The Democrats are Worthless, Sniveling Cowards

Monday, November 8, 2010

I receive a lot of email. One of the frequent questions I’m asked is why did I leave the Democratic party and become a registered Independent? Here’s a perfect example of the “why.”

The Wall Street Journal reports Democrats are ready to show their true colors on repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” in the lame duck session:

Sens. Carl Levin of Michigan and John McCain of Arizona, the top Democrat and Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, are in talks on stripping the proposed repeal and other controversial provisions from a broader defense bill, leaving the repeal with no legislative vehicle to carry it. With a repeal attached, and amid Republican complaints over the terms of the debate, the defense bill had failed to win the 60 votes needed to overcome a procedural hurdle in the Senate in September.

The Democrats including President Obama have had ample opportunity to ditch this blatantly homophobic and discriminatory policy. Mr. Obama even ran on a platform in 2008 pledging to repeal the ban. Yet, each time a Federal judge ruled DADT is unconstitutional, President Obama ran screaming to the DOJ to uphold the policy.

So here we are. The 2010 midterm elections are over and where are the Democrats when it comes to repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”? In the case of Sen. Carl Levin, the Michigan Democrat is busy working to keep the ban alive and well.

    That loud crashing sound you hear is Gay Inc. and Democrats Inc. collapsing in on themselves.

    Hopefully, when the dust settles, our so-called party leaders will wake up and realize the days of throwing loyalists under the bus just because “Democrats aren’t as bad as Republicans” is over.

    Great post, Christopher.

    The more things change, the more they remain the same.

  3. R.J. Lawson says:

    I don’t think either party has our best interests in mind. I’m seriously thinking about not voting in future elections because I’m tired of being lied to.

  4. adam says:

    The minority is what put him into office. I think we (minority) should have him removed next election.

  5. Tiny Dancer says:

    And so it begins. Cowardly Dems riding the wave of Tea Party fervor, throwing the gay community under the political bus every chance they get.

    Well, let me tell you. The Dems are going to become as rare as a winning lottery ticket in the 2012, as group after group rejects them by either voting Green, or not voting at all.

  6. Eric Equality Kuntz says:

    I stand by my decision to not vote in 2010.

    Unless changes change radically for the LGBT community in the next 24 months, I will sit out the next General Election too.

  7. Abbey Peripatetic says:

    Carl Levin is silly.

    He’s utterly out of touch with the findings of the esteemed Palm Center at the University of Santa Barbara and repealing DADT.

    I think he trying to score points with his far-right base in northern Michigan, who swing right and have a record of anti-gay bias.

  8. DMason says:

    Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign and who receives a $400,000 annual salary, promised repeal advocates DADT would be gone by the end of 2010. Huh? Someone is either lying or has his head up his ass. Maybe both?

  9. Arizona Leatherneck says:

    If DADT isn’t tossed in the lame duck, it ain’t going to happen in the next 24 months and it sure as hell won’t happen after the 2012 election because Dear Leader won’t be back for another term.

    It’s now or never. Get it done Mr. Obama or say Adios to 2012.

  10. Big Hank says:

    All I know is, as the weeks turn into months and the months into years, I am increasingly certain Obama isn’t ready for primetime.

    As for the Democrats, they have done little to support Obama’s presidency.

    They’ve been MIA the past two years.

    Servicemembers United Calls on White House to Publicly Make DADT as Top Lame Duck Priority for Administration

    “Mr. President, Either Your Administration is With Us or It’s Against Us!”

  12. VicoDANIEL says:

    The Democrats are hopeless.

    3/4rds of the American public and 70% of the military support repealing the ban. I am scratching my head in utter disbelief at Carl Levin joining DADT-lover John McCain to remove the repeal portion of the military appropriations bill.

    It’s as if the Democrats are trying to ruin any hope of their regaining the Congress for a generation.

  13. Conejo1982 says:

    They’ve better decide what the solution is going to be when it comes to adding bodies to the military because invading and occupying Yemen, Pakistan and possible Iran can’t be done with 400,000 current troops in an all-volunteer service. Empire requires staffing.

  14. Randy Arroyo says:

    Like I said on another post, I voted for Jerry Brown for governor and Barbara Boxer for senator. If things don’t change dramatically in the Obama White House, I can easily see myself staying home in 2012. My vote has value. It matters and I won’t let these Democrats take me for granted.

  15. Jolly Roger says:

    I will not cede the future to a bunch of racist homophobes by not voting, and you shouldn’t either. It’s time to start earnestly working to put a third party in a viable position.

    Or they win by fiat. F*ck that. Maybe we won’t get there overnight, but we will get there.

  16. enchantedrocker says:

    Remember when McGrumpy said he’d follow the advice of military commanders regarding DADT? Well, he’s a big, fat liar. I wish all those commanders would go to him & threaten to play a little blackmail–if he doesn’t back off, they’ll call him out at every opportunity for the hypocritical sell-out that he is. And they can tack on some Dem names now, too. Shame on them all!
