Daniel……The Pennsylvania – 12 Special Election will be a Referendum on the passed Health Care Reform Plan

Hello Dog Folks!

It’s heating up.

Just this week after Florida State Senator Ted Deutch (D-FL) won the Special Election in FL-19 “The Dog” claimed as well as the President, that Deutch’s Victory was a Referendum on the passed Health Care Reform Plan.

I SHARPLY DISAGREED over it because:

1. Republican Ed Lynch had almost NO MONEY


2. You would expect Democrats electing a Democrat in a STAUNCHLY PVI D + 15 District.

So, they did a nice Spin Try on this. They both are fools.

Yesterday we got the exceptional good News that Republican Charles Djou (R-HI) leads in the Hawaii Special Election.

Today I just have to laugh at Democrat Mark S. Critz (D-PA) who is running in PA-12 to fill the partial Term of the late John Murtha (D-PA). This fool has to cut an TV-Ad distancing himself from the unpoplar Plan.


Mark my words: The PA-12 will be a Referendum on the Plan and if WE win this Election we’re in very good shape for November.

On the heels of that Ad PPP’s Tom Jensen who will have a Poll out next week for this District posts the following on his Twitter:

http://twitter.com/ppppolls/status/12351715333 and I quote: “Obama massively unpopular in the District, Race surprisingly close given that.

So, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Republican Tim Burns (R-PA) is leading here. This is a PVI R + 1 District BUT given that PA Governor Ed Rendell (D-PA) has put the Date of this Vote on the exact same Day of the Pennsylvania Primaries we’ve still a very uphill Battle here.

Still, the initial Observation Jensen sees looks good for us.

Yo Daniel!….my claim was the election was NOT connected to Healthcare….. which I think has passed its high point…The GOP wants to keep the fight over the Healthcare Bill alive …It won’t work.….

Here’s the quote from the Fl-19th Special post from the Dog……

“In EVERY Election after now …Healthcare will pay a bit part…….”

Also my mention of Lynch’s lack of money in the heavy democratic leaning district…….

To be fair…Lynch had almost no money in this heavy Democratic Congressional District…….”

The GOP is trying to ride that tired horse at their own risk……

That Dog isn’t going to hunt……

Nuff Said……..

(He, he, he…this reminds me of my early days at P1!……Love it! )
