Barack Obama has been dethroned. Barack Obama is no longer the King of Chicanery, the Corrupt King of Clowns, the King Liar Extraordinaire. That filthy toilet bowl throne now belongs, perhaps always belonged, to Ruy Teixiera.
For over a decade Teixiera and other idiots who style themselves as “intellectuals” or “strategists” or the “creative class” sold a deadly snake oil. This poison was purchased and drunk by people such as 2×4 Chuck Schumer, tax cheat Tom Daschle, and Chappaquiddick Chauffeur Ted Kennedy. The result is that in 2008 what was the Democratic Party establishment plotted then gifted Barack Obama the Democratic Party nomination.
The Teixiera snake oil is a theory of endless Democratic electoral victories because of demographic “realities” such as a declining white population in the United States. For years we have written (in our Mistake In ‘08 series HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE as well as in our “Barack Obama’s Situation Comedy” demographics series) about the deadly effect the Teixiera draught has had on the Democratic Party.
In short, the Democratic Party committed suicide when it dumped the FDR Coalition led by Hillary Clinton in favor of the Barack Obama Situation Comedy coalition.I am so sick of the ones who did the damage thinking they still have some authority with which to speak. Ruby Teixiera was a quack and that was obvious in 2008. But here he is still being allowed to speak.
I hope you will refuse to vote for Barack in 2012. I hope we can send a message to the party honchos that we believe in public financing for elections, that we believe in equality, that we reject sexism and homophobia.
If we can do that, we stand a chance of reclaiming the Democratic Party and Democratic values. We are not a party that believes in torture or endless war.
I'm a big Sade fan and that's from her Facebook page so I thought I'd put it up here.
She's touring this summer. And she's always worth catching live. I'm not high on John Legend (who's become less interesting to me with each passing year) but I am going to see her concert and that's not something I generally have time to do. (Granted, I did promise my oldest he could go. And if either or both of the other kids want to go, they can as well. Jess said he'd go with as well so it may turn into a real fun evening.)
