Come election time, we see venom-spitting competition against Dem leaders and candidates from a section of “Democrats”.
This year is no exception.
The anti-Obama propaganda machine is ON.
What is the big picture?
Obama won the election twice – reelected during a very bad year for Democrats.
I don’t want to list all his achievements – but just a few 1) Healthcare Act 2) Withdrawal from Iraq/Afghanistan 3) Repeal of DOMA 4) Nearly 30 Executive Actions favoring prevention of gun violence 5) A huge boost to Science, Technology & Engineering. 6) Landmark action on environment protection and climate change.
And all these IN SPITE of the obstructionist Republicans in the Senate & the House.
So instead of spitting venom against President Obama I think we should take a positive approach. In our communications we should highlight Obama’s achievements (who is not only the President but also the leader of the Democratic Party), that more could have been done but for the obstructionist Republicans.
In this election cycle we need maximum mobilization of our supporters. By spitting venom against Obama- the leader of the Democratic Party – is that achieved? Or are our supporters discouraged and demoralized? Who will such venom-spitting help?
People have two years after each election to build powerful mass movements to influence the Government. Instead of doing that I see some people – mostly quiet during this period – become hyper active when elections draw near and start spitting venom against our leaders. This is a lose-lose strategy.
At the State level, the same applies. Martha Coakley is now OUR candidate. In an earlier post I had warned about SocialSphere – the company hired by Globe to conduct polls. I think they are just way off in the statistical techniques they employ and the inferences they draw. So the latest poll result of Baker leading by 9 points should not surprise you.
Also – we need to mobilize all Democrats and build a coalition to defeat Baker. Venom spitting against either Don Berwick or Steve Grossman turns off those activists who were/are passionate about them. Continued act of vilification of Steve Grossman or Don Berwick is an act of support for Charlie Baker.
