Dems: Will you still love me in November?

The flood of Ohioans going to the polls Tuesday and asking for Democratic ballots has Ohio Democrats convinced that this year’s presidential election will be the one where Ohio goes “blue” for good. Will it?

Howard Wilkinson has the story here

Ohio is going to be so blue in November that the Buckeyes will have to change their team colors lest they be embarassed to associate themselves with the out-of-business Repugnicant Party.

Veto-proof the House!
Filibuster-proof the Senate!

Not that we'll need it with a Dem Prez, of course. :)

Adios, Chabot! I look forward to seeing you drive your 93 Buick around the west side.

Adios, Schmidt! Have fun back on the farm.

Adios, Turner! Good luck finding your wife another "consulting" job.

And to those trust-fund babies on the Repugs' staffs: have fun trying to find a job in the "free market" you right-wingers like to hype so much. Unless Daddy creates a make-work job for you at his business, that is.

Governor Strickland will get his Democratic House and Senate too!

And to think the Repugs manipulated those districts to suit themselves and we STILL will turn them out in droves!

At least the Democrats are publically proving how ignorant they are! At least they now sound as stupid as all of their welfare programs, Universal healthcare, their entitlement programs and NAFTA, which are all the true reason why our economy has been eroding.

I want to encourage you Democrats to keep on wandering in la-la land thinking that Ohio outside of Cuyahoga County and parts of the rust belt has slipped into your political pocket. It will be such an unmitigated pleasure to watch your complacent smiles turn into puzzled frowns in November. The majority of the people of Ohio, unlike the fruits, flakes and nuts of Cereal-land (California) and the arrogant SOBs from downtown Manhattan, have more common sense than to get stuck to the dem/lib tarbaby.

The Enquirer should ask Steve Chabot why his staff is electioneering over the Congressional email network -- which is against the law.

please keep thinking this. As one of the people who crossed party lines, I'll be back on the right side this November, rest assured. I did it to stop the Emperor Obama from coasting to the convention and so that her Heiness Hillary can fight on, get the claws out and pull the clothes off of Emperor Obama to reveal that the Emperor has no clothes at all.

Nope, .....I really don't see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you?

So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people. They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winning and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males between the ages 17 and 40 alone because of profiling..

As the writer of the award winning story "Forrest Gump" so aptly put it,
"Stupid is as stupid does."

As Nicholas Kristof first detailed, McCain's first wife was in a near-fatal car accident when he was in Vietnam and she was raising their children, an accident which debilitated her, causing her to gain substantial weight and actually lose several inches of height. McCain learned of how disfigured she was for the first time when he returned home in 1973.

A few years later, McCain began carrying on extramarital affairs, including with the very young, very pretty, and very rich heiress Cindy Hensley, for whom McCain eventually divorced his disfigured first wife in order to marry. McCain's three children (from his first marriage) were so disgusted by McCain's treatment of their mother that they boycotted the wedding. But not all was lost. Cindy's family money and Arizona connections launched McCain's political career.

Today's Must Read

F.B.I. Investigates Missing G.O.P. Money

On February 1st of this year, National Republican Campaign Committee Chairman Tom Cole (R-OK) abruptly released a statement about recently discovered "irregularities in our financial audit process." That was it: no details about whether money might have been stolen, just word that they'd seen fit to bring in the federal authorities.

The details, as they've come, have been embarrassing for the committee, which works to get Republicans elected to the House (which was already hurting in comparison to its Democratic counterpart before all this began).

According to The New York Times this morning, it all began to unravel when Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX), a CPA, asked to meet with the audit firm that was supposedly checking the NRCC's books, an idea that apparently no one had had for several years. Christopher Ward, then the NRCC's treasurer, finally relented, but then chickened out 30 minutes before and fessed up that there actually hadn't been any audits.

It was ultimately discovered that Ward had been faking the audits since 2003. The Politico, which laid out this general outline of events early last month, reported that Ward had forged everything, including the letterhead. So when it came time to actually talk to the people who'd supposedly written those fake reports, it all unraveled.

