Taking Texas And The Nation Back

Texas Democratic Party Asleep At The Wheel

Posted by nytexan on February 23, 2007

The Texas Democratic Party (TDP) is again asleep at the wheel.  Barack Obama is here in Austin today for a rally and the TDP has not one word of it on their web page. For those of you who are not from the hill country, the TDP headquarters and the Obama rally are about 5 miles apart at most. So, I really don’t understand why there’s no mention of it.

This behavior of the TDP continually ignoring democratic candidates on the state and national level makes me wonder why the hell Texas even has a Democratic Party headquarters. This goes right back to my previous post of “Why Is Texas Red???”

I will give the TDP credit for going after Cornyn and Hutchinson on their failure of Texas troops.  Maybe they’re planning on focusing hard on Cornyn in the 2008 election, since they blew it with Hutchinson by not supporting a very viable democratic candidate in 2006. I can only hope.  This still doesn’t excuse them from ignoring Obama.  They have plenty of field reporters on staff.  Doing what I don’t know.

So, here we sit, again watching the new chair of the TDP behave in the same lazy fashion as his predecessor.  Picking and choosing what events are more important for photo ops. It would be interesting to see how the TDP acts if Hillary comes to town.

At this rate the second tier democratic candidates must really feel left out by the TDP. I am convinced that it will take all of us helping in whatever way we can, all of the democrats running. Candidates can not depend on the TDP since they are only consistent on failure.
