Come Out, Come Out, Where Ever You Are: Should Progressive Democrats Look Elsewhere For 2012?
I think many will agree with me that this is not the man and policies we voted for.
As a former delegate to the 2004 Democrat National Convention, one of my major disappointments was that John Kerry didn’t fight back against his attackers, especially the “Swift Boaters.”
Now we see the same thing in this President and his administration.
Why is it that Republican’s seem to have no problem going for the “jugular” and Democrats don’t, can’t and won’t, even when the issues, such as stopping tax cuts on the wealthy, favor them.
Maybe it’s time for the Progressive/Liberal Democrats to start looking elsewhere for someone to champion their causes and to take on the President in the next primary.
I’m still hoping that President Obama might find his “campaign style” again and quit “waffling”, for the door that was heard slamming this passed November was the door on “equality,” the “disenfranchised” and the “middle class.” If not corrected, the storm that soon will engulf us will be the storm of a “cultural war.”
The Progressive/Liberal Democrat wing do have alternatives which to take on The President in the primary.
Even tho Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich seems never to be taken seriously, he still is a “voice crying in the wilderness.”
Another Ohio name that should be considered is that of Senator Sherrod Brown.
Weiner, Grayson, Kuncinich and Brown have shown courage of conviction, courage of thought and courage to stand and be counted with the people.
I’m sure that these are not the only voices that “coffee cup liberals” could find but now is the time for us to stand up and hold our ground. It is time to send a message that we hear the people too and we don’t hear the same voice that is sending us down the same path that got us into the problems we face today.
If the President won’t bring about the “Change” we voted for, then “Yes we” will find someone who “Can.”
