BREAKING NEWS, as they say. I was not overly surprised when I read Senator Dodd Will Not Seek Re-election, Democrats Say in the NYT early this morning. In addition to his many political problems he underwent prostate cancer surgery last summer, as I did in September.
However, when I next read the blazing front page headline Ritter to withdraw from Colorado governor’s race in the morning Denver Post today, oooooh, I wondered what was up.
Are Democrats falling on their altruistic sword for the sake of self-sacrifice and the good of the people? IMO they are usually willing to sacrifice others for their agendas but it is uncharacteristic to sacrifice their own political careers. Of course I’m always willing to wish (political) death to these (Euro-Socialist) infidels, but is there a greater plot afoot?
I find it odd that Democrats, holding unprecedented power in national and state governments, would lose self-confidence so quickly and seek an exit. I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but is it a Communist Plot (Euro-Socialist, actually) to approve all the current socialist agendas, such as the national health care mandate, and then make room for new Democratic candidates who can thus say “it wasn’t me that approved those things, you can trust me!”?
I for one will be staying tuned and watching this closely.
Be not complacent, any of you who still advocate individual freedom, self-responsibility, and the PURSUIT of life, liberty, and happiness. It isn’t over until we Vote The Democrats Out Of Office.
