P.U.M.A. - Clinton Supporters The Share With The Right A Fear of an Obama Presidency

P.U.M.A. stands for "Party Unity My Ass." It is an organization launched and founded on facebook by Will Bower. The organization is primarily made up of Hillary Clinton supporters, taking shape soon after Mrs. Clinton officially suspended her campaign. P.U.M.A. is now a part of the much larger Just Say No Deal coalition of groups of like minded Democrats that have united as Hillary Clinton supporters, and are united in their opposition to Barack Obama's Democratic Party candidacy.

The formation of the group, out of frustration that Senator Hillary Clinton was not the Democratic nominee, has also led to $10 million collected to help pay down Hillary Clinton's political debt.

And, believe it or not, Will Bower and I something in common. Though I am a Christian Conservative, and he is a Clinton Democrat, we both share a strong dislike for Barack Obama's candidacy. Though he may not be real fond of John McCain because McCain is a Republican, and I am not fond of McCain because he is too moderate for me as a GOP candidate, our shared desire to stop a Barack Obama Presidency has united Will Bower and myself.

Bower, and his group, recognize Obama's inconsistencies in what he says, and how with Obama it is not about hope, change, and a departure from politics as usual. Barack Obama is the typical politician, saying what he thinks he should say in relation to which way the wind is blowing.

If Obama even has an inkling of an opportunity to gain the support of P.U.M.A. and "Just Say No Deal," he is going to have to do nearly the impossible to earn their support. Granted, Obama has been making some strides with Clinton’s supporters according to a recent poll, but Will Bower, the founder of PUMA, will not settle for Obama. In fact, Bower has openly said he will support McCain.

Bower formed PUMA to get other frustrated Clinton supporters to make a stance. This stance is to keep Obama from winning the U.S. Presidency. Bower is not just angry at Obama, he is angry at the whole Democratic Party.

And for those that say that Bower is whining and complaining that Clinton did not become the Democratic nominee, feel free to join Political Pistachio Radio tonight as we welcome Will Bower as our guest to discuss his group, and an insightful article "Backlash! 2 Million Angry Democrats Reject Obama?" written by Andrea Shea King on World Net Daily.
