DAILY TALKING POINT 6/19/08: ROE V WADE WAS YOUR GRANDMA’S BATTLE. YOUR GRANDMA WON. AND YOUR GRANDMA WON’T VOTE FOR OBAMA. LISTEN TO YOUR GRANDMA.
Quote of the Day, via Shorttermer: ”I am aware that many object to the severity of my language; but is there not cause for severity? I will be as harsh as truth, and as uncompromising as justice . . . I am in earnest — I will not equivocate — I will not excuse — I will not retreat a single inch — and I will be heard!” William Lloyd Garrison.
Dear Senator Boxer,
I am one of the 18 million voters who voted Hillary in as the DNC nominee for president. Obama stole this nomination and I will never vote for him. I am actively working to see Obama and any Democrat who supported Obama in this travesty lose in the November election.
I am a 53-year-old progressive socialist and a physician who has worked actively and hard for the Democratic Party since before I could vote. No more. I have waited too long to see this party support a woman for president.
If you support this lying, hypocritical sycophant, then I consider you to be someone I will vote against in every election you run in.
And, just in case you think I’m just angry and I’ll forget it when the time comes – you should know that I and millions of others who felt the same way left the organization NOW when they tried to force their choice down our throats, I wrote in Shirley Chisholm when the DNC let her down, I stood in the freezing cold to get signatures for the ERA in Missouri, I spent my own money to fly to Denver and support John Kerry – only to have him quit at the first sign of trouble, and now I will stand with millions of others who resist having our voices drowned out by the machinations of a flip-flopping tyro who only desires to win the presidency without having any ability to BE president.
I will not see my dreams of progressive, social programs and REAL change endangered or destroyed by 4 years of this incompetent back-room deal maker muddling through the train-wreck of a financial crisis looming down upon us. We need someone who can actually appreciate what it takes to get through this mess and make in one piece to the other side. Someone like Hillary.
And, NO, IT ISN’T TOO LATE TO STAND UP FOR THE TRUE NOMINEE OF THE DNC AND HONOR THE WILL OF THE GREATER THAN 18 MILLION MAJORITY VOTERS WHO CHOOSE HER AS OUR STANDARD BEARER. In fact, it’s actually time for you and women like you who were voted in by women like me to take responsibility for recovering the honor and integrity of this party.
There are millions of us gathering for the coming fight in Denver. My husband and I are only two of them -proud PUMA Pac members. We will not forget to -
REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER!