The FBI is currently investigating, and it's not clear yet why Ward was so keen to hide the real numbers. But as the Times reports this morning, the signs are not good. NRCC internal audits since Ward's discovery show that "hundreds of thousands of dollars are missing and presumed stolen." And it gets worse: there are apparently indications that "the financial irregularities might extend beyond the national committee to the campaign funds of individual Republican lawmakers who also worked with Mr. Ward, a longtime party operative."

Ward had been with the NRCC since 1993 and worked for dozens of Republican campaign committees, political action committees, and other organizations. It'll be interesting to see what the FBI turns up.

John McCain increasingly is looking like the hapless Hubert H. Humphrey of 1968. Captive to his own partisan support for a disastrous war; too timid to stake out an agenda for change; passively permitting an unpopular president to embrace him as heir; squandering what little was left of his good repute in shabby political maneuvering. It's Humphrey all over again. McCain is busy tying a dead weight around his shoulders that he imagines is the mantle of the presidency. The endorsement today by Bush went a long way toward sealing his fate.

During the rest of the campaign the president's embrace will become painful, paralyzing and toxic, just as it did for HHH. The press conference today gave a glimpse of what it will look like.

The thing that stands out most, apart from McCain's cringing presence, is how he passively allows Bush to dominate the event. Bush jumped on the first question to box McCain in as heir to his Iraq policy. It was in response to a question posed to both McCain and Bush:

"how the Republican Party... is going to make the case that you're going to provide the change that the voters seem to want, both on Iraq and the economy?"

Ignoring the economy (how typical), Bush gave a rambling version of his fear-mongering GWOT talk.

Finally, Bush permitted McCain to explain how he would offer voters the change they want.

"Thank you, sir. I don't have anything to add."

Heh, how Humphreyesque. No surprise, a chagrined McCain is already trying to figure out how to embrace his president while simultaneously ditching him.

Q "Senator McCain, given President Bush's low approval ratings, will this be a negative or a positive for you? And how much do you hope he'll campaign for you on the trail?"

SENATOR McCAIN: "I hope that he will campaign for me as much as is keeping with his busy schedule."

Yeah me too, Hubert.

Anon 11:29, good post! This has been a reliable republican district for 3 decades. The GOP spent well over $1 million trying to keep this seat at a time when the GOP is extremely cash strapped, because nobody is donating to them. The Dems on the other hand are flush with money.

There is going to be a Dem avalanche this fall. The economy is falling into an abyss, 80% of Americans want out of Iraq, Bush has a 19% approval rating and 3 out if 4 Americans surveyed say that this nation is on the wrong track. John W. McSame/McCain is offering us 4 more years of Bush policies-he's embraced every one of Bush's policies-plus he admits that he "doesn't understand the economy"; THERE IS NO WAY THAT AMERICANS WILL VOTE THIS OLD FOOL INTO OFFICE.

The Bush administration knew about 911 buy did nothing.

In this exclusive extract from his new book, Philip Shenon uncovers how the White House tried to hide the truth of its ineptitude leading up to the September 11 terrorist attacks.


Go here to find an easy-to-understand, extensive excerpt from a new book by Philip Shenon that reveals how the White House tried to hide the truth of its ineptitude leading up to the September 11 terrorist attacks.

And here are a few excerpts from the excerpts:

"Bin Ladin Planning Multiple Operations" (April 20)and "Bin Ladin Threats Are Real" (June 30) It was especially troubling for Hurley's team to realise how many of the warnings were directed to the desk of one person: Condoleezza Rice, the National Security Adviser. Emails from the National Security Council's counter-terrorism director, Richard Clarke, showed that he had bombarded Rice with messages about terrorist threats. He was trying to get her to focus on the intelligence she should have been reading each morning in the presidential and senior briefings

*Bin Ladin Public Profile May Presage Attack" (May 3)

*Terrorist Groups Said Co-operating on US Hostage Plot" (May 23)

*Bin Ladin's Networks' Plans Advancing" (May 26)

*Bin Ladin Attacks May Be Imminent" (June 23)

"Bin Ladin and Associates Making Near-Term Threats" (June 25)

*Bin Ladin Planning High-ProfileAttacks" (June 30)

*Planning for Bin Ladin Attacks Continues, Despite Delays" (July 2)

One more quote that sums things up depressingly accurately:

But what had happened in the White House in the first eight months of George Bush's presidency had all but guaranteed that 19 young Arab men with little more than pocket knives, a few cans of mace, and a misunderstanding of the tenets of Islam could bring the US to its knees.

