"For the first time last night, Polish military invaded our territory and attacked from our soil. We have now been returning fire since 5:45 AM ! And from now on, we shall repay bomb for bomb!"

Adolf Hitler's speech to the German Reichstag, Berlin - September 1, 1939

On September 1, 1939, the pre-dawn skies lit up over the Baltic Sea as the German battleship Schleswig-Holstein opened fire on a Polish fortress on the Westerplatte Peninsula as assault troops hidden aboard the vessel stormed the shoreline. The venerable ship that had seen action in World War I fired the first salvos of what would be a second global conflagration. Without a declaration of war, 1.5 million troops stormed Nazi Germany’s 1,750-mile border with Poland. They came from the north, south and west. They came by land, by air and by sea in a quest to regain territory lost by Germany in the Treaty of Versailles and colonize its neighbor.

-10:00am - Speaking at Ann Richards breakfast sponsored by Planned Parenthood in Austin

"Friends. It is with great honor that I join you today to mark the 74th birthday of the great Ann Richards. Ann's daughter Cecile is here. Cecile, I met your mother many times over the years. You know more well than I what a great and powerful woman she was.

Thank you as well to Planned Parenthood, who made the wise decision to hire Cecile as your president las year, thank you for the invitation to speak to you at this morning's breakfast.

You know, on the way here, Karin Johanson and I were throwing around the brilliant quips and quotes Ann made over the years. And the one that stuck with me during the opening prayer, was this: "I've been tested by fire, and the fire lost." Boy did it ever lose when the fire tried to take on Ann Richards.

I want to thank many of you, who reached out to me in the last year encouraging me to run for President. I'll be honest, it was never an ambition of mine. When Joe Biden asked me to be on the ticket four years ago, I kept pushing back the decision. We had to announce late because I knew if I did it it would be on my terms, in service and in duty. And so when many of you encouraged me to run, I turned to God. I've prayed on this choice, and you and the Lord have called on me to serve the country in this way. I accept that duty with faith and courage we will find our way.

Make no mistake: the road ahead will be hard. It will be rocky and rough and we will face obstacles that men, even Joe Biden, never faced in a campaign for President. But I was there four years ago. I've fought fire too. And I came out alive.

I'm happy to see this because I know I can disregard WAA from now on. (Weren't they showing massive Rauener leads?)

Yeah. Any WAA Illinois poll is crap.

Mass is one state that votes very indy in gubernatorial elections. I see this as Coakley loss. Not an effect on the Dem party in these midterms. We can still win in WI and FL while losing this seat.

True, they have more of a history of having Democrats lose in governor races  than Senate races, where only one *ahem* Democrat lost since 1972.

Well, I will defend Phil (although Badger's posts are really great).

Phil said that exactly:
Al, the only PA Dem that could beat Santorum is Casey. That's it. Maybe Holden but other than that, Santorum will keep the seat. Casey has dismissed the idea of a run several times now. The Dems won't win here. However, if you'd like to take money out of VA and MO races to focus on PA, that's fine with me. All you'll be doing is wasting your money.
He clearly said that Casey could beat him, but Phil didn't believe Casey was going to run.

Phil wasn't really wrong on santorum's chances, he was wrong on the fact that Casey wasn't going to run. That's not a critical mistake. He doesn't deserve to be mocked by that 10 years after this event.

So seriously, dismissing Phil's opinion because of "Santorum will win" is really weird.


Then, Phil has indeed a rep bia, because he's a republican. That's totally normal. I have a dem bia, most of the democrats have a bia,...
But his opinion is articulate. So please, respect at least what he says, and if you disagree with him, take time to answer to him respectfully and not saying "Santorum will win", Badger did that well flr instance, his answer was articulate.

This situation just shows how dem biased is this forum.

Now I will give my opinion of that.

I wouldn't be so confident than Phil, but he's indeed right. The republicans are going to win here, Davis' lead has been reduced extremely quickly, and Kansas is one of the reddest state in the country historically speaking.

The KS swing voter is probably tmthforu, and he will probably vote for the reps, like Bacon King's family is a good indication for Georgia, tmthforu represents well the swing voters of his state Tongue.


And tmth just moved to KS.
Born and raised here, been here for two years, and Kansas has similar values to Indiana.

That being said, while politically I'm probably the targeted swing voter, I also think about political implications more than the average Kansan, hence why I am leaning towards Brownback.

You're not a swing voter. You're a very solid republican hack. Not saying that in a demeaning way or anything, but let's be honest here. No swing voter votes Mourdock over Donnely or Brownback over Davis.

Eh, like Mead, I've never had the impression Shumlin was *super* popular. He barely won in 2010 and underperformed Obama a lot in 2012.
