… 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 …

.. 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 ? …

.. [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 …

… if Not Miz Hillary , then [#dem political bench]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,August 12th,2014

.. not a whole lot , folks .

.. the Dems have a problem . Their political bench is not all that deep . Some of their best possible candidates are former politicians [Richard Celeste , Ed Rendell] … so , what else is the problem for them ?? …

.. governors — the Dems only have 20 — they may only add 1 , net [Pa] , but they are likely to lose IL [Bruce Rauner is likely to beat Pat Quinn] . Their governor ‘ s lot , other than Deval Patrick [Ma] , is not all that great . To be honest , Governor Moobeam [Jerry Brown] does not look all that bad for them …

.. senators — Obama ‘ s antics and lack of quals are going to rule out Senators from both parties for a while . Only if a senator has had a private sector or public sector career before the Senate will make them look good . Given her controversies , Liz Warren is no leading light . Dick Durbin is likely to be the new Minority Leader once Dingy Harry loses in 2016 to Brian Sandoval …

.. past figures — Al Gore — been there , done that — are you kidding ?? …

… It Tells You a Lot [John Elway] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 5th,2014

.. John Elway is a NFL Hall – of – Famer , a great quarterback , and for me (as a Cleveland Browns fan) a colossal pain – in – the – rearend . But , he still is one of the great clutch performers in the history of the NFL .

.. It has always been rumored that Big John is a Republican . It is (was) not a state secret . Elway has been evidently recruited by the GOP in Colorado for years . Never say never …

.. Now , he confirms it . Big John is a Republican . Here is why …[link] ..

.. here is a sample of why he is a Republican  …

“Well, those are what my beliefs are. I believe you know as a country that we are given the opportunity to succeed or not succeed. And, I think for us to be able to, I don’t believe in safety nets, obviously we have to have some kind of safety nets, but I think… My philosophy is when you’re given the opportunity you take advantage of that and I think that’s when you get the best out of people.”
