A Disappointment of Representation

Can’t say I am thrilled about Rep. Steny Hoyer winning re-election.
Now, even moreso after reading this –

Hoyer: Opponents’ Tactics ‘Poisonous to Our Future’

Video at the link.

At least he’s up for re-election again in two years …….

FEC’s Rules Violated

SEIU allowed to violate the law.

Federal Election Commission expressly forbids organizations from fining members for not contributing to political action committees (PACs). The Obama administration is not only sold out to unions, but will break the law while aiding them.

And where is Congress on all this? Senate, how about you? House?

Beuller? Beuller?

Come on, November……..

Pot Meet Kettle

Doggoned if I can tell which is which.

Apparently, Speaker Pelosi didn’t like what WH Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said recently.

Too funny.

How To Get Media Covering Your Campaign

UPDATEx1: Well, wonder boy just threw his entire staff under the subway.

Is that all? Well, the article leads by saying those three are all Republicans. While I can’t say that lends credence to the gist of the article completely, it does tell me that the folks deciding to leave probably feel they want to get out on their own decision rather than losing at the ballot box. From an earlier read I had (Dick Morris, if I am not mistaken) the point was made that losing at the ballot box meant such a person would not likely be able to be called upon as a paid consultant/lobbyist. Hhhmm. Maybe.

A trio of House Republican retirement announcements over the past 10 days have sparked a debate between the leaders of the two major parties over whether the GOP is losing momentum in its quest to score major gains at the ballot box this fall.

UPDATE: There is another article concerning House retirements, but this one includes a list of upcoming districts (by state) of various concerns. Maybe not quite up to date, but close.
