The comment section was (and still is) burning up over the weekend with the folks arguing back and forth on LB599, a/k/a the Illegal Immigrant Pre-Natal Care bill. The arguments for each side are still pretty much the same: Illegal-immigration vs Pro-Life.
Feel free to tear into it some more, if you please.
If we see a single story from some dumb-sh*t “voter” who can’t make up their mind because they just haven’t heard enough about the issues from the candidates, we will go all Elvis on the computer screens. The Senate candidates debated for the 3rd/4th time on Sunday, and it received glowing coverage on page five of the Midlands section of the OWH. And apparently what all the voters are clamoring about is “earmarks”.
Oh my, we can’t make our way across the coffee-shop to grab the latest Penny Saver without overhearing a conversation about earmarks. It’s all anyone was talking about in the bowels of Memorial Stadium during the lightning storm. It’s a good think Rex Burkhead addressed it while he was signing autographs, otherwise we wouldn’t have known what was going on.
And please MSM, please find some “undecided” voters — you know, the ones who will decide the election — and get them to tell us that they need to hear more about “the economy” before they can make up their minds. We can’t get enough of that.
For those of you watching the Democrat Primary in NE02, here are the numbers between the two candidates, through March 2012 (according to their FEC filing):
And by the way, neither candidate is going after the other. So unless a Super PAC soars in to save her, we have no idea how Gwen Howard beats Ewing.
As we were watching the Democrat operatives lay into Mitt Romney’s wife last week, we got to wondering when it was cool to bring in the candidate’s wife into the game.
But then, as we were perusing the internets over the weekend, we saw a couple of these ads:
And we see that for the Dems, this is the name of the game. See, this is not about Barack Obama’s policies for the economy or foreign policy or spending. It is about joining Michelle! Oh, well then, sign us up! (Have you seen how beautiful her arms are??)
And then the President’s top political chief, his communications expert David Axelrod goes before the media and says,
“The choice in this election is between an economy that produces a growing middle class and that gives people a chance to get ahead, and their kids a chance to get ahead, and an economy that continues down the road we’re on.”
(Hang on, let’s read that again…)
Uh, OK. We agree.
Don’t beleive us? Here you go.
Looks like Bob Kerrey was correct. Sometimes the Republicans AND the Democrats are right!
Nonethless, the Dems are still talking about “Obamaha”. Here is the story told, once again, from ABC’s Jake Tapper:
Yeah, we get it. There could be a tie, and Obama won the 2nd in 2008. But this ain’t 2008. The excitement, the turnout and the hopey changey ain’t there. Just because you put up a storefront does not mean they will turn out.
But nice shot of Toad’s and the Old Market.
