Union workers are not the only ones betrayed by their leadership. We’ve discussed before how Women, Gays, and Jews have also been betrayed by their “leadership”. African-Americans too have been betrayed or used by their “leaders”. [So debased is the African-American leadership and their protection of Barack Obama that it sometimes appears to be the case that the great African-American leader of the year is George Will - who quotes Nathan Glazer as saying "the election of Barack Obama 'coincided with the almost complete disappearance from American public life of discussion of the black condition...'"
The White Working Class was only the first to be dumped:
Donna Brazile and David Axelrod described the Barack Obama base as:
A new Democratic coalition is younger. It is more urban, as well as suburban, and we don’t have to just rely on white blue-collar voters and Hispanics.
Axelrod has declared The white working class has gone to the Republican nominee for many elections, going back even to the Clinton years. This is not new that Democratic candidates don’t rely solely on those votes.
Gays, Jews, blacks, seniors, women, men - we're all the White Working Class now. While Obama vacations and redecorates ("The recession redo, paid for by the nonprofit White House Historical Association, was the latest tone-deaf move by a White House that was supposed to excel at connection and communication. Message: I care, but not enough to stop the fancy vacations and posh renovations") the American people find themselves without advocates on the Left. That's why the wave.Donna Brazile should be kicked out of any Dem Party office. She's done more damage than anyone could imagine. I would never believe anyone could be so damaging but America's least liked gas bag, the closeted Donna Brazile has done more to harm the Democratic Party than any Republican ever could.
I don't understand how the woman who more than helped lose the 2000 election and put Bush into office is still around in the Democratic Party. They should have run Donna Brazile out of town immediately after that.
Instead she's treated as some wise elder when nothing in her life has ever demonstrated wisdom.
I'm voting Green in November. Dems kicked us all to the curb as they tried to make a 'new' party without us. It's time to send those assholes a message and the best way for me to do that is to vote straight ticket, Green Party.
