Update: More information on the Rhode Island situation:
“Caprio and the DGA asked Obama to move tonight’s Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser from the home of a Chafee supporter out of concern that it might be read as a blessing of Chafee. But the White House turned down the request and rebuffed subsequent efforts to get Caprio a joint appearance with the president. [snip]
“If the White House wants to know why Democrats won’t come out for them look no farther than the fact that even the president won’t come out for Democrats,” said a source who is involved in several gubernatorial races. “It’s bad enough that the White House failures have dug a hole so big for the Democratic Party that Chilean miners would be envious, now they’re choosing not to endorse Democrats. Are they living on this planet?”
Two sources familiar with Rhode Island politics told POLITICO that Chafee is benefiting from his 2008 endorsement of Obama’s presidential bid and Caprio’s suffering for having been in Hillary Clinton’s camp in the primary that year. Caprio hasn’t even been invited to join Obama at public events, sources said.”
Caprio also said this earlier today aside from the “shove it”:
“We had one of the worst floods in the history of the United States a a few months back and President Obama didn’t even do a fly over of Rhode Island.”
Our reason for our opposition to any and all Obama Dimocrats and even non-Obama Democrats has been that the Democratic Party, which committed suicide in August 2008, has to be resurrected and once again organize along the lines of the FDR/Hillary Clinton coalition – not Barack Obama’s “situation comedy” coalition of misogynists and race-baiters.
We reasoned that it was best to destroy the Obama Dimocratic Party as quickly as possible in order that an honest and truly democratic Democratic party could be reborn. We further reasoned that only a massive defeat, destruction, and doom in 2010 could get us to that goal. If the party did not suffer utter doom, such that it would convince even some of the most Hopium addled, then the road back to the FDR/Hillary Clinton coalition would take that much longer and would lead to a weakening party in election after election until the lesson would finally be learned.
So today we find ourselves in the comical position of possibly endorsing a Democrat. Are we daft? Has Big Pink gone soft? Are we hypocrites? Do we know what the Hell we are advocating? Have we lost our minds? We have a lot of ‘splaining to do.
We will do a more through “splaining in our next article (unless we decide to take some time tomorrow to celebrate a certain plucky blond lady’s birthday) when we discuss Rush Limbaugh and his latest proposal of an alliance. Today we are going to discuss “racist” Rhode Island and explain our potential endorsement.
This is what happened today:
“Rhode Island Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate: President Obama ‘Can Take His Endorsement and Shove It‘
This morning on WPRO Radio Providence, Democratic Rhode Island gubernatorial candidate Frank Caprio, whom President Obama has not endorsed, lashed out.
“I never asked President Obama for his endorsement and what’s going on here is really Washington insider politics at its worst,” Caprio said. “He can take his endorsement and really shove it as far as I am concerned.”
Deferring to his friendship with former Sen. Lincoln Chafee, the former Republican senator currently an independent gubernatorial candidate who endorsed the president in 2008, the president has not endorsed Caprio.
Recent polls indicate that Caprio and Chafee are in a tight race. According to the Providence Journal, Caprio was unaware that the president would not be endorsing him until a reporter told his campaign the news over the weekend.[snip]
Caprio today charged that the president is “coming into Rhode Island treating us like an ATM machine. I will wear it as a badge of honor and a badge of courage that he doesn’t want to endorse me as a Democrat.”
Caprio might be the first member of the DETOX Party we wrote about yesterday. Democrat Caprio is in a tight race with “Independent” Lincoln Chafee and the Republican is not likely to win.
Lincoln Chafee, a member of a great American family (the family lineage goes back to Roger Williams and Zechariah Chafee whose books we read many years ago) is an Obamoran. Chafee must be defeated.
“Obama had better hope Chafee beats Caprio. If not, Rhode Island won’t exactly be friendly territory in the 2012 campaign.”
That quote explains our friendly attitude, towards Caprio. It is also a lesson in how Hillary Supporters should vote next month. Remember any vote for any Democrat or Dimocrat is a vote for Barack Obama. Forget your favorites or how a candidate lines up on the “issues”. The bottom line is that the first vote a Senator or Representative makes is a vote for the party leadership. The more votes the Obama Dimocratic Party gets, the stronger Barack Obama’s position will be. The more local Dimocrats elected the stronger Obama’s position will be, especially as he decides on 2012.
If you want to topple the statue of Barack Obama in 2012 you must first topple the pedestal on which that statue rests – the Obama Dimocratic Party.
In January of this year we wrote about Tough Times Ahead For Hillary Clinton Supporters:
“The tough times will come because in order to do what is best for the country and to resurrect the now dead Democratic Party of FDR and Hillary Clinton we will have to assist in the destruction of the Obama Dimocratic Party.
