Here’s Barry speaking in Oregon:
‘From the very beginning, you knew that this journey wasn’t about me or any of the other candidates in this race. It was about whether this country, at this defining moment, will continue down the same road that has failed us for so long or whether we will seize this opportunity to take a different path, to forge a different future for this country that we love.
That’s the question that sent thousands upon thousands of you to high school gyms and VFW halls, to backyards and front porches, to steak fries and J.J. dinners, where you spoke about what the future would look like.
You spoke of an America where working families don’t have to file for bankruptcy just because a child gets sick, where they don’t lose their home because some predatory lender tricks them out of it, where they don’t have to sit on the sidelines of the global economy because they couldn’t afford the cost of a college education.
You spoke of an America where our parents and our grandparents don’t spend their retirement in poverty because some CEO dumped their pension, an America where we don’t just value wealth, but we value work and the workers who create it, as well.’
Interesting speech from a guy who voted to ‘cap’ credit card interest in bankruptcy cases at 33%. A guy who voted every single time Bush asked for more cash for the brutal and failed occupation of Iraq. A guy how missed a bunch of votes on important bills in the Senate. I guy who voted for Cheney’s Energy Bill. Who voted for the Farm ‘Pork’ Aid Bill. Read more about that below. But see…’Barry is the most liberal Senator…..’ So sez FAUX NOISE and look at him scurry around saying, ‘No….not me I’m not the most Liberal…..’ Well for once Barry you got that right. As of today Progressive Punch ranks him 41st a ways back from The Hill who is 30th. DiFi, Max Baucus and JIm Webb are more progressive than Barry. So….yeah, far from being a ‘Liberal’ or Progressive Barry’s almost to Rethug land as far a his record in the U.S. Senate is concerned.
Here’s The Hill speaking in what the ‘Boyz in the Blogz’ are calling a ‘concession’ speech, well they’ve characterized every speech she’s made since IA that way, to some folks in Florida:
‘Now, this year’s presidential election is like none other in history. And we have had more people engaging and volunteering, casting their ballots, than ever before. Everywhere I go, people tell me, “I’ve never given money to a campaign in my life; this year is different. I’ve never followed an election before; this time I can’t stop watching.” And there’s a reason for that. With our economy in crisis, and with two wars and our children’s future in the balance, more people than ever before are taking politics seriously.
I happen to welcome that because this is a democracy, and we’ve all got to participate. In fact, we want more democracy, not less democracy. We want more people taking a part in the selection of their president’.
Clik on thru and read the whole thing the woman has got her on the campaign trail speechifyin’ cranked the hell up. But just in case yer too lazy here’s the damn point which Barry don’t wanna talk about:
‘Here in Florida, more than 1.7 million people cast their vote, the highest primary turnout in the history of Florida. And nearly 600,000 voters in Michigan did the same. And not a day goes by that I don’t meet someone who grabs my hand or holds up a sign, no matter where I am, in Kentucky or anywhere else, and says, “Please, make my vote count.”
I receive dozens and dozens of letters and emails and phone calls, every couple of hours it seems like, all making the same urgent request: please count my vote. We used to be worried about voter apathy, didn’t we? We worried why Americans didn’t participate. Now, people are worried that their participation won’t matter.’
Registered Democrats of every gender and race are going to be disenfranchised so Barry can claim the nomination? Have I got that right. Donna Brazile and Howard Dean are gonna throw FL and MI under the bus and then they think they’ll win the GE with Barry of the Glass Jaw? Here’s my politial calculus: Barry + Donna + Howard = Republican Candidate for President Running on ‘Democrat’ Party ticket. Or….
Barry + Wright + Resko + Auchi + Michelle = President McSame.
Here’s a familiar voice speaking out:
‘Barack Obama talks about taking on the special interests. This farm bill would have been a perfect opportunity to do so. But Obama supported the bill, just as he supported the 2005 energy bill that was a Christmas tree for the oil and gas industries.’
Read the rest of David Brook’s article, it should be a sobering splash of cold water on the Kool-Aiders and their fellow-travelers in the ‘Democrat’ party.
All I got to say is: ‘Think for yourself!’
‘Don’t believe half of what you read.’
