Sarah Palin Backed Hoffman Severely Beats out Scozzafava in polls; Dede Withdraws; GOP switches support to Hoffman

*Breaking News*

Doug Hoffman Wins Conservative Political Battle as the true conservative candidate

palin hoffman pawlenty

The RNC Backed candidate Dede Scozzafava was the Vote Splitter, not Doug Hoffman.
Trailing Doug Hoffman by 16% in the Siena poll conducted Oct. 27-29 and released today, the true Vote Splitter has surfaced… it was Dede.

GOP Backed Candidate, Dede Scozzafava, Republican Candidate for New Jersey’s 23rd District Seat in the US House of Representatives announced to the media today that she has suspended her Campaign.

This is a serious win for Sarah Palin and other big name GOP Heavy Weights who Disagreed with the GOP Business as Usual Forces such as Newt Gingrich and Michael Steel who backed a Socialist ACORN Endorsed RINO and rejected a true Reagan Conservative, Doug Hoffman.

This Victory Speaks of the Power of Reagan Conservatism: 912ers, Tea Partiers, and Political Backer of Doug Hoffman: Sarah Palin.

The Big Name Republicans Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee, who choose to Remain on the Sidelines in this fight between Scozzafava and Hoffman, are now rewarded with knowing looks and with appropriate note taking for their lack of Backbone.

Not taking a stand in this internal GOP Power Struggle is Political Cowardice in my book, thus has damaged Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee in the eyes of true Conservatives who backed Doug Hoffman prior to Dede throwing in the towel.

Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee
obviously put
Politics Before Principles

Excerpt from a Politico article:

Republican Dede Scozzafava announced Saturday that she is suspending her campaign in the Nov. 3 House special election in New York, a dramatic development that increases the GOP’s chances of winning the contentious and closely-watched race.

“In recent days, polls have indicated that my chances of winning this election are not as strong as we would like them to be. The reality that I’ve come to accept is that in today’s political arena, you must be able to back up your message with money—and as I’ve been outspent on both sides, I’ve been unable to effectively address many of the charges that have been made about my record,” she said in a statement.

“It is increasingly clear that pressure is mounting on many of my supporters to shift their support. Consequently, I hereby release those individuals who have endorsed and supported my campaign to transfer their support as they see fit to do so. I am and have always been a proud Republican.”

Her decision came as a Siena Research Institute poll released Saturday confirmed that her support has all but collapsed over the last month. In her statement, Scozzafava acknowledged that while her name will continue to appear on the ballot, “victory is unlikely.”

The Siena poll conducted Oct. 27-29, in line with other recent polls, showed Democrat Bill Owens holding a razor-thin lead over Conservative Party nominee Doug Hoffman, 36 percent to 35 percent.

Scozzafava trailed far behind at 20 percent, with 9 percent of voters still undecided.

The National Republican Congressional Committee will now be throwing its support to Hoffman, after endorsing Scozzafava and deriding the Conservative Party candidate in statements throughout much of the race.

The fortunes of Scozzafava and Hoffman had nearly flipped over the last month as national attention focused on the upstate New York race, which has become a rallying point for grassroots conservatives.

Conservatives have assert that Scozzafava, a GOP establishment-backed state assemblywoman who supports abortion rights and gay marriage, is far too liberal for them to support and numerous prominent GOP figures have recently endorsed Hoffman.

Scozzafava, who in the beginning of the month was the frontrunner with a 7-point lead over Owens in an Oct. 1 Siena poll, saw her support crater while Hoffman surged from a distant third place to a virtual tie in the polls with Owens.

With Scozzafava slipping in the polls and her candidacy dividing the GOP, national Republicans began hedging their bets on her campaign and have recently signaled that they would no longer actively resist Hoffman’s candidacy.

National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (R-Texas) told POLITICO Thursday that he would welcome Hoffman “with open arms.” On Friday, Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele told POLITICO that a Hoffman victory is essentially a Republican Party victory.

“You’ve got two Republicans running in that race. My upside is that one of them will likely win,” Steele said. “We want to be supporting the one that wins.”

    I fear that Obama’s indecisiveness concerning sending those requested troops to Afghanistan could lead to very bad situation for our troops.

    I am feeling a good deal of concern for our brave men and women there and believe the Taliban has been emboldened by this Whimp of a President’s lack of action to protect our troops.

    I fear a major attack against our troops is in the making because of this.

    SH I saw 20 sec of the second video. I know it is true. Obama and those with him are cold and calculating. It’s almost common acceptance now to people with historical and psychological perspective that Obama is not just a common “narcissist”, that he is in fact, a sociopath, and what is classified as a Malignant Narcissist. This is what Jim Jones of Jonestown was. His course was not much different than Obama’s. (Social Justice & change is what he sold his believers and what they got was a police state/dictatorship then death.

    Hitler was a MN as well.

    I want to say that my iPod would freeze kind of like dial up, is why I can’t watch clips.

    I want to say before I head out… How many heard the press in the campaign or after the election, remember them running the talking point that “to be a president you have to be a narcissist”

    This was and is categorically false. I believe the mass media was programming us to accept Obama as he is because it is Obvious he us a narcissist. They went with and reverberated that storyline both to protect him and to condition us to their intended reaction.

    This is what the media does, and never forget the power elites that “run” the storyline… They are in the WH, they are the uber wealthy corporates and most are enemies of freedom (America).

