‘kucinich critique turns into push for funds’

CNN: Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich is transforming his critique of President Obama’s actions in Libya into a fundraising plea, asking supporters to decide whether they like President Obama or the Constitution more.

After calling the president’s decision to act in Libya an “impeachable offense,” Kucinich Monday posted a letter on his website asking supporters for help in “putting together a broad fundraising structure to make sure that I’ll have the resources to continue to be a voice in the Unites States Congress.”

….Stating that he “never failed to stand up” when advocating for the “need to more our economy forward” or “internationally standing up for peace,” Kucinich asked potential donors to shore up his re-election efforts for 2012.

“I’m asking you to really get engaged in this effort to not just make it possible for me to stay in the United States Congress but to make it possible even more importantly for my voice to continue to be heard on your behalf,” he said.

Ohio is set to undergo redistricting following the results of the most recent U.S. Census, a development that may make Kucinich’s road to re-election more difficult….

So, Kucinich suggests the President should be impeached over Libya, then a day later tries to cash in by appealing for money to get himself re-elected? Hoping for some Teabagger dollars too, Dennis?

Wow.

As someone posted on another site, “He’s our very own Michelle Bachmann”.

      Hopefully we can get lots of people to write him with the same message. It’s time this guy found out that he is alienating a lot of people who would otherwise vote for him with this stupidity of his.

      Apparently that only applies to white presidents. It really is unbelievable the way everyone goes after him nonstop. And yet he still has very good approval ratings with the public. They keep trying to tear him down but it doesn’t work because his competence, intelligence, caring and work ethic just shine through all the nonsense.

        I strongly feel it is somewhat related to his color, no doubt about it. The things that I have read in books about Obama, make it clear they feel they can say any damned thing they want so in front of him. Like the weiner, who has apparently screamed at PBO a number of times.

        Yet, on another level, I think neither the dems or repugs know how to relate to him because he is not needy. He is not going to kiss their behinds, or wipe their tears. They are adults. He is not mean to them. He is just who he is. Most presidents are really insecure so they depend upon their congressional members to stroke their egos. Please tell me you like me. Obama does not need to be stroked by them. That makes others insecure.

        That is what makes him so unique.

            More angry than radical, probably. A true radical might work more with this president to bring about meaningful change? I can’t think of one thing weiner has really DONE in the 2+ years.

        • March 22, 2011 at 8:54 pm

          I not too young nor to old to but I recall an era when black males were ridicule and silenced by using the term angry black man.” Dont get me wrong my mom is French/Italian and my ex-wife and current significant other are European (White) my two precious angels are also biracial thus I have no anger at least not like my father who ironically married my mother and produced five offspring and remained married for more than thirty years until their eventual divorce – mother was born a princess and lived like a duchess in her world if you get my meaning.

          I have served my country in uniform and as a civil servant and I defy anyone to challenge my patriotism. For the record I am also a DAV, service connect compensated from the Deserts storm/shield era.

          Making a long, very long story short and returning to topic, the president is an honorable man and no worse than any before him as far as I know.

          I am aghast at the ridicule this administration receives from the professional left media and the INSANITEA GOP wingnuts. These guys have been bitter and angry since the man won the primary and have not let up.

          Their strategy was not complex, bring his approval numbers down at all cost which they did but not nearly enough yet to jeopardize his re-election.

          Americans for the most part tune out too much negativity and as I noted before white Americans shut don w the black and minorities by simply labeling those who were outspoken as angry / why has the same not happened to the Teabaggers?

          Folks, I am here to tell you that it aint as bad as they would have you believe, the budget crisis et al.

          The best thing this administration can do to shore/up a robust return to support like in 2008 is amplify the goodness of our people and country and believe me it will resonate and the firewall is set.

          In conclusion for twenty-five years I hung my hopes and dreams on the GOP. Foolish I realize now and in truth President Obama wasn’t on my radar nor was nay Democrat. I had served as a precinct captain for Senator John McCain’s presidential aspiration in 2000, Arizona is my home. I have voted for Mr. McCain for at least twenty/five years. he had my support during the 2088 campaign. I was on the rope truthfully after South Carolina and I witnessed what Bill Clinton did but the defining moment of me going commando and jumping on the Obama bandwagon came in August 2008 with the roll-out of Sarah Palin. It was then and after perhaps two of her appearances at racially charged palling around klan meetings that I donated and started working from my home in Europe to elected President Obama.

          I would like to believe that racism with our society is abated since the presidents election but if I were to do so would mean I was reckless and irresponsible. There are fringe elements of it on both sides of the political aisles. To deny it is naive.

          Yet I somehow continue to believe that we will reach the promised land of equality at least I hope so for the next generation.

          Thanks for this wonderful web blog and the opportunity to openly express ones feelings.

            Ciao Europe – your story is really interesting. And it goes to show the universal appeal that this President has, with people who choose to look beyond ideology and embrace his vision of America. It’s a simple dream, and reminiscent of the message passed down through generations of America about opportunity, hard work, integrity, grit and goodness. We haven’t seen it personified in many years, but this man and his family have it in spades. That’s a credit to both of their parents, and the values they’ve instilled in these two fine people, and which we see resonating with their children and friends.

