Lesson #1: The Left Never Stops, Rests, Relaxes, or Retreats.

The Left. Never. Gives. Up. This is from 2/26/09, but it's just another piece of info added to the huge body of evidence telling us that the Democrat Party is (and has been for about 6 years now) steering to the extreme leftward side of the political spectrum and pushing the throttle to "light speed". There are powerful and wealthy people out there who think the President is not enough of a leftist. This is from a blog about an article in the New York Times 2/26/09, but it is relevant because it tells us that it's possible the Democrat Party will continue to go to the extreme left (is that even possible?), especially if such new groups are effective.
Yippie! It seems Obama's glossed-over background story that painted him as a kind-hearted and cheritable "Community Organizer" has inspired the establishment of some entirely new leftist activist groups. Let's all look forward to being disgusted (Soros-willing) by the activities of the brand-new group, "Accountability Now"! Hurray! A.N., Allow me to welcome you to the dismal idiocy of American politics!
MoveOn, Kos, SEIU Push Dems More Left

Bloggers and Unions Join Forces to Push Democrats

Published: February 26, 2009

WASHINGTON — A group of liberal bloggers said it is teaming up with organized labor and MoveOn to form a political action committee that will seek to push the Democratic Party farther to the left.

Soliciting donations from their readers, the bloggers said they are planning to recruit liberal candidates for challenges against more centrist Democrats currently in Congress…

The new organization is in many ways the liberal equivalent of the Club for Growth, a conservative group that has financed primary challenges against Republicans it deems insufficiently dedicated to tax cuts and small government.

Organizers of the new group, to be called Accountability Now, said their intention is to enable Mr. Obama to seek more liberal policies without fear of losing support from the more conservative members of his party serving in Congress. But they did not rule out occasional friction with Mr. Obama, as well.
