Democrat advantage a little overrated

Quinnipiac University released a poll yesterday that has incumbent Ted Strickland leading 43-38 over GOP challenger John Kasich in the gubernatorial race and has both Lee Fisher and Jennifer Brunner leading Rob Portman in the Senate race to succeed George Voinovichby 4 and 1 point(s), respectively.

Of course this news makes Democrats excited, but Republicans shouldn’t be too disappointed. In both races, there are a  very high number of undecideds, so there is a lot of room for Kasich and Portman to make up ground. In the race for governor, Strickland has been under 50% support for a long time and has not been moving, which is “typically worrisome signs for an incumbent” according to the pollster.

The race for the Senate is not much different. There is also a high number of undecideds in the race, but the plus for Portman is that by a 46-44 margin, Ohioans do not want a Senator that supports Obama’s policies.

So there is a long time from now to November,and that means a long time for mud to be thrown on the challengers. To get an idea of the hack-etry that Kasich and Portman will be up against, look here and here.

Chris Reichert =/= all Tea Party supporters

There are many thoughts that have stood out to me in this Healthcare debate. Things like, ‘elections have consequences’ or that Democrat leadership can pea on your leg and tell you it’s raining with the straightest faces. One thing has impressed me the most, and that is the passion of the American people. I was worried that with the last couple of years that many of us were just worn out, but all across this country, thousands of people protested what they rightly believed was a reckless takeover of 1/6 of the economy by the Federal Government. However, when this passion is not under control, people can get stupid and embarrass themselves. There were stories of alleged gay and racial slurs hurled at Barney Frank and members of the Congressional Black Caucus. There are stories of Congress members and their families getting threatened with physical harm.

Another story, however, has also gained notoriety, and it’s right here in Central Ohio. In a protest outside the district office of U.S. Representative Mary Jo Kilroy (D-OH), a Columbus resident berated and threw money at a man suffering from Parkinson’s disease:

The man’s name: Chris Reichert, a Columbus resident. In an article printed in the Wednesday issue of the Dispatch, Reichert says that “I snapped. I absolutely snapped and I can’t explain it any other way”.

This guy has gone through enough. The embarrassment of having your jackass moment taped and forever in the internets is punishment enough.

But of course, to those on the left, the acts of one represent the acts of all. One blogger from the left, Plunderbund, shared his opinion this way:

Thanks Chris Reichert for proving us right afterall about the negative effects of right wing talk radio that creates caustic political environments that cause people like you to do things you’d never think of doing

As I said in response, I listen/watch conservative media. Hannity, Ingraham, Malkin, Rush. And I never would have done that, and many others would not either. In fact, I believe that Mr. Plunderbund missed this:

Reichert then stepped from the crowd, bent down, pointed a finger in Letcher’s face and as he tossed a pair of dollar bills yelled, “I’ll pay for this guy. Here you go. Let’s start a pot, I’ll pay for you. I’ll decide when to give you money. Here. Here’s another one.”

Organizers on both sides of the debate quickly condemned the actions of Reichert and the other man, who still has not been identified…..

The Tea Party movement fight against more government, more taxes, and more waste is a noble cause; anyone that does what has been alleged has no place in the movement and should be shunned, and have been. The Left is lumping the kooks with everyday folks to try and discredit it; so far, it is not working. Those that support the movement need to continue to be vocal and oppose the extremists because that is not the support this cause needs.

Breaking: Back to square one on Healthcare!

I just saw this one on Politico and Fox News: House Healthcare sham must go back to the House.

Looks like their voodoo math has come to haunt them, since the parts of the bill that deal with Pell Grants (in a healthcare bill?) are in violation of rules. It must go back to Congress to be removed.

Mr. Boehner, rarely does one get another chance like this. Hopefully you prove that you are up to the challenge and can bring victory!

A glorious day for America

Bart Stupak, principled man of character

It’s been a long time since my last post, which happened to be on this topic. A lot of things occurred since.

With the historic election of Scott Brown in Massachussetts, many people (myself especially) thought that this plan was DOA and the despicable backroom deals that came with it. However, I was wrong.

On March 21st and with a 219-212 vote, the United States federal government is now in charge of 1/6 of the economy.

Special thanks go to Bart Stupak, another politician along the lines of Ben Nelson and Mary Landrieu that have discarded their principles for a very short-term gain that will bring a lifetime of problems with the passing of this bill. Stupak, who is a “pro-life” Democrat, had said that he would not support this bill unless it has language from his amendment (known as the Stupak-Pitts amendment) in it that specifically protects the Hyde Amendment (prohibits the use of federal funds for abortion). Yesterday, his stance suddenly changed. At 4 p.m. Sunday, he and a group of supposedly pro-life Dems announced that they will support it after receiving assurances from President Obama that he will sign an executive order that will affirm it.

