A PUMA’s Response To Don Fowler….
The undemocratic insanity continues from the highest levels! I read this article and definitely had to respond with an email of my own to Don Fowler, Former Chair of the DNC.
“It’s time to support Barack Obama without conditions or demands.”
Oh please, Don, we are way past that time. You and the DNC are so far behind the curve on this one. You really thought we were going to just go back to our lives after what the RBC and the DNC did to Michigan and Florida? This is America, Don, and we have seen one election stolen; we aren’t about to let it happen again by our own party. Why do you think Puma and Just Say No Deal exists right now?
Did you really write and send this drivel out? Really? Do you really think that just because you and the rest of the DNC say that Barack Obama won, it makes it true? Who is schmoozing who now? Do you really think we are going to get behind this smoke and mirror rock star candidate just because you say so; just like the RBC told all those Michigan uncommitted and Hillary voters that they really wanted to vote for Barack? There was definitely a sense of democracy at work there. I wonder if the Michigan voters are still upset about the RBC usurping their votes? Too bad for you, the DNC cannot change our votes in November unless the delegates nominate the stronger presidential candidate who is ahead in the polls right now. Why is Rasmussen running polls of Clinton against McCain if not to show you the pulse of America? This is not a condition or a demand, it is the truth; a plain and simple statement of fact.
I thought this was a democracy where we are allowed to think for ourselves and speak freely. I did not know that we were little children that needed to be put in the corner for acting up. I did not realize that the voice of dissent was no longer an American Right. How can you possibly say that Barack Obama won and Hillary Clinton lost when neither achieved the required amount of pledged delegates to receive the nomination. It’s still undecided and won’t be until the vote is taken in Denver. I am not even going to imagine what kind of hornet’s nest you will be stirring up if Hillary Clinton’s name is not put into nomination considering Barack Obama needed the help of 55 uncommitted delegates and the help of 4 Hillary Clinton delegates, and then, because that was not enough to push his sorry behind across the line, the DNC pushed the superdelegates to endorse him. He hasn’t won anything. You all are so afraid there wouldn’t be enough time to campaign for the general election and yet you pick the worst possible candidate to go up against the Republican Machine. Are you NUTS? What was this? A flip of a coin or do you really think that Hillary is going to get beaten by the RNC? Maybe that was a possibility in January, but by May that option was off the table and on it’s way into the ether. The country came to see her as a truly American champion and now you wonder why PUMA exists, and is growing each day. The DNC needs to get over itself. We have.
Since when did the election of the Leader of The Free World compare to a sporting event? How can you even talk about this election in those terms. I am tired of being talked down to.
As for being fatigued and irritated, you need to “get over it”. We are citizens of America speaking to you and you are required as the DNC Member At-Large of South Carolina to listen.
I will tell you what time it is. It’s time to put the welfare of this great country before whatever agenda the DNC has with electing Barack Obama. If you want to win in November, take back the White House, pull our country out of Iraq, debt, recession, etc.; then you better start talking to all those Superdelegates and make sure they understand that Barack doesn’t have a gnat’s chance in a hurricane against McCain, and McCain doesn’t have a chance against Hillary. When are the DNC and Superdelegates going to see that this tsunami of support for Democracy and Hillary is not going to go away no matter how much you wish, or try to bludgeon us with these silly emails.
Don, you supported Hillary; you are a Former Chair of the DNC; are you going to continue to be part of the problem or part of the solution?
