Hundreds Of Hillary Supporters Leaving The Democratic Party

Word on the street is that hundreds of Hillary supporters are leaving the Democratic Party. Some have crossed over and joined the Republicans and others have joined third parties like the New American Independent

Here is an excerpt from a press release from the NAIP.
"In the wake of the divisive 2008 Democratic primaries. A growing number of Hillary Clinton supporters are searching for an alternative to the Democratic Party, which many believe has abandoned them and their ideals.

Over the past week, traffic on the sign-up board at the NAIP web site has been “off the charts,” according to the site administrator. Comments left by new sign-ups paint a picture of Democrats and Clinton supporters enraged at the treatment their candidate has received, and looking for alternatives.
“The Democratic Party Left Me”"

I rather the NAIP platform, it aligns very well with what Hillary was fighting for. So head over and check it out.

Unfortunitly without Hillary on the ticket I will not get out and vote this year. I am uncomfortable electing a man I know nothing about and who has pushed out a woman with far more experience and know how. She has the knowledge and power and we need her in the White House to fix another Bush's mistakes.

I have several reasons why I will not vote for Obama, for starters, I dislike him because he was anointed by DNC Party insiders and the bias and sexist corporate media before the primary even started. He has claimed himself to be above it all when he is clearly NOT. He has only built himself up by tearing the Clintons, especially Hillary down by consistently labeling her calculating, polarizing, divisive, dishonest, secretive, disingenuous and untrustworthy so often that even his supporters refer to her this way. He also built his notoriety on his ability to inspire hope and change in an uninformed, vulnerable and impressionable Bush/War fatigued society with his words, which are cheap talk and are not even his own words as he has also been exposed to being a plagiarist, which is completely wrong and unethical nor is a descent way to conduct yourself when attempting to lead the most independent country in the world that has built itself on its values which does not include dishonesty and cheating, which any form of plagiarism is. I was prepared to overlook these not so flattering flaws of Obama’s and still try to bring myself to vote for him should he fairly become the nominee, but this changed when Obama started officiating himself as the nominee when he was barely ahead in pledged delegates in February and started calling for Hillary Clinton to withdraw from the race while blaming Hillary Clinton for being the cause that is dividing the Democratic Party. I also find him disingenuous and deceptive by telling people he did not vote for the Iraq War while vilifying Hillary Clinton for her vote, when the truth is he was not even in a position to vote in the first place. I also do not appreciate Obama pulling out all of the stops to make sure the situation with Michigan and Florida is not rectified, especially when he clearly broke the rules and campaigned in Florida.

I also do not appreciate how Obama’s campaign was caught red handed by Tim Russert that they were responsible for pulling the race card before South Carolina, and Barack and Michelle Obama stood by silently while the Clinton’s were unfairly labeled racist to the point that it guaranteed defeat for Hillary Clinton in heavily black populated areas. If Obama was so above it all and such a unifier, then he would have stood up and said “I may think The Clintons are many negative things, but racist is not one of them, so please do not vote against them for this purpose,” but instead he exploited it for his evil gain which has started division in this country and in the core of the Democratic Party. Aside of all of this unfairness he has skillfully practiced, he has associations that are very questionable, such as Jeremiah Wright who has caused more racial divide and prompted Obama to give this country a lecture, not a speech on race, which is very insulting, patronizing and condescending to the majority of progressive America. Obama should have lectured Jeremiah Wright on race, not the American people who did nothing to have this divisive issue imposed upon them. Then we have to believe this was a fa├žade and now Obama had an epiphany and now rejects this man, even though he said nothing different in May than he did in April and March and the last 20 years that Michelle and Barack Obama has attended his church and hateful and Anti-American sermons. Then you have other associates that are anarchist and Anti-American also, which is a direct threat and risk to this country.

With of all of these issues that have surfaced, Obama has not been accountable to or for any of them, which also shows nothing but lack of leadership and the ability to accept responsibility for his own actions while playing the victim and playing the race card, which is the worst example of a presidential leader could ever be, even worse than George Bush. Aside of all of these issues, he is not experienced, has not accomplished much of anything, has absolutely no real solutions to fix what is truly wrong with government, and his idea of change scares me more than another Republican term does! I believe you work your way up in life, you don’t just wake up one day and say “Gee, I think I want to be President” then automatically become the anointed one just because you demand it and have not done one thing to EARN the most powerful position in the world that affects the lives of millions of people not just domestically, but abroad also! I am an American first and a Democrat second and it is un-American to ever vote for someone as hot headed, arrogant, self centered, inexperienced, dishonest, disingenuous, antipathetic towards America, American history and American government, self entitled, self serving, disrespectful, out of touch, unfamiliar, unknown, unaccountable, calculating, deceptive, underhanded and divisive as Barack and Michelle Obama are.

