Internet Ad, and Is It the DLC or the CDL?
MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON
First off, I was glad to see you talking about the duping of the Democrats by one of their own. I never thought, as many do, that any Democrat would use a GOP thuggish scam such as the one we see in "Hands off the Internet." However, I have to keep reminding myself that these times are not new . . . it wouldn't be the first time that Democracy was overthrown for personal wealth, even by Democrats, but, it seems to be always those DLC Democrats . . . this also brings me back to that Right Wing Christian Coalition member that they hired, (don't remember his name) to work for the Democrats, so they can go after the Christian Coalition vote, which we have plenty of religious people in this country who don't believe in government interference with religious practices.
Another yellow stripe on the back of these Democrats. That's like hiring the ex-Bush staff members. Makes no sense at all, but it wouldn't surprise me.
These people scare me because if we don't gain control back of Congress, it will be their fault (crappy Democratic leadership -- CDL), not the fault of the GOP, they have done everything they can to lose their undeserved power by flouting their loyalty to Bush instead of to this country, which brings us to those type of Democrats. All are sellouts. The reason they (DLC) have trouble leading is that they don't possess the passion down deep in their heart of hearts. It's not there. That's why they are so close to being identified with today's GOP. People can't fake that kind of passion. But, I would be happy if they would just "try to fake it." But, they don't believe in the core of Democratic values. If they did, they would never have backed Bush in anything.
I was so angry when I learned who was behind that push for the Internet, and even more angry to know that we are being taken by the DLC probably in other ways that we have no idea about. No leadership at all, and I'm sure all of those Democratic blogs must be furious. To my mind, there should be some kind of clause in such contracts, so they don't lose all control of their own sites, because this kind of ad is Bush GOP type of trickery (fraud), and I have to say that I have never fully trusted the set of values of anyone who claims to be a member of the DLC, but I still was surprised about this.
Just a thought,
