DEM DEBATE CHEAT...again liberals never win on a level playing field……if they cheat on little things they will cheat on the big ones as well…………………which means you.

FLASHBACK: Jerry Brown on His First Stint as Governor:'It's All a Lie... I Didn't Have a Plan for California'...

REPUBLICANS 'GOTTA SIT IN THE BACK', Obama brings back racial divide from the 50’s

Obama tells Hispanics, don’t set out election, you will only help OUR enemies………..and this fool calls himself the president. He won’t call terrorist OUR enemies, but will call Americans enemies to illegal Hispanics.

• An aide to the Senate majority leader repeatedly lied to federal agents and submitted false documents to Homeland Security to cover up her illegal seven-year marriage to Lebanese national, left, who was the subject of an Oklahoma terror probe.

Let me add to that list...

Alex Sink, democrat seeking the governorship of FL agreed to CNN's rules during last night's debate.

During a commercial break her personal make-up woman brought a phone with a text message which Sink CHOSE to read. Sink could have refused the message, but she took it in clear violation of the rules. It's on tape.

Sink said she fired the aide (whom she did not name), but Sink should fire herself for the poortjudgement she exercised. Just an example of what to expect from her.

When under pressure Sink makes poor decisions.

NO to Alex Sink!

It's no different there than anywhere else. ALL the elections will we unpredictable. No one should take any election for granted. VOTE. Don't listen to the lame stream corporate media or people who recommend that you not vote. Voter suppression is a serious issue and there are many unscrupulous people who want to discourage people from voting.

Even so-called Christian leaders don't want most Americans to vote.

Our vote is the most powerful weapon we have against unlimited campaign financing. A huge amount of the BUSH TARP (taxpayer money) is being used to finance Republican campaigns. It's like pouring salt on a wound.

THINK and VOTE.

Former California governor Jerry Brown is out with a new ad as he attempts to win back the job he held from 1975 to 1983. For the second time in a week, the Democratic nominee is using the words of Republican opponent Meg Whitman against her.

"You know 30 years ago, anything was possible in this state," Whitman is shown saying at the beginning of the new commercial. Text then appears asking, "Who was governor 30 years ago?" Jerry Brown's name soon appears beneath the question.

The ad flashes back to clips from Brown's tenure as governor, while a narrator says that the Democrat "cut waste, got rid of the mansion and the limo." The spot continues to rattle off more of Brown's accomplishments before cutting back to more from Whitman. "I mean it's why I came to California," she says.

Last week, a Brown ad showed Whitman and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger repeating each other nearly word-for-word for a full minute.

Witless spends (so far)$160M of her own money and all she can come up with is recycle old Ahnold ad's?

Witman may not win, but when they elect a pot smoking, hungover hippie the people of California lose as well. Brown isn't called moonbeam for nothing.

Californians must not see the reality of how their state got in the situation it is in financially. Progressive Liberalism is responsible for 12% unemployment, a economy in the tank and the state is near bankruptcy. But what do they do time and time again vote the same legislature into office responsible for the mess. Go figure that logic.
Is the entitlement folks that much in control of the ballot that sanity doesn't prevail. There comes a time when the well runs dry as they say. Californian is at the edge of the cliff and those folks are kidding themselves on continued sweet pensions, and social services. Because it is going to dry up, the spending madness is responsible for California's woe's as is the country at a whole. Progressives are ruining this country, and putting it on a bleak road leading to non existance.

Dear as a write in candidate, the good people of Alaska can decide whether Daddy's seat goes to her or the teapublicant Miller or otherwise.

That is how "the people's seat" works - even in alaska!

You are right. I meant to call her a career politician. Republicans can have bad candidates as well as Democrats. But the basic thought was another politician that thinks they can have a Senate seat by birth.

Call me when you want to discuss Brown's interview on CNN right after losing the govenorship, he said, " He lied, he said it was all a lie, he had no real plan to help California, he just said what the people wanted to hear..........You will see it soon in an AD from Meg soon.

Voter reports problem with ballot machine
Man said he voted straight-party ticket and got opposite results
October 23, 2010 4:00 PM
P. Christine Smith
Sun Journal Staff
A Craven County voter says he had a near miss at the polls on Thursday when an electronic voting machine completed his straight-party ticket for the opposite of what he intended.
Sam Laughinghouse of New Bern said he pushed the button to vote Republican in all races, but the voting machine screen displayed a ballot with all Democrats checked. He cleared the screen and tried again with the same result, he said. Then he asked for and received help from election staff.
“They pushed it twice and the same thing happened,” Laughinghouse said.“That was four times in a row. The fifth time they pushed it and the Republicans came up and I voted.”

LAS VEGAS -- Some voters in Boulder City said they are concerned about fraud at the electronic ballot box.
Voter Joyce Ferrara said when they went to vote for Republican Sharron Angle, her Democratic opponent, Sen. Harry Reid's name was already checked.
Ferrara said she wasn't alone in her voting experience. She said her husband and several others voting at the same time all had the same thing happen.
"Something's not right," Ferrara said. "One person that's a fluke. Two, that's strange. But several within a five minute period of time -- that's wrong."

Fair enough. I don't agree with you on, well, anything and find you to be frustratingly ignorant of basic facts and overly partisan, but I am not going to argue with you on this one.

Murkowski is pulling a Lieberman. She got beat fairly in the GOP primary, so she has no business running as a Republican.

Putting aside your illogical fear of and hate for your fellow Americans, it's nice to see that you guys on the Right are finally waking up to the problems of paperless electronic voting machines. Perhaps we can all come together to do away with the unaccountable machines so we can finally have full faith in the legitimacy of our elections.

Senator Lieberman did not inherit his seat from Daddy. He was side tracked by some leftwing whacko, lost the Primary, but won big in the General
