It will be interesting to see what happens with the Santorum campaign if he picks up a couple wins on Feb. 7.

This is just a fun poll to see if Harris, Gallup, Rasmussen or another big firm will pick up on the three-way polling to include Paul as a Libertarian Candidate. Vote and spread the word!

Time to start a recall campaign against Lieberman, perhaps? Or is that allowed?

Nothing like a column using sports cliches to give the President of the United States advice. Pretty funny, yet sadly on target.

No...Gregg went to Las Vegas with self-proclaimed morals czar Bill Bennett and gambled away his Bush-era stimulus checks! But he apologized and everything is OK.

Ronald Reagan Day. Sounds like a bad horror movie.

Punditty thought he was doing a pretty good job of self-promotion, but he sees now that your approach is even better.

If The Punditty Project ever finds itself in need of a Punditty Pusher Down Under, it will be in touch.

Seriously, though, this whole "social media" thing, like it or not, revolves around self-promotion and network building. Punditty lacks the advertising budget of a CNN or a MSNBC, so he tries to stop by this forum, contribute to a few other threads that interest him, and then drop in some original material that he thinks will be of interest to many of the members on this forum. That's all.

Thanks for reading. Any thoughts on Obama's verbage?

10  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Your assessment of the first two weeks of the Obama administration? on: February 04, 2009, 03:30:21 am
I voted "fair," but if it were a letter-grade awarding poll, I would have given him a C+.

If he gets a stimulus passed by Feb. 16 as he says he will, then he will have done something huge within a month of taking office, whether you agree with the stimulus or not.

Meanwhile, I will give him a C- on his Cabinet appointments, but if he picks Howard Dean to head HHS, that grade goes up to a solid B in a hurry.

I think this will help, if it ever makes it into law:

(from the Seattle Times)

The vote was 71-26 to allow many car buyers to claim an income tax deduction for the cost of automobile sales taxes and interest payments on car loans.

Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., said the plan would aid the beleaguered automobile industry as well as create jobs at a time the economy is losing them at a rapid rate. "I believe we can help by getting the consumer into the showroom," she said.
12  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Obama makes a verbal slip in admitting mistake on Daschle on: February 04, 2009, 03:19:21 am
I think it's fair to say that President Obama is a more gifted public speaker than President Bush was, but it's also fair to say that if Bush would have made this verbal gaffe, the late-night joke-writers would have been all over it.

13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Palin has her "open door" right now - taking a stand for fair elections on: November 11, 2008, 09:45:19 pm
The controversy over Alaska's strange voting results is sure to intensify in coming days, giving Gov. Sarah Palin the "open door" she needs in order to command more respect on the national stage. She now has a golden opportunity to become America's foremost voice for free, fair and open elections.

17  Election Archive / 2008 U.S. Presidential Election Campaign / Applying "The Spirit of '76" during Obama's 76-day transition period on: November 06, 2008, 05:36:17 am
So, yes, I was in a reflective mood today. When I noticed that the transition period would be 76-days, I immediately thought of "The Spirit of '76." The thoughts led to a column.

For those of you interested on the dynamics of change at all levels, see:


I also want to thank DL and the moderators and everyone else in this forum for their passion and interest during the 2008 campaign. It was certainly a campaign for the ages.

18  Election Archive / 2008 U.S. Presidential Election Campaign / Media Readiness can help prevent another Florida-like fiasco - here's how on: October 23, 2008, 03:07:16 am

What if the national media - or the Gore Campaign - had made the general public aware of the Florida law mandating a machine recount in races closer than one half of one percent before FOX News called the election for Bush in the wee hours of Nov. 8, 2000?

That was then, but this is now. There's still time to research the battleground states and determine what the laws say about close races and possible recounts. That way, neither candidate will be in a position to declare victory and gain the upper hand in the P.R. battle the way Bush did in 2000 after his cousin at FOX called Florida for him.

Granted, the election may not be that close this time, but an ounce of prevention, as they say, is worth a pound of cure. See:

Please feel free to reply here or e-mail me at punditty@hotmail.com if you see any other fixes that need to be made or problems with the links.

Feel free to forward the allvoices link to Dems, GOPpers and Indies alike; as some of you may remember when I started posting in August, I am participating in the allvoices.com Excellence in Citizen Media Incentive. I know that I've been pro-Ron Paul and pro-Barack Obama after that, so I was thinking to myself, "What could I do that transcends partisanship that would be of use to everyone and be something people wanted to forward to their friends?"

This is what I came up with - let's just hope there aren't any repeats of FL2000 to keep us too busy on these sites Nov. 4-5th!

Thanks for reading...

After I post this message, I am going to go back and post all the links in a reply (yes, it will be long, but with 50 states & D.C., hey, that's life).  Some may like the display here better, and some may like the display in the allvoices report better. Ain't freedom of choice great?

Most of the states don't have active election night pages yet, but check out PA - it is already running tests and has the template in place.

May all the votes be counted accurately!

Colorado. If the voting rolls haven't been purged by 25 percent as RFK Jr. asserts, then Obama will win there along the lines of 51-46 with 3 percent for other.
25  Election Archive / 2008 U.S. Presidential Election Campaign / Re: What will be the closest state this year, Part III on: October 11, 2008, 09:07:35 pm
Last time, I thought Florida. Now I think Obama has Florida barring something major.

This time, I'm going with Indiana although North Carolina could be right there, with Georgia as a "surprise" battleground state. Missouri will break one way or the other near the end (as Missouri often does) and won't be as nail-bitingly close as people think. Expect mischief and accusations around the St. Louis vote, as always, which is usually reported late and has erased many GOP slim statewide margins over the years.

But I don't think MO will be close enough for that to matter.  If I had to guess now, I'd say it will end up about 50-47.5 Obama with Barr/Nader/other getting 2.5 percent.

Very interesting thread.
