I wanted to thank you for for taking Americans for granted.
I wanted to thank you for using the White House to help your corparatist friends.
I wanted to thank you for trying to make up for your weaknesses by invading Iraq.
I wanted to thank you for trying to deliver more oil fields to the Big Oil companies.
I wanted to thank you for not taking the time to read the Constitution.
I wanted to thank you for destroying the Republican party.
I wanted to thank you for inspiring Barack Obama to run for office to undo the mess you have created.
More importantly - I wanted to thank you for being such a bad President which will lead to today's landslide victory for Senator Barack Obama and Joe Biden.
Thank you sir. I will never forget your impact to our great Country. No one will.
Mr. Perez, Northern Virginia

Colin Powell just endorsed Barack Obama on Meet the Press this morning. He sighted several reasons for his choice. Some pro-Obama but most anti-McCain/Palin.
- Narrowed Focus of McCain Campaign
- Negative Campaigning
- Sarah Palin
In 1995 I founded the unofficial www.Powell96.org web site in an attempt to get Colin Powell to run for President. Before he made his decision not to run, I registered 35,000 volunteers across the country who were ready to help him in his campaign. I even had a chance to meet him in person where he thanked me for my efforts to get him elected. It was a great time for America.
While I still have an incredible amount of respect for Powell, I wish he'd done a better job during the run up to the Iraqi War. We all know he was against it but he couldn't break away from the Bush/Reagan doctrine.
I would love to hear how the country reacts.

Watch this 3 minute long video:
I guess God decided. If you believe in God, perhaps you have this guy and his prayer to thank for Gustav. How can any true Christian or religious person wish something bad to happen to other people.
Now the Republicans have lost one day or more of there convention and will have to compete with post-Gustav coverage over the next 2-3 days. Come to think of it, with the selection of Palin as him mate, I mean, running mate, Gustav might be a good thing after all.
Again, I guess God picked who he wants to win this time around. By the way where is this loser praying for Gustav to dissipate being hitting land in New Orleans.
By the way, I was a delegate for a major battleground state and it was a lovely day every day throughout of the Democratic Convention.

I am working on getting further details but all the networks are reporting that Obama and Clinton will do a joint campaign rally next Friday. What great news! I can't wait to see them together on the same stage and on the same team.
I am taking bets as to where they will campaign. See the poll below.

How can Pelosi and Reid be so weak? Call your Congressman right now! They are about to pass another Bush War Funding bill which includes a FISA provision that will give telecommunications companies immunity from lawsuits. Do the Democrats know that Bush has a 29% approval rating and that only 17% of Americans feel we are on the wrong track?
More to follow as I get more details.

For anyone in the Northern Virginia 10th Congressional District, look up Mike Turner (D-VA10). Mike is a progressive 27+ year Air Force veteran that was the first candidate to endorse Barack Obama. Now, I hope some of you don't hold that against him. He said what he felt when he didn't have to endorse anyone at all. He's very principled and I feel he can depose Frank Wolf (R) in this district which has been Red for over 27 years - all Wolf.
Mike will be going up against Judy Feder at the June 10th Democratic Primary and needs you support to get to the GE in November.

Barack Obama will be holding a huge rally at the Nissan Pavilion in Northen Virginia. This facility holds 25,000. I expect a huge kickoff for a state that will go BLUE in November.
If you live in the 10th Congressional District in Northern Virgnia, please vote on June 10th. We have a strong candidate running in the Democratic primary - Mike Turner.
Mike can beat Republican Frank Wolf who's been in service for 27 years and is very disconnected from the process.

On the rail this morning, I overheard someone making an analogy that to me was dead on. Please, no troll ratings. I have been trying to bring unity to the party but I need to share this analogy for those of you that see nothing wrong with what's going on right now.
Even though Hillary Clinton received more votes than Obama in Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, Barack Obama has not yet conceded those elections. Until he does, Hillary is not the winner of those states.
Obama to concede for the results to become official.
Now, HRC is using the same strategy to keep the campaign going. Even though, Barack has won the nomination, it is not official until Hillary Clinton makes it so.
Go to YouTube and search for "Young Hillary Clinton" and watch the "Connect Four" section. It is happening right now.
Why are some of us pretending to live in an alternative universe?
Both Hillary and Obam gave great speeches at AIPAC today. Obama's speech was especially well received with several and continuous applause coming from those in attendance. They both did a great job at making strong and positive comments about each other but Hillary is still talking like a candidate for the nomination.
Is this good for the party or for Hillary? I'm conflicted.
