He’d have a year more experience in a high office than the incumbent did if he ran in 2012. “Axelrod won’t handicap 2012. Prompted to talk about Chris Christie, he says he ‘likes him,’ and ‘he’s a serious person.’ Axe doubts ‘he would leave a job he just began to run for president.’”
Republicans have more credibility than the Democrats on the economy: “47 percent of those questioned say the economic policies of congressional Republicans are more likely to improve economic conditions, with 41 percent saying Democrats in Congress have the better prescriptions.”
When do the Democrats decide they have spent more than enough money on Joe Sestak’s inept campaign? Two more polls have Toomey solidly ahead.
Eighty-seven senators have had more than enough of Obama’s Israel-bashing. “Eighty-seven U.S. senators have already signed on to a letter, which was initially circulated only three days ago, calling on Obama to publicly pressure Abbas to continue with the direct peace talks begun Sept. 1 in Washington.”
The Obami used to have more charm, no? “Vice President Joe Biden on Monday urged Democrats to overcome their differences and support their candidates at the polls by telling them to ‘stop whining.’”
Have we had a more partisan president? Ed Gillespie: “I’ve never seen a president of the United States on either side of the aisle engage in the kind of personal attacks [on members of Congress] the way President Obama has chosen to do. I’d tell him to focus on the issues. I think that when he goes out there and he stumps, I’m sure [the attacks have] some short-term energizing effect of core voters but it has a very energizing long-term effect for conservatives and independents and drives independents further into Republicans’ arms.”
Perhaps if politicians sent their kids to D.C. schools, they’d have more of a stake in improving them. “President Obama said Monday that his daughters could not get the same level of education from D.C. public schools that they receive at the elite private school they attend.”
