I am not a second class citizen!

I am a Democrat. I have always been a Democrat, since I was old enough to reason it out for myself. That's not to say that I am entirely happy with the so called leaders of the Democratic party right now, but that's neither here nor there.

Today, three House Democrats, Dave Obey, D-Wisconsin, Jack Murtha, D-Pennsylvania, and Jim McGovern, D-Massachusetts, proposed a "war surtax" to pay for the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Personally, I think that's a stupid idea, but none of the other Democrats seem to want to do anything to end the war. Never-the-less, a stupid idea, sure, but then to have to listen to that stupid twat Dana Perino, the current White House Press Secretary, say this (with that stupid little George Bushesque smirk on her face):

"We've always known Democrats seem to revert to type".

So I'm a type?! I'm a lesser being because I don't belong to her party? This is not even close to the first time I've heard a member of this administration speak in a derogatory manner about my party. And quite frankly, I'm sick of it. It's true that I didn't vote for George Bush, but he is the President of the United States. That makes him my president, too. Or it should. But he's not. He refuses to be my President. In fact, this person who is supposed to be my President sneers at me, looks down on me, treats me like a helot. The way I see it, when you become President you become the President of the entire United States, not just the segment of society that voted for you. George W. Bush apparently doesn't see things the same way.

This person who represents our great nation on the world stage has done more to further division, dissent, and down right disagreeableness, in this country than any other ten people I can think of. He fosters discord between the parties. He encourages his minions to fling mud, to cast aspersions on, to out right lie, about the people who belong to my party. I'm so sick of this crap. Why can't people see what this administration is doing? Do the American people really not care?

Anyway... that just really got my goat, this evening, when I saw that heifer looking down her nose at me while she smirked and bad mouthed Democrats. I am a Democrat. I am not a type, I am not a helot, I am not a lesser being, I am not a second class citizen.

I am a Democrat, a citizen, a tax payer, a patriot, a voter, a contributor to my society. What are you Dana Perino? A mouth-piece for a low-down, lying, good-for-nothing, war-mongering, no-serving, drunk-driving, cocaine sniffing, walks like a baby with a full diaper, sorry excuse for a president. So, you are a Republican. That makes you better than me... how?

Make that three Democrats!

P.S. You'd get along great with my aunt. She very actively protests our current administration with Lake Forest Park For Peace.

Thanks ladies. I knew there was a reason I loved you two. HA!

I would be more active myself, except that I live in Rupublican Central. Democrats don't even run for most of the the local offices, so I can't even cast a vote for some elected officials around here. I have no choice on most of the ballot.

I keep asking hubby when he's going to take me to live in a nice place where Democrats are the majority. So far it hasn't happened.

You have got to be kidding? said...

I ran across this blog and have to kind of chuckle... I am (and always have been) conservative. Not Republican - but conservative. Sometimes that means I vote Republican - sometimes not. But looking at this past year and the radical changes the new adminsitration is pushing down out throats.

1. Communists in the White House
2. People that "look up to" Chairman Mao (a man who directly caused the death of up to 70 million people.
3. Czars that advocate forced sterilization and abortions.
4. A white House that parties while there is 10% unemployment.
5. Today a Czar that scoffs at the Free Market
6. A White House that develops enemies lists for people and organizations that do not agree with their views.

I could go on and on - but what is the point. You did make a good point. A president should be president for everyone - please tell that to BO.
