We're not all hiding, though I am wearing a bag over my head tongue.gif !

I think the election is a tough call. I am a registered Republican, but I have always voted based on a persons stand on issues rather than his political party. I think our incumbent congressman and senator will win reelection, but I still think it is tough to say if todays headlines will affect the races or be a memory after next week's headlines.

Hey maisky, can I take the bag off now bag.gif ?

Have a great day!

There definitely seems to be something brewing on the political scene - and across the nation. I'm not one to take sides (democrat vs republican vs conservative vs liberal) - but you can not ignore the potential change in leadership in the house/congress.

Seems like alot of this is being driven by independent voters.

In Massachusetts we might be looking at our first black Governor. Deval Patrick leads Kerry Healy by 25% points. Only a few weeks left in the race - I don't think she can overcome those numbers. All Deval needs to do is cruise into election day.

Bill Clinton will be helping him this weekend in Worcestor.

Whats going on in everyones home state?

In Arizona, it looks like our Democratic governor will be easily reelected. Senator Kyl (Republican) seems to be pulling away in his race. Local congressman (Rick Renzi-R) seem to be on the way to reelection. He has been endorsed by several of the Navajo chapters here.

Overall, I think the Dems will pick up one seat here. That doesn't seem like much, but it is important considering the national scene right now.

Tricia and I will be working the polls as usual on November 7th. The Navajo Nation is also holding their election. There is a possibility that the Nation will elect it's first woman president. Considering the traditions here, that is an interesting proposition.

Here in Western NY one Republican (Tom Reynolds) is trying to avoid the fallout from his involvement in the Foley matter, while at the state level Democratic incumber comptroller Hevisi has lost a key supporter--Democratic Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, who barring a major upset, will be the next NY Governor. It seems that Mr. Hevesi got caught using a state staffer to chauffer his wife, an apparent violation of state law.
A fair number of people are sick of both parties--I suspect a credible third party/independent candidate would do well. However, I suspect that voter dismay at the choices being offered may make the voting highly unpredictable.
It does seem that Republicans are starting to distance themselves from GWB, which may backfire on them. I would not be surprised to see one or both houses go Democratic (not that there's anything truly democratic about the Democratic Party, which is controlled by leftists who are seemingly uninterested in the vast majority of folks who do not support the leftist platform).

I think the idea of "service" was dropped from "public service" years ago and both parties are equally compromised. The public they care about have "Inc." after their names and those dollars govern the attention to anyone's needs, assuming a degree of concern to begin with. Pundits must justify their paychecks, and licentiousness and corruption turning the majority tide is an exagerated attempt to find a cause prior to an outcome. Grasping at straws anyone? Looks too close to call to me, both in my state and nationally.

I'm hoping for Charlie Crist here in Florida. My local IAFF thumbs_up.gif union has endorsed him, local law enforcment has endorsed him and the NRA has endorsed him. Oh, he does have an "R" after his name. He'll be a great replacement for JEB who most Floridians approved of. Probably more so then his bro.

Hey John, I'm not hiding! Wish I had as much to be proud of as you do wink.gif !

Seriously, many conservatives have not done a good job. If they get voted out, it's their own fault. If some of your folks on the left get in, let's see how they do. Only fair, don't you think?

Have a great day, my friend!

[tongue planted firmly in cheek] Politics in the U.S. has always been very cyclical. The republicans gain power for a few years until the Dems finally dig up enough dirt to win an election, at which point we recognize that things really could be much worse. Then we regain our senses and put conservatives back into office. biggrin.gif

Seriously, I cast my absentee ballot yesterday, because I'll be at work on election day. I voted for one replublican, 2 libertarians, 1 Alaskan Indepence Party and pinched my nose close as I voted for 1 stinkin' democrat. Actually, it's more accurate to say I voted AGAINST 5 incumbants.

Unfortunately, I doubt there was an honorable person among any of them.

haynes9.

If living to the ripe old age 62 is something to be proud of, then yes, I am proud. But as far as politicians are concerned, it always seems to come down to the better of two evils.

Needless to say, I would buy a used car from any of them.

Take care,
John

Yes, you do have a right to be proud for making it to 62! And I can't disagree with what you said about politicians.

Hey, this is scary! Is it legal for us to agree laugh.gif ?

Have a great day, John.
