It’s On Purpose. (A Follow-Up To “Obama’s Gesture.”)

Ahhh! I took a weekend away from the news and the primary race, and look what goodies I missed! Wow, it’s just so much fun to watch the Obama for America Party keep destroying any small vestige of hope I had that they might ever do the right thing and nominate Hillary Clinton, or at least honor her enormous delegate count and popular vote victory at the Convention.

Now that The One is the presumptuous nominee, he is doing exactly what Democratic insiders thought would be done in January – pretending that it’s important to him that the Michigan and Florida Delegates have their voices heard at the Convention. Of course, if Hillary is not listed as a nominee on the ballot, their voices will not be heard, because they won’t be able to cast their votes for Hillary Clinton.

No one in the Obama/DNC Conglomerate thinks for one minute that this one-fingered salute will bring Party Unity (TM). Obviously, the New Democratic Party (AKA Obama for America) is proud to telegraph their complete and total disdain for people who voted for the Senator from New York.

Oops. Too late.

It’s on purpose.
