Republicas hiding as democrats why Shirley Moore Capito has no one to run aganist her.

CHARLESTON, W.Va.-- Although counting heads prior to a legislative party caucus is an imprecise science, it appears going into a House Democratic caucus some time later this month, House Judiciary Chairman Tim Miley, D-Harrison, has more than enough votes at the moment to win the majority nomination as House speaker.

While that would be a victory for those wishing to (mostly) maintain the status quo in House leadership, and a victory for the labor unions that backed Miley, the biggest winners in a Miley speakership (at least they seem to think so) is the state GOP.
==========
2014 will be the last election cycle that state Republicans will be able to use President Barack Obama as the boogeyman in the campaign
.=========

While the GOP tried to link Obama with Joe Manchin in the 2010 U.S. Senate special election, and with Earl Ray Tomblin in the 2011 and '12 gubernatorial elections, voters didn't buy that the two conservative Democrats were aligned with Team Obama.

However, that strategy might have a better chance with a more liberal, labor-backed trial lawyer as leader of the House of Delegates.

Remember, Republicans need to pick up just five seats to take control of the House, after an 85-year stretch as the minority party. Fueling GOP optimism is that Shelley Moore Capito will be at the top of the ticket, likely with no serious Democratic opposition in the 2014 U.S. Senate race.

*

To that end, a whisper campaign trying to link Harry Keith White, D-Mingo, to an alleged federal investigation of Team Mingo PAC seems to have had the desired effect, making uncommitted House Dems leery of siding with the Finance chairman in the speaker's race.

Peculiar timing, then, that GOP operative Rob Cornelius just happened to file election law complaints against White, Sen. Art Kirkendoll, D-Logan; Senate candidate Mark Wills; Agriculture Commissioner Walt Helmick; and Treasurer John Perdue on May 23 and 24 (and distributed press packets on the 24th), right in the midst of the speaker's race.

Never mind that these are minor, slap-on-the-wrist, refund-the-contributions type infractions, or that White's contribution was from surplus from his 2010 campaign; the timing is of primary interest here.

Virtually all the activity in question took place prior to the May 2012 primary elections, and the pertinent financial disclosures were filed by the PAC between April and mid-June of 2012, and have been gathering dust (or the electronic-record equivalent thereof) in the Secretary of State's office ever since.

Considering that the PAC raised and spent a grand total of about $5,000, it couldn't have taken 11 months to analyze those reports, could it? Repubadents do not want a dem runing/her.

You just resurrected this post from the grave with your remark about wanting to give it some rest. Way to go you are a grade A genius. You just did the opposite of what you wanted. Now its floating up at the top of the page where rubes luke you will want to regurgitate their uninformed opinion detritus into it because they are under the delusion that what they think is somehow intelligent and meaningful. This place has less meaning than an old piss stained urinal you fart huffing imbeciles.

Oh my my what an astute observation you have made there master observer. I should perhaps imbibe of the font of knowledge from whence you have partaken. How many beers did you suck back before deciding to share with us this golden nugget of knowledge oh wise one?
I am absolutely astounded by the inebriated aptitude with which you have stated the obvious. The complexity of thought put behind your bold observation is truly an unfathomable marvel. Such a thing could have only come about from being dropped on your head one to many times. Do us a favor and go observe the effects of venting your cars exhaust in through the windows with you inside behind the wheel.
