DEM Party: OMG! Cancel campaign ad slots! their panic? nearing total

Pride goeth before the fall as the Democrat Party cancels a slew of TV ADs in the last weeks before the mid-term elections for a number of Democrat candidates running for congress. Reason being? Cut those Democrats adrift to save money for a smaller candidate group to try to save something.

According to one Democrat candidate, Roy Herron, who is running for Tennessee’s 8th congressional district seat, the DCCC ad funding litmus test is whether Herron is extreme enough to support Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House in the next congress.

Roy Herron said he denies his support for Nancy the Swamp Monster, as if to say he is not all that extreme yet attacks his opponent,  Stephen Fincher(R), who says, in so many words, he will not play patty-fingers with Congressional Socialist Extremists.

Not sure I believe Herron seeing Roy Herron’s attacks on his opponent for vowing, in so many words, not to be a RINO if elected.

Seems Roy Herron wants to paint himself as the Anti-Democrat Democrat, yet fault-finds with his GOP opponent for not intending to bend to Democrat Partisan-Socialist agendas.

Gee… why can’t democrats just stand up and be democrats since that is what they are?

Answer: because We the People have had it with Democrat mismanagement of the country since 2006. Now the Democrats are not so proud of their record.

    Good Afternoon Everyone!

    Biden, Obama’s Traveling Salesman, Makes Hard Sell to Voters

    He’s flown 330,000 miles since taking office, the equivalent of circling the globe 13 times, much of it campaigning for Democrats and telling anxious voters that the $814 billion stimulus measure is working. Vice President Joe Biden knows it’s a hard sell.

    “Less bad is never good enough,” Biden said in an interview on board Air Force Two on Oct. 8, the same day that Labor Department figures showed the jobless rate held steady at 9.6 percent in September, the last yardstick before voters in the Nov. 2 elections determine which party controls Congress.

    “Voters want to be told the truth,” Biden said on the way to Madison, Wisconsin, jacketless, kneeling against the back of an airplane seat and holding gold-trimmed aviator sunglasses. “They want to know, ‘Tell me, man, do I have a shot?’” he said, his enthusiasm undeterred by a cold.

    With unemployment topping 9.5 percent for 14 straight months, Biden is having difficulty trumpeting the 3.3 million jobs created or saved by the White House’s economic stimulus.

    “It’s just really hard to convince people that when there weren’t, up until the first of the year, when there weren’t net new jobs it’s awful hard to say, ‘It’s working,’” he said at the end of a three-state campaign swing Oct. 7-8 for four Democratic candidates in Wisconsin, Missouri, and Washington. “It’s counterintuitive.”

    Middle-Class Emissary

    As President Barack Obama’s emissary to middle-class voters, Biden has visited 27 cities in 17 states, stumping for 24 Democratic candidates in just the last month.

    Eleven of those stops were in middle-income areas of Pennsylvania and Ohio, where Obama was defeated in the 2008 primaries and Biden’s middle-class roots — he grew up in Scranton, Pennsylvania — may be an asset.

    When Biden meets people in a crowd he cups their faces, pinches their cheeks, and eagerly poses for pictures. At a recent rally he teased one woman: “Can I have my picture taken with you?”

    “He’s certainly got much more of a common touch than Obama does, there’s no question about that,” said Ross Baker, a political science professor at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

    Still Biden, 67, has “a colossal selling job” to do, saidBaker. “You’re talking about mass merchandising at a time when the value of the product is uncertain.”

    Childhood Memories

    Biden draws on his own childhood, the son of a car salesman who was laid off, to tell voters he feels their pain.

    “I am angry, I am angry because I see what happened to middle-class people,” Biden said at a fundraising dinner for Senate candidate Robin Carnahan in Springfield, Missouri.

    “People like my parents, like my family, people I know, people I grew up with, who have just been battered by the greed, battered by the indifference,” he said, his voice reaching a crescendo.

    Carnahan is running against Republican Representative Roy Blunt for Senator Kit Bond’s Senate seat. The contest is on the non-partisan Cook Political Report’s list of the 11 most competitive U.S. Senate races.

    Biden sent Obama a 25-page report released Oct. 1 that said the stimulus has created or preserved 3.3 million jobs and is on pace to create the intended 3.5 million jobs. The money was obligated quickly and with little fraud, the report said.

    Voter Skepticism

    In an Oct. 7-10 Bloomberg National Poll, 52 percent of likely voters said the stimulus package for state and local governments would weaken the economy or make no difference, compared with 44 percent who said it would make the economy stronger. Sixty percent said they disapprove of Obama’s handling of the budget deficit, which ballooned in part because of the stimulus. And 53 percent said they disapproved of Obama’s record of job creation. The poll of 721 likely voters has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points.

    “People aren’t blaming Obama for the fact there’s a recession; they’re blaming him for the fact that it’s going on so long,” said James Bennett, 39, an information technology worker in Tacoma, Washington.

