A few random thoughts…

  • GOP leadership better jump all over Obama’s FedEx/US Postal Service comment through the rest of this Health Care reform debate. It not only highlights exactly why we shouldn’t enact his plan in an easy to understand way, but it also highlights the President’s inability to live without TOTUS. If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, check this out:
  • Creigh Deeds has gone insanely desperate in his fight to stay in the VA Guv race. His latest forays into painting McDonnell as a social extremist don’t hit the frontrunner where it can do much damage. Deeds needs to focus on elaborating why he would be the better Governor. Election Day is three months out. People need details.
  • Campaigns are won by winning more days than your opponent. New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine definitely lost today when he tweeted that his financial experience prevented his state’s economic downturn. Obviously, that makes zero sense whatsoever when you look at the situation New Jersey is in; a budget out of control, massive job loss, and broken promises. Hmmm….sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
  • I’ve been thoroughly impressed with the McDonnell campaign’s grassroots and fundraising efforts. Throughout the week I’m getting updates via twitter, facebook and e-mail about opportunities to get involved. With this kind of activity I think Deeds will be hard pressed to win the Virginia ground game.
  • Charles Krauthammer is brilliant at policy analysis. He’s awful when it comes to political analysis.
  • After yesterday, I’m really glad the President has two more Health Care town halls.
  • I’m anxiously awaiting Ohio’s unemployment numbers coming out next week. Gonna be interesting to see if the rate follows the national trend.
  • I’m really glad Arlen Specter isn’t our problem anymore.
  • After watching OSU’s first practice last night at 10:00pm, I’ve concluded that the Big Ten Network is awesome.
  • Anyone else noticed PPP(D)’s surge of “birther” polls? Clearly, they’re trying to paint the opposition as extreme. But based on Rasmussen’s latest poll, when it comes to Health Care Reform, that doesn’t seem to be working.
  • Speaking of Rasmussen, his latest numbers imply some serious issues for Deeds. Not only has McDonnell strengthened his lead to nine in Virginia, but he’s winning the leaners, those who initially indicate no preference, by a 49-41 margin.
  • For blackberry uses, Tiny Twitter is far superior to Tweetberry.
  • Finally, a special thanks to my surge of guest contributors as of late. You’ve all brought a fresh and thoughtful perspective to 3BP and it’s appreciated.
