  • MoveOn: Romney Political Suicide

    08/11/2012 12:32:54 PM PDT · by Bryanw92 · 54 replies email | Aug 11, 2012 | Justin Reuben
    Dear MoveOn member, Breaking news: Mitt Romney just picked tea party hero Paul Ryan as his running mate. And Romney may have just committed political suicide. Paul Ryan is the author of the most extreme right-wing budget ever proposed in Congress. He wants to dismantle Medicare, privatize Social Security, and cut taxes for millionaires while raising taxes on the middle class.1 Simply put, the policies Paul Ryan stands for are politically toxic. But here's the thing: Paul Ryan isn't just a extremist—he's young, smart, and charming. The media constantly describe him as looking like "the boy next door." He's the...

    Today Barack Obama earned the endorsement of MoveOn, one of the largest grassroots membership organizations in the United States, after clobbering Hillary Clinton by 40 percent in Internet balloting. Obama led the final tally 70.4% to 29.6%, clearing the supermajority required for the endorsement. MoveOn, which has never endorsed a presidential candidate before, boasts that it has 1.7 million members in Super Tuesday states. The group has over half a million members in California alone – roughly one out of ten primary voters in Tuesday's largest state. "We've learned that the key to achieving change in Washington without compromising core...

And if past patterns are any guide, a number of Democrats are embarrassed, and even angered, by MoveOn’s actions but are afraid to reveal the true extent of their feelings. MoveOn simply has too much fundraising clout — and a fear-inducing inclination to attack Democrats who stray from the MoveOn line — for many in the party to take it on...

    Peace activists are hoping this weekend's anti-war protest in Kennebunkport will be a catalyst for broadening the anti-war movement to encompass environmental, labor, health care and social justice issues. Gregory Rec/Staff Photographer Bob Walter, husband of protest organizer Jamilla el Sharfei, makes signs Thursday for the weekend event. "We need to talk about the systemic change that is needed in our country to keep us from going into future wars," said Jamilla el Sharfei, the event organizer. El Sharfei has been planning the three-day protest for almost a year, and has worked to supplement the anti-war theme by including representatives...

    Congress’s failure to secure a timetable for withdrawing American troops from Iraq has split anti-war activists on the tactical question of whether to attack Democrats, who now control Capitol Hill. The split has also underlined accusations among some activists that MoveOn has abandoned its credentials as an issue-based advocacy group and now instead provides cover for Democratic Party leaders. Anti-war activists throughout the country are united in spending August pressing lawmakers to bring U.S. troops home. But tensions within the movement have been bubbling for months over tactics and whether their fire should be aimed exclusively at Republicans. The divisions...

    Congress recently passed a bill setting a deadline to end the war in Iraq. But President Bush just vetoed the bill -- ignoring the will of the American people. We're gathering at emergency response rallies across the country. We'll bring noise-makers to show that the Bush administration cannot ignore the voices of the people. This is an important moment to step out and show our strength in numbers -- we have to swiftly prove that the majority of the people aren't with the president. We want Congress to stand firm and end this war.

    Sen. Joe Lieberman stands virtually alone among Democrats after expressing his staunch support for the Bush administration’s handling of the war in Iraq. An official with the liberal activist group said the group might go so far as to back a Democratic challenger to Lieberman in next year’s Senate race, according to the Hartford Courant. On Tuesday Lieberman published an editorial in the Wall Street Journal – reported by NewsMax – saying that his recent trip to Iraq convinced him further that the U.S. should not abandon "27 million Iraqis to 10,000 terrorists.” The next day in an address...

    MoveOn, the left wing political action group, sees a White House conspiracy in the announcement of President Bush's new Supreme Court nominee. When the White House revealed that the President would release the name of his pick Tuesday night, MoveOn quickly issued a press release suggesting the timing of the announcement was simply a "wag the dog" effort to help Karl Rove. The MoveOn release reads: "President Bush has apparently speeded up the announcement of his Supreme Court nominee to deflect public attention from the Karl Rove scandal." Evidence of the timing conspiracy? MoveOn cites an unnamed "Republican strategist" who...

Their latest "victory" was getting Howard Dean elected as the head of the DNC, but the biggest cheerleaders for that move were conservatives. They do like to believe they are winning though. Even on their Web site, they have a section listing's recent "victories." But only ten "victories" are listed from June of 2004. And one of those is a clear loss as it cites the fact that "36 Senators Object to Gonzales' Confirmation...

