Party Loyalty is how Elections are Won

After winning the Pennsylvania primary Hilary Clinton said to an enthusiastic crowd of supporters, “…the tide is turning.” When I think of a tide I associate it with a wave. A huge wave. Typically, reversing a tide cannot be accomplished without overwhelming force. The force has to be so powerful and commanding that the re-direction of the water literally has to do a complete shift. It is like standing in front of hundreds of people who are in an all out sprint, asking them to stop running towards you, and then requesting that they immediately turn and run in another direction. It ain’t gonna happen. Well, not without pre-orchestrated agility, selfless organization, and discreet finesse.


Quick and well-coordinated in movement. This small and simplistic definition of agility is reflective of the Republican Party. The GOP has been known for its ability to mobilize prior to the ‘big dance’ – and definitely during the big dance. Elections have been simple for them to win because they move in simultaneous coordination. All of the major players fall into line. Similar to the humility of Mitt Romney. When it was time to step down and follow, he did. He was a soldier taking orders. Biting the bullet for something greater: The Grand Old Party. Mitt Romney said the following a few months back. One would assume he was referring to all of America, but in my sometimes shallow mind I believe he was talking about his affiliation. His gang.

“…to this task, accepting this burden, we are all dedicated, and I firmly believe, by providence of the Almighty, that we will succeed beyond our fondest hope.”

“We are all dedicated”

That they are. Dedicated to the party. Not dedicated to the figurehead like the Donkey Democrats are emotionally attached to faddish Barack or man-tendency Hilary.


The state or manner of being organized. This definition is a perfect description of black folk’s former party (Yes, blacks were once aligned with the Republican Party). The Republicans are open to being used in order to save the unit. The family. When asked by someone in leadership to hold-off; they comply. If it requires a sacrifice they will oblige like a well trained child. Not that they think and behave on a childish level. No, the Republicans of this party are thinking robots who are in-tune with what needs to be done to acquire that presidential seat. They have learned to be unselfish for the sake of the whole. Seeking the final successful outcome by giving up a part of themselves.


Extreme delicacy or subtlety in action. Have you noticed how surprisingly delicate the GOP Elephants have been during this political saga? Every word is manufactured-ly calculated with the intent on not making a dreadful mistake. Listen to John Sidney McCain III when he speaks. His responses are short, concise, to the point, and most importantly answers the question that’s asked. He does not sermonize us with Hope and Change elocution like… You guessed it. Barack Obama. Also, there are not many Republican supporters or elected officials out there putting their foot in their mouth i.e. The Ultimate Democrat and uncontrolled fibber, Bill Clinton. Delicacy is what they aspire to achieve while being subtle. So subtle the American democrats have no clue what the Republicans are up to as America prepares for the “most important election ever” (according to Al Sharpton). Didn’t we hear the same rhetoric back in 2000? It is disappointing that black democratic leaders have to use fear mongering tactics to get black people to the polls after their great-grandfathers were dragged in the streets because they wanted their voices to be heard. What a betrayal! By the way, these are the same forgetful black people who favored the Clintons in the past – but now worship Barack Obama. And, on the other side of the race coin, we have these polished and educated white people who are suddenly Obama choir members when in fact they were Bill Clinton’s surrogates back in the day. No loyalty!


The Republican Party, unlike the Dummie-crats, is gearing up. They have given up so much for a victory. They are ready to die for what is important to them: Republican Loyalty. They have this brand of allegiance, and the Democrats do not. Democrats have been known to be fickle. So amazingly and foolishly inconsistent that a high percentage of them are planning to not vote in the general election if their democratic candidate does not win the nomination. What a symbol of togetherness they have. What a display of unity they have. But, what should I expect from a party full of loosely liberal minded, give me more, never satisfied, and always complaining group of wanna-be patriots. Patriots sacrifice. Patriots are not selfish. Patriots have the ability to coordinate for the greater good. Patriots are more than willing to strategically deploy for the greater good. Patriots move faintly while evaluating each and every step for THE GREATER GOOD.

It is too bad the Democrats are not in agreement. Not on the same page. Not moving in unison. Let’s keep in mind that stubborn Hilary is not the lone barrier in the road. If the Democrat Party was truly “for the people” they would have never built into their process the ‘supper delegate has the final say’ option.

John McCain, to my disdain, will be the next President of the Untied States.

You Democrats, are to blame!

Hmmmm... something to think about for sure. But I don't think this is the reason JM wins in November. It will be because you have a situation where it's very plain that Obama's race is a major factor. Republicans know this! Look at what the Clinton's are getting away with at the moment.

The rules are simple enough... win the most pledged delegates. There was universal agreement that Michigan and Florida will not count. Mrs. Clinton said herself that those votes would not count and signed a commitment to that end. Yet when Obama begins to win, the rules are changed??!! Come on, if it were John Edwards and not Obama, this would have been over as soon as it was mathematically impossible for Clinton to win.

Nope, Obama does not fit the picture that will be hanging with the rest of the white men. He is too black, too young, and too smart to be in the white house. The republicans know they can beat the crap out of Clinton in a general election because she will bring the conservatives, and independents that hate the name Clinton into the voting booth.

They also know that the only way for her to be in that election is if she "steals" the nomination from Obama. If she does, most blacks will look at this as a wake up call to the truth that racism is still strong and working in todays world. Thus, most won't vote. That black vote if motivated could help to push a democrat over the top, but if it's Clinton, forget it.

I thought he was crossing the color line. Breaking the color barrier? He is getting a lot of white support. If you really think about it, black people have an opportunity to be the 'deciding factor' for possibly putting a black man in office. But, will we show up? I wish I had faith that we will/would.

KH Responds to Muata:

Muata, look at it from the primary perspective, we are showing up in larger numbers than we ever have. In Texas we broke records at the polls and then the Caucusing was off the chain because there were too many of us. He can't win without the support of the white vote for sure, but we will put him over the top in a general election. Let's face it, a democrat should win this election without much problem because no matter how you spin it, G W Bush is seen as a big time failure at the moment.

He will take the young and the black vote. If he puts Bill Richardson as his running mate, he will get the Hispanic vote he needs to make it a blow out. What some of the fringe organizations that are not associated with any campaign should do is make the republican party look like what it looks like - Racist. Move on dot org and the gang should go after Rush L, Sean Hanity and the whole Fox News for all of the racially charged mess they are trying to put into the race. A taste of their own medicine. But it can't come from Obama.

I don't think he is breaking a color line. The fact that blacks have run before is breaking the line. We got in the game, now we may win it. By the way, I'm not all in on all his policy issues. However, of the 3 he is the only one who it seems will try to get all sides of an issue before making a choice.

Unfortunately, I do agree. McCain will win this one...SO SAD. Just curious, what do you consider yourself to be-Dem or Rep or what?

I think Democrats are making history!

They are just trying to decide which icebreaker it will be...

The First Black Man vs the First Woman to be selected to represent the party in the BIG dance!
