President Obama said, “They talk about me like a dog.” But, who are they? I am tired of hearing rough talk about this White House from Democrats eager to toss whomever under the bus to win reelection. Of course, some political observers think this plan was cooked up in the House Speaker’s office, the DNC or maybe the White House itself.
In Georgia, Rep. Jim Marshall and Governor candidate Roy Barnes aren’t mincing words about their disdain for the healthcare reform law. No Bush or Clinton would take this from inside their party; Hillary would be on their blanks. If the Democrats continue offending the base, they are toast. Recent polls indicate that losing one or both Houses of Congress is a forgone conclusion so let’s have the losing ones be those who don’t understand loyalty. And if some Republicans must be elected, we should hope they aren’t the crazy ones who are hell-bent on fear and division.
I thought a dog was man’s best friend but some of these Blue Dogs are biting the hands that feed them. In my community, we might need to take a better look at that Que dog, Morehouse Man and Libertarian running for governor, John Monds. A dog can’t stop an attacking elephant or donkey but one can make them think twice and you must admire Monds’ dedication to what he believes.
The people Democrats are trying to help are the same people who took three hours to see the movie Takers this week but they can’t take 10 minutes to early vote. Al Gore learned this the hard way and President Obama doesn’t deserve this from his party. In my corner of Georgia, the congressional Blue Dog has earned our support. Can you say the same about yours?
