Unity08: Six Months Late, Still No Timeline for American Agenda Project
Unity08 is a registered corporation which will nominate its own candidates for president and vice president a year from now, in July of 2008. At least that’s what it says it’s going to do. Will its claims match reality? No one can be sure, but we can check Unity08’s record of delivering on promises for a pretty good indication.
In the fall of 2006, Unity08 declared that a new website called American Agenda (at the web address of americanagenda08.com) would be publicly released in December of 2006 or January of 2007 in order to permit the American people to help draft a Unity08 platform.
What’s actually happened? Back in February, the promised website was hawking janitorial supplies. By March, americanagenda08.com had moved on to selling lawsuits about peanut butter. Halfway through April, Unity08’s American Agenda website is promoting online college degrees. Halfway through May, Unity08 had returned to peanut butter lawsuits and added claims about a “natural remedy” for “painful chronic fatigue.” Halfway through June, the American Agenda website offers visitors a 99 cent special on domain names. By last week, Unity08 had yanked the website altogether, and simply redirected traffic to Unity08.com.
Now, with the American Agenda project six months late and counting, Unity08 Vice President Bob Roth has let everybody know that when it comes to implementing the American Agenda project,
I don’t have a specific time line yet, but will let everyone how our discussion goes.
Maybe by next Christmas, they’ll have drawn up a flow chart for us that explains it all.
