Our Short Comment on the “General Betray Us” Ad From MoveOn.org

This will be short and sweet.

If you have not seen the ad, please click here.

The “pontificating” has been done on the airwaves today by everyone from Chris Matthews on MSNBC to the talking heads at CNN. The issue appears to be whether the ad “helped or hurt Democrats.”

We seem to be the only ones saying this but…NO MORE DEMOCRAT/REPUBLICAN!!!

Say-When supporters are tired of BOTH parties – we want REAL representation and we want it regardless of the party affiliation of the politician.

We want someone to get their heads out of the wallets that seem to surround them once they hit Capitol Hill and start standing up for us.

All of the candidates need to get this and fast – you will NOT win the election in 2008 simply because you are a Democrat and the nation is tired of a Republican administration! We want a candidate that listens to us and puts our interests before his/her own – and at this moment, we’re not terribly inspired by the lot of you.

We don’t care if the ad helped Democrats – did it help We the People?

    Maybe you could send this editorial to the wire services or Chris Matthews and some of the other Republican run networks ( Dems to if you can find any) and see if anybody will pick it up. It might be a real effective way to correct the assumption by a lot of people that this is just another ” liberal democrat” web site and spread the message more quickly than bumper stickers or bracelets can do??? And for free!

  2. Monty –

    Thanks for your thoughts!

    We regularly send things to the people you mentioned – and more. Perhaps if supporters also sent these things along, we’d get more notice.

    (And there really is only 1 person in the office here that can be considered a “liberal democrat.”)

    Thank you for the info. I am glad to know this. And you are so right, We ALL need to be pro-active and not just leave it all up to you. Thanks for the reminder!
    And for the record, I am a liberal thinker in most areas, and a registered Dem., so am not knocking it, but in today’s political climate of “slotting” all who r not neoconservatives as “far left liberal democrats”, I just want to be sure everyone knows EXACTLY what Say- When stands for, so perhaps(?)(hah!) I get over zealous in my rantings.

    If people understood what was being taken away from them, all people would be ranting.

  5. I don’t know If I said it already but …I’m so glad I found this site…Keep up the good work I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say GREAT blog. Thanks, 🙂

    A definite great read….