    Republicans, who need a net gain of 39 seats to gain a majority in the 435-member House and a 10-seat pickup to take over the Senate, are seizing on the administration’s communication challenge.

    In Washington state, Republican challenger Dino Rossi is running television advertisements accusing Senator Patty Murray of being “in the other Washington” while “we face lost jobs, lost savings and falling home prices.”

    “She says she works for Washington, the question is which one?” the ad says.

    On a rainy day in Tacoma, Biden told a crowd of about 1,000 people at an outdoor rally for Murray that he welcomes the fight.

    Boxer’s Jab

    “These rich guys always underestimate us, that’s one thing that I kind of like about it, that’s one of the parts of my job I’ve enjoyed over the years, a little straight left and a right hook, it works,” Biden said, imitating a boxer’s jabs, wearing a purple raincoat and baseball cap with the University of Washington insignia. Later on as the sun broke through he took off his jacket and rolled up his shirtsleeves.

    Republicans say the stimulus didn’t live up to Obama’s billing.

    “The massive growth of the federal government didn’t result in a similar growth of jobs,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement released Oct. 8.

    Rebuts Republicans

    Biden, in the interview, called Republican criticism “phony” and said the Labor Department report “shows how wrong they were” in limiting assistance for states. He said more jobs would have been created if Republicans had approved an additional $150 billion originally in the stimulus and the creation of an infrastructure bank.

    Democrats aren’t running on the administration’s accomplishments like health-care and financial-regulatory overhaul and the stimulus because “it’s just too hard to explain,” Biden said. “It sort of a branding, I mean you know they kind of want the branding more at the front end.”

    In contrast to Obama’s style, Biden speaks to voters like they are his neighbors and often has been accused of speaking too honestly and too much.

    “You’re the dullest audience I’ve ever spoken to,” Biden chided 340 people paying more attention to their scrambled eggs and bacon than to him at an Oct. 7 fundraiser for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Barrett in Madison, Wisconsin.

    “It’s the message itself, not the messenger,” said Baker. “It’s certainly not the strength of his persuasive powers but rather the receptivity of people.”

    Good afternoon Tellit!

    Looks like Soros got out of the way…

    I wonder how many Dems are going to wipeout?

  3. Orca says:

    At this time it reminds me of that moment just before the executioner pulls the lever to send the blade swishing down on the neck of the soon to be dead meat. The soon to be dead meat is screaming how if given another chance he would do right, and how he really did not mean to do what he did.
    Swish and then twack and bump……… next

  4. Foxwood says:

    That’s when you hold the head up and say, “yeah right.”

    Across US, Long Recovery Looks Like a Recession

    This is not what a recovery is supposed to look like.

    CNBC.com

    In Atlanta, the Bank of America [BAC 13.3104 -0.2096 (-1.55%) ] tower, the tallest in the Southeast, is nearly a fifth vacant, and bank officials just wrestled a rent cut from the developer. In Cherry Hill, N.J., 10 percent of the houses on the market are so-called short sales, in which sellers ask for less than they owe lenders. And in Arizona, in sun-blasted desert subdivisions, owners speak of hours cut, jobs lost and meals at soup kitchens.

    Less than a month before November elections, the United States is mired in a grim New Normal that could last for years. That has policy makers, particularly the Federal Reserve, considering a range of ever more extreme measures, as noted in the minutes of its last meeting, released Tuesday. Call it recession or recovery, for tens of millions of Americans, there’s little difference.

    Born of a record financial collapse, this recession has been more severe than any since the Great Depression and has left an enormous oversupply of houses and office buildings and crippling debt. The decision last week by leading mortgage lenders to freeze foreclosures, and calls for a national moratorium, could cast a long shadow of uncertainty over banks and the housing market. Put simply, the national economy has fallen so far that it could take years to climb back.

    The math yields somber conclusions, with implications not just for this autumn’s elections but also — barring a policy surprise or economic upturn — for 2012 as well:

    * At the current rate of job creation, the nation would need nine more years to recapture the jobs lost during the recession. And that doesn’t even account for five million or six million jobs needed in that time to keep pace with an expanding population. Even top Obama officials concede the unemployment rate could climb higher still.
    * Median house prices have dropped 20 percent since 2005. Given an inflation rate of about 2 percent — a common forecast — it would take 13 years for housing prices to climb back to their peak, according to Allen L. Sinai, chief global economist at the consulting firm Decision Economics.
    * Commercial vacancies are soaring, and it could take a decade to absorb the excess in many of the largest cities. The vacancy rate, as of the end of June, stands at 21.4 percent in Phoenix, 19.7 percent in Las Vegas, 18.3 in Dallas/Fort Worth and 17.3 percent in Atlanta, in each case higher than last year, according to the data firm CoStar Group.

