WELL, THINGS KEEP FALLING IN AMERICA, like the economy and the polls for the President and for Democrats. New CBS poll released yesterday is just full of bad news. The economy is rated bad by 82%, up from 77% in June. Over half of Americans ( 51% )think it will be bad for more than the next two years, and 24% for the next two years. When asked which is the better way to create jobs and get the economy moving again, 53% say cutting taxes, 37% say increased government spending. When it comes to the Arizona immigration law, 74% say it’s just right or not harsh enough. The President’s approval ratings are underwater on the economy and health care, as they also are in the latest Pew and Washington Post/ABC polls.
WHITE HOUSE SPOKESMAN ROBERT GIBBS said on Sunday that the Democrats could lose the House and that has Nancy and the House leadership all tangled up in knots. Politico reports there was a rather tense meeting yesterday between them and White House staff over the comments. Gibbs has tried to modify his comments, but, he said it.
MEANWHILE, TODAY, RETAIL SALES were reported to have fallen in June by .5%. Where is the recovery summer we were promised? The only thing recovering this summer is the likelihood of big Republican gains in November. This is their race to lose, the Democrats and the President can do little if anything to impact the outcome. We are in a downward economic spiral and the policies of the Obama administration and the Democrats will not lead to recovery. Remember the number sixty ( 60 ) on election night and that you heard it here first.
MOLLY NORRIS, THE LOCAL CARTOONIST who called for a “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day”, then retreated after a number of death threats from open-minded and tolerant lunatic Muslim extremists, has had a leading Muslim cleric formally call for her death. I hope we hear from some moderate Muslims condemning this action. I’m listening…
ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 5th, I WILL be mcing a fundraising dinner for the Vitae Caring Foundation here in Seattle with Colonel Oliver North as the keynote speaker. Vitae places pro-life advertising hoping to win hearts and minds on the life issue. They do great work, and I hope you can attend. Tickets are $100.00, $50.00 of which is tax deductible. They are looking for table captains, to fill a table of ten, and if you do, you will be invited with a friend, to a private reception with Ollie and get your picture taken with him. This is a great cause and I hope you will come to the dinner. If you want information on tickets or being a table captain, call Katie Corl, 206-777-5251.
Lastly, if you are still looking for a way to get involved and contribute to a victory in November, join Americans for Prosperity ( www.americansforprosperity.org ). I am the state director and we have a great November is Coming campaign which will help elect the right kind of people in November but it can’t work without you all. You can join right on the website, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will plug you right in. Friends, the time for sitting around complaining is over. We have less than four months to make sure we win big in November. All the ingredients are there for a BIG conservative victory, but it won’t happen spontaneously. Your country, your kids and grandkids, need you. You can wake up on November third to the news that we failed to take Congress and win a lot of races, or you can say YES WE DID! It’s your choice. I’ve made mine. What about you?
