RE: [dfa-23] DFA WORKING GROUP MEETING Time to Move on. Planning for a Progressive Candidate for Mayor

It’s true the Republicans don’t throw their people under the bus.  It’s also true that they don’t pretend to be Progressives.  They don’t pretend to favor workplace rights.  They don’t pretend to respect women, they don’t pretend to support women’s rights.  Keeping Republicans in office who violate any of those Progressive principles is not hypocritical of them.

 

The last thing we want to do is follow in the Republican footsteps.  Yes there is a different and higher standard for Progressives and Democrats.  Bob Filner is a hypocrite and if we support him the Progressive movement and the Democratic party becomes hypocrites for doing so.

 

We have been expressing our opinions for weeks in these meetings.  That time is over!  We have come to some conclusions.  We are past due to work on what to do to attempt to preserve our Progressive beliefs and try to put a Progressive-Democrat  in the mayor’s seat for when Filner inevitably and probably suddenly leaves office.

 

I suggest that if anyone only wants to express opinion and not work on the goal of preserving Progressivism in San Diego, that they not attend.

 

Thanks,

Mike

It is important for you to come to the meeting to share your opinion.  

 

The Republicans don’t throw their people under the bus which is why they have been successful in moving the country to the right.  Is there a different standard for Democrats?  Even if the worst allegations are true none of them seems to rise the level of criminality.  In seeking perfection are aiding and abetting the special interests’ return to power?

I still like Bob Filner.  People stuck by Bill Clinton during similar problems.  I think we should stick by Mayor Filner at least for now.
