Hillary Demands DNC Seat Michigan/Florida Delegates At Convention! (Here it COMES!)
Hillary For President ^ | 1-25-08 | TCRLAF

Posted on 01/25/2008 11:14:11 AM PST by tcrlaf

"I hear all the time from people in Florida and Michigan that they want their voices heard in selecting the Democratic nominee.

"I believe our nominee will need the enthusiastic support of Democrats in these states to win the general election, and so I will ask my Democratic convention delegates to support seating the delegations from Florida and Michigan. I know not all of my delegates will do so and I fully respect that decision. But I hope to be President of all 50 states and U.S. territories, and that we have all 50 states represented and counted at the Democratic convention.

"I hope my fellow potential nominees will join me in this.

"I will of course be following the no-campaigning pledge that I signed, and expect others will as well."

Bend over, Senator Obama, and prepare to recieve from THE SHADOW PARTY D.C. Democrat Establishment.

Is anyone really surprised at this statement? Didn't we all see it coming? It was as predictable as the rain...

The Leftist blogosphere has literally EXPLODED today between this and the REZKO photo...

The Clintons would rather see the DNC and the Democratic Party fragment into shards than lose control of this election, lose a chance at another eight years in the White House for themselves, lose their neck hold on the Democratic Party.

This is slash and burn politics.

Watch this move embolden Michigan and Florida, as states, to now challenge the Democratic convention and candidate, should that candidate not be Hillary Clinton.

Are we really surprised?

I knew this would happen, but I thought she would have waited until she was within reach of the prize.

Could you explain this further? I’m not as familiar with the process and would like to understand what is happening here. More analysis please.

Both Michigan and Florida were penalized delegates by the DNC for moving forward in the calendar against party rules. Clinton won Michigan unopposed, and is expected to win Florida as well. By now asking that all these delegates be seated, Clinton is trying to grab extra votes at the convention that shouldn’t be competed for.

Hillary is calling on the DNC to seat ALL of the Delegates from Michigan and Florida, that the DNC penalized for having “early” primaries...

And, OF COURSE, she just happens to be the ONLY SERIOUS CANDIDATE on the Ballots, and Gets THEM ALL!
(Except for “Uncommitted”)

Something tells me the Clinton Campaign is seeing REAL TROUBLE on the Horizon for FEB. 5, and are trying to lock this up, NOW....

I think that the disqualification of Michigan in the Democrat primary was a blessing in disguise for Democrats.

We all saw the media huff about Romney "pandering" and McCain saying that "face it, some jobs aren't coming back."

However, the Democrat candidates did NOT have to face speaking about the same economic issues in Michigan, nor about Granholm's stewardship of the state, because the DNC stripped Michigan of all their delegates and the candidates did not appear there.

How fortuitous was it that the Republicans go on record addressing the depressed economics of Michigan during crucial primaries, but the Democrats get a pass?

Now, Hillary! wants the reward of Michigan's delegates without ever confronting them with her opinions on the specific issues related to Michigan?

I always thought the DNC was pretty quick on the trigger to disenfranchise their own on a technicality. It hasn’t bothered the MSM any (rhetorical observation).

How can she do that, when she ran unopposed because the other ‘rat candidates had the understandable idea that there were no delegates to be won in those states?

“It’s so nice to see the curtain pulled completely back for all to see”

In all it’s naked glory...
(insert epiteth here)

This KOS poster (YES, those DEMOCRAT PARTY FOOTSOLDIERS) says it best:

They can take their cronies with them.
)
ALL of them.

All the surrogates and talking heads and campaign strategists with their distortion and misrepresentation, and dead horse-beating: Obama did drugs, Obama “worked for” Rezko, Obama said the word “Reagan,” Obama voted present on .025% of his votes in the Illinois State Senate, I invented change, blah-di-blah-di-blah.

Honestly, I keep telling myself these aren’t the Clintons I campaigned for and defended through the 90s, but I have this creepy feeling that things are just coming to the surface now that have been there forever.”

Reality can hurt when it smacks you squarely up the side of the head...

Why should it matter since he won Michigan already and will likely win Florida polling?

If Michigan and Florida had not been penalized, she would’ve had those delegates. Without them, she’s still in the lead anyway.

Typical dysfunctional crap. Same thing as Al Gore in 2000 where he wanted that recount; but I’m sorry, not in all counties, just the ones where he was ahead. What kind of sick mind thinks things are fair when only one side benefits like that? Those who cherry pick the rules have no respect for them.

Incredible, but not surprising at all.

The Clinton Machine will stop at nothing, the only thing that surprises me about it is how blatantly they do these things. They don’t care that people know they are behaving like scum, they don’t care that Bill is furthering trashing the image of how an ex-president should behave. Horrible.

These power hungry crooks have no respect for any rule, except the rule that says they can make money and hurt anyone who gets in their way.

IF the republican party had any guts or wisdom, the Clintons would be treated as national embarrassments, not front runners.

I think the other dems did not have their names on the ballot in Mich and Clinton snuck hers in at the last minute. So the votes are for Clinton and Uncommitted.

BTW the dems were idiots to not count those states, but why are we surprised that she wants the rules changed after the fact. Typical double cross by the Toons.

There are polls and then there are THE polls.

How did Gore know to focus on certain counties in Florida in 2000?

How did Kerry know to focus on Ohio in 2004?

How did Carter know he was toast in 1980?

THE polls.

What do the Clintons hear that makes her campaign like she is a loser and gets Bill more worked up than a Playboy magazine without those annoying articles?

I agree. I think Romney is so ambitious, he might pick J.C. Watts or Dr. Rice to be his running mate. If she does not pick an African-american as her running mate after the overt racism she and bill have shown this campaign, she’s done.

I also thought this would happen at the convention, not now.

The shamelessness of their ruthless pursuit of power is unprecedented in American politics and reminiscent of a banana republic. The media, of course, will not call them on this but simply egg them on to pump ratings and generate more ad revenue.

Rebates+Hillary = Bread+circuses.

She and bill have acted like sheets Byrd this campaign season. The black vote may not be up for grabs. But it may be depressed enough to cause her to lose close states. If the gop nominee picks an African-american like Watts, Dr. Rice, Steele, the nominee might get 20% of the black vote. And if this happens she’s done.

You nailed it.

Obama's campaign is beginning to regain traction and is fighting to keep California and New York close since they are _not_ winner take all on the Democratic side. If Obama can gather a lot of delegates in the south and kick her tail in Illinois this could start to get interesting.

There’s no such thing as voter fraud as far as the RATS are concerned. Lining up the opposition against the wall and gunning them down would be ok if they could get away with it.
