It was only a matter of time! The Dems, especially here in NH, have been calling we who hew to the US and NH Constitutions (and less, the R party platform) “extremists”
Sidenote: Again, when did complying with, and using them as a perfectly good standard of quality become extremist? Oh yeah, when the Dems (and Establishment Repubs) didn’t want you to think “is this Constitutional and the Proper Role of Government?”
for quite some time. They also have “complained” about the lack of bipartisanship from Republicans, as we “extremists” primary out “the moderates” from working with those self-same Democrats (er, WHERE does that Overton Window now sit – closer to ideals of socialism or to the ideals the Founding Fathers?). But what they don’t want to talk about is that they’ve been doing the same. Ask yourself – how many “Blue Dog” Dems are still left on the national stage (er, that would be moderates on the Democrat side)? Well guess what the Smarmy Side is about to do:
The nonprofit advocacy group backing President Obama’s second-term agenda plans to mobilize constituents against the U.S. senators who on Wednesday helped defeat a measure to expand background checks – including four members of the president’s own party.
Jon Carson, executive director of Organizing for Action, told the Los Angeles Times / Tribune Washington Bureau on Thursday that the group will train its resources against the 45 senators who opposed the legislation, including Democrats Max Baucus of Montana, Mark Begich of Alaska, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Mark Pryor of Arkansas.
“What is happening right now is the reason that OFA needs to be here: to harness the energy and determination of people,” Carson said. “I think everyone would agree that the American people are on our side on this…. We need to show that the 90% on our side have staying power.”
“This is one of those moments where we have to prove that in the face of a setback we’re not backing down,” he added. “That’s the calculation that some senators were mistaken on…. The consequences they’re going to have to face are a bunch of angry constituents who are going to keep the issue alive.”
Nice to see that Obama has decided to wage war against his own Party. Is there really a difference here – is this the action of a spiteful Community Organizer or a vengeful Chicago Machine pol? Oh, that 90% state Carson through out? Perhaps he needs a different pollster?
