I’ve been to every precinct in the city so far and this is what I saw.

In ward 6 where two years ago I stood alone a group held signs for republican candidates

Republicans in 2010 Ward 6

The only candidate on the democratic side promoted was Tom Foley for Sheriff

The only democrat signs in 6

I have never in my life seen more people holding signs for a question than for a candidate

Anti Question 1-3 electioneering

I was so struck by that I interviewed a gentleman there

Foley has drawn a fair amount of support. I’ve met him personally and I’m not surprised by that.

The man on the right is a republican but he is for Foley

There was a group of FSU students interviewing people for a government project, I asked them why they didn’t cover the Gunn event at the college, none of them had been told even though every teacher got an e-mail about it.

Where were these college folks when Gunn was on Campus?

In Ward five the turnout was VERY high, particularly in 5a

Ward 5 very busy

I talked to David Roth who I knew from high school, he was a year ahead of me.

In Ward 4 it was the same story

Two Poll workers in Ward 4

Ward 2 also had a very steady stream, their totals were already over the primaries before noon

Posing at the machine in Ward 2a

In ward three there were two big surprises. My mother who works the polls told me it was very steady, in the second ward the numbers were already over 800 by 12:30 p.m.

Ward 3 the busiest ward in town

In both wards 6 and 3 there were Democratic poll watchers checking to see if they needed to get their people out if they hadn’t voted. Two people I met at the Mayday march were also in 6 and 3. We disagree but they are very nice and I’m always pleased to see them.

I ran into John Olver in Ward 3. I still think he is dead wrong but I’ve learned to respect him as a gentleman who has never treated me with anything but respect. He has run a clean and honorable campaign.

John Olver and supporters in Fitchburg on election day

Ex Mayor Mylot was there as well, he was supporting the republican ticket. The men on the left holding signs for Lew held them for Bove in the primary at the same spot.

Ex Mayor Mylot in ward 3

The Shock of the day came as Bill Gunn showed up at the same time and he and Congressman Olver posed for a picture together.

Bill Gunn (r) and congressman John Olver (D) civil and honorable opponents

This was the picture of the day, although I think it will be a close race both have run positive, clean and issue oriented campaigns, it’s been an example to the entire nation.

In ward one the trend of incredible numbers continued:

Ward one with a full house

And the electioneering continued, the most popular democrat in the area is clearly Foley

Signs for foley in ward 1

Republicans signs were in every place except for ward 4 downtown.

Republicans holding signs in ward 1

Bottom line all signs point toward huge turnout and if the Scott Brown trend of January is a barometer, then I’d be worried if I was the left

Here are some videos from the day:

Before the crowd comes:

Jerry talked to me first

So Did Steve and Denise:

and Richard and Shirley:

And Linda:

I ran into Jen Caissie’s mom but didn’t know who she was when I started:

If you don’t know who Jen is here’s jen:

Since the left came to protest and unlike the tea party people decided to assault a driver who disagreed with them

The Media found the protesters interesting and the police stayed on top of them the entire time:

When things were done I talked to Ron:

And checked back with Jerry

It was a good little rally, not in the class of the Boston event but still effective. At least effective enough that it worried the left. Their actions during the pledge and the national anthem combined with the assault did more to hurt their cause than anything else.

Update:
Leftists nuts in VA too, at least they didn’t assault anyone.

Getting ready for the Red and Blue Political Horror Show

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 that the GOP dislikes the candidate.

It’s a cheap but inexpensive trick and an easy way to make $8 an hour but what else can they do:

With less than a week to go before November 2, it appears that Keating’s campaign is going with a “duck and cover” strategy and hoping the liberal base will deliver on Election Day (sound familiar?). In the past two weeks, Keating has pulled out of three debates, citing “other commitments.” He is probably wise. His past performances have done little to inspire confidence.

At a breakfast forum hosted by the South Shore Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, Keating twice said he would not have voted for the stimulus package. “I would not have supported that,” he said. “I would not have supported that particular stimulus package.” Later that day, his campaign released a statement saying that Keating “misspoke”: He would have voted for the stimulus, though he would have preferred “something more targeted to rebuilding our infrastructure.”

Keating has also flat-out refused to say whether or not he would support Nancy Pelosi for House speaker in the event that the Democrats retain their majority. When asked during a debate in Plymouth earlier this month, Keating, faced with frustrated audience members shouting, “Yes or no?” remained steadfast in his waffling, saying he would “keep an open mind.”

Meanwhile in ma-6 Tierney ducks and covers from his wife’s federal guilty plea

The Republican went after Tierney for not disclosing to the government millions of dollars that were in an account his wife managed for her brother, Robert Eremian. Eremian was indicted in August on charges that included racketeering, money laundering and operating an illegal gambling business.

“The congressman takes great pains to look at my financial disclosure report and to say that I have $1 million in Bank of America stock,” referring to information Tierney has publicized. “That’s my wife’s money. The congressman knows more about my wife than he does his own.”

In case you’ve forgotten the details:

The wife of Democratic incumbent Congressman John F. Tierney pleaded guilty today to charges she helped cover up her brother’s $7 million ownership stake in a Caribbean gambling operation by falsifying his federal tax returns.

And in ma-4 Sean Bielat raises money from the people who know Barney best:

Documents filed with the Federal Elections Commission show that in September, the Republican Bielat outraised Frank in the congressman’s hometown of Newton, $31,249 to $13,785.

He has also out-raised him overall.

And mind you these are the seats that the media is noticing. Democrats are pouring incredible amounts of money into ma-1 and ma-2 supposedly safe seats while Jim McGovern is in the fight of his life in ma-3 and Nikki Tsongas worries in ma-5.

If only democrats had tens of thousands of people to canvas today in Massachusetts to help out, oops sorry those guys are at the John Stewart Rally today.

The Big Red Wave will be a lot of fun.

Oh and expect the Wave is to hit va-9 too.

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”
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 attain heights only imaginable. I offer on the other hand candidates that want to dictate to you what healthcare you must have or not have, what you can and cannot to, and will sentence your children to a life of mediocrity.”

If anyone has put the choice in this election better, I haven’t heard it

Here is the video

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 for ideas that I totally disagree with

Gunn pointed out Olver has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on TV. He will be running some TV but could use about 40K to try to compete with Congressman Olver’s volume and put him over, can you help? if you can Click Here to contribute.