Hillary Clinton is the most qualified candidate and if she is not the Democratic nominee, I turn to the next most qualified candidate, and IT IS NOT Barack Obama, It is John McCain, so that is who I will be voting for in the General Election. Obama is so bad for this country and has too many unknowns about him which is an even bigger risk for this country than another Republican term so I would not even vote for him even if he was so blessed to have Hillary on the same ticket and even though I am a life long Democrat! I have not left the Democratic Party but The Democratic Party has left me! Obama does NOT represent the core values of the Democratic Party and the Clinton’s DO. The Clinton’s are THE ONLY REASON the Democratic Party has EVER EVEN HAD A LEG TO STAND ON! Your complacency is arrogant and irresponsible and is unbecoming of Democrats. Believing just any so called Democratic candidate will win the General Election is only setting your own selves and the Democratic Party up for failure and deservingly so.

Since February, voters across this country have had to hear supposed neutral Super Delegates such as Donna Brazil and James Clyburn along with their advocates such as Reverend Al Sharpton stating across the board on the media that “the Super Delegates or Party insiders better not take this away from the first viable black candidate or we will march out of the convention and not support or vote for Senator Clinton,” despite Hillary still having a very viable path to the nomination or Barack Obama not having the necessary delegates to win w/o Super Delegates. The truth is, Party insiders have stolen this election from Senator Clinton since day one. Now the race has come down to being split down the middle, and the party insiders gave it to Obama, the least qualified and known candidate.

These are the reasons I will not be voting for Obama. After talking to several supporters of Hillary Clinton, I know I am not alone.

It is not about Sen. Obama. It is about the Super Delegates, the DNC and the coup that just took place.

I know Sen. Obama, he is;
The presumptive nominee, who rather go play golf, rather than gather with some “Hillary” supporter to show that he cares. Sure he needs to rest and be with his family, yet giving two hours of his time to US is not asking for much. He could have done so from his living room.

Yet I will say, it is my hope that Sen. Obama selects Sen. Hillary Clinton for VP. Otherwise I am going to go play golf come the November Election. Before I do, I will cast my vote for Sen. McCain. He has shown that he can move to the middle of the Left and the Right wing. I rather vote for a war hero than vote for an Ivy league graduate from Harvard.

I myself will not vote in November if Hillary isn't on the ballad to be President. She is the most qualified for the job. I don't know about anyone else but I think putting a Muslim in the White House (Obama), is just setting this country up for alot more problems than it already has.

I think the headline should read Thousands of Hillary Supporters Leaving The Democratic Party. I hope the DNC and Hillary Aides read your blog.

Think Independently! Think for yourself and don't let some party tell you how to vote. VOTE/WRITE IN for the best person whoever you feel they are.

For me that's NOT OBAMA and NOT MCCAIN.

If I vote for someone on the ticket it'll be any other party/person listed other than Republican or Democrat. Libertarian, Green, or Independent. Just to make a statement against these parties that we need another party.

But I'll probably write in Hillary. If here in ALABAMA they'll allow it.

I myself will not vote for Obama. He had this handed to him. You ask Obama supporters to name 5 things that Obama has done for our country without looking it up on the internet.All you get is he will be good as a president. Heck I can name 50 or moe that Hillary has done or would have done with out looking on the net. She does know her History. She knows there are 50 states and not 57. I'am so tired of the media and the DNC telling us who to vote for. The DNC has split the Democratic party, not the voters. Remember Florida is only half a state and Michigian is only half a state.So come Nov. Obama should only get half of the votes from both states.I'm hoping Hillary will sign the needed papers in the states to write her name in. That is the only way we can write her name in and it to be counted. As for uniting the Demo party. I don't think so. The Dnc has it's self to blame for choosing Obama before they even knew about him. HILLARY ALL THE WAY if not 2008 then 2012. And to the DNC get the jest WE DON"T WANT OBAMA!!!!!!!!!

