Blame Game Politics: Local Democrats' Adopt National Party's Blame Game Political Strategy

News Release from Hawaii Republican Party

HONOLULU - Falling in line with the national Democrat party, Hawaii Democrats have once again decided that they are not running on a platform of issues. Instead, they launched into what was nothing more than a narcissistic tirade of personal assaults against individual Republican candidates. Over the past two days, the Hawaii State Democrat Convention has been a circus of internal procedural squabbling, sprinkled with baseless attacks on proven leaders like former Gov. Linda Lingle. This is not the pool of candidates the people of Hawaii deserve to select from in deciding who to send to our state Capitol or Washington,D.C.

Just a few weeks ago, the Hawaii Republican Party held its annual Convention and the focused discussions collectively rallied delegates and guests behind candidates who are ready to lead our state and country back to prosperity. Our candidates spoke, at no cost, about how the problems our country faces are American problems, and solving them will require a commitment to finding bipartisan solutions. As our candidates were focused on solving America's problems, they neither had time nor concern to take derogatory swipes about members of the Democrat party. The DC-style politics evident in Hawaii's Democrat Party has done nothing but perpetuate the partisan gridlock in our nation's Capitol. We need leaders who rise above party politics, speak about issues important to Hawaii's people, and work with whoever necessary to get our state and country back on track.
