I do not condone the moving of primaries to compete with other states for attention.
In fact, the Republican Party, or should I say the Republic Party, is using the turmoil in Florida to its advantage.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Florida’s Republican Party is using a feud between state and national Democrats over the presidential primary as a recruiting tool, warning Democrats in a mailer that their votes won’t count in the election.
The mailer, to be sent this week, quotes Florida Democrats criticizing the Democratic National Committee’s decision to strip the state of its delegates to the convention where the presidential candidate will be nominated next year.
The Florida GOP is using voter data to target thousands of Democrats it thinks may be receptive to the message, said party spokeswoman Erin VanSickle.
“The Democrats in Washington are out of touch. Now – thanks to their egos and political infighting – you, as a Florida Democrat, may lose your vote,” the mailer says.
We have enough problems in the Democratic Party than having disagreement among each other when the appropriate date for a political primary should be.
Proposed solution. Let us have at the next convention an agreement that Primaries should be held at certain dates. Then let’s have a lottery and pick states randomly for the primaries in 2012. And let’s stop the infighting.
It is time that Democrats stick together on this. We don’t need a floor fight over delegates. We need to win the White House in 2008.
America deserves no less nor can it afford four more years of Republic Presidents.
