Another Reason to Get Rid of the DLC

From my friends at AMERICAblog:

DNC chair wannabe's troublesome relationship with Scaife-financed right-wing think tank by John in DC - 1/7/2005 01:32:23 PM

That would be Tim Roemer. Just what we need. Another Democrat who belongs to the Republican wing of the Democratic party.

I told you that the DNC will be TOAST if Roemer gets the job. May as well stick with McAuliffe and the rest of us should start looking at the Green Party....if we want politicians who are progressive, liberal and advocates for social justice.

I like the Green Party, aside from its unfortunate (and apparently waning) fascination with Ralph Nader. Maybe we ought to start steering progressives and liberals over there and abandon the Democratic Party to playing footsie with the Republicans.

Of course, it puts me in mind of the Brits' three-party structure, with Tories and Labour playing foosball with government functions while the Liberal Party stands outside and howls curses at both. I don't want to consign us to irrelevance.

I think you have a point; however, I'm more inclined to register "Independent" and vote with a progressive, liberal slant.

The Democratic Party has been infected with DLC types to the point we will have to declare them "DOA".

Hillary Clinton angers progressive democrats
Hillary Clinton's endorsement of the Democratic Leadership Council has angered many on the progressive side of the party. The truth is at this point in time the majority of Democrats are progressive. Even DLC head Al From admits it in his recent statement "There has never been a time in the party when liberals outnumbered conservatives" Well, whether the DLC likes it or not that time is now and the breakdown appears to be 60% progressive 40% other(center/right). The DLC advocates a complete disassociation with Michael Moore (which at this time is ridiculous since Moore has been credited with being national eye-opener for Democrats and even some Republicans), unrestricted access to colleges and universities for ROTC and increased defense spending. The DLC just doesn't understand that we don't need two Republican parties. Senator Clinton at this time has not declared herself to be a candidate for the 2006 election but most polls show that she is the Democratic front runner at this point, yet like the DLC she seems to be out of touch with the true concerns of most Democrats. The junior senator from New York has said very little about the Iraq war which most Democrats enthusiastically oppose. The Daily Koz had this to say about the DLC - Hillary Clinton connection "If she wanted to give a speech to a centrist organization truly interested in bringing the various factions of the party together, she could've worked with NDN," the blog said in a reference to the New Democrat Network, with which Daily Kos's Markos Moulitsas is associated. "Instead, she plans on working with the DLC to come up with some common party message yadda yadda yadda. Well, that effort is dead on arrival. The DLC is not a credible vehicle for such an effort. Period."
