Posted on 07/22/2012 7:55:20 AM PDT by Kaslin
Democrats are abandoning Barack Obamas ship.
Last week Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi instructed Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives to not attend this Septembers Democratic National Convention. Instead, Ms. Pelosi insisted, their time would be better spent campaigning at home, rather than partying in Charlotte, N.C.
Ms. Pelosis announcement falls in line with the AFL-CIO, which announced the previous week that it wont be spending money to bankroll the convention. And Pelosi and her Big Labor friends are in lockstep with Democrat U.S. Senators Jon Tester of Montana, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, and Joe Manchin of West Virginia all of whom have chosen to avoid Barack Obamas nomination for a second term.
After three and a half years of Barack Obama radicalizing their party, it now appears that some very powerful Democrats have had a startling realization: the Obama agenda is both dysfunctional and destructive, and has become politically lethal Americans see that it bares little resemblance to Americas time-honored history and heritage, and they have begun to reject it outright.
Democrat candidates at all levels of government will go about campaigning over these next few months, making promises based upon their party platform without mentioning President Obamas name. But as they talk about the following agenda items all of which appear in the issues section of Democrats.Org, the national partys web home consider asking the candidates the accompanying questions below.
Lets start with the issue of energy independence. Democrats tell us that President Obama knows we cant just drill our way to lower gas prices, and that their party is focused on developing all of Americas natural resources... The President himself has said that he is committed to an all of the above approach to energy policy, implying that hes okay with petroleum-based energy, along with the alternative energy development that hes promoted.
This sounds great- but consider asking Democrats this question: If President Obama is committed to an all of the above strategy, why did he reject the Keystone XL pipeline project that would have produced employment opportunities from the Canadian border all the way to Texas? In reality, an all of the above approach to energy policy means anything except Big Oil within the Obama worldview but Democrats would prefer to ignore this.
Your Democrat candidate may prefer, instead, to tell you about their partys agenda for green energy. On this point, you may wish to ask how do you feel about CBS News reporting that the Obama Administration has lost $6.5 billion of our money already on what they described as risky green energy ventures? Did CBS lie to us?
You may also hear from your Democrat candidate that the party is fighting for civil rights on behalf of LGBT couples which is to say that theyre working for legal sanctioning of same-sex marriage. Mention to them that Democrats in the California legislature are now working on a bill to expand parental rights to more than two parents per child. Under the California plan, any individual child could have three or perhaps more, legally identified mommies and daddies. Then ask the Democrat, Why would you limit the structuring of marriages and families to only two adults? Given how President Obamas position on this issue has evolved, and given the highly evolved position among California Democrats, arent you being a bit exclusionary and narrow-minded, trying to limit a marriage or a family to only two adults?
Concerns about the economy are top of mind for us all, which puts Democrats in an awkward situation. Still, your Democrat candidate will likely remind you that President Obama inherited a bad economy and is now working to creating jobs. To this you may wish to simply ask how is a job created? Then listen carefully to the response. It will likely be highly amusing.
There are so many other questions to ask of your local Democrat candidate, regardless of the issues the candidate raises. Why does the so-called healthcare reform law expand the force and power of the I.R.S.? Why are illegal aliens exempt from the Obamacare tax? Is it purely coincidental that the executives of the green energy companies that were recipients of President Obamas grants and loans were also donors to his previous presidential campaign? Why has President Obama abandoned the work requirements imposed on welfare recipients by President Bill Clinton? Why is 80% of the Department of Agricultures budget spent on food stamps, while less than 20% of it is devoted to the farming industry? Why is the Obama Administration collaborating with the government of Mexico to give American food stamps to illegal aliens? Your local Democrat will probably not want to hear these questions, and may have to admit that they disagree with parts of the Presidents agenda.
You might even hear your local Democrat say that theyre abandoning the Presidents agenda for America altogether just like so many of them have abandoned the Presidents convention in September.
Dems on the run
IMO, I don’t believe for one minute that the rats are abandoning zero. They are playing to their constituents for voting for zero care.
Even money-stupid democrats realize the convention is unnecessary when they already have a chosen ticket running for re-election. Besides, no convention, no embarrassing challengers.
Maybe Nancy Lugosi is trying to warn her fellow ‘rats to stay out of Charlotte because she and her OWS team have another surprise planned to get some sympathy for the left...
Like ‘rats from a sinking ship!!!
They won't abandon Obama.
Remember the MSM is still lying and covering up for him.
We'll see the same illegal overseas and other contributions
We'll see voter fraud ten times worse
We'll see the race card pulled as never before
Don't think the rats will give up their Communist coup without a struggle.
This will be the dirtiest fight in election history
We'll be lucky if we EVER get rid of the Marxist/Muslim usurper.
People are missing the point on this one. Pelosi knows that if you control the states, you control Congress. Dems want to keep the Senate and take back the House. They can’t do that without control of the states.
God Help us and this great nation
If the parties were reversed, the State-Owned Media would be writing stories about how the Republican party was disintegrating and on the verge of disintegrating.
The SOM would also be pushing a third party with all its might. Another Ross Perot would have been found (Ron Paul? Don Trump?) and convinced that This Is Your Moment.
‘Big Oil’ needs to fall in disuse by all, especially our side.
Petroleum is ‘big’ due strictly to physics and chemistry i.e. hydrocarbons are the only way to generate significant power!
I would suggest that they kindly refrain from ruining the GOP and strongly encourage them to fix their own party. Use the tea party model if they must but please clearly make a distinction that they are left leaning.
Nowhere NEAR enough see it. It should be a huge majority.
good questions! Most libs are not deep thinkers, so trying to have a rational discussion with them usually is pointless. But asking some simple questions with the potential to jog some of their braincells into activating a little rational thought is a good approach.
“You might even hear your local Democrat say that theyre abandoning the Presidents agenda for America altogether just like so many of them have abandoned the Presidents convention in September.”
If they admitted that, it would be a lie. If Tester, McCaskill et al are reelected in November, they will vote for Harry Reid as majority leader and the progressive agenda will churn on, regardless of their individual votes. Their problem is that Zero is unpopular in their states.
Not that they actually disagree with him all that much. If they really disagreed with Zero and Reid, they would apologize for being democrats and either switch parties or retire in shame.
Stipulated....but as you point out I meant a transportable source. Other than horses*** :)
Obama is where the Democratic Party has been going, a wasted, disappointing trip, but they are there now, with no place left to go. Bummer!
