Hey Maryland Democrats: Come Get Some

The apparatchiks of the Maryland Democratic Party are initiating a “Media Monitoring & Rapid Response Program

According to an internal email and Power Point file “obtained” (read handed to) by Maryland Politics Watch, the Dems built a team of volunteers throughout the state to monitor all manner of media outlets and “respond” if necessary.

The MDP [Maryland Democratic Party] Communications Staff will - in collaboration with other Democratic representatives - identify needs for a media response or will proactively amplify our message as it pertains to the “news of the day” by activating one or more of following teams:

LTE (letters to the editor) Teams
Radio Call-in and TV Monitoring and Response Teams
Online Publication Comment Posting Teams
Electronic Media and Blog response Teams

MDP Communications Staff will send relevant policy information and talking points to Regional/County Leaders – who will, in turn, relay that information to our media Teams. Team members will use the information to perform their assigned task, and report any progress and action to their County Leader who will relay that information to MDP Communications Staff.Rapid response volunteers will constantly monitor their assigned form of media.

Upon the discovery of an article, blog, online publication comment(s) or radio segment that they (the team member ) believe requires a response, will immediately send an email to their County Leader who will in turn, relay the information to MDP Communications Staff.

From that point, after consultation with all appropriate parties, the MDP Communications Staff will determine whether to gather talking points and data for a response to be generated. If a response is needed, then the process mentioned above (“From Annapolis to the ground”) will begin.

Glad to know Maryland Democrats are pouring all the corporate money they receive into playing Big Brother. I’m sure top two state lobbying firms Rifkin, Livingston, Levitan & Silver and Alexander & Cleaver are glad the $63,000 they gave will go to salving bruised Democrat sensibilities over that fact that someone dared disagree with them. We are at least sure that the Dem’s former Executive Director, Josh White (MD4Bush’s old boss) turned RLL&S lobbyist probably didn’t mind this foray into the lives of others.

While on it’s face this Democratic political police force may look like an improvement over their old bologna sandwich, note that it’s staffed by their Social Media Director, the laughable Isaac Salazar.

In his short stint, Salazar has managed to beclown himself on health care issues, slandered the Annapolis tea party protesters as racists, all the while patting himself on the back for his petulance.

While we are not proponents of the infinite monkey theorem, the Democrats would be better served this elections season by bringing in a million monkeys banging away on typewriters.

So, on behalf of all of us at Red Maryland: COME GET SOME!

I am a Democrat of the Democratic Party, and I do not agree with our Democratic Party representatives in Washington.

Many of us are now ashamed to be Democrats. More than that, we have come to fear our own Democratic Party. Hatred and corruption - the roots of socialism - are on the march as they have never been before, and leading this march is our Democratic Party. Increasingly, mainstream Democrats are uncomfortable with what they are seeing in our party. All the more, we know it is dangerous.

We as Democrats are marching in a parade with people Harry Truman or even Jack Kennedy would not recognize - socialist (also know as progressives) who think that Western civilization began in 1969. Strangely, without meaning to, we the mainstream Democrats find ourselves representing this "socialist movement." However, for the "socialist" within our Democratic Party, there is nothing so strange about it. Socialist have always sought to leverage corruption for the sake of power.

Without doubt a large majority of our Democratic Party representatives in Washington are tainted by corruption, and the liberals among us are supporting the ideologies of progressives with their agendas based on moving our Nation deeper into a socialist form of government. This is a real threat to everything we hold sacred in America, and they are gaining evermore control over our Democratic Party, our Nation, and the American people.

As a result, our Democratic Party has already lost the equivalent of every member we have acquired over the past seven years or more, and many of them are now supporting the tea party. More importantly, a recent Newsweek cover declared, "We are all socialists now."

Meanwhile our middle-class families are looking for more than empty promises. They want to go back to work. And they want our Democratic Party representatives who run Washington to stop pursuing a big government, big spending agenda that includes a government takeover of health care, stimulus bills, a new national energy tax and taxpayer-funded bailouts.

In spite of everything our Democratic Party representatives in Washington will borrow $1.6 trillion this year, or about $15,000 for every household in the country. Over the next 10 years our federal government is expected to borrow an additional $8.5 trillion, and this is on top of the 12 trillion we currently owe. These figures are beyond being enormous, especially since we already pay one in seven dollars in interest.

Thank you, and God bless America
