Denver Group Ads in Florida and Michigan

Posted on: August 7, 2008

Now You Count - Now You Don't

Now You Count - Now You Don't

Voters in Florida and Michigan are getting a earful.

The Denver Group print ads are running in Lansing Journal and Tallahassee Democrat.

And what perfect timing, coming right after the scam pulled by the Obama campaign to, oh hell yes let’s say it, bamboozle the voters of Florida and Michigan. Manipulate the process, fix the procedures at critical steps, make it seem like ‘its the roolz’. 

All during Spring we heard about the rules, ad nauseum. Where are they now? Oh, what magnanimity! Or is it just a flip-flop, a croc. Wait, there is a distinction between a flip-flop and a croc.

 The bottom line is this, the Democrats are basically telling the citizens of both States:

Your votes don’t count when yours delegates counted; your delegates count when their votes won’t be counted!!

To fully understand the perfidy involved in all of this listen to just one voter from Michigan:


A few days ago, Florida State Dem Chair sent out an email, glorifying this latest attempt to pull wool over the voters eyes. Chairwoman Thurman says, quote:

Just minutes ago, Sen. Barack Obama sent a letter to the DNC credentials committee urging them to restore the full vote of the Michigan and Florida Delegations, proving his commitment to uniting the party and ending the uncertainty surrounding the process.[sic]

I want to thank Barack Obama, the Florida Congressional Delegation, the Democrats in our Legislature, and voters across Florida for fighting to have our votes count. This is a proud day for all of us.

My reply to the Chairwoman, excerpted:

 I can share your pride only under the following circumstance: you will earnestly work for an open convention, place HIllary’s name in nomination; you will recognise the validity of Florida primary and ask the entire convention delegation to vote unanimously for Hillary during the first ballot; you will urge Sen. Obama to gallantly and democratically advocate the recognition of an election in Florida that the state itself seems to have embraced fully.  Anything less Chairman Thurman, is usual politics of the most hateful kind and, in my humble opinion directed at Hillary. 

It was a polite reply, but the bottom line is clear. Ideally Sen. Obama should look in the mirror and realise that the game he devised, succesfull so far, may not go further in his service. He may win in Nov. or might not. It is a gamble, regardless of what polls, focus groups, stats, analysts tell us. Time has not been his best friend so far. The polls seems to be wildly all over the place. They are certainly where they should be: he was widely expected to run away with this. This was supposedly Democrats’ year to lose.

It’s even a bigger gamble for the country, to take an unknown quantity, full of good intentions, devoid of solid experience in legislature, executive, or business to be made the most powerful person in the world. The national yearning for change is hard to measure and is not always what it seems. American public will forgive and forget a lot, and when frightened will even give their leaders benefit of doubt. But even the good people of this nation have limits to their gullibility. We all remember how RMN and WJC were treated, each with a measured just desserts that each earned. Or, to think that B41 was tossed shortly after a magnificient victory in a just cause. That the mechanics of 3rd party candidatures hurt him is irrelevent; the very presence of the latter is both cause and outcome.

Americans always elected based on a totality of image, impression and imperatives. Wildly different results (JFK vs RMN; RMN vs HHH, RMN vs GMcG, JEC vs RWR, RWR vs WFM) show that it is not always specific items of character, policy, idealogy that influences the final outcome in November. The citizenry seem to intuitively perceive something of the deeper kernel of what a candidate is, at the moment of voting, of that moment, and vote accordingly. Few of our elections have been close, and the really close ones remain controversial (JFK, GBW) until overtaken by history. While polls may measure, even predict, they can’t describe this valuable process that voters bring to the booth.

To capture the voters’ hearts and minds, the candidates must be big on both counts!

  • Slaying Salmon July 15, 2014
    Home from commercial fishing grounds in Bristol Bay, and here's Piper helping slay salmon to market! A good season for wild reds on the Nushagak, Piper hopes to make enough to cover, maybe, a cell phone bill. Do you agree, as I’ve said before, we need more girls holding up fish in pics instead of holding up iPhones in selfies?!  It’s always wonderful re […]

  • It Takes a Village... to Slay a Salmon July 3, 2013
    The beauty of catching some of our Alaskan species with fins is the amount of meat harvested with each fish. Rod and reeling red salmon, or, my favorite, a big (or even not so big) halibut ensures you've got a few dinners taken care of even when feeding a bunch of people.We had a blast hauling in halibut in Homer a few days ago, despite the cold rain an […]
  • Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Gettysburg June 30, 2013
    Today marks the beginning of the week-long ceremonies commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. There will be a full re-enactment of the battle, discussions with panels of historians, and of course a re-reading of the Gettysburg Address. But as Lincoln affirmed when he dedicated that hallowed ground, nothing we say or do can “add or de […]
  • #SOTUGottaBKiddingMe February 13, 2013
    If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses. We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wou […]
  • New Year's Resolution to Keep the Faith! January 1, 2013
    Best wishes to everyone for a happy New Year! In the coming days there will be a great deal of debate about the goings-on in the political arena and the shenanigans in Washington. Constitutional commonsense conservatives must stay engaged and hold our “leaders” accountable to the voice of average everyday hard working Americans or we will very soon become an […]

  • Sharpton Likens Himself to James Bond vs Koch Brother 'Villains' March 18, 2018
    On Sunday morning's PoliticsNation on MSNBC, during the "Gotcha" segment, host Al Sharpton lamely compared himself to James Bond as he likened conservative donors Charles and David Koch to Bond-type "villains" because of their support for conservative causes.

  • Wrecked: Ben Shapiro Destroys Stelter for Denying Media’s Liberal Bias March 18, 2018
    In a bit of must-see TV, conservative icon and Daily Wire founder Ben Shapiro appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources this Sunday to debate host Brian Stelter on the topic of the media’s liberal bias. As would be expected, Shapiro wiped the floor with Stelter as he called out CNN for blatantly pushing a gun control agenda and not being objective.

    The liberal Daily Beast website broke out in protest over a lack of decency on HBO...as if their decency was their reputation. The headline was "Bill Maher Cruelly Mocks Donald Trump Jr. Over His Divorce: The Real Time host was the only late-night comedian to tackle the unfortunate news." They even added the word "SAD" over the top for ex […]

  • For 'Hate Group' Reporting, Univision Cites 'Independent' SPLC March 18, 2018
    In another self-inflicted blow to its credibility, Univision once again turned to the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to hype the alleged growth of ‘hate groups’ in the United States during the first year of the Trump administration.

    In the wake of the former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s firing from the FBI for misleading Inspector General investigators, the liberal media were rife with misinformation of their own.
