Jindal and Thompson wish for failure.

Bobby Jindal and Fred Thompson both have come out today saying that they wish Obama would fail.

This country has lost sight of the idea that you are only as strong as your weakest citizen.  People are losing their jobs, their homes, and their retirement funds.  Yet, the other side continues to play partisan, turning a blind eye to what really matters.  These games look petty to the American people that are being affected by this.  The top five percent have had a good ride these past few years and with money and power comes the greed for more money and power.  We have let the poorest fall down while we have been the ones carrying the carrot stick.  The difference in ideology is that democrats want to help them up, just get them back on their feet again and let them follow whatever carrot stick they would like.  Republicans think that they are doing just fine lying on the ground, if they fell it was their fault and we have no business helping them up.

Have a little fun with this candidate quiz

I know it isn't too serious, but I thought some of you might be amused by this quiz to find out which candidate you line up with most closely. It is a bit simplistic, but still fun and amusing...
For my part, I am sad to report that I apparently line up most closely with Mike Gravel. shudders

JRE Stomps The Repugs

Yes, I am going to harp on the electability of JRE.  I know I am biased for him.  I cannot be objective and I apologize for it.

Here is the new head to head polls that just came out today:

Survey of 800 Likely Voters
September 26-27, 2007

Rudy Giuliani (R) vs.
John Edwards (D)

Rudy Giuliani (R)
 41%

John Edwards (D)
 50%

Fred Thompson (R) vs.
John Edwards (D)

Fred Thompson (R)
 39%

John Edwards (D)
 49%

"Former Senator John Edwards now attracts 50% support in the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey matching him with former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani. He leads Giuliani 50% to 41%. The poll also shows Edwards with a ten-point advantage over former Senator Fred Thompson, 49% to "

"One interesting twist to this year's early Presidential polling is that Edwards typically outperforms other leading Democratic hopefuls in general election match-ups but remains a distant third in the competition for the Democratic Presidential Nomination. This seems to have impaired his fundraising and Edwards recently decided to accept public funding. The move subjects his campaign to strict spending limits that many political observers believe will handicap his efforts. "

"Still, Edwards currently leads the top four Republican candidates by an average of nearly nine points. Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton leads the top GOP hopefuls by an average of six points while Barack Obama holds an average lead of five points (see a summary of general election match-ups and other key stats for all Democratic and Republican candidates)."

My analysis:

JRE is the most electable of all the democrats against the repugs.  He is also the most electable on a state by state basis against the repugs.

Remember:  I am biased.
