Do-Over? Blow me, DNC!

Democratic National Party is a jokeThe DNC should stand for Does Not Comprehend.
They are considering ‘allowing’ a do-over of the primaries for Florida and Michigan?

Allowing a do-over.

Allowing.

WTF?!? Am I a child? Since when do we call Mulligans on a primary?
So, I sent the following to the DNC this morning:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The decision to strip Florida and Michigan of their delegates for holding their primaries too early is one that, I believe, will go down as an historic error in judgment on the part of the Democractic Party.

 I live in Palm Beach County, Florida and, like many other Democrats here, I live with the knowledge that my government has stifled my vote, my choice and my voice in the last two presidential elections. I thought 2008 would be different. We all did. 

It should have been different and could have been different and the most disconcerting aspect of this primary season is that the decision to take away our voice, our say, our contribution was not made on the federal level (by courts or attorneys for courts or whatnot).

No, the decision to tell me — a Democrat, who has worked, organized and canvassed on behalf of Democrats the past eight years – that the vote I cast in my state’s primary does not count was made by my own party.

The Democratic Party took away my vote and that of millions of others. And now you want to ‘allow’ us to do it all over again?

Shame on you for being so clearly out of touch with your electorate that you do not even realize this ill-conceived attempt to slap the hands of your children associations will probably result in another GOP victory come November. 

You are having an organizational struggle with your children organizations. Handle your business internally through the appropriate organizational channels. Do not force me to pay a price and have my vote nullified because you cannot manage your organization. 

We have been told in very clear terms that our votes do not matter. Why do you assume the same massive voter turnout (remember, this year was supposed to be different) will happen again after you’ve told us that the first one didn’t count? Florida may be the lightning-strike capital of the country, but it is unwise to count on that same bolt of voter enthusiasm to happen twice. 

We have voted. We made our statement. That statement should stand.


fuckers …

    THank you. I agree. They should count our votes.

    You knew that the vote wouldn’t count when you made it. Only a Democrat would see some kind of fairness in counting votes that were clearly stated wouldn’t count at the expense of another candidate that, unlike Hitlery Clinton, followed the rules and didn’t campaign (or even have a name on the ballot in one of the states). GEEZ, get over your

    Well said.

    It will be ironic that the Clintons, while being the only candidate actively “fund raising” in Florida, will be pleading for “healing” at the convention in a gesture that will have the Florida and Michigan delegates restored to good standing.

    The big complaint I keep hearing it that the people of FL and MI deserve to have their voices heard. Damn straight they do AND they actually have. The democratic voters in both those states elected people to represent their interests who saw fit to ignore the rules of the national nominating process. The voters of FL and MI should have their say. They did and will. The next time they vote they ought to vote for people other than the knuckleheads that decided to disenfranchises them

    Do any of the America people remember…….Franklin Pierce?
    In 1852…the Democratic Convention balloted 48 times and said to the well-known candidates….. take a hike and out of the blue sky they all pick Pierce, a horse of rainbow colors.”
    So! with what the American people have to choose from 156 years late……where is the dang horse!

    This is all a republican trick. Why isn’t anyone moving to recall the republican governor?

    […] all, when it’s time to vote (except in Michigan and Florida where Democrats don’t count) we’re just going to go with the one who said that thing that time about how gas prices really […]
