Democrats DINO Elections Republicans

What Was The Message

The Blue Dog Democrats are saying that President Obama’s agenda is too progressive and that is why the governor’s races were won by Republicans.  Progressive Democrats are saying that Congress is moving too slowly on health care reform and that is why Republicans won these two governor’s races.  I have a different view.

In Virginia, the Democratic Party had a boring DINO as their candidate so the Democrats just stayed home.  In New Jersey, Corzine had his own issues, mainly, high property taxes.  Too bad for New Jersey, because Christi won’t be any better than Corzine.

The reason that the Democrats lost these two races is because of a poor choice of candidates.  If Democrats want to win next year, then they need candidates that excite the voters, especially the young voters and they need to stop fighting among themselves and get health care reform with a public option passed for Americans.  They also need to do something about keeping good paying jobs in this country and discourage companies from supplying jobs to China.

Republicans always show up to vote regardless of the qualifications of their candidate.  If Stalin or Hilter were the Republican candidate for office, the Republicans would still show up and vote for the Republican.  Democrats don’t operate that way.  Rather than vote for a poor candidate, Democrats will stay home.  This is how Republicans win elections.  It’s not that Republicans have highly qualified candidates that represent the values of Americans, it’s that Democrats have poor candidates.

Let this be a wake-up call to the Democratic Party leaders.  We will no longer hold our noses and vote for someone just because there is a “D” behind their name.  We want strong, progressive candidates who are willing to work for the good of all Americans and not just corporations and Wall Street.

A Mother of Five

There are various reasons why someone will support and vote the Obama/Biden ticket.  A mother of five, a life long Republican, is taking this election very seriously and she took a long, hard look at all the candidates.  She did her homework by researching each one’s position on issues and she watched both the Democratic and Republican conventions paying particular attention to the speeches presented by the nominees for Vice President and President.  A letter that she composed was posted on My2Buck$ .  This is a very thoughtful and objective letter.  It’s long and well worth reading.  John McCain and Sarah Palin are losing the moderate Republicans.

Barack Obama Campaign Democrats Elections Obama

What Can I Do?

With Barack Obama winning the majority of delegates, he will be the nominee for the Democratic Party. Hillary Clinton wants to campaign to the end as an example to other, younger women, that it is possible for a woman to become president of the United States. Even though Clinton doesn’t have enough and won’t have enough delegates, she has shown strength, endurance and courage and that she can “run with the big dogs”.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic As we prepare to win the general election in November, some of you may be asking the question, “What can I do?” There are many things that each of us can do to ensure a win in November. Here are a few:

  • Sign up as a volunteer with the Obama campaign.
  • Become a Democratic Precinct Committee person.
  • Reach out to your neighbors by organizing a house party/picnic or block party. All politics are local and your sphere of influence is strongest among people that you know or that live in your neighborhood.
  • Invite your local State Legislative candidate or candidate for Congress to this house party/picnic or block party as a way of getting people to attend. Let your guests know that they will have an opportunity to meet their local legislator or Congressman.
  • Help at the polls on Election Day. There are several things that you can do at the polls. You can get a certificate to be a “Poll Watcher” and work inside the polls or you can help outside the polls by handing out literature and talking to voters.
  • Volunteer to provide rides to the polls for people that need transportation.
  • Call your local County Democratic Party and ask them for more details or email us at and we will provide more details.

Barack Obama will need more Democrats in Congress to support the “Change” that we are working for.

Here are three candidates that we need to elect:

  • Bob Roggio to replace Jim Gerlach (R) in the PA 6th Congressional District.
  • Sam Bennet to replace Charles Dent (R) in the PA 15th Congressional District.
  • Bruce Slater to replace Joe Pitss (R) in the PA 16th Congressional District.

We also need to re-elect Tim Holden in the PA 17th Congressional District.

Links to these Congressional Candidates websites are posted on the “Candidate Websites” page.
