One of President Barack Obama’s former top campaign advisers is â€œlosing patienceâ€ with the White House, he told POLITICO Tuesday morning, as frustrations among the president’s liberal allies crest over issues from health care legislation to gay rights.
Obama, he said, â€œneeds to be more bold in his leadership.â€
Like I have said before, I couldn’t stand GW, but one thing I liked about his leadership style was when he said he was going to do something, he did it (usually it was wrong) but nonetheless it got done. I think Obama is tough when he wants to be. He needs to stop worrying about 2012 and start thinking about America.
Hildebrand was a singular figure as Obama’s campaign bus rolled through the hills of Iowa, a goateed, soft-spoken, and sometimes mischievous gay man who lived in sleepy Sioux Falls, right across the state line.
WTF? Mischevious? What does that mean? I’m still puzzled by that statement. I have never met Steve personally, but know who he is, he lives close to me and I see him quite a bit around town. He often has a half-cocked smile on his face, but I have never thought of him as ‘mischevious’. In fact, he often looks like he is deep in thought. Maybe I need to talk to some local ‘Gays’ who know him. As for the statement about Sioux Falls being ‘Sleepy’ that couldn’t be more true. It is the number one word I use to describe this town, that and ‘boring’. There are some benefits to that though, don’t ask, I’m still working on that list.
Hildebrand said in San Diego that he had demanded that his own congresswoman, South Dakota Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, return his contribution after she voted for a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage, and that he would vote for a Republican against her next year.
What’s the difference Steve? We all know Steffy is a Republican now, doesn’t matter who you vote for.
But this statment gave me a good chuckle;
Hildebrand, who worked for a stretch for Rep. Kendrick Meek’s bid for a Florida Senate Seat, is no longer working on that campaign, and said he’d returned home to focus on issue campaigns, rather than candidates.
So what is Mike Heuther? A CANDIDATE or an ISSUE? Just curious.
