US Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the Fight for his PoliticalLife

Senator Harry Reid I have good news and bad news. First the good news its August 2009 not August 2010. The Bad News Its August 2009  and the two Republican challengers are beating you.  According the poll by the Las Vegas Review-Journal Republican Danny Tarkanian  is ahead of Reid 49 to 38%.

The senator would be in trouble against  Sue Lowden too. Lowden up against Reid 45-40%.

This does not bode well Reid. For his 45 years in politics and 28 years in Washington in Both the House of Representative and Senate; Reid brought money, projects and jobs to Nevada.

The big draw back Reid represents a Democratic party who now following out of favor since the spending spree (stimulus, omnibus spending bill,  bailout of banks[TARP]; bailout of Car Companies[Chrysler, and General Motors];bailout of insurance company American International Group{AIG} bailout of Semi-autonomous quasi-governmental firm Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.  And don’t forget Cap and Trade[Enegry Tax,]Health Insurance[Care] Refrom.

And when Obama numbers fall it tends to pull other Democrats down. Winning“becomes more difficult when you are actually the one having to carry the water for the president,” said Richard Davis, apolitical science professor at Brigham Young University, Provo,UT. “He (Reid) has got to get something out of the Obama administration that he can claim as his own.”

But Reid Spokesman Jon Summers said, “He fights for Nevada on those issues and others every day and he’ll continue that battle to get our economy back on track.” Reid will remind the vote of the thing that Obama Adminstration is doing to improve the economy.

“Senator Reid’s leadership for Nevada has earned him broad support, including from nearly 150 Republican leaders in Nevada who recognize that he is a powerful voice for Nevada,” Summers said.

That doesn’t phase Sue Lowden spokesman Robert Uithoven. Despite Reid bring back the bacon to Nevada people are dissatisfied with Washington D.C.

“A lot of what drives support toward Senator Reid is fear in this state. And I don’t think fear is a good motivation for voters,” Uithoven said.

Obama Poll Numbers Continue Free Fall

President Obama job approval continue to fall. Rasmussen Reports shows only 27% strongly approval  of his job performance.  41% of those surveyed strongly disprove of his job performance.   Which says Obama’s job approval is a -14 points. These are the lowest of his very young administration.

The President before  today the presidential approval has never fallen below 29%. Whats worse now only 49% of Democrats approve what Obama is doing. Is this an omen of things to come? Meanwhile, 70% of Republicans disapprove of what the President is doing.

NY Governor Plays Race Card Blames “White Media” for woes

New York Governor David Patterson lashes out at media blaming them for his woes and accuses the of pushing him out 2010 Governor’s Race.

“The whole idea is to get me not to run in the primary,” Paterson told New York Daily News report and radio talk show host Errol Lewis. Patterson says Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and President Barack Obama are also coming under fire because they are black.

“We’re not in the post-racial period,” Paterson said.

“The reality is the next victim on the list – and you can see it coming – is President Barack Obama, who did nothing more than trying to reform a health care system.”

Reaction from blacks political leaders are mixed.

“He’s given the media more than enough to feed on with the incompetence shown in his administration,” said state Senator Ken Parker(D-Brooklyn)who is black.

“To quote Michael Jackson, he should start with the man in the mirror,” Parker said.

Patterson’s poll numbers are very low. The absolute lowest was 18%  but it has risen to 30%  and Pollsters say Patterson could loose a match up between him and  Attorney Genera Andrew Cuomo.
Later Governor Patterson played of his earlier comments, by saying

“At no point did I claim that this media piling-on effect was due to race.”

“What I did point out was that certain media outlets have engaged in coverage that exploits racial stereotypes,” he said.

Look incompetence is no excuse to cry racism.  Governor Patterson you sir have poor leadership skills. There is true racism,this isn’t it. Governor Patterson, you have trivialized the word. Black politicians today throw down the race card if things don’t go his or her way. If  the media, District Attorney or Attorney General investigate and again play the race card.

The problem is these people couldn’t handle the pressure of the post; or they  are head deep in corruption. It’s safer to run  in all black(or Hispanic for that matter) election districts where the is little opposition. If there is opposition the opponent doesn’t have the financial wherewithal to win.

Mean while,The State Legislature in Albany, is a disgrace. The people of New York need a constitutional Amendment move the legislature like what us happening in California. A group Citizens for California Reform to moving  state assembly and state senate from full to part time status. Since they are unresponsive to the people. I suggest that the Voters of New York state do the same for the your state.
