Eric and Barry to lead post-Trump redistricting campaign
It's been a tradition in American politics, with only a few exceptions over the years, that a President and his #2 quietly fade into retirement or lend themselves to low visual public service. But when you're a Democrat with ego is as large as a house and you have a need to somehow remain relevant, like fat boy Al Gore, or your old lady is running for president like Bill Clinton, you have the need to remain visible and continue to irritate the public.
Barky Obama has decided to remain in DC after his term ends, and in between golf outings and trips to Man Country, is teaming up with disgraced former Attorney General Eric Holder to make sure their type of Chicago politics will linger on; expand the crony political machine, get more people hooked on welfare of various forms, lawyer up and make sure that voter ID, a simple anti-corruption effort requirement, is fought at every turn.
With an outsider like Donald Trump making inroads with the American electorate, the Alinskyites aren’t just going to go away. They want to infect all of our system with their urban machine tactics. Big government. Big dependence. Big politicians. Big corruption. It's the Chicago way.
"As Democrats aim to capitalize on this year’s Republican turmoil and start building back their own decimated bench, former Attorney General Eric Holder will chair a new umbrella group focused on redistricting reform—with the aim of taking on the gerrymandering that’s left the party behind in statehouses and made winning a House majority far more difficult.
The new group, called the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, was developed in close consultation with the White House. President Barack Obama himself has now identified the group—which will coordinate campaign strategy, direct fundraising, organize ballot initiatives and put together legal challenges to state redistricting maps—as the main focus of his political activity once he leaves office." - Read MoreThis group is not about “taking on gerrymandering.” It’s all about gerrymandering.
