Rally round, folks. The time has come to show your favorite Conservadem here a little tough love. You know the term. It’s the would-be Republicans among our party leaders, such as Evan Bayh—and, unfortunately, Mark Warner. They say Blue Dog. We say conservadamn. It's just so pitiful that our own side is doing this. Here's a partial list: Evan Bayh (D-IN), Sen. Mark Begich (D-Alaska), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Claire McCaskill (D-MO; et tu claire!), Ben Nelson (D-NE). Other Democrats in that group include Sens. Mark Warner of Virginia, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Mark Pryor of Arkansas, Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, Robert P. Casey Jr. of Pennsylvania, and Blanche L. Lincoln of Arkansas, as well as Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.). It's been said that a few are too afraid to even go public! What kind of transparency is that? For many reasons, Virginians are a-gaga over the new Senator from Virginia. He’s that face we’ve seen, that person we’ve spoken with time and again since he first traversed the state on behalf of Dems so long ago. But here we are… Not even a hundred days in and he’s joined a faction to thwart the change we need.
We’ve tried Bush Lite for many years. We’ve tried Clinton’s “Third Way.” And none of it brought us the change we need. In fact, we’ve lost ground on nearly everything, even when Dems controlled the House and Senate since 2006. And that's given Barack Obama a massive to-do list. We elected Barack Obama with a mandate. And here we are with Conservadems obstructing universal health care, among other important issues. And the they think this is the change we need? My question to them is: Why are you hurting America?
So, enough of the senseless incrementalism. Been there, done that. We don’t need industry pandering. We are the only industrialized country in the world not offering universal health care. That's shameful. We don't need only a mandate to be enforced upon citizens, as apparently the Blue Dogs want. Call them, please. And urge them to stop obstructing Barack Obama. That means, putting our ideals on the line and making the tough call. Yes, Virginians love Mark Warner. But enough is enough. Thank you!
