commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Megan McCain disses the Tea Party Crowd……and her Dad?…..

McCain’s daughter, Meghan, God love her, has entered into the Tea Party fray, too. Sure, Tancredo dissed her daddy, but given her history as “Miss Independent,” far from being her father’s political puppet, I wouldn’t be too quick to assume her latest comments are mere posturing.

As a guest-host on ABC’s “The View” on Monday, Meghan had some choice words for Tancredo and the Tea Party movement. As Salon.com’s Tracy Clark-Flory reports, she referenced Tancredo’s suggestion to bring back literacy tests and said it was no different from the literacy tests that prevented some African-Americans from voting up until the 1960s. Meghan continued:

“It’s innate racism and I think it’s why young people are turned off by this movement. And I’m sorry, but revolutions start with young people, not with 65-year-old people talking about literacy tests and people who can’t say the word ‘vote’ in English.”

Check this out.…..

The man’s daughter has never been afraid to go her own way …..or speak her mind…just like her father…...

Obama's support stays with him………

Contrary to a lot of Republicans ‘s chatting……President Obama ‘s poll numbers have  remained virtually the same through this turbulent period with Healthcare……a  new Public Policy Polling poll finds things not too bad for the new president (and Pew Polling agree\’s)….

This just confirms that the people who didn’t like him before the election  last  November, and didn’t vote for him….Don’t like him now…. either……..

A surprise in the data is that Independents have come back to supporting a Healthcare bill…….I guess the speech and work by Baucus has nullified the August noise from the Tea Partyer’s and smash mouth Town Hall encounters…….
