Business as Usual
Was Giuliani secretly sneering at all those "community organizers" who poured humanitarian aid into New York after the terrorist flew into the World Trade Center? & He, on the other hand, was "executive" enough to parlay his name recognition, after the September 11, 2001 attacks, into forming his own "security consulting business".
When did "community organizing" become a joke? & Bad enough that Palin, Giuliani and company found it to be such a ridiculous concept, but really, delegates.... it was embarrassing to see all of you in such thoughtless lockstep with that kind of mindless schoolyard bullying.
Palin guesses, "a small-town mayor is sort of like a 'community organizer', except that you have actual responsibilities."
Lets see, community organizers...there was Martin Luther King, (snicker snicker) Mother Teresa, Gandhi, Cesar Chavez, the Founding Fathers, suffragettes, Civil Rights leaders, among so many others to whom we owe our "rights". & I might even say that Jesus and his band of disciples gave us a great model for community organizing.
& As Obama's Campaign Manager David Plouffe noted, "Community organizing is how ordinary people respond to out-of-touch politicians and their failed policies."
"Victory in Iraq is finally in sight, " you said. Since you are seeking to be a heartbeat away from becoming the Commander in Chief...maybe you can answer the question I have been asking since the United States invaded Iraq. & "What does victory look like?" I watched the video of your June 2008 address to the Wasilla Assembly of God, Master's Commission Graduates . In it you stated "our national leaders are sending our military men and women out on a task from God. & There is a plan and it is God's plan." & Is that the "victory" you speak of -- nothing short of a religious crusade? &
Besides the obvious lies about Obama and misrepresentations about her own record , I found the partisan, insinuating, bullying tone of the speech to be familiar. & We have been listening to Bush and Cheney deliver speeches like this for years, and in spite of her folksy delivery, it appears that she's a self proclaimed "pit-bull" who will make sure that the divisive politics of the last eight years remain in tact.
