BN-EJ575_ep0904_D_20140903193226The post-Labor Day election campaign is underway, and the early conventional wisdom is that Republican hopes of a 2010-style wave are fading. GOP gains in the House could only be a few seats and the six pickups to take the Senate are still uncertain. This is coming from the usual liberal suspects, but it is also whispered by GOP strategists. Maybe Republicans should try to improve their odds by telling voters what they would do if they win.

By any typical political measure, this ought to be a great Republican year. President Obama is widely unpopular, the Senate playing field is largely in conservative states, the tide of war is rising around the world, and gains in stocks and other asset prices haven’t translated into higher wages for most Americans. Many Republicans look at this and think they can win merely by running to be a check on Mr. Obama.

SchauerFor the second time this year, the Mark Schauer/Lisa Brown campaign is caught in a PR firestorm from a complaint alleging the campaign of breaking Michigan campaign finance law by making illegal contributions to Lisa Brown.

According to the complaint, Schauer illegally contributed candidate-to-candidate contributions to Lisa Brown before she was his official lieutenant governor nominee.

In a bold attempt to help his hand-picked running mate, Schauer skirted Michigan’s law by supporting Brown’s candidacy through campaign paraphernalia (e.g. yard signs and other campaign ads).

September 2, 2014 Wow. That was some summer. The Islamic State that President Obama dismissed as “JV” proved to be a virulent varsity—gobbling up gobs of the Middle East, beheading an American journalist, and threatening the United States. Russia invaded Ukraine. Ferguson burned. Obama shrugged.

“The truth of the matter is that the world has always been messy,” the president told Democratic donors between meetings of his national security team and rounds of golf. “In part, we’re just noticing now because of social media and our capacity to see in intimate detail the hardships that people are going through.”

Congressman Gary Peters will say absolutely anything to get elected, including investing tens of thousands of dollars in petcoke and then saying he is against it in order to get millions of dollars in dark money contributions from the radical California billionaire, Tom Steyer. Whether it’s supporting cap-and-trade which could kill over 100,000 Michigan jobs and cause gas and utility prices to skyrocket or opposing the Keystone XL which would create jobs in Michigan, Gary Peters is on the wrong side of every issue — unless it pads his pocket. http://bit.ly/1Cnp1IK

bilde (1)A Republican governor hunting for votes in Detroit might as well wear a blindfold. The city is so loyally Democratic that 60 percent of voters just walk into the booth, yank the donkey’s tail and walk out.

But there was Rick Snyder Thursday, on Jefferson Ave., opening a campaign office in a city that gave him less than 6 percent of its ballots in 2010. Why bother?

“Because they’re citizens of Michigan,” the governor says. “I campaigned in Detroit in the Republican primary in 2009, even though a lot of people told me I was crazy.”
