  •  Smells to me like a plan to get rid of true Dems (0+ / 0-)

    and reincarnate the DLC Blue Dogs, while placing another label on their asses.  If Obama wants his agenda advanced, Harry Reid just delivered him the biggest kick in the nuts he'll ever get, with that filibuster fiasco which essentially hands over the running of the Senate to McConnell and his gang.  OFA should be working hand in hand with the DNC, and the fact they are separate should have everyone on red alert as to what the hell is going on.

    •  Huh? (0+ / 0-)

      It's an extension of Obama for America.  And working in OFA on healthcare reform in 2009-2010, we had Democratic members of Congress such as Chet Edwards, a moderate Democrat in Waco, complain to the DNC about OFA calling supporters in his district to urge Chet to support health care reform.  As a result, we were told to stop.

      So please stop with the DLC BS.  If we are part of the DNC, it is the moderates and blue dogs who will try to get in our way.  That is what happened before.

      •  Only the DNC and the local party organizations (0+ / 0-)

        are loyal to Dems.  That's the way it needs to remain.  OFA needs to be mothballed.

        Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.
