DeLay Praises Democrats’ ‘Incredible Organizational Advantage’

( – promoted by Colorado Pols)

From Politico

On the eve of John McCain’s formal nomination Thursday at the Republican National Convention, top Republicans acknowledged that Democrats will hold a significant organizational advantage in the fall campaign. Before the 2006 congressional elections, “the left and the Democrats had spent seven years putting together one of the most powerful political coalitions that had ever been built,” DeLay said Wednesday.

Hey, if DeLay is singing our praises it means that we’re doing something right. The former Congressman and House Majority leader, who was forced to resign after allegations arose that he was too close to troubled lobbyist Jack Aramoff, specifically pointed to Obama’s coveted e-mail and text message lists.

“That e-mail list or text list now just inures to the benefit of the Obama campaign,” he said. “It really gives them an organizational advantage.”

To all those folks who thought that the idea of texting his VP pick to people was stupid–you’d better open up your eyes and start taking notes. DeLay is laying it all down for you.

    Even though, as many of my fellow blogger Colleagues know, I’m an enthusiastic McCain supporter, but I have to give credit where it is due and in respect to creating an organization, the Obama campaign has done a BRILLIANT job.

      This time, when Will Rogers says he is not a member of any organized political party, he means he’s a Republican. Team Obama uses the new technology the way it should be used.  McCain (and me, for that matter) has probably never even used a text message.

        $300 million in forced union dues.

        Say Bob, aren’t you are on the Post Ed Board. Did you hear what the “radical” Boulder Daily Camera did last week?

        Let workers choose: Giving workers a voice is the purpose of unions

        We think the best thing about this particular measure is its potential to make unions, when needed, better. Happy, well-compensated workers with good benefits who are treated fairly aren’t tempted by, nor do they seek out, unions. And when they do, the unions provide a balance that the government and the courts do not.

        -The Camera supports Amendment 47

          The Boulder Camera is owned by the same right-wing outfit, Scripps, that owns the  Rocky Mountain News.  So a right-wing publisher orders its editorial board (which leans left when Daddy in Cincinnatti lets it ) to support an anti-union initiative _ and this is news because…

           In contrast, the adults at the Rocky today re-iterated their plea for your right-wing cohorts to scrap your useless anti-union addendum to the already all but right to work Colorado Labor Peace Act (you know, the law you don’t talk about and wouldn’t understand if you read it) if the unions will scrap their four crippling anti-business measures.

          How about it, Libertine? Do something to actually help Colorado business move forward!   Scrap your phony right to work law, which doesn’t guarantee anybody a job, and the unions back off their efforts to cripple business?  Sounds fair to me.a

            Your babble is non-sense. First you claim a vast plot from Cinninnati has made the call ordering support for 47, then rebut yourself and claim that Cinninnati, through the RMN, seeks a cease fire.

            Oh Bobby, when are you going to ask the Governor and Mayor about extending the same Right-to-Work rights government employees have to the rest of Colorado.

            Now that the City Council, Mayor and Governor have labored up every governmnet post in the state shouldn’t we all have the same workplace choices.

            After all, as the Camera states:

            We think the best thing about this particular measure is its potential to make unions, when needed, better.

            I call on you Mr. Ewegen, to help make Colorado’s Unions better for their workers by making them accountable to non-forced members.

            • bob ewegen says:

              Scripps headquarters is in Cincinnatti. So how about it, are you willing to call off your war on Colorado, do the right thing, and crawl back under your rock?

               And, without looking, boy, please explain what the Colorado Labor Peace Act is?

              OK< you can’t, but ask Jonathan to explain it, just after your get his coffee, finish shining his shoes, and walking his dog.

              And furthermore, dumbest of the shills, name one time mayor Hickenlooper has urged city employees to unionize. You can’t even keep your lies straight, Hick is dead set against that.

              RIGHTS OF EMPLOYEES

              Sec. 7. В§ 157. Employees shall have the right to self-organization, to form, join, or assist labor organizations, to bargain collectively through representatives of their own choosing, and to engage in other concerted activities for the purpose of collective bargaining or other mutual aid or protection, and shall also have the right to refrain from any or all such activities except to the extent that such right may be affected by an agreement requiring membership in a labor organization as a condition of employment as authorized in section 8(a)(3) section 158(a)(3) of this title.

          I know you’re a one-trick pony who can’t even get that one right. But the big labor backing went to Hillary. Obama made his beaucoup bucks raising on the internet from individual contributors who gave a max of a few hundred each.  That was a crucial advantage in the home stretch because so many Hillary backers had maxed out their 2300.

          By the way, when are you going to blame “forced unionism” for Adam and Eve’s expulsion from the garden of Eden.  You can do it!  And Jonathan will be so proud.

            This simple, fair, sustainable and tested Right-to-Work policy sure has you flustered.

            You are all worked up. Have you checked your BP or tested your blood today? I don’t want you to strokeout on us.

            This Jonathen Coors has really got you fired up too. You really have a personal grudge for this guy don’t you?

            Did he treat you wrong, fail to give you a story, just what is the deal with you and this Coors fellow?

            I imagine this is you at work…
