8. The man is a PUB, need I say more?
They will say all it takes to win, then refuse to help the Common People....look at their Horrid Record re this issue.

Pubs are frauds claiming to care for us...

Do not trust this man..

Look for the larger Picture

Pubs ARE BAD NEWS

9. what on earth are you talking about?
Does PUB mean Republican?

Tasini is a progressive, anti-war Democrat challenging Hillary Clinton in the NY primary because of her vote for and continued support of the war. He is a writer and a union organizer. Did you watch any of the videos?

11. OK I fucked up, thought he was a Pub
Nevertheless, he is single issue and has no real solutions I know of re the Nations State of Affairs other than anti war.

Takes a lot more than that.
Sorry for the mix up. My bad.

12. Again, why do you spout off before you know what you're talking about?
He discusses several issues just in the videos I posted in the OP.

14. Well I hope you're enjoying the war she voted for and supports
I hope you're in favor of the death penalty and NAFTA and discrimination against same-sex couples. I hope you think it's fine to take money from Rupert Murdoch.

Search my posts. I support the progressive anti-war candidate. We still have primary elections in this country.

Come, we fish for mahi when the sun rises.

19. Stephanie
is one of the most dedicated, sincere, and intelligent progressive democrats on DU .... or in the country, for that matter. On a scale of 1 to 100, I give her at least a 110. The extra credit is a result of her investing of herself in the effort to end the war in Iraq.

20. Hi Steph. I also been here for years...like 5. With all due respect:
I also think the divide and conquer technique used by the Pubs is an ongoing thing we Dems should be wary of.

Carl Sheeler (8%) is an excellent point. Comes across as a decent enough fella but when checked out...he was once a Pub, then an Indy, and now a DEM. And, he is running for the US Senate seat in Rhode Island against Whitehouse. In these last 4 months, I found Sheeler to be shallow and evasive...and I refuse to help him...in fact I share my feelings against him with others. I feel he is either a Pub Mole and/or a Senate Wannabe.

Since Joes defeat a few days ago...and I supported Lamont, still do....it has become apparent there are deep moles aboard our Dem Train....him being one of them. He has been sucking ass with them Pubs and he has paid a price....But look what happened...Joe has a chance to win via the Indy route and we lose a Senate Seat. But the Price was worth it in my book. Joe confirms our outting him by going Indy and the Pubs coming out of the wood work to assist him. Nevertheless, we also weaken ourselves in the process.

With Jonathan Tasini...he has a checkered past. There are a whole bunch of peeps who think his leadership style sucks. I see nothing to suggest he would do NY Proud. He is a writer. He is anti war. What else? a few points here and there...what else? Folks who run for this High Seat...should have some kind of previous experience....usually on the State level or in the US HOUSE. Unless one is a Swartnegger...most wannabe's lose.

I'm sorry if I offended you but I am on high alert for any actions that result in DIVIDING us DEMs....in this case, imho...needlessly.

In my book, Hillary has shown to be a person who cares for the Common Folk. Her overall record indicates this. She had voted for the war but so did many others including all of the Pubs and the current Admins.

I feel this Tasini is really not in the best interest of the Dem Party.

Come, we go eat, drink, laugh, smile, surf, golf, and cry for this Nation we all love so much.

21. What are you talking about?
A minute ago you thought he was a republican, how you have some kind of secret info about his checkered past? Give me a break.

Why don't you read his bio and his positions before you judge. Read some of his blog posts. He is one of us. He is a union organizer and an activist. He is a progressive Democrat, not a corporate Democrat.

23. So you're just basically slandering Tasini and making things up.
"With Jonathan Tasini...he has a checkered past. There are a whole bunch of peeps who think his leadership style sucks."

Please DO release the details of Jonathan Tasini's so-called "checkered past". And who are these people who think his "leadership style sucks"? I mean other than people like yourself who lend blind support to Hillary Clinton. And yes, I said BLIND support, not just support. Supporting a candidate is fine. Blind adoration of a public figure is idiocy at its worst.

Since you just figured out that Tasini isn't a "pub" a few posts back, I seriously doubt you have any "inside dirt" on Tasini. And if you want a dirty laundry contest between the two candidates, I'll put my money on Jonathan every time.

The man was a union president for 13 years. As a NYer Tasini did more for me BEFORE he even ran, than Hillary has done her entire time in office. As far as I can tell, the man is honest, hardworking, intelligent, and exactly what we need to turn this country around.

Why do you need to resort to dirty politics and slander to support your candidate? Why not just debate the issues?

17. Using Lieberman's rhetoric at Tasini
The growing movement to hold Democrats to account for what they vote for -- does it scare the Hilary supporters? She has little chance of losing, but she deserves all the bad press she can get so maybe she'll eventually be replaced by someone who won't abandon their voters for lobbyists and Rupert Murdoch.
