Newt what a joke. Almost as big a joke as Palin. Except Newt has a few more brain cells. Not much but a few more then Palin. I pity the GOP if eithier were to get nominated.

15 OCTOBER 2011

At  the sole debate of the Mississippi Gubernatorial election, both Taylor and Reeves come out swinging.

Image Link


"I was victorious in the primary and I will win this election because I am the candidate who has been standing up for the conservative values of Mississippi voters. My opponent, on the other hand, has been in Washington for twenty years following the leadership of Nancy Pelosi. Pelosi's policies aren't good for the nation and they're certainly not good for Mississippi. My opponent likes to say he's been an independent voice, but we know that all he's done in Washington is help Pelosi, Obama and the liberal Democrat Party. The Democrats have pushed our national debt off the chart and have put our Treasury in a crisis. If you vote for me, I will not be sympathetic towards them as my opponent has been. Instead, I will continue the work of Governor Barbour and put Mississippi first." 



Image Link

"Well, if you noticed, my opponent spends a lot of time talking about how bad Democrats are, but he doesn't talk a whole lot about his own record. The truth is, while I was in Congress, I voted against legislation that my own party pushed for because I knew it would be bad for Mississippi. I made sure that BP was held accountable for its damage to our Gulf Coast. I brought more funding to veterans programs. I made sure that our soldiers abroad had adequate equipment and funds. I pushed for repeal of NAFTA because its hurting our local industries. I've been an independent leader; for my opponent to claim that I've been a rubber stamp for Pelosi is just misleading and wrong."

Gene Taylor could run in RL next year.. he is the only "democrat" who could win...

talking about reeves, if 53% of mississipi people think he is extreme, he is probably worse than palin and demint. I'm scared.

Taylor would be a great candidate. If he ran, I'd consider him the slight favorite regardless of who the Republican is.

I think he would be a great candidate, too. But I'd consider his republican challenger the favourite.

17-21 OCTOBER 2011

Retirements:

TOM CARPER
Image Link
"Next year, I will not be a candidate for reelection in the state of Delaware. Instead, I will retire to focus on my family and I will serve the people of my state in other capacities. I feel that after serving 2 terms as its Governor and 2 terms as its Senator, my time as an elected official is nearly complete."

KAY BAILEY HUTCHISON
Image Link
"At this point in my Senate career, I feel that it is time that I step aside. As the most senior Republican woman in the Senate, I have been able to legislatively achieve for the state of Texas during my 18 years here. Simply put, I'd like to spend more time with my family and I feel that I have served my fair share of time in the Senate on behalf of the people of Texas."




Candidate Announcements

CLINT DIDIER
Image Link
"In 2010, Washington state elected liberal Democrat Patty Murray. In 2012 Maria Cantwell, an even more liberal Senator will be up for election. On behalf of the people of Washington, I will be standing up to Senator Cantwell. In2012, she will be punished for her record of choosing choice over life and putting Washington DC above Washington state."

DAVE HEINEMAN
Image Link
"I will be challenging Senator Ben Nelson in 2012. As a Senator, Nelson's policies have embarrassed and hurt Nebraska. In 2012, I was reelected with nearly 75% of the vote; I take this as a sign that the people of Nebraska overwhelmingly approve of my policies and my approach to leading. Knowing that, I decided to run for Senate"Nebraska needs another Senator that puts its people above his shady backroom Beltway friends. In 2013, I look forward to joining our Republican Senator, Mike Johanns, in Washington.

JEAN SCHMIDT
Image Link
"Ohio, despite its center-right leanings, elected one of the most liberal legislators in Congress in 2006, Sherrod Brown. In 2010, Ohioans chose Republicans. Governor Strickland lost and Democrats lost 5 Ohio House seats.  In 2012, Ohio will reject Brown's liberalism as well! In Congress, I have worked to promote economic success, fiscal responsibility and life. These are principles that liberal  Sherrod Brown opposes. Brown is bad for Ohio and he must be replaced."


AND FINALLY...


Image Link

"My friends, 2010 was a rough year for Democrats. No one knows that better than me! From north to south, Democrats struggled. Not this year. My friends, the lessons of my 2010 campaign will only boost the effort of my 2012 campaign.
I'd like to thank Senator Herb Kohl. I worked with Herb for 18 years and I know that he went to work every day with the state of Wisconsin in mind. In 2012, I'd like to continue Herb's wonderful job and build on projects that I started during my time in the Senate.
After my previous campaigns, I can truly say that I am prepared for anything the right has to throw at me!
As your Senator, I held meetings in every county, regardless of how right or left they leaned. Oddly, my preprocessor, Ron Johnson, has not done this. In the Seante, Ron has not stood up Wall Street and the big banks as I did. This is why we cannot left Herb's seat fall into the hands of another Republican!
On to 2012!!!"

Sherrod Brown is too liberal for Ohio but I doubt Jean Schmidt is electable outside her district. She has been quoted with some controversial statements and comes off on the cold hearted side. Her demeanor is not warm and personable. In such a scenario Brown would be lucky for an opponent like her and would hold on...imo.

28 OCTOBER 2011


As the 2012 campaign season approaches, the lives of most Americans have not improved. Most families are in the same shape that they were in before the 2008 election; many are also worse off. This economic stagnation and lack to direction has given me reason to run for President in 2012. Therefore, I will be seeking the Republican nomination to replace Barack Obama as President in 2012.

Because I served as Governor of a blue state, I feel that I have developed the bispartisan and open problem solving skills that are needed to move America forward in these rough years. As Governor, I worked with people of both parties, as well as independents, to get results for the people of my state. At the same time, I remained to my conservative values of fiscal restriction, efficient government and social moderation.

I have no doubt that as Governor, I annoyed many on the far-right. This wing of the Republican party will probably be working against me in the primary as well. However, I am confident  that I will prevail because I believe that their is still room for those who truly want to solve America's problems and get our nation back on track. However, I share their believe that the extreme left is ruining our country; because of liberal extremism, our nation will be worse off for our future generations than it was for us. In 2012, I have no doubt that these liberals will be put out of power.

As of now, I know that I will be facing Speaker Newt Gingrich in the Republican primary. I look forward to an substantive debate with Newt and any other Republicans enter this race.Finally,  to win, I will need to build a coalition of moderate and conservative voters. Thus, I am calling on moderates, independents and conservatives to examine my record and to vote Mitt Romney in 2012.

I love excel Wink

No, I'm still thinking about it. I was thinking about maybe Terrance Wall or maybe Tim Michels (his 2004 opponent). I'm going to keep Paul Ryan in the House. I might give him a higher leadership post just to make sure he stays in the House and doesn't challenge Feingold.

I'll post more Wisconsin polls soon.
