Coons vs. Coons in ‘Biden seat’ rhetoric!
Compare and contrast: “It’s often said that this is Joe Biden’s seat. It’s not. It’s Delaware’s seat.” This would have been a fine statement by Chris Coons (D-CAND, DE-SEN) in last Thursday’s debate*… if only he believed it. You see, one of the people that have often said that the seat in question was “Joe Biden’s seat” is… Chris Coons (D CAND, DE-SEN). We cannot | Read More »
QotD, Not Senator Ma’am’s Day Edition.
So, there has been a veritable litany of bad stimulus-related news lately for California: 12.4% unemployment 110 million in stimulus money in LA = 55 jobs, thanks to, of course, red tape National trust in the administration’s ability to help the economy now underwater, 30/33 …and Barbara Boxer’s reaction? It would’ve been worse without the stimulus (not a direct quote*). Which caused ABC7 political analyst | Read More »
NH-GOV: Stephen (R) now within MoE.
Rasmussen shows a fairly unexpected primary bounce in NH for GOP gubernatorial candidate John Stephen: the race has gone from 50/39 Lynch/Stephen to 48/46 Lynch/Stephen. Polling for this race has been somewhat sparse, but it should be noted that there has been notable movement towards in both the Rasmussen and PPP polls. With the NH-SEN and NH-02 (no good recent polling on NH-01) races showing | Read More »

Reid’s Pet (D CAND, DE-SEN) broke promise, raised taxes.
Via The Other McCain and The Tech Guy we see this helpful reminder; as New Castle County’s head official Democratic Senatorial candidate Chris Coons managed to somehow turn an inherited surplus and a firm no-tax pledge into multiple violations of said pledge and Delaware’s most populous county headed towards bankruptcy (by his own admission). And Coons had to preemptively address the tax issue, which is | Read More »
Sen. Michael Bennet (D, CO): Stimulus hypocrite.
Either that, or he’s lost all situational awareness of the relationship between cause and effect. August, 2010: …not only do we have $12 trillion in debt, not only have we mortgaged ourselves to the Chinese, but the tragedy of it is, we have absolutely nothing to show for it, absolutely nothing to show for it. We haven’t invested in our roads, our bridges, our transportation, | Read More »
Maurice Hinchey’s (D, NY-22) Spring-time with Castro.
Because, you know, what’s a little grinding poverty, utter failure of an economic system, routine and widespread violation of human rights, and general nastiness when compared against the need to keep a House seat?
Rick Boucher (D, VA-09) buys new car with campaign money.
Via… Not Larry Sabato, who cannot be happy about the fact that his fully-justified anger at seeing a 14 term Democratic Congressman use campaign finance money to buy himself a nice, new car is now showing up as yet another reason why to vote for Rick Boucher’s opponent Morgan Griffith, who is not using special-interest money to buy himself shiny new automobiles. I know this | Read More »
Charlie Rangel (D, NY-15): ‘Obama needs people like me…’
‘…more than ever': Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com Several thoughts:
Meet Chris Coons (D CAND, DE-SEN). Harry Reid’s… pet.
Understandable that this would be said of Chris Coons: after all, look at that happy grin! That marvelous posture! That glossy coat… pelt… erm, skin! Admittedly, this isn’t the best example of the breed in the smarts department – Coons admitted to being a Marxist in his more hirsute days, and we all know that Marxism is intellectualism for stupid people – but smarts aren’t | Read More »
Ovide Lamontagne (NH) shows folks how it’s done.
He has conceded the primary, will not seek a recount, and has endorsed Kelly Ayotte (video here). Ayotte has accepted the concession with equal grace and politeness, calling Lamontagne a gentleman and a principled conservative (H/T: Hot Air). From now on, it’s all about defeating Paul Hodes in the general election. Would that more politicians acted this properly when they lose a primary. Michael Castle | Read More »
The DNC’s new pizza site logo.
It might have happened yesterday that you might have noticed what was promised to be a ‘major’ announcement by the Democratic party for today. I say ‘might:’ Tim Kaine showed his usual impeccable timing by trying to start a buzz on the eve of what turned out to be two of the most interesting Republican Senate primary contests this cycle*, so you probably missed it. | Read More »
Well, NH-SEN turned out to be pretty exciting.
With 85% of the vote in Kelly Ayotte is about 900 votes ahead of Ovide Lamontagne, after an evening where she was behind in the vote. Which is easily close enough for a recount, no matter who wins – and, honestly, this is one time where it really is still up in the air. My personal inclination would be to counsel whoever ends up in | Read More »
