Today we woke up to a good commentary and a question that has us scratching our heads.
The article is written by the founder of “To Get Her For Us” Lady Lynn Forester De Rothschild. Readers of Big Pink know Lynn Forester from her courageous stand for Hillary Clinton when other Democrats chose to become Dimocrats.
Our question is: Why isn’t Lynn Forester speaking at the “No Limits” conference on November 6?
Instead of strong Hillary supporters “No Limits” is inviting people who should not share the stage with Hillary Clinton. Where’s Lynn? Why isn’t she invited to speak?
We know Lynn Forester did not support Obama in the election out of conviction but she is a prominent Democrat and someone who has recently attended events with Hillary, including an awards ceremony. Lynn Forester is a self-described Jersey “girl”, a long-time Hillary Clinton supporter and a strong woman who sees right through Obama’s flim-flam scams. Is that the answer?
Instead of Lynn Forester “No Limits” is inviting Congressman Barney Frank, Nancy Ann Min DeParle, Dee Dee Myers, and Maggie Fox, among others.
We understand that Barney Frank is the brother of Ann Lewis, President of “No Limits”. But Barney Frank has lately betrayed the Gay community to protect gay-basher Obama, is embroiled in dubious housing legislation and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s failures, and most recently is pushing through a noxious loophole-ridden mess of a financial reform bill as Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee. Why is Barney Frank invited and not Lynn Forrester?
We hope, but like Obama supporters whose hopes have been dashed do not expect our hopes to be realized, that invited Nancy Ann Min DeParle the head of the White House Health Care “Reform” Office does not use the “No Limits” opportunity to praise the Obamination which is the Obama health care scam.
Lissa Muscatine, will speak on “Women’s Rights Are Human Rights” as Senior Advisor to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Director of Speechwriting. Good for Lissa Muscatine. But what about someone to speak about misogyny and sexism in the United States and the Dimocratic Party?
We have no quarrel with Kakenya Ntaiya (of Kakenya’s Dream) discussing “building schools for girls in Kenya” but what about attacks on girls here in the United States? What about sexism and misogyny in the United States? Kenya-believe-it? No discussion scheduled thus far about the horrors of sexism and misogyny in the United States, instead we’ll hear about Obama’s Kenya! Maybe Kakenya Ntaiya will address sexual abuse in schools built for girls, in Africa, by Obama friend Oprah.
There will also be a panel with Dee Dee Myers, wife of Hillary and Bill Clinton hater and smear artist Todd Purdum, called the “View from the Press Room”. How about a panelist that will discuss Todd Purdum’s attacks on the Clintons?
Also on the Big Media panel will be Dana Perino, the former George W. Bush Press Secretary. Maybe Dana will discuss Todd Purdum and the Boys on the Putrid Bus.
Also on the agenda is Maggie Fox, CEO, The Alliance for Climate Protection as a moderator for a panel called “The Climate Change Imperative”. We hope that Ms Fox will not try to sell the Obamination which is the Obama “Cap and Trade” filth.
The only, and worthwhile, reason to attend the conference appears to be the wonderful Hillary Clinton. But Hillary should not be on stage to lend legitimacy to dubious schemes and scams. We have supported “No Limits” and feature the organization in our “Hillary Saves The World” section for a long time (on the right hand column of this page). But in the same way we believe Obama dupes should speak out against Obama wrongs, Hillary supporters must speak out when we see something wrong about our own allies.
Where’s Lynn on the agenda of “No Limits”?
Perhaps readers of HillaryIs44 who are attending the conference will ask “Where’s Lynn?”
Why are Chris Kelly, a former Facebook Executive, and Thomas Gensemer of Blue State Digital invited instead of Lynn Forester? We recall Facebook as an Obama outlet and Blue State Digital is a Howard Dean inspired outfit.
Facebook founder Chirs Hughes was an early Obama supporter and Blue State Digital spawned Phil De Vellis who created an early video which attacked Hillary as a 1984 fascist “Big Brother”. Why are these people invited and not Hillary supporters like Lynn Forrester?

Lynn Forester might not be on the agenda at the “No Limits” conference but today she writes about Obama with accuracy and truth.
IN “The Audacity of Hope,” Barack Obama described himself as “a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views.” This is a powerful tool in elections and explains why liberals, moderates, Democrats, Independents and Republicans joined together to give him 53 percent of the vote last November.