            I’m intrigued by your evolution from being a long time supporter of John McCain and the GOP, and how you were transformed by the racism exhibited from the Alaskan former Governor. It’s encouraging to know that there was a line that was just a bridge too far, because with all due respect, I’ve wondered what it will take for supporters of the GOP to step away from the lunacy we’re seeing exhibited. The fact that you broke with your long-held convictions at some point is encouraging, because it means that there’s still hope that some on the right will see reason, and work towards uniting this country and working together to face the future. It’s been really stunning and shocking and saddening to see what’s happening with the current GOP. Where there’s hope, there’s a future.

            Anyway – welcome! And thanks for sharing your story.

          He is just a more highly evolved person than most of our elected officials. His ego and emotions don’t derail his focus, purpose or direction. I understand when he truly has an issue with someone, they will know it, it is evidently ice cold and withering.

          People seem to constantly misread and underestimate him. I don’t know why, he has no investment in deception. People are too busy trying to trip him up, instead of applying themselves ernestly and honestly to the work at hand. President Obama has stated repeatedly that good governance makes for good politics. Unfortunately, we have elected many politicians that have a different set of priorities.

In truth, we will be spending .45 but the penny is for the symbolism. Anyone here care to join me?

    The only part of this person’s behaviour that really bothers me is the reminder that our President is surrounded by so many people he cannot really trust – people who, despite their words, have very little interest in the nation as a whole. IMO, if they did, they would fully support the leader they currently have, a leader who seems totally committed to the progress of the country and ALL its people. How often do you find that to be the case? Instead they(almost all of them) repeatedly show only personal ambition and greed. No matter how strong our President is, that has got to be disheartening at times. If these shallow-minded folk could just wake up to the realization that working as a group under a visionary leader the Democrats could be so much more effective.

    The falseness surrounding the President bothers me because it is prevalent all around him. I never mentioned it at the time, but even people selling his signature or letters seem so tacky to me. I can’t imagine having to censor my ‘personal’ mail in case it shows up in some newspaper/news programme, or having a ‘personal’ one-on-one conversation and hearing it flaunted word for word later. I could handle people summarizing his one-on-one conversation with them (the President expressed his congratulations/ was encouraging/ etc. etc.) but it galls when they seek to be important by invading his ‘personhood’. Yes, he is the president. Yes, he is a wonderful, warm person. BUT, he is a person, so do allow him to have some genuine interaction with you (whoever you are)without knwoing that the whole world will be privy to it in a second. It is a good thing this man has a strong sense of who he is, and who his family and real friends are.

    [I just reread that, and admit that the family here is the wrong audience for this. However, I’m going to let it stand as it just came out and maybe it needed to. I didn’t realize that it had been sitting there, triggered maybe by the current hypocrite revealing his true coulours.]

      Good rant.

      I think this thing about being careful with everything they say and do was really demonstrated at the last White House Correspondents Dinner last year, when Ed Henry (or whichever one of those so-called “journalists” it was) wanted to show Michelle Obama how to send a tweet. And it became an international incident – calling on Gibbs, and then the President to give permission for Michelle to send a tweet. I think this is the loss of freedom that the President often speaks of, when he talks about what he misses most. The ability to just be yourself, and to be free to make mistakes. It speaks volumes about this family’s serving nature that they’re willing to live in that bubble, endure the attacks, and work as hard as I’ve ever seen people work – simply because they want to make lives better. The “Obama Derangement Syndrome” is real.

      Kucinich was fluffing Boehner because Dennis is going to lose his congressional district in re-districting and he was hoping Boehner would help him out. This is probably another attempt to save his own ass “Hey loop GOP rediscticting committee, I’d call for impeachment of the President – keep me around and I’ll be your attack dog”.

    To be honest, I am surprised it took him a full 24 hrs to begin shelling for money. When the liberals started spreading the false claims that POTUS gonna cut social security and would announce it during his SOTU speech, it took them a few hours after the first fake story, hrs after the faux outrage, before they started requesting money. *sigh* I am so over these people they have become transparent and boring.

They couldn’t be giving the Democrats more ammunition if it was planned as a money raiser for Democrats, but no, they choose to ignore that and focus their ire on the President in order to raise money.

    What bothers me more are the opposition know-it-alls gathering up “study trips” to Europe and elsewhere, trying to undercut the president’s message and give themselves air time. The latest Palin tour could be an example, (what SHE would do in the president’s place? Please!) except Palin is more embarrassing to the country than anything else.

    This is too precious! I was reading Arabist.net earlier which carries info about the regional struggles in the middle east and gets a dispatch from the Rebels in Libya regarding their food supplies:

    “””Many people who don’t want to actually pick up a gun and join the fighting, instead go to nearby towns, stock up on staples like bread and tuna — as well as plenty of junk food — and deliver them to checkpoints.

    “Now we are eating Snickers bars, before we could only just look at them in the store,” said Ayman Ahmed, a 23-year-old volunteer for the rebel forces who together with a group of friends took over the abandoned house of a oil refinery worker in the Ras Lanouf residential area.

