DNC and progressives are one and in other breaking news, water is wet
White House and Think Progress Merger Complete. Wonderful.
A senior Obama campaign official now runs CAP and Think Progress. A senior CAP strategist now helps run the 2012 campaign from inside the White House. The full embrace of CAP and Think Progress by the White House is just another sign that 2012 will be the nastiest campaign ever, with the truth the first victim.
The merger of the White House and Think Progress is just about complete. Think Progress is in control, or is the Obama campaign, or is there no difference anymore?
Jennifer Palmieri worked for various democrats and the White House in the past but then found a home at the Center for American Progress. Key word, of course, is progress. Progressives believe that humanity is on a progressive path; of ever evolving. We are evolving, they hope, into communists.
From their website:
As progressives, we believe America is a land of boundless opportunity, where people can better themselves, their children, their families, and their communities through education, hard work, and the freedom to climb the ladder of economic mobility.
We believe an open and effective government can champion the common good over narrow self-interest, harness the strength of our diversity, and secure the rights and safety of its people. And we believe our nation must always be a beacon of hope and strength to the rest of the world.
Progressives are idealistic enough to believe change is possible and practical enough to make it happen.
This is all rather pedestrian for anyone paying attention. Obama is a progressive (yawn), and he has the exact same agenda as those at the CAP.
Their website makes my head hurt.
