Democratic organizers are still working in concert with the Occupy Wall Street movement, marking “the two-month anniversary of their heroic action” on Thursday with calls for solidarity.
“The 1 percent is truly afraid. They’ve tried everything to stop us — riot police, mass arrests, pepper spray, helicopters, police horses and endless Fox News lies — but we refuse to quit,” says Bob Fertik, founder of Democrats.com, the million-member grass-roots group that bills itself as “the aggressive progressives,” which has crafted the Progressive Caucus People’s Budget just in case the supercommittee can’t come up with anything in the next few days.
“There’s nothing we can’t achieve if we set our minds to it, and keep fighting. We’ve truly just begun,” Mr. Fertik says.
HEELS ON, GLOVES OFF
Republican women get their say about politics in the next 72 hours via Project GoPink’s three-day “Women Working for Change” conference at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center at the National Harbor. The change the ladies seek is more Republican women in office, and yes, their motto is indeed “Heels on, gloves off.”
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer and Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire are among the feminine luminaries at opening festivities on Thursday; Condoleezza Rice, Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, three lawmakers plus potential first ladies Callista Gingrich and Anita Perry ramp up the energy on Friday. There’s serious talk on tap. On the agenda: “Election day legality” and “domestic policy discussion.” See their plans here: www.wwfc2011.com.
