Markos, Stern And Obama
Update: Michelle Malkin has a report on the SEIU in Massachusetts up.
In solidarity? Coming from Stern, that's a hackneyed phrase. Along with his wanting to take up the health care reform fight, what's also worth noting right now is that Stern gave Markos and Armstrong, and in essence the Nutroots, their start, leading them into the promised land where politics and big money mix it up to gain influence for both.
Our challenge to you, to the President, to the Senate and to the House of Representatives is to fight. Now, more than ever, all of us must stand up, remember what health insurance reform is all about, and fight like hell to deliver real and meaningful reform to the American people.
Today, the Democrats are reaping what Stern, the Phoenix Group, Kos, and others sowed, as they were always out of step with the majority of the country. These are precisely the fights, the changes, they wanted when taking over the DNC. They've been plotting it for years. They're there. And if they fail, the Democrats, the Netroots and all the associated characters will find themselves in disarray.
It took the Republicans a decade or more to get there. The Democrat Party as currently aligned is on the brink. It has to fight, it has no other choice. The consequences of defeat will be huge for the far Left. And I doubt Obama is going to be willing to go down for, or with them. Grab your popcorn and watch that fracture play out. It might be fun!
Just don't kid yourself that we've already won.