    “We are really experiencing freedom now,” he said, in a living room filled with discarded juice boxes and wrappers from packaged sweet cakes.”””

      Reading this makes me very sad, cat48. It’s shameful that in an oil rich country like Libya, the majority of the citizens can’t afford to purchase simple products like bread, tuna, juice boxes, and Snickers bars. This lets me know the depth of the economic disparity that exists in Libya, and it helps me better understand why the rebels are so determined to change the system.

      I wonder when we will wake up and recognize that the Democratic party was long ago infiltrated by extreme right wing folks seeking to divide, conquer and thus destroy us from within. These people we call the “professional left” and “frustrati” may be laughing all the way to the bank. We cannot school them as they are already well schooled in their campaign for power to an elite minority at any cost. Our President “gets it.” It is my hope that a huge majority of the american people will soon get it as well.

    This is why they say there’s no difference between the parties – because many of these politicians are made of the same low quality stuff. They are governed by the love of money and power, and they could care less about the people they are meant to serve. That’s why they can take these pure positions, and neglect the needs of the underpriviledged or working people – as was the case with the tax cut fiasco on both sides of the aisle.

    They can’t understand the President when he’s actually making them work. They resent that he’s actually there to make a difference, and to really govern. I’m not saying all of them are this way – but too many visible ones represent the worst of the bunch. If these Democrats were actually serious about their mission, then they would be found in Washington every week that the Republicans are on these vacations – rubbing it in the faces of Republicans and showing who is there to work, and who’s there to play.

    All I can say is – thank God for President Obama.

    Brace yourselves, guys, “It’s On”–we are in for a wild Ride before the 2012 election. They (his adversaries) are going to pull out every dirty trick to unseat our President. He is a great politician and he knows what’s coming. This the way ugly politics are played. I considered running for mayor of our city at one point. It is such a “cut throat” arena, I “wimped” out–couldn’t take it. We are coming down to the home stretch now and they are pulling out all the stops to unseat President Obama. I think if we galvanize our efforts in a “get out to vote” campaign we Can Do This. Organizing for America has already started on our college campuses recruiting our young people. It looks like we have several college students on this thread. Good summer jobs, guys. I think the pay is pretty good. I remember 2008 the pay was good. We non-college students can really gear up with participating in phone banks, door to door talking to voters, work at registering new voters. There is so much we can do to help him win again–and he will with our help. I’m on my Soap Box, Again!!!!

That was an awesome present!” 🙄 😀 😆 And you know what? It was! In addition it was my normal idea of an ideal vacation – no packing, no plane ride, and no actual travel discomfort. So, thanks again. It was great and I had a wonderful time! 😆

        Thank you all! It was fun. I did nothing I didn’t want to do. 🙂 I enjoyed your company via your comments, and maxed out on responding on the blogs, going from post to post. I also revisited the weekend ‘vacation’ pictures several times. Yep, a good day!

      Happy Birthday…..today life celebrates YOU!

      Did you enjoy your get away…..I took a mental vacation yesterday to Brazil, it was awesome, and like you I appreciated the ease with which I “traveled”. I also am glad there was no need to don a bathing suit!

    And of course on Huff and Puff Post, the Orange Site, and other UNprofessional left blogs are treating Cuckooinich like a saint, “how DARE you talk about Dennis that way, he’s a hero!” and all that.

    It truly is pathetic when the UNprofessional left looks up to folks like Dennis Kucinich, Anthony Wiener, Alan Grayson, Bernie Sanders, Ed Shultz, Jon Stewart, and other UNprofessional left wackjobs. They are no different than Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, Snooki, Paris Hilton… they all will say and do anything to get attention, even if it is outright silly and ludicrous.

    Outside of the UNprofessional left blogging world, I do not know of a single soul who takes these folks seriously. This is what led to Alan Grayson’s downfall, he got drunk on his own koolaid and became more and more of an internet celebrity as opposed to a Democrat taking care of his constituents.

    And it looks like all of this bloviating from Kookinich will lead to his own downfall, and he will NOT be missed. He has voted more with Republicans than he has with Democrats, which makes one wonder: why hasn’t he switched parties and become a full fledged Tea Party Republican? His calls of impeaching POTUS are no different than those of Darrell Issa and the other Tea Party Republicans.

    Time to send the Keebler elf back to Mars with the rest of his UFO buddies!

    Does he even realize that we’ve got his number? Criticizing our President one day and the next asking for money. I wish there was a way to take money out of the equation when running for office. I miss Nancy. She made them work long hours. Instead we now have a lazy piece of rust trying to hold up the President’s agenda by refusing to do the duty he and all congress critters were elected for.

    Hey Chipsticks, When the president was having a meeting with the Dem House, I read somewhere that when Pete DeFazio was railing about etc., he was bragging about voting no on the recovery act b/c it was too small, and the president looked at him & told him “Don’t think we’re not keeping score, brother” Everytime I see this photo, which is one of my favorites; it always reminds me of that. I think he’d tell Kucinich the same thing!
