THE DNC is TOAST if Roemer becomes the Next Chair
Greetings from the Christian Progressive Liberal. Hope everyone had a happy holidays. However, upon learning that Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are endorsing a known DLC, anti-choice, willing to privatize Social Security DINO Tim Roemer as Terry McAuliffe's Replacement, I have come to realize that the Democratic Party continues to want to be losers and endure massive amounts of abuse. Which, in my opinion, is just like a woman who can't break free of her abusive partner. And that's not acceptable.
At Daily Kos, there is talk of a massive exodus of Democrats from the Party and the donations are going to dry up if the DLC continues their death march on the Democratic Party. It would serve them (DLC) right.
And the Democratic Wing of the Democratic Party needs to become their own party for progressives, and liberals who want to return to the Party's core values. It's the only way we will have a voice - Pelosi and Reid are doing nothing to facilitate this, and they need to be fired, too.
At this point, since Pelosi is changing her tune, and becoming more DLC than the liberal she originally was, the Party could have done no worse if DLC-er Harold Ford got the Minority Leadership Post, and he was dissed by his own DLC collegues in favor of Pelosi back in 2002. Now, does anyone see how asinine the Democratic Leadership Council is? Their only solution to an inherently bad situation in Congress is to continue to embrace stale ideas that have been proven to fail, and to move the Party further to the right wing. What kind of logic or reasoning is that?
Why don't they do us all a favor and defect? Though it would result in a reduction in numbers, that does not always signal defeat. It's when we look like we're defeated that the Thug Party will start making the mistakes we need them to in order to regain our strength.