Another GOP lawbreaker, our own Steve 'Combover' Chabot. Why hasn't the Enquirer reported this story?

Chabot’s office apologizes for apparently breaking House rules in campaign e-mail


A staffer working for Rep. Steve Chabot (R-Ohio) apparently broke House rules Friday, forwarding a request that congressional staffers send interns to the Republican National Committee (RNC) to make campaign-related phone calls.

The episode started when an aide at the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) sent an e-mail Friday to congressional staffers. The e-mail asked the GOP aides to send interns to the RNC to make phone calls for Jim Oberweis (R), who is running for former House Speaker Dennis Hastert’s (R-Ill.) vacated congressional seat in a special election Saturday.

“If you have interns sitting around today, please send them over to the RNC...to phone bank for Oberweis,” the e-mail states.

Matthew Lillibridge, a staff assistant in Chabot’s office, forwarded the e-mail to aides in other congressional offices, apparently violating House rules against using House resources for campaign purposes. Lillibridge used his House e-mail address, forwarding the e-mail to other addresses on the House e-mail server.

“It raises questions as to what other activities are taking place in Congressman Steve Chabot’s office on the taxpayer’s dime,” Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) spokesman Doug Thornell told The Hill. Democrats are targeting Chabot's seat this cycle.

Chabot spokesman George Cecala apologized for the incident.

“It’s not our office policy to conduct business this way...We apologize if there was an appearance of impropriety, which was certainly not our office’s intent. We apologize to the folks back home. We work hard to make sure that our staff is fully informed on the proper procedures,” Cecala said.

Cecala added that Chabot's office had been “quick to notify the ethics committee,” and that Lillibridge “is a young assistant who acted before he thought.” Lillibridge is 23 years old.

Defending the initial e-mail, NRCC spokeswoman Julie Shutley said that “congressional employees and interns are allowed to volunteer their time on campaigns...”

House rules state that “Official resources of the House must, as a general rule, be used for the performance of official business of the House, and hence those resources may not be used for campaign or political purposes.”

The NRCC staffer who sent the initial e-mail, when contacted by The Hill for comment, said he did not know of any rules prohibiting his request for interns. According to the NRCC, the staffer is a low-level employee.

Rep. Gene Green (D-Texas), a member of the House ethics committee, told The Hill the NRCC staffer’s request for interns “didn’t smell right.”

“I’m not sure if it’s illegal, but it sure sounds like it is,” Green said, noting that he never felt comfortable asking his congressional employees to do campaign work.

House GOP funk worsens
By: John Bresnahan and Josh Kraushaar
March 9, 2008 04:14 PM EST

For National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Cole (Okla.), every week seems to bring a new set of problems. On Saturday night, things got even worse.

With Democrat Bill Foster’s victory in the Illinois 14th District special election, Democrats now hold the seats occupied only 21 months ago by former Speaker Dennis Hastert (Ill.) and former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (Texas) — the two GOP lawmakers who ran the House from 1998 to 2006.

Since September, Cole has faced a barrage of bad news:

• The NRCC lags behind the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee by nearly $30 million in cash on hand.

• GOP House leadership endured an embarrassing scuffle when Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) tried to fire Cole’s top two staffers, during which Cole threatened to resign.

• There has been a wave of retirement announcements by veteran Republican lawmakers that will force the NRCC to defend what were once seen as safe GOP seats.

• Rep. Rick Renzi (R-Ariz.) was indicted on 35 federal corruption charges, which puts another Republican-controlled district in play.

• And the FBI continues its criminal investigation into a brewing accounting scandal that centers on the former NRCC treasurer’s activities.

But the GOP’s defeat in Illinois’ special election Saturday may trump those setbacks, at least in the short term. Cole and the House Republican leadership are blaming the loss directly on GOP candidate Jim Oberweis. A dairy owner who lost three consecutive statewide elections before Saturday, Oberweis has a long history of political baggage. He won the recent nomination without receiving the support of his Republican primary rival, state Sen. Chris Lauzen.

“By itself, this would not be that big of a deal, but coupled with everything else it will just deflate the [House Republican] Conference,” said an aide to one top GOP lawmaker. “And symbolically, losing Hastert’s seat is like the toppling of the Saddam statue in Baghdad for Republicans.”

