… POTUS cannot Seem to Stay Out of Trouble [#megagaffe]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,March 29th,2016

.. Obama keeps on screwing up …

.. When you are not helpful to your party on the campaign trail , you try to be helpful in other ways . Fundraising is the chief way to help . What you also do is be careful about what you do and what you say …

.. POTUS is especially radioactive this campaign season . He has raised a ton of campaign money for his party . The Dems have had to be sneaky , though , because the money he has raised has been made radioactive , pinning the DemoCrap candidate to their President …. Not helpful at all …

.. Unfortunately , POTUS has not kept his feet out of his mouth . This is an example of this megagaffe …

.. [link] to the megagaffe ….

.. then , he made it worse …

.. he has been making the rounds on Black radio shows and stations . One of them is the so – called ” Reverend ” Al Sharpton ‘ s show . POTUS got caught making another megaboner on this appearance ….

.. the DemoCraps have to be kicking themselves . Giving the GOP this kind of free advertising can be fatal to your own campaign ….

… 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 …

… 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 …

… Now the Expected [#Miz hillary][#Campaign 2016]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,April 17th,2015

.. well , now she ‘ s thrown her hat into the ring . Big whoopee …

.. her campaign is as about as welcome to the political climate as a lead balloon . Hopefully [for her sake] , her campaign message will improve over time …

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

.. right now , her campaign has turned into a three – ring circus . In politics , you want to have organization and dignity to your campaign . Right now , Miz Hillary does not even have a scintilla of that . sooner or later , she is going to need it …

… What a Big Difference [#Florida Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 28th,2014

.. Rick Scott has been doing a bang – up job , and the media has been trying to cover it up …

.. at least his campaign has been carrying forward the message . God Speed , it is working …

.. [h/t — m.Newsbusters.org]..
.. [link] to the blog space …

.. Scott has taken a narrow 4 to 5 point lead over turncoat DemoCrap Charlie Christ . The stats that Newsbusters quotes should help to make all the difference . I think that Scott will win re – election , but it will not be easy …

… Ebola as an ” October Surprise ” [#campaign issue]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,October 25th,2014

.. maybe , just maybe ..

.. the ObamaCrap White House has been acting like a bunch of idiots on this . Their idea of ” crisis management ” has been a disaster , as usual . You have to deal with the issue [the problem] . You cannot deal with it as a political item to be finessed , news cycle by news cycle . Crises do not work that way …

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

.. the timing could not have been worse for the DemoCraps . They need POTUS raising money . They also need him [where possible] campaigning . Right now , he can effectively do neither one . The money would be poison to the candidate , and the appearance for a campaign would be worse …

.. it also suffocates the message put out by the Dems . They are dependent on the ObamaCraps and their idea of ” crisis management . ” They may get it right , someday , but , obviously , not now …. the bad [and worse] publicity makes tyring to run the GOTV (espc w. early voting) far more difficult . The noise scares the hell out of everyone ….

… Big Blunder in Colorado [#Mark udall]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,October 14th,2014

. to date , Udall has been doing a decent job on Cory Gardiner on the pro – life debate . Now , he has really blundered …

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

.. mark udall has now come out solidly in fAVOUR of late – term abotions . What a botch ! …. Opinion has moved to fairly strongly in favour of the pro – life position , it is very solidly in favour of the pro – life position where it comes to late – term abortions … people most strongly do not like them …

.. and now , Udall has come out strongly in favour of them . Big Whoops !! …

… Dandy Political Commercial , But … [#long]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,October 3rd,2014

.. Elbert Guillory is terrific ..

.. the only problem with this commercial is its length …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the political commercial …

.. some interest groups with some $$ should buy into this guy , and his campaign . He is fantastic …

.. this commercial should be re – shot , and slightly re – scored …

.. otherwise , it is great …

.. it will dig into the Democratic vote . One sure way to get the Black vote to begin to ” crack ” is to have an officeholder [one of their own] to convince them to try and have them give the GOP a chance . His own story is the best reason why ….

