Timid Democrats will be in for a surprise on Election Day  

eNewsReference.com By : Staff Reporting

I have a feeling Democrats are going to wake up after Election Day going, eww and aww looking at the glacial shift in the political landscape. If the polls and analysts are correct, both Houses of Congress will be Republican. Maybe the Democrats will have a period of self-reflection like the Republicans did after the 2012 race.

The Democrats might ask themselves, how it is that affordable health care has so many popular and accepted components and still be politically poisonous.  How can so much political capital be squandered vis-à-vis defense and foreign policy?

White folks who were enthusiastic about Obama’s candidacy are shouting I don’t like his policies, but can’t give a definitive reason as to why, with the noticeable exception of Gwyneth Paltrow who is wholeheartedly all in for the President.

It is hard to call some of the Republican rage against the administration bigotry, or is it? One would have to reason that Obama’s approval ratings have tumbled because when the going got tougher they decided not to champion their own issues. It makes a tougher race for candidates like Jeanne Shaheen against former Senator Scott Brown; who was given his a** to him against Senator Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts.

I don’t know why they keep calling it a 24 hour news cycle; it’s actually a minute by minute or hourly news cycle nowadays and the Republicans has exploited it so much that Fox News, Breitbart and talk radio shows around the country can be deemed the ‘Fourth Branch of Government’s call for the end of Government’.

For all the talk of Obama’s campaign behemoth, did it run for the caves? The BarackObama.com YouTube Channel’s last post was in 2013. It has dwindled to over a half millions subscribers, but I can’t help but thinking what if the old Obama campaign apparatus was back in full swing. Could it help swing some state races for the Dems?

Republicans never left campaign and strategy mode. They made it their mission to ridicule the President at every stop, even made it a point to say that Vladimir Putin was a stronger leader. Even when they’ve had the worst blunders they’ve still made their base believe that giving arms to so-called moderate Syrians, which would have ended up in the hands of ISIS, was the only solutions to defeat President Assad. John McCain even demanded boots on the ground.

Foreign Policy novices like Senator Kelly Ayotte, championed short-sighted tactical solutions and questioned a handicapped administration that has to strategically think long-term and measure lasting implications that can’t be squeezed into the news cycle.

USA Today By : Staff Reporting

When President Obama returned to the campaign trail Sunday, he re-introduced one of his favorite characters.

Paul: African-American leaders may not yet embrace GOP  

Politico By : Staff Reporting

Sen. Rand Paul tells POLITICO that the Republican presidential candidate in 2016 could capture one-third or more of the African-American vote by pushing criminal-justice reform, school choice and economic empowerment.

“If Republicans have a clue and do this and go out and ask every African-American for their vote, I think we can transform an election in one cycle,” the Kentucky Republican said in a phone interview Thursday as he was driven through New Hampshire in a rental car. - Full Article

Can New Hampshire still be Independent after electing Senator Scott Brown?  

eNewsReference.com By : Staff Reporting

New Hampshire First in the Nation, Live Free or Die and New Hampshire’s Assertive Independence will be toppled with the election of Scott Brown.

For all those Republicans harping about the influence of Massachusetts’s politics let’s go ahead and put our support behind a moderate Senator who was too tepid to win south of the border. How can New Hampshire conservatives call themselves independent with record amounts from big oil and Wall Street propping Scott Brown’s campaign up?

The only support Scott Brown has given New Hampshire thus far is in words only; there is no legislative record. Big money wouldn’t support a conservative of and by New Hampshire, so Kelly Ayotte threw her support with the money.
