Some Conservative Districts around the country cast votes for the more Conservative “Blue Dog” Democrats because they see them as a more moderate choice than a Conservative Republican. The operative word here is moderate.
So, imagine the disappointment and feeling of betrayal these voters experience when their Blue Dog supports the liberal agenda of the Progressive wing that has taken control of the Democratic Party.
And it has to be especially disheartening to hear these dogs now claim they were bullied, or they didn’t vote for Health Care or bailouts.
The voters know that most of these people either empowered Nancy Pelosi and the Progressive radicals, or by simply being a warm body with a “D” after their name gave Pelosi and company the numbers needed to set the agenda.
The Progressives have an us and them mentality with the Democrats. The Democrats that represent the more conservative districts, but can get away with more liberal votes are the fair haired favorites of Pelosi, while the Conservative Blue Dogs are simply a necessary evil for Pelosi to use and toss aside (as many are now finding out).
While you Blue Dogs may truly be Conservatives, the Progressives own you and your party. Call it a hostile takeover. And it does indeed get hostile.
Pelosi knows she needs the Conservative Blue Dogs in order to gain the majority and set the agenda. It really does not matter if you supported Pelosi for speaker or which of the horrible bills you voted against. Your warm body allowed Madam Pelosi to rise to power simply because you have that “D” after your name.
There simply are not enough liberal districts in the country for Pelosi to be Queen of the House. She needs Blue Dogs, but does not like them. They are useful idiots.
And if the people of these mostly Conservative Districts reelect a Blue Dog Democrat, we already know what will happen. We have watched in horror as Pelosi bullied Blue Dogs to vote for Health Care. Those who were afraid of losing to a Republican in 2010 if they voted for the Health Care bill were promised a Primary challenge, well funded by Pelosi and the DNC. The only ones that were allowed to vote against the bill were those Pelosi believed she could count on to vote for her as Speaker in 2011. If you voted no without permission, you have now been thrown under the bus.
So, how can voters stop the Pelosi machine and still elect the Conservative Democrats?
Well, you can’t.
Any Conservative – Blue Dog – Democrat will be compromised by the Progressives.
The only way Blue Dogs can become relevant again is by purging the Progressives who stand in your way.
Look, I understand. The RINO’s took over the Republican Party and got spanked as a result in 2006 and 2008. Now, thanks in large part to the TEA Party movement, RINO’s are on the endangered species list. The ones still around after 2010 will be challenged, big time.
To be sure, RINO’s are not even close to Progressives in the speed with which they will destroy the country, no sir! It may take decades for RINO programs to destroy this great country. Progressives are able to lead us into complete and utter destruction at warp speed.
It’s what they DO!
But the bottom line is, Conservative Democrats can talk the talk, but the Progressives will not let them walk the walk. Pelosi will give you a beat down you will be unable to resist.
If you want to defeat the Progressive Pelosi agenda, you need to remove the cannon fodder she is willing to toss into the works as a sacrifice to the Progressive gods.
Cast your vote wisely next week. It is not about what a Conservative Democrat says. It is about what Nancy Pelosi will force them to do.
No Blue Dog can resist.
And do you really want Nancy Pelosi representing you?
