  1. yeah james, more balance is good. you are a just left of center dem. a little more moderate. im furthur left. but not as left as daniel was in 2008 with obama over hillary. i was considered more moderate by picking hillary. now im a lefty according to daniel. ironic huh? he fought me all 2008 long against hillary the more moderate candidate than liberal obama but that was his guy. now he is a teabagger. strange conversion.

  2. He, he, he….we’ll get there……

    And I thought Hillary would be better…..

    She definitely has her mark on foreign policy…and she is working tireslessly…

    But I must admit Obama is a born politician…..

    Not perfect…but able to work his magic at home and abroad….

    He still needs some work…but….

    He is a welcomed change……

  4. james,

    I’m pretty disappointed in Terry. Saying that I would hijiack your Blog.

    Don’t forget who helped you grow “The Dog”. I can EASILY go to SE on Conservative State Project.

    Don’t allow Terry to hijack our Partnership & Friendship.

  10. Morning Partner,

    I’ve some very interesting Polls out for you james this morning:

    1. A new RAS Poll in Texas shows White within 4 of Perry!!!!

    2. A new Q-Pac Poll in Florida for the Governor Race shows Sink within 4 of McCollum

    3. A new Western New England College Survey in Massachusetts shows the Governor Race at 34 % for Patrick, 29 % for Cahill and 27 for Baker.

    4. Despite Pataki dropping out of the NY-SEN Race Gillibrand isn’t well liked. More interesting though is that Blakeman DOES NOT lead the Republican Primary; Levy creaps closer to Lazio in GOP Governor Primary.

    I’ll have an in depth look at all these Polls.

    Pretty good Polling Day for your gang so far.

  17. Daniel and James B, former Georgia Governor Roy Barnes (D) is edging closer to getting back at the Executive Mansion come January 10, 2011 as polls showing him either leading or within striking distance of either Oxendine, Handel or Neal.

    Barnes, if he wins, is going to be one of the few bright spots come November and we might see the following:
    Governor Roy Barnes (D-GA)
    Governor Jerry Brown (D-CA)
    Governor John Kitzhaber (D-OR)
    Governor Terry Branstad (R-IA)

    Keep an eye on Maryland because Ehrlich is closing in on O’Malley, who maybe overstaying his welcome after 4 years in Annapolis.

  56. Im just caught where I got the 4% from…..Perry is not doing so good….

    Comment by jamesb101 | April 21, 2010 | Reply

    • It’s EARLY and Perry still has time and Paul Burka of TX Monthly mentioned in his post on TX Monthly that the governor has a 5% lead on Independents and 3 out of 4 of them vote Republican in general elections.

      http://www.texasmonthly.com/burkablog/

      He still has MORE TIME to get it together and look for him to run positive TV ads featuring his entire family (see the 2002 campaign), boast about his accomplishments over the past 10 years and his plans on the next 4 years.
