The progressive party press likes to use words like chaos and disorder to describe the Trump Administration while it ignored ACTUAL chaos and disorder, this in the form of the Democrat Party.
We covered how FORMER President Obama is coming back to DC to run his insurgency army against President Trump. Well, a new development in that story is how Democrats are reacting to FORMER President Obama’s army, Organizing for America.
These are leaked emails that were sent to the Daily Beast, which the Daily Beast chose to publish. The fact that the Daily Beast chose to publish these emails further speaks to the existential divisions within the failing Democrat Party. Here are some highlights.
From Stephen Handwerk, executive director of the Louisiana Democratic Party:
“This is some GRADE A Bullshit right here,” (in response to the announcement by Generalisimo Obama to reform the OFA army).
He continued, “It also to me seems TONE DEAF—we have lost over 1,000 seats in the past 8 years… all because of this crap. Let’s get through the next two weeks—but then we gotta figure this out and keep the pressure on. WOW.”
Others on the thread shared these sentiments.
From Katie Mae Simpson, executive director for the Maine Democratic Party: “OFA showed up in Maine, organized a press conference on saving [Obamacare], with one of our Dem legislative leaders speaking, all without ever mentioning that they were in state and organizing. They hired someone I know, which is somewhat helpful, but my god, they don’t have a very good alliance-building process.”
This comes on the heels of this accusation by Nebraska Democratic Party Chair Jane Kleeb, “[With] all due respect to President Obama, OFA was created as a shadow party because Obama operatives had no faith in state parties.”
South Carolina Democratic Party chairman Jaime Harrison said, “I love and adore everything about President Obama except for OFA.”
Handwick offered this clarification to the Daily Beast, “If we were having a conversation about state parties, I would say OFA hurt state parties badly. It certainly had an undercutting effort. And there is a lot of work state parties do that isn’t very sexy… and that becomes incredibly difficult when budgets are cut in half because people are trying to curry favor with the president and his allies.”
“Supposedly, Louisiana has had, on paper, a state director for OFA who has been in the role for what I’m told is multiple years—none of us know who she is. She only just followed me on Twitter……That’s how I know who she is.”
The general issue is that the OFA takes away funds, activists, support from the state parties, and focuses mostly on the Presidential Race. This leaves the state parties unable to run effective campaigns for state-wide offices not in DC.
So, as Generalisimo Obama gathers his Blue Army in DC, the state operatives of the Democrat Party are preparing for more disasters thanks to the FORMER President.