    Demand is inert. Consumer confidence has tumbled as many are afraid or unable to spend. Families are still paying off — or walking away from — debt. Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody’s Analytics, estimates it will be the end of 2011 before the amount of income that households pay in interest recedes to levels seen before the run-up. Credit card delinquencies are rising.

    “No wonder Americans are pessimistic and unhappy,” said Mr. Sinai. “The only way we are going to get in gear is to face up to the reality that we are entering a period of austerity.”

    This dreary accounting should not suggest a nation without strengths. Unemployment rates have come down from their peaks in swaths of the United States, from Vermont to Minnesota to Wisconsin. Port traffic has increased, and employers have created an average of 68,111 jobs a month this year.

    After plummeting in 2009, the stock market has spiraled up, buoying retirement accounts and perhaps the spirits of middle-class Americans. As a measure of economic health, though, that gain is overstated. Robert Reich, the former labor secretary, notes that the most profitable companies in the domestic stock indexes generate about 40 percent of their revenue from abroad.

    Few doubt the American economy remains capable of electrifying growth, but few expect that any time soon. “We still have a lot of strengths, from a culture of entrepreneurship and venture capitalism, to flexible labor markets and attracting immigrants,” said Barry Eichengreen, an economist at the University of California, Berkeley. “But we’re going to be living with the overhang of our financial and debt problems for a long, long time to come.”

    New shocks could push the nation into another recession or deflation. “We are in a situation where our vulnerability to any new problem is great,” said Carmen M. Reinhart, a professor of economics at the University of Maryland.

    So troubles ripple outward, as lost jobs, unsold houses and empty offices weigh down the economy and upend lives. Struggles in Arizona, New Jersey and Georgia echo broadly.

    Florence, Ariz.

    In 2005, Arizona ranked, as usual, second nationally in job growth behind Nevada, its economy predicated on growth. The snowbirds came and construction boomed and land stretched endless and cheap. Then it stopped.

    This year, Arizona ranks 42nd in job growth. It has lost 287,000 jobs since the recession began, and the fall has been calamitous.

    Renee Wheaton, 38, sits in an old golf cart on the corner of Tangerine and Barley Roads in her subdivision in the desert, an hour south of Phoenix. Her next-door neighbor, an engineer, just lost his job. The man across the street is unemployed.

    Her family is not doing so well either. Her husband’s hours have been cut by 15 percent, leaving her family of five behind on water and credit card bills — more or less on everything except the house and car payment. She teaches art, but that’s not much in demand.
    “I say to myself ‘This can’t be happening to us: We saved, we worked hard and we’re under tremendous stress,’ ” Ms. Wheaton says. “My husband is a very hard-working man but for the first time, he’s having real trouble.”

    Arizona’s poverty rate has jumped to 19.6 percent, the second-highest in the nation after Mississippi. The Association of Arizona Food Banks says demand has nearly doubled in the last 18 months.

    Elliott D. Pollack, one of Arizona’s foremost economic forecasters, said: “You had an implosion of every sector needed to survive. That’s not going to get better fast.”

    To wander exurban Pinal County, which is where Florence is located, is to find that the unemployment rate tells just half the story. Everywhere, subdivisions sit in the desert, some half-built and some dreamy wisps, like the emerald green putting green sitting amid acres of scrub and cacti. Signs offer discounts, distress sales and rent with the first and second month free.

    Discounts do not help if your income is cut in half. Construction workers speak of stringing together 20-hour weeks with odd jobs, and a 45-year-old woman who was a real estate agent talks of her job making minimum wage bathing elderly patients. Many live close to the poverty line, without the conveniences they once took for granted. Pinal’s unemployment rate, like that of Arizona, stands at 9.7 percent, but state officials say that the real rate rises closer to 20 percent when part-timers and those who have stopped looking for work are added in.

    At an elementary school near Ms. Wheaton’s home, an expansion of the school’s water supply was under way until thieves sneaked in at night and tore the copper pipes out of the ground to sell for scrap.

    Five miles southwest, in Coolidge, a desert town within view of the distant Superstition Mountains, demand has tripled at Tom Hunt’s food pantry. Some days he runs out.

    Henry Alejandrez, 60, is a roofer who migrated from Texas looking for work. “It’s gotten real bad,” he says. “I’m a citizen, and you’re lucky if you get minimum wage.”

    Mary Sepeda, his sister, nods. She used to drive two hours to clean newly constructed homes before they were sold. That job evaporated with the housing market. (Arizona issued 62,500 housing permits several years ago; it gave out 8,400 last year.)

    “It’s getting crazy,” she says, holding up a white plastic bag of pantry food. “How does this end?”

    You put that question to Mr. Pollack, the forecaster. “We won’t recover until we absorb 80,000 empty houses and office buildings and people can borrow again,” he says.

    When will that be?

    “I’m forecasting recovery by 2013 to 2015,” he says.
