South Carolina’s unexpected Democratic nominee for the US Senate, mystery man Alvin Greene, says he wants to play golf with Barack Obama. But in Texas, another surprise Democratic primary winner, congressional nominee Kesha Rogers, wants to impeach the President. So while South Carolina party officials are still unsure of what to do about Greene’s success at the ballot box, Texas Democrats have no such reservations — they wasted little time in casting Rogers into exile and offering no support or recognition of her campaign to win what once was Republican Majority Leader Tom DeLay’s old seat.
Rogers is described as a full-time activist in the Lyndon LaRouche Youth Movement, but it’s statements like this from Rogers’ website that are getting her shunned from the DNC water cooler:
As I have repeatedly stated, Barack Obama is a threat to the continued existence of the United States, and he must be impeached, or resign. The real question is, what will we replace his bad policies with? Real patriots understand the need to think ahead, to create a meaningful purpose and direction as we rebuild our nation. We know that the next several generations need a better world to live in, which can only be a Post-Obama World.
One theory, according to a Democratic Party insider, is Rogers benefitted from her name being in the top position on the Fort Bend County ballot, where African-American Democratic interest was high in two local races. But Rogers rejects that notion. “I went to senior citizens centers. I was knocking on doors everywhere — everyone knew my positions, ” she told TIME. “I don’t think the Democratic Party leadership is getting it. The people continue to see more and more economic devastation and they don’t see any real leadership.” And for now, the party leadership will pretend that it can’t see Rogers.
I know there are plenty of voters who are only after free goodies in taxpayer-supported Shangri-La, but if we’re to believe the Democrats, they’ve de-motivated a hunk of their voting base to such a degree that they’re too lazy to even read past the first name on the ballot (Xavier Becerra was elected on an alphabetized-by-first-name ballot, but only because most of his voters were holding the card upside-down).
It was also alleged in South Carolina that Alvin Greene scored some female votes because his name reminded women of singer Al Green. In a related story, a dozen Democrat congressional candidates just legally changed their names to “Barry White.”
What’ll be the “name sounded like…” explanation for Kesha Rogers? That her name reminded Texans of Roger(s) Staubach?
If the Democrats are serious about wanting to derail the campaigns of Greene and Rogers, there’s only one thing they need to do: Get President Obama to go campaign for them immediately!
If Rogers and Greene were Republicans, astute observers on the left side of the aisle would by now have taken full notice that both of these candidates are non-white and accused the people trying to drive them from the party of racism. However, since these candidates are not Republicans, we can automatically eliminate race as a motivating factor for the party leadership’s actions.
Is Rogers the “Alvin Greene of Texas”? Nah. For starters, Rogers talks, and as far as what is coming out of her mouth, the Democrats would like her to be a lot more like Alvin Greene.
