DEAR DU PROGRESSIVES: I'm insensed that I did NOT get the memo. Who the HELL is in charge here?

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by bluesbassman (a host of the General Discussion forum).

Had it not been for DU's Third Wayers sending out the Bat Signal alerting DU's Democratic Party Faithful that apparently, all of DU's progressives have signed on to the Ron Paul for President campaign I would have never known! I just want to know, where the HELL is my memo? Do we need to overhaul the mail room, the data processing methods, what? Come on, people, get your act together! I mean, if I was missed that means others, maybe thousands of us of us have not yet been informed that we must now align with the right-wing Libertarians.

3. Don't worry, just a false alarm.

They can't read well, so are interpreting warnings about Paul's danger with a soundbite-driven electorate as being 'support' for Paul.

The reality is that ceding the 'populist' mantle to a Republican while running a Wall Street candidate is a really bad idea.

It's never fun being Cassandra.

12. Funny ...

 

Who, exactly, is terming paul's dreck "Populist" and/or "progressive."

I mostly see it from the "corporatist" media and DU progressives. Don't you think that strange?

17. Don't I think what's strange?

The corporate media is what most Americans are going to base their votes on.

NOTHING Paul does is 'progressive'. Anything he does that seems 'left' is coming from some bizarre RW reasoning that has nothing to do with reality, and merely coincidentally coincides with positions that actually are left.

The man is a nightmare who would kill off a fifth of the American population by destroying the social safety net.

That doesn't mean we shouldn't point out that he's trying to grab the 'populist mantle' for his political ambitions. And that that's electorally dangerous, especially if he wins and is put up against a Dem candidate with strong wall street ties.

4. The Third-Wayers have been screeching about Paul since they arrived

Confusing, to say the least, since no one on DU gave a shit about the Paul's before.

Now they want to claim anyone to the left of right-of-center Hillary is a Paul fanboy. I'd blame it on their reading comprehension, but they can read just fine, they are simply choosing to misinterpret anything even slightly critical of Hillary so that they can smear progressives.

9. Hillary has a Senate record so you can't just lie about her without being obvious.

In her years there she was consistently among the most progressive in the Senate. She's not right of center in the US -- she's among the more liberal.

15. As a board member of Walmart and a Iraq war voter should be, right?

 



Oh, and then there was the whole PATRIOT Act POS.

Sounds like someone needs to look up the definition of "consistent" and "progressive."

16. Her voting record speaks for itself. She has apologized for her Iraq vote, which was based

on trusting Bush to abide by the restrictions in the IWR that were meant to stop him from going in unless they found weapons of mass destruction. Yes, that was a major mistake.

But her record is as a solid progressive.

6. They're just setting some ground work to lay blame...


after their candidate tries to run to the right of THE freaking randroid and gets their ass handed to them.

Besides, you don't need to get the memo because the pattern is the same as every year:

If you disagree with the Third Wayers, six months of the year your a rightie libertarian troll and six months of the year you are a traitorous naderite fringe leftist.

Twelve months of the year they sound like silly goofballs but you do get in trouble for pointing that out.

10. The Only Memo

I want to read is the one exposing Rand Pauls bs. "They" have studied us (our psychology) long and hard-they did a "trial run" of messaging in 2010 and '12--they think they've got it down now-This Art of Saying What The Sheep Want to Hear.
We've played this game before and lost. It is up to the Paul Supporters to explain And Prove how and why "this time is different".
I'm sure as hell Not interested enough to go looking for it.
