OBAMA’S INDIANA SUPPORTERS NOT INTERESTED IN UNITY IN THE GOVERNOR’S RACE

The following is a clip from the Obama for President “events” website which literally says to Jill Long Thompson – “You support Obama, and we will support you”:

————————————————————————————-

Encourage Jill Long Thompson to endorse Barack Obama! (Organizing)

As Indiana Democrats, we want to “ditch Mitch” and see Jill Long Thompson elected as our next Governor of Indiana. As Obama supporters, we can offer her far more support in her campaign if she’ll offer support to us, as well.
We’re sending a letter, as a group, encouraging her to endorse Barack Obama for President.If you agree, but cannot attend this letter-sending event, please send an email to lpcinforobama@gmail.com and we’ll send you contact information and a form letter that you can send on your own. Of course, we still encourage as many people as possible to attend, in person; we believe in the impact of a group letter.We’ll meet in the large meeting room, downstairs, in the main branch of the La Porte County Public Library.
————————————————————————————–

So this is how Obama supporters want to build unity? By using a slimy coercive tactic to get JLT to support Obama? These supporters don’t even bother to hide what they are trying to do. You support us; we’ll support you. JLT doesn’t need help like this. It only begs the question of what else they are willing to do to get support for Obama.

The two races are separate and distinct in nature. If Obama supporters don’t want Mitch back in, they should support JLT. It has nothing to do with whether or not she supports Obama. I will be curious to see if Obama disavows this tactic.

    I agree. These people hurt the image of Obama, and it will hurt JLT’s image if she associates with them also.

    Actually, these people sound more like true Jim (I lost, so screw my own party!) Schellinger supporters.

  2. Phil:

    I just posted a little blurb about Schellinger’s invisibility once the election was over. He seems to be acting like a child who had his toys taken away.

    That is funny Charlotte. Immediately after posting my comment I went back to your home page and saw your new post. I guess great minds think alike!
