Loretta Sanchez on MSNBC. WTH is wrong with Democrats?
Edited on Wed Dec-03-08 11:27 AM by BrentTaylor
She was basically on MSNBC claiming Obama is going to have problems moving his policies with the Hispanic Caucus. If he doesn't name what they feel is enough Hispanics in his cabinet.

First of all, I was completely speechless by this. Second of all, why is it that Democrats can't wait to eat their own? And why should Obama have to name people based on their gender or race? And the nerve of a sitting congresswoman throwing out an ultimatum like that. I'm glad to see she plans to vote on policy based on what cabinet picks are made.

Also isn't this the woman who refused to support Obama unless he personally asked her?

1. I saw that and it hit me like she was aiming at quotas.
How many Hispanics to her seemed to translate to how many Hispanics MUST be in the new Obama Administration.

Hit me all wrong.

19. I totally agree and I was a Hillary primary voter........
it is really quite sad to see what has happened to Ms. Sanchez.

I lived in CA when she made her initial stunning victory against that asshat Dornan.

It was a good and new day.

That was many years ago and I think she has gotten carried away with herself.

When she said that she wasn't sure if she was going to vote for Obama or not because he hadn't PERSONALLY CALLED HER, I was still in a sour mood that Clinton had lost.....but hearing this drivel from her was a seminal moment for me.....I found her so ridiculous and so arrogant and so petty.....did she call EVERY SINGLE VOTER THAT HAS VOTED FOR HER?????....

So, basically, thanks Ms. Sanchez, your shrill ridiculouness turned me over night into a ardent champion of Barack Obama.

24. Please make sure you qualify that with the correct Sanchez
Loretta Sanchez is fucking nuts - she proved that during the Convention when she kept vying for airtime to claim that she still wasn't going to support Obama even after Hillary gave that great speech at the convention.

However, Linda Sanchez is amazing. She was always a supporter of Obama and definately a great democrat (she has always been a democrat whereas Loretta started out in politics as a republican first).

So when I see a statement 'Ms Sanchez is fucking nuts' I kinda want to point out that we should just say Loretta Sanchez since Ms Sanchez could refer to either of the Sanchez sisters in congress. I think Linda is going to have a strong future in the democrat party but Loretta is going to fade to obscurity. Loretta has taken the gun and shot herself in the foot and then blames everyone else for it other than herself.

37. No kidding! They are so different!
Linda lives in my neighborhood, our dogs are park chums:) She is wonderful, and I hope people realize what a hard working Democrat she is and don't confuse her with her confused sibling.

As an aside, they lost a brother recently... my heart goes out to both of them. The holidays must be tough this year.

39. I read where Linda is expecting in May 2009?
Is that true - tell her congratulations and you can let her know that all of DU adores here :D

40. We try to keep the chat at dog level...
But we've let her know how much we appreciate her. I'll mention DU though, that would be cool.

You know, she is one of the few politicians who answers email... or at least has someone answer for her... she's on my list for kudos. I email kudos when good things are done more often than I complain. Someone has to do it:)

41. Joe Biden always responded back to emails I sent on specific matters
well someone from his office would. But then again Delaware is probably about the same size as a congressional district so it's a bit easier to do for Biden.

She's the batshit crazy sister. In another century, she'd be the

Alienating your national party leadership may not be the best way to guarantee their support for you when the time comes Loretta:eyes:

6. She has some nerve considering how she acted during the Primaries.
She can take her political extortion and shove it! If Obama does right for all Americans, I beleive he will mantain his popularity with Hispanics.

8. I saw that! It was strange.
Edited on Wed Dec-03-08 11:53 AM by ErinBerin84
heh....I had to laugh that her first suggestion for a post was her sister! But besides that, she definitely had a threatening tone in her voice that I thought was really inappropriate. And MSNBC is using that to really push the "Hispanics are pissed at Obama and the Richardson post is a step down". Thank god they had Maria Teresa on with Andrea to set her straight a little.

Obama supporter.

10. I never saw her actually back Obama. She griped and groused
about him and then just disappeared from the stage. I'd like it if somebody could point to her finally endorsing him because it would be comforting to think she still had one active brain cell left.

21. Seriously - Linda Sanchez totally rocks!!
She was behind Obama from the git-go while Loretta was out there whining for TV time.

And although Loretta was in congress first, in the next 2 years you'll see Linda move ahead politically because Linda wants to work with Team Obama to get things done.

...and apparently still has not been able to find it. Get back home, Loretta.

17. Obama should just tell them to kiss his magnificent chocolate ass.
He won. He's got massive majorities in both houses of Congress. Rarely does a President get this kind of opportunity.

23. HER - not them
Linda Sanchez has been a major Obama supporter.

Also, reading in Wiki, Loretta started as a republican but switched to democrat whereas Linda has always been a democrat.

Do not lump the sane Sanchez sister in with the crazy one.

27. I have been critical of Loretta ever since she said that Obama needed to call her on the phone
and meet with her to ask for her endorsement while looking at his eyes. She is crazy and that was proven in the primaries. We, the Hispanics are quite happy and propud to have supported and continue to support Obama.

29. Good for her...
I think there's an equation for this where you can calculate how may cabinet positions need to be filled based on one's genetic and/or ancestral makeup.

I can't quite recall, but it involves...

The percentage of that population that in the US, the percentage that voted, the percentage that you received, the percentage of that population's representation in congress, the positions appointed (ranked by line of succession so a Sec. of State is worth more than Veterans Affairs, but a Sec. Defense and Treasury is worth more than a SOS), and Pi.

Based on his current appointments, I'm not sure where he's going to get a 1/4 Inuit, 1/2 Chinese American, 1/4 Huguenot Hud Secretary.

Either that, or he could just try and get the best available people.
