CHICAGO (WLS) - Former President Bill Clinton’s ‘get out the vote’ rally for Democrats at a downtown Chicago hotel was the most unenthusiastic WLS veteran political reporter Bill Cameron has ever witnessed.
Clinton was an hour late for the Tuesday afternoon rally at the Palmer House and droned on for another hour, sending dozens of the few hundred Democrats in attendance for the exits.

“Well, all we’re really asking for is two more years, that’s a total of four, to get us out of the hole and get us into the future. That’s half as much time as you gave them to dig the hole. Seems fair to us,” Clinton said.

The state's most popular Democrat Lisa Madigan was conspicuously absent as were state party chairman Mike Madigan and Mayor Richard Daley.

The Republicans said the Clinton visit put the Democrats failed tax and spend policies on display again.

Clinton was in Chicago Tuesday to rally Illinois Democrats behind Pat Quinn for governor and Alexi Giannoulias for President Barack Obama's old U.S. Senate seat. Both candidates are trailing in their races.

Dino Rossi

Here's a good video clip of Dino Rossi being interviewed by Sean Hannity.  I know it will be a close race, and I am glad he is ahead in the polls.  If he has reduced the deficit before without raising taxes, then he can do it again.  The November election can't get here soon enough for me.

RIGHTNETWORK | Voices | The Palin Platform

from RIGHTNETWORK | Voices | The Palin Platform

Palin in May 2010

Nobody but nobody, it seems, feels lukewarm about Palin.
That her ideas possess currency is undeniable. In fact, just now there is a burst of energy behind her ideas. Which is interesting, because her ideas are rather plain; in fact, they are wholly lacking in anything remarkable at all. They are deficient in the irony people usually crave. These are quaint, bland, “up is up and down is down” ideas. If she were to announce a run for the Presidency, it would probably be along these lines:
1. The Government should fear the citizens, not the other way around.
2. If you want the economy to be stronger, do not fight the people who produce our nation’s wealth. Help them.
3. If your plan will not get us the results we need, with all due respect I could care less how smart you are.
4. If we have seen this scheme put into action before, and have yet to see it succeed; then let us shelve it until someone makes it work.
5. Make it inexpensive to put people on a payroll, or to keep them on it. Then, maybe businesses will make cuts somewhere else during the lean times…and perhaps hire some more. We are not beating this any other way.
6. Every move we make on foreign policy should send a signal to our allies that they made the right choice defending us; or, to our enemies that they made the wrong choice and need to reverse course. Those who are undecided about us, but watching, should be motivated in a powerful way to decide in our favor.
7. Anyone who does something you might not be ready, willing or able to do yourself – regardless of what they pull down for an hour on the job before overtime – is deserving of your respect.
These are dangerous ideas. Because they just might do what they're supposed to do... and fix more problems than they create.
This is a dangerous woman. She is committed to ideas like these. Come what may, you will not see her supporting their opposites. And she can fill up a stadium, bookstore or rental hall without paying people to be there. It's a bad, bad combination... depending, that is, on who you are and what you're trying to do.

Barney Frank's Got REAL Competition!

Oh wouldn't it be nice for Barney Frank to be defeated in November?  After watching the above video clip, I am encouraged and looking forward to watching the Massachusetts November results. 

Right Network has several links relating to Sean Bielat that are interesting.  I appreciated their comment, "At last, a candidate who's got the moxie and the resume to challenge the architect of the crash..."


November is going to be quite a month!

Bobby Schilling for Congress

I am all for anyone who is wanting to remove career politicians and return our country to back to it's foundational values.  Bobby Schilling just put out his first campaign ad (above) in Illinois and isn't it so refreshing????  Especially compared to the "career politician" old and tired "slam the other party" with lies and distortions ads.  Here's looking forward to some real "change" in November!
