commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Sully after the 'Landing'……his documentary…."Brace for Impact"……

Capt. Chesley B. Sullenberger III , a hero to everyone on US Airways flight 1549…..is celebrating a year of new found life with  ‘ selling urgent airline reforms, a memoir, a television documentary, “Brace for Impact” on TLC , and a reassuring sense that there are indeed heroes among us……

He has embraced the spotlight and ran with it…in the same calm and thoughtful way in which handled that eventful day…..

It is nice to see him move on…still flying…..letting us know he’s human and selfefacing…..and lucky in the bed room after years of marriage……

The piece from the New York Times lets on that Sully and his wife aren’t dumb either…they have got the instant fame horse and are riding it aas long as they can……

No problem…..Enjoy…..

Michaele Steele tells fellow GOPer's ……'Putup…or Shut up'!……

Actually……..he said it this way……

“I’m telling them and I’m looking them in the eye and say I’ve had enough of it. If you don’t want me in the job, fire me. But until then, shut up. Get with the program or get out of the way.”

— RNC Chairman Michael Steele, in an ABC News Radio interview today, to a group of prominent Republicans who have blasted him over his leadership.

Blumenthal has a 30 point lead in the Connecticut Senate race…….

This from Public Policy Polling ……..

Blumenthal is unusually popular, especially in hyper partisan times when voters like few politicians. 59% have a favorable opinion of him to just 19% who see him negatively. It’s no surprise that he’s liked by 71% of Democrats and 60% of independents, but even Republicans view him favorably by a 37/35 margin. It doesn’t take a lot of hands to count the number of Democratic politicians with positive numbers among GOP voters these days.

Blumenthal leads Rob Simmons 59-28, Linda McMahon 60-28, and Peter Schiff 63-23. It would take an epic collapse for him not to be Connecticut’s next Senator.

Nuff said!……..

Update:……here’s the Rasmussen Poll for the race from Merlin…..

Rasmussen confirms PPP. Blumenthal up BIG in Connecticut Senate

Merlin on Interior Secretary Ken Salazar's next move……..Does he go?….Does he stay?

Well what do you know….ole’ Merlin’s working overtime today!…..Here’s his thoughts on Ken Salazar, and the Colorado Governor’s race……
If  the Democrats are smart…..  they should  let  Ken Salazar stay where he is and focus their Attention on democratic Denver Mayor John Hicklooper .

Salazar got elected to the Senate in 2004 with Obama…… in 2008,  Salazar probably thought……’ ok, I’m joining the Presidents Administration.’

Now…….. with one year in as Interior Secretary…… I’m going back to Colorado to run for Governor?

That doesn’t make an awful lot of sense to me.

Secondly…….

The Landscape in Colorado is different now then when Salazar ran for the Senate, in 2004.

Democrats are really stumbling in the Rocky Mountain West……

Heck…… even known Pollster PPP thinks Salazar is IFFY.

http://publicpolicypolling.blogspot.com/2010/01/iffy-on-salazar.html

If I put my money on even…… that Salazar is seriously considering running…… he’ll opt against it.

Hickenlooper will clear the Primary Field, and he’ll be the next Governor of Colorado.

If Salazar does run ……it will be a very close Race and he could actually lose it.

Mark my words.

The President wore a "Weatherproof" brand jacket in China…..why can't the company advertise that?

The President of the United States like everyone else wears a jacket when it gets cold.…..he wears that jacket in public…….last Novemeber he was in China….looking at the Great Wall…and it was cold….so….he had a ‘Weatherproof ‘brand jacket on…..the people who make that jacket found that out when they saw a picture of President in the jacket, and now they  have a big bill board picture of that up in New York City’s Times Square…….

Well, when the media found about this they of course ran back to tell the White House……..The White House has quietly let it be know that the company did not get the White house ‘permission’ to use the picture of the President……..oh, yea…..the company brought the rights to use the picture from AP, the photographers company…..

Don’t come to me with this one.….because if the President of the United States is standing in public wearing that jacket….I really don’t think he needs to give anyone ‘permission’ to use that picture…..since when does the this politician own the pictures taken in public?

They didn’t set the picture up…they just brought it…...

Take a look at the picture….the guy looks damn good in the jacket………