Yep. An executive order. Would someone like to ask Mr. Stupak and his crew if the Mexico City Policy is still in effect?

Abortion was not my main concern with this bill, it was the questionable math that the Democrats came up with to create this point. And although the CBO did say it would save money, they also acknowledge that past ten years the numbers are really uncertain.

CNN has a good summary of how we will pay for it in this article. Higher taxes and forced purchasing of insurance will occur, but here is what stands out to me:

In the first 10 years, the program it is expected to take in more money than it pays out, which is why the CBO says it would reduce the deficit by $70 billion. But in the second decade and beyond, the program is projected to pay out more than it takes in, and will therefore contribute to the deficit.

That’s why some say that the CLASS Act is a budget gimmick that will not contribute to the potential of health reform to reduce the deficit.

When this occurs, who do you think will be paying for it? That’s right, you the taxpayer.

Senate Republicans will fight the noble fight, but in the end, the left has won. We are moving closer to a welfare state than ever before, and we know how that will turnout.

Senate votes to screw over America’s future

Well, it’s official. By a 60-39 vote, the Democratic Majority passed healthcare “reform”. A vote won by certain Senators (see Nelson, Ben and Landrieu, Mary) being bought by the White House using taxpayer dollars. A vote that will FORCE all Americans to buy health insurance. A vote on a bill that the public does not know the full details of. A vote that has many planks that cannot be repealed (thanks to the most biased news network for informing us of that information).

I hope those that are in the age group of 18-35 are happy with their Obama vote. They are the ones that will be part of the many screwed in this.

Merry Christmas!

Obama is a hypocrite and a liar.

Stimulus bill passes, filled with earmarks. Obama will sign it.

More tax problems for Obamessiah

U.S. Trade Representative-designate Ron Kirk

According to Politico, U.S Trade Representative Ron Kirk, is another Obama Cabinet nominee that has tax problems, now “agreeing” to pay almost $10,000 in back taxes.

This is quite possibly the worst vetting that I have ever seen from a president. And the worst part is, the Democrats with the tax problems (Daschle, Geitner, Kirk) would have a huge say on ecomomic policy and the direction (left) that it would go.

This would be hilarious if I weren’t so scared.

Idiot liberals ID wrong man as Obama rally heckler

Liberal bloggers from Buckeye State Blog and Blogger Interrupted were up in arms after a heckler was able to get credentials for a Obama rally in Berea this week and got the Democratic nominee to say the Pledge of Allegiance.  However BSB took it further and published the guys personal contact information.

Or so they thought.

The Plain Dealer reported that the info posted was not of the actual heckler, but a random 22 year old guy that just lives in the same town.

I loved the “apology” that came from a blogger known as “Plunderbund”:

Eric Vessels, whose blog is Plunderbund, apologized for the mistake, but defended posting what he thought was the photographer’s number.

“I want people to think before they do these kinds of disruptions,” he said. “I don’t intend people to call and harass. I don’t ever ask them to do that.”

And one of the biggest antagonists that the Ohio liberal blogosphere has to offer, Tim Russo of Blogger Interrupted, had no comment.

I saw the video; the guy was annoying and dumb. If I were at a McCain event and some 9-11 Truthers jeered, I would be pissed. But guess what? That is our right as Americans and that guy had a right also, especially since it’s obvious the Obama campaign will give credentials to anyone!

What that guy did, however, did not warrant the posting of personal info. How would some of those bloggers feel if a conservative posted their info?

This is why access should be limited to this info. When you give idiots this ability and freedom to get NOYB info, they do dumb things with it and an innocent person gets harassed.

BTW, those offending bloggers should personally contact this guy and apologize.

And do more thorough research.

Since Democrats love to say “100 years!”

McCain explains (again) his ‘100 years in Iraq’ comment to Dispatch reporters.

Read it very carefully, Democrats.

Pryce-Kilroy II is gonna be fun.

I found this article today, and it talked about the rematch between Rep. Deborah Pryce (R-UA) and Franklin Co. Commissioner Mary Jo Kilroy. Democrats still think that they have a shot at this seat. The ’06 midterm elections had the worst atmosphere for any party that I can remember and Pryce still beat her, so I am completely confident in the congresswoman that she will win again and hopefully end Mary Jo’s political career.
