Grab a Mop

Yesterday a group of concerned Hoosiers delivered mops to Republican Party offices all across the state and asked them to pitch in and help clean up the mess they’ve made over the last eight years. Recognizing that we are all in this together the President has been hard at work to create jobs, ensure stable and affordable insurance, and better secure the country. But he has been met by Indiana Republicans (ex: Mark Souter, Mike Pence & Steve Buyer) with knee-jerk opposition and partisan obstruction to every new idea. Last week, the President suggested that rather than simply saying "NO" to efforts to help put the country back on the right track, the GOP should “grab a mop” and help clean up the mess we're in to move the country forward.

The College Democrats of Indiana are asking the Republican Party to take the President’s advice: either grab a mop and help clean up the mess, or get out of the way!

"And this is the cause of my life, new hope that we will break the old gridlock and guarantee that every American -- north, south, east, west, young, old -- will have decent, quality health care as a fundamental right and not a privilege."

Edward Kennedy (1932-2009)

The World of The Conservative Base

This is an extremely illuminating article about the way the mind of your average Republican conservative works. "Why would I want to know that?" I hear you asking, "I already know they're crazy." Good point, liberal-person-in-my-head (I'm losing my mind), but there will certainly come a time when you'll encounter people like this, and if you're anything like me, you'll want to argue with them. It helps to know exactly how they think: about Obama, about themselves, about the media, and about "elites" like us. Especially chilling is their praise for some of our favorite people here at Lefty's: Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck.

A Lefty's Call to Action

With today's important negotiations and the public option showing more and more support from the majority of Americans, Organizing for America is making a big push with the goal of reaching 150,000 (already reached!) 200,000 calls made to congress by the end of the day. It's fall break for most of us, so take the time to make a quick call or two.

Make the call Lefties.
