Let me try to be concise with this summary. Obama wins the presidency and Blago-D, Illinois Govenor (a criminal and impeached Govenor) appoints Burris-D (now under ethics investigation) who will not seek election for the Junior Senator seat from Illinois. The race comes down to five-term Rep. Mark Steven Kirk, the expected Republican nominee, who is running for Mr. Obama’s seat. The Democratic front-runner is state Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias, whom an opposing Democratic campaign adviser calls a “deeply flawed” candidate. Hmmm, what does “deeply flawed” actually mean? His family bank, where Alexi served as an officer, made loans to Tony Rezko, who is now sitting in a penitentiary. If Kirk wins, that means that Obama’s former Senate seat will go to a Republican. Face slap number one.
Now, let’s talk about Joe (don’t mess with Joe) Biden’s seat in Delaware. Rep. Michael N. Castle, a Republican who has won nine statewide elections as the state’s only House member, has been leading state Attorney General Beau (don’t mess with Beau?) Biden in polls. Beau, if you haven’t figured it out yet is Joe’s son. So much for the no cronyism rule of the Dems. Beau has not decided if he’s going to run yet, but either way, the odds are that Biden’s Senate seat will also go to a Republican. Face slap number two.
Don't mess with Joe or Beau?

With an election less than a year away and pending healthcare, cap & tax, and other spending bills in the House and Senate, how many Democrats are willing to sacrifice their careers for a President with a 44% approval rating after only a year in office? Dirty, slimy Harry Reid can’t find 60 votes to pass healthcare, Cap & Trade seems DOA in the Senate and now Barry O’s numbers are still tanking. He’s got a big problem, and it’s not the Republicans. It’s his own party who can’t agree on anything. Poor Obama.

This interesting thing about the chart below is that it takes every known poll out there and charts it to come up with the average. EVERY poll listed below the chart (click link below) has the people who oppose the healthcare bill substantially higher. Do you think the Senators and Representatives could take their heads out of their…um…you know, and take a minute to read the polls or even, I don’t know, maybe ask their constituents? I will ask the question yet again. Didn’t we elect these people to REPRESENT us? If we do not want this bill by an overwhelming majority, then why are they forcing this bill on us?
Have you noticed that they are not talking about improving the healthcare we receive, they are spending countless hours negotiating items that they can get other Senators to agree on. Public option, abortion, etc. These things have nothing to do with the way our healthcare is delivered only administered; along with substantial bribes for Senators on the fence. This bill has nothing to do with your health and everything to do with controlling a huge sector of the economy and our lives. Continue to call your Senators and urge them to vote against the bill and to convince their Democrat colleagues to vote against it.
Do Americans Want Health Care Reform, or Not?
Polled support for the health care plan wending its way through Congress continues to crash downward in the polls. And before you say it, it’s not just Rasmussen, which has actually been pretty much in the middle of the other polls. Here’s where we stand as of today:

Another Rasmussen poll just released puts our dear leader at 45% approval. Not a good week for the president. When Chris (tingle up my leg) Matthews, Saturday Night Live, and Europe all turn against you, it doesn’t look like a lot of hope anymore because of the change.
45% and sinking
If this doesn’t scare the bejeepers out of the Democrats who are considering voting for healthcare, cap & trade, and anything else on the Obama agenda, then nothing will. In the real world, which is way different than inside the Beltway, people are telling their Representatives how to vote. In Fantasyland, the Representatives are committing political suicide. The Dems are handing the 2010 elections to the Republicans on a silver platter. Will they take it?
Why is he still smiling in the picture?
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 27% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-two percent (42%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -15. This is the lowest Approval Index rating yet measured for President Obama

Only 38% of voters now approve Obamacare and 60% believe the plan will increase health care costs. Most (54%) also believe passage of the plan will hurt the quality of care. Then WHY ARE WE DOING IT? The answer is simple. The Democrats have one chance to pass this and then their window to control your lives and a huge part of the economy closes; probably for another 50 years. Couple this with the most recent Gallup poll showing Obama’s huge decline in popularity and it spells disaster for the Dems in 2010.
Just 38% of voters now favor the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s the lowest level of support measured for the plan in nearly two dozen tracking polls conducted since June.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% now oppose the plan.

Hey Senate Democrats – Are you listening? This guy is marching you off of a cliff and he doesn’t care. All he cares about is getting something through. It doesn’t matter if it is a bad bill; he doesn’t care. Are you listening? Would you rather work in the private sector? That can be arranged.
