Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity


No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Ohio Voters Long For Bush

In a new poll, voters in Ohio would prefer to have George Bush in the White House.  Public Policy Polling, a staunch liberal polling organization just posted this: 
We'll start rolling out our Ohio poll results tomorrow but there's one finding on the poll that pretty much sums it up: by a 50-42 margin voters there say they'd rather have George W. Bush in the White House right now than Barack Obama.

Independents hold that view by a 44-37 margin and there are more Democrats who would take Bush back (11%) than there are Republicans who think Obama's preferable (3%.)

A couple months ago I thought the Pennsylvanias and Missouris and Ohios of the world were the biggest battlegrounds for 2010 but when you see numbers like this it makes you think it's probably actually the Californias and the Wisconsins and the Washingtons.

There's not much doubt things are getting worse for Democrats...and they were already pretty bad. Somehow the party base needs to get reinvigorated over the next two months or there's going to be a very, very steep price to pay.
 All emphasis is mine...I'm holding to my prediction of 100 seats lost by the Democrats in November.   I also think that the GOP will pick up at least 10 seats in the Senate, perhaps 13...if Feingold in WI is in trouble, as well as the Dem's hold on the WA seat is now tenuous...then  it's more than possible that they will lose control of the Senate as well.

My biggest concern, however, is that the GOP leadership will FUBAR it all.  That's not out of the question.  Especially when you consider how little confidence the rank and file membership has in the party leadership now.  The Tea Party, frankly, is the future of the GOP now.  They are holding to those precepts that stood in good stead for more than a century.  If we can get enough people elected who will hold to them...then we have a chance to roll back the "big government" bull shit that has been put  in place over the past 60 years.
