commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Daniel…..Hawaii Special: Who are the real Power Brokers in Hawaii? It's certainly not the DCCC or President Obama

Hello Folks and Good Morning!

A few weeks back when it became apparent that the Republicans could win the Hawaii Special Congressional Election I told “The Dog” that EVEN the President has NO POWER in his Home State.

He laughed at me and suggested that it can’t be true because Obama won the State with 74 % of the Vote in 2008 and the 1st Congressional District with 70 %. I told him about Senators Inouye and Akaka. I WAS RIGHT.

There are at least two People who have more Power in Hawaii then the entire Democratic Establishment including the DCCC and the President: Senators Inouye and Akaka.

Both combined have an age of 170 years. Both are 85 years old and Hawaiians are listening to them when it comes to Politics.

When Senator Daniel Ken Inouye (D-HI) throw his OUTSPOKEN Support behind State Senate President Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) you instantly knew Democrats were bracing for battle.

The DCCC made a colossal error of Judgement not throwing their Support behind Hanabusa. Now they should know that they HAVE TO LISTEN to these two Senior Senators.

Politico has this Piece here describing the Tensions between the DCCC and Inouye:


To the Dog:

Read the Full 3 Pages and you will know a lot of Insights from the “Aloha State”. Your claim Hanabusa won’t run against Case in a Democratic Primary in September is COMPLETELY FALSE if you read that Politico Piece. Inouye HIMSELF will make sure Hanabusa will win the Democratic Primary in September and face Djou in November. Hanabusa will then be elected Congresswoman and will succeed either Akaka in 2012 or Inouye in 2016. For the first Time EVER Democrats will have 4 Asian-Americans in Congress from Hawaii.

So, STOP BLAMING Hanabusa. BLAME INOUYE if you lose that Seat. Ha, the Hawaii Machine is more powerful then your President.

Listen very carefully….Hanabusa is NOT running in November…..

Your whole arguement is Ok…..so is Politico……

But the most important thing is November…and getting the seat back…..

Even Inouye has to deal with that……

  2. The Hawaii Filling Deadline isn’t until July 20th AND Unless Hanabusa’s Name ain’t on the Filling Paper after that Date she is still running.

    Why are you so worried about Hanabusa? Are you hostile against Asian-Americans?

    Do you think a Democratic Primary between Case and Hanabusa would become so nasty?

    TRUST me, Hanabusa will square off against Case for the September 18th Primary and win. Then she’ll face Djou in November and win.

    After all this is a PVI D + 11 District.

  3. Ok…..I like this!

    If you look back at me post on the race I have a picture of Case AND HIS WIFE!

    Check the picture!

    Gosh…I knew that was part of it…..

    I could argue the opposite with the senior senator from Hawaii….

    Does he discriminate against Anglo’s?

    And by Hanabusa NOT being in the race for November she will save her career..

    Inoyue could have a mad WH backing anybody but him ….And get screwed every time he asks for something which will put him in deep shit with fellow Hawaiians….

    He sits on the Senate Armed Services Committee..so he’s already getting into it with Gates …

    Daniel…this is gonna rough over there…

    Wait and see….

    Politicians have very LONG memories….