    Gov’t Health Plan Would Cover Few
    Only Estimated 2 Percent Would Sign Up For Coverage
    RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR, Associated Press Writer

    WASHINGTON — What’s all the fuss about?

    After all the noise over Democrats’ push for a government insurance plan to compete with private carriers, coverage numbers are finally in:

    Two percent.

    That’s the estimated share of Americans younger than 65 who’d sign up for the public option plan under the health care bill that Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is steering toward House approval.

    The underwhelming statistic is raising questions about whether the government plan will be the iron-fisted competitor that private insurers warn will shut them down or a niche operator that becomes a haven for patients with health insurance horror stories.

    Some experts are wondering if lawmakers have wasted too much time arguing about the public plan, giving short shrift to basics such as ensuring that new coverage will be affordable.

    “The public option is a significant issue, but its place in the debate is completely out of proportion to its actual importance to consumers,” said Drew Altman, president of the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. “It has sucked all the oxygen out of the room and diverted attention from bread-and-butter consumer issues, such as affordable coverage and comprehensive benefits.”

    The Democratic health care bills would extend coverage to the uninsured by providing government help with premiums and prohibiting insurers from excluding people in poor health or charging them more. But to keep from piling more on the federal deficit, most of the uninsured will have to wait until 2013 for help. Even then, many will have to pay a significant share of their own health care costs.

    The latest look at the public option comes from the Congressional Budget Office, the nonpartisan economic analysts for lawmakers.

    It found that the scaled back government plan in the House bill wouldn’t overtake private health insurance. To the contrary, it might help the insurers a little.

    The budget office estimated that about 6 million people would sign up for the public option in 2019, when the House bill is fully phased in. That represents about 2 percent of a total of 282 million Americans under age 65. (Older people are covered through Medicare.)

    The overwhelming majority of the population would remain in private health insurance plans sponsored by employers. Others, mainly low-income people, would be covered through an expanded Medicaid program.

    To be fair, most people would not have access to the new public plan. Under the House bill, it would be offered through new insurance exchanges open only to those who buy coverage on their own or work for small companies. Yet even within that pool of 30 million people, only 1-in-5 would take the public option.

    Who’s likely to sign up?

    The budget office said “a less healthy pool of enrollees” would probably be attracted to the public option, drawn by the prospect of looser rules on access to specialists and medical services.

    As a result, premiums in the public plan would be higher than the average for private plans. That could nudge healthy middle-class workers and their families to sign up for private plans.

    “The concern was that the public option would destabilize the bulk of private insurance, but in fact what Congress has fashioned is very targeted,” said economist Karen Davis, president of the Commonwealth Fund. “It’s not going to be taking away the insurance industry’s core business.”

    It’s unclear whether there are enough votes in the Senate for a public plan. The version that Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has offered would let states opt out, probably leaving a smaller plan than the House would want.

    Insurers aren’t buying the budget office analysis. Asked if it might soften that opposition, industry spokesman Robert Zirkelbach of America’s Health Insurance Plans responded with a curt “No.”

    While a government plan might start out modestly, insurers fear that Congress could change the rules later, opening it up to all people and setting take-it-or-leave payments for hospitals and medical providers, instead of negotiating, as the House bill calls for.

    For the same reason, employer groups also remain wary. Big companies don’t want to lose control of their health care budgets and instead have the government send them a tax bill.

    “That cost is going to come back to you one way or another … and it’s coming back in the way of taxes and liabilities,” said Eastman Kodak’s chief executive, Antonio M. Perez, speaking for the Business Roundtable. “We just don’t believe that there are miracles out there.”

    If Congress passes a public plan that’s not much of a sensation, Democrats might have reason to regret all the time and energy they invested in it.

    Creedence Clearwater Revival – Born on the Bayou

    Now, when I was just a little boy,
    Standin’ to my Daddy’s knee,
    My poppa said, “Son, don’t let the man get you
    Do what he done to me.”
    ‘Cause he’ll get you,
    ‘Cause he’ll get you now, now.

    And I can remember the fourth of July,
    Runnin’ through the backwood, bare.
    And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin’,
    Chasin’ down a hoodoo there.
    Chasin’ down a hoodoo there.

    Born On The Bayou;
    Born On The Bayou;
    Born On The Bayou.

    Wish I was back on the Bayou.
    Rollin’ with some Cajun Queen.
    Wishin’ I were a fast freight train,
    Just a chooglin’ on down to New Orleans.


    Do it, do it, do it, do it. Oh, Lord.
    Oh get back boy.

    I can remember the fourth of July,
    Runnin’ through the backwood bare.
    And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin’,
    Chasin’ down a hoodoo there.
    Chasin’ down a hoodoo there.


    All right! Do, do, do, do.
    Mmmmmmm, on!

    A hoodoo is a ghost.

    I suspect the Radical Communist dominance in the DEM Party will result in the party being relegated to last place in the coming elections.

    The GOP will reconcile with Reagan Conservatives… this is not about evangelicals… its about survival.

    You go ahead and toot your toots… while we Reagan Conservatives teach both the GOP and the Communist Party (which has taken over the DEM Party) who is really boss of this country…. meaning the Majority of American Voters.

    And if Christie maintains his lead in NJ?
    It will be a three for three shutdown of Obamaist Communism, Chicago Style.

    It must suck to be a DEM these days but it will get worse, I promise you.

    If you want to comment further on my blog… comment on the newest blogpost which at the moment is…
