CBS News on the DNC boycott

They talked to FireDogLake’s Jane Hamsher, who is a sponsor of the boycott.

She argued that the Obama administration is paying little attention to its base even as the opposition gins up support among the Republican base with events like the Tea Party protests.

“If you’re suppressing your base, and the other side is revving up theirs, and midterm elections are all about turning out the base, I sort of question what their strategy is here,” she said.

Hamsher has signed on to a financial boycott of the Democratic National Committee, Organizing for America (the DNC-run operation to mobilize Obama supporters) and the Obama campaign. The boycott was organized by Americablog’s John Aravosis and Joe Sudbay over what they see as President Obama and his party’s failure to keep its commitments to the gay and lesbian community.

Sign the Pledge, take a stand, don’t give to the DNC, OFA or the Obama campaign until the President keeps his promise. More on the campaign here.
