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 [#trustworthiness][#honesty]…

.. and it is going to dog her all the way along the campaign trail ..

.. now we get to find out about Nevaama] does , at least , have some of it . Not a lot , but some . She has nonoe . She is also not likeda [the Silver State] and South Carolina [the Palmetto State] . I expect that the trend will continue …

.. simple . Miz Hillary does not have the ” warm fuzzies ” factor that her husband has always had [as a politician] . His Lordship [Obama] at least has some of it . Not a lot , but some . She has none . She is not liked , nor is not trusted . For any politician , no matter who you are , the above is virtually fatal ..

.. so what is Miz Hillary going to do about it ?? ..

… 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 ..

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 .

… First Perry , now Walker [#thinning the Field]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,September 23rd,2015

.. to be honest , it was about time ..

.. the ” money ” primary was going to winnow the GOP field before the full political season starts . The only question is when and how …

.. it was sad , however , that it was these two guys . Rick Perry has worked his butt off to improve his image and his presentation . He has really worked hard to do so . It is just this field and its size , along with you – know – who , that helped to sink him . Walker ‘ s reason ‘ s are different ..

.. Walker ‘ s campaign was high maintenance . He was spending too much $$ . You combine that with the collapse in his poll #s , and …

… 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 …

.. 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 …

… What is Mary Landrieu Thinking ?? [#campaign tactic]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,October 29th,2014

.. Mary Landrieu is in enough trouble . She does not need to buy more .

.. She decided to tee off on State Sen. Elbert Guillory [R-La] , a black Republican , for being an opportunist . Bad move …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post // campaign ad ..

.. Guillory is one of the most respected political folks in Louisiana . He easily could have , if he had wanted to , have been the GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate against Landrieu . He declined , and Bill Cassidy stepped up …

.. she is scared to death of losing any part of the black vote . With Guillory ‘ s opposition , it could very well happen …

.. this one will get nasty . It will get nastier as Election Day nears . it will be red – hot molten if , as espected , this one goes to a runoff , and control of the US Senate may well be at stake …

… Joni surges Ahead [#IA US Senate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,October 4th,2014

.. Go , Joni , Go !! …

.. you bet I want Joni Ernst to win . She has run a fabulous campaign campaign . She has received some fairly lucky breaks , which always helps . Also , Terry Branstad running [likely a success] for re-election is a very huge help for her campaign …

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

.. having a royal screw – up for an opponent is even better . He opponent , Iowa congresscritter Bruce Braley has run a disaster for a campaign . Even worse , he has made several ill – timed mega – gaffes at several critical points in the campaign …

.. now , Joni leads bruce 44% to 38% , with an independent [left – leaning] with 6% , and 12% undecided . That is good . Braley is an incumbent , so the pressure is on him , not her . Also , with the left – leaner in the race , it hurts Braley …

.. so , Joni only needs to get to 48% (or better) to get clear of Braley for good . There is still work to do , though , and the debate season is now upon us …

.. [link] to the campaign poll result …

.. Scott now leads republican traitor – turned – DemoCrap Charlie Crist , 45% to 39% , with two other candidates with 5% , and 11% undecided …

.. yes , Rick Scott has work to do . But with the two extra candidates in the race , the usual 50% ceiling is more like a 48% to 47% ceiling . Breaking through that level , especially after all of the hard work that he has done on the airwaves and the campaign trail , seems now to be eminently doable …

.. still remember , run an error – free campaign . Which , so far , Scott has done . The debates are still to come , but Scott has the initiative …. and the record …. he can go after Crist hard ….

… It Figures [#Democracy Alliance]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,July 20th,2014

.. these people are a pile of scum .

.. how dare they try to suppress our civil rights …

.. [h/t — WashingtonFreeBeacon]..
.. [link] to the article ..

.. you really should read this article . It is a real dandy . It describes the antics of the so – called ” Democracy Alliance ” in simple , yet harrowing detail …

The campaign finance reform efforts of a massive network of liberal and Democratic groups are explicitly designed to limit conservatives’ ability to oppose key parts of the left’s agenda, according to the head of the group coordinating those efforts.

The admission comes as parts of that network attempt to present the case for campaign finance reform as politically and ideologically neutral, and to recruit and reach out to conservatives and Republicans who might support it under those pretenses.

Democracy Alliance president Gara LaMarche presented the organization’s push for such reform, which involves a litany of major left-wing political and policy groups, not simply as a foil against corruption or corporate capture but as a prerequisite for the group’s other policy goals, all of which are left of center.

In a presentation at the Democracy Alliance’s April donor conference in Chicago, LaMarche lamented recent Supreme Court decisions such as Citizens United vs. FEC and McCutcheon vs. FEC—that loosened restrictions, respectively, on political speech by corporations and unions and individual campaign contributions.

“If we can’t succeed in turning this around, and it will take some years to do it, we will never make the progress we need to make on critical issues facing the country and the world like climate change and gun violence,” he said, according to prepared remarks obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Altering the nation’s campaign finance laws, he said, would allow the Democracy Alliance and its network of affiliated groups to more easily advance liberal policies that have nothing to do with campaign finance.

“In that crucial sense, dealing with the distorting effect of money on our politics is a prerequisite to every other advance we seek,” LaMarche said.

The Democracy Alliance and groups to which it steers tens of millions of dollars every year frequently denounce Republican political donors, chiefly libertarian philanthropists Charles and David Koch.

