Obama gets the ultimate endorsement: the Communist Party USA!

I wonder if the CPUSA gets a little tingle running up their legs, too. They're endorsing the Obamamessiah for President -- shocker -- even though he isn't quite the perfect little Communist:

Barack Obama is not a left candidate. This fact has seemingly surprised a number of progressive people who are bemoaning Obama's "shift to the center." (Right-wingers are happy to join them, suggesting Obama is a "flip-flopper.") It's sad that some who seek progressive change are missing the forest for the trees. But they will not dampen the wide and deep enthusiasm for blocking a third Bush term represented by John McCain, or for bringing Obama by a landslide into the White House with a large Democratic congressional majority.

A broad multiclass, multiracial movement is converging around Obama's "Hope, change and unity" campaign because they see in it the thrilling opportunity to end 30 years of ultra-right rule and move our nation forward with a broadly progressive agenda.

This diverse movement combines a variety of political currents and aims in a working coalition that is crucial to social progress at this point. At the core are America's working families, of all hues and ethnicities, whose determination to move forward does not depend on, and will not be diverted by, the daily twists and turns of this watershed presidential campaign. They are taking the long view.

Notably, the labor movement has stepped up its independent mobilization for this election. It is leading an unprecedented campaign to educate and unify its ranks to elect the nation's first African American president. Last week, AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Richard Trumka told the Steelworkers convention that there is "no evil that's inflicted more pain and more suffering than racism -- and it's something we in the labor movement have a special responsibility to challenge."

If Obama's candidacy represented nothing more than the spark for this profound initiative to unite the working class and defeat the pernicious influence of racism, it would be a transformative candidacy that would advance progressive politics for the long term.

The struggle to defeat the ultra-right and turn our country on a positive path will not end with Obama's election. But that step will shift the ground for successful struggles going forward.

One thing is clear. None of the people's struggles -- from peace to universal health care to an economy that puts Main Street before Wall Street -- will advance if McCain wins in November.

Let's keep our eyes on the prize.

Yes, let's keep our eyes on the prize. We'll have gulags and totalitarianism in no time, my dear comrades. Just keep votin' the lefties into office.

Liberals will read this and immediately start screaming shrilly about how it's right-wing FASCISTS!!!!!!! (their favorite insult ever, by the way) who actually advocate these things. But let's keep in mind that the Communists are trying to get us away from the right wingers. Just get away from the right wing and the government will take care of everything in your life for you, and we'll have wonderful income redistribution, and capitalism will be abolished, and if you think it's not the best thing since Disneyworld and sliced bread, well, you'll see things our way eventually, and if not... well, we can take care of that.

Exit question: how many Americans see an endorsement from the Communist Party as a positive?

At least one.

Yep. And the more elected Republicans act like elected Democrats, the longer it's going to stay that way.

I didn't know the CPUSA was still in existance, I though they had melted into the democrat party and was now running the DNC and holding the positions of leaders of the house and senate. It's hard to tell a difference in the positions of Obambi, Dean, Peeloshi, Reid, Chavez, Castro, Putin, the dwarf in North Korea and 90% of the democrats in this country. Is there a difference I'm missing?

Heard talk show hosts do this, but I'd love to see McCain/the RNC have a commercial where they post quotes and see if the viewer can guess "who said it?". Is that Chavez, or Obama?
OBL, or Pelosi? Ackmidinajad, or Reid?

Come on Republicans, grow a set wouldja?

(I addressed you,Scrap,because I've been posting/visiting here for years and just figured out your name.That, and everyone here hates me. I'M ALL ALONE IN THE WORLD OF WIZBANG!)

C'mon, you guys are just sore because when Comrade Obama and the new Central Committee and Politburo reach power you'll be some of the first to be hauled off to Guantanamo or some other gulag. What's the worry? You'll be down there, basking in the warm Caribbean glow, enjoying the best that Camp Gitmo has to offer. The only sound you might hear is Limbaugh, Hannity and the rest crying like children in their cells as they're being "interrogated".

Yes, it will truly be a glorious time.

so maybe they just forgot how to count, or maybe they've got an odd standard for "ultra-right." 30 years starts us out in jimmy carter's term, and runs through the clinton years.

Those straight arrows in the MSM are giving max air time to "Republicans for Obama", formed by the republican icons Jim Leach and ...I can't even print the other name. But I wonder how much play the Communist Party USA endorsement will get?? Any wild guesses?

Hmm, Dems hold Congress for 40 years, Reps for 12, back to Dems 2+.

Brian - "More than are registered Republicans."

Brian being the disingenuous buffoon as always figured no one would ever follow his link and read the first para that read thusly:

During July, the number of Americans who consider themselves to be Democrats fell two percentage points to 39.2%. That's the first time since January that the number of Democrats has fallen below 41%
Great job at keeping your reputation intact Brian. You're to be congratulated!

For being an asshat.

Umm... huh? Disingenuous how?

The question was how many are registered, and I provided an accurate answer with supporting link. I'm happy to see you've improved your reading ability when it comes to polling reports, but you still have a long way to go on comprehension in general. Your frenetic desire to invent faux "gotcha" moments where none exist seems to get in the way.

Pretty damn selective in providing the complete story and context weren't you?


Yes, I was selective in act... (Below threshold)

Yes, I was selective in actually providing the information requested. I suppose I could have found some other data to change the subject, just as you have.

If I cared about anyone following the link, I wouldn't have posted it.

Look, just admit you're a moron and get over it. There are plenty of other threads where you can demonstrate your ignorance.
