After a poll released this week showed President Barack Obama only beating his Democratic primary opponent John Wolfe Jr. by seven points, 45 percent to 38 percent, in Arkansas's Fourth Congressional District, state Democrats moved to practically disenfranchise Arkansas voters. "[D]elegates Wolfe might claim won't be recognized at the national convention," national party officials are telling state Democrats. Wolfe is being accused of not following the party rules.
They want a coronation, Wolfe tells THE WEEKLY STANDARD. Theyre conflating [Obama] with the party. Are we supposed to call him Dear Leader? Is this some kind of North Korea thing?
Wolfe insists hes done the due diligence to qualify for delegates and that the state party is making decisions ad hoc to get the results they desire. This is ridiculous," he says. "These guys are trying to tamp down voter enthusiasm.
If he's denied delegates he's rightfully won, Wolfe says, Democrats would be effectively disenfranchising those who chose him over President Obama. And if that happens, hell take his own party to court.
They took my money and put my name on the ballot, he says. Theyre trying to make people think its hopeless to vote against Obama.
Wolfe is also on the ballot for Texass primary on May 29.
Love that line!!!
Love that line!!!
man bites dog?
wolfe bites Dems?
you pick em
Dims need to start writing in imprisoned convicts on their ballots like they did in West Virginia.
TEA Party candidates are the ONLY ones that I will support, send money to and vote for.
I don’t suppose either of those states allows crossover balloting. THAT would be an ABO vote it would be FUN to cast.
But then, Democrats probably don’t want to see Republicans choosing their candidates, unlike the way The Stupid Party operates.
Stupid is conservatives thinking they can participate in the gamed system and win.
Or, Obama eats dog. Wolfe better be careful.
In a word, yes.
