Don't forget, Mark Critz likes Obamacare.
Even Democrats see it;
Vote for Dubie.
October 30, 2010
Because this is a view of the alternative;
is better than this;
Seriously, this guy??
How about a real change? How about helping out Charlie Baker so he can work for Massachusetts?

He also discusses integrity;
And why Ted Strickland is not the man for the job;
Think 1994 and the Contract with America. Think of the Republican tide. Now think of history repeating itself, and do your part to make it happen America. Catch the wave. Go out and vote in the midterm elections.

The race to be Minnesota's next governor remains a close one with Republican Tom Emmer running neck-and-neck with Democrat Mark Dayton, while support for Independence Party candidate Tom Horner appears to be fading.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds Dayton still barely ahead, with 44% support to Emmer's 41%. Horner now picks up 10% of the vote.
And that means better education;
and most importantly, he's no Mark Dayton;
Want to know more?
His opponent, on the other hand, is a big spender of taxpayer money.

You DO remember Alan Grayson, don't you?
Now why have that, when you can have this;
From a candidate who understands the reality of the math;
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Aloha State shows Abercrombie picking up 49% of the vote, while Aiona earns 47% support. One percent (1%) prefer some other candidate in the race, and four percent (4%) are undecided.
These numbers move the race from Solid Democrat to a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Gubernatorial Scorecard.
In late June, Abercrombie held a 58% to 32% lead over Aiona. The first survey of the race in March found Abercrombie, a congressman for nearly 20 years who stepped down to run for governor, leading Aiona 54% to 31%.
and also the similarities with other states when it comes to wasteful government spending.
she's a common sense leader. California really needs that. As opposed to this;
He's targeting the national debt.
He's a Tea Party guy;
Please vote for Bob McConnell on November 2nd.
Why vote for West? There's this;
And reason to eschew his opponent, Klein;
October 26, 2010
Matt Doheny really needs your help. He gets it;
His opponent, does not;
Some views on immigration;
Then there's this;
Whereas she is clear in what she stands for;
And clear on the big differences between the two of them.
Vote for Roby, and if you can, volunteer to help her campaign out.
The race has tightened since late September when Malloy held a 10-point lead. Earlier this month, he held a narrower 49% to 44% edge over Foley. In surveys dating back to May, Malloy has consistently been the front-runner, with support ranging from 38% to 50%. Foley, in those same surveys, has earned 33% to 45% of the vote.
He understands that jobs are the most important issue right now.
And Dan Malloy, his opponent, is focused on green energy stuff. Why now Dan?

TORONTO (Reuters) - Toronto voters on Monday elected conservative Rob Ford as mayor of Canada's biggest city, tilting away from their recent liberal leanings and opting for his platform of small government, fewer taxes and big spending cuts.
Ford, a suburban city councilor and businessman, defeated George Smitherman, a former Liberal Party deputy premier of Toronto's province of Ontario. Ford was victorious on a platform that promised to "stop the gravy train at City Hall."
Ford drew 47 percent of the vote, compared to Smitherman's 35 percent, with no other candidate getting more than 12 percent, according to official vote tallies.
"People just kept telling me ... you're the only one that I trust that can get this City Hall spending under control," Ford, who was supported by provincial and federal Conservative Party figures, said on local television following his victory.
He understands the real world;
He understands the math;
And he understands what he's up against.
Help him out.
He's also the more in touch candidate with Alaska's conservatives;
And Murkowski is soft, and getting softer on Obamacare repeal;
Not to mention the fact that she's having a hissy fit;
Here's one reason why.
And then there's this.
And this bit of uncomfortableness;

Toomey gets it;
He knows the truth behind the economic situation;
And of course, Sestak is not the greatest of choices.
This says it all;
But here's some bonus reasons;
and of course this;
where he really meant to say this;
October 23, 2010
And of course this;
This is a very important election for Nevada and for America. Please do your part to help out Sharron Angle.
Then there's this.
And he says taxes are um, voluntary??

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is crediting its anti-recession stimulus plan with creating up to 50,000 jobs on dozens of wind farms, even though many of those wind farms were built before the stimulus money began to flow or even before President Barack Obama was inaugurated.
Out of 70 major wind farms that received the $4.4 billion in federal energy grants through the stimulus program, public records show that 11, which received a total of $600 million, erected their wind towers during the Bush administration. And a total of 19 wind farms, which received $1.3 billion, were built before any of the stimulus money was distributed. ( See a list of the projects here.)
Yet all the jobs at these wind farms are counted in the administration's figures for jobs created by the stimulus.

Likely voters in battleground districts see extremists as having a more dominant influence over the Democratic Party than they do over the GOP.
This result comes from The Hill 2010 Midterm Election Poll, which found that 44 percent of likely voters say the Democratic Party is more dominated by its extreme elements, whereas 37 percent say it’s the Republican Party that is more dominated by extremists.
The revelations in a survey of 10 toss-up congressional districts across the country point to problems for Democrats, who are trying to motivate a disillusioned base and appeal to independents moving to the GOP ahead of the Nov. 2 election.
The U.S. Justice Department is investigating whether the state of Illinois missed the deadline for mailing absentee ballots to members of the military and other overseas American voters as part of a new federal overseas voting law.
Cris Cray, Director of Legislation at the Illinois State Board of Elections, says not all of Illinois' 110 jurisdictions were compliant with the 2009 Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act (MOVE).
The law requires every state to mail their absentee ballots 45 days prior to Election Day to overseas troops, government employees and other Americans who want to vote from abroad.Cray says she is currently compiling data from each of Illinois' jurisdictions to determine which were compliant and which were delinquent. Cray said it's possible the ballots may not be counted because the state was tardy in sending them out...
Overseas ballots could be a deciding factor in Illinois' mid-term elections where recent polls show a tight U.S. Senate race between Republican Mark Kirk and Democrat Alexi Giannoulias. Republican Bill Brady has an edge over Democratic incumbent Pat Quinn for governor.

Mr. Soros, a champion of liberal causes, has been directing his money to groups that work on health care and the environment, rather than electoral politics. Asked if the prospect of Republican control of one or both houses of Congress concerned him, he said: “It does, because I think they are pushing the wrong policies, but I’m not in a position to stop it. I don’t believe in standing in the way of an avalanche.”

Is this another instance of abandoning a sinking ship? The article raises the question of the Woodward book and possible comments from Jones. Is it a forced resignation? Is the President that thin skinned that he would let someone go at a politically inconvenient moment? Talk about bad timing. This sends an abandon ship signal, exactly the opposite of what the President needs to do as he tries to rally his base for the midterms. Good news for conservatives.
What other reason could be for this? Pure speculation, but could it be in relation to an October surprise that involves an attack on Iran? General Jones perhaps disagreed with it.
Aside from the geopolitical implications for America, Jones is not known to be a friend of Israel.
It is possible he doesn't want to see them helped, or he'd rather see them blamed than America for a strike at Iran's nuclear program.
Whatever the case, the timing is just plain odd.

|Food Stamps. Tasty.|
The number of Americans receiving food stamps rose to a record 41.8 million in July as the jobless rate hovered near a 27-year high, the government said.
Recipients of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program subsidies for food purchases jumped 18 percent from a year earlier and increased 1.4 percent from June, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said today in a statement on its website. Participation has set records for 20 straight months.