I have had people ask me who will I vote for now since Hillary is not going to be running for President. I have tried and tried to think of a reason why I should vote for Obama. I have family members that can not understand why. (they love Obama) I have asked them what has he done or will do that would make him a better president than McCain. They came up with speeches that he has given about what he is going to do. I give it to him, he is an elegant speaker but that should not determine the president. I listen to Rev. Wright's sermons. The speech he gave before the NAACP on April 27, 2008, wherein he stressed that he was not "divisive", but "descriptive", and that the black church experience, like black culture, was "different" but not "deficient". I loved the speech. At that moment I really thought that the "MEDIA" hyped the negative points on his sermons. Then Obama disowned him after he made that speech. The funny thing about it is no one picked up how Obama quickly turned his back against Rev. Wright, the black community, and even his own grandmother. These are his direct words from his speech.--->"I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother — a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.
These people are a part of me. And they are a part of America, this country that I love."

So what are you telling us sir is when times get tough you would throw anyone under the bus! That is why I am having a HARD time in supporting Obama.

I left the democratic party on 5/31/08 after 30 years and donations to them every month. They have shown me that do not represent me any longer. I will never vote for Obama and will actively campaign against him for John Mc Cain, at least with him I know what I am getting. It will only be 4 more years frankly I can wait.

I also supported Senator Clinton, financially and with my votes and campaigning for her...I will always follow her, until she follows Barrack Obama...and I will not. We would have followed her to another party, because if we are all honest...we don't really vote party, we vote for the person...So, as sorry as I am about how badly Senator Clinton was treated by the ignorant little boys in the DNC and even in Washington, like Ted Kennedy, and Kerry...and Dean...funny thing though, Bobby Kennedy's son...Robert Kennedy Jr. followed and supported Senator CLinton as did Mya Angelou...Senator John GLenn...so what does that say...those with integrity Glenn, Angelou, Robert Kennedy Jr...are honest and have the American people in their hearts and minds,while the sexist Ted Kennedy and Dean and Kerry etc...don't want a female in charge...they are all womanizers and Senator Clinton has had to deal with this every step of her life and so have most of her supporters...and the saddest thing is, Obama is a sexist and a radical racist...but, he also lacks respect for women...so what happened with his grandmother...and he has two daughters he took to that divisive racist angry church...
The saddest thing of all is Senator Clinton would have been the best President...after all the men have had this job for 200 years and look at the messes they have made...every single time..a woman would have done what we do...stay on task, stay strong and get the job done..without ego or envy..getting in the way..she is stronger than any of the men and Obama had to have the nomination given to him...so she is the STRONGEST candidate...NO, I won't vote for BHO, I will vote for MCCAin...at least he is a descent man...and has experience dealing with terrorist...and he is a good candidate...it doesn't matter what party it is...it's the descency and the heart and the knowledge of the person...I will vote for MCCain now that Senator Clinton has been pushed out as the Nominee...at least she got her votes by earning them and not having them given to her...like OBAma did, but, then look at the company he keeps...

Grow up yourself! Go back to your Obama blog. No one here is interested in your comments - or your candidate. We'll vote for whom we want and frankly my dear, no one gives a damn about uniting behind Mr. Kool Aid Man.

Please, please, please, to those of you who say you will stay home on election day or write in a name on the ballot ... I beg you to vote for McCain. I detest Obama and the racist, American hating ideals that he holds deep in his heart. If you waste your vote on a write in or a third party, Obama wins! Do you really want him representing our country. I know the terrorist factions do throughout our world but I surely don't want him as head of our country. Vote McCain in 2008. Make your vote count and send a loud, clear message to the DNC that we are not idiots who will fall into line behind Obama because they and their pundits say we will. Stay strong people and protect our country. Vote McCain in November! For all of our sakes.

Obama does not deserve any Hillary supporters vote. BO stinks and will not get my vote. 4 years is not to long to wait for REAL CHANGE. Pundits say 17.99 million of Hillary's supporters will turn to BO. They know so little. HC supporters a new site is opening in a few days, go to http://www.hillaryclintonsupportteam.com it is not a site connected to Hillary but for her.

We will show the DNC and take care of the backstabbers in Congress. There is power in 18 million and they better begin to fear that because they will feel it.

Please send a Thank You card and at least a dollar to Hillary... don't let the Kool Aid Kid buy a vote.
