The TexasFred Blog – Political Roundup for Sept. 1, 2010

ANCHORAGE — Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska conceded late Tuesday in her Republican primary race against Joe Miller, a lawyer from Fairbanks who was backed by Tea Party activists, Sarah Palin and other conservatives.

Mr. Miller shocked the political establishment here and in Washington last week when he emerged with a narrow lead, 1,668 votes, after the primary vote, on Aug. 24. His victory makes him the presumed favorite to win the Senate seat from this heavily Republican state.

Mr. Miller, who has proposed drastic cuts in federal spending, had trailed badly in local polls in the weeks before the election but benefited from a last-minute flood of advertisements, mailings and automated calls casting Ms. Murkowski as a Democrat in disguise. An abortion-related ballot measure also brought conservatives to the polls.

Murkowski Concedes Senate Race in Alaska

Congratulations to Joe Miller on his win over Lisa Murkowski. I hope you win the Alaska Senate seat and can keep Alaska on a Conservative track.

I also hope that you aren’t like some of the other so-called Conservatives touted by Sarah Palin, John McCain (R)INO being foremost in my mind. And lets not forget the fact that she supported Scott Brown (R)INO too, and is now feuding with him. SOURCE

WEST ALLIS, Wis. — Senator Russ Feingold says he should not be considered the front-runner in his bid for a fourth term. If that self-appraisal is true, Democrats face a greater risk of losing their majority in the Senate than they believed when summer began.

“Frankly, I love being the underdog,? Mr. Feingold said. “Let me have it.?

As the senator talks to voters across Wisconsin, that description is perhaps an exaggeration for an incumbent with a national reputation, but it has become a central part of his pitch. He is not eager to concede that control of the Senate could hinge on his seat — though it very well could — but he hopes the warning cry will prompt his loyal Democratic followers to rally to his side in a challenging election year.

In Wisconsin, an Incumbent Holds Tight

There’s only one way to say this, and quite likely I WILL anger someone in Wisconsin by saying it, BUT, if you folks re-elect Russ Feingold, SHAME ON YOU! You’re no better than Feingold’s ally in Arizona, John McCain (R)INO and the people that keep send him back year after year!

Remember this Wisconsin, you get the government you elect. You would think that Wisconsin would take a lesson from a certain bimbo named Peggy West and the disgusting debacle looking for a place to happen that SHE is! SOURCE

CHICAGO — Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty directed state agencies on Tuesday to decline all discretionary participation in federal healthcare reform, throwing up roadblocks to President Barack Obama’s goal of providing health insurance to all Americans.

“Obamacare is an intrusion by the federal government into personal health care matters and it’s an explosion of federal spending that does nothing to make healthcare more affordable,” the Republican governor said in a statement.

Since Obama signed the landmark reforms into law in March nearly half of the states have mounted a fight against it.

Pawlenty directs state to decline health reform

The more I hear about Tim Pawlenty, the more I am liking this guy. Pawlenty may not be the one the RNC chooses in 2012, they do seem to have a way of picking the most unelectable ticket of late, but I am seriously starting to think that Pawlenty really has a lot going on for him and may well be a great choice for America!

Carl P. Paladino, nearly an hour and a half late, rushed into a chandeliered room in the Bronx the other day to tell Hispanic religious leaders why they should elect him governor. The scrambled eggs had turned cold, and so had the room.

“Hipócrita,? one minister whispered. Another passed around newspaper articles with the words “bigot? and “anti-immigrant? underlined.

Arizona boycott backed by Milwaukee County Board panel

Arizona boycott backed by Milwaukee County Board panel

Milwaukee County would boycott doing business with firms in Arizona to protest that state’s tough immigration law, under a measure endorsed Thursday by a County Board panel.

The county would avoid new contracts with Arizona firms or the state of Arizona and possibly discontinue any current contracts with firms in that state, under a resolution unanimously approved by the board’s finance committee. It also would bar county employees from travel to conferences in Arizona.

The aim would be to punish the state for the immigration law Arizona enacted last month that makes it a crime for immigrants to fail to carry immigration documents and gives police broad power to detain a suspected illegal immigrant.

Supervisors Peggy West and Elizabeth M.Coggs called the Arizona law racist.

“It reminds me of the days of apartheid in South Africa,? said Coggs.

The resolution goes to the full County Board Thursday.

Arizona boycott backed by Milwaukee County Board panel

You know, once in a while I get some really AWESOME emails. Today was one of those days.

Mr. Chuck, one of my very loyal, and long time readers, sent me a YouTube link that proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, what we all have long known. Liberals are STUPID! Do you doubt that? See the video. The IDIOT running off at the mouth is Milwaukee County Supervisor Peggy West. The same Peggy West mentioned in the above story.

Elizabeth M. Coggs and Peggy West are a couple of very disillusioned people. For one thing, there is NOTHING racist about enforcing U.S. law or State law. Illegal is an act of being, it’s not a race.

It reminds you of the days of apartheid in South Africa Ms. Coggs? Seriously? Apartheid?

Apartheid was a RACIST exercise if ever there was one. I’m pretty sure that the Blacks in Africa aren’t there illegally though. In fact, I’m fairly certain that they were in Africa LONG before the white man. What happened to Blacks in South Africa was RACIST. Enforcing immigration law is NOT racist, it’s enforcing the law!

After some serious thought, I am going to have to say, West is not stupid, she’s a MORON. Coggs is a MORON too, a very STUPID moron.

Milwaukee should be ashamed of itself for ever letting these 2 get in a position of power. I only hope that neither one has children, the gene pool needs to be cleaned, and these MORONS are a great place to start.
