Blues=Life BS: Obit: the Democratic Party (106* d) RE: Obit: the Democratic Party 06 Nov 02


I hate to say it, but for me, the Democratic Party died the moment the leadership of the party supported Clinton after he lied to the American people. I never had much problem with his having sex with some young groupie, as long as his wife didn't seem to mind. But I was deeply disturbed when he stated "I did not have sexual relations with that woman!" which was an out and out lie. I don't require my politicians to be sexually moral, but don't break your trust with ME. And then, the leadership acted like this was a fine thing, and no big deal. From what I understand, (and please correct me if I'm wrong) Wellstone was one of the few who gave Clinton a hard time about the lies. The rest missed the fact that if I can't trust you to tell me the truth, THEN I CAN'T TRUST YOU. This is a lesson I teach my kids, why is it that my party leadership doesn't know this?
Also, I think that the Republican candidates (at least where I live) came out with a vision of what they were going to do, and the Dems just used attack ads to say how awful the Repubs are. Comments like the above guest's "save us from the fascists who are now in control of business and government" turn people off. This whole demonization of anyone who dares to "disagree with ME" makes the demonizer look petty, foolish, and inconsequential. Let's throw the rascals out (current leadership) and start fresh with candidates who have a vision of their own. Vilsack for President, 2004!