Cole and the NRCC are desperately spinning Oberweis’ defeat as an isolated incident that is not endemic of further GOP losses in the fall. NRCC Communications Director Karen Hanretty, new to the panel after the previous spokeswoman resigned last month, said, “The one thing 2008 has shown is that one election in one state does not prove a trend. In fact, there has been no national trend this entire election season.”

McCain not always chummy with the press
Obama scores decisive win in Wyoming
Mehlman, Rove boost McCain campaign
Democrats, however, note that the NRCC spent $1.2 million, one-fifth of its cash hoard, in backing Oberweis’ ultimate defeat. That comes on top of the $2 million-plus that Oberweis spent from his own pocket during the race. The DCCC spent more than $1 million running ads against Oberweis.

Democrats also point out that Hastert never took less than 64 percent in the solidly Republican district, carried handily by President Bush in both 2000 and 2004.

Even better from Democrats’ perspective, the efforts on behalf of Oberweis by Hastert, House Minority Whip Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), their presumptive 2008 presidential nominee, were not enough to stave off Oberweis’ loss. All three Republican leaders had campaigned for Oberweis in recent weeks, with McCain attending a fundraiser for him last month that raised nearly $257,000.

House Republicans already faced a daunting political landscape as Election Day grows closer. Twenty-eight House Republicans have announced their retirements or have resigned this election cycle – and nearly half of those represent highly competitive districts.

Republicans are also privately pessimistic about retaining Democratic-trending suburban seats held by Reps. Tom Davis (Va.) and Jim Walsh (N.Y.), and they currenty lack a nominee for the open seat of retiring Rep. Jerry Weller (Ill.).

In addition, Republicans haven’t been able to field credible recruits against freshman Democratic Reps. John Hall of New York, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heath Shuler of North Carolina and Zack Space of Ohio — all of whom represent traditionally GOP districts that the party lost in the 2006 election.

On top of that, the DCCC maintains a huge fundraising advantage over its GOP counterpart, ending January with $35.4 million in cash, while the NRCC banked $6.4 million. That financial muscle will allow the Democrats to pour money into swing districts, giving the party a chance to pad its House majority.

Yet the situation isn’t entirely hopeless for Cole and the Republicans. They’ve successfully recruited some strong candidates in tough districts, including in the open seats of Reps. Deborah Pryce (R-Ohio) and Heather Wilson (R-N.M.). After a lackluster start, the NRCC’s fundraising has stabilized as well, with the GOP committee even narrowly outraising the DCCC in January. An upcoming House Republican dinner with President Bush should net the NRCC at least $6 million.

Also, with McCain presumably at the top of the Republican presidential ticket, the party has a chance to compete among independent voters in the Southwest, and he could help Republicans contest two Democratic-held seats in Arizona.

But the small bits of good news threaten to be overwhelmed by Oberweis’ embarrassing loss. Even the most pessimistic Republicans didn’t expect such a crushing defeat: Oberweis lost all but three counties, including Hastert’s heavily Republican home base of Kendall County.

Republicans say there’s no way that Boehner can get rid of Cole, despite grumbling about the Oklahoma Republican throughout GOP leadership ranks. “We’re just going to have to work that much harder,” a senior Republican staffer said Sunday morning.

They also hope that they can unseat Foster, a physicist, in November, when he goes before voters seeking a full term. “In a year where change seems to be the big theme in politics, we’re pretty content with the knowledge that over the next six months Foster will actually have a voting record in a Nancy Pelosi Congress,” said one top GOP staffer.

But Foster’s surprise win, in his first run for office, gave Democrats plenty to crow about, and it could further aid their already impressive fundraising advantage as K Street and corporate America look to jump on the winning bandwagon for November.

Foster’s victory “sends a political shock wave across America this election year,” DCCC Chairman Chris Van Hollen (Md.) said in a statement released after the results were announced Saturday night. A DCCC memo pointed out that “80 percent of the Republican open and Republican incumbent seats the DCCC is targeting this cycle have better Democratic performances than Illinois 14. Forty out of the 50 seats the DCCC is targeting have Democratic performances of 45 percent or higher.”
