Being Liberal and a Progressive in a RED STATE is not an easy thing these days. I started this blog to vent my frustrations on our lives being taken over by right wing conservatives with their propaganda machines. I have also learned an important lesson in the last year, it is that reading is the only way to get real information, you cannot depend on the news you see on TV.

A President Like My Father

Caroline Kennedy endorses Obama:

A President Like My Father

I have never had a president who inspired me the way people tell me that my father inspired them. But for the first time, I believe I have found the man who could be that president — not just for me, but for a new generation of Americans.

Open Letter to Bill Clinton

Dear Bubba,

I have always been among those who are your most loyal fans and defenders. Through it all, up to and including Monica, I have never wavered in my loyalty and support for you and Hillary.

I am now an Obama backer, but also a Yellow Dog Democrat who would stand behind whomever is the nominee of our party. I really, really want to win this year and personally think that Barack Obama would be hard to beat. I have a twenty year old son who has known no other presidential names besides Bush and Clinton and the Dynastic concern of two last names running America for thirty years just doesn’t seem right in an American Democracy. But if Hillary was the nominee of our party, I would not have hesitated for a moment to vote for her in November.

Now I am not so sure. I have watched your vicious attacks on Barack, your angry tirades (really not befitting a former President), your supporters putting out racial overtones against him, making sure everyone knows his middle name is Hussein and that he used drugs as a teen. I am taken aback at the dirty tricks you and your wife are using in this campaign and since I didn’t follow politics in the 1990’s as I do now, have to wonder if some of what Fox News says about you has some truth to it.

All I can ask of you is to please, please, stop this nonsense. I speak for not only myself but many others who are watching this awful, horrible spectacle of a President we all loved who is using the dirty politics of the Republican Party, Karl Rove, and the talking points of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and other right leaning pundits that was aimed at you, Gore and McCain for many, many years.

If this continues, and your wife is the nominee of our party, I will not vote in November. Reading what many bloggers are saying I know that there are others out there that agree with me. Just Stop it. Let your wife win on her policies, personality and Presidential qualifications. If that is the case, she might win, if not many of us loyal Dems will refuse to vote.
