… What Happens Next ? [#with EMailGate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,May 6th,2016

.. good question ? ..

.. the Clintonoids have to get out in front of this .

.. also , if miz Hillary is smart , she needs a top – notch crisis – management operation . She had better get off her butt , and get it together , and fast . If she does not , then the political questions about her ability to win are only going to grow …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,March 31st,2016

.. if you want to be POTUS , act like it . Do Not use the current occupant of the office as a guide . His example is definitely not one to follow …

… What werre the NV Dems Thinking [#absentee ballot process][#military][#US]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 24th,2016

.. getting absentee ballots to our overseas military is never easy . You have to think ahead , and to plan ahead in order for them to get their ballots in enough time for them to be able to vote , especially without being rushed . Then it takes more time for their ballots to be returned ..

.. then you have a caucus . That presents even more headaches ..

.. Caucuses are meetings . People take time out of their day [or evening] to stand up for their political principles , and those candidates whom they might support . However , this becomes a very big issue for the uniformed military ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. in other countries , their military services are rife with politics . As a result , the professional level of theose nation ‘ s armed services suffers as a result . our does not , and does not permit it . But it does permit [and encourage ] people to vote …

.. but what the DemOCrap party in Nevada did in their recent caucus is a disgrace . They had our troops in the field spend 3 to 4 hours on the phone [on an international call] to participate in their local caucus . Are you kidding ?? Those calls are extraordinarily expensive , as well as time – wasting . Be real ..

.. The Nevada GOP was far more practical . They did things the olde fashioned way . They had our troops participate with their candidate preferences [in the caucus] with an absentee ballot . Simple enough ..

.. There has to be a better way . Maybe the Nevada GOP Already has it ..

… Nicely done , GOP [#SC primary]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 24th,2016

.. there are some very good observers of the American political scene . Yeah , Karl Rove is one o f them . Nobody sweats out the minutae of the details like Rove does . Joe Trippi and Pat Caddell [for the Dems] are a close second and third . Thankfully , all 3 work at FNC ..

.. where it comes to the overall picture , nobody is better at it then Michael Barone . As usual , he nailed it again in SC ..

.. [h/t – washingtonExamiiner.com]..
.. [link] to the blog column …

the GOP turnout in sc primary blew the doors off the charts . It set a record , at 718,000 [appx] ..

.. Wow ! .. Nicely Done ! ..

… the Results of the Early States affect Us here [#Ohio]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,February 23rd,2016

.. in my home state , early voting has begun . I have sent for my in – mail absentee ballot . It should be here at my home in a few days ..

.. you can do that [by mail] up to the day before the election [in our case , March 15th] . By then , you have to then do it the old – fashioned way [in person] ..

.. between now and then [February 17th and March 15th] , you can vote in person absentee at our state ‘ s individual county boards of elections . You can take your time , but not forever . other people will also want to take advantage of the electoral process ..

.. [h/t — ncsl.ORG]..
.. [link] to the website …

.. there are still quite a few states that do not have this voting feature . It has changed campaigning , no doubt . Whether it has changed campaigning for the better is still open to a great deal of question ..

… Miz Hillary won [#NV caucus]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,February 22nd,2016

.. yes , she won , But it was far , far closer than anyone would have predicted just one or two months ago ..

.. she won a narrow majority of state convention delegates 52% to 48% . As soon as the beginning of the year , MiZ Hillary was leading in Nevada [the Silver State] by almost 30 percentage points . Yes , it was [then] that large a lead . Yet she let most of it slip away …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post news …

.. it also shows that Miz Hillary has some serious problems . Trust & Honesty , to be specific ..

… And These Idiots think That the Dems Will Win (?) in 2016 [#miz Hillary]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 29th,2016

.. a scandal like this will hang around Miz Hillary ‘ s neck for the length of this campaign ..

.. she will not likely have to worry about a criminal investigation . Not now , at least . The ObamaCraps will see to that , at the very least . However , the pressure to name an Independent Counsel will be relentless . The LameStream Media will try to cover for her , but …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. they are not enamoured of her the way that they were of POTUS or the way that they were of Mr. Bill . Mr. Bill is a genius of a politician , and still is one . POTUS is losing it , but has not totally lost it , as of yet . Miz Hillary is something else …

.. Miz Hillary has a terminal case of politician ‘ s tin ear . When you have that , effectively [in politics] , you are done …

… You can Tell the DemoCrap ‘ s Idea of Priorities [#Issues][#Campaign 2016]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,January 19th,2016

.. Yes , the DemoCrap candidates for POTUS actually debated the other night . Not that it mattered all that much ..

.. the GOP debates have been a big ratings draw . In particular , they have been a ratings bonanza for the cable snooze networks . But what about the broadcast nets ? Not quite ..

.. [h/t — WashingtonExaminer.com]..
.. [link] to the blog news story ..

