Where's Obama's Primary Challenger?

Did we get yesterday's news correct? President Obama is going to put social security up for negotiation? Somebody's kidding, right? A Democratic Party president putting up the New Deal and the Great Society as sacrificial lambs for the extreme right-wing Republican Party to make a meal from? It's no joke, apparently, because April Fool's Day passed some time ago. Surely, this will bring the liberal wing of the Democratic Party, as opposed to the Wall Street/free trade wing, to find a challenger to Obama for the Democratic nomination for president in 2012? One would think such a challenge would be in the works, since Obama's other policies, such as foreign and civil liberties, are just as bad as his tax (did not let the Bush II tax breaks for the rich expire) and just announced economic policies. Obama is banking on the fact that the choices between worst and a little less worst are the only two options for voters. Either a disgruntled Democratic Party or a po…

Blog News LI

In news from Europe, amazingly, for no ostensible reason, Ex-Prime Minister (Ukraine) Yulia Tymoshenko was removed from her own trial in Kiev, which seems to be more evidence that this is a kangaroo trial. "Trial in absentia," as Tymoshenko's blog also put it. Whether this is a temporary move by the court authorities in Kiev or permanent for the rest of the trial is not clear at this time.

Back to America: it's unfortunate that a Democratic-controlled Congress from a couple of years ago defunded an organization, ACORN, that was assisting low-income citizens with registration, housing and civics-related issues, because of a trumped-up media frenzy that was based on false and distorted allegations. Now, Republicans in the various state houses around the nation, which they have control of most of them, are trying to make it more difficult for the poor to vote through various vote suppression laws and administrative tactics, obviously figuring that they would vote more…

Good Showings Were No Accident

The mainstream news media may ignore political candidates that really represent the people's interests, but they do not actually discount them as those who could take political office, which is exactly why they don't publicize them. Mark Greene has met literally thousands of voters on the streets of King County campaigning for various offices since 2004, and we believe those strong numbers will pay off in this year's countywide election against the unpopular Sims-Logan-Huff machine. Mark's good showings in Alaska in 2000 and 2002, and at least a 47% count in the controversial 9th District of Washington representative primary in 2004 were in spite of miniscule press coverage, but a strong campaign presence. Count on Mark to continue with the same campaign techniques that allowed him to make these good showings in the past.