The sentiment surrounding the liberal online powerhouse was neatly summed up by The Onion, a well-known satire publication, in its spoof headline: "MoveOn CurlsUp InCorner."[snip]Armed with over $30 million raised from donors ranging from students to billionaire financier George Soros, MoveOn moved well beyond cyberspace -- organizing star-studded concerts, airing television ads produced by A-list Hollywood directors and mobilizing 70,000 members to walk precincts in key battleground states.

But has come under attack from the Republican National Committee (RNC), which has launched a campaign of malicious misinformation to divert attention from the creativity and power of the Bush in 30 Seconds contest. We need your help to make sure the media don't fall for it. RNC Chairman Ed Gillespie launched the attack on "Fox News Sunday," and the RNC followed it with press releases and calls to reporters. The charges centered on two ads...

    SIMON WIESENTHAL CENTER CRITICIZES MOVEON.ORG FOR POSTING AD COMPARING BUSH TO HITLER The Simon Wiesenthal Center sharply criticized for accepting and posting an ad comparing President George Bush to Adolf Hitler. “Politics and preparing for a presidential election is one thing, but comparing the Bush Administration’s fight against Al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein with the policies of Adolf Hitler is shameful and beyond the pale and has no place in the legitimate discourse of American politics,” said Rabbi Marvin Hier, the Center’s dean and founder. “This ad is not about Democrats or Republicans - it is about lies and...

    LEXINGTON, Ky. -- President Bush and the GOP leadership are suddenly pushing through Congress the biggest spending bill in history, the $820 billion "Omnibus" bill. In this bill are two hidden clauses that reverse important victories on which the voices of millions of Americans were heard: Protecting overtime pay and stopping media consolidation. You see, the Republicans have this thing about speeding bills through so people cannot have the time to digest what is in them. They did it in Colorado and Texas and were successful at it so they keep doing it. People should know the truth about the...

    <p>In a June 6 speech about Medicare, President Bush said, "We must protect seniors from high medical costs that can rob them of their savings." And with the recently passed Medicare bill, which adds a prescription drug benefit to the government's health insurance program for seniors, the president claims to have done just that.</p>

    As you probably have discerned, the lovelies at have moved-on from their original charter of mewling about "vicious right-wing extremist attacks on President Clinton's personal sex life" to adopt a particularly strident blend of anti-America-ism, hate-Bush-ism, and appeasment of terrorists. Well. Now through the magic of the Web they have arranged almost 3,000 "house parties" this Sunday at which a propaganda video, "Uncovered: The Whole Truth About the Iraq War" will be shown. You too can sign up to attend or host a house party at I checked and there are four such parties within ten miles of...

    Former Vice President Al Gore says the Bush White House is using the Sept. 11 terror attacks to justify a major offensive against the freedoms and liberties Americans have enjoyed for centuries. "They have taken us much farther down the road toward an intrusive, 'big brother'-style government – toward the dangers prophesied by George Orwell in his book '1984' – than anyone ever thought would be possible in the United States of America," Gore charged in a speech. Gore, who lost the disputed 2000 presidential election to President Bush, brought many in the crowd of 3,000 to their feet Sunday...

    Al Gore has charged that the Bush administration is attempting to cover-up the 9/11 investigation by dismissing the Senate Intelligence Committee. In a speech sponsored by the Communist Group, Gore dismissed the partisan Democrat memo advising the committee to use intelligence information for political purposes as "trivial", and accused Bush of over-reaching in his authority, in much the same way as Richard Nixon did when he fired his Chief Investigator during the Watergate scandal. It was reported here that Senator Frist disbanded the Senate Intellignce Committee after the partisan memo revealed it would be unable to carry out its...

    So you think you accomplished something by stealing another election and putting that dummy goon "Ahhnuld" in as Governor. Well he's an idiot just like that other installed resident George (imbecile) W. Bush. The reason California's economy is so bad is the fault of the white house resident and his moronic economic policies. Also, his Enron buddies screwed California with the energy contracts. So after Ahhnie screws California royally and the nation sees what corrupt fools W and the repuggies are, the Democrats will take control of the nation again for 40 years. Hasta La Vista baybee

    You Knew It Was Coming (Dean Site trashes new Official George W. Bush Campaign Blog) George W. Bush now has a campaign blog. Matt will have more on this in the morning, but in the meantime, inspired by a different Texan, I'd like to issue my own personal response: Mr. President, I'm a blogger. I know blogs. Bloggers are friends of mine. And your site, sir, is not a blog.We welcome all readers of this new somewhat blog-like site to use this as an open thread to discuss what you think of it, because the Bush folks aren't interested in...
