Politics, Math, Gospel Confuse Dem Political Operative
Cybercast News Service -- CNSNews.com ^ | 6/2/2005 | Marc Morano

Posted on 06/02/2005 6:05:44 AM PDT by bigsoxfan

Washington (CNSNews.com) - The woman who managed the 2000 presidential campaign of Democrat Al Gore urged fellow liberals at the Take Back America conference to work hard "over the next 523 days and take back America and give [Vice President] Dick Cheney and the rest of those creeps their one way ticket back home."

But Donna Brazile, who was clearly speaking about the November 7, 2006 election, confused both her mathematical and political calculations. As of Wednesday, there were 524 days until the 2006 election; and regardless of the election results, Cheney's term as vice president isn't due to expire until Jan. 20, 2009. Later, Brazile botched a reference to a biblical verse.

In an interview with Cybercast News Service following a panel discussion, Brazile insisted that "the voters are with us and they have been with us on the issues in every election."

Despite the fact that Republicans won the last two presidential elections and picked up seats in both the U.S. House and Senate in the last mid-term election of 2002, Brazile insisted that "the problem is [voters] don't know exactly who we are and what we stand for."

She also rejected the idea that conservatives have a lock on Christian voters.

"You want to talk about compassion? I'll match any one of them [GOP Christian conservatives] word for word, verb for verb, and I'll match their life with my life and I can show you that I give back more," Brazile said.

"If they ever read Luke 10:48 (sic) 'To whom much is given, much is required,' they couldn't stand up and preach the so-called gospel that they talk about," Brazile added, incorrectly identifying the biblical verse. [Editor's note: The correct verse is Luke 12:48, which reads in part: "And to whomsoever much is given, of him shall much be required."]

Brazile also referenced abortion rights and her Catholic faith.

"People tell me, because I am Catholic -- they keep saying to me 'Donna, how can you be Catholic and pro-choice?' I say, 'Ask my grandmother and my great-grandmother who controlled their body (a reference to slavery) and I will tell you why I am pro-choice," Brazile said to applause.

Brazile appeared to ridicule the Catholic Church while noting that she did not expect her local bishop to contact her to give her political talking points. In an apparent reference to the pedophilia scandal in the Church, Brazile lampooned a hypothetical confessional exchange between herself and a priest. "Bless me father for I have sinned. What about you?" she said.

Toby Chaudhuri, communications director for the Campaign for America's Future, the sponsor of the Take Back America conference, echoed the message that conservatives do not have a monopoly on religious and moral issues.

"Certainly God is not a conservative. God is not just a progressive. God is much more than that. The values we are fighting for are truly moral values," Chaudhuri told Cybercast News Service.

'Arrogance, deceit and corruption'

Eli Pariser, executive director of the liberal advocacy group MoveOn.org, declared that 'the right's arrogance, deceit and corruption are catching up with them." He participated in the same panel discussion as Brazile.

Pariser said President Bush's popularity is falling because of his Social Security reform proposal as well as cultural and economic issues.

"The broad mandate that President Bush claimed was a mirage. There is almost no mandate at all," Pariser said.

He also attacked some in the Democratic Party, who he claimed were not being true to liberal values. "Democrats' allegiance to wealthy donors and CEOs has blocked the potential for a coherent, progressive vision and we have drifted away from our constituency, and it's time to change all of that," Pariser said.

If the liberals get their message out to voters, they will be rewarded with much more than a majority of voters, according to Pariser. "We need to be focused on not how we get to 51 percent, but how do we get to 80 percent? That's where we should be," he said.

No, Donna, your problem is that voters know EXACTLY who the Demo(n)cRAT part is and what you stand for.

This is the woman that moved Al Gore's campaign to Nashville to lock up the southern vote. HA HA HA, could not even get Tennessee's vote.

A lot of people talk about how smart Miss Braizle is. If she was so smart she would just shut up about conservatives and what they do for society. She either hasn't a clue or is choosing to blind herself to the facts.

-------
Yes, Donna, the people understand the Marxists that are running your party (mob), they know what Marxism and socialism are all about, they understand your agenda for America (socialism and absolute power), they understand your support for America's defense (NONE), they understand your desire to reduce big government (NONE), and they understand your hard work to reduce government speneding and TAXATION (NONE). They also understand your credibility, honesty, ethics, and morals (NONE), and they really appreciate your intention to run a unqualified, criminal Marxist as a Presidential candidate. They also understand your obstructionism in the Congress in a blatant attempt to negate the effectiveness of the Bush adminstration. As well, they understand the internationalist, appeasement mentality of the far-left Dems.

And last but not least, they understand your total lack of concern for America and its people, and your TOTAL FOCUS ON THE AQUISTION OF POWER AND CONTROL. The know your attitude of SELF, SELF, SELF, SELF...

No, your message got out all right, Kerry did an excellent job of getting it out.

They are all worthy of the ultra-extreme Louisville Slugger treatment.

Since her ancestors lives were the property of others, she thinks her baby is her property to do with what she wants.

I'm certain that the slave owners would be as adamant about their right to "chose" what to do with their "property", as she is about what to do with "her" property.

And she will never realize the irony of a person who cares about slavery (where one group of humans took upon themselves the right to define which humans could be considered people, and which were to be considered as property), arguing that a new group of humans, (women) can take upon themselves the right to define which humans should be considered people , and which are property (children not yet born).

Well she got one thing right:


"President Bush's popularity is falling because of his Social Security reform proposal"

yeah, because Bush wants to turn Social Security into a poverty program.


"as well as cultural and economic issues"

yeah, because he let Terri Schivo die, continues to let illegals stream across the border, his stupid prescription drug benefit, and the fact that he wont reign in out of control federal spending.

Here's the author's problem. He's trying to hold a rat to a standard of sensible speech. Never happened. These people ramble and babel.

I say, 'Ask my grandmother and my great-grandmother who controlled their body (a reference to slavery) and I will tell you why I am pro-choice," Brazile said to applause.

Donna Brazile is approximately 2.5 months older than me. My father was born in 1938 and my mother was born in 1940. All my grandparents were born during the years 1911 to 1918. All my great grandfathers were born in the years 1876 to 1887 with one exception in 1866. All my great grandmothers were born in the years 1885 to 1896.

The chances her grandmothers were slaves are zero. The chances her great grandmothers were slaves are very near zero.

She's confused about more than math, politics, and the Bible. She also doesn't know history and possibly her own lineage.

Good Lord, the hubris of these folks.

They presume to put God in their little "progressive" box, and then tell the rest of us that they are fighting for "truly moral values".

Like abortion on demand.

'To whom much is given, much is required,

This lofty phrase from the racist Ms. Brazile was quoted by J.F. Kennedy and others but J.F. Kerry would have said "Noblesse oblige" - however Brazile has plagiarized and gotten it wrong, as she does in most things. Brazile and Carol Moseley Braun, women of color who are embarrassments to their party and to their race.
