Unions Try to Prop Up Democrats

Obama and the Democrat majority have spent a great deal of time complaining about various business backed groups, accusing them of interfering in campaigns across the country. While they continue to whine about others, Democrats are relying increasingly more and more on another outside group to help them survive: organized labor.

In a recent memo, the political director of the AFL-CIO claims that any surprise Democratic wins on November 2nd will be the result of their unprecedented efforts over the last few weeks. “Outside the political party committees themselves, we have the largest political mobilization operation in the country,” says Karen Ackerman in a memo obtained by the NY Times.
The final result of the unions efforts to mobilize will not be known until November 3rd, however the large majority of polls continue to show little enthusiasm among Democrat voters compared with Republican and Independent voters. Many of the competitive races are in areas where union membership is low.

Unfortunately union leadership can not comprehend that the results of the Nov. 2nd election will have everything to do with the economy that continues to stagnate under  the Democrats insistence on overreaching. The large majority of legislation the Democrats have railroaded through over the last 2 years has failed miserably, and has either made the economy worse or extended this unprecedented recession. The voting public is now begining to recognize that.  

If you reject policies effecting your business dictated to the Majority by Organized Labor, make sure you get out and vote, encourage your peers, employees, friends, and family members, all get out and vote on November 2nd.

A talking point that we have continued to see and hear is that the Republicans are the party of NO. we concede that they are however their talking point convenielty leave out the last half of that statement. Republicans are the party of No, "No to Bad Legisalation".

House Battle May Simply Be A Referendum on 'Toxic' Nancy?

Could the unpopular speaker be the key to Republicans taking control of the House? The GOP hopes to bank on a growing list of moderate House Democrats who say they wouldn't support Pelosi for speaker again.

Pelosi is a "toxic asset." Which perhaps explains why a growing list of moderate House Democrats say they wouldn't support Pelosi for speaker again.

"Nancy Pelosi has near universal name ID and high unfavorable ratings in every competitive race across the country," said NRCC spokesman Ken Spain. "She is the face associated with these unpopular policies."

But Democrats argue that the GOP is targeting the California Democrat for other reasons.
"Republicans and their special interest allies have attacked Speaker Pelosi with an unprecedented level of money for one reason - she's effective," said Jennifer Crider, Deputy Executive Director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).