“Increasingly, elections in the U.S. are in the grip of a handful of our version of the Russian oligarchs,” LaMarche told DA conference attendees. “The money in this room does its best to compete in our current broken system, but unlike our conservative counterparts, we want a new system in which all voices and votes are equal.”

Democracy Alliance critics say that concern for a supposedly level political playing field actually masks the group’s true intent: to restrict its political opponents’ ability to oppose the larger left-wing policy agenda.

Hans Von Spakovsky, a former Federal Election Commissioner and the head of the Heritage Foundation’s Election Law Reform Initiative, said LaMarche’s comments betray the partisan motives behind the group’s campaign finance reform push.

“This is really a stunning admission by the misnamed Democracy Alliance that the real purpose of so called campaign finance reform is to silence those who don’t agree with the progressive, liberal agenda of Gara LaMarche and all of his political allies, who consist of the most liberal donors in the country,” he wrote in an email.

Von Spakovsky said LaMarche and his organization want to “throw out the First Amendment—the Bill of Rights is obviously an inconvenient, archaic anomaly to him.”

The DA’s push for campaign finance reform has involved a number of groups that its donors fund that push for additional restrictions on social welfare nonprofits and corporate political spending (though labor unions are rarely targeted).

One of those groups, the Fund for the Republic, has worked to present the case for such reforms as bipartisan and politically neutral.

The group recently hired a number of Republicans in an effort to reach out to potential conservative supporters, though one of those Republicans was formerly a senior staffer for the Democratic governor of Massachusetts.

Despite denunciations from LaMarche and others associated with the group of the country’s post-Citizens United campaign finance landscape, Democracy Alliance conference attendees have encouraged its network of high-dollar donors to support political groups empowered by the Citizens Untied decision.

The Alliance’s perceived closeness with the Democratic Party and the Obama White House led to a schism among its supported groups in 2012. A number of them, seen as more movement than party-oriented, parted ways with the Alliance as a result.

LaMarche acknowledged those misgivings in a June letter to former Democracy Alliance donors urging them to take another look at the group and its work.

“Some former partners had the perception we were not sufficiently independent of the Democratic Party or the White House, or failed to take a long enough view of infrastructure and power-building beyond the next election cycle,” he wrote.

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 …

.. This part of California is normally a moderate Democrat area . A significant part of the district , however , emcompasses , San Diego County and the City of San Diego . That makes it precarious for any DemoCrap , anytime …

.. San Diego was and still is the US home to the US Navy ‘ s Pacific Fleet . Not only that , Camp Pendleton Marine Base is not that far away . Ditto TwentyNinePalms Marine Base .. Which makes for lots and lots of active military and military retirees , many of whom do not like the Dems , especially His Lordship [Obama] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,May 14th,2014

.. if you have not heard of him , you will .

.. Carl De Maio is / was a City Councilman in San Diego . He is a fervent and strong , fairly conservative guy . He is also gay . So what ? ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax]..
.. [link] to the candidate ‘ s comments ..

.. De Maio ran for Mayor of San Diego in 2012 . Unfortunately , he lost (narrowly) to Bob (Filthy) Filner , who is now gone . He is now running for the 52nd Congressional district seat , one that is currently held by a DemoCrap (I am not sure which one) ..

.. given the circumstances , de Maio would not have an easy time . This year and this time around , he has a real chance of knocking off an incumbent DemoCrap . Good . Whether he is gay or not should not matter . Whether he is electable and can serve well in office is important ..

.. good luck to you , Carl . I for one will be following your race to see what happens …

… Alex Sink must Have a Death Wish …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,March 7th,2014

.. boy , what a stupid comment to make .

.. Alexandra Sink is a congressional candidate . You might guess that she is a DemoCrap . She is running in a special election [March 11th , 2014] for the seat of the late congresscritter C.W. ” Bill ” Young . Young was a moderate Republican (in other words , a R.I.N.O.) who made this district his home for all of his life .

.. Bill Young died late last year . Governor Rick Scott called a special election for March 11th , and Sink and GOPer David Roby ended up being the candidates in the race for this district [Florida 13] . Florida 13 is no easy task . It is suburban turf in and around Tampa Bay and Saint Petersburg .

.. Normally , it is a moderately Democrat – leaning district . Young , being the long – time chairman of the Appropriations Committee , would normally be the only GOPer who could hold this district for the Republicans . But this year is no normal political year …. the question is , can Sink hold the district for the Dems , or will Roby flip it back to the GOP ??

.. ObamaCrapCare is weighing things down for the DemoCraps . They are getting nailed by an unprecedented TV ad barrage all around the country . Now , they are getting it here . Plus , AFP and other groups are also getting the free media from the news coverage of the ad war . This time , for the Dems , the shoe is on the other foot .

.. You would think that Sink would learn to discipline her mouth and her campaign message . She has been around the block before , and she should gosh darned know better . She was the State of Florida ‘ s Chief Financial Officer , and was the 2010 nominee for Governor against Rick Scott . Guess what ?? …

.. she stuck her foot in her mouth , big time …. she got a little flip with her mouth , and made a potentially huge gaffe … see here …

.. [h/t — theGatewayPundit]..

.. [link] to the campaign blooper …

.. you can bet that Roby and his campaign will have this blunder up on the airwaves all over the place . This kind of gaffe is a gift to Roby , and hopefully he will take maximum advantage of it …
