… remember this?

This story from NOW!Hampshire brings NH’s own Democrat attack machine, Kathy Sullivan, to the fore:

Source: State Dems scrambling to deploy tea party ‘crashers’

New Hampshire Democrats are engaged in a statewide search for liberal activists willing to attend so-called tea parties on Thursday and carry signs expressing racists or fringe sentiments, a Democratic source with knowledge of the effort tells
According to the source, who sought anonymity for fear of reprisals, the Dems’ last minute scramble reflects a growing obsession among party leaders that they need to discredit the tea party movement soon or it will overwhelm them come the November election.
Former Democratic State Party Chairman Kathy Sullivan is heading up the search, the source said. Sullivan has been calling and e-mailing liberal activists trying to get them to attend tea parties in different parts of the state and hold signs denying the authenticity of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate and make racially disparaging comments to reporters.
“This is Kathy’s [Sullivan] project,” the source told “She is absolutely obsessed with painting the tea party people as racists.”

Well, MAJOR backpedaling ensued – major, major, major.

 Sullivan not only said that she had not called for progressives to storm tomorrow’s tea party rallies, she also condemned the idea of anyone trying to distupt a tea party rally as undemocratic.

…Brunnelle [Executive Director, NH Democrat Party  -Skip] said that the state party wasn’t sending anyone — infiltrator or otherwise — to the tea party rallies in New Hampshire tomorrow and suggested the party was steering clear of the whole event. He said that Now Hampshire’s reporting saying otherwise was "absolutely not true."

So what does that have to do with anything?

Who is this?

Same guy I pointed out in the top picture. 

"SO", you say?

Er, he’s Tim Arsenault (son of Beth Arsenault, Dem NH House Rep from Laconia). 

"Yeah, still – so?"

He’s the Head Honcho for New Hampshire for Organizing for America.


"suggested the party was steering clear of the whole event."

Right.  Now, did the State Party send him?  Only they know – not me.  Doesn’t look good, does it?

Now, any problems?  Nope, and none imputed in any fashion.  But certainly doesn’t look good for a head honcho in the Dem Party to say one thing and find another one where the first said that there wouldn’t be any…..

A case of "they weren’t going before they did?"
