. Don’t take your seat at the back of the bus. NOvember.
Well, it might take awhile.
For sure, the 2,000 party activists attending the Ohio Democratic Party’s annual dinner tonight at the state fairgrounds are behind their presidential candidate, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois.
But after a prolonged and sometimes bitter primary battle against Sen. Hillary Clinton of New York, some of the faithful are swallowing hard, opting for a slow embrace of Obama rather than a warm hug. [snip]
Some of the party members attending the Democratic dinner said Obama has work to do to reach out to Ohioans, especially in Appalachian Ohio and rural areas where Clinton and former President Bill Clinton have campaigned heavily. [snip]
Shirley Woodford, 60, an insurance saleswoman from Caldwell, supported Clinton in the primary and said she has “a few reservations” about Obama – especially whether he has enough experience to be president.
But Woodford said she plans to vote for Obama this fall because she thinks the country needs a change in direction and that voting for McCain wouldn’t be the answer.
“I can’t cut off my nose to spite my face,” Woodford said.
This is backwards thinking. If you think Obama is not qualified to be president – do not vote for him. If you want to fight against race-baiting, gay-bashing, and woman-hating – act like Rosa Parks did. Don’t go to the back of the bus.
Also, do NOT vote for those who enabled the race-baiting, gay-bashing, women-hating Obama campaign. Fight against John Kerry. Force Kerry to spend his Summer in Massachusetts fighting for his job – which is supposed to be representing the will of the people of Massachusetts.
This is John Forbes Kerry’s worst nightmare: He’s going to have to spend the summer campaigning . . . on the mainland.
Fall River, Chicopee, Haverhill, Lynn, Fitchburg – not a single one of those sweaty cities has any windsurfing worth a damn, not to mention a Ducati motorcycle dealer, damn, but Liveshot is going to spend the next three months pressing the flesh in those wretched burgs, searching in vain for a proper nouvelle cuisine brassiere while enduring the foul breath of the plebeians . . .
Stand by, Sen. Kerry, for an endless schedule of kielbasa festivals, parades, motorcycle rallies, town concerts, fireworks displays, questionnaires from special-interest groups and maybe even, gulp, a televised debate or two. Kerry’s already had to endure a Celtics playoff game. Instead of the Inn at Wauwinet, this summer Kerry will be dining at Coney Island Hot Dog in Worcester. Next thing you know, some beer-guzzling peasant in a No. 12 Patriots [team stats] jersey is going to be asking him about . . . baseball.
Fight against the John Kerry who thinks Obama should be elected “because he is African-American”. John Kerry must still think Governor Patrick was a good choice because of the color of his skin too.
Our exclusive 7News Suffolk University Poll proves it: Just 38% of Bay State voters hope he’s re-elected in November, while 51%–more than half–want someone new. Nine per cent don’t know yet what they want.
“These numbers signal vulnerability. In a perfect world, this would be a huge problem for John Kerry. The hook is, is there a candidate on the ballot who can beat him,” Professor David Paleologos, Suffolk University, said.
Hillary won Massachusetts with a large majority. Let’s remind Kerry and other Obama enablers remember that Hillary won the big Democratic states. Let’s play to our strengths. Make the Obama enablers sweat before and after the Denver convention. Make the superdelegates feel the heat from no volunteers, no campaign contributions – indeed opposition to their reelections.
Fight against Robert Wexler who brags about how much he helped and is helping Obama. Wexler is now whining about what a tough race he faces in very Democratic and very Pro-Hillary Broward County against a self-funded candidate. Wexler helped disenfranchise Florida Democratic voters. Now he wants Democratic voters to help him. “Just Say NO”. NOvember.
There is much to do.
We still fight for our nominee – Hillary Clinton.
Liz Lemon (a.k.a. Tina Fey) said what many are thinking: “There is an 80% chance in the next election that I will tell all my friends that I’m voting for Barack Obama but I will secretly vote for John McCain.”
