Obama's Liberal Shock Troops
By JOHN FUND
July 12, 2008
While he is a skilled candidate, Barack Obama's ability to surprise, stun and sweep over the vaunted Clinton Machine to capture the Democratic nomination was rooted in his background as a community organizer. He's now turning those skills to the general election.
But liberals aren't just on the march on the presidential level. This year, liberal activists are spending parts of the fortunes of their wealthy donors to transform politics at the state and local level.
In 2005, billionaire investor George Soros convened a group of 70 super-rich liberal donors in Phoenix to evaluate why their efforts to defeat President Bush had failed. One conclusion was that they needed to step up their long-term efforts to dominate key battleground states. The donors formed a group called Democracy Alliance to make grants in four areas: media, ideas, leadership and civic engagement. Since then, Democracy Alliance partners have donated over $100 million to key progressive organizations.
Take Colorado, which has voted Republican for president in nine of the last 10 presidential elections. But in 2006, Colorado elected a Democratic governor and legislature for the first time in over 30 years. Denver will be the site for the party's 2008 presidential convention. Polls show Barack Obama would carry the state today. This hasn't happened by chance. The Democracy Alliance poured money into Colorado to make it a proving ground for how progressives can take over a state.

What has Obama ever run? Nothing. He has not even run a Boy Scout troop. And the Obamunists want him to run the country?!? That’s like hiring a stripper to do brain surgery.
Part of the problem is that the GOP hasnt really helped their cause lately.
McCain is the lesser of two evils, the GOP should have picked a stronger person.
To Hell in a handbasket we go.
The bottom line: big government benefits the marxists. And our success as a nation is being used to create a bloated government on all levels.
Which is why the GOP’s strategy to move toward the left and support big government is a mistake. Conservatives are being shut out by both parties, and our nation is suffering because of it.
CLEAR and PRESANT DANGER ALERT!
"We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we have set. We have got to have a civilian national security force that is just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded." -Barack Obama July 2, 2008
And at least with a stripper, I’d get a LITTLE satisfaction.
With the Obamessiah. . . .it’s going to be pain, pain, pain: the death by a thousand cuts. . .
So, this means that the government is going to buy each of us a gun?
Everyone needs to take another long hard look at Obama. There was a story yesterday (Fri. 7/11/08) in the AMERICAN FREE PRESS about three members of Obama’s church, Trinity United Church, who were murdered, the last in Nov. 07. Another man, a good friend of Obama, a Larry Sinclair, told the story. Another friend of Obama, Lawrence Lessig, also has the story out. Look it up and read it...Do we really need this guy runnig the country, Obama, who has such questionable friends??
I’d rather have a stripper do brain surgery on me, than have Obummer as Pres.
Obama.....out Alinski’d Hillary
“The Democracy Alliance poured money into Colorado to make it a proving ground for how progressives can take over a state.”
They support the progress of the socialist state, ergo “Progressives”.
He ran the Dhimmitude booth at his junior high’s annual festival.
This is the biggest crock of Horse Scoot I’ve read in a long time. John Fund no less!
So, allegedly in three years time the Democrats with Super Hero George Soros as backing and cheerleader have turned Colorado into a Democrat enclave. BS.
Liberals started taking over Colorado at least twenty years ago if not longer. Liberals=Democrats. Primarily Entertainment moguls began buying up property, and building their mansions years ago. Liberals begit Liberals like disease spreads, and Voila Colorado today. Same thing happened in California, and spread to Oregon etc.
Their claim to the successful Liberal domination of Colorado as result of their efforts as “Democracy Alliance” is blowing smoke up their own rear ends. It’s BS.
Years ago a friend of mine, now passed on set a World Flight Record with a buddy of his. After 64 days of flying their single engined aircraft, setting a World Record unbroken to this day, upon landing they were approached by a producer of engine oil product to claim they used it during their historic flight. They refused to do so, but that isn’t my point.
For Democracy Alliance to claim success of the Liberalization of Colorado is similar to that oil product producer attempting to ride the fame of my friends flight record when in fact they had nothing to do with it period.
This is a very good recipe for all-out civil war.
