Cooking supper right now so only time for quick summary About 350 people attended. It was great to see friends who I was on the Bus with, they were rather surprised to see me and I'm flattered to be remembered. Lots of candidates including Marty Lamb (ma-3) Jen Caissie (Gov Counsel) Rodney Josephson (ma rep) … Continue reading Just back from the Worcester Tea Party express rally: UPDATE PHOTOS
If you have to describe the mood in this state for democrats FEAR is the best word to describe it. It is palatable, sitting democrats tout their conservative records, statewide office holders duck debates and people who have had term after term spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to try to keep seats that they … Continue reading One word for Democrats in Massachusetts FEAR!
I had to dash off to morning mass but watching the MSM this weekend and this morning it is clear that the media has given up on persuading the voters. They have come to the conclusion that the republicans are going to win and win big, gone are the optimistic words about close races and … Continue reading Today is media credibility day!
Talked to Bill Gunn before we went on the air: For those who consider this seat safe, $850k is a lot to spend on a safe seat when dems are in trouble all over the country.
In his spectator article: John Barrow is a Democrat endorsed by Barack Obama. Or, depending on who he's talking to, John Barrow is fighting against Barack Obama and the Democrats. Judging from his campaign's mixed messages, Barrow believes a majority of voters in Georgia's 12th District want to re-elect a one-man bipartisan compromise. There have … Continue reading Stacy McCain gives the perfect illustration of this election
When Lisa Murkowski lost her primary and decided to go write in the GOP decided to play it with kid gloves, after all they all knew her, it's not like she was going to go and caucus with democrats...oh wait: Dana Bash of CNN reports on Twitter that Murkowski said republicans should not count on … Continue reading Murkowski and Obama sitting in a Tree, K-i-s-s-i-n-g
If you missed my live blog of last night here are some photos to enjoy I actually would have liked to have had more democrats we only had about 4 out of nearly 27 candidates but its a question of energy and putting the e
I talked to Marty Lamb before he went on air. He ended up staying all night leaving at 1 a.m. There are a lot of Democratic races around the nation that really could have used the resources that Jim McGovern has been forced to expend in defending this seat. That Big Red Wave will owe … Continue reading Voices of the Candidates: Marty Lamb at the WCRN all nighter

Noticed on Twitter a new person tweeting me about ma-10 who is pushing the narrative of Jeff Perry as bad cop et/al. the user is named TeapartyUsa1 and has under 30 followers. Most likely a paid tweet to go after republicans in the last weekend of the campaign as his tweets are directed to suggest … Continue reading Democrats running scared and dirty in Massachusetts
Stacy McCain is on the road again planning to hit Va, Tenn and Ga races in the final weekend to see what is going on. In Va-9 where Morgan Griffith is the GOP standard-bearer the news from Stacy's latest for the American Spectator sounds very familiar in more ways than one: First democrats running from … Continue reading More of the same in Va-9 in more way than one
A lot of people are breathless on Cook's moving Barney Frank from "likely democrat" to "lean democrat". Anyone who has been actually paying attention to this race on the ground has seen for weeks that all the momentum has been Sean Bielat way. Anyone looking at Bumper stickers in the state over the last two … Continue reading The Lean vs Likely on Barney Frank
Tuesday at the debate I was talking Big Red Wave with an aide to a republican candidate for statewide office, although he was feeling highly confident on his local race when I said to him that the wave would be even bigger. I started mentioning the anecdotal evidence I've seen in district after district he … Continue reading On Tuesday evening we are going to find out who is right on O’Donnell
That is the single biggest take away line from the Jon Stewart / President Obama appearance on comedy central: “You ran on very high rhetoric, hope and change, and the Democrats this year seem to be running on, ‘Please baby, one more chance’,’’ Mr. Stewart said at one point. At another, he asked the president … Continue reading Yes we can: BUT!
At What if (One of our featured blogs of the Month) Peg links to an Ed Koch column that sees what I do: It is for these reasons, I believe, the coming November tsunami will roll across America and give the Republicans, who are undeserving of the honor, control of both Houses. The American public … Continue reading Peg and Ed Koch get it
Well it's been 48 hours since that last post I'm sure it's was just a blip on the scene of the national election: Thirty-four more people will be charged with voter fraud in Hennepin County in the 2008 election, County Attorney Mike Freeman announced Tuesday, bringing the total cases of alleged abuse to 47 for … Continue reading And Democratic tactics continue to be “interesting”
Yesterday's debate was not broadcast live, but I got every question and statement so without further ado here is the forum: The rules explained: Opening Statement Bill Gunn (R): Key Line: "People working is not a government revenue enhancing program, it is a people revenue enhancing program" Opening Statement Michael Engel (I): Key Line: "We … Continue reading Yesterday’s Debate the video
Still preparing the full videos of yesterday's debate but this statement from Bill Gunn expresses perfectly the difference between conservatives and liberals and liberalism "I offer you the difference between the three candidates today. I offer you on the one hand a candidate that respects liberty, respects freedom, respects the potential of every individual to … Continue reading Liberalism vs Conservatism in 3 sentences
All three candidates graciously agreed to speak to me after the debate: It was quite a thing to hear a democrat actually defend Obamacare and not talk about repeal, it was almost refreshing. If you're going to vote for something; own it! This was my first meeting with Mr. Engel, he is a good advocate … Continue reading Voices of the Candidates, John Olver (d), Michael Engel (i)and Bill Gunn (r) Ma-1
