McClatchy: Civil war on the left [Purp]

Speaking "Truth to Power", McClatchy peels away the happy talk BS and reports on something I've been saying for a while now -- OFA is essentially Obama's attempt to hijack whatever remains of the traditional Democrat party.

Obama’s new group, [PA: it ain't really "new", its the same old OFA] Organizing for Action, will focus on his policy agenda – not on electing Democratic candidates – by raising unlimited amounts of cash and accessing the president’s secret list of 20 million supporters, volunteers and donors.

The operation won’t share money, resources or the priceless Obama email list with the Democratic National Committee or campaign committees that help elect members of Congress, governors and legislators. And it has no plans to coordinate efforts, leading some Democrats to worry that it will take money and manpower away from the party as it heads into the 2014 elections for control of Congress.

If they'd had a couple of firing neurons to rub together, this whole cult of personality thing Obama's been working should have been setting off alarm bells among party oriented Dems. Obama is a political creature of a stripe the Dems have never really encountered before in their midst and they assumed he was one of the hive. That was a huge mistake in judgment. Kerry, Hillary, Mondale, Billy Jeff, etc WERE of the hive, this dude, not so much.
Kiss the ring baby, kiss the ring.
