The Incoming Wave Must Take Out a Walz, MN-CD1
[promoted from the diaries by haystack-good work in here eburke... more of these please folks?!] Barring a miracle (or unprecendented vote fraud) it would appear that the reign of Nancy “We Have to Pass the Bill to Find Out What’s in the Bill” Pelosi will be washed out to sea on November 2nd by a wave of voter discontent with the far-left policies of the Pelosi-Reid-Obama cabal. | Read More »
The short version is… it’s doable. Barely.
Obama owning the economy… any time now.
There are two passages that you need to consider from this Hill article about how the current administration continues to blame the previous administration for everything in creation, but particularly our current rotten economic situation – a year after the current administration promised to stop doing precisely that.

Gallup is no exception: This year’s low approval ratings for Congress are a potentially ominous sign for President Obama and the Democratic majority | Read More »
Businesses noticing Dems don’t like them very much?
While it’s pleasant to have the people that we’ve been trying to tell this finally get this: Mr. Seidenberg, officially Verizon’s CEO, moonlights as chairman of the influential Business Roundtable, the “association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies.” That would be the same Business Roundtable that woke up this past month to discover the White House has been playing it for a patsy. | Read More »
RCP: November continues to loom for Democrats.
Sean Trende of Real Clear Politics – an underrated blogger, possibly because RCP is such a good site generally that its bloggers get overshadowed – still holds his opinion from April that the House is going to flip big in November: The bottom line is that Democrats are on pace for an ugly November. They’re increasingly running out of time to change the dynamic, and | Read More »
