Reply to "Prez Obama: Democratic Voter Apathy Inexcusable, VP Biden tells Dems to Stop Whining"

Quote by ER: "I have no qualms with that criticism.  BUT ... the fact is, the so-called "Democratic base" is and has always been a lethargic, sit-back-and-complain-but-do-nothing-to-help-THEMSELVES constituency!!!  Yes, the President owes some markers, especially to those who 'went the extra mile' to make sure he was elected ... but, since then, what have they/we done to feather our own political nest??? "



ER, I agree, that word "lethargic" is like a 1000 pound ball & chain dead weight around the neck of Democrats when it comes to being consistant in the continuation of staying motivated and involved in politics, especially state and local and IMO, it  seems that the Democratic leadership should have known  or kept abreast of this reality about it's base.........people came out of the woodwork to get this done...even drug dealers & criminals registered & voted for Barack Obama.....the excitement and hard work of  all races to elect of President Obama was likened to a "rise of the Phoenix" phenomeon unlike anything anyone else had seen before in the history of American politics.


It reset the bar & totally chnged the American campaign process (and probably world politics for that matter) and if this phenomeon is similair to a one time world event that shook up the "good ole' boy" establishment and if you want to continue "ridin' that ride" then you have to ensure that those voters, who you know are, for a lack of better words, "fundamentally & politically lazy and disengaged" are always constantly engaged and informed 24/7, despite all the negative noises from the Repub party. As utterly shocked, deflated, dissapointed and defeated as the day Obama won, they should have in some form or fashion, remained road kill (or on critical life support) with a left wing systematic plan of attack equal to or greater than the right wing bullshyt they concocted in order to try and take back power...all bets are off with these idiots and a chosen theme for the Dems?...they were in control for 8 years and had argubly the worst President in American history George W. Bush as their leader....and look what happened......what more do you need to say?



That's where I have issues with the Whiite House and the Dem leadership. SOMEBODY (and I was hoping that Prez had somebody in his circle with "African American" acute and common sense eyes and ears to the ground, (that's why selecting the right people with certain skills sets, instead of friends & supporters who you are comfortable with are so important) should have been paying strict attention to this deflation of  the base motivation and keep tellin' the Prez on the regular that despite all that we have to do to turn this sinking ship around, that motivation and excitement that got us here not only has to be nourished & watered by our deeds but by keeping the spirit and energy and it's power running through the veins of our base daily.............they got off their asses en masse across the board (that has never happened before) to get you & us here in record numbers and we have to, despite everything else, to keep that going but instead they took the foot of the gas and off of the necks of the Repubs and allowed them back into the game with some of the stupidest political rhetoric ever seen or heard in this country coupled with their real truth: the outward reality of White, in-bred institutional racism that we all knew existed behind those racist  lying White faces and yet they seem to have caught on when they should have been beaten down........maybe November will be a smaller repeat of Prez Obama'e election in regards to winning seats in the House & Senate which will cause the Repubs to crawl back in their holes (this would really hurt them and deflate the momenteum of the Tea Party) and cuase then to initiate plan B (you know they they got one) but if they gain any traction with enough wins to enact their already known stragety, a return to the past; retain power, go back to the policies that made this mess, deter and repeal the agenda and policies of the Dems & the Prez and settin up for a Repub 2012 victory, then the Dem leadership, the controllers of the message & top down motivation for it's base, only have themselves to blame because they allowed that rabid excitement and passion of the base (unlike anyone has ever seen in politics) to dwindle back down to it's "assumed" reality and if that happens, then the real finger pointing and blame game begins for years to come, from the top blaming the bottom ("buck up & stop whining") and visa versa....but by then, it's way too late.



After 8 years of failed policies, political lies and ineptitude, it was determined that after 2 years of presistiant corrective action, it totally failed to accomplish anything and we the people, decided to go back to the old formula controlled by the very creators of those failed 8 years in order to fix the current condition........that's just crazy.


It will be an complete & total embrassasment and the Repubs (knowing their unashamed & unbridled racist true colors and intentions) will laugh & rub it in the faces of the Dems non stop while they completely dismantle & destroy everything....you think that racism is grabbin' a foot hold with these racist Repub White folks now...let's them win decision making power back in November a la carte and a gear up for a good chance to win the White House in 2012....this country will steadily be in a downward spiral revisiting American history's past once again.