.. There is an interest new show on C.B.S. , one that is entitled ” Madam Secretary , ” starring Tea Leoni . Amazingly enough , ” Madam Secretary ” outdrew the Dem debate by a very , very big margin …

… You Can Never Tell [#campaign issue][#campaign 2016]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 15th,2016

.. yeah , sure , I want ObamaCrapCare gone . Dead and Buried . But , will it ?? ..

.. campaigns have a habit on their own of determining what issues seem important . Some issues come to the fore that people would never expect to be important .Yet , other issues , like the economy , are ” old reliables , ” and are always a part of the campaign debate …

… Enter Marco Rubio [#GOP nomination][#2016][#POTUS]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,April 17th,2015

.. now Senator Marco Rubio has entered the race for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination .

.. I wish him luck ..

.. Rubio is an experienced businessman , even more of an experienced politician [including 2 terms as Speaker of the Florida House] , as well as completing his current Senate term . he could run for re – election and run for PTOUS , but has chosen not to . That takes guts …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the campaign announcement …

.. I listened to several segments of his speech . He is young , able , and one hell of a polish public speaker . He will have a better – than – expected chance of winning the nomination ….

.. I will endorse someone , eventually for the Presidential race . But not now . I want to see what these folks propose , what they raise in campaign $$ , what their message is , and how they campaign . That will get them to well within range of Thanksgiving and Christmas , and will hopefully winnow out the field in the process …

… O.K. , Mitt is Out [#Romney]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,February 5th,2015

.. that is not all that big a surprise …

.. remember , Ronaldus Magnus ran 3 different times [1968 , 1976 , and 1980] . Magnus helps build his ” buzz ” at the time by his radio commentaries that kept his name , reputation , and ideas fresh in the Forum of Ideas , as well as the media . So , when he ran [and won] in 1980 , he was ready …

.. Mitt Romney in 2016 was not . There was no ” Buzz . ” Many of his key supporters and fundraisers were either non – committal , or they were involved with another presidential campaign . So , they were not there for Mitt . So , no Buzz …

.. Now is the time of the ” Invisible Primary . ” It is a battle for ” Buzz , ” as much as it is for ideas , message , and , of course , $$$ . So , for the next 12 months , a whole lot of folks are going to be working their butts off , especially if they really have ” the fire in the belly . ” Maybe someone else may not have it …

.. besides , at this point in the 2008 Campaign cycle [early 2007] , who in the hell had ever heard of Barack Obama ? … Virtually nobody …

… the MahaRushie may be Right [#about Scott Walker]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 4th,2015

.. Scott Walker has some serious guts , er , balls , that is for sure ..

.. he has presenatted a solid political program for the betterment of Wisconsin . The voters of the state has elected him , time and again , and continue to believe in him . So , maybe his state is changing …

.. Wisconsin is no Blue state . At most , it is a White state , maybe even a ” Pink ” state . So , indeed , it is changing …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the MahaRushie ‘ s commentary …

.. maybe Walker will run for the GOP nomination for President in 2016 . It will be no easy task , that is for sure . But , with a good campaigner , and a good message , and a fair bit of luck , that candidate will have a decent chance of getting the nod . Scott Walker may well be that man ..

.. the DemoCraps have to be sweating bricks over Scott Walker . If Walker does happen to win the nomination , he would have an excellent chance to win the White House in 2016 . He could fairly well pick off a fair number of Blue states that the Dems usually carry , and put others into play . That would force the Dems to psend money where they cannot afford to do so …

… Will Hillary Clinton run [#in 2016]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 23rd,2015

.. I have to wonder ..

.. do she still have the ” fire ” within her that she needs to run …

.. also , does she really want the job ? I am not so sure that she does …

.. if I had to guess now , the odds would be less than 50 / 50 , at about 40% in favour of running ..

.. things can change , but one thing remains clear . She has to make the final call . I am not so sure that she still really wants it ….

… It was Not Even Close [#Cassidy – Landrieu]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 12th,2014

.. well , Campaign 2014 is finally over …

.. they had the runoff in Louisiana on Saturday …

.. and Mary Landrieu got her butt kicked …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the blog news report …

.. Bill Cassidy won going away . He won 56.5% to 43.5% over Senator Landrieu . Yea , it was not even that close . It was only slight closer , though , than the polls were predicting …

.. now the GOP majority in the US Senate is officially up to 54 . It makes the DemoCraps ‘ task in 2016 that much harder of recapturing the majority , espsecially if several important incumbents retire …

… Bruce Rauner is Still the Favourite [#Illinois Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,September 9th,2014

.. even though the race might be tightening …

.. yes , the polls say that Rauner ‘ s lead is down to 8 points . It also now takes into account that there is a libertarian in the race …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the news / poll …

.. it is rare for libertarians to run in Illinois . Yes , they do have an organized Libertarian party there . Given the circumstances , the DemoCraps would attack and demagogue Bruce Rauner on almost anything …

.. it just reminds the GOP to keep its eye on the ball , and its intent on its campaign message . Adjust the message , if needed . Pound on Quinn for the slimebombs , when needed . He deserves it . But remember what is at stake …

.. Illinois ‘ future , and that of our country …
