… 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 …

.. [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 …

… 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 …. “

.. [link to the campaign ad]..

.. it is innovative and self – explanatory . What you really want in a campaign ad …

.. [update] in the original , I got the state wrong , it is Alabama , not Mississippi . Sorry about that ! …

… Can Elan Carr pull off the Impossible ?? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,June 18th,2014

.. not likely , but maybe ..

.. Carr is running in Ca33 , which is Henry Waxman ‘ s old seat . Waxman is retiring after decades [almost 40 years] in the House . This seat is about as liberal as it gets . Apart from Manhattan ‘ s Upper West Side , there are not many places quite like LA ‘ s west side … Brentwood , BelAir , Beverly Hills , and Malibu , up to Santa Monica . The usual job description for a Congressman is GOPers need not apply …

elan carr (gop CA33)(waxman ' s seat)

.. [h/t — HollywoodReporter]..

.. [link] to the piece …

.. However , that did not faze Carr . Carr is now a local small businessman , after a career as a gang – related prosecutor with the Los Angeles County District Attorney ‘ s Office . He also was a military reservist , and saw duty in the Iraq war ….

.. For any Republican to have a real chance , it helps to be Jewish . Carr is , and is Conservative Jewish . That helps , because an Orthodox Jew would be dead meat in this district . Reform Judaism , which is likely strong in this district , may well be willing to support a Conservative jew , especially a businessman and a war veteran ..

.. the odds are not good , but this race bears watching . I do intend to …

.. [update] — Carr is trailing in the polls , but not by much …. by about 6 points . It will be interesting to see how much interest , especially from the media , that this race gets …

.. with early voting , this one could be close . Bob Turner pulled it off in NYC (in Queens) in 2010 against Anthony Weiner , when Weiner quit all of a sudden …

.. this one bears watching …

… 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 …

… It Makes You Wonder [#tone deafness]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,June 7th,2014

.. yes , it appears that it is getting that bad …

.. how can you think of the ObamaCrap Administration ‘ s gross mishandling of the case of Pvt. Bowe Bergdahl . You would expect a White House organization and staff to do their homework fully and completely on the case of the captured soldier before even thinking of making any kind of deal . Considering how many bad actors were involved [5 bad asses] , it really needed to be done . Well , it appears now that it was not , and the reaction shows …

.. [h/t — Mediaite]..
.. [link] to the O ‘ Reilly Factor Talking Points Memo …

.. Bill O ‘ Reilly was merciless in hammering the ObamaCraps over this . The handling of the Bergdahl affair / prisoner swap was waaaay beyong incompetent ….

… 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 ..
