To all the anti-war pacifists in my party.? Please remember the following.

No Democratic candidate for president in 2008 who advocated what you now advocate made it past the Iowa caucuses.

Not one.

If Barack Obama had changed his Afghanistan proposals, which he has held to, without variation, for more than 3 solid years, to what you now advocate, at any time while he ran for president, we’d now have President John McCain and Vice President Sarah Palin.

The Democratic Party electorate beyond this website didn’t just reject every presidential candidate advocating what you now advocate – that electorate buried them.

With good reason.? There is zero chance that a Democrat holding the position you advocate can win the presidency.

Zero.

If you wanted to vote for the Afghanistan withdrawal you now advocate, no such candidate was on the ballot, because our Democratic Party REFUSED to put such a candidate on the ballot.

And if you decide that you did, in fact, vote for the wrong candidate, and would rather have stayed home than vote for a Democrat who advocated this position tirelessly, without variation, his entire campaign, that means that you would prefer to have VICE PRESIDENT SARAH PALIN than a Democrat in the White House.

Is that what you wanted?

  • Your headline sounded like instructions on how to catch a hideous disease – How to contract elephantiasis; how to get infectious scabies, how to get VP Palin.

    I'm concerned that the more leftist of the party are feeling betrayed to the point of abandoning support for Obama. If you visit Michael Moore's site and some of the other lefty blogs, there's a lot of anger.

    I've been harping on this same thing – this should come as no surprise to anyone who voted for the man, and there was nobody running, who had even a semi-realistic chance of winning the election, who wouldn't have been more hawkish than Obama.

    But, this is starting to make me nervous about the 2010 and 2012 elections. If Dems sit home on their asses because they're pissed off or have lost their enthusiasm, this could get gruesome.

    i was originally a kucinich backer in the prez primaries. my gf was on the o-train very early and i eventually came to support him too, largely through her influence. my gf is now very displeased with the obama administration for a variety of reasons to the point that she has expressed regret about supporting him. she doesn't even like to talk about the subject.

    we are the democratic base. the dems got problems.
