I'll give you both the benefit of the doubt because you're not in Connecticut.
I AM in Connecticut.
.
people don't really like Linda here in CT.
she, her husband, and the WWE are considered shameful here.
many see her candidacy as a person trying to buy her way into politics.
and she IS taking hits from both the left and the right, even republicans, and there are a lot of them in Fairfield County, don't like her.
(sort of like Ned Lamont)

Because she is looking to the left AND to the right, does that make her two faced?

Connecticut is a left wing haven for garbage. They're already a socialist state with incredibly high taxes and a never ending leach trail of Democrats looking to latch on to the tax payers vein to suck even more blood.

They need "Change" not another Tax and Spend Liberal Democrat.

Attention a-nitwit!!! Do you think an individual like McMahon could possibly be so low as to be connected to bill ayers and marxism like b. h. obama? Is McMahon anti-Americanism or Americanism? Does her democRat opponent share the ideology of b. h. obama and bill ayers? Do you share the ideology of bill ayers and b. h. obama? In your own words tell this forum what kind of person do you think it takes to be able to launch their political career from the home of people such as bill ayers and his wife. Do you have any friends, associates or mentors like bill ayers? If not, why not?

New Obama panic: Romney crowd sizes

August 13, 2012 | 3:19 pm

Paul Bedard
The Washington Examiner

The recent frantic email theme to supporters from Team Obama about Mitt Romney's run-away fundraising successes has been expanded to the crowd size gap between the thousands who rushed out over the weekend to see Romney and new running mate Rep. Paul Ryan and the hundreds who cheered on President Obama.

The big worry expressed in a new email from Obama's Chicago HQ: "The Republican base is energized." The reason: Romney attracted 15,000 at a rally over the weekend.
The email:
Paul --

I just got this disturbing report: Yesterday's Romney-Ryan rally in North Carolina pulled in an overflow crowd of 15,000 people.
There's no spinning that number. It's a LOT of people, and the Republican base in energized.

that's exactly right.
the CT republicans look down on her.
and the CT democrats see her as a phony.

she couldn't buy her way in last time, it wont work this time either.
.
and anyone that thinks that the whole of Connecticut is "blue" is not paying very close attention.
.
.
(I do think it's funny that people equate this story to national news though, and post spam regarding Obama/Biden; as if they are relevant at all.)

you have no clue what is going on in CT.
.
FACT: for every dollar that connecticut residents pay in federal income taxes, the state of Connecticut only gets 0.69 back.

Connecticut is hardly a leech on the system, quite the opposite actually.

Heavens no, why would I be afraid of someone trying to win an argument by hurling opinion as their only means of attack. You are welcome to come up with some facts of why she should not run or be a Senator, other than she has money, and we can discuss it all you want.

yeah, the opinions of the voters of Connecticut.
(which are the ones that won't vote for her)
.
she should run, somebody has to.
I just think it's a shame that she continues to waste her husbands money on an election that she can't win.
.
oh, wait, that's right, it's a tax deduction for her.
brilliant!

there are 414,539 registered republicans in CT
McMahon got 83,686 votes in the primary.
Shays got 31,420 votes in the primary.
299,433 registered republicans didn't even bother to vote (myself included)
.
there are 734,431 registered democrats in CT
and there are 828,252 unaffiliated voters.

(not surprised she won the primary,based on such low voter turnout. I would be shocked if she wins in November, time will tell though)

Yep, there are always reasons, you know action causes reaction. A lot of typical voting models will fall in November.

We talk about the Ryan plan 24/7......here is the Obama plan.

Price of Ground Beef Hits Record High....nothing like causing inflation

OBAMA: To protect ethanol, raise meat prices... also increases the debt

Gasoline $4 a gallon +
