… Big Shock [#Miz Hillary][#Keystone XL pipeline]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 21st,2016

.. you had to figure that this was coming . Especially considering how piss poorly her campaign has been going ..

.. Sanders is still on the rise . ” Uncle Joe ” Biden may enter the race . Her own poll rating have been steadily sinking , and she has nobody to blame but herself ..

.. so , she has had to move far , far to the left . But how far to the left ?? ..

.. given her move , this one was a no – brainer ..

… the DummyCraps are Baiting the Donald [#political tactic]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,August 6th,2016

.. Dick Morris spotted this stunt immediately . He knows the Clintonoids well . He used to work for Mr. Bill and Miz Hillary for a generation . So he knows their strategies and tactics well ..

.. if the Donald gets focused and maintains that focus , then Miz Hillary is dead meat . The Donald will plow thru her like shit thru a goose . So the task at hand is simple . Maintain that focus and stay on message ..

… Miz Hillary has a serious problem [#campaign target][#campaign audience]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,February 4th,2016

.. oh , boy , does she ever ..

.. who with ?? …

.. the young ..

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

.. and that means real trouble for her . She needs the young in large numbers to turn out . So far , they are not turning out for her . Either they are turning out for Vt. Senator Bernie Sanders , they are becoming independents , or , horror of horror , they are becoming Republicans . That last element would be the biggest shock of all for the DemoCraps …

… Oh , Boy [#er , Girl][#Miz Hillary][#Iowa Caucuses]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 3rd,2016

.. well , she won ..

.. barely ! ..

.. the Dems did not have a big turnout at their caucuses . The GOP has a somewhat larger party registration than the Dems in iowa , but , due to the unions , the Dem caucuses have a fair bit larger turnout . It was especially true in 2008 , when nearly 510 , 000 folkls turned out for the battle which producedour current losed of a POTUS …

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

.. .. the GOP can be proud . My party had a record [for them] of 188,000 eople turn out for their caucus . That kind of party participation makes for a great deal of anticipation and interest going forward toward November ‘ s general election ..

.. Ted Cruz is Running for President ?? [#now ?]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,March 24th,2015

.. am I surprised ? to be honest , no .

.. Cruz has an outsized ego . He also possesses an enormous amount of ability . But running for POTUS now ? …

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

.. I think that [eventually] he can make a very good President . He obviously wants the job . He knows why he wants the job . But , is it his time ? …

.. to be honest , no . The GOP field is shaping up to be a cast of thousands . It will be very , very difficult for anyone but the top candidates to raise money , much less to get noticed …

.. Unlike most folks , Cruz does not have those kind of problems . He can gain free publicity like crazy . He is already very well – known . He is an excellent fundraiser , which will give him an above – average shot at the nomination . Some good luck would also be helpful …

.. we will see what happens …

… 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 …

… Decent Commercial , But … [Iowa Senate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,June 11th,2014

.. horrendous symbolism…

.. Earth to Bruce Braley …

.. [h/t — DesMoinesRegister]..
.. [link] to the article and the commercial footage ..

.. Connect Mouth to Brain before Putting Mouth into Gear , or pressing Finger to Send Button , also ..

.. think things over , twice . Three times or more would be better ..

.. Why ? Dummy . Using a ” chick ” these days with a female candidate is going to be a non – starter . It will blow up in your face , and make you look like a colossal idiot . Something with which you are acutely familiar with …

… Not a Good Way to Start [Georgia US Senate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,May 25th,2014

.. well , now she is the DemoCrap nominee .

.. and for her , her Republican opponent has yet to be determined . Congresscritter Jack Kingston and businessman David Perdue are in a July 22nd runoff to determine the GOP nominee … So , what gives ??…

.. Michelle Nunn makes a major league gaffe . Whoops ! ..

.. [h/t — RealClearPolitics]…
.. [link] to the video footage ..

.. she was asked a question , plain and simple . Would she have voted for ObamaCrapCare , as originally put together ? It is not a hard question to answer . But she fumbled it , big time …

.. not a good way to start a general election campaign …. especially for a first – time candidate . Perdue is also a first – timer , but is getting tested by the campaign trail , debates , and the 24 – hour media cycle . Nunn is not . Kingston is an 8 – term veteran of the House of Representatives , and is a strong member of the House GOP ‘ s theme team in debates on the floor . He sure as hell knows what he is doing …

… Great Campaign Ad (Oregon US Senate) …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,April 29th,2014

.. amazing woman , and , so far , an amazing campaign ..

.. Dr. Monica Wehby [Web – by] is a pediatric surgeon . She made a tough call , and stood foursquare by her patient when she needed her most , when she was pregnant , and her child ‘ s life was in danger . The results stand for themselves …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the campaign ad ..

.. normally , Monica Wehby would face long odds in a light – blue state such as Oregon . This is no ordinary year , and Oregon ‘ s state government is in a disastrous mess . It will turn the politics and the campaign trail upside down . Dr. Wehby now will have a very real chance to unseat the incumbent , Jeff Merkely …

.. I would definitely vote for her , and I think that she just might do it ..

… C.P.A.C. — Governor Rick Perry [R-Tx] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,March 12th,2014

.. here is the C.P.A.C. speech by Texas Governor and possible future Republican Presidential candidate Rick Perry [R-Tx] …

.. [h/t — theDaleyGator]..
.. [link] to the speech video …

.. unlike most candidates , Perry is going to have one hell of a record to run on , plus he will likely have turned over Texas to another Republican (Greg Abbott) . He will have left Texas in great financial shape , and have done so as well in great philosophical shape , as well .

.. Perry will have a great deal of work to do . Unlike the other possibles , he would need to show that he has lived down his bombing in debates reputation . He never did it back home in Texas , but he did on the big stage . If he wants to be considered for the big job , he will have to work his buns off for it . But , if he wants it , he just may well have another credible shot at it …

… Foreign Policy will be a Surprise Issue …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,March 11th,2014

.. both in 2014 , and in 2016 .

.. It is one that the Republican Party will have to deal with . We as Republicans and as Conservatives cannot avoid it . There are messes all over the place from His Lordship ‘ s administration , and it will take some serious leadership to clean up after them .

.. the DemoCraps are going to be scared shitless over this . Trying to deal with the poor economy is hard enough . The  lack of investment is a critical feature that is harming it very badly .  Then you also have to deal with ObamaCrapCare . All of the monkeying around with it is endangering people ‘  s faith in government . It also endangers their rights ,  as well …

.. now , this . The Dems do not want to have to deal with defense policy and foreign affairs . They are weak enough elsewhere , as it is . Now this stuff pops up . It does not matter whether Miz Hillary or someone else is the DemoCrap nominee in 2016 . They will have Obama and his legacy wrapped around his (or her) neck …