… Scott Brown is in the Lead [#NH US senate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,September 20th,2014

.. amazing …

.. I am not sure what is more amazing …

.. that Scott Brown is now in the lead , 48% to 46% in the NH US Senate race , or …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the blog article …

.. or that Jeanne Shaheen is in this much deep trouble . The DemoCraps were really counting on keeping this seat . I honestly was figuring that Brown did not have a great shot at this seat . Guess what ??

.. I was wrong . Brown has been working his tail off . He has seized the initiative , having had town hall debates all over the state . Shaheen ? Zero THs . Not one ….

.. it will be interesting to see these two go at it in a debate . She could avoid him , before all of this . Not now . She is going to have to debate him , several time . She has no choice …

.. this seat is in the balance …

… Ouch ! … political ad [#Mary Landrieu]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,September 18th,2014

.. she just got cooked in a dandy , soft – balled campaign ad …

.. and American Crossroads is the responsible party …

.. you would think Bill Cassidy (her November opponent) would have been responsible . Actually , he was not . But , he has to be thankful for it …. boy is it going to get extra mileage …

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the campaign ad …

.. both in D.C. and in Louisiana …. She is trailing in the race , and is in big trouble . She will make a December runoff with Cassidy [presuming he does not get to 50% , first] . He just might …

… Border Crisis ” Nationalizes ” Election campaign [#illegal kids]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 30th,2014

.. when you drop kids in all over the place , so what do you expect ?? ..

.. a bloody mess ..

.. could it get worse ? ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the interview segment …

.. yes , it can . But how ? If those ” illegal kids ” start committing serious crimes , that is how …

.. it is dragging DemoCraps around the country into the fray … and it is giving the GOP a case of ” political jujitsu ” in reverse …

.. usually , immigration reform has been a Democrap issue . Not now , with all of these illegal kids being dropped all over the place . People are rebelling against it , and it is giving almost every Dem grief over the issue . It thus highlights border security , loud and clear , in a way that people can easily understand . It then ” flips ” the issue over to the GOP , and hits the Latino vote in an unexpected way …

.. The GOP has had to work to earn Latino ‘ s votes . Some Republican candidates campaign messages have not helped the effort . However , much of the Latino community is culturally very similar to the Cuban community . If one works at it , hard enough , eventually one can earn someone ‘ s trust . It takes hard work and effort , but it can be done …

.. also , the ” reverse jujitsu . ” Usually , you have to make the move to ” flip ” the issue to your advantage , and turn it against your opponent . In this case , the issue flipped the opponent , and dropped the issue into one ‘ s lap . It thus does it ” in reverse …. “

… She is Going to Regret This [#political megagaffe]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,July 1st,2014

.. in politics , like blogging , you always have to be careful what you say . Once it is on the public record , especially these days , it is there forever . You can remove a post or a tweet , but it is still ” out there …”

.. the same comes to interviews . You have to be very careful with your words , otherwise …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..
.. [link] to the interview …

.. Miz Hillary really committed a colossal boner , a megagaffe . When you screw up like this , people will question your judgement . These goofs are the material award – winning political commercials are made of …

… Thad Cochran is a ” Dead Man Walking ” [#politics]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,June 17th,2014

.. especially after the upset special in VA 7 , where House Majority Leader Eric Cantor made the kind of political history that no one wants to make …

.. Cochran faces businessman and politician Chris McDaniel in a June 24th runoff for the GOP nomination for the US Senate from Mississippi . The eventual nominee will be the very heavy favourite in the general election on November 5th , as Mississippi is as ” Red ” as it gets . Yes , it is that much …

.. McDaniel has a good chunk of momentum already , by finishing first in the primary . He just missed winning the nomination outright by about 1,500 votes or so . So , he is going in the right direction . Cochran is an old hand , having served 6 terms in the US Senate . He is seeking his seventh ….

.. I believe that Cochran will not get it . Since both folks know their relative strengths (and weaknesses) , both can make moves , as well as countermoves , for the runoff . Cochran is the known quantity . McDaniel is the fresh face …

.. McDaniel in the runoff …

… 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 …

… 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 ..
