We fellow Democrats are about to celebrate a historical election that has the potential to see the party grow massively thanks to the 50 state strategy. Sadly in Indiana the memo has not been received.
Jill Long Thompson is a good person with a long record of public service. However, sadly her campaign is a joke and I mean an UTTER J.O.K.E! Her campaign manager, Travis Lowe, has run a campaign short on dollars and completely lacking in message. The case in point is the email that I just received. Currently Hoosiers, like the rest of the nation, are facing home foreclosures and Republican corruption. But what does Travis Lowe decide that Jill and the campaign should talk about? Well lets talk about freaking Daylight Savings Time!
Sunday morning at 2:00 a.m., Hoosiers across the state will be moving their clocks back one hour, thanks to Mitch Daniels and his one-sided decision making style. His approach to the issue of Daylight Savings Time has left too many Hoosiers in the dark.
As Governor, Jill will work for a statewide referendum on the issue of Daylight Savings Time, so that the voices of all Hoosiers can be heard. She believes that with your input, we can create a policy that better suits the needs of Indiana.
It's time to change more than our clocks. It's time to change our Governor.
Hoosiers for Jill
I mean seriously with all that the Daniels administration has done this is all you can talk about? Why not talk about how Daniel's voted down basic Mercury protection laws in Indiana? Heck there are so many real issues to talk about, but instead this campaign talks about Daylight Savings Time and Gas Tax Holidays.
I don't like calling out my fellow Dem's, but Travis Lowe and the campaign of Jill Long Thompson perfectly represent the failed old Democratic Party prior to 2006. They fail to articulate a real message of change even though it was obvious to see this was a change election. This Tuesday I will be voting for all the D's except for Jill Long Thompson. Don't worry I am not voting for the Bu$h crony Daniel's either, but I can't support that type of Democratic policy here in Indiana.
Sadly this is an issue not just confined to Indiana because Jill Long Thompson could have also really helped Barack here in Indiana, but instead she is acting as an anchor to him. Fortunately I think Obama will win the state anyway, but I think all of us D's should fight to purge the Indiana Democratic party of these soft campaigners that feel to articulate any real message to differentiate themselves from Republicans.