Since his election, this “blank screen” has been an asset, allowing the new president to maintain an illusion of progress, even as he has avoided the hard choices necessary for progress. But, as Americans ponder the unavoidable consequences of the president’s policies — particularly health-care reform — the illusion is wearing thin.
Few Democrats but Lynn Forester dare speak the truth and stand up for core Democratic values, not Dimocratic Obaminations:
The government has spent $3 trillion to prop up Wall Street and take over the big insurance and auto industries — yet the middle class and small businesses continue to suffer. Fifteen million workers remain without jobs; 32 percent of Americans’ homes are worth less than their mortgages — and a whopping 61 percent of Americans are living from paycheck to paycheck.
For these reasons, the American people have begun to judge President Obama on his record, not his rhetoric; on his policies, not his narrative — and on his ability to govern, not on his campaign machine.
The cool and reasonable candidate who gave hope to his voters, who promised to rise above the ugly politics and big money of Washington, is turning out to be as conventional a politician as any other. Indeed, as he runs a permanent campaign from the White House, he is proving to be more committed to protecting the vested interests of his party than standing up for actual change.
Lynn Forester is talking about the Obamination Party, not the once great Democratic Party when she rightly declares that Obama is “protecting the vested interests of his party”.
Lynn Forester describes a conversation with an immigrant from Haiti:
I asked him if he would not have preferred if our country had guaranteed him a job, a pension, health care and a college education for his children. He told me no — and gave three reasons.
First, he said, he takes pride in knowing what he has done for his family. Second, he knows that the government does not, cannot, know what he wants for himself and his family. Third, he knows that what government gives, it can take away.
Having lived the American dream, he realizes that the individualism at the heart of American democracy is what is actually at stake in the present debates over the president’s many policies.
The “can-do” FDR style Americanism Lynn Forester describes as in danger:
Immigrant or native-born, it’s written in the American DNA: A paternalistic government threatens our independence, our individuality and our right to self-determination. It’s why Jefferson sang praise to the yeoman farmer and Jackson to the common man. It’s the principle that Reagan placed at the heart of his presidency, and that Clinton built on by advancing policies that empowered individuals — not policies that made individuals beholden to the state.
Lynn Forester is undoubtedly talking about the welfare reform that Bill Clinton passed. Since Bill Clinton passed the welfare reform plan he has been attacked by PINOs but since Bill Clinton passed welfare reform we Democrats saw the Republican attacks on “welfare queens” disappear. Barack Obama threatens to provide Republicans with the “welfare queen” hatchet once again.
In contrast, President Obama’s praise for the free market and individual liberty just doesn’t ring true — because his record does not reflect his rhetoric. His actions show a fundamental disconnect with American values — a disconnect that won’t be dispelled with captivating speeches, no matter how masterfully delivered.
Lynn Forester should speak at the “No Limits” conference if DeParle speaks up for the Obama health care scam.
It is for this reason that so many Americans are uneasy about Obama’s health-care plan. The promised benefits don’t add up. It’s just not possible for the government to simultaneously a) provide care for 30 million more people, b) not increase the budget deficit and c) allow anyone who is satisfied with their health care package to experience no change.
In repeatedly insisting that he’ll deliver all three results at once, Obama has lost credibility: 80 percent of Americans polled said that his health-care reform will raise costs or diminish quality of care.
On the back of total federal debt that is already over 70 percent of our total GDP, and in light of $34 trillion of existing unfunded liabilities in Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, the president’s lack of actual, as opposed to rhetorical, fiscal discipline further erodes his authority.
Hillary fought for genuine universal health care and has the scars to prove it. Hillary, no matter what DeParle might now say, was right when she denounced the Obama health care scam during the primaries. Hillary is a fighter for core Democratic values and Obama is just a flim-flam scam man who fights only to advance himself:
In light of all the political capital that true and sensible health-care reform would cost him, it is most likely that President Obama will accept legislation that fails in all but name. In such a case, the president will claim victory — but not solve our health-care problems. It will be another empty triumph of his “blank screen” politics.
And voters will find that they elected not another FDR, but another Jimmy Carter.
We know where Lynn Forester stands. Lynn Forester has lived a life of no limits.
Where does “No Limits” stand?
