  •  When the corporate Democratic Party (1+ / 0-)

    establishment loses, the rank-and-file Democratic Party voter wins. Where you been the past 18 monthns as they've repeatedly sold us out? Have you paid any attention at all? Heard anyhing recently about EFCA? No, and you won't either. How'd you like the president's endorsing the Rhode Island firings of a public school's entire staff of union teachers? You okay with that? You on board with Obama making RW Republican Alan Simpson a chair of his anti-Medicare and anti-Social Security "deficit commission?" You like the president cozying up to billionaire Pete Peterson and his safety-net shredding campaign? You like the Dem Party's continuing rightward drift? Wake up, idiot. The national Dem Party has become anti-union, anti-worker, anti-progressive, and pro-sucking up to Big Money. Speaking of money, as of a couple days ago, Burr had $5,000,000 in campaign funds. Marshall? She had $200,000. You say you want to beat Burr? Put your money where your big mouth is. Send her some.

    Here's a little background on President Obama's pal, Pete Peterson. You may find it educational. You may not. Read it anyway.

    "Billionaires for Social Insecurity" Gather at Pete Peterson Event.
    Today, Peter Peterson and his foundation convened a closed-door meeting of Wall Street billionaires and millionaires at the Ronald Reagan International Trade Building in D.C.  

    Peterson is a former CEO of Lehman Brothers and former chair of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. He underwrites the foundation with his own money, and his agenda is not a secret.

    Peterson says the coming retirement of baby boomers is a threat to the economy and the federal budget. He wants to see significant cuts in Social Security and Medicare benefits, and would prefer a stream-lined process via a commission to implement these changes to "reduce the deficit."
