Of course those words did use those words, but they allowed the charges to fester. They failed to lift a finger. Jesse Jackson, on the other hand, defended the Clintons while still advocating Obama. I suppose that distinction is lost on you?
It isn't a question of if it is true that they actually speak for millions of people, but if their threats had an impact on the supers. If you can't read beyond the written/spoken words than how can you begin to understand politics? You don't buy that the "warnings" were actually "threats"?
Of course, you can choose to believe what you wish. But, if you don't understand the clout of Rep. Clyburn and Donna Brazile as voices for African Americans then you don't understand the Democratic party and surely don't understand African American politics.
Perhaps you were asleep during the last few months, but yes they claimed to we, African Americans, would revolt if the supers did not follow the pledged delegates. Again, you are more than welcome to use the services of google. I think it is available to anyone with the internets. :-)
And what does that have to do with the fact that they abandoned her in the primary and suggested that the Clintons were racists or used racists tactics while ignoring Obama's transgressions? Or the fact that Donna Brazile and Rep. Clyburn pretty much threatened that Blacks would stay home if your guy wasn't the nominee?
Another thing we can do for unity is to get rid of Donna Brazile. That would go a long way towards my personal unity. Every time I have to see her it makes my blood boil.
is what is wanted then more needs to be done than to simply try to rally against the Republican machine that we have warned you all about for over a year now. The DNC needs reform, the primary process needs reform and the media needs to pay a price for their bias. The Obama followers can start with the media.
Join us in boycotting Keith Olbermann for beginners. Tweety is too easy.
These things happen to be true. So, what are you going to do about it is the question? Are we suppose to ignore these facts just b/c Republicans are speaking them? Many of us have been making the same arguments for months now. Obama didn't lift a finger to combat these problems then and I'm not lifting a finger to smooth it over now.
