Just A Bit Of Caution For Common Cause

Common Cause is a ‘nonpartisan’ organization that very strongly tilts to the political Left. The key organizations that fund Common Cause are decidedly leftist and in some cases radically so; not the least of which is George Soros’ many funding mechanisms including the Open Society Institute and the Tides Foundation.

Common Cause is also rumored to be the organizational center around which leftist organizations of all stripes are to be coordinated as events demand. Today, Common Cause took on the President!

Common Cause demanded that the evolution of the Obama campaign into Organizing for Action be dismantled. They are concerned about the ‘pay for play’ aspects of OFA plans that brings major donor’s and bundlers into the White House to meet with the President each quarter. Bob Edgar, President of CC called the White House’s suggestion that OFA will independent “laughable”; hey, if anyone should know, they should know.

In their Press Release, CC reminds the President of his past positions regarding money and politics and the fact that this effort is far removed from those policy statements and declarations.

We Conservatives wish CC well with that reminder of past positions and rhetoric. We’ve been going down that road for years to no apparent effect. Here’s hoping an organization ‘inside the wire’ will have more success. A word of caution for CC; don’t be too disappointed if the President completely ignores your call to either disband or reorganize OFA. CC is, likely, in for an object lesson; the President wants, what the President wants and your plea will likely fall on deaf ears, regardless of their size.

Common Cause may discover that they simply don’t have the influence they thought they had with the President, despite their efforts on his behalf. They do however, mildly, suggest that such an organization outside of the White House and the Democratic Party is unnecessary in light of the hundreds of grassroots organizations that already exist.

In Common Cause’s defense they do consistently rail against the stink of money in the political process; until now CC’s positions have been aimed at one side of the political equation. Today’s Press Release is consistent with past positions. Common Cause may discover that the President is really not who they thought he was.

    Unfortunatly “ETHICS” has nothing to do with “Common Causes” decision and power and influence everything.

    Perhaps Karl Rove’s and Haley Barbour’s “Conservative Victory Program” can give them a lesson on eating humble pie.

    STILL WAITING FOR proof on BIG GOVERVENMET BUSH. Bob stands against African HIV humanitarian help. Where is THE MORE ???

    Karl isn’t backing TEA candidate just for that. He wants electable candidates. Not wacko we had in Missouri. Woman’s body will absorb pregnancy OR not get pregnant from RAPE ? REALLY ??? Surprise, surprise HE LOSS.

    Bob has __ catch phrases __ NOT SOLID statements of fact.

    We covered all this during “The Swing is the Thing” thread.

    Tsk,Tsk,Tsk,…..”Ball-less” and now “crap” you better wach it or someone is going to put you on a “Naughty List”

  • Bill Hedges

    Landreaux recently ignored your naughtily list. Gives me permission to write FUCK OFF.

    Yes was covered by you & disproven in another article. You brought up Bush Big Government in several articles with NO PROOF standing tall. I wrote _ STILL WAITING FOR proof on BIG GOVERVENMET BUSH. Bob stands against African HIV humanitarian help. Where is THE MORE ??? _.

    YOU ALSO BROUGHT UP KARL before. Fell like a lead balloon…

  • Bill Hedges

    We are covering it here because you brought it up here on this article. Don’t act surprised. Does not become you. You brought up Karl before and here. That brought up Bush. Two subjects you are irrational on.

    Like I wrote_ Had you stayed on topic of article there was a 98.42 % chance I would have NOT commented on this article…

    Get things straight in YOUR HEAD…

    From an article on “Politico” entitled “Senate GOP Ponders Ceding Power To President Obama” by Manu Raju and David Rogers.

    “Days before the March 1 deadline Senate Republicans are circulating a draft bill that would cancel $85 billion across the board spending and instead turn power authority to Barack Obama to achieve the same level of saving under a plan to be filed by March 8th.”……”But the plan appears to have the backing of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and is being advanced by conservative Republicans who don’t want the White House to continue using the sequester as a public relations hammer.”……”Lets be clear about the gaol here.The goal isn’t to hand over congressional authority.It’s to make sure these cuts actually happen.said Sen.McConnell”
