Maybe Obama WANTS to lose the house... all his actions lately suggest that he's either given up or willingly throwing the midterm elections. I'm sure he thinks he somehow won't be impeached, but we know that is guaranteed if the GOP wins the house.
It certainly doesn't seem like the white house is trying... their hamfisted response to the ground zero "mosque" is telling... throws a bomb out there without any support or backup and leaves fellow dems hanging in the wind.
House Democrats are mad that he's doing an oval office speech on Iraq, when he should be doing one on the economy. Crazy stuff...
I remember that the GOP thought about having their convention in C-town... made me want to wretch!
The facilities would be great! The Q arena is top notch, but there is also the Wolstein Center, the IX Center and Cleveland Browns Stadium if Obama wants to do what he did in Colorado again. There will be a casino in town to help entertain the visitors, too. I almost forgot about the new convention center being built as well.
The big question is whether there is enough hotel space for the conventioneers. That's always been a problem in Cleveland. Event the smallest conventions book up hotel space for miles around. There may be more hotel space created when the new convention center opens.
One crazy thought would be to open up the new dorms at Cleveland State University. They can start classes one week late, if necessary.
Before trying and executing the man over a newspaper article (one that was provided by Linda McMahon... by the tone of the article, it seems that she wrote it herself and not just provided the oppo research to the Times on it)... maybe, just maybe, we should at least hear what Blumenthal has to say on the matter?
I would think that if you are being swiftboated, you'd want that courtesy, too... you know... the right to defend yourself.
Maybe we should give him... I don't know... a day, at least, to answer this campaign ad, I mean newspaper article? Is a day too much? Maybe like 12 hours before we all take him to the electoral gallows?
Patty Murray is doing fine, even against Rossi (look at Rasmussen today)... Feingold isn't going to quit. Specter will die trying to get re-elected. Mikulski already said she's running again. Everyone who could have retired already has.
Hey, maybe we'll get lucky and Blanche Lincoln will retire!!
