I'm just kidding of course. What I'm really speaking of are the BLUE DOG DEMOCRATS. If you've never heard of these before, check out their website. They are a rare and unique group of politically elected representatives that call themselves "democrat" but are fiscally conservative according to their website. I'm not sure such a beast really exists but like "bigfoot" we've seen video and photos over the years but we've never seen living proof of one!
Steve Elliot of Grassfire.org said, "First, like an angry "father", he[President Obama] took Democrat Blue Dogs to the woodshed at a White House closed door meeting. To no one's surprise, they emerged over two hours later having "struck a deal" behind closed doors that is even WORSE..." First of all, I didn't know the White House had a woodshed, I thought they were modernized with electric heat, running water and indoor toilets. It's ashame that President Obama thinks it necessary to go to a woodshed and beat a bunch of dogs!
This reminds me of a story a man who said his father used to beat him like he did his dog but it made him angry and hard hearted as an adult and that it affected him greatly. He further went on to say that his father was using intimidation and force to get what he wanted. I wonder if this is the tactic our president is using - intimadation and force? Look at the language the lead Blue Dog-Mike Ross (AR) said on July 7, 2009. (pdf file) and compare it to the one after his group met with President Obama on July 22, 2009. (pdf file) Do you see the difference? The language in the earlier one sounds like they enjoy the bounty of a free market choice system and that they actually believe it is the way to go. The language in the later one appears to be one that says, I give. ObamaCare is the way to go. Let us only hope it's not too late for these BLUE DOGS and they have a come to Jesus meeting with Jesus at the woodshed and not go along with the woodshed beating of Obama before the vote. What is at stake is our country! The Blue Dogs, if they really exist, may become extinct in 2010 and 2012!!
CALL, WRITE and EMAIL these BLUE DOGS and tell them you are onto them and that THEY WILL BE VOTED OUT in the next election cycle. HERE'S the link to contacting the ELUSIVE Blue Dog Democrats!
What do you think? Do you think that the blue dog coalition exist for a time such as this?