Lifelong Democrats will find the purposeful destruction of a party disguised as the Democratic Party a difficult decision to make. We saw that in the Brown versus Coakley race in Massachusetts. [snip]
In November the Martha Coakley choice will be multiplied a hundredfold in elections for every house seat and in many gubernatorial and senate seats, not to mention myriad local elections. What are Hillary Clinton supporters to do? We still believe that in order to bring sanity to the process we must make sure that the Obama Dimocratic Party suffers devastating defeat in election after election after election.
Recently the FDL website was under attack when they saw the wisdom of a united front with Republicans to defeat the Obama health scam. FDL was denounced by Obama websites. Now some of the very “creative class” clueless see the wisdom of that strategy.”
In that article we discussed how difficult voting against every Democrat/Dimocrat would be and why we advocated for destruction, doom, and defeat:
“We believe the United States needs a fully functioning Democratic Party, a fully functioning Republican Party, as well as third party efforts which seek to move both major parties. Right now, we are devoid of a Democratic Party. What we have is a mockery posing as the once great Democratic Party.”
“The obvious riposte is “what principle?” How does a vote for a Dimocrat who mouths the words we like help? It’s not about “bitter, clingy” punishment as an end, it’s about punishment as a strategy. [snip]
The argument is we must support Dimocrats who stabbed us in the back. Where does that get us? Where has that argument gotten the Nutroots?
Issues? We supposedly have overwhelming majorities of “our” people in congress and one of “our” people in the White House. What has that gotten us? Must we repeat “Obama is the Third Bush Term”? What have “our” overwhelming majorities produced? What has “our” Dimocrat in the White House produced? [snip]
What has voting for “ours” produced? Bailouts for the nefarious schemers of Wall Street, attempted massive transfers of wealth for Big Insurance, death to real universal health care reform with secret deals with Big PhaRma, election year slush funds for Dimocratic elected officials, FISA, Guantanamo, higher war budgets, triumphant Big Media Obama enablers gliding into Obama jobs, debt and more debt, a not so secret war against “mediocre” Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton, Fox News as truly “fair and balanced” and Big Media an Obama protection mob, a never ending campaign of fakery, Bush “terrorist” policies joined to weakness, unemployment, threats to Social Security, not socialism not capitalism but opportunism, gut cuts to Medicare, Red state Massachusetts, fake deficit cuts, shrinking incomes, TelePromTer “leadership”, publicity stunts, shifting sand “deadlines” on Iran, unqualified “heckofajob Brownies”, tax cheats, a back door away from the cameras for anti-Democratic base lobbyists, vacations for the sleeveless, parties and gardens and playhouses for the Rezko financed, scams, scams and more scams, – that is what “ours” have produced.”
F*uck them – “They need some serious come-uppance or we’re all f***ed.” we quoted from Politico in another article:
“F*** them. We were with them pretty damn early on, and they still treated us like sh**, after they used us, and then came back and begged for more help when the going got tough in September. [Economist Joe] Stiglitz was with them from the beginning, and they treated him like sh**. So, with all due respect, f*** them. This isn’t about them not liking people who came late to the ball game. It’s about the smartest people in the world and the smartest candidate in the world thinking they don’t need anyone’s help, because they’re just so much damn better than everyone else, and thinking they did it all without anyone’s help. They need some serious come-uppance or we’re all f***ed.”“
In Rhode Island there is a tight race between Obamoran Lincoln Chafee and a Detox Democrat. Strategically, in this very individual case, the Democrat is the better choice.
We’ll count on Rhode Islander Mrs Smith to keep us informed on the latest news from Rhode Island. This morning we heard of Obama “garbled and almost intelligible… He forgot the point of the story half way through...” Rhode Island is in trouble and Obama is working “The Reverse-Midas Touch” in a state whose very name is considered “racist“.
Obama’s approval rating according to Gallup continues to plummet. The wave is coming bigger than ever and has yet to crest.
But the wave can abate if people forget:
Obama simply cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his enemies. Obama cannot be trusted.
The wave can abate if Obama Dimocrats vote for Obama Dimocrats and Hillary Supporters forget.
The wave can abate if Hillary Supporters abandon memory and make an emotional exception here and an unenthusiastic exception there. Don’t forget what we wrote at the end of 2008:
“For Hillary Supporters, election 2008 taught us about how ugly our Party, the Democratic Party, could be. The blinders came off, eyes opened wide – sometimes in disbelief – at the similarities between the ugliest Republicans and the “best” Democrats. Democrats we had supported through thick and thin, like Ted Kennedy and Nancy Pelosi, proved to be as adept at double dealing and vileness as the most rancid Republicans.
We also saw how some of our fellow Democrats could be led by the nose in the same way we used to laugh at “mindless” Republicans. There are a lot of lessons learned.”
In Rhode Island perhaps an exception to voting for a Democrat should be made. Perhaps not, – but then that elects an Obamoran. Vote against Obama and his Obamorans. Tell Obama to “shove it”.
