MDP Chair Brewer: The party is not ‘grassroots’

Eclectabad* has a great post on DailyKos on the difference between Wisconsin and Michigan. The post compares how the two Democratic parties are handling recall efforts. I’m jacking his images here to show the difference:

According to the article, the MDP will not get involved in any recalls, or in any efforts to repeal the EFM law …

At a Democratic club meeting in Berrien County this week, Brewer suggested that this effort should be a grassroots effort.

The hell?

When I was growing up, I was taught that the Democratic Party was the party of the people. So this is kind of a rude awakening for me.

And … it certainly demonstrates a difference in the philosophy of Mark Brewer and the philosophy of the Republicans. The Republicans represent organizations like conservative churches and chambers of commerce. In order for them to be “grassroots” they have to create tea party rallies and try to rewrite US history.

So if the Democrats aren’t the grassroots, who are we?

    Why is this guy still state chairman? Under his leadership, the Democrats whiffed the 2010 election, losing both houses of the legislature (one of which they held) and every statewide race.
    Even the Detroit "Lions," which are not known for their management acumen, cleaned house after their 0-16 season. The MDP needs to do the same.
