Daley Machine Tells Obama To Fake It

William Daley wrote an Op-Ed piece for the Washington Post and in it he tells Obama that the decision of some Democrats to retire rather than run for reelection as well as the defection of Parker Griffith spells trouble for the left going into next year’s election. Daley’s suggestion is that Democrats plot a more moderate and centrist course.

Daley laments that many Democrats won seats in traditional Republican strongholds because they are moderates, or Blue Dogs as they are called, and that they risk losing because they have had to support the more radical elements of the party in Congress. Anyone with a little political sense knows that Pelosi will try to protect the moderates by allowing them to vote against unpopular legislation as long as she has the votes for it to pass. However, when push comes to shove and she needs the votes she expects them to vote lockstep with the party.

This sets up problems and shows why there is no such thing as a true Blue Dog. When it gets down to brass tacks the so called Blue Dogs vote party over conscience. It might take a good bribe but it always happens. It is very unlikely that the citizens in the traditional Republican strongholds who are now represented by Democrats want the health care bill, cap and trade or the stimulus but in many cases they have representatives who support those items.

Daley’s solution is for the Democrats to put up a moderate and centrist front but this is all smoke and mirrors. How many people believe that any of these people who get reelected acting as moderates will actually be moderate when votes are needed and the leadership is applying pressure? Barack Obama ran as a person who would be transparent, ethical, moderate and bipartisan. In essence, he appeared to be rather moderate. This fooled a lot of people who failed to pay attention to his radical past. Now we are seeing him as the far left radical, Chicago politician that some of us saw despite the whole hope and change mantra.

If the left moves to the center and works as moderates many of them might be reelected by those with short memories but make no mistake, they will not remain moderate after they are elected. You folks in conservative America need to look at the Democrats representing you and see if they truly stayed moderate after they won or if they fell in line behind the radical liberal agenda. Don’t be fooled by those who vote for something and then against it when the votes are secured. Don’t be fooled by those who are allowed to vote a certain way under the cover provided by Pelosi. You need to actually look at them and what they are doing. If they voted for the things you do not want and did so under pressure then they are playing a game and it is not likely they will change should they win reelection.

When it comes down to it the so called Blue Dogs vote party over constituent and party over country so keep this in mind should they run around begging for your vote and your money while telling you how they had your best interests at heart.

Daley wants the Democrats to put on a ruse in order to avoid a real problem in the next election. His plea for Obama to take on a centrist agenda has nothing to do with really being centrist or running the country as a centrist. It is a political ploy designed to keep Democrats in power so that once the election is over they can continue the radical agenda set forth by Obama, Pelosi, and Reid.

Vote them all out and put people in who will be concerned with your interests and not the interests of the party.

And if that person turns out to be bad replace him as well.

We The People own this country and it is time we started acting like it.
