Democratic disunity on display at Rules and Bylaws Committee meeting

| 10 Comments

WASHINGTON--I spent Saturday at the Democratic National Committee's Rules and Bylaws meeting here. I blogged but never wrote a full story because I turned instead to the breaking news that Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) was quitting his Trinity United Church of Christ. For a full account of the day, read the report from Time Magazine's Jay Newton-Small.

The behavior at the meeting of The Democratic Rules and Bye-Laws Committee poses a lot of serious questions, one for such an important meeting where supporters allowed to turn into more like a footie game, more serious was that some the 30 members of the committee stood up, got a little too excited and clapped like a footie crowd when they felt points has been scored for the candidate they supported, this was nothing less than a distance when the Party was looking for Unity! - Harold Ickes was shameful and the way he treated many speakers, from the outset it was clear that the only ruling acceptable by Harold was the one he put forward, this perhaps is in order, but you can respect others opinions! and the final statement from Ickes of the possible Threat was just another Disgrace. Hillary is the person who needs to rise now to the situation and unite her loyal supporters for the sake of the Party by standing aside.

The disunity among the Democrats comes from the driveby media being in the tank for Obama. Scott Rasmussen says Obama has been hurt by Rev. Jeremiah Wright and now by Father Pfleger. The polls show people believe Wrights views and Pfleger's are Obamas also since he is into Black Liberation Theology. Michelle is too. Obama has hurt himself and his quitting Trinity United Church of Christ came too little too late the damge is done and more will come out in November with the Tony Rezko jury still deliberating. If Rezko is found guilty it will affect Obama and his 17 year legal career and friendship. His comments in San Francisco about bitter people clinging to God and guns has ruined him in most white peoples minds. He is an elitist tied too closely to the nutroots in the Democrat Party Move On.org and Daily Kos.

This is outrageous. Hillary is the only one who can win and the Obamanots know it. Why gouge out the eyes of the ally?

The FIX is in. In the long honored tradition of SOUTH SIDE CHICAGO politics, the souless, characterless, insipid, weak, lame, pandering, corrupt, beholden, YES MAN, is APPOINTED.

By short, fat, ridiculous, Howard Fudd, the former mayor of Vermont, who is so far above his level of incompetence in his c7urrent job he has to take vertigo medication just to get to his office every day. Where he learns that THE RNC HAS INFINITELY MORE RESOURCES GATHERED FOR THE COMING FIGHT. Where he learns that his own INEPT MISMANAGEMENT HAS FRACTURED THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

By that bizarre cautionary tale on the dangers of EXCESSIVE ENHANCEMENT SURGERY, the California LOVE CHILD OF BELA LUGOSI.

By the angry African-American female with the chance to redress old wounds perpetrated by non African-American females.

The fraud that has been perpetrated here will stain the Democratic Party for a long time.

Two hundred + years ago, the slaves were considered 3/5th of a person. Evidently we haven't progressed, afterall. Because Michiganers and Floridians are considered 1/2 a person.

MAYBE YOUR LAST NAME IS UNCOMMITTED!
VOTE FOR OBAMA IN NOVEMBER AND MAYBE YOU CAN USE YOUR SUV AGAIN!

MICHIGAN AND FLORIDA DO A BETTER JOB NEXT TIME!
TO THE VOTERS, VOTE FOR OBAMA AND LET'S MAKE AMERICA A BETTER PLACE!

SURPRISING THAT BARACK OBAMA QUITS TRINITY UNITED CHURCH?

1).Obama stratically gives a speech or something; to make the "news"; so as to upstage Clinton.

2).He no longer needs the contacts made in Chicago or Trinity.

3).He'll be better able to do his "unifying" without any conflict of interests.

4).Now that it's pretty much in the bag for him to get the "superdelegated" democratic presidential nomination, -is there a chapel in the White House?

Uh, No surprise.
