MN Senator Amy Klobuchar latest Missive: "Roll the Dice" Missive & our response!
Dear Amy, (since we are on a first name basis)
We received your email titled: "Roll the Dice" where you start out with the following sentence:
"You and I worked hard to get President Obama elected, and now he needs our help again to build winning Democratic campaigns and get out the vote in November. He's counting on us toget this done"
My response to you: The last time I heard the expression "Roll the Dice" it was in the context of Pres. Bill Clinton telling Americans that voting for Barrack Obama was like Rolling the Dice; I happened to agree with the former President and No you did not get my help to elect President Obama nor can you expect me to be of help in any context other than defeating Barrack Obama and supporting those that will assists in slowing down his power-grab breathtaking agenda!
and the remainder of your email states:
Whether it's health care, unemployment benefits, or judicial nominations, Republicans have decided that stubborn refusal gives them better short-term political gains than working with thePresident.
My response to you: Seems to me that until Jan2010 you had 58 Dem & 2 Independent, (Veto Proof Majority) – Until January2010 the 111th Congress had no desire to “work” with the opposition (in fact the Democrats had to bribe and threaten their own to pass HRC 3200). As a reminder let me quote Mr. Obama: “We won the Elections, we’ll write the bill (s)!”
There are two problems with this calculation: First, the American people cannot be played like a game of chance--in the end it will catch up with the "Party of No."
My response to you: Then what are you worried about… you should be quite pleased as this may guarantee absolute control for Democrats (assuming of course the American People are too stupid to figure out YOU/the DEMOCRATS are playing us for fools!) THIS IS a gamble for sure!
Second, we need to get this economy moving again, and we cannot afford to let anyone roll the dice over Americans' hopes and dreams.
My response to you: You mean like the little thing called STIMULUS???? $857B - That was supposed to create “Shovel Ready” jobs?? Republicans went along with this Stimulus Bill, can’t accuse them of not “working” with you! So where are these jobs that are supposed to not play with the Americans “Hopes and Dreams”?? Hey, where are these jobs? You know, the “laser-like” focuson jobs Pres. Obama promised us!
I have had enough of the games. If you have too, take on the "Party of No" and support our president with a gift to the DSCC.
My response to you: You know Amy, things are tough out here; those of us working hard do not really have the cash flow to support any candidate for office that does not really represent our interestsand philosophies: I suggest Mr. Obama get in touch with Goldman Sachs (I hearthey were quite generous to him last time around!)
By the way, I want you to know I have been a registered Democrat since I returned from Vietnam in 1968 and have actively supported the party’s positions and candidates in the past. I (and many others) feel betrayed by the party and will never identify with a Socialist Agenda and Identity Politics!
The relentless use of the “Race Card” by this Democratic Party and surrogates of this Administration will comeback to haunt you.
The relentless “demonizing” of the opposition by this Democratic Party and surrogates of this Administration will come back to haunt you.
Respectfully, Ray H.
